If you’re like a lot of guys, you’re likely to wonder what’s really on your Russian lady’s mind when she crosses her legs, plays with her hair, or leans back in her chair. These nonverbal clues can be an important indicator of a lady’s level of interest. Whether you’re chatting via online video or actually meeting her in-person for the first time, there are many common body language elements that can provide you with much insight into what’s on her mind. Some of the good signs Open palms: If she holds her hands open with her palms visible, it means she is relaxed and feels a connection with you. It also could be an invitation – a sign that she wants you to hold her hand. Eyebrows: If she moves her eyebrows frequently, it could be a sign of surprise. Or, if her eyebrows remain still relaxed, it’s usually a sign of interest and thoughtfulness. Eyes Focused: Constant eye-contact is one of the best signs that things are going well. She is interested and likely wants to hear more. Additionally, if her pupils are wide, it is most likely a sign that she is interested in what you have to say. Open or relaxed arms: Unfolded arms show honesty and that your lady is sincere and comfortable in the situation. Smiling: Frequent smiling suggests she likes what she’s hearing or seeing. The smiles should be ones that involve the whole face, showing teeth and stretching the cheeks. Some of the bad signs Drumming fingers, fidgeting: Rapid finger movements indicate frustration of impatience. If her hands rise to her face frequently, it could mean she is nervous or being deceptive. Legs crossed: Crossed legs can indicate defensiveness. If done while standing, it might also be an indication of shyness. Folded arms: Crossed or folded arms show anger or disapproval. This could also be a defensive move. Shifting eyes: If her eyes dart about the room while the two of you are talking, it might mean she is disinterested. However, if done while she is talking, it could be a sign of guilt or deception. Similarly, a downward gaze suggests shame. Forced smiles: You’ll know if a smile is forced if she doesn’t show teeth. A closed-lip smile suggests she is trying to be polite or is embarrassed about something. One of the most important things to remember about body language is not to overanalyze. Don’t put too much stock in little things. If she crosses her arms, it might just mean that she’s cold. Or she might be bothered by something unrelated to your conversation.

As a woman, I would like to inform gentlemen that there are certain things a man should never do when he is with his favorite Russian woman.  I am not just talking about not doing these things on a first date. I am talking about NEVER DOING THESE THINGS. Let me just start by saying that I once dumped a guy for taking these actions. We had been dating for many months, and although I really liked him, I found his actions to be completely unforgivable. Don’t Make a Rookie Move The first thing that this guy did to lead me to such a decision was make what I call a rookie move. Well, actually it was more like a high school move. In this instance, my gentleman friend invited me over to watch a movie. He wanted to watch the first Halloween movie starring Michael Myers. I told him that I would come over only if we could watch a different movie. I clearly explained that with my wild imagination, I am the last person in the world who should watch any type of horror flick. After explaining my point, my friend assured me that we could watch another movie other than Halloween. Since we had been dating for a long time, I believed him. But what happened shortly after I arrived to my gentleman friend’s house? If you said that he played the movie, you guessed right. He put Halloween disc into the DVD player even after I further insisted that we watch something else. I was scared at night for at least two weeks afterwards, and I clearly did not appreciate his actions. Don’t Give Into Your Inner Five Year Old The second thing that this guy did to lead me to my decision to never come back was throw a temper tantrum. Gentlemen re-read that last line slowly and really try to process it. I watched a 37 year old man throw a temper tantrum. During that moment, it seemed like he had traveled back in time to when he was five. We were caught up in a heated argument when I told him that “It wasn’t all about him.” He replied by yelling, “This time it is all about me!” Then he took becoming unattractive to a new level by stomping his feet! Actually, it was more like a skipping thing, where he put one foot on the ground, then the next, and then repeated with the first foot. Seriously guys, hopefully it is common knowledge that using such dating moves will get you absolutely NOWHERE with your future hot Russian bride. In fact, if you don’t want your hot Russian woman wandering off into the arms of another man then please, NEVER EVER DO THESE THINGS.

Recently, there was a great article, entitled How Do Russian Women Stay So Hot?, that got me to thinking: how can men stay fit in with worries about the economy, investments, your job or business, and saving the planet? With all this stress, you can forget about the most important thing, you.  You need to take care of your body, but how can you get the recommended 30 to 60 minutes of exercise a day? Here are just a few quick and easy exercises you can do and before you know it you are feeling better, your pants are fitting better and you aren’t out of breath running for the elevator.   1. Walk Around Instead of driving, taking the bus or train could you walk to work, to lunch, or the store? How about taking the stairs?  Instead of spending your whole lunch hour eating or surfing the net, take a 30 minute walk outside. Studies prove that a good 30 minute walk clears your mind, makes you more creative, gives you more energy than coffee or an energy drink and on a sunny day gives you the recommended dose of Vitamin D. If you can’t walk at lunch take a walk in the evening. It will help you wind down and will give you a good night’s sleep. Remember, at different times of the day walking instead of riding will quickly add minutes to your exercise goal.   2. Jump on a Bike Could you bike to work? Could you bike to lunch? Bike riding is a very popular way to help the planet while helping yourself. It’s a great cardio workout and stress reliever. For years it has been a very popular transportation and recreation activity in Europe. Now it is catching on in the United States and Canada. Bike trails and parks are blossoming all over the country. Cities like Portland, OR, Seattle, San Francisco, Davis, CA and Austin, TX have all encouraged residents to give up the car and get on the bikes with bike only lanes and safe bike only trails.  Even if it has been a while since you last rode, remember the old saying it’s just like riding a bike!   3. Play Sports Who doesn’t to sit on the coach, have a beer and watch our favorite sports on TV? We all do but wasn’t it more fun to play? There are many city or private fun leagues in that encourage healthy fun. Whether you enjoyed playing football, volleyball, basketball, bowling, dodge ball, cricket, swimming, skating- letting your inner child out is a wonderful way to have fun, let off steam and most importantly get fit.   4. Back to the Basics You don’t have to join a fitness club and use the fancy equipment to get in shape. Think back to when you were a kid and all that fun you had on the playground. You did not know it but you were building muscle and exercising. Basic things such as pull-ups, climbing, push-ups, jumping rope, etc. are all great exercises.   5. The Good Stuff You mother was right. I know you hate to hear it, but it is true.  Eating more fruits vegetables, lean proteins like fish, chicken, turkey, and nuts, plus drinking water are the best things you can do for your body.  Additionally, getting a good night’s sleep are great steps to help you on your fitness goal.   Make sure before you get out there and channel your inner Rocky, get a check up and talk to your doctor to make sure you healthy enough to exercise. Remember start slowly and build up to higher levels. The main thing is to do something. Go get moving to reduce your stress, improve your mind and live a long happy life with the woman of your dreams.

Online dating, like traditional dating, has its fair share of do’s and don’ts. While many standards of behavior are the same, the rules of online dating are a little different. Whether you’re new to Hot Russian Brides or just need a little guidance, here are 5 tips to help you avoid common online dating mistakes and find the Russian woman of your dreams.   1. Don’t lie Nothing will repel a lady faster than learning that her online suitor is a liar. Be truthful in your profile information! Don’t lie about your age, your job, your income, or anything else for that matter. On a similar note, don’t post a photo of you in your 30s if you’re actually in your 50s, and don’t even think about posting a photo of someone else! If things progress as you hope, you might meet your lovely Russian lady one day and what could be more humiliating than being exposed as a fake?   2. Don’t be inappropriate Once you’ve found a sexy Russian lady who’s caught your eye, the last thing you want to do is scare her away by being inappropriate. One way to do this is to ask her for nude or sexy photos or to bring up sex in the first few emails. Sex-obsessed men are a big turn off for Russian women, so tread carefully.  It’s fine to tell a woman you think she’s beautiful, but not to comment on her body.   3. Don’t post incomplete or vague profile information Your profile is the first thing a lady will see, so be sure to make it good! Don’t post an incomplete profile, or a profile with minimal information. Men who take the time to write full, developed profiles get better responses than those who write only a few words. Write about your interests, your likes and dislikes, what you’re looking for in a lady, etc. The more information you share, the better your chances of finding your perfect Russian match!   4. Don’t be needy Imagine that you’ve found the hot Russian bride of your dreams on hotrussianbrides.com. She’s seems beautiful, intelligent, and charming so you send her an introductory email. After a day or two, she doesn’t reply so you send her another email, then another and another and another.  When she doesn’t reply after a week or so, you grow disgusted and perhaps send a curt message telling her not to bother contacting you. While some women like a persistent man, others find it annoying or even frightening. Keep in mind that many Russian women are only able to access the Internet a few times each month, so be patient when awaiting a reply. A delayed response doesn’t mean she isn’t interested.   5. Don’t be too aggressive Once you’ve met the Russian lady of your dreams, don’t scare her off by being too aggressive. While she likely appreciates your enthusiasm, prematurely pushing for a physical meeting and/or marriage is sure to make her feel uneasy. Take your time. Get to know her first. There’s no need into rush things. Men who expect face-to-face meetings and marriage too soon are often disappointed.

When preparing to visit another country, it’s always helpful to familiarize yourself with local customs and etiquette. Not only will you appear polite and knowledgeable, but you are sure to make a fabulous impression on local residents, especially the women. Travel guidebooks and websites are an invaluable source of etiquette information, as are friends or acquaintances from the country you plan to visit. Concierge services (such as the one offered by www.hotrussianbrides.com) are also a great resource.   Planning a trip to Russia? Like every country, Russia has its own unique standards of etiquette. Whether you’re visiting a special Russian lady or just touring the country for fun, here are a few tips to make your stay go smoothly:   If you are invited to a private home for dinner, bring a small, appropriate gift such as wine, fruit, cake, or other tasty treats. Flowers are also acceptable (though be careful about color and quantity). If you are giving flowers, select an odd-numbered batch as even-numbered ones are typically reserved for funerals. Also, avoid giving yellow flowers to Russian women as yellow flowers traditionally symbolize the end of a relationship. Always remove your shoes when entering a private residence. This is done to help keep the host’s residence clean. Speaking of shoes, never show the soles as it is considered disrespectful. To avoid making this mistake, resist the urge to fidget, cross your legs, or rest your feet on nearby objects. Try to accept all food or alcohol offered to you. Your Russian hosts may be offended by any refusals, so come hungry and thirsty! When traveling by car with a Russian woman, exit the vehicle first so you may offer your hand to your female companion. Remember, Russian women love chivalry, so don’t be afraid to open doors, pull out chairs, or offer to carry a woman’s bags. She’ll love it! By following these simple tips, you are sure to make a great impression on Russian women and men alike. This is by no means an exhaustive list of Russian etiquette tips, nor should you worry if you slip up. Most locals will forgive you for making mistakes and will respond graciously to unintentional breaches. Just treat people with common courtesy and you’re sure to do fine. Remember, it’s the thought that counts.

In a post “Women’s Lib” world, men have been conditioned into abandoning the old fashioned, traditional dating rules.  Gone are the days when gentlemen were expected to open a door for a lady or pull out her chair; now such chivalrous actions may be interpreted by women in the West as demeaning or insulting.  For men who miss how it used to be, dating a Russian or Ukrainian woman can be a refreshing change.  The dating culture here still embraces the old fashioned approach.  Even a more modern thinking, independent Russian woman will appreciate the extra care and attention you pay her by following traditional courtship rules.    If you’ve grown too accustomed to the modern dating protocol in the West, here are some wooing tips that are sure to make your special lady swoon.   Take the Lead.  While the norm today may be to share in the planning of the evening and going “dutch” when it’s time to pay, this trend has not caught on everywhere.  Take control by planning out the date yourself – and footing the bill.  By making all the reservations and planning the schedule yourself, you not only avoid the “what do you want to do?” exchange; you also relieve her of the stress and responsibility involved in planning your first date, allowing her to relax and just focus on enjoying her time with you.    Make it Special.  Don’t treat your date like any other night out.  If you want to make a great impression on your date, dress to impress.  This doesn’t mean you’ll have to don a tuxedo (unless it’s appropriate for your destination!), but you should certainly ditch the jeans and t-shirt.  Dress well, be sure your clothes are ironed and your shoes aren’t scuffed, run a comb through your hair; you may even consider topping it off with a masculine cologne, but be careful not to go overboard.   Don’t Forget the Flowers.  Flowers play a much more significant role in Russian culture than they do in Western countries, so it is very important to present them to your date.  Keep in mind, no matter the variety you get, that the bouquet should be comprised of an odd number of flowers (even numbers are reserved for funerals and sorrowful events) and you should avoid presenting yellow roses (which can signify disinterest or the end of a relationship).   Sweep Her Off Her Feet.  You know the drill:  Open doors for her, pull out her chair, offer your jacket if it’s chilly or raining.  Don’t forget to use good table manners if you go out to eat and keep her glass full.  Another custom from a bygone era:  offer your arm to her as you walk together or as you step into or out of vehicles.  These may seem like little things, but she’ll appreciate your care and you’ll impress her with your charm.    Keep in Touch.  Don’t forget to get in touch with her the next day!  After your date or trip, call or send an email to tell her you had a wonderful time and that you’re interested in seeing her again.  This little courtesy is often neglected in the modern dating world, so if you follow this tip, you’re sure to stand out.
