One of the legacies of the Soviet Union was am emphasis on things that were here and now. Asceticism and denial with religion was out, competition in the market was out but competition and asceticism in sports were in. One of the few ways you could distinguish yourself in Soviet times was exemplary physical achievements. After the fall of communism funding of sports declined as a percentage of the budget, but the interest continued. People did not channel their drive for self actualization into sports to bring honor to the country but because of a passion for it. It is no secret Russians love to use their bodies.
Flexible Eastern European gymnasts and bouncy tennis players are often the subject of male bonding sneering humor or Seinfeld subplots. Yet the reality is where in America the average female dress size is 14, I would say in Russia it is a size 4. Russian women know the value of a condition and toned lean body. They know that if they look good they can attract a better quality male for mating. It is that simple. While Western women feel conflicted about body image and their struggle for liberation, Russian gals do not. They do not have any false pretenses. I have lived and traveled the CIS, I know what I am talking about.
- Generally Russian girls look attractive and do not mind using this, as it is a reward for a healthy lifestyle, much like a Western business woman does her resume. It is a different culture and attitude towards body image. In the CIS women feel ashamed if they are out of shape. In the USA it is even a sign of liberation from conventional attitudes.
I have seen few Russian girls look anything but exotic and slim, with a mix of Asiatic and European genes. I can recommend them for dating not because of their athletic bodies but because of the whole person. Whether you are talking about a simple girl from the village or a world-class Russian athlete they all have an underlying high-mindedness in a good way, in my observation.
Why are Russian girls more athletic and in better shape than American girls? I do not know if it is the natural diet or the closeness to the countryside but when I went to Russia I saw scores of beautiful athletic Russian girls. They had a rustic natural look. In the States many girls go to the gym and spend a lot of cash on their looks. In Russia the look is more a thin strong look naturally.
- Russian girls eat about 500 fewer calories a day. This makes a big difference. Muscle tone is more a function of diet than anything else as with low body fat your muscles come out.
- Russian girls walk and bike everywhere. American women use a car for their legs.
- Diet is less processed in Russia.
What does a Russian girls body look like? The typical Russian body is tall, and thin with muscles without going to the gym. I can only think its their lifestyle or weather than does not allow them to become unhealthy. I think also they are more balanced mentally than American girls and are less prone to extreme of diet. Russian girls just live.
- American girls have actually decreased in average height as the diet has gone down. In contrast Russian girls have increased. Russian girls are about 1 inch taller on average and about 20 lbs lighter, depending on which age group you look at. However, if you look at the 21 to 35-year-old dating bracket then this is a good approximation.
- Russian girls long leg and are skinny girls.
American girls are more into sports, Russian girls are more into activities, like walking and swimming in a lake. I use to be into sports, now more into biking and being at the beach. I guess I like the Russian way. I lived in Eastern Europe for ten years. However, it is very trendy in Russian for women to do yoga. American women are about sports fashions, but hitting classic restaurants like Cracker Barrel and Cheesecake Factory, whilst Slavic females are into hiking all day in a pine forest with only some pieces of bread and cheese to eat.
Some Russian women start with an athletic body but age poorly, why? The curious thing, while Russian girls naturally has a good start in life, often times when they are in their 40s they let themselves go. Not all, but Russian women who do not develop a natural routine of fitness. They try to rest on their laurels. In these exceptional cases American girls look better when they are older (yoga, Pilates, vegan women). However, it’s all about life style, if they smoke and take care etc. If you meet a lady from Russia make sure her life habits are congruent with healthy living.
Another pet theory I have is it Mother Russia is a northern country. I believe the ozone is thinner and people may not get as much vitamin D but also are exposed to more unhealthy radiation. I have seen universally the faces of Northern women not age as well as people living in latitudes closer to the equator. Further is a Russian moves to say Florida I do not observe this accelerated aging. It is just a theory nothing confirmed by science.
Where to meet athletic beautiful Russian women for dating in the real world?
If you want one of these hot bodies, I would consider some of the websites I recommend in my posts for free Russian dating or simply a Russian or Ukrainian dating site. I prefer the free ones. On my website I detail a number and you can ask me questions where to find them if you do not know where to start. I recommend this website to start love.mail.ru or mamba.ru.
Let me know if this works for you. You might not meet Anna Kournikova or Pole vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva or Maria Verchenova the Golfer or the flexible Anna Bessonova, but you might meet someone brainy and high-minded and filled with virtue and similar in ideals as chess wonder and model Alexandra Kosteniuk. There are many talented girls in Russia and they might not all be olympic calabar athletes but make up for it in other ways, such as brains and virtue.
