Dating a russian american man
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.
There’ll also be the need to adapt to a different culture of intertwined families, as Russian family trees can be sprawling and spread across three or four generations.
Understanding Russian dating culture can do wonders for your love life.
Getting into a relationship with someone from another culture can be complex, as each culture places its own values on which qualities make someone a desirable partner.
Russian men – rightly or wrongly – may be taken aback by outwardly ‘unfeminine’ behaviour on a date, so swearing profusely and smoking is likely to be frowned upon.
Russian men can be intense and quite emotional in conversation, but don’t take this personally – it’s just in their nature.
