Many gentlemen have great expectations when it comes to their first meeting with a Russian woman. They imagine a special lady leaping into their arms upon touching down in Ukraine, a long, passionate kiss, and perhaps even an invitation back to the lady's apartment. However, this not a likely scenario.
A first visit is the chance for a couple to get to know one another face-to-face, to determine if chemistry exists, and to evaluate the future of a relationship. It is not a time for guaranteed intimacy. At times, couples may find that there are no sparks in person, while on other occasions one party may feel an attraction and the other may not. Even if a lady does like what she sees, she may feel uncomfortable expressing passion for a man she just met.
The courtship doesn’t stop once a gentleman arrives in Russia or the Ukraine. A man must still make an effort to be charming and polite if he wants to impress a lady, just as a lady must be charming and polite in return. Problems arise when suitors mistakenly believe that all wooing is done online and that visits are reserved for physical intimacy. Though some may believe that a visit entitles a man to a lady’s passion and affection, suitors with this expectation are often disappointed.
While both Russian women and Western men would obviously prefer a blissful, romantic visit when meeting a potential match for the first time, nothing is guaranteed. Not marriage, not sex, not even a simple kiss. Please keep this in mind when planning your trip.
