One of the reasons that so many gentlemen are taken with Russian ladies is that Russian culture is far more traditional. That extends to courtship, as well. Ladies in Russia and the Ukraine appreciate the traditional romantic gestures that courting gentlemen make. A few tips on how to treat a Russian bride right:
In the Former Soviet Union, chivalry is alive and well. When you walk down the street with her, offer your arm. Open the door for her when you exit a car. Hold the door when the two of you enter a building. If it is unexpectedly chilly, offer your jacket. If you and your date go shopping, offer to take her bags. These gestures will be highly appreciated.
Be attentive in your correspondence with your Russian lady. In your email exchanges, ask her about her day, her family and her life. Be sure to send birthday greetings and holiday greetings. (Our new birthday notifications make it easy for you to keep track of her special day.) Special occasion gifts (while certainly not a requirement!) are another wonderful way to perk up her day.
Be polite and caring. One of the best rules for getting along with people applies even more in international dating: always assume error before malice. You and the object of your affection are communicating over thousands of miles, with the added impediments of a language barrier and the difficulties inherent in text-based communication. Occasional misunderstandings are inevitable. When one occurs, always politely ask her to clarify. The Russian ladies who choose to use our site are seeking romance just as you are, and, they are more likely to find it with those who are patient and kind to them.
One of the best advantages of dating Russian ladies is getting to participate in a style of courtship that is falling out of fashion in many western countries. Russian ladies will be charmed and touched that you treat her with such care.
