How to impress a Russian girl
Russian girls are perceived usually as feminine, pretty with a good
taste for cloths and elegant. No wonder that many men from different
countries ask us how to deal with a Russian girl they will meet.
of all, you do have to behave no worse than Russian men do. (some
Russian men are gentlemen), they open doors and let girls always
first through the door whether into (or out from) the restaurant,
store, car or through any other door. The popular welcome among
people (both, men and girls) on a personal level is a kiss in right
and left cheek. But do not try to kiss her in a cheek during the
first welcome this may be seen as too arrogant and intrusive into
personal space. Very elegant and old habit is to kiss a girl hand by
a man during welcome. This habit is fading away, or it is being
restricted only towards old ladies to show a respect. But you need
to know how to kiss a hand properly, if you are not sure how forget
about it because the effect may be opposite from expected.
Typical Russian men also would offer help to care a heavy luggage or
suitcase to a lady. One of our agency’s employee remember when she
was waiting for her luggage in Moscow airport in Russia after coming
back from Turkey at least two men were ready to take her luggage
from the rolling conveyor belt immediately and give it to her. It
was very nice since in Europe, America, and other countries the
equal rights seem to destroy good habits between genders.
really want to win a girl's heart bring a fresh flower on a first
date. In Russia flowers are given on many occasions like weddings,
birthdays etc. If you are invited to visit a Russian house you are
expected to bring a souvenir - usually flowers for a hostess, in
some occasions also a good bottle of wine for a host. Flowers,
beautiful flowers are available in Russia everywhere, especially on
the farmers markets. So, please, do not forget about a flower unless
it is a winter and flowers may be just too expensive or
go to the restaurant try to be elegant, always ask first what she
wants to eat etc. Let her sit first in the restaurant. Pour a water
or wine to her glass first. But do not be pushy and do not ask her
to drink more. Do not drink too much also. Alcoholism is a social
problem in Russia among the men. You may lose all your chances if
you would be tipsy or drunk.
Remember the first impression is very important. Do not tell her
that you love her immediately. Do not try to impress her by talking
only about your achievements. Listen to her, sense of humor could be
helpful in your first conversation. Try to show that you are a
strong, intelligent, self-assured but not too self-centered and the
most important show that you are protective of her. For instance if
you would leave the restaurant and it would be cold and she would
have only a light dress on offer your jacket to her.
the bill in the restaurant or movie theater at least the first time.
In Russia splitting the bill in restaurants is not common.
Russian girls are usually good cooks (besides teenager-girls). When
she invites you for a dinner
bring a flower and appreciate the food.
If you would try to fix food for her it would be even better.
learn some Russian words. Below is a sample:
Hello – Privet
How are you? – Kak dzela
Please - Pozhaluysta
You are so beautiful - Ti ochen krasivaya
Bye – Poka
Thank you - Spasiba
few words about a personal distance. People in different countries
and cultures have different distance in which they feel comfortable.
Russian girls do need to have their space, do not come closer than
on the arm's length unless you are dancing or you hold her hand. Do
not look persistently in her eyes this might be seen as encroachment
or intrusion in her private space. Be an observer, but a friendly
observer and give her some space.
The last but most
important tip to remember:
A Russian girl is usually
not a modern type of a liberated girl. She takes a commitment very
seriously. So, be aware!
Comments from the web:
- The most western of the Slavic countries, Russian girls have all
the benefits of the iconic Slavic girl combined with a far more
educated point of view. Fair skin, delicate facial features and
striking blue eyes are the stereotypical hallmarks of a Russian girl.
While very sexy, they know it themselves all too well. Most speak good
English, are immensely patriotic and have a strangely dry to dark
sense of humor that can be outright confusing at first. They make it
to number one on the basis that the sheer number of stunning Russian
girls at both home and abroad is mind-blowing, often with wonderful
personalities to match.
