Elena’s Models’ mission is to help you meet “Russian girls of model quality” who are interested in marrying foreign men. While this claim may seem hard to deliver, the site has some great features that can make your dream of having a beautiful Russian bride come true:
- This company has been in business since 1999, and shortly after its founding, Elena’s Models has risen to the top as one of the most trusted sites on the Internet for finding a Russian bride.
- The site’s owner, Elena, knows this stuff since she met and married a Western man this way. She’s also the author of e-books like How To Find And Marry A Girl Like Me.
- >Elena’s Models focuses exclusively on Eastern European women, with thousands of active (according to their site) profiles of women mostly from Russia, Ukraine, Romania and Bulgaria.
- The site is tough on spammers and scammers, so you can feel secure and confident that you’re corresponding with a real person.
- A new feature is the personal matchmaking service that will help you with one-on-one interactions.
- FREE Silver membership – pay $15 per contact – unlimited e-mail to that contact
- Gold membership for 3 months: $99 – 6 months:$149 – 12 months: $197.50 – Gold membership includes 50 contacts – Unlimited e-mail
- Platinum Membership – $499 for 6 months, $259 for 3 months – Includes unlimited contacts, Direct e-mail addresses (where available), top of search result pages and photo ad on their Russian site, unlimited “Expressions of Interest” and more.
- This site is best only if you want to meet someone from Eastern Europe, not elsewhere.
- There actually are some models on the site, but many of these women are choosy and do not respond to most expressions of interest.
How it Works
It’s simple and free to browse the Russian and Ukrainian personals. You can search the personals listings by the usual age, height, weight, but also things like minimum level of English and astrological sign. More than other sites I’ve reviewed, many of these women have a decent level of English, which will make an eventual in-person meeting much more enjoyable and successful. Of course the site also offers paid translation services to help you with any of these sexy Eastern European girls! Elena’s models also helps arrange everything in order for you to meet the woman you are interested in, or can put you on a romance tour where you can meet dozens of women in a single week.
One nice feature of the site is that the profiles list an “expression of interest response rate,” which I like because you have a good indication about how invested this beautiful Russian woman might be in finding a serious relationship. Among the paid services, the Weekly Ladies Catalog is the best deal because you get contact information for all the new ladies that have joined in the previous 4 weeks. More importantly, these women tend to have the highest response rate. Of course you can also search and sort the profiles by the Last Login Time so that you are looking at the most active profiles of Russian women (or whichever country you prefer). One of the best things about the site is that it focuses as much on the women as on the men, so another way to go about things is to take the reverse approach and search for a Ukrainian woman looking for a man like you! You’re guaranteed she’ll be interested that way.
I like to view Elena’s Models more as a personal matchmaker than has a Russian bride catalog. With happy clients from 150 countries, and tons of glowing testimonials on the site, Elena’s Models is a really inspiring place to find love. The Weekly Ladies Catalog makes it a no-brainer to start writing to lots of Russian women at one of the best prices on the Internet. There are a 100 new Eastern European girls joining per week, one of whom might be your wife someday soon! It’s free to join and search, so check it out!

Elena's Models used to be a good site, but in my experience they do not remove the profile of scammers even after they are reported with proof. I submitted evidence on Skype of a lady asking money for rent, but all they did was warn her. My conclusion is that they actually protect scammers these days.
I disagree with your review of Elena’s Models. I have been on the website for over 2 months and EVERY woman I have met and talked with so far was running a scam of some type. I have had extensive conversations with 7 women now and all ended the same. Some were translator scams, others were women that wanted me to send them money to come to the U.S. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that all of the women cant be trusted, but I haven’t met one yet that can. Maybe at one point it was a good place to find an honest, loving wife… but now the word is out on the street and the scammers are filling the profiles with lies and waiting for someone to take the bait. I will never be a victim of these scams because my rule is never, for any reason, send money to someone you have not spent time with in person – under any circumstances.
I agree Jeff, that you should never send money until you have met the lady in person. You do have to be careful and I would tell them up front that you will not be sending money and then let them decide if they want to continue the conversation.
