Not to be confused with all those thousands of profiles that say they are from "Kazan"!!
They are actually from Mari El, but just saying they are from Kazan.
If this is the kind of friends she has, it's her own problem. Those are small poor cities, located not even in the European part of Russia.
If any American girl put in her profile that "she searches for love online because everybody around her is a drug addict" what would you think about such girl?! I never saw any normal Russian girl putting something like that in her profile. Most of the scam originates from Mari El (the capital city is Yoshkar Ola, or Yoshka), but they very rarely put in their profiles that they are really from Mari El or Yoshkar Ola. But when you look at all those Russian profiles, it seems like most people in Russia live in Kazan, Kirov or Cheboksary! Another important point I need to make about location.
I like a smart, honest man, who has a good sense of humor.
I would like to meet a man who likes this life, enjoys it, who loves children and does want to have friendly family." Whenever you read this, just turn around and go! Enter the sentence from her profile description in quotes in Google.
I always have many friends in my house as I am able to listen to a person and to support him both in his hard times and the happiest moments.
