Tips for International Dating

14. December 2009 by Christy 0 Comments

Thanks to advances in modern technology, international dating has become a possibility for thousands of men and women across the globe. International matchmaking sites like make finding a mate from across the ocean easier than ever. However, dating someone from another country isn't without its challenges. If you're dating a lovely Russian woman, here are a few tips to help you battle the difficulties of an intercultural relationship.


Learn about her culture and country

If you’re dating a woman from another country (whether online or face-to-face) it’s important to learn about her country and culture. A genuine interest will show that you care about your significant other and will help you better understand her behavior, expectations, background, etc. At the same time, share information about your own country and culture. This will help the two of you truly get to know one another. 


Be aware of cultural differences

While it’s important to discuss one another’s country and culture, being aware of and sensitive to cultural differences is equally important. In the initial “getting to know you” phase of a relationship, try to stay away from potentially explosive topics like politics and religion. If a lady says something you don’t understand or does something that seems strange, ask her about it. Communication is key. This will help avoid misunderstandings and hurt feelings.


Understand travel/immigration restrictions

If things get serious, you may wish to bring a lady to your home country for a temporary or permanent stay. Those who are unfamiliar with international travel and immigration laws may think a move or a visit is just a matter of obtaining a passport and purchasing airfare. However, this is simply not the case. Immigration and travel laws are complicated and vary from country to country. Before taking any trips or planning any big moves, you and a lady should both research the laws of your home countries to prevent stressful travel complications. 


While international dating can be difficult at times, it's certainly not without its rewards. Many couples have found love across the globe and there's no reason to think you can't be next. If you're ready to meet the Russian woman of your dreams, visit and create a free profile today!
