WHAT RUSSIAN WOMAN EXPECT FROM THE FIRST DATE WITH YOU?

It is often said that a man trying to understand a woman is a waste of time because women don’t even understand women.  However, dating experts have done some interesting research and come out with interesting findings. It might be hard to find the accurate wants of Russian woman but there are some guesses that can be safely generalized.

So, you have a date with a beautiful Russian woman but have never gone out with one before. You are concerned about the cultural differences and want to make sure you do not do anything wrong and most importantly, do not want to offend her. It is common to have questions. Along with the cultural differences and concerning yourself with social etiquette you have those first date jitters to worry about. First and foremost, calm down, relax and concentrate on the date. Soon you will be across the table from a gorgeous woman! To make sure everything goes smoothly, follow the tips below.

 Dress to impress

 Russian women prefer a well-dressed man. When it comes to dressing for a first date, there is no overdoing it. If you have invited a Russian woman to a date, the next step should be to find the best clothes to wear. The expectation of the Russian woman to date may vary and dress to impress does not necessarily mean wearing expensive attire but dressing to suit the occasion. For example, if the first date is to take place in a restaurant, you have to dress in dinner attire and if it is on the beach, you have to dress in the best way that someone going to the beach would look. Also, pay attention to grooming. Get a clean shave, make sure your hair is neat and put on cologne.

Be the first to arrive

 Next rule you should keep in mind dating a Russian woman: always arrive first at your dates. The best variant is to come around 15 minutes in advance. Your lady, in her turn, has the undeniable right to come later than it was arranged. The first date is indeed a special occasion so your potential bride will likely spend hours to choose the most stunning outfit and do her hair and wear her makeup. Don’t panic if she doesn’t arrive strictly on time – be patient and wait for a while.

 Bring Flowers

 Don’t forget to bring flowers or a nice present for the first date with a Russian woman, so your gift will help in making a good impression on her. It is a simple, inexpensive gift that she will appreciate much more than any other women you may have dated in the past.


TIPS FOR A FIRST DATE

 Choose a Relaxed Date Setting

Choose a relaxed setting so that she warms up to you more quickly. Take things slowly and make her feel comfortable. Allow the conversation to flow and do not hesitate to tell a few tasteful jokes. Russian women adore a sense of humour. If there is a bit of a language barrier, be patient. Her English may not be perfect but a great conversation is still possible.

 

TIPS FOR A FIRST DATE

Be Chivalrous

Another important point, you must act as a gentleman. Don’t forget to open the door in front of her and let her in first. You should pull out the chair for her and stand up if she leaves the table. The big picture is to take care of her on the date. Everyone likes a nice man with good manners.

Be Assertive

On the date, especially the first, take the dominant role without coming off as overly assertive. Decide where the date will take place and then invite her. You want to show her that you are a self-assured man that can make the decisions. Russian men tend to be very assertive but you do not want to take this approach. The goal is to take the lead without coming across as controlling or bossy.

Be an open book

 The first date is the beginning of the time for people to know each other. Many relationships hit the rock no sooner than they have started because both parties started the relationship on a pretence. This is the time to voice your likes and dislikes – but also learn to hear your partner out and respect their opinion too.

Pay for Dinner

Russian women like gentlemen and gentlemen always pay for dinner on dates. The money topic is interesting always, but remember the simple truth: Russian men are sure to pay instead of their ladies. That is, if a lady came with a man (including her father or brother, and male friends), she does not pay for food, drinks, and so on (typically). The fact is that without paying for your woman on a date, you run the risk of being branded a greedy person – this is a very important cultural difference, which you must consider closely.

An inappropriate question

 You must also be careful with the questions that you ask on your first date. Starting your conversation with asking her to marry you is not one of the good first date ideas, as it may easily scare her off.  She would think that you’re too fast in making decisions because you don’t know each other that well.

Don’t let her go home alone

Be a gentleman until the end! Especially if your date takes place in the evening and your lady has to return to her home late at night. Dark streets of a big city aren’t the safest place for a Russian lady, so make sure she will return home safe, accompany her or arrange a taxi for her.

The tips above will greatly increase your chance of having a successful first date with a Russian woman. The important thing is to treat her well and with respect. The first date is all about becoming more acquainted and seeing if there is potential for a relationship. Just because she is Russian doesn’t mean that she is drastically different from other women you have dated in the past. Enter the date with a positive attitude, show off your great personality and have fun.
