Elenas Models is a long standing Russian datingsite. Established in 1999, this website has quite name for arranging marriages between Russian (and Ukrainian) women and western men. According to the website, they have about 1 million members of which are 200.000 regularly active. Every week about a 100 women are added to their database.
The design and interface of Elenas models looks basic and using it is quite straightforward. SIgn up is free, but communication tools and additional services (as translations) cost extra. The search function works well and you can find women on all kinds of characteristics imaginable. On first sight, there is a lot of choice from attractive women. However, the website contains a lot of “too good to be true” profiles. Many women on the website are clearly orchestrated to communicate with you. If a message you send is answered (about 1/10), it will be responded by long drawn out request for more communication – or any other way to extract money from you. Most women on the website are looking for a financial sponsor it seems – and not for a serious relationship with a western husband or boyfriend.
All in all we can classify Elenas Models for now as a “scammers” haven. It might have been better in the past but its staff does not have a good hold on the datingsite anymore, it seems. We would advice you to avoid Elenas Models and if you do register, beware. Overall we think there are many other and better options to meet Russian and Ukrainian women.
