7 reasons why a foreigner should not meet with a Russian girl
Russian girl Marina Vinogradova, worked as a guide and telling tourists about Russia, wrote for the site MatadorNetwork column in English, addressed to foreigners, why you never want to meet with Russian girls. And here's the thing:
They are too beautiful
For the majority of Russian girls life - a podium, so they always have to look at the five-Possible, even if left to pick up the newspaper from the mailbox or take a walk with the dog. My friend Sasha wearing high heels every day and absolutely no worries that it's uncomfortable. The main thing - it is beautiful!
In the five years of study, she never appeared in the classroom in the same clothes twice. When I asked why she paid so much attention to their appearance, Sasha replied: "Why should not I look good? Beauty - is the power and respect. No one at first glance does not appreciate your rich inner world. "
The fact that Russian girls always look good, upon closer inspection, it seems intimidating. After all, if you're going to go somewhere with her, you have a lot of effort to look decent on its background. Otherwise, everyone will stare at you and wonder: what makes this cutie next to that bogey?
Devotion - it's not always good to
Russian girl will be for you the most devoted friend, best adviser, a competent critic, and even personal physician if you become ill. Women in Russia caring and gentle, they are always ready to substitute your shoulder and together go through any adversity. The best example of loyalty to Russian women - the wives of the Decembrists. In the XIX century in Russian nobles revolted against the king. For this they were sent to lifelong exile in Siberia. Their wives voluntarily went to them and shared all the hardships of life in the cold desert lands. Russian woman believes that her partner - the best man in the world: the most talented, the most powerful, the most intelligent. She truly thinks so because the values themselves is quite high. And if she feels like a queen, the pair currently could only choose a king and treat him accordingly would like to royal personages - with respect, care, love and support. But if you think loyalty is too boring, it is better not to meet with Russian girls.
You will have a Russian mother-in-law
Russian in-law and mother-in-law - it is very dangerous. First of all for your health. Because at home parents will always be your girl covered with a table full of strange food: soups, meats, soups, meat, salads, half consisting of mayonnaise, potatoes and more potatoes, pancakes with meat and cake for dessert.
Do not finish the meal - rude, so you have to eat it all. No, really, EVERYTHING! And if you wait for help from your favorite, do not expect: the guests at the Russian decided to feed to satiety. Therefore, it is likely instead to save you from this folly, will offer a second piece of cake.
And do not forget about the initiation: Dad your girl most likely will have to experience a variety of ways to make sure that you are worthy to meet with his precious daughter. For example, my friend Jacques had to drink with his father of the girl a full bottle of vodka, or else it would have been considered a weakling. Fortunately, he passed the test, and we had to celebrate another cake.
They are too independent of
Russian poet of the XIX century, Nikolai Nekrasov once wrote: "Russian woman horse at full gallop stop, enter a burning house." This powerful image of an independent woman who does not really want from men neither aid nor protection, though in many ways. Girls in Russia do not believe in the ideal relationship and think that even if found her prince, should be able to provide for themselves. Career and getting a second higher education for many of them much more attractive to the search, who will appreciate your individuality and freedom. Russian women are independent and very stubborn. Even, perhaps, too. On the other hand, her fighting spirit will help both of you to overcome difficult times.
Her high expectations
Russian women are very demanding. They do not just want a guy who will love them to distraction. They want the best man in the world, which at the same time loves them to distraction. She expects you to behave like a gentleman: to open the door for her, to help put on a coat, give flowers on a date. So, if you're not from this type of men you should not even attempt to build a relationship with the Russian.
And always be in her eyes, a knight without fear and reproach: give in place in transport for older people, save a kitten from stray dogs. One day I met a man who jumped into the sewage system, to pull fallen into the hatch tiny ducklings. In the eyes of the girl, he was a real hero.
You will have to break the ice in relations
Russians are used to keep a distance, before to get close to someone from new acquaintances. Russian girl will seem Snow Queen, even if head over heels in love with you (especially if you head over heels in love!).
My colleague Paul, who meets a girl from Moscow, once said: "When we started dating, between us there was a wall of ice. It seemed she did not want to open up to me, or at least allow to approach closer. But slowly, step by step, I was able to break the ice and found that hides the most loving and caring person in the world for him. "
For many Russian women delicious dinner - this is a way to show their love, so be ready for its culinary experiments. First Russian food may seem perfectly normal and even a little boring. But if you start to eat Russian food all the time, not just during visits to her parents, then you will appear more and more questions.
What is this strange purple salad? Beet and herring? Pancakes with caviar? Why she puts cabbage in all the dishes? How many kinds of pickles, there on the ground? What kind of rye bread drink? You can hate most of the dishes, but surely find yourself something really tasty. For example, a friend of mine loves salad. According to him, this is because there is no cabbage.
