This topic has been debated many times but the question still comes up often: “Why do a lot of single (and married!) men chase after Russian women?” What’s so special about Russian women, in particular, anyways?
Before we dive into it any further, it’s important to note that the phrase ‘Russian women’ includes women from Ukraine and Belarus as well. They have very much in common and they are geographically close in proximity.
We decided to do some research to see what we could find on the topic (SPOILER ALERT: ALL INFORMATION WE FOUND WAS WRITTEN BY MEN, FOR MEN):
A Few Statistics About Russian Women
- According to the latest census, Russia is home to 10 million more women then men. That means there’s a surplus of eligible Russian girls.
- The number of women in their 30s exceeds the number of men significantly. After divorce, a woman has little to no chance of getting married again in Russia. This scenario has cultural roots. The average marriage age for Russian women is 23-25 years old. This means they get married relatively young. Culturally, it looks unusual if a Russian woman at the age of 30 is still unmarried.
- There are no men in Russia to get married to because mortality rate of the working age males is extremely high.
- They’re obviously beautiful (okay – this isn’t a statistic but still).
The proverb ‘Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder’ confirms that tastes differ from person to person. The woman one man considers to be beautiful, to another may not be as desirable. As humans, we can be quite picky when it comes to things like personality, physical features, mannerisms, etc.
Other Desirable Qualities
- Russian women are family-oriented
- A university or college degree is common among Russian women.
- Women from Russia are committed to their loved ones and to the upkeep of their homes
- They view their husbands as partners
- They are feminine, healthy, sexy, passionate, and sensual
- For these women, sex is all about mutual satisfaction.
- Russian women are spiritual. They love reading books, attending concerts, and going to museums.
To be completely honest, we believe most of this stuff is nothing more than fetish and perception. Women from Russia are “exotic”. That’s not to say that Russian women aren’t beautiful, educated, etc. However, the initial draw that pulls men to these women is definitely the exotic factor.
