And she will invest a lot of money in expensive manicure and other beautification procedures and a lot of time and effort on choosing what to wear and on doing make up.
Girls are never expected to plan the date – it is a man, who thinks, plans and surprises his princess. Girls are expected to be pretty, that is a skill that all Russian girls have mastered to a greatest extent.
Be aware that a girl will start preparing for the date with you minimum several hours in advance and maybe even several days in advance.
I know some cases when couples decided to get married after 2 weeks of dating and still are happy together after 10 years.
As for date behavior and conversations – expect the guys to act manly and the girls to act girly.
St’Valentine’s Day is relatively new to Russia and is still not as important as other, traditional holidays.
But it is a good opportunity to talk about dating in Russia.A guy will also talk a lot about his manly hobbies – hunting, shooting, fishing, doing manly sports, jumping with a parachute, DIY projects etc.Also, guy is expected to be a good storyteller and to make a girl laugh.And if you offer to share – you will never see her again, and not because the only thing she wanted from you was a free dinner, but because that is against the cultural norm.Flowers are a must, not only for important events, but also for everyday dates.Most of the time that has nothing to do with her trying to look chic in order to extract any benefits from you (contrary to the popular opinion). However, she will expect a lot of admiration in return, so do not be shy to compliment her on her looks.
