Russian women are different from the American women we’ve known and seen in movies. In this competitive modern world, most women are focusing on their career and having a professional job, rather than having the traditional mindset of staying at home, be a traditional housewife, etc.
Even in modern times, Russian women are raised to be more family oriented than most girls in general. While on one hand, Russian women are known for their beauty, smart, grace, and caring appeal (which men find irresistible), on the other hand, the general rules for dating Russian women can be complex and confusing for those who are not familiar with the Russian culture. That’s why, this article will expand on the general etiquette of dating Russian women.
Below are the 5 etiquette of dating Russian women:

“A gentleman does not do what he wants to do, but do what he should do”. In other words, the man in the relationship would give more concern and attention to his Russian lady. The general etiquette when dating a Russian woman is to be a gentleman to her. When a man pays proper care towards his girl, the little things such as helping her to open the door, helping her in getting out of the car, offering your arm when you walk together with her, etc, will melt and win her attention and heart. Russian women have always been taught to be a proper lady led by the men. Meanwhile, Russian men have been taught to treat girls like a queen. As such, even in a relationship, this etiquette is still to be expected.
2. Giving her presents
No one will feel more pleased than a Russian girl who received a gift from their man. Offering a present during the date will show the gentle side of yourself. This is also a delicately meaningful thing to do, showcasing that you are interested in her. The purpose of giving a present or gift to your partner is to show your attention and love. Therefore, if you want to show your feelings and interests towards your Russian girlfriend, you should prepare a gift for every dates and occasion. What counts is not the gift itself, but the thought and effort that comes along with it. But it will be even better if you knew her interests and what she likes and dislikes and gift her accordingly.
