The Argentina Football Association has apologized for distributing a World Cup manual with a chapter solely dedicated to teaching its athletes how to pick up Russian women, as Russia is the host country of the event this year.
The manual was handed out Tuesday morning to players, coaches, reporters headed to Russia next month for the World Cup during a course called “Russian Language and Culture.”
Here are a few tidbits of the chapter titled: WHAT DO DO TO HAVE A CHANCE WITH A RUSSIAN GIRL.
Translation via Deadspin:
1. Russian girls like any other girls pay close attention if you’re clean, you smell good and if you go well-dressed.
2. Russian girls do not like to feel like objects. Many men, because the Russian women are beautiful, only want to take them to bed. Maybe they want it too, but they are people who want to feel important and unique. The advice is to treat the women who is in front of you with their own ideas and wishes. Pay attention to their values and personality. Don’t ask stupid questions about sex. For the Russians, sex is very private and not a topic to discuss in public. (Maybe you do not believe me, but I know that it is.)
3. Russian girls hate boring men.
4. Don’t be negative.
The women avoid people that only see the negative things, in the work, in relationships, in life.
5. Do not ask the typical questions, be original, usually they like to know about you, so give them some information about you. Remember many of the girls will not know about your country, so you have an advantage over Russian men, you are new and different. Give her confidence in you.
6. Russian women like the men that take the initiative, if you do not have confidence in the same, then you will need to practice talking with more women.
7. Normally they do not like you to have a monopoly on the conversation. I see that problem in men who are very selfish or sometimes with men who get nervous talking to a pretty girl. In both cases it is necessary that you change your attitude, but for nervous guys, relax, it is only a girl, nothing more.
8. Do not try to impress the girl in the wrong way. Maybe you try to impress her by talking about the money you have, that you know everything, that you are perfect and the others are poor stupid people. In the end, if the girl has a little sense, she will bounce you. Be real and talk about you in real terms, talk about your faults in a fun way and about your positive points.
Normally Russian women pay attention to important things, but of course you will find girls who only pay attention to material things, in the money, if you are handsome, you tell me. Do not worry, there are many beautiful women in Russia and not all are good for you. Be selective.
The AFA released a statement expressing its “most sincere apologies” for the sophomoric tutorial.
