Russian girls are quite different from your typical Western women. Many of the “dating tips” you may have learned simply do not apply — and might actually backfire on you — when it comes to Russian women.
Here are my top tips on dating Russian women:
✔️ Know what you’re looking for
Start with the end in mind. What kind of woman do you want to end up with? If you’re too vague, for example just saying “I want a beautiful Russian girl”, then you’re leaving too many things to chance and the odds of finding the perfect girl for you are slim.
Think about not only looks but education, life goals and ambitions, values, age, and personality. The more thought you put into what you want the more likely you are to find her. You might have begun to think you’d never find your perfect woman in your home country but with over 10 million single women in Russia the chances you can find exactly who you are looking for are very good.
✔️ Make sure she is genuine
It’s sad that we still hear of people falling for Russian scammers, sometimes paying thousands of dollars only to have the “girl” disappear forever. These days with agencies such as Elena’s Models who pre-screen and hand-approve all their girls profiles there is no need to take a chance on a fly-by-night operator or possible scammer.
Once you have exchanged a few emails with a girl and you feel there is a connection she should be willing to talk on the phone or Skype with you. If she makes excuses as to why she can’t take it as a red flag and be extremely cautious. Every house in Russia has a land line phone and most have Internet access or can get it cheaply at a friends house or local Internet cafe. If she likes you she will want to talk to you and make it happen no matter what!
✔️ Lead her and be a real man
Russian girls want to be lead. They are looking for a “real man” who knows what he wants and goes after it. You should be the one moving the relationship forward — asking questions about her, suggesting exchange of contact details, arranging online Skype calls, organising to meet in person etc.
No matter how much she likes you she will NOT take the lead. And if you don’t she will assume you don’t like her and go for someone who is more direct in their pursuit of her.
✔️ Move the relationship forward
You can only go so far in creating a relationship via email. Especially when some of the girls you may be interested are getting emails from guys just like you every day. Once you have found someone you like you should move quickly to phone or Skype conversations. Hearing the other person’s voice or seeing them on a webcam can build a relationship very quickly.
Once you have spoken a dozen times or so it may be a good time to arrange a personal meeting. Remember if you are not moving the relationship forward she may think you have lost interest, despite what you might be telling her with your words.
✔️ Be open minded
Russian ladies really are very different from the women you may be used to dating. It may take some time for you to “switch gears” and truly appreciate them… and to see how much they really appreciate a guy like you. They are typically intelligent and well educated, speak many languages (including English), like to look their best at all times, and care deeply about finding a husband and having a loving marriage.
Remember there are over 10 million more women than men in Russia which means there are a LOT of very beautiful girls who are available and looking for a man. You’ll very likely find the girl that seems too good to be true is very real and genuinely interested in you.
✔️ Take action
If you know what you want then the only question is how long are you willing to go without it?
Many men waste months or even years browsing sites, thinking about it, and dreaming of what their life could be like… and yet never take action to do anything about it. Waiting for the “perfect” time or always saying “tomorrow”. And they continue to live quiet lives of desperation — perhaps stuck in a loveless marriage or leading a single life where they simply don’t meet anyone interesting — when all it takes is to say “YES, this is what I want” and just go for it!
If not now, when? If not this, what?
