Things to remember when you have a Russian girlfriend
About 90 percent of
all women in Russia are named Elena, Olga, Natalya, Svetlana,
Tatyana, Marina, Ludmila, Ekaterina, Anna, Daria, Alexandra, Irina
and Anastasia. That’s it. This can be a bit confusing. If you can’t
remember your Russian girlfriend’s first name ask her what her
second name is (pet name). Every girl in Russia has a second name,
for example Olga-Olya, Elena-Lena, Alexandra-Sasha, Ekaterina-Katya,
Your Russian girlfriend smarter than you are
education system is a very good education and respected above almost
everything else. Chances are that your Russian girlfriend not only
speaks German, Spanish, English and French, but also has a good
understanding and grasp of a lot of things that you (slept) through
Never forget the
8th of March and always
buy her flowers on this date.
A Russian girl is a princess
Russian girls are
brought up in the tradition of old-fashioned chivalry and deference
to the weaker sex. That means a man should open the door, carry the
bags, mend things, make tea in the morning, escort her to the bus
She has a mother…
mothers of that generation are convinced that foreigners are
godless, feckless, untrustworthy imps sent by Satan to steal their
daughters and carry them off to foreign countries. In other words,
they are amazingly well informed. You have two choices; get your act
together and behave like a decent human being or avoid the mother
like the plague.
Your food is not your own
It’s a well known
fact amongst men that women mysteriously become ravenously hungry
only when you happen to have a large plate of long-anticipated chips
in front of you. However, the effect does seem to be particularly
pronounced among Russian women, who claim to eat almost nothing.
Always, and we mean always, order more than you can possibly eat
because your stick-thin Russian girlfriend will inevitably develop
the appetite of a blue whale the moment her anxiously selected
(small salad) arrives.
You can kiss other girls
Your Russian lady
has female friends and it is perfectly acceptable, in fact
encouraged, for you to kiss all of them up to once every time you
see them. Exactly where you put your hands while you are doing this
is a real issue.
Walking is impossible
Part of the
chivalry thing mentioned above is the expectation that whenever you
are walking somewhere together she should have her arm looped
through yours. Down narrow and crowded streets this makes progress
is slow but sweet.
Comments from the web:
- I have seen American women in Wal-Mart in pajamas and bedroom
slippers. A Russian girl would die before she went to the store in her
pajamas!! And they love shoes with high heels!
- Russian girls love to read and know much about the rest of the
world. My wife's mother considers George Washington one of history's
great leaders. Enough said.
