A Reader’s Enlightening Trip to Ukraine
Reader “D” from the Midwest writes in to share his story:
Thanks for all your e-mails and interesting perspectives. As an “older” guy, as you like to call us, 52, I recently started looking abroad versus dealing with American women after 26 years of marriage. I found your information useful since dating at any age has similarities, and having been out of the dating scene for almost 30 years meant I had to learn new things: online dating, personal style, attitude etc.
After dealing with the negativity of so many American women, I knew I needed something different. So after reading much of what you have written I started to check out Ukraine. My first trip was a disaster for many reasons including airlines, credit card challenges, and a totally unknown culture and language. Last but not least was making huge mistakes by just going to meet one woman. I left feeling betrayed, raped, and with blue balls. It was a great life lesson and story. Looking back on it now, it was the best thing I could have done.
After that experience, I bought some books and other resources and started online chatting with several women. I put the plan into action, and visited Ukraine a second time in May. To call this experience a culture shock is an understatement.
Walking the streets of Odessa was mind blowing, and elevated my spirits like never before.
I felt alive again, and could not believe the differences between the negative, whining, spoiled women in America, compared to the elegant, feminine, and warm personalities of the Ukrainian women. You may think me an idiot, but one of the women truly captivated me so I am visiting her again in a few weeks. You are probably thinking I should date more, and bang more women, but I was, and still am, a fan of marriage and long term relationships. There is nothing quite like sharing your life with someone.
Now to my point.
Your dating advice is valuable regardless of age. The greater lessons of taking charge, making them want you, letting them know you add value to them, and leading with confidence are critical to all men not just the young. I just had to recover what I had known in the past. One woman I talked to said the most attractive trait of a real man is confidence. So, the lessons you learned at a young age have helped me refocus and rededicate myself after having been beaten down slowly over 30 years. I wanted to let you know how I appreciate you and the messages you have conveyed.
We here at Ukraine Living don’t have anything more to add to that.
Other than that travel is truly life-changing, if done correctly.
It has all the ability to make all the difference.
So, if you’re truly ready to see what you’re missing out on by not dating in Ukraine…
