The russian girls, and all the things that follow.
First, I know full well it’s always quite complicated to talk about people from somewhere in the world. There will always be a group of them blaming you for saying this and this, accusing you of not knowing the country. There will always be some people ready to bang their heads on walls for their origins. I think it is ridiculous, but in a way I understand them when reading some articles about their nation written by people who allow themselves to say huge and nasty things, knowing very few about it. All this to tell you I’m not going to shock anyone, I will try to remain careful and delicate with the Russian ladies.
Why do I write this article ? For when you get a little interested in Russia, that you have to face these women, it is impossible not to really reflect about it (particularly when the boyfriend is right among them).
The stereotypes we have in
But first, an important thing to understand is what kind of women are the French women, for you to understand to which point the difference is huge. The French women speak their mind, practice irony and self-mokery, mix with guys, hang out with them, smoke with them, and at the same time have a cute thing, behaviour, a bit candid that I never felt in other women from abroad. In
Now you’re gonna tell me who is the damn muse. Who are the muses ? Russian girls ?
I would like to tell you “yes, they are the new muses of the world”, because they appear in so much fashion brand ads. But the Russian girl of high fashion is a dream, a fantasy. It does not correspond to the reality : the Russian girls in
Are they really beautiful ? Do they all have long legs, golden hair, high and prominent cheekbones, pulpy lips and porcelain skin ? No they aren’t, not all of them. Actually there are lots of kinds of beauty in
What I can say is that there are lots of cute girls – not insanely beautiful, but cute girls in
When I was in
How do I recognize Russian girls abroad ? They dress in a more sophisticated way than others, or in a vulgar way, they have high heels, they don’t smile, they often put too much make up and they often hold a bunch of flowers. Sorry for this odd and somewhat negative painting but that’s how it is and I very rarely mistake! They often have a nice body, more than the face. I saw so many pictures of girls with mini shorts/mini skirts, low-waisted, with a very plate and tanned belly, like you only see on photoshopped pictures…but there is reality. Is slimness genetical in
Some girls – normal girls – not prostitutes – but where is the frontier there, tell me ? – don’t hesitate to put pictures of them naked or almost naked on vkontakte to attract guys. The first thing any French girl would say in front of that would be ‘dirty whores, gosh, how dirty they are...” ….I would like to analyse this reaction. Who of the two is right ? Is it right to be sexy/almost naked to attract guys ? Is it right to think girls should not do this ? Is it right to criticize those who do it ? I don’t want to appear as the angry jealous European girl in front of all these burning Russians. I think I’m not, I’m only sometimes worried because my boyfriend is surrounded by them (I also have to assume to have chosen a Russian one….for me it’s funny when I hear French girls saying “fed up with all those bitches” talking about other French girls a little bit crazier and prettier than them…they didn’t see what ‘s going on in the East !)
By the way, I really want to say too that not ALL Russian girls correspond to my description. Some of them are more discreet, less superficial, I don’t know how to say…more like European. Some of them are really great girls, artists, clever, with a nice heart and a good style.
I actually noticed that over there, in
This kind of separation between the two sexes, which I have to say is a little retrogressive, helped them (men, and women) to build a huge solidarity in each one of their groups. The Russian men’s friendship and faithfulness are one of the highest I’ve ever seen. The Russian women’s solidarity and direct complicity (even if they don’t really know each other) is huge compared to what you can see in
The men, at first sight, seem to be nicer than the girls. They smile, laugh, drink more easily than the girls who remain serious and want to keep their sexy/femme fatale carapace.
The girls will never ever complain about something when they are in a relationship. They will admit very rarely their jealousy. They will always cook for their boyfriend. They are like lovely dolls, but maybe manipulating guys by behind. I know, as a French girl, I could never remain of marble like these girls. If I’m angry I need to scream right at the moment and tell all the truth. Feminism is well set in
I actually like the fact they make a lot of photos of them(even if some are too ridiculous), I think it’s a cool, funny thing. In our modern society, every girl has the possibility to feel more beautiful, to prove herself she can be pretty, every girl need it to feel good…at least it is what I think…I agree with myself. The photos and the classy/sexy clothes and attitude is also cool to me (almost impossible thing to do in
Sex would dominate the world. And if sex dominates the world, love would surely die. Because love is like putting a vale on sex, and being interested in it because you can’t get it with this special person. Sex would totally erase all feelings between men and women, only would remain animal pulsions. I know it’s a very fast and vague explanation of what can be love, I know it’s more complex than that, I know you can fall in love because you made love…..but well…..I think I’m right anyway….I love sex but I am sometimes very scared and feeling overwhelmed by it. Too much sex everywhere…..I read in an article that, according to real interviews of random Russian people, less than 50% of russians are in love nowadays.
What I can say as a conclusion, after this very messy article, is that I love Russian girls, I am anyway fascinated by Russian people. I want them to stay pretty, but I want them to speak their minds too…..and being less materialistic. I remember having read an article in the newspaper “20 minutes” delivered next to the metro in
I wrote this article with only what I had, my thoughts, my experiences, what I heard, what I read…..and prasti if I said something not right. I don’t claim knowing everything about
