Russian women are family-oriented and prefer their men to be the head of the households. However, they are far from submissive. They are intelligent; usually, well-educated and are not afraid to speak their mind. That is part of the reasons why men like to date or marry them.

This is a custom design originally created for a Russian dating blog.

  1. First off – I have to say I absolutely love this theme!!! I am a beach lover and am planning to use it for my personal blog site.

    Question: I have no problem leaving the credit links in tact, however, I would prefer to see them open in a new window. Is there a way to accomplish this?


    • @Sally, glad to see you like the theme!

      I added target=”_blank” to the credit links of this theme so when click, it’ll open a new window. I’ll progressively update all my other themes with this code also.

  2. Если Россия – значит кремль и красавицы 🙂

  3. Brian,
    You are amazing — I have the beach holiday on two of my sites, notebook is on one, wooden fence is on one — I will definitely be using others for my other sites. i have 15 sites total and once i found your site — i began changing my themes.

    Again, thank you so much for sharing.

  4. I also love this theme but I am having some CSS compatibility issues with some of my plugins.

    I also wish there were a few more bells and whistles but overall I am pretty happy.
