What Do Russian Women Think of American Men? The Good, the Bad & the Truth

Russian women are the most beautiful women on this planet, well at least in my opinion. I have been to Russia numerous times and have also met many Eastern European women here in America. Through these encounters I have discovered their personalities to be equally as appealing as their looks. In my experience Russian women have proven themselves to be humble, sweet and polite. That being said the really question is what do Russian women think of American men?

The Basics

Firstly let us differentiate between the two kinds of American men that Russian women will date or marry. First are the men who are looking for Russian wives either online or physically going to Russia in search. There are programs in which you can go to Russia with a tour group in hopes of finding a Russian girlfriend. On these trips men are introduced to Russian women who are looking to date American men. These men typically use wealth as the main strategy to land a Russia girlfriend or wife.  These men may not be rich by American standards but if you are middle class in America you will be seen as rich in the eyes of a Russian. Typically these types of guys are unable to get a girl in the traditional fashion and are therefore essentially looking to purchase a girlfriend or wife. Unfortunately, most of the Russian women don’t actually like these men for who they are but instead see freedom in form of wealth. This type of situation has the risk to end badly. The women are really marrying the men for money and there is no real love there. While this is not always the case, it is a high probability.

Next you have a standard American guy who is just seeking a girlfriend or partner regardless of their nationality. This situation usually ends much better than the previous one discussed. This is a traditional dating model where boy meets girl and they fall in love and there is no ulterior motives. However,  because America has a much better standard of living comparability to Russia there will always be that underlying appeal of shacking up with an American men. This type of guy seems to have more long term success with his Russian girl than the first guy described.

The Good

Think about how women in America act when they hear a British or Australian accent, they love it. Russian women are no different; an American man is exotic to them because American men are not the normal guys they interact on a day to day basis. Additionally, American men have a completely different way of set of values and beliefs due to cultural environments in which they are raised. Generally, American men are more loving, caring and kind than Russian men. In Russian the culture is heavily infused with hard drinking and openly disobeying societal rules and regulations. This leaves Russian women having very little in the way of stability and security. American men on average are raised to follow social norms and therefore, their behavior is more attractive to Russian women. Russian women see American men as safe and secure.

The Bad

A common complaint from Russian women is the respect level given from American men. I have heard many Russian women explain that their American boyfriend or husband treats them like the maid. Meaning the men expects the women to do all the cooking and cleaning for the household. I have also heard Russian women complaining they get less respect from their American partner as they are seen as a foreigners and therefore less than. I think this dynamic is more common in couples in which the initial attraction for the women was money versus love. When one partner does not work or is unable to work sometimes the power dynamic can be tricky to balance. The other thing is I have also heard the maid compliant from American women about their American husband or boyfriend. So this problem may also be a sad example of how sexism still alive and well regardless of your nationality.

The Truth

It is hard to discuss Russian women and American men without address a commonly thrown around myth- Russia has way more women than men. While is actually true but only for the age demographic segment of 65 and plus. According to indexmundi.com for the age range between of 15-54 the numbers show that there is pretty much the exact same amount of women and men residing in Russia. This means Russian women are not working from a deficit position and do need American to come and save them from a loveless life. You may hear this myth being used as a marketing pull from Russian dating sites or match making services, but sadly it is not true.

The good news, American men are more exotic than Russian men and this excites Russian women. The bad news, this does not mean that all Russian women will be smitten with an American man. Dating is subjective and one person’s prince charming may be another person’s Frankenstein. I think the secret is to find a person in whom you have shared believes and values regardless of their nationality and hold on for the ride.
