Dating for marriage in russia
Make sure that you give odd number of flowers, since even number is for funerals only.Also, try to avoid yellow flowers – they are a symbol of separation or break-up.I know some cases when couples decided to get married after 2 weeks of dating and still are happy together after 10 years.As for date behavior and conversations – expect the guys to act manly and the girls to act girly.You may feel a bit underdressed and will feel more in place if you wear a more feminine outfit.
In the US – there are plenty of rules, especially regarding appropriate topics for conversations at a first date, duration of the date and the progress (what is allowed and considered appropriate at each stage of the relationship).
Expect a girl to talk about being a good cook and mentioning her “girly” hobbies.
I was really surprised that guys in the US often brag about their great cooking skills to their dates.
St’Valentine’s Day is relatively new to Russia and is still not as important as other, traditional holidays.
But it is a good opportunity to talk about dating in Russia.
