The best example of loyalty of Russian women: in the 19th century there was a riot against the tsar, and the aristocrats who participated in that riot were sentenced for a lifelong exile and hard labor in Siberia.
Their wives followed them voluntarily to cold deserted lands and shared the punishment.
And don’t forget the initiation: the dad will most likely test you at some point.
You should prove that the family can trust you with their precious child. For example, my boyfriend Jacques had to drink a full bottle of vodka with my dad.
If you think loyalty is unnecessary and boring, don’t date Russians. Visiting your girlfriend’s house will be accompanied with feasts (soups, meat, soups with meat, salads consisting of 50% mayo, potatoes, potatoes, bliny with mince and more potatoes, and then a cake for dessert), and as it is not polite to not finish your meal in Russia, you will have to deal with all that amount of food.
For the majority of them life is like a podium, and so they have to look sparkling even on the way to get a newspaper or walking the dog.At first the cuisine might seem absolutely normal and even a little boring. You might hate most of the meals, but occasionally there will be something great (e.g., my boyfriend loves Russian salad. But when you get to eat Russian food more often than during occasional visit to her parents, you will have more and more questions. Nekrasov, a Russian 19th century poet said: “a Russian woman can stop a galloping horse and enter the burning house.” This is a powerful image of an independent woman who doesn’t really need any help or protection from men.Girls in Russia do not believe in ideal relationships and think that even if their Prince Charming finds them, they have to be able to live on their own.The thing is I’m not afraid of being single; I’m afraid of dating.
