    Sorry, but you won’t find many people in Brazil speaking Spanish. They’re the largest Portugese speaking country in the world!

      Good catch. Here is what I found out: The official language of Brazil is Portuguese; however, there are more than 180 native languages spoken in the country. It is also important to note that Brazil is the only country in South America whose dominant language and culture comes from Portugal. Source

      Bad catch. He said Spanish is about the only FOREIGN language spoken there.

        I took foreign to mean “non english”. My experience in Rio was that there was some english in the tourist areas, but my workmate had to speak “spanugese” to be understood.

      It says foreign language. Not native language.

      It clearly says “Portuguese” while I’m looking at it, so maybe it’s been edited.

    Apart from the obvious racist overtones – I have to say I liked your list (and writing style) immensely. I wonder why Africa hasn’t started sending out mail order brides…

    I once worked with a flabby white guy who married a Columbian woman he met on the internet. He made it sound like he met her through some kind of forum. I always figured he bought her.

    What is a “Latino” race? I think you have to learn what race is. You have made that mistakes many times recently.

    Ukraine is not in close proximity to Europe-It is in Europe.

    It is spelled “Colombia” NEVER “Columbia”.

    Russia isn’t “one of the largest countries” it is the largest country.

    ummm… there’s no such thing as “low” divorce rate in the Philippines. In fact, divorce is NOT even practiced in the Philippines.

    I cannot believe they would post “since the drug wars and jungle fighting killed off (or imprisoned) many Colombian men, the competition for husbands is fiercer there than anywhere else in Latin America” What kind of asshole thinks only men die in a civil war?? The rebel forces also include women. The writer is an idiot!!!

    I wonder where the writer got his local sources, its a bit funny. But it was a good post overall apart from some racist accusations without evidence or maybe the writer got carried away. Why are there too much comments giving writers steak, why don’t readers try to write some toptenz instead of giving writer the steak for every little thing.

    As a girl, can I order a bride?

    I am retired, divorced and widowed. This brings me to the idea of a mail order bride. My kid is grown, I just want to travel and have a companion who is adorable and fun . I thought about central america. The Phillipines are a long way off. However their women are exceptional. My friend married a Dominican. Cute but boaring, his words. I am planning an overseas trip. who knows?

      What are you talking about ukrainian girls? My wife from Ukraine and she is more better that your russian ideals! You need look better. If you met one such like you wrote – it’s doesn’t mean that all of them these.

    What a wonderful discussion! I also use the bride site (mymagicbrides.com) and I feel wonderful about it. There are so many interesting women who I may talk to, discuss different topics and enjoy the time together. It’s so cool to have a real date after online communication when you already know this person and can trust her. Thanks for such sites.

    Dear Evan Ostryzniuk,

    I am surprised to hear you have Ukrainian girls and Russian girls ranked so low on the exoticism scale and claim: “Not so high, since Oksanas look no different from Western European girls.”
    And:
    “Place a Russian lady in a Western city and they tend to blend in quite well, aside from being overdressed and heavily made up. And slim.”

    I beg to differ with you, as someone who is Eastern European (My Mother’s side Russian and Ukrainian and My Father’s side Polish and Ukrainian).

    I can pick the one Ukrainian or Russian lady out of a crowded room each and every time. They do stand out other than “too much makeup, being overdressed or being slim”.
    The runways are filled with Eastern European beauties right now (and since the bloc fell) rather than the mostly the blue eyed Californian blondes of yesteryear for a reason. It is because of their exceptional beauty and yes “exotic” facial structure and cheekbones that are so easily picked out, and highly photogenic.

    Haven’t you ever seen the Ukrainian or Russian ladies that have an almost Asian shaped eye, while still being green eyed (without contact lenses). I would say very exotic.

    I have spent years nudging my Mom and motioning towards someone shopping at the grocery or the mall since I was young with the statement “She looks Russian or she looks Ukrainian!” Only to catch up to them and hear them speaking Russian, Ukrainian or some other Slavic language with their family or with an accent . I beg to differ with you that they do not merely “blend in with the crowd” and they carry themselves with confidence, not always seen in other women. My guess is you would not have been trolling mail-order bride sites when you finally found your Ukrainian wife, if they didn’t 😉

    India shouldn’t be on the list of mail-order bride countries at all, since even the author who made this top ten claims arranged marriages is a different pratice all together. For one thing arranged marriages can be planned for looking out for either grooms or brides, unlike the whole one dimensional mail-order bride services. Also arranged marriages can be found in not only south-asia, but also in Africa, east-asia, Israel, many Muslims countries and many NativE American groups found in Latin america. I feel that only reason India is here it’s mainly because Mail-order bride type is mostly white western male pratice, which is why many of them wish deep down that indian brides would be easy to order out and exploit like many other type of women on this globe.

    It’s also funny to see how much the author dislike and pick on thai women, because no matter the fault that many thai women may have. It’s still true that thai women in the end of the day love and worships white men more like they are god’s gift to women.. It’s will sadden many Thai women out there that many white western men don’t hold them in very good light.

    I can agree with Philippines, Russia, Ukraine, Thailand among the top countries for mail order brides .. but countries like India should not be in this list – though India may be a poor country, marrying a foreigner for money or better life is definitely not in there in Indian culture.
