Russian women are famous for their
warmth, beauty and pronounced femininity.
But their ideas, demands and characteristics can vary greatly depending on
their origin and place of residence.
In Russia there are 15 cities in which over 1 million people live (data
from Росстат - Russian Federal Statistical Office). The largest cities are
Moscow and Saint Petersburg. Moscow is the political capital of Russia and
Saint Petersburg is considered the "northern cultural capital".
Women from Russian
There are differences in living standards, lifestyles, and attitudes
towards life between people born and raised in Moscow and St Petersburg ,
people who moved there, and people living in other cities in Russia.
Of course, in the first line there are differences in wages, prices, real
estate prices, job opportunities, travel options. For example, it is
easier and, above all, cheaper to fly from Moscow to Europe than from
eastern cities such as Vladivostok.
Many Russian women from Moscow have been to Western Europe before and have
some idea of people and culture.
This is also reflected in the idea of the Russian ladies. Young women
born and raised in Moscow or St Petersburg are open, speak foreign
languages such as English or German and are more Western-oriented. They
usually have good education and career opportunities.
In finding a partner, the level of the man plays a major role for these
ladies. This refers to the level of education and its social status - so
that the couple is on the same level. The women are confident and know
exactly what they expect from a man. In the future, such a life partner
will long for self-realization in a new home and will not settle for a
role as a housewife.
Comparable differences exist in Germany between people from Munich and
Berlin, from the city and the country or from the north and south.
Russian women from the countryside
Russians from smaller towns and rural areas are generally easier.
They work a lot and have to earn their money hard. The family values are
very strong. The ladies long for domesticity and security. They are
looking for a life partner who can fulfill this. The ladies with such
values will be good housewives who will appreciate their husband's
aspiration to earn money for the family.
Russian women from rural areas often have a misconception about life in
the West and Western European men.
You would like to meet a partner from Western Europe, because they value
his positive qualities and advantages over Russian men. But in the
subconscious, they expect a German man to act like a Russian man: that is,
to take the immediate initiative and "lead" the relationship. The man is
considered the decision maker and breadwinner of the family. She wants to
be sought after and follow her husband in the partnership.
