Russian girls’ culture
characteristics of a Russian girl, one may address the Russian
history, Russian literature, the Russian mentality, art and the
Russian life. Though, there is always a chance to roll down to
declarations and generalizations of stereotypes. There is an opinion
that the Russian girls are kinder, caring, thoughtful, more focused
on a family than girls in other countries. It is certainly so,
however one should keep in mind, that every girl is a bright
individuality and the orientation exclusively on stereotypes can be
a very big mistake. Among Russian girls there are ones of different
ambitions, different character and different life goals.
Nevertheless there are things in Russian girls that distinguish them
from European and American girls.
The foreign men
married to Russian girls, agree that the Russian girls are wonderful
wives, they are kinder, more economic and carefully twist (a cozy
nest), know how to cook tasty home food with pleasure. But the
western girls also take care of families, also manage the home
business. Then, what distinguishes them?
American girls prefer a lot more personal space than Russian girls
do. In Russia, girls are comfortable talking with maybe a foot of
personal space between them, whereas American girls prefer closer to
three feet. American girls are very uncomfortable with (close
you) and (I'm sorry) or pretty much anything will make you look like
you can't be trusted in Russian culture. So, apologize once or say
thank you once, and then let your actions show that you mean it.
Repeating the same words to emphasize them will hurt your
credibility with a Russian girl.
American girls may
seem very open at first, but in reality it can take a very long time
to earn an American girls’ trust. American girls can even become
close friends, and then disappear suddenly from your life. This is
hard for Russian girls to understand because they value their
connections and friendships a great deal, perhaps more than American
girls who are used to moving away from family and friends as a part
of our lifestyle.
Dating. In Russia,
men are expected to pay for all of a girl's expenses when they are
on a date. If you offer to (Going Dutch) this can be very offensive,
like saying that you don't think he can afford it. Times are
changing, so this may not be as big of a deal as it once was. But
(feminism) is still frowned on by a majority of girls in Russia. In
Russia girls to dress attractively and men are expected to open
doors, carry your luggage, and give up seats for girls on public
transportation. They are not doing this to (control) the girls -
they are doing it out of respect.
