Alisa Marushchak, 20.
‘There are almost no available men where I live. Even in high school there were 25 girls but just 5 boys. Then I entered university where I met a nice guy from Zimbabwe. We were going to get married, and I even bought a ticket to Zimbabwe, but a war broke out in his country so I didn’t go.’
Alisa’s ideal man is pictured in the above sketch. He would be between 27-33 years old and be a man of character and solid morals. A perfect scenario would be a Russian man with some American character traits. She thinks that Russian men are spoiled and do not appreciate the beauty of Russian girls. Besides, she believes they demand too much from a woman. They think a wife should look good, take care of the children, go to work and do housekeeping, but what do women get in return? Nothing.
