Browse & Search Profiles

Once you’re finished working on your dating profile it’s time to look for your ideal match. When you’re browsing, you can see single Russian members based on their latest online activity. The plus side is you can look at profiles of members from different backgrounds, dating goals, ages, and much more.

If you already know the characteristics you want in a Russian match, use TrulyRussian’s Advanced Search feature. Fill it up with the qualities of your ideal match (it’s not required to complete the form), and a list of suitable members will then be recommended based on the information you’ve given.

Share Photos

The best way to attract members is to share your most recent and best-looking photos. This gives the other members the chance to have a look at how you live your life and what you’re looking for in a match. TrulyRussian has made that possible.

To get your photos up go to your profile and click Manage Photo. Then select the method to get your photos. One is by taking a snapshot from your device. This can be through your webcam or your mobile phone’s camera. Another is by uploading a photo that you already have stored on your device.

Instant Messaging & Video Chat

It’s time to put those charming skills of yours to the test by sending her a message. With TrulyRussian you’ll have two ways of communication. They are instant messaging and video chat.

Whether your match is online or offline, you can still drop them a message on the same message thread. But if the member you fancy is online, then it’s your lucky day. Video chat is best used with a webcam if you’re using a desktop computer or your phone’s camera if you’re on the app to make you closer even you are halfway around the world.
