A man who uses body moisturizer, follows fashion trends, worries about the appearance of his nails, is not afraid to visit manicure salons, and only enjoys physical exercise in the gym, all gives rise to suspicion."Appearance is less important.
Contrary to the idea promoted by the fitness industry, it’s not really bodybuilders whom women prefer," psychologist Elena Kalen told RBTH.

"All this equality, for heaven's sake, drives me nuts, I like it when a young man helps me to take off or put on my coat, or holds the door for me," some Russian women write on social media forums.
Another paradox is that, essentially, a female in Russia often regards herself by definition as an object of adoration, says Chubarov.
Rest assured, when you sign up for one of these dating sites, you will see a number of stunningly attractive women.
Should you decide to sign up for the online dating sites I recommend below, be sure to read member profiles carefully as you might come across a lot of fake profiles. A woman who has only one picture posted, is wearing a tight bikini and making an overly suggestive pose are usually clear signals to steer clear.

Far more important is his aspiration to earn money and his ability to spend it wisely," Kalen says.
In other words, Russian women eye up future prospects, not the amount of cash in his wallet.
