Russian dating traditions

For the most part (with slight variations from country to country – region to region), Russia, Ukraine and other post-Soviet nations all share similar “rules” of social behavior.

While such forms of cheating are frowned upon in the West, rule breakers in Russian schools are largely ignored.

In business, black market and bribes (which were refined during Soviet times), are still key components of commerce.

In general, men should be strong and assertive while women should be smart and beautiful.

Accordingly, Russian women tend to dress much more femininely (as to accentuate their beauty) and men still adhere to traditional male etiquette.

For most Russians and Ukrainians, rules are meant to be broken.

At an early age school children develop innovative means to pass exams – using notes when notes are prohibited, “cooperating” with classmates when teachers exit the room.

P(1); var d = "append Child", g = "create Element", i = "src", k = h[g]("div"), l = k[d](h[g]("div")), f = h[g]("iframe"), n = "document", p; k.style.display = "none"; e.insert Before(k, e.first Child)= o "-" j; f.frame Border = "0"; = o "-frame-" j; /MSIE[ ] 6/.test(Agent) && (f[i] = "javascript:false"); f.allow Transparency = "true"; l[d](f); try catch (s) try catch (t) a.

Every culture has its unique etiquette and customs.

And while its often fun to make light of Russian driving habits, its really no joke.
