Since I’ve gone and caught myself a Russian man, I figure I’m relatively in-the-know about dating in Russia, if that’s you’re style. It is not uncommon for a Russian man to hold your hand or put his arm around even before the first date! Men will pick you up, open your doors, maybe even order for you.For some women this is quite difficult to handle (I was one of them).
So, how did Russian dating become your topic of interest?
Maybe you have developed a long distant relationship with an online match in Russia or are curious to ask out the cute Russian girl two doors down.
If you are intimately involved in Russian dating, understanding the Soviet people, their culture, and traditions is a vital process.
Traditions in Russia are more important than their laws.
Russian men conventionally have seen themselves as superior to women.
Historically in Russian families, women were expected to serve their men, take care of the children, and perform all household chores.Remain polite, but be firm when expressing your preferences.Most Russian men are raised assuming that this is their role when dating but are totally willing to be flexible. Unlike a lot of western women, Russian women obviously grow up expecting a not insubstantial gift for most holidays and occasions.When dating, it is essential to learn the traditional roles of men and women in Russia.Even if your date has already transitioned to a more modern view, keep in mind that some of his or her family may not have let go of their traditions.She grew up in the States but due to her heritage speaks fluent Russian.
