This is not life, this is Second Life, one in which our Moscow avatars can date seedy gangsters (yes, I plead guilty), drink ’til we’re sick night after night (yes, guilty) and then weep our Russian souls out at the transience of it all (also guilty).That is perhaps why Deidre chose to write a “fictionalised” account of it all on the internet; as someone who has set three novels in Moscow, I am dubious about anybody who claims, as Deidre Dare has done, that their work is fictional, especially when it features a heroine of roughly the same age, background and behavioural patterns of the author.
It is accepted that prostitutes and vodka will be included. Somebody phoned me up only last week and said: “Remember Dima?Emma, a 28-year-old lawyer, went to Moscow on a six-month tenure, attracted, she said, by “the offer of an adventure”.She was keen to escape what she describes as “the claustrophobia” of London and the small professional world she lived in. “There was a sense that you could get away with bad behaviour in Moscow.No-one whose opinion you really cared about would ever find out,” she explains.This feeling that one is invisible in a city so far divorced from normal life is ubiquitous among expats.For whatever the allure of a chaotic and brutal city that fosters a feeling of nothing to lose, the expats usually do shuffle home to recover, their livers depleted, their emotional lives in tatters, their memories blurry and their fingers hovering over control/alt/delete.
While many foreigners initially find dating in the Netherlands daunting or inaccessible, understanding Dutch personality traits and mentality can help reduce miscommunicating the ‘flirting' signals as practised by Dutch women and Dutch men.A friend of mine who worked at an American law firm in Moscow ended up begging to be sent back to New York this summer because he couldn’t take the drinking and clubbing any more.Clients expected to be taken out to nightclubs full of barely dressed, striking Russian girls, some of whom were prostitutes, some just out for a good time, all doing shots from the hip holsters of the vodka girls in bikinis and stilettos (no, really) and snorting cocaine in the loos.The Dutch tend to believe it is better to be honest than mislead someone.To the untrained dater it may appear rude or direct but it is a refreshing scene of playing with your cards on the table.It is usually Western men, not women, who spend their evenings watching women dancing in cages and buying drinks for the uncaged ones at the bar.
