This was extremely tiring because sometimes I just want to wear a v-neck and jeans and hit the bar for a couple drinks.
Foreigners are not especially prized and when you add in the high drink prices, which suggest that clubs are only frequented by the upper middle class, you’ll be spending a lot of time and money to in all likelihood just get a number of a slightly snobby 7 who’s not really hurting to meet men.
It doesn’t help that there is no one-night stand culture where you’ll get a freebie bang every few nights out.
Moscow was just as expensive to me as Washington DC, and by the end of my stay in Moscow, I couldn’t wait to leave for the sole reason of giving relief to my wallet from Earl Grey teas in cafes.
Face control is where bouncers eye you up and down to see if you have the right look to enter the club. The problem with this is that it’s hard to make a plan to be in a particular venue because you may be denied entry and have no backup. Ironically, both times were when I was with a girl (she was pretty to me, but maybe not to the bouncers).
When I was alone or with another guy, I was not denied entry, but I was suited up each time.
In other words, to go out in Moscow I had to dress up whether I liked it or not to decrease the chance of being face controlled.Polish women, while definitely not as pretty, are easier to get into bed and more easygoing.If Russia was priced the same as Ukraine or Poland, I believe that Russia would be the best choice, but we can’t exclude cost from the equation.Ukrainian girls have more restrained personalities upon first meeting, but when they open up, they are similar to Russian girls.Ukrainian girls will dig into my background to see if I’m a Turkish sex tourist, but most Russian girls I met didn’t do this.You will know within 15 seconds if she doesn’t mind your look or not.
