It has been a couple of weeks that I’ve arrived in my new home in St Petersburg. I’m lucky because I work in Tech/IT in Product and Project Management and since the past decade, experienced professional at in demand globally. So I got offer a job here and accepted it. As a daygamer, how could I not accept a job in Russia and live there?! haha
I’ve been mainly focusing on work so far as I am in a 3-month probation period and I need to secure it if I wanna stay. I’ve approached 36 girls so far, 35 of them in the central mall, Galeria and 1 in a subway station. It’s winter and freezing and foggy.
I’ve gotten 6 contacts (3 numbers and 3 instagram). 5 of them flaked, either not replying to the first message or dropped off after a couple of messages.
I got 1 date with a low 7. It was my first number close and just came back from the Date 2. Back to her but unfortunately no lay*. She was more a high 7 tonight (dolled up and sexy dress). A Date 3 should be on, and it’s not like I have dates lining up (yet!).
My impression so far is that girls are stunning, feminine mentally and physically, on par with Kiev with more variety and twice as big (5M people) but less English. I even have trouble not being distracted at work! And again, I work in IT! I can’t even imagine, how it would be like as a guy to work in a PR agency here.
For the people who complain that girls’ English in Kiev is bad, it’s worse in St Peterburg. You get Tartar and Central Asia girls as well, and from the business like women to the artist’s type. The hottest girl I’ve approached here so far was a Turkmen girl.
There are plenty of date venues to choose from and as an Asian, J-Pop/K-Pop looking guy, I’ve gotten more IOIs than in the Western world so to speak.
Life in general, it’s challenging without knowing at least some basic Russian. So I’m also planning to learn seriously Russian. Not for game but just to get my daily life here easier. So that next time I order a sausage I get a pork one and not a lamp one.
*I’ll try to make time to write a date report for this one.
