Some say russian women are a lot more independent, strong, loyal, helpful and with less bitchy characters than "spoiled" western women, yet according to others they're generally gold diggers, think having is job is only reserved for men, and extremely stubborn and agressive.
Is it true that russian women prefer nondrinking men and don't care that much about the appearance and clothing of men?
Frome my 2 trips to Russia, my personal impressions of russian girls my age is that they're just like other east europeans. Very cold(colder than bulgarians and balkan peoples) unless you're very good friends, shallow uniform interests, extreme care on appearance in public(this stereotype is true),prejuduced, snobbish, focus more on first impressions rather than true character and preference for mafia, military serving(spetsnaz or VDV only), or martial artist "bad boy yet gentleman" types.
If you're an eastern european(russian included) nerd, gamer, hipster, artist, (or any other unique or obscure interest beyond clubs, football,and bodybuilding), or look differently what the latest fashion entails( have long hear instead of buzzcut, beard, wear practical or old fashioned clothes, wear unique colors) you're instantly reviled and unnatractive to 99% of girls here.
And for those westerners complaining about feminazi bitches with unnatainable relationship standards, also even the ugliest eastern european woman will only go for at least an 8/10 in appearance guy. The grass is NEVER greener on the other side.
While it's true that russian and other east european women expect gentlemanlike behavior, they have no problem with you treating other people like complete shit as long as you're "romantic" towards her. If you haven't fought another man and won, you're unworthy to her.
From my experience in the west, society deems a far wider range of behavior , appearance and interests acceptable. Due to this, even if you aren't ripped, are slightly overweight, have no fighting skills,etc. you still have a good chance of eventually finding a woman due to coinciding interests and character(girl gamer for example, nonexistant in Russia, also strive against) alone, something almost impossible in eastern europe.
In conclusion IMO Russian women are different than what most of you in the west are used to but are far from unique and aren't superior, to western, or any other women in the world. Of course everyone is different and many of the stereotypes from both sides of the spectrum are likely to be untrue IRL.
I think its a huge topic with lots of variables. For instance, where in the CIS vs where in the EU. Also what age/type of guy+girl. And where you are meeting them. Sometimes the stereotypes are accurate. But there are many variations.
I'm British born, but of Russian descent on my father's side. Even in Eastern Europe people assume I'm full Russian born Russian, by appeareance.
But anyway, there are many types of Russian girl. In England we get the lapdancer, who's sometimes quite like your Russian stereotype. We can the New Russian (gold digger) in London, much like the Russian London song by Ri (who ironically is pretty Novo Russky herself).
There aren't really many of the homely Russian girl who wanted in new life in the West. Russia's standard of living has improved massively in recent times. Only a few Ukrainians are into the distance dating Western men stuff these days.
I think a Muscovite girl from a rich Russian family would be very different to a poor one from a military town. So stereotypes are slightly helpful, but not massively.
Yes, many Russian women like "real men". (Indeed Russian men are more traditional too). But you'll also find them liking arty/intellectual/professional types too. I think much of its down to what groups you are approaching/connected with.
There's a big difference with Britain. Britain, many men are almost camp with their apperance obsession. Whereas |Russian men, its not so big an issue, atleast in the smaller towns. British women are career obsessed, gossipy and image obsessed. In contrast Russian women (New Russians aside) seem more "real" and less inclined to "sell themselves" to a particular lifestyle etc.
TBH far too many British women are fat, plain looking and have big mouths that they engage before their brain. I also think that corporate Britain has switched something off in their souls. I also feel they align themselves with the ridiculous British "class system
As a Slav, you'd probably be horrified by some of the shit Britain has. If you tell some women you hate homos, they'll act like you shitted on their mothers head. And we have all this horrific politically correct shit - half the young people in our cities are African, or Pakistani Muslim, or gay/cross dressers or god knows what "special rights" group. Its so bad, many people don't use words like "boyfriend and girlfriend". They use the fag word "partner" for HETERO relationships. And lots of women think its "cool" to have a queer as one of her "best friends forever". W. T. F. I woke up one day and thought "what the fuck has happened to Britain".
So for various reasons, I've happily chosen Russian women as an alternative, on numerous occasions. And have been very happy that way.
BTW, I think Bulgarian women can be pretty cool. If I was you, I wouldn't want to cross them off my list too.
