So, here are a couple of essential rules you’ll want to follow if you want to get a second date. If you’re addressing a Russian woman you don’t know in Russian, there is only one appropriate term for it and it is “devushka,” which means “young woman.” And yes, even if the woman in question is in her late fifties, she would still be a “devushka.” Any other form of address would not just upset her, but could also be seen as an insult. In Russia, a woman expects you to pick up the bill on dates even when she is technically the one that invited you and even if you ordered a cup of coffee while she enjoyed a five-course meal with dessert.Yes, in Paris or New York, people tend to go halfsies on a bill.The following are just some of the services you will find avaible to you via this site: Be a part of A Foreign Affair (AFA)'s exclusive live telephone discussion groups as our panel answers your questions concerning Russian brides, Russian women, Latin women, Asian women immigration issues, cultural differences and Russian marriage services/Singles Tours.

Compared to their Western counterparts, Russian women are more open to male chivalry – and are more likely to expect it from you. In Russia giving flowers in even numbers is only considered appropriate for funerals, although modern florists claim you’ll be fine as long as the total number exceeds a dozen.Opening the car door for her, helping her with her coat, letting a woman go first when entering or exiting a building – all of this is standard operating procedure in Russia, but they help to make a good impression nonetheless. So, as a rule of thumb, either buy flowers in odd numbers, or buy so many that she won’t be able to count.In Moscow on the other hand, if you try such a maneuver then your date will likely think you’re a cheapskate. Feminism is something Russian women tend to leave at home when they go to a grocery store.If she is a well-mannered person, she would probably get her purse and do a fake “reach” for her wallet, making it seem like she is ready to pay her share. If there are two bags in front of you two, and one is heavier, you should take both of them.
