In the realm of online dating, Russian women rank very high on the list of prospective partners and wives. That is mainly because of the attractive qualities they possess. Now, let’s say you’ve met a woman from Russia and plan to meet her for the first face to face meeting. This article offers helpful tips about what may come your way when visiting your Russian date.

Tip no. 1 – You need a Visa

It doesn’t matter where on the planet you are from – everyone needs a visa to get into the country. It is compulsory for all nationalities. When applying for a visa always refer to the official Russian consulate in your country in order to secure the visa. That is because every country may have different rules around applying for one.

Russian dateTip no. 2 – For Language Issues

Russian women are learning English more and more to communicate with the world but there still at the early stages of English literacy. So when you talk to one of these ladies and you figure out that their English isn’t that good, just speak slowly and use easier words. You may even show more effort on your part and pick up a small Russian-English travel dictionary and ask her to help you with learning some basics. In return you can help her better her language skills. It is best to communicate as much as you can via Skype so you can develop a communication style that suits you both.

Tip no. 3 – Hotels

A good thing about Russia is that you can book hotels online and don’t have to worry about a thing when it comes to accommodation. Simply book it from home and you will have it waiting for you when you arrive. The best idea is to ask your special lady friend for advice so you can stay close to where she lives for convenience. You may be thinking that you could also stay with your online dating partner but it isn’t a smart idea provided that it is the first time you see each other and that way you don’t put unnecessary strain on the relationship. Another reason to stick with the hotel is that you will be in an environment that is close to what you are accustomed.

Tip no. 4 – Transportation

Most people in Russia use public transport, though foreigners take taxis for convenience. If possible, ask your date to arrange for someone to pick you up from the airport. If not then try the hotel. That is due to the taxis at the airport being very expensive. The fact is that the more money you save on transport is more you can spend on your dates. A useful tip: have someone at the hotel write down the address of where you are going in Russia, so you can communicate with the driver. Also always have your hotel card with you so you can show where you are going.
