Dating a russian man culture
This does not indicate they are interested in you, it is simply the way they communicate.
Just like the Italians are famous for their use of gestures, Russians emphasis their point by getting close to you, or touching you.
Because whilst a Russian man might hold the door for you, he will not necessarily consider it gentlemanly to wait with sex till after marriage.
Russian men will touch you when they speak to you, as they will anyone.
If you have a Russian boyfriend you can count on him defending you and scaring off any man who tries to pester you in his presences. In all likelihood he will also defend you in dark alleys when you meet people of dubious character. Apparently, if you live in a small village where there is no real need to walk you home as you aren’t in any danger (everyone there knows everyone so there’s little chance of anything more eventful than walking past the cows) men may consider walking you home to mean something else though.That doesn’t mean he thinks it’s going to last forever, but it’s a lot less flaky than the American approach.For many Russians cheating is part of having a relationship.Of course, not all men expect this to happen, but some might, just like they expect that they will work hard to provide for the family.Therefore, have a chat to a Russian man before it gets serious about what you’d expect from family life.
Likewise, some Russians are really close to their family and might expect to spend a lot more time with their parents and other relatives than you would.
