Steryotypes in a dating relationship
All women are like women, but Russian women are like goddesses. Russian women's knockout beauty is one of the most widespread stereotypes about them. And yet, it is their boyfriends who will have to pay for all this beauty, both literally and figuratively speaking.Although one must admit that the stereotype is not that far removed from reality – Russian women do pay an inordinate amount of time and attention to how they look. Putting on full makeup just to pop out to the shop? You will be constantly outraged – and may become paranoid - at the persistent your girlfriend attracts from her admirers.For example, she will drag a 20-kg package of dog food up the stairs to the 10th floor and will not ask for help. You are looking for words to tell her about your upcoming office party on Friday, but she already knows where, when and with whom you are going. She does not see her stalker-like surveillance of your social network accounts as a violation of your personal space or right to privacy.
No matter how you or your Russian girlfriend feels about these conventions from past centuries, one day she will try to surround you with a wall of pancakes (provided she is really into you anyway).
All the more so since she is likely to measure your love for her by how selflessly and willingly you eat her food.…if she has chosen you.
