St’Valentine’s Day is relatively new to Russia and is still not as important as other, traditional holidays.But it is a good opportunity to talk about dating in Russia.
Historically in Russian families, women were expected to serve their men, take care of the children, and perform all household chores.
For this reason, casual dating is a lot less common in Russia.
Very often, you will see two young people on a date wearing a dress and a suit instead of jeans and t-shirts.
Make sure that you give odd number of flowers, since even number is for funerals only.
Also, try to avoid yellow flowers – they are a symbol of separation or break-up.
