I’m a 21 year old student from Kazan, Russia.
Well, as you might know, Russia is a traditional patriarchal country, which personally I like. Here a guy/man is supposed to ask a girl/woman out for the first date and he is supposed to pay for her on the first date.
Many boyfriends tend to behave jealously. I don’t like it, but many girls/women put up with it, though it depends, of course. Not everyone is jealous/compliant that much.

Hi Sandra, i just found your blog and am thrilled. I’m around the same age as you and have never even kissed anyone, let alone been in a relationship…It’s comforting to know that I am not the only one; you have some very interesting reflections and links that you have shared. Thank you, keep it up!
Thank you for commenting! You’re exactly the sort of person I hope finds this blog and it’s encouraging to hear that it’s helpful!
