This is how most Russian people have developed their taste for live performances.Movie theatres are also becoming popular in Russia and they are equipped with the latest sound systems.Just as is the case for Russian women, there are certain things that Russian men like and even expect from Russian women and would like to see the same in a partner who is not from Russia – although they might never admit it.
People that were doing community work were given benefits (free or discounted travel, ability to buy deficit goods, ability to receive a better apartment from the government for free etc) - remember, there was no private property until Perestroika, everything used to belong to the state, which was controlling distribution and would award the most active citizens.
Unfortunately the system of volunteering was broken with Perestroika but Russians still have that great community spirit (which sometimes goes to the lengths a westerner would consider as infringement). The power of an individual in Russia is much less than in the west and most deals are pushed through family, friends and acquaintances.
Russian women can sometimes be headstrong, and while they may complain about it, Russian men like a woman with a strong opinion.
So if you have one – don’t be afraid to express it.
When looking at Russian men as potential matches, there are a few things you should know.
Russian men are slightly easier to impress than Russian women, but they also make much faster judgments about whether or not a woman is right for them – and they can be very dismissive if they decide you’re not the one (and difficult to convince otherwise).The most common myths are discussed on this page, I've picked out 9 of them.When you have a chance to visit Russia, you definitely will be surprised seeing so many beautiful women on the streets.Russians are also big fond of live performances at theatres and since tickets are affordable (prices in cinemas and theatres are comparable), they enjoy attending theatres: opera, musical, ballet, drama etc. The theatre culture was developed during the Soviet times when tickets were sold through schools and enterprises: cities were divided into areas and there was a theatre agent responsible for each particular area.The agent would bring tickets for distribution to every enterprise and school in his area and the person responsible for "culture sector" would organize collective visit to the theatre.I think it was an excellent system since people had the opportunity to attend theatres from the early age, starting from attending performances in a Muppet theatre, then moving to the Youth Drama Theatre, then to Drama, Musical and Opera, according to their age.
