Only a simpleton--or a blind person--would not recognize that I am a woman. I look feminine by virtue of the shape of my body and face, even if I am wearing jeans and my hair in a ponytail. Which I am, because I just came back from grocery shopping for several hours. I'm not wearing high heels because that would be stupid. But I still look feminine.
As I can see modesty is your middle name, isn't it?

I believe you have a wrong comprehension of what 'feminine' is. Being born woman doesn't make you beautiful and feminine by default. You know it's a hard work to look beautiful and feminine. Sneakers and sweatpants are not the best way to look attractive.

Gee, what a man/woman can do in a grocery store for several hours? Do you have a family of ten kids?

That's cool.

I bet it's an effort for them but they are ready to sacrifice comfort in order to look attractive. You have to suffer for the beauty.

No way. She is dressed very cool. You know there's an old-fashioned word called 'fashion'. Have you heard of it?

You made my day as your posting is quite ignorant. It's like that naive posting about hookers.
For your own information, the ratio is about one to one when it comes to man/woman ratio (of childbearing age) now.

However, I believe it's easier to find a good wife in Russia than in America, yet it has nothing to do with the man/woman ratio. Russia is not that feminist country like the States so there are tons of women who desperately crave for the marriage in their twenties.

48,864,763 men for 53,048,315 women, ages 15-64.
I guess the stats say from 18 till 50 would suit this discussion more. In this case I guess it would be about 50 percent for 50percent.

The worst part of it is some American women just use it as a politically correct excuse so they can look fat, unattractive without a pang wearing sweatpants and sneakers 24/7. Cool. Very cool.

This is true, and what's more, while an American "10" will almost always run only on her looks, a Russian "12" probably has at the very least a college degree, likely has a fairly serious job, and can cook, frequently they are more "chef" than "cook".

It's also true that particularly in summer, Russian ladies dress pretty provacatively - if you saw an "Amerikanka" wearing such an outfit, yeah, she's probably "in the trade" - but it's just a cultural difference.

My Russian female roommate thinks this is the most hilarious thing she has ever read and would like to know what movies you are watching.
