Steryotypes in a dating relationship
Her dozens of bottles and jars on the bathroom shelf will very quickly crowd out your solitary antiperspirant and will eventually start falling on your head while you take your shower.
Furthermore, a lady like that will be a constant source of worry, and from time to time you will have to fight over her (it could be with your fists or in Instagram comments, but you will have to). depends on self-control, of course, but the temptation to land one day in the kitchen and never leave its cozy confines will only grow with time.
The thing is that girls in Russian families are brought up from an early age to believe one pearl of wisdom: "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach." Simply put, this means that if you cook badly or too little, your boyfriend will leave you for the girl next door.
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).
Yes, perhaps she does it in a peculiar way, but this too comes from generations of experience.
Living side by side with relatives or other families in 20 square meters of space is something that a person born in Russia is used to – in Soviet times, this was the experience of many people.

That is why she will expect more substantial proof of your loyalty, and you should be ready for this.
In other words, she wants to be surprised, entertained and won over gradually.
It is not true that she needs to be given presents all the time (although it may seem so at first).
Yet, subconsciously a Russian woman believes that a moonlit rendezvous is not convincing enough on its own.
