There's No Such Thing as a Typical Russian Woman

31. January 2012 by Christy 0 Comments

If you've been researching Russian dating, you've likely read a lot about "the typical Russian woman." However, there's no such thing.


There are thousands of women on Russian Love Match, each with different wants, needs, likes, dislikes, and preferences. Therefore, it’s impossible to say Russian woman are A, B, and C, without resorting to sweeping generalizations. The problem with Russian dating, and dating in general, is that singles try to categorize members of the opposite sex in order to better understand them. However, this technique often backfires, especially on Russian dating websites.


Whether they realize it or not, many men buy into the positive stereotypes about Russian women, specifically that Russian women are thin and beautiful, shrink away from feminism, don’t care about a man’s looks or income, and want nothing more than to be a traditional housewife. While women like this do exist, they are certainly not representative of all Russian women, and men who expect the ladies of RLM to fit this “Russian woman template” are often dismayed and disappointed. There are thousands of women on our site and many bear no resemblance to the stereotypical Russian woman.


If you truly want to meet and marry a lady from the Former Soviet Union you’ll need to approach each woman as an individual, not a stereotype or a template. Nobody’s perfect, even Russian women, and each of the ladies of RLM are looking for a man who’s willing to accept them as they are.
