As for date behavior and conversations – expect the guys to act manly and the girls to act girly.A guy will talk about his business or his job a lot and will find a way to demonstrate his wealth by mentioning his car, house and other evidences of status.People act as they wish and are rather emotional than rational.Of course being too intimate after one date is a “no-no” everywhere; one-night stands are never wise if you want a long-term relationship.Flowers are a must, not only for important events, but also for everyday dates.
Long-stemmed red roses are a safe bet and the most appreciated flowers, since they symbol love.
Avoid orchids (also separation connotation), carnations (too formal and remind of Soviet time) and lilies (smell is too acute).
Girls are never expected to plan the date – it is a man, who thinks, plans and surprises his princess. Girls are expected to be pretty, that is a skill that all Russian girls have mastered to a greatest extent.
She will want to look perfect and she will look at her best.
Most of the time that has nothing to do with her trying to look chic in order to extract any benefits from you (contrary to the popular opinion). However, she will expect a lot of admiration in return, so do not be shy to compliment her on her looks.
