Dating a russian man
Till next time, if you don’t like it here, rot op naar je eigen land!
St’Valentine’s Day is relatively new to Russia and is still not as important as other, traditional holidays.
In order to get a Dutch man to go on a date, you’ll need to behave the same way as the natives.
Due to world war two, and deaths caused by alcoholism, Russia has more women than men.
If a Dutch man is interested in you, he might, if you’re lucky, send you the following text message several weeks after your first date. Before you know it, your defences will be overrun and you’ll be annexed like the Crimea. Dutch and Russian men take different approaches to meeting the parents of their partners for the first time.
Your Dutch boyfriend will visit your parents empty handed.
As a Russian friend said to me “sometimes you like a meal in a michelin star restaurant, other times you fancy fast food, what’s the problem with that?The latter is expected in 100% of cases, so do not be surprised that the girl will not even offer to share.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.Bringing gifts, wine, or even a bottle of mineral water is seen as completely unnecessary.After all, your parents have the same access to shops as he does. If he suggests to your mother that she should lose weight, or makes disparaging jokes about your country of origin, he’s only ‘telling it like it is’ and they shouldn’t take offense.

The Russian male must demonstrate his masculinity at all times, and actually, you should be proud of him for being so virile.He’ll bring along plenty to drink, and will proceed to get you and your father drunk while attempting to seduce your mother. If you’ve managed to pop out at least two children, you might find yourself visiting city hall on a Monday when it’s cheaper to get married.” To summarise: If you prefer men to be men, and would like to be swept off your feet, and don’t object if your man pops out for an occasional takeaway, go Russian.If on the other hand, you enjoy the financial security that comes with never spending any money unless it’s absolutely necessary, then go Dutch.
