How to Date Russian Women

This article is for men who want know how to date Russian women... successfully!

Due to the fact that Russian dating culture is different to that in most western cultures, the majority of men looking for a Russian partner experience significant problems. If you approach Russian dating using the wrong methods, you will also struggle to make it work.

So, let's look at what you can do to avoid the bad stuff most men experience, and get straight to the good stuff... a lifetime of love and happiness with a gorgeous Russian woman!

Dating Russian Women

If you're new to Russian dating, and you're not quite sure if a Russian woman is right for you or not, please also read Dating a Russian Woman. That article discusses the 7 hurdles of Russian dating, and the first hurdle will help you to decide if it's the right choice for you.

Now that you know how to meet Russian women, let's focus on some key steps in your courtship.

As mentioned, when you allow yourself to be open to the cold, hard fact that Russian dating is different, you'll begin to see why this is crucial if you really want to be in a serious relationship with a Russian woman.

Unfortunately, for a large percentage of people using the Russian dating services (this includes Russian women AND foreign men alike), this cultural difference prevents them from finding true love. What's worse is that this can easily be avoided if you simply find out why Russian relationships are different... and how to succeed.

The great news is that it can be done! And it's definitely worth it, when you get to experience the amazing love, passion and warmth of a Russian woman truly in love.

The Best Way to Date Russian Women...

1. Greeting her for the first time

When you first greet a Russian woman, it is customary to shake hands - NOT to kiss her on the cheek. Obviously, you should not shake her hand too firmly (you don't want to crush her delicate fingers!), nor too softly. Greet her with a pleasantly firm handshake and look her in the eyes to show you are open and honest.

2. Your first date

Dress appropriately. If you're in Russia, this means dress smartly, and dress according to where you're taking her.

Take her somewhere nice where you can talk and get to know each other.  A cafe or restaurant is often a good choice, but be creative and think about what interests your particular lady has.

Bring flowers. Russian women are used to men who show their interest and present her with signs of their romantic interest.

3. Etiquette

Chivalry is key. In many western societies, the much-needed reforms for equality between the sexes has also resulted in a loss of chivalry and traditional relationships between men and women.

In Russian society, however, men still act very much in a chivalrous manner, by opening doors for women, helping them with their coats, and so forth.

4. Money

Ok, this is always a topic of interest!

You should know that Russian men ALWAYS pay for their women. This means that a Russian woman will not have to pay for her meal, for instance, if she is out with her husband / boyfriend, as well as her father, brother, and any other male friends.

Please remember this important point. If you are not willing to pay for your girlfriend while you are dating her, she will consider you to be greedy. I know this may seem harsh, but please remember it's simply one of the important differences in culture that you need to know to date Russian women.

(This doesn't mean you shouldn't be smart and thorough and look for the tell-tale signs of the small percentage of women who are scammers.)

5. Be in control

Russian women will always be comparing you to men in their own country. Yes, there are some qualities of Russian men that do NOT appeal to Russian women (such as alcoholism and physical violence), but on the whole, there are many fine traits, such as generosity, and their caring and strong nature.

When you date Russian women, you should take control always, by organising everything and making sure your lady is looked after.

6. Say it right

The biggest mistake most guys make when they date Russian women is that they don't take the time to learn Russian. Along with cultural challenges, the language barrier is the single biggest reason why these relationships fail.

From our own experiences (and from those of other guys who have done it before)... learning to speak Russian is the single most important thing you can do to improve your chances with Russian women. You will notice what a difference this makes straight away.

In our Russian Course for Lovers you will learn how to say hundreds of Russian phrases specific to relationships. This includes specific lessons for 7 different dating scenarios that you can put into use when you date Russian women.
