7 reasons why you should never meet a Russian woman!

1. Russian women are far too beautiful for you.

The devotion with which Russian women pay attention to beauty can often seem uncanny. For most of them, life is like a podium, and so they have to look adorable even in everyday mundane situations, be it just leaving the house to go for a quick walk with the dog or to get a newspaper at the kiosk next door.

My friend Sasha, for example, wears high heels every day and doesn't worry about comfort because she just looks amazing every day.

In 5 years, she never showed up to school in the same outfit. When I asked her why she cares so much about her appearance, she seemed surprised and promptly replied, "Why wouldn't I want to be beautiful?". Beauty gives strength and gives respect. How will anyone hereafter perceive my impressive inner being if I can't attract attention to begin with? "

The worst thing is that you should also dress up when you go out with a Russian woman, otherwise you run the risk of being looked at askance from the side by people who ask themselves where this beautiful girl has picked up this pathetic-looking guy.


2. faithfulness and devotion is overrated.

A real Russian woman will always be your devoted friend, your best advisor, as well as your critic and even your doctor if you ever get sick. Women in Russia are caring and tender, and whatever happens, they will always be by your side, for better or for worse. A good example of the faithfulness of Russian women: In the 19th century there was an uprising against the Tsar, and the aristocrats involved in the uprising were sentenced to a lifetime of exile and hard labour in Siberia. Their wives voluntarily followed them to cold, desolate lands and shared the punishment with their husbands.

A Russian woman sincerely and firmly believes that her partner is the best person in the world, the most talented, the strongest, the smartest. She herself knows her own values and so she believes that a queen always deserves a king and must respect him like one - she burns with care, love and support for her partner.

So if you think that loyalty and devotion is unnecessary and boring, you should avoid meeting Russian women. 


3. you could get Russian in-laws.

This is dangerous. The visit to your Russian friend's parents' house will usually be accompanied by feasts (soups, meat, meat soups, salads that are 50% mayo, potatoes, potatoes, bliny with minced meat and more potatoes and then a cake for dessert). And since it is rude to finish the meal before everyone else, you will have to cope with this amount of food.

You expect help from your beloved, but when it comes to hospitality, all Russians tend to get unreasonable and overfeed their guests until they are hard to move from the table. She will probably offer you another piece of cake. You certainly won't be able to lose weight quickly with a Russian girlfriend. 

And on top of all this, there are tests from the supposed father-in-law:

Your girlfriend's father will most likely want to test you at some point. You will then have to prove that the family can trust you with their child. Tests are different in every family. For example, my friend Jacques had to drink a full bottle of vodka with his father-in-law's father. Otherwise he would be too weak to protect the daughter in danger. Fortunately for all of us, Jacques had passed the test, but we had to celebrate his success with more cake.


4. Russian women are too independent.

The 19th century Russian poet Nekrasov said, "A Russian woman can stop a galloping horse and enter a burning house." This is the powerful image of an independent woman who does not really need help or protection from men. Girls in Russia do not believe in ideal relationships and believe that even if their Prince Charming finds them, they must be able to survive on their own. Building a career and getting a second university degree often sounds more appealing and realistic than trying to find someone who will value her personality and freedom.

A Russian woman will be very independent in a relationship and also very stubborn. On the other hand, you can expect courage in dangerous and stressful situations and the strength that will help you both to overcome even the most difficult times together.


5. Her high expectations.

Russian women are very demanding. They don't just want a man who loves them madly. They want the best man to love them madly. Good old manners are very important: you are expected to open doors for her, hand her coats and bring flowers when you go out with her. So if you're not a gentleman, it's better to leave it alone.

Russian women don't only pay attention to what you do for them. Don't forget the people around them either - be a brave knight! Offer your seat on the bus to elderly people and save a kitten from stray dogs. Once I saw a man jump into the sewage to save little ducklings that fell through a hatch - he was a true hero in the eyes of his girlfriend. 


6. the challenge of breaking the ice.

Russians are generally rather reserved and try to keep their distance before you slowly approach. Any Russian girl can create an impression of a snow queen, even if she actually likes you (especially if she particularly cares about you!). I met Paul on one of my trips at work, and he told me he had come to Moscow to visit his girlfriend. "When we started dating, I was challenged with the ice wall between us, as if it didn't want to open or melt. Slowly, step by step, I realised that under that ice was the most loving and caring person in the world. "


7. All that Russian food.

For many Russian women, cooking is a way to show their love. So prepare yourself for experimental dishes. At first, the cuisine may seem absolutely normal and even a bit boring. However, as you start eating Russian food more often than occasional visits to your parents, more and more questions will arise. 

What is that strange purple salad? Beetroot with herring? Pancakes with caviar? Why does she put cabbage in pies (and everywhere else)?

Fermented rye bread drink... well, that's surprisingly decent!

They may hate most meals, but occasionally there is something great to enjoy!
