Thunder, Olegnay has nothing to worry about with the Yanks when we have idiots like Playdarussy, or Blu Craze or whatever the hell this goofballs name is this week. It just goes to show you, Idiots surpass thousands of years of cultural evolution in one hundred words or less.
Playdarussy you're about as much a Southener as John Kerry. I wouldn't say I was a Southener too much Dem' good Ol' boys in Bama are still looking for something to string up and in their laws stringing up an idiot is not a crime. Just some advice from a true born in the south American.
I have to agree to a degree with the whole change bit Play so bluntly put forward. When you move to a new country or even a new town you will have to change. But this in this context adds huge uncertainty to the relationship equation. You can't live anywhere for any length of time and not become assimilated. You just have to hope that the qualities you fell for in your lady are true representations who she really is. The person you met in Russia will not be the same person you will be living with here. They will hopefully be similar but they will not be the same. We are all the product of our environment. And play/blu, your original post did have some signs of resentment.
I agree about the age difference , Im young myself and even today I met a Russian girl working at a restaurant and will go on are first date tomarrow. Younger people are drawn into peer pressure than other cultures. And if you look at my home land you will find that a most of the older people my grandparents included, is that they actually miss communism, but it is the younger generation that changed wants to see change. When they come here they see what they are fighting for and they change...but when they do they are what is refered to as Americanization. And for this blu thing< who and what the hell is that all about? Blu craze?????????? someone elaberate on this for me.
