Dating with a russian woman
And if you offer to share – you will never see her again, and not because the only thing she wanted from you was a free dinner, but because that is against the cultural norm.
Girls are never expected to plan the date – it is a man, who thinks, plans and surprises his princess. Girls are expected to be pretty, that is a skill that all Russian girls have mastered to a greatest extent.
Be aware that a girl will start preparing for the date with you minimum several hours in advance and maybe even several days in advance.
Dating here is similar to dating elsewhere in many ways; people are people and people all over the world are looking for love. The main difference is chivalry – Russian admirers are very romantic and they lavish objects of their affection with flowers, small and big gifts and romantic events.
Men will be very polite, will open doors in front of women, help them into coats and do all other similar things.
Make sure that you give odd number of flowers, since even number is for funerals only.
Also, try to avoid yellow flowers – they are a symbol of separation or break-up.
THE MAN will never allow a girl to carry anything heavier than a tiny purse and will always pick a bill at a restaurant.
The latter is expected in 100% of cases, so do not be surprised that the girl will not even offer to share.
Long-stemmed red roses are a safe bet and the most appreciated flowers, since they symbol love.
They are expensive, but no need to present a dozen or more – one red rose is considered equally romantic and will be much appreciated.
And she will invest a lot of money in expensive manicure and other beautification procedures and a lot of time and effort on choosing what to wear and on doing make up.
