All Russian women are always young. Foot the bill — no ifs, ands or buts here. In Russia, a woman expects you to pick up the bill on dates even when she is technically the one that invited you and even if you ordered a cup of coffee while she enjoyed a five-course meal with dessert. Yes, in Paris or New York, people tend to go halfsies on a bill. Carry the bags.
Let your love happen. If you want no disappointments - have no expectations, which is, knowingly, darn hard if you are strongly attracted to a charming woman. Before making a conversation and starting a relationship with a Russian woman, get maximally candid and tell yourself which way you want your communication with that lady to develop. Consider whether this is the right woman to invest your time in and what kind of experience you want to get. First, mind the right time for asking the girl out — you both must be ready and eager. Second, pick the right place, it is important to find the venue where you and your companion will feel comfortable — that is the basis for an open and easy-going conversation.
The dedication that Russian women have to look beautiful is just scary. For the majority of them life is like a podium, and so they have to look sparkling even on the way to get a newspaper or walking the dog. Also, during five years of teaching she has never appeared at school wearing the same outfit twice. Beauty is power and respect. The worst thing is that if you are going out with a Russian girl you will either have to dress up and put a lot of effort in looking nice, or everyone will be looking at you and wondering, how did a pretty lady like her end up with that slob?
Only yesterday I was approached four times. The problem is that all these men use all the same lines. Only once it was really sweet: I was walking in the Metro with my girlfriend and we were holding hands; there were too many people to walk hand in hand so we parted. And then this boy appeared, he took my hand, waved to my friend, and walked with me chatting about nothing specific.
