A Beginner's Guide to Russian Dating: Part II

7. January 2010 by Christy 0 Comments

If you're new to or Russian dating in general, you likely want to know what works and what doesn't. Read on to learn a few basic techniques for success.


Slow Down

Many of our users want to find the Russian woman of their dreams as quickly as possible. This is perfectly understandable, but sometimes a gentleman’s eagerness can backfire. Resist the urge to rush things and try not to be too pushy. This is one of the most common mistakes new members make. Overeager advances and/or pushy suitors can overwhelm the ladies and drive them away. Dating, Russian or otherwise, is supposed to be fun so relax and enjoy the experience.


Create a Winning Profile

If you want to attract, and keep, the interest of a quality woman an interesting profile is a must. Not sure what to do? Post a clear and flattering photo and include descriptive and pertinent information in both the “About Me” and “Looking For” sections of your profile. Be truthful and appropriate at all times. Compelling, complete profiles attract far more attention on than profiles with little to no information and low-quality (or no) photos. 


Treat the Ladies With Politeness and Respect

To be successful on, a gentleman must be polite and respectful at all times. It may seem obvious, but many gentlemen violate this rule without even knowing it. Wondering what not to do? Don’t pressure her to move faster than she is comfortable, don’t insult her if she is not interested in your advances, don’t call her a scammer (unless you have absolute proof, in which case you contact our Customer Service team first), don’t request nude photos or write sexually explicit messages, and don’t behave as if she obligated to do whatever you ask just because you are paying to chat with her. Use common sense and treat the ladies how you would like to be treated. Politeness and respect go a long ways in winning a lady’s heart. 


To have a great experience on RussianLoveMatch, take it slow, be polite and respectful at all times, and make sure your profile stands out from the crowd. Want more tips? Don't forget to read this article's companion piece: "A Beginner's Guide to Russian Dating."
