Anastasia Date (formerly known as Anastasia Web) is an online dating site that is verifiable and secure. It has thousands of Russian and Ukrainian women, who are purportedly seeking serious relations and even marriage with men from anywhere else in the world. If you are a single women, you can’t just sign up for the site; you have to go through a totally different process of application in order to confirm that you do really live in Russia (or Eastern Europe). In addition, your profile and emails will be monitored to make sure you aren’t trying to get around the system or cheat the male members who pay for the site.

Contacting the ladies on Anastasia Date is a bit different than most of the other dating sites, and that would be because all of the emails of the women are monitored by staff. Apparently, to keep the legitimacy and good reputation of the site. There is also the need for translating most written correspondence, and this is included in the fees of the site. Personally, I would find this type of constant email monitoring uncomfortable.
AnastasiaDate operates on a system of credits: sending OR reading a letter = 10 credits, each minute of chat = 1 credit, each minute of video chat = 2 credits. You can earn free credits by referring friends and doing certain account actions such as booking a free tour deposit (1000 credits), completing your profile (5 credits) or watching a video of one of the ladies (1 credit).
Credits costs are:
- 1000 credits for $399.00
- 500 credits for $249.00
- 320 credits for $185.00
- 160 credits for $96.00
- 80 credits for $56.00
- 40 credits for $30.00
- 20 credits for $15.99
So in essence, simply opening and reading a message you receive from a woman on Anastasia Web will cost you anywhere from $4 to $8, depending on the credit package you get.
With this business model, there is a real possibility of the website hiring girls to “perform” by chatting and sending messages just to get your money.
At AnastasiaDate, if you want to stop using the service, you have to give written notice, and unused credits will expire after 365 days. The women of AnastasiaDate are not allowed to have any kind of registration or participation in the database or website of other dating sites or similar competing services.
Now here’s the weird part for me: it is “strictly forbidden” to share URLs, email addresses, physical addresses or phone numbers with any other member. Now correct me if I’m wrong, but if you want a serious relationship with someone, aren’t you going to have to eventually take things off the dating website?
