Ooookay. I apologize for the length of this. If I'm in the wrong thread feel free to move this. So I've been teaching myself a little Russian for some reason. There's this store near where I live that is apparently all Russian-owned now. And I went there today to test out my Russian. Lo and behold, it's all Russian GIRLS. Insanely, beyond all human comprehension HOT Russian and Ukrainian girls. I about came walking in the door. So I decided to grow a pair and talk to these two girls asking them how long it would take to get some dumb shirt sprayed or whatever (this store is a tourist trap). I make an ass out of myself, but one girl tells me I should come back the next day. I, however, being an idiot (or possibly a whore), don't learn my lesson and go upstairs to talk to the girl who is probably the hottest in the joint. God only knows what I was thinking. So I asked her where something was and just slipped in "thank you" in Russian and then she seemed genuinely interested. So I talk to her, bought what I was actually looking for (a small backpack for day hiking) and was halfway out the door when I went back and talked to her. I ask her when she's free and she had a strange response to it and started asking me at about school. Apparently she's already graduated from the University I go (I'm 19) and she looks to be about 21-27 (hard to tell). I persist slightly and she gives me her phone number. So, I walk out of the store with a backpack an insanely hot Ukrainian girl's number. I figure the age difference might come back to haunt me, as one of the girls downstairs looked a little closer to my age. But whatever. I'm an anthropology major and I'm kind of obsessed with different culture's norms and I'm not really sure what is the norm with them. I noticed they were all incredibly stoic. I've been using my good friend Google but I noticed that sevenstring.org is an international community and decided to ask you kind people for assistance. So! If anyone has any advice or any knowledge of Ukrainian or other such cultural norms or any general advice other than being confident and well-bathed I would greatly appreciate it.
