between American women and Russian women
American women are very different. These differences arise from the
ways they are brought up in their contrasting societies. Whilst
American women share more feministic views on a relationship between
a man and a woman, Russian women are more used to a patriarchal
social system in Russia.
Dating a Russian
woman vs Dating an American woman
For about a century
American women have been affected by feminism. As a result it became
almost impossible to court an American woman in a usual and
traditional way. This means that if a man is taking a woman out on a
date anywhere she prefers to go, the man may get in trouble for pay
for her meal or entertainment. Many actions a man does as a form of
courting can be evaluated as sexual or aggressive. Occasionally a
man ends up listening to the woman’s dissatisfactions or complaints
about men and her reasons for hating them. At the end of the date,
the American woman is likely to leave in her own car.
If a man is going
out on a date with a Russian woman, she will expect him to romance
and court her. A Russian woman will expect him to pick her up and
bring her home. He will get a funny look from a Russian woman if he
doesn’t open the door for her, if he doesn’t help her take her coat
off, if he doesn’t help her get into her seat at a restaurant and in
general if he doesn’t act like a real gentleman should on a date. In
Russian culture, the woman’s independence from the man is not
something that should be demonstrated during the date. A good sense
of humor is also very welcome.
Marrying a Russian
Woman vs. Marrying an American Woman
Many American women
want to make an impression that they are completely independent.
They do not need a man to make their life complete and more happier.
Men, who are attracted by these (free) women, can often find great
friendship and build a strong partnership with an American woman. An
American woman is not afraid to show her power, and often puts
herself in the first place when she plans her career and life.
Russian women are
usually less self-reliant. A woman will often need her man’s opinion
and advice about anything. Her aim is to share her experiences with
her man and she expects the same in return. A Russian woman will
often follow her husband to the end of the world, and will only make
an important decision about her life with his support and agreement.
Growing old with a
Russian woman vs growing old with an American woman
An American woman’s
prerogative is being successful in life. The opinion of her
colleagues and friends is very important and should not be
sacrificed under any situation. She will often keep appearances and
will try to look happy even when she is disappointed or upset. If a
man wants to spend the rest of his life with an American woman, he
definitely needs to learn to take care of himself, which involves
taking care of kids and doing his own laundry for example. An
American woman will often be busy doing her own work, building her
career and following her own goals.
Men tend get
spoiled with Russian women’ care, love and affection. A Russian
woman usually creates a more traditional family. She will do the
chores and the man will provide for the family. Though, for a
Russian woman the happiness and wellbeing of her children are very
important, which is why she will often combine taking care of the
house with working if it means that they will have a better future.
Comments from the web:
- The tendency for American women to have masculine personality
characteristics, which are nasty and unattractive, vs a Russian
woman who will tend to be feminine through and through.
I am a Russian woman and I like a man who is respectful, kind …
someone who wants to listen to what I have to say and can hold a
conversation. I like men who are forgiving, shy and calm. I don't
like them too wild. Also, have this smile that makes me melt inside.
In fact, it’s widely agreed among the well-traveled that the USA has
among the most unapproachable and anti-social women in the world.
Even in other Westernized countries like France, Canada, England,
Sweden, Australia or Italy, where young women are also known to be
snobby, at least they are still far more down to earth, approachable
and social than American women (and I think much more cultured as
well). Even their closest counterparts in Britain aren’t nearly as
unapproachable, but have much better conversation skills, and are
Well I am a Russian and I just like it for a man to be himself.. he
should be caring, gentle, knows how to treat a woman.. can make her
smile and laugh whenever she's upset.. can make her feel protected
and just have a good personality and I don't want him to be really
