While this might partly be down to the old stereotypes simply not filtering through to the reality of the 21st century, it’s also been suggested that politics is a contributing factor.With Russia currently having increased tensions with the west, marrying a fellow countryman can seem the safer option for some nationals, according to one survey.
On a date, Russian men are expected to be highly courteous, holding doors and helping with coats - and they’ll usually want to reach for the bill at the end of the meal, too.
If you prefer to be fairly stand-offish and distant in relationships, dating in Russia might not be the best option for you.
This is because Russian relationship culture is certainly more collective than in some other countries, and couples tend to act as partners in most pursuits.
When you first move to Russia, you might be under the impression that being from a far-off land will increase your chances of dating success, but there’s actually been suggestions that the opposite is the case in the modern day.
Sorry to burst any bubbles, but while there might be an old-fashioned impression that Russian women love Western men, it’s not actually really borne out in reality.
Indeed, fewer than one in five marriages in Russia’s capital, Moscow, are consummated between people from different countries.
Those men who have communicated with Russian girls, dated or even married one, can easily prove the contrary.
Yes, these girls may seem unapproachable at first sight but once you get to know them better, you'll realize that they are friendly, open-minded, and undeniably charming.
If you've never met Russian women personally and know only general facts about them, then your idea about these ladies must be pretty vague.
Some men think that they are cold and severe just like the weather in the northern regions of Russia.
As in other countries, it’s most common to meet people through your social or work network, or in public places such as bars and coffee shops.
