And preparing a great traditional meal by candlelight just may be the way to make sure that you keep the key to her heart!   Solyanka Soup Soup is usually the first thing served at a meal. Russian soups used to be referred to as Khlebovo or Pokhlyobka, both of which means soup with cereals.   Solyanka Soup is a type of Russian soup that is made with vegetables, pickles, cucumbers, meats and olives.  To make this soup, you are going to want to first cut up your onions into very small pieces. Make sure that your onions cook until they are soft in the pan. Cut up a few cucumbers and simply throw them in. After you are done with that, make sure that you pour in 4 pints or 2 liters of broth. Then add a few tablespoons of tomato paste. Next, boil your soup for 5-7 minutes. Then make sure to add your beef cubes. You can pick from veal, beef or ham.

Recently, I read a great article entitled, Russian Women Let Men Be Men. The article talked a lot about the femenist movement in America, and how a lot of men feel that while the movement helped to further progress women, it also took away their femininity. While I agree somewhat with this opinion, it is also probable to say that Russian women and all other types of women are happy to let men be men as long as they feel that the men in their lives are capable of fulfilling that role. Deciding to investigate the matter further, I wanted to learn more about the specific complaints that women have about men, as I strongly believe that these very complaints are the reasons why not all women “let men be men.” How do women try to solve relationship problems? First, it is important to note that major problems usually occur after a woman feels that she has attempted many times to solve smaller problems. In many cases, women are the ones to initiate Marriage counseling, or are often the ones at the book store buying self help books on relationship issues. Thus, women usually become fed up and do not believe that their partners have a sincere interest in solving the problems at hand. In response, a woman will take matters into her own hands, where she is likely seen as assuming a more dominant role in the relationship as usual. What are the main reasons that women complain about their partners? In relation to these accusations, the biggest reason that women file for divorce is “mental cruelty.” While often times these women are not being emotionally abused, they feel that the men in their lives have stopped communicating effectively with them and that their men are also acting indifferently towards them altogether. More so, sometimes women feel completely neglected by their husbands, because these husbands start talking to their wives less and stay away from home for longer periods of time, usually without the courtesy of a phone call! Other common complaints that women have about their partners include being constantly ignored, having to deal with the man watching TV non-stop, slacking on phone calls to simply say “Hello” and ask his lady how his day is going, and not apologizing for hurting the woman’s feelings, while at the same time blaming her for being too sensitive. Are these complaints usually valid? Willard F. Harley Jr. who has a Ph.D. in the field of Psychology often counsels men after women have confronted them with these and other similar issues. Talking about the matter further he states, “I’ve proven to husbands over and over again that their wives usually do not expect too much of them, and when they understand and respond to their wives’ frustration, the complaining ends and a terrific marriage begins.” He further explains that women just want men to “focus their efforts in the right places and not make new ones.” He has learned throughout his years as a Psychologist that all most women really want is to find who they think their soul-mate is, to have a man who will listen to them, for him to be trust worthy, and finally to have a man who won’t make a decision without considering his lady’s feelings. Do most women want to play the man’s role in a relationship? When a man takes all of these things into account, women are happy to let their partners truly take on the role of being the man. However, when she feels that he is not living up to his respective role, the woman will often begrudgingly take on that role herself. On the contrary, this is usually not the case if a woman feels emotionally connected to her partner. This mode of thought goes for all women, including Russian women. Furthermore, most women are thrilled when a man acts like a gentleman by doing things such as opening doors and walking on the outside of the street. In essence, many women feel that if men want to be men, they need to step up to the plate and act like it.

Popular Russian Fairytales have been a part of Russian culture for years. Besides children enjoying these wonderful stories before bedtime, these stories have also been valued by adults for the many great lessons that they teach. Thus, women and men not only relish these longtime stories because they are so enjoyable, but also because learning lessons through famous Russian fairytales helps them live even more productive lives. A Famous Russian Fairytale A famous Russian fairytale tells the story of a lovely Snowmaiden named Snyegurochka. Snyegurochka was not born into the world like other children, but made of snow by her grandparents. To give her character, her grandparents gave her two dark blue beads for her eyes, impressed two dimples upon her cheeks, and used a beautiful red ribbon to display her delicate mouth. Shortly after making Snyegurochka, hair began to grow, and she began to smile. Like Frosty the Snowman, her legs and arms started to move as she took her first stroll through the garden. After Snyegurochka’s new transformation, her and her grandparents went to go live out their days in a wooden house known in Russia as the Izba. Shy, possibly because although beautiful, her skin color still maintained the crisp color of white. Because of this, Snyegurochka was not a child to favor rampaging outdoors. However, this changed one day when her friends persuaded her to go romping though the forest with them. After a bit of circumspection, Snyegurochka decided to go along with the plan. As her friends lived out their adventurous day in the forest, Snyegurochka sat dipping her fingers in the waters of a cold stream.  Towards the end of the day the girls were inspired by the cool evening to build a bonfire. Being young and spunky girls, who would later grow up to be lovely Russian women, they decided to play a risky game. During this game, they jumped back and forth over the fire. Skeptical, Snyegurochka sat and watched. Finally, they had successfully convinced her to join the ongoing frolic. Snyegurochka stood up and jumped over the fire. But while she was in the air, a hissing snake sound could be heard throughout the land. Soon afterwards her friends watched rising smoke form into a cloud. As the cloud rose, the disbelieving youngsters stood in shock. The rising cloud was actually Snyegurochka. The poor girl had melted! Moral of the Story There are likely many morals that one can take away from this story. However, for gentlemen the moral of the story just may be to take action so that your hot Russian Snowmaiden doesn’t melt, or get away.

Born in the late 19th century in a small Siberian village, Grigori Efimovich Rasputin was a controversial Russian figure, known for womanizing and drunkenness in his early days. In his later years, Rasputin was regarded as a psychic, a prophet and a healer, but was given the nickname "Mad Monk" by his detractors. Most of what we know about this mystic figure comes from hearsay and legend. By the time Rasputin was 28 years old, he began to follow religious teachings. Shortly afterwards, he stopped drinking, smoking and eating meats and sweets. Rasputin shared his new founded ways and knowledge with people throughout his own village and beyond. His teachings were especially captivating to Russian women. This is most likely due to his claim that he had the ability to “charm away unhappiness.” After becoming good friends with Empress Alexandra, he healed her son, Tsesarevich Alexei Nicholaevich. Throughout this feat, Rasputin gained a lot of influence with the Russian Orthodox Church and Tsar Nicholas II. However, since Rasputin’s influence on the church seemed to be nonpartisan, not everyone supported him. In fact, he was later murdered on a cold December day in 1916 by Prince Felix Yusupov, the Grand Duke Dmitry Pavlovich, and other nobles. It should be noted that Rasputin did not die at the first attempt of his murderers. Thus, after trying to kill Rasputin by serving him poisoned cakes and wine, he still remained alive. When that didn’t work, they shot him. Once they again realized that he was alive, the nobles badly beat him. After it was clear that their attempts were worthless, they tossed Rasputin’s body into the Neva River. Here, he drowned shortly afterwards. In the 1990’s, a large mass of people in the Russian Orthodox Church, lobbied in favor of Rasputin being granted sainthood. If permission is granted, he will become known as the Martyr of God, and Tsar Elder Grigori Novy.
