Dating Russian women isn’t that different from dating Western women. You can expect the same level of culture and good conversation if the woman speaks English. Of course, if the woman doesn’t speak English, you will have a hard time about you. In this case, you should try to plan dates that are more action-packed rather than sit-down, such as going shopping rather than out to dinner. While dating Russian women, you should consider that feminism didn’t hit Russia in the same ways that it did in the west. The girls in Russia still expect a man to pay for all aspects of dates. They also expect a degree of chivalry and you should always open doors for the women and take their jackets when entering a room. Showing respect is the most important thing when dating Russian women and you should act like a refined gentleman. Going out in Russia is in some ways like a theatre show because everyone wants to be seen and look at everyone else. Act like everyone is watching you and do not embarrass your Russian date.
