Sometimes differences in culture and language play real tricks on us. I remember working for an American guy at a Russian ladies social 2006. Charles was extremely short - a little over 5 feet. Short would definitely be no problem if ...if he did not have one obsession: he was looking for a really tall Russian lady, and not necessarily a slim one (slim ladies can easily break he joked). "It is my weak point. I like tall women. "

"Do you mind meeting a short guy, like me?" he would ask every lady approached at the Russian ladies socials. "Of course I do not" was usually the answer. And the ladies would smile at him the way only Russian ladies can. Russian ladies are very friendly and polite. They will never try to offend or humiliate you, never give you a dirty look, even if they are not interested. But still Charles could feel some shyness in their eyes concerning his height. And then he saw Lena, she was sitting quietly by the window. Long natural blond hair and big blue eyes.
She was probably too big for him. Not heavy, but not slim either, about 5'8'' tall. But he did not care. He felt chemistry towards her immediately. But what about her? "Yes, my ex-husband was a big tall guy but so what? Where is he now? I nearly had a heart attack when a young woman came to my place of work and confessed her love affair with my husband. Now he does not care for his daughter, like most Russian men after divorce." There is a famous Russian song that goes: "Why, why do you girls love handsome men? Their love is temporary and brings sufferings to you." And this American seemed to be so nice. His eyes were so kind and his smile so promising. And besides he seemed to adore children. She had a picture in her mind: All three of them, her daughter and this man, sitting by the fire-place on a cold winter day, doing something fun.
