Russians are reserved and try to keep the distance before you become close to them.Any Russian girl can create an impression of Ice Queen, even if she likes you (especially if she really likes you! I met Paul at work on one of my tours, and he told me he came to Moscow to visit his girlfriend.
Slowly, step by step, I discover that underneath this ice there was the most loving and caring person in the world.” For many Russian women cooking is a way to show their love, so be prepared for food experiments.

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.

My friend Sasha wears high heels every day and doesn’t worry about the lack of comfort as soon as it looks great.
Also, during five years of teaching she has never appeared at school wearing the same outfit twice.
