Western men take lots of time, efforts and patience.

So do Western women. :chuckle:

this was a superb introduction to the mind of the Russian--dare I say Slavik woman?--for someone such as myself whose knowledge is scant.  Thanks guys.

Mendeleyev thank you for starting this Tr.
WOW... As the Italians coined the phraise "Mama Mia".

I just condensed 6 plus years into a few hours of reading.

Thank you all very much for inputting your knowledge, life, experience and belief here for the broken in pair of jeans (ol timers) and fresh from the store out of the bag (newbies).   :) MG

What a great OP and what a great thread!  Thanks to all who contributed.  I would really like to know what to expect and how to succeed when it comes to meeting the parents.  It is coming very soon!  Thanks in advance!

A true Russian woman wants only for a man who is honest, hard working and bold in his attentions....

DS,

I would have thought your life experience would have taught you that the breakup of the USSR left many 'Russians' in new states and they didn't stop feeling Russian.

SC was born of a Uzbheki dad and a Russian Mum in what is now Tajikistan.

She states she is Russian

You clearly have your obtuse hat on, today.



Example.. Manny has daughter born of a Russian Wife. She can be and IS Russian AND British.....

Can I watch when you inform Manny's wife that her daughter isn't Russian ?)))

)) personally speaking ...I don't care... my strapline is pretty clear.. but I think you'll find that your defining nationality..legally and emotionally.. is at variance with Russia and UK

Not many nations exclude claims for citizenship based one parent being a citizen of that nation.

Sure, Ukraine expressly forbids dual nationality...but we are talking Russia and UK...yes?

Read between the lines here... I think he refers to FSUW in general when he says Russian. His Mrs could be Kz but I'm not sure maybe she's Russian or maybe he's generalising the FSU.

Either way it's not worth twisting the knickers over!

My wife is Russian...her family moved to Kazakhstan from Siberia before she was born and spent a good part of her life under the USSR flag.

So if I go there and want to meet several women, then I should not let them know that? You can't just commit to a single woman upon meeting her for the first time... When they have those tourist group dates - don't they mingle and talk to different people?

In depends, really. An intelligent and "down-to-earth" woman will understand and accept that, after investing money in travel, you would like to meet a few women. However there are also women living in fantasy world, believing that a man shall come to meet them EXCLUSIVELY (and not even having a "plan B").

You can't just commit to a single woman upon meeting her for the first time...
That's absolutely true.

Leaving Russia is not an emigration, rather an evacuation.

Olga !

Whether  their intelligence was that good ( Red Banner Diplome's a plenty ) -  'debatable' - if they chose to meet / enter into a LTR with me...


BUT..


I believe you'll find this is very much down to the lady / chap's' preferences

V had SO many VM 'romeos' - her words -  offer to fly her from Moscow from Siberia to meet - 'sparing her' 3/4 days out of 2 weeks ...   :sick0012:


You can't just commit to a single woman upon meeting her for the first time...

That's absolutely true.

No, it's absolutely not 'true'.. it's your opinion / experience - based on your preferences ....

In this day and age, we can video chat and understand much about a potential mate - other than how they smell and whether you go 'boom' together ....    we were not 'commiting' ...just waiting to see if one's expectations live up to reality ?

I 'get' the expense thing, but *I* could not meet 3 plus ladies a day - remember what was important about them and make a rational decision on who to meet ... and then how to organise 2nd meetings ...   

To each their own - as you say, it depends ..

Moby, Miss Mouse and others

The Visit Many and Visit One debate comes up quite a bit. So I put together
a poll and a thread for debate here. Let me know if I missed something. 

http://ruadventures.com/forum/index.php?topic=27911.0

FSUW are not for entry level daters. FSUW don't do vague FSUW like a man of action so be a man of action  If you find a promising girl, get your butt on a plane. There are a hundred ways to be successful and a thousand ways to f#ck it up
Kiss the girl, don't ask her first.

Pete,

Welcome to the forum,

Yes, Mendy described the way most women from the FSU view courtship and
dating In My Opinion.

Jealous possessive women usually want a commitment from a man even before the first date. I always tell ladies I'm visiting them as a friend first but they also know from prior communications that I'm looking for someone marriage.

I would say the standards with Ukrainian women are pretty much the same, although Ukrainian women are less conservative, their culture is not so patriarchal. But it depends on the region. When I'm saying they are less conservative, I mean women living in the cities.
