It kind of made sense after I had heard all the wild stories about the Trini carnival and how people let loose and do all sorts of scandalous things on the streets.

The way we dress ourselves is an important form of self-expression, and we take that self-expression very seriously.

If you’ve won over the hearts of your Russian lady love and her family, they will probably love you forever, vigorously worry about you like it's a competitive sport, and feed you until you definitely need to loosen your belt.

The thing that our Russian-ness makes us all have in common?

However we personally like to have fun, and personally like to entertain, we're amazing at it. Not to be vain or anything (OK, maybe a little bit), but clothes are a pretty integral part of who we are.

(OK, I'm being faux-cocky here for effect, but honestly, looking at it now, most of what I wrote is true.

I would just never actually say those things out loud and mean them because that's one thing Russian girls are not: overly braggy, annoying people.) Russian women get a bad reputation for the whole "mail order bride" business, but I'm here to shatter that misguided notion (sorry not sorry): Most Russian girls don't actually sell themselves to American men for money.

It doesnt matter is she is single or not, everything goes during carnival.

I also heard of married women going out to clubs and whining on men while their husband is out with his girlfriend on the side. 64Disclaimer: Every Nairaland member is solely responsible for anything that he/she posts or uploads on Nairaland.
