do young russian women date older men?

Why so many young russian women are seeking older men for dating and marriage?

Some young women are looking for an absent father. Some young russian women are seeking out the dad they never had. They want to be protected and taken care of by someone who has a sense of authority. Older men are usually more stable financially. They have built up a career. They have probably put some money away for a rainy day or retirement. But the fact is, no one really knows why anyone picks anyone else. Love is love. A young sexy russian woman who falls for an older man might just have fallen in love. Real love happens. And most of the time, a person can't even explain why they love someone else. They just do.

russian dating

russian dating and marriage traditions range from the rigid rules and regulations formulated in old times to the modern, no holds barred attitude of today’s youth. In the old days, in monarchy Russia men and women were pretty much kept apart until the matchmaker made an arrangement, introduced the two young people, talked with both sets of parents and set the wedding date.

in more modern times, in this great, progressive country, the idea of keeping the russian women and men they marry apart, especially during the marriage ceremony would be absurd. But, there are some traditions that remain in place even to this day. Based around the time-honored practice of motherly guilt, mothers hold sway over their sons and daughters and any good child will go out of his way to keep them happy.
