A date with a foreigner: what you need to be ready

Свидание с иностранцем: к чему нужно быть готовой

Since then, as the iron curtain fell, the dreams of a romantic relationship with a foreigner became absolutely normal for Russian girls. However, before you go on a first date with a Prince overseas, it is important to remember: an affair with a person of another culture is always risky and out of the comfort zone. Because you were brought up differently. So, you may have completely different views on the same things.One of the main mistakes that many people make on first meeting — ignoring the difference of mentalities. Often the Russian girls on our first date start to mentally try on a veil and wedding dress. At the same time they do not come to mind that a foreigner may not dream of an official marriage. Even if is serious and really sincere in love. The fact that, for example, in Europe absolutely other standards of relations. And “civil” marriage is considered an acceptable alternative to the registry office.”Learn from my mistake: Italians then [after the beginning of the relationship] in most cases, you do not want to get married! It makes no sense, you know?.. Yes, marriage is not a remedy from all troubles. But still here for us is better than cohabitation”, says Svetlana, a well-known blogger @italia_svetlana.Svetlana had seven years to wait for the official marriage and to live long in Italy without a painting, which of course was really hard for her.But in Egypt Russian girls waiting for other hazards. Some Egyptians on the first date (and second) do not consider it necessary to tell the truth about himself. And fed Russian mistress with tales of a wealthy family, air locks and carpets-planes. For example, an Egyptian can report that pride does not take parents ‘ money and therefore temporarily works as a waiter and has no way to give you flowers and gifts. You should not believe every word on a first date in Egypt and rush to pay for the beloved everywhere, says Maria, the leading blog about Egyptian life uncut under the name @horizon_egypt. Mary herself married to an Egyptian and have seen how some Russian girls are becoming victims of fraud by unscrupulous Eastern men.Finally, another mistake is to go on a first date with a foreigner without an online translator (unless of course you don’t speak the native language of the gentleman, or, at least, English). Sounds pretty obvious, but it is better not to hope for the best and prepare for the meeting. To recall a few useful phrases, repeat verbs and nouns. Of course, you are not on the exam, but good communication is one of the main conditions for a good date.A date with a foreigner is a kind of exciting adventure. But it is important to always remember that you and your partner like different planets: most likely, at the first meeting you will not be able to fully understand your counterpart. However, this is not a reason to abandon first date. In the end, a personal meeting is a chance to check whether you have points of contact with the bearer of another culture, are you ready to open the unknown and take a chance.
