How to impress a Russian woman

1. Dress nicely  

“If you want to stand out and get noticed by Moscow girls, pay attention to your appearance. Trust me on this one. As my girlfriend says, “Russian women are sick and tired of seeing local Russian men in their old shirts, dirty pants and worn out jackets.” If you want a Russian girl to notice you, then here is your chance. Go to a store and pick out a nice pair of jeans, a few shirts to go with them and a jacket. You don’t necessarily have to go to high-end stores, pick some clothing that is good quality and works together as an outfit. That way, you will definitely stand out from the crowd and get noticed by girls in Russia”.  

2. Act confident 

“In order for a Russian woman to consider you as a potential boyfriend, you have to be confident. Russian women want to feel safe and secure and are seeking for a partner that is confident in himself. Start fighting your insecurities and improving your self-esteem. Self-worth is important when it comes to any kind of a relationship. You have to love yourself before anyone else can, whether it’s a Russian woman or any other woman.”

3. Be nice to her 

“Russian men can be rough and straightforward sometimes. By being different than them, you have a good chance at getting noticed. Be gentle with her, nice, and make sure she’s comfortable around you. Show her respect by opening a door for her or having her seated at a restaurant first. Don’t forget about compliments. If you think she looks beautiful today, tell her that. If she has a great sense of humor and you enjoy her company, let her know. It will make her day and she will see you as an honest man who is not afraid to communicate his thoughts.”

My dating Russian women tips

Here are my dating a Russian woman rules and what I have learned from being in a relationship with a Russian girl.”

4. Expect to pay on the date 

Here’s the difference between Russian women vs American women. While in some countries it is common to split the bill on the date, it is not the case with Russian women. If you are out on a date with a Russian woman, you are pretty much expected to pay. Whether it was a couple of drinks or a three-course meal, you have to get the bill. She might pretend to reach for her wallet, but don’t be fooled, she is expecting you to stop her and pay yourself.”

5. Bring her flowers 

All women love a cute bouquet of flowers and this especially applies to Russian women. In Russia, it is very common to give a girl a bouquet of flowers on a date. It doesn’t have to be a special occasion, you can do it anytime you would like to. Make sure you buy an uneven amount of flowers as bouquets that consist of even numbers is for funerals, so keep that in mind :D”.

6. Offer to help 

“Whether it comes to carrying her grocery bags or fixing a light bulb in her house, always offer to help. While your Russian girl may come off as strong independent women, deep inside she wants to be carried for. By offering your help, you are showing her that you care for her, even if she declines your offer, she will appreciate you asking.”    

7. Be patient 

“If you are a very punctual person and someone else being late is your biggest pet peeve, forget about that if you are dating a Russian lady. It is more than normal to be 15-20 minutes late for a date in Russian culture.There’s absolutely no point in trying to bring it up to her and convince her to show up on time. This conversation will start an argument and possibly a serious fight. Been there done that… Don’t show her that you are annoyed by the fact that she is late. Your job is to be on time and wait for her to show up with a smile on your face. Some things just can’t be changed :)”
