How to impress a Russian girl

russian girl

Russian girls are perceived usually as feminine, pretty with a good taste for cloths and elegant. No wonder that many men from different countries ask us how to deal with a Russian girl they will meet.

First of all, you do have to behave no worse than Russian men do. (some Russian men are gentlemen), they open doors and let girls always first through the door whether into (or out from) the restaurant, store, car or through any other door. The popular welcome among people (both, men and girls) on a personal level is a kiss in right and left cheek. But do not try to kiss her in a cheek during the first welcome this may be seen as too arrogant and intrusive into personal space. Very elegant and old habit is to kiss a girl hand by a man during welcome. This habit is fading away, or it is being restricted only towards old ladies to show a respect. But you need to know how to kiss a hand properly, if you are not sure how forget about it because the effect may be opposite from expected.

Typical Russian men also would offer help to care a heavy luggage or suitcase to a lady. One of our agency’s employee remember when she was waiting for her luggage in Moscow airport in Russia after coming back from Turkey at least two men were ready to take her luggage from the rolling conveyor belt immediately and give it to her. It was very nice since in Europe, America, and other countries the equal rights seem to destroy good habits between genders.

If you really want to win a girl's heart bring a fresh flower on a first date. In Russia flowers are given on many occasions like weddings, birthdays etc. If you are invited to visit a Russian house you are expected to bring a souvenir - usually flowers for a hostess, in some occasions also a good bottle of wine for a host. Flowers, beautiful flowers are available in Russia everywhere, especially on the farmers markets. So, please, do not forget about a flower unless it is a winter and flowers may be just too expensive or inaccessible.

If you go to the restaurant try to be elegant, always ask first what she wants to eat etc. Let her sit first in the restaurant. Pour a water or wine to her glass first. But do not be pushy and do not ask her to drink more. Do not drink too much also. Alcoholism is a social problem in Russia among the men. You may lose all your chances if you would be tipsy or drunk.

Remember the first impression is very important. Do not tell her that you love her immediately. Do not try to impress her by talking only about your achievements. Listen to her, sense of humor could be helpful in your first conversation. Try to show that you are a strong, intelligent, self-assured but not too self-centered and the most important show that you are protective of her. For instance if you would leave the restaurant and it would be cold and she would have only a light dress on offer your jacket to her.

Pay the bill in the restaurant or movie theater at least the first time. In Russia splitting the bill in restaurants is not common.

Russian girls are usually good cooks (besides teenager-girls). When she invites you for a dinner bring a flower and appreciate the food. If you would try to fix food for her it would be even better.

Try to learn some Russian words. Below is a sample:

Hi / Hello – Privet
How are you? – Kak dzela
Please - Pozhaluysta
You are so beautiful - Ti ochen krasivaya
Bye – Poka
Thank you - Spasiba

Now a few words about a personal distance. People in different countries and cultures have different distance in which they feel comfortable. Russian girls do need to have their space, do not come closer than on the arm's length unless you are dancing or you hold her hand. Do not look persistently in her eyes this might be seen as encroachment or intrusion in her private space. Be an observer, but a friendly observer and give her some space.

The last but most important tip to remember:

A Russian girl is usually not a modern type of a liberated girl. She takes a commitment very seriously. So, be aware!

Comments from the web:

- The most western of the Slavic countries, Russian girls have all the benefits of the iconic Slavic girl combined with a far more educated point of view. Fair skin, delicate facial features and striking blue eyes are the stereotypical hallmarks of a Russian girl. While very sexy, they know it themselves all too well. Most speak good English, are immensely patriotic and have a strangely dry to dark sense of humor that can be outright confusing at first. They make it to number one on the basis that the sheer number of stunning Russian girls at both home and abroad is mind-blowing, often with wonderful personalities to match.
