Well, today we are here to break that stereotype and give you the complete guide on how and where to conquer Russian women.
Welcome to my international dating series on Russian women.
My 15+ years working and traveling abroad experience allowed me to date dozens of Russian women, and now, I want to gather my experience for you guys and simplify dating things with some awesome tips.
Stay tuned to see how these pale beauties hold up on 11 important traits when compared to other well-known stunners such as Colombian, Brazilian, and Ukrainian women.
So, if you are a lover of these pale, blue-eyed blondes, with never-ending legs, I prepared tons of images to justify that stereotype!
Stick with me to find out whether the stories about Russian women are true, and learn how to infiltrate (you know where, and I know how).
The 12 Most Important Traits of Russian Women
So, what are Russian women like and why are Russian women so beautiful and desirable?
It’s not just one or a few characteristics, to be fair. It’s the full package of both physical and personal characteristics that makes them so popular amongst online dating community.
What Physical Traits Distinguish Russian Women from Other Women
1. Physical appearance
It’s true. Everything is true. They are gorgeous!
When it comes to one of the most common physical features, the height, we can say that Russian women have almost perfect height.
The average Russian girl is 67 inches (170 cm) tall, which is about a bit above average height of other countries. Add at least 4-5 inch heels on top of it and boom!
What makes height so important is the fact that it really helps with highlighting the rest of the woman’s body, such as legs, back, chest and torso itself.
And Russian girls are not just known for being rich cleavage, but they damn are (at least what I saw).
That said, certain traits feel and look much better on women that are 67 inches (165-170 cm) tall, than on taller women, which makes height very important.
I mean, it depends on your taste. But if you are searching for Russian girls knowing all those stereotypes, you are probably into height as well.
And guys, trust me, there’s nothing better than those long legs at the right angle (90 degrees preferably, if you know what I mean). So, put those legs at the right angle. To do that, stick with me for the ultimate tips!
One of the most characteristic physical traits of Russian women is that they are very healthy and rarely get cold.
If you’ve ever been to Russia, you probably noticed that girls like to stay fit, which is because they have a very healthy lifestyle.
They enjoy training, fitness, and jogging, as well as some other sports activities. Apart from just being healthier, it makes Russian girls even prettier because everyone likes hot fit girls.
Also, if you have a woman next to you who likes to keep herself in great shape, that will make you want to do the same, which would benefit your health and figure as well.
Therefore, you won’t have to worry about all Russian girls being like Babushka, which is completely wrong thinking nowadays.
3. How stylish are they?
When it comes to wrong stereotypes, the one that claims how Russian women wear too opened clothes is a bit wrong.
We say a bit because they do like wearing clothes that are mostly considered as “party clothes” in western countries.
However, that doesn’t mean Russian girls don’t have style. On the contrary, they have more style than their western counterparts.
Russian women are very fashionable. They like really elegant and flashy clothes that would put them in the center of attention, which is an excellent way for them to show how beautiful and energetic they are.
So, if you are a real gentleman and want a real lady next to you, then finding a Russian woman is the right choice.
4. Facial beauty
Probably the most noticeable physical trait of Russian girls is that they are extremely beautiful and easily recognizable because of that.
Whenever you see a girl with pale skin and beautiful blue eyes, you have to ask her if perhaps she is Russian.
And there’s where the fantasy begins.
Those are two of the most noticeable characteristics of Russian women, which, combined with their excellent watch-glass figure and very interesting personality, make them very beautiful and desirable.
So, if you like pale-skinned girls with simply gorgeous blue eyes who also tend to look for their figures, then you will definitely enjoy dating a Russian woman. Even for a night, or two!
Additional Rating – The Tinder 1000 Swipe Rating
On top of the four physical trait ratings for Russian women, we have also created our own additional rating from the Russian girls we see on Tinder. We call it the 1,000 Tinder swipe rating. It is extremely accurate and gives a very good overall picture of the single women and how attractive they are.
This is how it works.
We swiped through 1000 different profiles in all of the major cities of Russia and took note of how many beautiful women there are. We jotted down how many 8’s, 9’s and 10’s there are based on their profile pictures. Here is a quick breakdown.
- 0-100 is poor
- 100-200 is OK
- 200-300 is Good
- 300 – 400 Is Incredible
- 400 + is Mindblowing (There are only a few of these)
With a Tinder Plus subscription, you can teleport to anywhere in the world and swipe for yourself. Find out more below In the section about how to meet Russian women. Also, make sure to check out my other country guides to see how their Tinder scores compare.
What Different Personality Traits Russian Women Have from Other Women
1. Do They Enjoy Going Out and Having Fun?
If you like going out and partying all night, then a Russian woman is the perfect girlfriend for you because Russian girls like to party a lot!
Whether you enjoy relaxing massages, intense parties or simply to chill in a bar, you will be able to do all of this with your Russian date.
They are very dynamic and like to enjoy life to its full extent. That means you will have no problem in going to sports games, like basketball, football or any other sport, and bring your Russian date with you, without having to worry whether she will like it or not.
Russian girls simply know how to make every situation interesting, whether they are in clubs or sports stadiums.
2. Chill Factor
Russia is the largest country in the world – you would expect that there are enough partners for everyone in Russia.
However, the truth is a bit different. There are actually more females than males in Russia, which means that not every Russian girl can find a mate.
That is what kind of makes us non-Russians who like Russian girls lucky since it means we can meet them easier.
Because of the sex ratio in Russia is in favor of men, Russian women vs American women, for example, are often very “aggressive” when it comes to dating someone.
Since the female competition is greater, they have to be that way, in order to protect their men. It can often result in them being very passionate and direct, without wasting too much time playing love games.
That is something which some men like and some not, but it does make dating a bit easier, since you don’t have to play around too much, in order to win a girl.
3. Are They Loyal
There is one stereotype about Russian women that is 100% true, which is their loyalty towards people they love.
In contrast with this, there are also people who claim how Russian girls tend to cheat and are not loyal at all.
However, that is mostly the case with guys that do not have a real love of Russian girls. When they really love someone, they are loyal to death, so you won’t have to worry about being betrayed or cheated on.
4. Good as Mothers
If you are looking for a woman with who you want to start a family, then selecting a pretty Russian woman is a perfect choice.
They are known to be very good as mothers because they usually like children and they are also quite responsible when it comes to raising them.
5. Meeting and Talking to New People
One of the most distinctive personality traits of Russian women is that they are very communicative and easy to talk to.
You will enjoy having a conversation with them since you will find that they are very intelligent and have a lot to talk about, so you will most likely find common topics.
Most western women tend to keep their guard up when they meet new people, which makes it a bit awkward to talk to them, thus making the entire conversation either dull or not really interesting.
That is definitely not the case with Russian girls. They are very social and relaxed, so you won’t have to worry about them acting like they own the world or something like that.
Also, they are quite understanding and like to show their emotions, so if you have some problem, you will find comfort in a nice conversation with a girl from Russia.
6. Are They Romantic
Even though I’ve said Russian women are pretty aggressive when it comes to dating and keeping their mate, do not think that they are not romantic at all.
In fact, Russian girls are huge romantics and they easily fall for romantic gestures, such as getting some flowers, chocolate or even kissing in the rain.
Apart from that, they really like having a strong man, a gentleman, beside them, who would move the world and stars for them if it were possible.
Therefore, if you are a kind of guy who likes holding doors, keeping women warm with your jacket or even simply holding hands to keep them warm, then make sure to show that romantic side of yourself when you date a Russian girl.
There is a stereotype that hot Russian girls are not so easy to get.
I say it’s kinda true. But if I have to give a straight answer, I’ll have to include the geographical factor. Most of the girls are traditional (read: not easy to get).
It all depends on the geographical factor. Some rural places are, naturally, more traditional, hence, girls are more traditional.
Other places, like Moscow, Saint Petersburg, or Ekaterinburg are, to put, modern. Girls over there live their lives to the fullest (in general).
So, to conclude: read the city guides above, if you haven’t. You’ll find a lot of useful info where to go out and meet these not so traditional Russian women.
Like every other woman from all around the world, girls from Russian are attracted to several things.
We’ll discuss those things further (how to conquer a Russian girl’s heart), and just by following these tips, you’ll get in those pants in no time!
8. Gringo Card
As stated above, Russian women are very communicative and they like to party and meet new people. Besides that, there are more females than males in Russia, so in order to find their desired partners, Russian girls tend to like to date foreigners.
They are not stiffed and nervous when making new foreign acquaintances, which makes it easier to talk to them.
Also, there are a lot of Russian girls who live in foreign countries, whether because they are immigrants or exchange students.
So, wherever in the world you are, you will probably be able to find some Russian girls that you might like, which will be the next thing I will talk about.
What a blast!
Russian women score really high in all the categories; it is no surprise since they are known to be some of the sexiest women out there.
The next sections will reveal where you can find and meet these beautiful women, the pros and cons, and tons of incredibly beautiful Russian women.
Where to Meet Russian Women
Now that we’ve seen what are the most noticeable physical and personal traits of Russian women, let’s see how and where you can meet your perfect Russian girl.
1. Russian Cupid
Cupid Media is a very famous group that delivers some of the best online dating experience in multiple countries throughout the world, including Russia.
Russian version of the media is called Russian Cupid, where you can meet beautiful Russian girls from all over the world.
The website itself is free, allowing you to create and setup your own profile. You can use different sets of search options, allowing you to choose different filters, such as religion, languages, possibility to move, physical appearance, etc.

Apart from that, there are some additional premium membership options, each adding some additional features, such as chatting, removing ads and your profile being shown higher than others.
All of this can help to improve your overall dating experience on the website, so think carefully about how serious you are about online dating Russian women.
Traveler’s Guide for Meeting Russian Women
Those were the best online dating websites where you can meet pretty Russian women. Now, let’s focus on giving you some tips about how to meet girls in some major cities in Russia if you decide to travel there.
As the capital and the largest city in Russia, it is obvious that I’ll start this tour with Moscow.
First of all, since Moscow is huge, you will easily find the right accommodation, which is not too expensive, if you decide to travel there.
When it comes to finding a girl in Moscow, it is pretty easy to do so, since the city is enormous and there are over 12 million people living there.
One of the most commonly known characteristics of Moscow is that it is a town that is always awake, even during nights.
The nightlife in Moscow is pretty strong. There are a lot of nightclubs, which you can check out and where you can meet some beautiful Russian women.
The most known clubs are Krysha, Night Flight, Mira, and Propaganda, but apart from them, there are a lot of other clubs that you can visit during the night.
What makes it easier is the fact that Moscow girls like to party a lot, so wherever you go, you will be able to find your Russian date anytime.
If you are not a party maniac, however, you can still be successful in finding love in Moscow because there are a lot of restaurants and cafes, as well as different museums, where you will find beautiful and smart Russian girls.
The most common such places are Moscow’s Diamond Fund and Victory Museum.
Another popular location, where there is a lot of pretty female population is a surprise, surprise, shopping mall.
There are a lot of shopping malls in Moscow, and each of them is filled with beautiful girls because Russian women like to dress nicely and stylishly.
2. Saint Petersburg
Next on our list is, of course, the 2nd largest city in Russia, which is Saint Petersburg.
Same as in Moscow, there are a lot of places to meet beautiful Russian chicks in St. Petersburg both during the day and night.
There are a lot of nightclubs in the city, ranging from modern clubs with elite clientele to some smaller bars and taverns, where everyone is having a great time.
The main locations to meet pretty Russian girls if you are single are definitely Nevsky Prospect, Rubenshteyna, and Dumskaya, but there are more.
For example, some of the most famous places are Lomonosov, Stackenschneider, Rossi Club, Money Honey, Fidel, Mishka, Gastro Pub Ivan & Maria, and Poison Bar.
Apart from these, there are also more places to go out, all filled with a large number of Russian beauties that simply can’t wait to hook up with foreigners.
Again, if nightlife is not your thing, there are different locations that you can visit during the day, where you can also meet a lot of Russian beauties.
Along with a lot of cafes and restaurants, there are also several malls that you can visit, such as NevskyTsentr, Galeria, Mega Mall, GostinyDvor, and Stockman.
Also, the city itself is very nice, with different museums, such as the Hermitage Museum, Winter Palace, Kazan Cathedral and Church of the Savior, and beautiful architecture, so you can try meeting some girls on the streets or in nearby cafes and bars that work during the day.
Apart from that, near Tyrone Square, there are a lot of girls who attend nearby Uni, so you can always try your luck with them.
Make sure to check out famous parks as well, such as Catherine Park, Field of Mars, New Holland and Tauride Garden.
Ekaterinburg also has a pretty decent nightlife, just like previous two cities, so let’s start with that, shall we?
There are a lot of nightclubs and bars, where you can find your perfect Russian date and who knows, you might even like them enough to get into a relationship.
The best area to start with if you are a single man who is looking for a Russian date is LeninaProspekt, more precise, near Ul. Malysheva.
So, if you want to have success in hooking up with some nice Russian girls, make sure to plan ahead and find a room or apartment close to this location.
Some of the best bars and nightclubs are places like Ben Hall, Volley, Svoboda, Med, Alibi, Kraby, and The Optimist.
Apart from all these, there are a lot of other clubs, taverns, bars, and pubs, so you don’t have to be discouraged if you don’t succeed in one or two since you can simply go to another bar and you will find some nice Russian girl for yourself.
When it comes to visiting some daytime locations where you can pick up some hot Russian women, make sure to check Rastorguyev-Kharitonov Palace, Victory Park, Yekaterinburg War Memorial and Church Upon the Blood.
Apart from that, there are a lot of cafes and different types of restaurants for you to check out with your Russian date, as well as some beautiful locations to take a walk and enjoy conversation with her.
Russian Women Pros and Cons
Experience True Love
When Russian girls really love someone, they will show you that with all their heart, by being ready to do almost everything to make you feel better when you are sad. Also, they are very romantic and passionate and they do not feel afraid to show it.
Russian Women Are Both Good Girlfriends and Friends
Apart from being great lovers, Russian women can also become your best friend.
They are excellent listeners and they always try to cheer you up and help you with some of your problems because words “family” and “friend” mean something to them.
You Will Have a Lot of Fun
As stated above, Russian girls know how to party, so you will always have a lot of fun while dating them.
Whether you like going to parties, playing drinking games or simply enjoying romantic evenings, you will be able to find all of it if you decide to date a Russian girl.
They are also very funny and tend to joke a lot, which is a very important trait every human should have.
Women from Russia are Trustworthy
When they love their partners, Russian women are probably the most loyal women in the world.
They can be completely devoted to you and maintaining and cherishing your love and relationship.
The stereotype that all Russian women are cheaters is completely wrong since statistics say that it’s men who cheat more in Russia.
You know what old people use to say: “Happy belly, happy marriage”.
Russian females are known to be good cooks, so if you like good food, you will definitely enjoy being in a relationship with a Russian girl. Also, they tend to look after their health and shape, so you will definitely eat healthy food.
Russian Women are Good at Housekeeping
Apart from cooking and being excellent drinking buddy, Russian girls are also excellent at housekeeping when they want to do it.
So, just don’t order them around to do it and show them that they are not just housekeepers and they will gladly do it, without complaining.
Girls from Russia Are Very Smart
It’s a common knowledge that Russian basic education is one of the best in the world, being a successor of a Soviet education type. So, it’s no wonder that Russian girls are very smart and they have knowledge about a lot of topics.
Therefore, you will never feel bored of talking to Russian women, since you will definitely find at least one topic you both have in common.
They Are Modest
Although Russian girls like to party and enjoy life, they are very modest, even though you might think they only like classy clothes and expensive stuff. In fact, they stand strong on the ground and will avoid getting you in embarrassing situations.
However, they also won’t comment much if you do something wrong, which can often be a bad thing.
Language Barrier Can Be Advantage During Fights
Do you know that annoying feeling when a girl is yelling at you for something, while you sit there, not even knowing what you did wrong?
Well, if you get in fight with Russian girls, they often get so nervous that they start yelling in Russian, so you can simply stand there and tell how you don’t understand a damn word they’re saying.
Language Barrier Can Also Be Disadvantage Overall
However, this language barrier can sometimes be very annoying. Most Russian girls from major cities, such as Moscow or Saint Petersburg usually speak English very well, so you won’t have a problem with that.
However, there are a lot of girls from smaller towns, who are not so fluent in English, which can make it really hard for you to communicate with each other.
Specific Things About Russian Culture
Russian girls, or better to say, Russian families are very traditional, which might be a drawback to some people.
If you come from the western world, you might find that having several generations of one family living together in a big house or meeting older ladies called babushkas is a bit weird, then wait until you meet the head of the house, usually the father, who will definitely put you through some serious testing to see if you are the right fit for his little girl.
It’s Hard for Them to Leave Their Home
Another completely wrong stereotype about Russian girls is a statement that all of them can’t wait to get out of Russia and come live with you.
That is simply not true. In fact, it is often really hard for them to let go of their old life and leave their motherland.
They Can Be Cold
I did say that Russian girls are very friendly and open to meeting foreigners and new people.
However, sometimes they need a bit more time to open up and really let you inside their heart, which can make it hard for you to meet true them.
However, if you manage to overcome that period, you will not regret it.
Physical Distance Is Potential Obstacle
Well, this issue is not just common for Russian girls, but for all of humanity. Long-distance relationships are hard because when they have no physical contact with each other, people often lose interest and love simply fades away.
It is hard to maintain real love without hugging that person every so often.
You Will Be Jealous All the Time
Literally, all Slavic girls are beautiful as heaven, which is also true for Russian girls, of course.
While this is a huge bonus, it can also be very hard for you to endure because they will always make you jealous, especially if you do something to wrong them.
They might just decide to dress really, really nice so other people would look at them all the time, which can be really hard to endure if you are a jealous type.
Russian Girls Can Be a Bit Suspicious
Apart from wanting to make you jealous, Russian girls are extremely jealous as well.
They will keep asking about your female friends and blah blah, so be ready for that kind of talk.
Also, they tend not to trust so easily, especially in case of online dating, so you will need to prove that you are serious, by talking to them for hours and sharing more about yourself.
How to make a Russian woman fall in love with you
Now, this one requires a bit of work and time.
Let’s assume that you already started talking to her (online, for example), and everything goes great.
You’ll have to go on a date probably in order to win her heart. They are not that easy when it comes to falling in love. They are quite emotional, even though they look cold (Nordic).
Now, there are several things that are must-know according to some Russian girls about Russian girls (insider’s secrets that some Russian girls shared with me, oh yea) and according to my observations:
How feminine are they? Don’t get on their nerves!
Being surrounded by all the manliness of Russian men, they naturally are quite feminine.
So, if you want to even get a chance to date one, you’ll have to grow your beard (metaphorically). Russian girls are quite emotive, and girly- at least that’s what I saw.
Even though they are girly and feminine, when you get on their nerves, they turn into beasts.
During my time in Russia, a lot of Russian words (bad ones, I suppose) were said, and none of them from my side.
Apart from that, they are quite feminine. True ladies, prideful, and glamorous.
So, try to avoid getting on their nerves as it’s lava that you are avoiding.
Respect the family
The communism is strong with them! Jokes aside, they were probably raised in a family that was under the strong communism influence.
That being said, they are thought to respect their old ones.
And what I noticed during my time there, is that they indeed have huge respect for their parents. I mean, we all have respect for our old ones.
But when I say huge, I mean like “enormous respect” – mother and father equal saints.
So, be it communist influence, or whatever it is, you should respect their parents as well.
Of course, if you don’t get anywhere near parents, respect them in front of her, while talking about them. Accordingly, show that you love and respect your own parents.
That way, she will identify.
How well do they dance? You need to have some moves!
Russian girls are quite good dancers. Now, they do not have any “national girly dance”, but they can move on the dance floor.
I mean, comparing to Colombian women, they are nowhere near, having in mind the passion Colombian women express.
However, they have certain passion dancing to pop music, swinging their hips, and provoking everyone who looks in their direction.
In general, Russian men are not that good as dancers (I mean, we can say that they aren’t if we compare them, again, with Colombian men, for example), so your chances are rising.
Russian girls love dancing, and with just a few dancing tricks in your sleeve, you might be the partner they are looking for.
Respect their religion
They are orthodox Christians and religion is highly implemented or totally ignored. So, one day I met a girl that is almost a nun (religious as hell), and the other day I met a girl who barely knows who’s Christ.
Okay, I exaggerate, but you see the point. Either they care about tradition and religion, or they are totally indifferent.
Whatever may be the case, respect it. That’s the neutral ground you are looking to play on.
Respect the culture
Russian culture is gigantic and full of wonders. You must have seen all the pictures of those wonderful looking Cathedrals, Museums, and palaces.
Not only that part of the culture but much more… folk dance, writers, rich history, artists.
To get to the point: Russian girls are proud of their culture. You need to show a lot of interest in it in order to close the deal.
Once you meet them online, you can even ask for a tour. That’ll work!
If you are visiting (living) a modern, not so traditional part of the Russian (for example, these 3 cities I’ve named before), you’ll probably meet a lot of fashionable girls.
Furthermore, trying to conquer a lady that looks astonishing in your 5 yr. old yeans simply won’t do the job, unless you are super charming.
I’m not saying that you should look as if you just walked down the runway, but you need to dress accordingly to your “goal”.
Maybe do a fine balance between being a bit formal (elegant), and casual on the other side. That’s always in fashion.
It’s more than obvious, Russian girls are jealous. There are a lot of blondes, and if your girl happened to be blonde and blue-eyed (high chances), she will feel threatened by any blonde that’s passing by.
And that’s okay, she is probably right. She has a right to being jealous.
Now, what’s more important- you don’t have the right to be jealous (that’s what they say).
They hate when a man is jealous.
And the reasoning behind it is pretty simple- they are really loyal. It’s a stereotype, and it’s a true one. So, being jealous is a huge no-go for them.
Your look matters
Russian girls are no different when it comes to this matter. They love handsome men, and who doesn’t?
Nothing strange with that.
Now, why would you have more chances than any other Russian guy? Well, you are different. No matter where are you from, the chances are very small that you look like a Russian guy.
Being different is kinda interesting. They are tired of seeing all the Russians (blue, blonde, blue at every corner). A bit darker skin and hair can work in your favor.
So, use this as your advantage, since these crazy Russian girls (positively) want to experiment. Be their lab mouse.
I guess, looking average could work. If you are fit, that’s a huge plus. Honestly, I’ve seen a lot of… let’s say “not-in-shape” boys over there.
You definitely have a chance!
Dress up nice, shave your beard and be manly- that’s what they like.
At least for the start. It might sound cliché, but physical appearance matters, at least for the start. Later on, it all about your personality.
Don’t be cheap
If you are taking her out to date, make sure to bring enough money because it’s all on you, gentleman. Being cheap is a huge minus. Even bigger minus than it is in Siberia.
Russian girls, as any other Slavic girls have something strange implemented in their logic. They expect and rely so much on your manliness.
Now, you might think that you are manly enough. Let me ask you.
How do you imagine Russian boys? Exactly, with axes in their teeth. There’s a reason!
They are so manly, it’s true. So, being surrounded by all the manliness, these girls expect nothing less from you.
Now, you can spice things up a bit. Rather than being just manly, be a gentleman. Show that you care.
That’s the best combination, and it worked well for me.
Be the one she wants
Who does she want? She wants a strong manly leader, shortly.
Simply put, you will have to have a lot of confidence. From meeting your girl online, asking for her number, talking, to asking her out.
And you will need to draw the line between arrogance and confidence. Don’t, under any circumstance, be that arrogant freak.
Just be pleasant, gentleman, but confident! How do you become confident if you aren’t?
Know them first, follow my tips!
The wider your knowledge is about Russian girls, the bigger your confidence aura is. And the bigger your confidence aura is, the higher are the chances of closing the deal.
А ты говоришь по русски?
You will need much more than this to get into those panties.
The thing with Russian girls is that most of them, on average, know around 20 English words (okay, I might exaggerate a bit, but you get the point).
Russia is a huge country, and most of them never left the country or felt the need to go abroad.
Their culture is strong and language implemented so deep into their personalities. Don’t be surprised that some Russian girls know English very well, but avoid using it.
So, you will have to find mutual ground and your way around with words or even go one step further in order to close the deal.
Either you learn basic Russian yourself, or teach her English. After all, once tongues are touched, you both speak the same language.
But the problem is even to start a conversation with Russian girls. Chances are that if you start talking English, you’ll probably get ignored so damn hard (with a strange look as if you were from another planet).
You need to approach carefully.
What I suggest, and what I did, is learn a couple of Russian words. I’ve used basic- approaching language, just to start the conversation.
For example, learn some opening phrases.
Like, “you are beautiful” in Russian would be “ты красивая”.
Thank me later!
I mean, you’ll “speak Russian” only for a few seconds, but the moment you open your mouth they’ll find out that you ain’t Russian, boy. And use that to your favor.
So, what I did several times during my Moscow time, (even if I knew how to pronounce some Russian words) I faked strange Russian accent. Actually, I used American Russian with that soft “r”.
If that makes any sense. They found it kinda cute (especially pronouncing “privet”, which means hello), they laughed for a short time, which already got me into the game.
The next thing running from my mouth was: “I mean, I need someone to teach me Russian, I’m willing to learn, and some guys already thought me several basic words to say hello like cyka, blyat, pizdec…”.
Of course, these are not “hello” words, these are bad words (which you probably already know), but since they are coming from foreigner’s mouth they find it funny and strangely cute.
No matter how stupid it sounds, it worked.
And I think it worked because I showed them I’m willing to learn their language. So that’s the point.
I look at it as putting them into their comfort zone. Like, “you don’t have to do anything; I will learn your language just to have a chance to chat with you”.
Wouldn’t you be flattered if someone tried so hard to learn your language? It kinda sounds cool.
Just make them feel comfortable, and don’t move them out of their comfort zones.
If you insist too much on English, the chances are high that you’ll make them feel uncomfortable talking on a language that’s not their mother tongue.
So, here’s a recipe for you to get a bit closer to these amazingly looking girls:
Learn some Russian to impress them and say hello. Once you establish this connection, you can state somehow that you are new around and trying to learn the language (of course, keep the smile and charm coming while talking).
You have good chances that a Russian girl will start throwing some words at you and begin the course already (and trust me, sometimes it sounds like they are cursing or something, even though they are just expressing love).
Maybe ask them to say something romantic so that you can repeat afterward.
It always sounds funny when a foreigner tries to repeat your sentence, right?
There goes one smile, followed by another one… You might even start talking on English, and if you manage to drag her from her comfort zone to yours, more than half of the job is done.
Just keep the tempo, ask questions, try to listen, smile…
It’s not rocket science. It’s actually quite simple.
The Most Beautiful Russian Women
Now that you’ve learned something about Russian women, what makes them different than women from other countries, how to impress them and what could be the strengths and weaknesses of dating Russian women, let’s show you some pretty women from Russia.
I am going to list 10 most beautiful Russian women (and these are famous Russian women!) in the world according to several votes and contests are done by multiple websites and experts.
