Our tips regarding arrangement of the meeting with your Russian lady.
First of all, we would highly recommend you to go and meet Russian woman in her own country. If you send her money to come and visit you then there is high risk that you will be used by scammers who will take money and disappear. No matter how beautiful or appealing Russian woman is – do not send money! If for some reasons you cannot travel you can help her not sending money directly to her, for example, buying tickets for her, paying for hotel, or compensating her half of her expenses when she comes to you and you see her in real, but do not send money for the people whom you know from internet. Never! Make it your principle and follow it!
Second advice – go and stay in hotel (or an apartment). If it is just a first meeting with a woman then we would not advise you to stay in her apartment. Maybe you will not like her or she will not like you, and your staying in her apartment just will make things worse. If you stay in the hotel you will be more independent in your decisions.
Regarding your passport we can give you the same advice as we give to women – everything can happen, you can lose your passport for example somewhere, so better do some copies of your passport and keep it apart from your passport.
Of course, you should bring some souvenir for your woman, it should not be necessarily something expensive and with diamonds. Let it be something simple from your country, but it should be carefully chosen with attention to her interests and it will show your care about her, that you not just went to have a good time with her or without her, but that you planned to meet exactly her, thought also about her and her interests before going. If she has children then you should bring something for her children also (toys, sweets, books, etc)
