10 Struggles Of Dating A Russian Girl

If you've ever wanted to date a Russian girl or maybe you've wondered what it's like to date one of us, then you've come to the right place. I'll tell you everything you need to know about our mysterious culture. We're not as cold hearted and bitchy as you might think we are. Russian girls are actually quite nice once you get to know them better. We do have our moments, though... If you're not yet convinced that you should be dating a Russian girl, check this article out, because you totally should. So here are 10 struggles you'll definitely face if you date a Russian girl.

1. We take a really long time to get ready

Russian girls are particularly concerned with physical appearance. We'll take hours to get ready for a night out. You've been warned.

2. We're sometimes always late

Because of #1, we're very often late. Of course, there are Russian girls who are punctual, but generally, we're pretty bad with timing. Expect like a half hour delay at least...

3. We'll annoy you with superstitions

Russians are extremely superstitious. You can't whistle inside the house because you'll have no money. You can't spill salt, if you do - you'll get into an argument with a family member. You can't sit at a table corner or else you won't ever get married. And the list goes on.

4. You won't get our jokes

Russian humor is very different from North-American humor. We have a lot of racist and sexist jokes. When we translate them to English, all we get is an awkward look as a response. Oops!

5. Our accent

You might actually really like our accent. The struggle is - you won't understand half the things we're trying to say. So you'll just end up pretending that you do.

6. We'll feed you weird food

Russian food is very particular. Number 1 - it's not very pretty to look at. Number 2 - we use weird ingredients. For example, we have a salad called "A herring under a fur coat". it's basically cured herring fish under layers of mayo, potatoes, carrots and beets. Lots of beets. It definitely takes time getting used to.

7. We'll outdrink you

Most of us have a very high alcohol tolerance. So if you're planning on getting us tipsy after a couple of shots, think again.

8. Our parents will force feed you

It doesn't matter if you're hungry or not - you have to eat if you come over to a Russian house. It's rude if you don't eat too much. As I mentioned previously, you'll find some of the food items gross, but you'll get used to it.

9. Most of us LOVE cats

A lot of Russian families have cats. It's part of our culture. Obviously, some Russian girls are dog people, but most are crazy cat ladies.

10. We're straight forward

Russians don't beat around the bush. If we don't like something, we tell you straight up. If you ask us for an opinion, prepare yourself for a blunt response. Things like, "Do I look good?" might get a "Nope!" as an answer.
