|Russian ladies like resilient men, not complainers|
Russian ladies do not like crybabies. Russian ladies are tired of hearing Russian men complain about how difficult it is to cope in modern day Russia. In the realm of Russian ladies romance, Moscow journalist Alla Pavlova listed spiritual conversations and walks under the moon light as big turn-ons. She also had some rather sarcastic advice to potential suitors (evidently caused by bad date experiences in the past!): carry more money in your pocket than the cost of a metro token, don't expect to charm Russian ladies while you are drunk, forget about your deep passion for computers or cars. And, oh yeah, don't forget to use deodorant. In an interview with Komsomolskaya Pravda, feminist icon Maria Arbatova talked about the kind of man she finds sexually attractive. "Apart from his appearance, he must have personality. I like realized men and not crybabies. As soon as a man begins to talk about how hard life is, all my erogenous zones atrophy."
But progressive Russian ladies like Menshova and Arbatova hardly speak for all ladies of Russia because their social and economic positions give them the kind of freedom that most ladies lack. As Bezouglyi put it, the majority of Russian ladies "are still very much dependent on their boyfriends or husbands. It's still like in the States back in the '50s - Russian women want to stay home, they're sick and tired of working in an aggressive environment full of sexual harassment, long hours, accidents, so they expect a lot of support from men. Russian mail order brides are ideal life partners.
Russian ladies as homemakers
It's kind of hard to be a Russian woman these days because not only must she be responsible for her family, financially and emotionally, she also very often finds herself being the only one who brings the money home. Traditionally Russian ladies have not had to carry such a burden. As anywhere else in the world, they expect men to be responsible and sharing, but very tough at the same time." Russian ladies never expect to pay on dates, never. Even women with high incomes have told me that they sometimes offer to pay for themselves. But if a guy actually accepts this offer, forget it, the lady will never meet him again.
