Russian women dating black men
Most Western men who spend any time in Russia quickly find out that they can have their pick of beautiful Russian girls.
It’s assumed that this is because the Russians are aching to move away.
During my time in Moscow, I discovered that this culture of infidelity has a crushing impact on women’s relationships with each other as well.
Imagine if all your friends considered your spouse or partner fair game for a serious relationship: what would that do to your interactions with them?
It’s pretty much accepted in Russia that Putin, who has been married since 1983, has had a long-term affair with Alina Kabaeva, a former Olympic gymnast, and even that he is the father of her child, born in 2009.
Besides being good fun to talk about, no one in Russia really cares.
” and the point I made was that it doesn’t really matter if they are or not, because the pool of men is so limited that women will flock to them anyway.
This fact profoundly affects relationships in Russia.
Despite the risk of death and/or heartbreak, women in Russia still believe that finding a man is of paramount importance. Krivovyaz told me that many women will enroll in math or engineering schools in the hope that they will find men there “Women are dependent on men, she says.
With the exception of a pastor (who was sitting with his wife at the time), I didn’t meet a single married man in Russia who admitted to being monogamous.” Compare that to the United States, where statistics on adultery are notoriously unreliable due to the fact that people won’t admit to being unfaithful.
According to what I could ascertain, about 60% of men in the US will have an affair, but only 22% will reveal that to a researcher and only a small percentage of them will also reveal it to their wives.
That relationship gave me a lot of divergent “firsts”: first time a boyfriend painted my portrait vs.
first time I was ever cheated on, first time I was ever serenaded vs. Russian women find that the scarcity of men affects relationships in all sorts of ways, both blatant and subtle.
