1. Russian women won’t appreciate you flaunting your money.

That is why you don’t want to seem like you are trying to impress the women with your money. Guys that want to show off their financial capability either get turned down or attract the few gold diggers that no doubt are around. When you take a woman out, you don’t need to take her to the most expensive restaurant. The same goes for presents. They don’t need to be expensive. Just make them thoughtful.

2. Falling in love with an idea and no reality.

That is something that can easily happen to online daters. There are so many attractive-seeming women around. Most of us add only positive things to our profile because we want to look good. It is important to remember that everyone has their good and bad sides. It is easy to get swept away by an ideal looking profile. We may end up getting the wrong idea of the person. Spend time talking and getting to know the other person in depth. Don’t let your guard down right away.

3. Not showing enough interest.

When dating Russian women, you need to put effort into learning about their culture. It often happens in international dating that people forget about the many cultural differences they may have. Take some time and get to know the background of the person you are dating. Learn about her country’s history, about its politics, and so on.
