How to date a Russian girl?
Where do you start? The first question to answer is how to find a Russian girlfriend? Let’s get some practical tips from start to end.
- Finding a date in Russia
First place to go is online. There are hundreds of various dating sites, where you can meet Russian girls. However, not all of such sites are safe. There have been many cases when people would date “fake” brides from Russia.
In some situations there were men behind those dating profiles with fancy female pictures. They would make you interested and then entice you into distant relationships. Finally they got lots of money out of foreign men and just disappeared.
Thus, you need to find a reputable dating site, where they check up all the profiles of girls and do all they can to avoid fraud.
- Create a profile
Take some time to fill out all the information about you. Get a nice photo, but make sure it is still relevant. Do not post outdated one. After all, you do not wish a lady to do the same thing with her profile. So be genuine and honest.
The good thing is many younger Russian ladies are willing to date and marry guys who are some 10+ years older. This is a part of Russian culture, where women have no problem marrying older men. So, if a 25 year old is willing to date a 40 year old guy, it is not a scam.
Once you locate such a site, find several portfolios of the ladies you like and contact them. You do not need to get focused on just one date at this point of time. You do not know how it will turn out, so pick several ladies and write them all. Make a since first letter. Do not make it too long and use simple language to write it.
Do not forget you have a language barrier to deal with. Even if the lady states she knows English, she may not know it too well. So, keep it short and simple. No jokes, no idioms or sayings she may have hard time translating.
- Overcoming language barrier
This tip is essential for success in dating women from Russia or any other foreign country. Good dating sites offer translation services or chats. If not, you may have to find and hire a translator for your letters or chats. You can find such a person online on various freelance sites.
Some ladies may ask you to pay for their English lessons. It is not a good idea, because at this time you have no clue of how long your relations going to last. Better get a good interpreter and pay for your communications.
- Get on Skype
Two or three letters is enough to ask to meet with the other person on Skype. If she is not willing to do that you might be dealing with a scammer. These days most people in Russia have PCs, phones, etc. They have good internet connection, so there should be no problem doing video conversations with her. Even if she does not know English, you may still want to get on Skype. You can use Google translate to try and communicate with her. You need to check and see, if the woman is real.
- What to talk about
So, how to meet Russian women? Handle the situation as you would with ladies from any other place. Think through your future conversation. Be polite and nice. Compliment the lady, but avoid sex talks. She is still a stranger now. Ask her about her family, education, job, etc.
- Moving forward
Once you spend several chats on Skype and write back and forth to each other, you may take it a bit further. If you really like the lady, you may offer her to date you. You see, you start writing to several people at once. She might be doing the same thing. She may have several guys she chats with.
If you two take strongly to each other, why not start playing solo? Offer her to date you exclusively. This means you should be making some sorts of plans for the future. You may plan a trip to Russia to come and actually meet in person. Otherwise, she may not agree to do that.
Distant dating should not mean your lady is not getting any presents or flowers. Check out if your dating site offers such services. They may send some flowers or a gift over to her and you pay for it. If not, many larger cities in Russia have such services for foreigners. You may contact them and get some flowers over. Or just use snail mail and send her a box of goodies.
Your gifts do not have to be expensive, but Russian ladies do love fancy things. So, do not send over just souvenirs. Send something more practical. And do not forget to put in some presents for her family. If she has a child, send something for him or her. Also include the gifts for her mother, father or siblings.
- Money issue
Avoid sending any money before you actually come over and meet in person. If she writes or talks too much about financial issues, problems and troubles, she might be a scammer. So, limit things to gifts or gift certificates, if you are not sure what to send over.
- Coming over
Do not wait too long to come over. She is out there looking for a husband, not a distant lover. So, if you two are serious about it, plan your trip over to Russia in 2+ months after starting serious relations with her.
So, how to marry a Russian woman? Just follow these ten simple steps and go for it.
