), the gratuitous rugs (hey, it gets cold in Russia!

The relationship status “It’s complicated” has never been more factual than it is right now.From friends with benefits, exclusively dating to open relationships, the dating world seems to be more complex than just the courtships and boyfriend-girlfriends relationships of the past.The Internet has made finding love a lot less daunting then it used to be, but it’s a double edged sword – having more to reveal can be good OR bad, depending on what you post, and in Russia, it seems that anything goes in the world of online dating. They’re all looking for that one person, that one Mr. Right who finally gets them (and their giant fish, or heap of trash).You either get people who lie massively up until the point where you meet their true and decisively unimpressively selves, or people who put their worst foot forward from the get go.
There are blogs upon blogs dedicated to horrible dating website profiles. Russia is basically the weirdest – and not in the cute Japanese way – place on earth. Yet despite it all, it has produced some of the most amazing artists of all fields.

I’m lucky enough to have avoided online dating for a number of years, but one thing I remember from those days is that your dating profile must stand out.
