The first date can be your ticket to a successful relationship or can spoil your love story from the start. If you’re dating a Russian girl, you may wonder how to do everything right and leave a lasting impression on her. The following tips will help you win her heart.
Don’t aim at making an impression.
This piece of advice may seem rather contradictory, but it’s what you really should do to impress a Russian girl. Firstly, you should stop showing off, because you take the risk of appearing cocky to her. Be relaxed and be yourself. Girls will detect your insincerity at once, and your chances for the next date will substantially decrease.
Bring a present.
Unlike the USA and Western countries, in Russia, it’s considered appropriate to give your date a present. It shouldn’t be something extraordinary or expensive; the main purpose is to express your affection. Flowers or some sweets will do for the first date (remember that only the odd number of flowers in a bouquet is acceptable). Think over the way you’ll present your small gift: this can be accompanied by a compliment or some other nice words.
Share your talents.
There is a misconception that all Russian girls are interested in money. Everything depends on a particular girl: if she sees you only as a money bag, she doesn’t care about you as personality. But if you’re sure she is interested in you, open up and show her who you are. You can earn the respect of a Slavic girl by being eloquent, courteous, and moderately confident. Let her know about the things you’re keen on, show that you’re a man who has his passions and interests.
Choose the right spot.
A fancy restaurant isn’t a good place for the first date with a Russian girl. They value comfort and ease of communication, so take her to a coffee shop, small restaurant, or park. Choosing a more casual spot for the date will allow you to put an emphasis not on your financial status but on the conversation between you two. It will also create a favorable atmosphere for romance and getting to know each other better.
You must have noticed how Slavic girls care about how they look. You should know that they expect from you the same. It means that if you show up in sportswear or dirty shoes, be ready to be given a disapproving look, which will mean your date is going to be the last. In order not to disappoint your Russian date, you should forget about casual clothes and put on something semi-formal that will give her an impression that you care about your appearance too.
She expects a compliment from you, so go ahead. However, keep it simple and don’t go out of you way to please her. Take a closer look at her and compliment her on some feature of her appearance that catches your eye. The main purpose of your compliment is to make her smile and make her feel more comfortable. Thus, avoid being too verbose and pressing.
Focus on your dialog.
It’s out of the question that you do want to impress her, but it doesn’t mean you should focus only on your personality. You asked her out to see each other and to find out about her more. Your chat shouldn’t turn into your monologue or self-advertising campaign. Imagine that you’re old friends and have a nice talk with each other. Girls appreciate man’s ability to keep a conversation going as well as their ability to listen attentively to what she says. So, make sure your conversation is comfortable for both of you.
Russian girls like when men open the door for them, help them on with a coat or pull the chair for them. They consider the men who do those things well-mannered. Such courtesy disarms them and makes them feel womanly. You’ll definitely impress her by being a true gentleman.
