I could tell this was a very bad idea, so I gently prodded her to move along. It was no big deal, and outside of the perfume shit, I had a good time. She responded again (after five minutes) saying that she was “almost ready” and would be right down in a “few minutes.” I really considered driving away, but I waited.
100% of my experience is with Russian women living in the West.
On that second date, before we went into a fancy bar, we took a quick walk around an adjacent mall. “It’s my birthday next week,” she said, again nodding at the perfume. Several times more, she kept trying to get me to buy this 0 bottle of perfume. We had only met one time before, and we had never had sex or anything else like that.
At the Nordstrom’s store, she stopped and started trying various perfumes. Finally, she realized I wasn’t going to buy her the damn thing, so she relented, and we went to the bar. In the car, while dropping her off back at her place, she got very sexual but didn’t get to sex (she refused to go to my place and refused to let me into her place).
Note that most of these were many years ago, so if you have any critiques on my game or my actions, just remember that.
Russian Girl 1: I was once on a first date with a Russian girl and we were more or less hitting it off.
