1. Be Realistic
There is a stereotype of Russian women as being gorgeous and perfect.
This, of course, is not realistic. They are as human as any other women. Some are beautiful and some are not.
Do not sign onto a Russian dating site expecting to find only supermodels.
You will be disappointed. That is unfair to the great women who may be on the site, as well.
Keep an open mind, have fun and meet as many women as you can!
2. Be Cautious
You should always be cautious when meeting people online. There are lots of great people with the best intentions but there are also predators looking to prey upon innocent, good people like yourself. Don’t allow yourself to be victimized.
Never send anyone you don’t know money or your personal information and beware of women who are overeager to get engaged or married. Trust your instincts.
3. Be Respectful
Never act arrogant or put down your new friends’ cultures, countries or beliefs. Show respect for her home country and show an interest in her religion, food preferences and anything else unique or special about her country. Being rude, insulting or condescending will not win you any points.
4. Be Prepared for a Language Barrier
Women on Russian dating sites probably will not speak English. You may not speak Russian. The two of you will have to work together to overcome the language barrier but that can also be a really fun, great way to bond and get to know one another.
5. Be Prepared to Travel
When dating internationally you will need to be prepared for travel. If one of you doesn’t travel then the two of you will never meet!
Plus, if you two are in love, it is important that you see one another in your more “natural state.” Only knowing someone online cannot keep a healthy and happy relationship going.
This will be expensive and you should be ready to spend a decent amount of cash on getting to know her.
If you are a man of few means, then you may want to think long and hard before you meet a woman on a Russian dating site. If you fall in love you may not ever be able to meet her or you two may end up having conflict.
6. Be Prepared for Cultural Clashes
You and the women on Russian dating sites will come from different backgrounds, have different beliefs, will probably have different religious and cultural traditions and will certainly have had different upbringings. This can cause conflict which is naturally and inevitable.
If the two of you are prepared for it and show respect and love for one another when clashes occur then they are certainly not a reason not to continue your relationship.
7. Be Knowledgeable about Her Country
Not only should you travel to Russia and see where she is from, you should learn as much as you can about Russia. Showing an interest in Russian history, food, culture, religion and traditions will make her feel great and will give you a chance to get a glimpse into her world.
