Things to remember when you have a Russian girlfriend

russian girlfriend

- Her name

About 90 percent of all women in Russia are named Elena, Olga, Natalya, Svetlana, Tatyana, Marina, Ludmila, Ekaterina, Anna, Daria, Alexandra, Irina and Anastasia. That’s it. This can be a bit confusing. If you can’t remember your Russian girlfriend’s first name ask her what her second name is (pet name). Every girl in Russia has a second name, for example Olga-Olya, Elena-Lena, Alexandra-Sasha, Ekaterina-Katya, etc.

- Your Russian girlfriend smarter than you are

The Russian education system is a very good education and respected above almost everything else. Chances are that your Russian girlfriend not only speaks German, Spanish, English and French, but also has a good understanding and grasp of a lot of things that you (slept) through at school.

- Women’s Day

Never forget the 8th of March and always buy her flowers on this date.

- A Russian girl is a princess

Russian girls are brought up in the tradition of old-fashioned chivalry and deference to the weaker sex. That means a man should open the door, carry the bags, mend things, make tea in the morning, escort her to the bus stop etc.

- She has a mother…

Some Russian mothers of that generation are convinced that foreigners are godless, feckless, untrustworthy imps sent by Satan to steal their daughters and carry them off to foreign countries. In other words, they are amazingly well informed. You have two choices; get your act together and behave like a decent human being or avoid the mother like the plague.

- Your food is not your own

It’s a well known fact amongst men that women mysteriously become ravenously hungry only when you happen to have a large plate of long-anticipated chips in front of you. However, the effect does seem to be particularly pronounced among Russian women, who claim to eat almost nothing. Always, and we mean always, order more than you can possibly eat because your stick-thin Russian girlfriend will inevitably develop the appetite of a blue whale the moment her anxiously selected (small salad) arrives.

- You can kiss other girls

Your Russian lady has female friends and it is perfectly acceptable, in fact encouraged, for you to kiss all of them up to once every time you see them. Exactly where you put your hands while you are doing this is a real issue.

- Walking is impossible

Part of the chivalry thing mentioned above is the expectation that whenever you are walking somewhere together she should have her arm looped through yours. Down narrow and crowded streets this makes progress is slow but sweet.

Comments from the web:

- I have seen American women in Wal-Mart in pajamas and bedroom slippers. A Russian girl would die before she went to the store in her pajamas!! And they love shoes with high heels!

- Russian girls love to read and know much about the rest of the world. My wife's mother considers George Washington one of history's great leaders. Enough said.
