Dating Russian women is popular in the online dating scene. It can be a very enjoyable experience if you know what you are doing. We realize that women have similarities, but there are some things strongly influenced by culture. If you want your dating to be successful, you need to know about cultural differences.

1. Defining relationships.

Russian womenIn the Russian dating culture, there is no such thing as dating several people at the same time. In the States, if you’ve only gone out on a couple of dates with someone, that doesn’t mean you can’t go out with someone else as well. In Russia, that is a deal breaker. Once you start going out with someone, then that means it is exclusive. Dating several people is seen as cheating and isn’t forgiven.

2. Women are treated like ladies.

Russian culture is still rather conventional. Women were raised as princesses, and they expect to be treated as ladies. It has something to do with gender roles as well. Women are treated as the weaker sex and men are supposed to act like gentlemen. They need to do things such as opening the car door, helping women to their seat, pay for dates and so on.

3. Gifts.

Giving presents in Russia is very typical for almost any occasion. Bringing flowers to a date is also expected. Just like visiting a Russian household – you should bring presents for everyone in the family. Note that the presents don’t have to be expensive at all. In fact, if you flaunt your money you are looked down upon. Just bring something nice but inexpensive.

4. Women care about appearances.

You’ve probably notices that Russian women are always dressed to the nines. They dress up even if they are only going to the supermarket. Because they love to take care of their looks, they also expect their male counterpart to do the same. Eating healthy, working out and making sure you look good is a must when dating Russian ladies.
