Russian dating guide
It’s a little more complicated outside of the dating scene.I’m grateful when a man helps me down from the bus or train.
It’s a little Pavlovian, but for now I find it cute so no harm, no foul.
I’m Australian and I am not yet comfortable jumping off something a little higher than I’d like it to be when my landing space is covered in snow and ice, so it is genuinely helpful.
It’s also heartwarming to see men helping women with prams, shopping bags/trolleys or whatever else up the stairs, BUT I will admit that I’m suspicious of what my male 14-year-old students are up to when they insist on holding the classroom door open for me.
My relationship resume is made up of native speakers or ESL speakers with near-native fluency.
I am guilty of forgetting that this level of fluency isn’t the norm in Russia and have made more than one assumption of understanding only for it to come back and bite me since I got here. 🙂 I asked my friend if he likes spicy food, he assured me that he does.
In Australia, women who cannot cook or who don’t take ownership of housekeeping duties aren’t going to be ostracized these days.
