Ideally,The advice would be to refrain from romantic entanglements until you get your bearing.
You need to focus very well to be able to excel..A relationship at this very early phase may derail you because in terms of any plans now you’ll start thinking ‘we’ instead of I and start compromising in terms of things that would benefit you if you were alone.
Even common argument,you won’t be able to read or concentrate.
You are quite young now and you need to buckle down and make your mark..this is your chance.
I appreciate that you are lonely and the weather is cold ,try and network with other responsible Nigerians / immigrants/ people with exposure who will show you the way and how best to make use of this opportunity.
A lady you pick now you are still fresh off the boat may not be the lady you would pick like 1 year down the line when you are absolutely self aware and settled because by then you would also be considering that you would want a partner who shares common goals with you,has a career ,you would also know the peculiarities of the culture that you’ve just landed in then also get to meet more people.
However, this may be fate I don’t know..I wish you the best and will look out for your pictures.
The outfit you gave her is lovely good luck

Happy New Year everyone! May God grant all your heart desires this Year.
I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year celebration? Mine was pretty good.
On the morning of New Year's ever, I attended Holy Mass at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Moscow.
It is one of the only 3 Catholic Churches here in Moscow. I met a few Nigerians and most importantly, I spent the day in the presence of the Almighty God.
When I was living in Lagos, I wasn't really active in Church and I can count the number of times I went to Church in the last fewyears. But since I arrived in Moscow, I've decided to draw closer to God.
I don't know if this just happens to me, but whenever I attend the Holy Mass. I feel so at peace and so fulfilled, like been in the presence of God makes me feel, I'm ready to tackle anything or handle anything life throws at me. I always feel a great sense of Peace and completeness, whenever I attend the Holy Mass.
About my New Year.
I had a minor quarrel with my gf on the 30th of Dec, she has been complaining I don't have time for her because I've been busy with the app, and website I'm building.
I keep apologizing but on the 30th she visited my dorm and we had a heated argument because I told her that right now work and my school are my priority,
I told her even though I love her, right now, the stuff I'm working on is more important to me than anything. She misunderstood what I said and we argued for over 30 mins. Which was basically me sitting in my bed while she ranted.
This was the first time we would engage in such a heated argument, I was calm all through but I was seriously considering breaking up because I really do not need any form of drama in my life right now.
After 30 mins, I apologized, hugged her, and told her everything will be all right. I told her I understood how she felt, and I will try my best to make out more time for her.
The bad thing I think I told her during the argument was that, she was been dramatic and she should start acting her age instead of acting like a silly over pampered baby. She told me those words really hurt her and I apologized again. And we settled our fight.
Dating a woman from another country and culture isn't as easy as it appears, it's true she does not ask me for anything and isn't materialistic. She just wants my time and attention, but I feel time and attention in itself is a price too.
On the 31st, she told me to come to her house by 11pm, I was in my dorm with no idea how to spend the new year because her parents were back and that means I can't sleep in her house till they travel again.
I came to her house and she told me to come upstairs, I asked if her parents were around she said yes and I was like ‘wtf? I'm going home, I don't want your dad to shoot me.’ She told me not to worry that they want me to join them for New Year.
It was cold that night but I was sweating like Ewu Gambia, I didn't know what to expect and I just did sign of the cross and followed her upstairs.
Her father is 2 times my size, and he has really huge biceps and chest. I was so nervous when I met him.
They invited me to the dinner table and we all started talking and waiting for 12:00 the parents told me they made this dinner specially for me and wanted me to not feel lonely since my family is thousands of miles away in Nigeria.
Her parents are very wonderful and nice, I think the noticed I was nervous and tried there best to make me feel comfortable.
We talked about life in Russia, Sports, weather, life in Nigeria, football, gym, music etc
They gave me papers t write my new year wishes, and we all did and exactly 12:00 they burnt the paper and poured the ashes nside the wine and we all drank the wine and ashes.
I think it's some Russian tradition. Then the parents kissed and of course me and B too lol .
We all went to the balcony to watch the fireworks and later B told me of a really nice bar she wants to take me to.
We left their house around 2am and went to the bar/club and danced and drank into the New Year. I only drink occasionally and that night was the first time I got drunk in a very long time.
We danced and danced, I gave them a mixture of Atilogwu, Ogene, shoki, shaku shaku, alanta, azonto etc lmao everyone was just watching and clapping as I was dancing on the floor. I even had a dance off at some point with one Russian guy. The whole bar circled and was clapping for us as we had a dance off lol
We met another couple in the bar, a Russian guy and his gf, and we danced together and all. I was bonding with the guy while my gf and his gf were getting along too. The couple invited us to a Sauna and indoor pool place. The guy paid and told us to order anything we want.
When we got the Sauna place we all changed into the towels and the guy's gf literary shouted 'wow, look at your figure' in Russian of course lol. Lol I have small 6 pacs sha and I work out so that was why she said I have a nice body. My gf just jokingly told the girl 'He is mine' lol. we all joked and had a good time.
Later the guy started asking me, how long I've been working out and if I can give him workout tips which I was of course happy to.
It was a magical night and it was the best new year of my life so far.
We left the sauna house around 9am all drunk and wasted and I took her home and handed her over to her mom then I went back to my dormitory.
It was a really memorable and unforgettable new year for me. I slept for like 7 hours and woke up to a text from my Ex gf in Nigeria telling me that my closest/best friend while I was in Naija, asked her out. 'He apparently said he wants to have a private time with her etc lol and she was reporting it to me lol'
I told her to do what's best for her, and whatever decision she's takes is fine as long as it’s what she truly wants. I told her I know she’s a smart and wise girl who knows what's best for her.
I told her I really do not care who she dates or decides to have a se-xual relationship with because I have more important things to think about and I don't have time to know who is doing my ex lol. She's apparently pissed off with my response and wants me to stop her and tell her not to date anyone smh. Oyo lo wa lol.
Spending New Year with B's parents was such a beautiful moment and words enough cannot describe how amazing it was.
I really don't know how far our relationship will go but one thing I know is, I really like her but if for any reason, the relationship ends. I will forever cherish the good times and beautiful moments and memories we created. Meeting B has been the best thing that happened to me in Moscow and I really want this to continue for as long as possible.
One more thing, B later told me she was jealous the way Sauna guy's gf was talking with me. I hugged he tightly and told her not to worry that it meant nothing, that my heart belongs to her and no woman will take her place because she's special to me.
Below are pictures of B’s parents.
First picture, me and B's parents. 2nd picture, me, B and her parents.

I will be lying to you if I told you that you won't encounter racism or other form of discrimination in Russia.
But the truth is that it's mostly on the ground of ignorance, communication gap and disregard for the laws and culture of the land by migrants.
Racism mostly occur in environments where migrants and even indigenes arrogantly or ignorantly refuse to assimilate into the culture of the host.
Black Americans are largely discriminated against after years of being in the country because they've refused to collapse of their cultures into the American national lifestyle. Even White southerners are mostly being discriminated against for this same reason.
Most Asians have a terrible case of isolating themselves in their own home, how much more in a foreign country. Americans may tolerate these but a typical European who grew up with the teachings of jante's law will not take this attitude, hence the discrimination. I've been opportuned to live in the same environment with North Koreans, bro, you can play football, table tennis and do other things with them for 1year without them saying hello to you. That's an extreme case sha.
Most Africans have a terrible case of lying, cutting corners, being loud and trying to outsmart the system. And an European will not take this, hence the discrimination.
Europeans have their own issues, but we are talking about how they perceive migrants.
That being said, if you are honest and at the top of your game (as a student or worker), you will attract friends and will hardly be discriminated against.
Characteristics of a typical Russian guy is no different from that of President Putin. Stern looking, unfriendly and hardly apologetic. He attacks you first if your movement suggests you may attack him. I think there's a subject in primary school that teaches them these. But they are very kind, friendly and willing to help if their interest is not threatened. Communication/language solves this for the most part.
Their ladies have similar attitude. Very resilient, unapologetic, honest and unafraid. They apply these in everything they do. Even in relationships. That's why when a Russian lady decides to go out with you, be sure to get a great deal of loyalty and attention. They go all the way.
Aside from my mom and my Russian ex, I've never met any girl who was unnecessarily forgiving, kept my secrets and could go a whole ten yards for me. They make bonny and Clyde look unserious. That's why they make the most loyal spies to walk the earth.
Problem they are having with these migrants is that the migrants tend to abandon them for prettier and more financially stable girls. Worst so, the migrants leave unceremoniously after graduation.
Less I forget, both their young men and women can drink for the world in a galaxy competition. Funny thing is they hardly get drunk, especially their girls. That's why I always laugh so hard when I see British and american girls fall over and begin to do stupid things after taking half pint of light beer. Lol.
Like someone rightly advised, thread softly in the department of love because the beautiful and rich once may just be on their way. No even try Siberia. Cos na there you go know say supermodels like Kate Moss and Sofia no even fine as models.
All in all, have fun. Good and bad peoplepeople are abound in every corner of the earth.
