Introduction to Ukrainian Women

Heck, do Ukrainian girls really need an introduction? They’re some of the most infamous girls in the world. Their stunning beauty, feminine qualities, and the mail order bride business has led to every sane man being innately curious about the women of Ukraine.

If you’re coming from the dating world of Western countries, you’ll be in shock and awe at how different it is in Ukraine. And it’s a good thing.

However, the most shocking thing you’ll probably see will happen when you’re just walking down the street. The streets of cities like Kiev and Odessa will be full of stunning women walking around in beautiful sundresses and high heels. At least during the summer—winter is another story.

Rest assured, it will be unlike anything you ever have seen in a Western country. Think of high school prom level of style, elegance and effort. And all of this happens every single day right on the streets.

Undoubtedly, your head may will be on a swivel for the first couple of days.

As far as the local flavors, there’s quite the range. I don’t think I’ve ever seen as many redheads as I have in Ukraine. At the same time, there’s plenty of blondes, brunettes, and jet-blacked hair girls to go around. The majority of them are thin—you won’t find the curves that you would find in places like South America.

With that being said, everyone should be able to find whatever physical preference they have in Ukraine.

Dating Culture

The dating culture in Ukraine is also vastly different than in the West. Once you start meeting some Ukrainian women, you’re in for some surprises—both good and bad.

Let’s start with the good—the women of Ukraine are of the highest quality. You can expect them to put great effort into their appearance, attitude, and relationship with you. They bring 100% to the table.

Now, for the bad. Ukraine is a “cold” culture. The reality is that it isn’t necessarily cold, but it’s just not as “fake” as many cultures in the Western world. Yes, I’m looking at you America.

It will take some time to get used to. Girls that you date in Ukraine aren’t going to spill their life story on the first date. In fact, it may even take a month or more to get a girl to really start opening up to you. It can be a difficult obstacle to overcome when you’re first acclimating to Ukrainian culture, but with a little bit of “practice” you’ll begin to get the hang of it.

Ukrainian women do not hate their own men (there are other countries in Eastern Europe that do have that stigma). There are some cases where the girls in Ukraine only date other local men.

However, these are few and far between. The vast majority of Ukrainian girls are at least open to the idea of dating a foreign fella.

Is There Any Casual Dating?

Might as well get this out of the way now—no, not much.

There is not a lot of “casual, hookup sex” culture going on in Ukraine. It’s still a society that (thankfully) values longer term relationships with some substance behind them. Certainly, “casual dating” isn’t out of the question. Not every Ukrainian girl wants to get married and have babies TOMORROW.

It’s most important to know that there is not a “one night stand” culture. In the Western world, that’s about all it is these days. People meet the same night and go home for some frolicking in the sheets.

This is not the case in Ukraine.

Of course there are always exceptions to this, but generally speaking it’s best to keep this in mind. Failure to do so will likely result in you losing out on more opportunities than you could ever gain. Just remember this, because it’ll be referenced several more times throughout this article.

Where to Meet Ukrainian Women

In modern dating, there seems to be three “usual” acceptable ways of meeting people.

Needless to say, the kind of social environments that locals might use to meet their partners isn’t really available for those of us who travel to Ukraine. More than likely, you won’t have the ability to meet a Ukrainian woman through a work function or family event.

As a result, you’re left with three options: meet them at night (bars/clubs), meet them during the day (coffee shop/street), or meet them via Ukrainian online dating websites.

Meeting At Night

The club and bar scene is going to vary wildly in between Ukrainian cities.

For example, Kiev tends to be pretty dead as far as nightlife goes. It picks up a bit on the weekend days, but contrast it to a place like Kharkiv which has a spot to go to every night. Odessa has a Las Vegas-esque environment for two months a year, but falls off after that.

If you plan to go out to the drinking scene as a way to meet women, you should do further research on the individual cities and see which ones fit your style best. It would be horrible to get all the way to Ukraine only to learn that the city you chose has nothing to do at night.

Assuming you pick a nightlife city, here are general rules to follow when chatting up the Ukrainian girls:

It’s going to be difficult to hear.

Keep in mind that the English levels aren’t the strongest in Ukraine; you should definitely consider the option to learn Russian online before arriving. Add in bar/club music with low levels of English ad you have a recipe for disaster.

If you don’t speak Russian…

…at least learn a little bit so you can greet her in Russian. This will at least “lower the guard” a bit, so to speak. English speaking tourists are a dime a dozen in many parts of Ukraine.

If you don’t bother to learn a few basic phrases, she’s going to lump you in with all of the horny and drunk Turkish tourists who are known very commonly as sex tourists.

Just being able to say a dozen words (not even phrases!) puts you miles ahead of most of the men who travel to Ukraine to meet Ukrainian women.

Is Russian hard to learn? Not terribly so, but it does take time.

(You can get a free trial of Rocket Russian, which is excellent, by clicking here.)

Prepare for long nights.

This isn’t the United States with it’s last call at 1:30am, with closing time being 2:00am. Ukrainian people tend to go out late, stay out late, and have a hell of a time during the whole process.

Dress the part.

Too many tourists go on holiday (not just in Ukraine) and they dress like complete and utter slobs. Don’t be that guy.

Of course, you can go the suit route, but the more casual route of a blazer and jeans works well, too.

Typically, I wear something like this pair of nice jeans (dark), with this blazer. I usually pair these with a nice pair of dress shoes or a boot-dress shoe hybrid.

For the final piece of the puzzle—put a nice watch on. I do have a high-end watch, and several more “middle” ground ones. All of them get complimented…every time I go out. Don’t fret if you don’t have the right brand of watch on your wrist, but do make sure it looks good.

This is the high-end watch I have—though I wouldn’t wear it anywhere but the really high end Ukrainian clubs. This watch looks phenomenal and yes—has the “brand backing”. It goes with any of my clothes.

I’ve then got this one as an alternative. I also have a skeleton watch, and finally…

This watch gets me compliments every time I go out, without fail. It’s incredibly unique and everyone wants to talk about it.

Again, here isn’t a lot of “same night” action.

Remember what I said in the Dating Culture section?

Ukraine is not a place where a girl is going to meet you the same night and end up in your bed, straight from the club. It just simply doesn’t happen. And if you push too hard for this, it’s very unlikely she’ll come out to meet you for a date—whereas she would have before.

Gentleman’s rule applies to this.

You can definitely try to kiss, dance, and have some fun with her if you meet her that night. But if you push too hard to “make it happen”, it probably won’t. If it doesn’t work out, you might lose any and all chance with her. Permanently.

In the majority of cases, it’s better to just get her phone number, give her a kiss goodbye, and set up a date in the future.

Meeting During the Day

Believe it or not, Ukrainian women expect to be approached on the street. It’s a somewhat normal thing in their culture for men to simply pursue women they are interested in by striking up a conversation on the street.

If you decide to take this route, it’s worth noting that the summer months tend to skew things in a multitude of ways. You’ll have more men out there, but also more women. This may or may not work for you.

The best advice is this:

If she fancies you, she’ll stop and have a conversation.

It’s really that simple. It’s important not to get too into your head because you see one other guy approaching girls on the street. Or if you get rejected once or twice.

If she likes it, great! Have a brief conversation with her and swap numbers. In all likelihood, she’ll text you back and you can set up a date. For more information on that, keep reading this guide.

Online Dating in Ukraine

Okay, now this is important—you must do some online dating before you head to Ukraine. Even if you’re not technically or simply have no interest in online dating.

You don’t want to put all your eggs in one basket. Are you really going to fly around the world and not have anything going for you? NO.

If anything, doing some online dating gives you a chance to meet some cool girls—worst case scenario is maybe you make a friend who can help you translate. Best case scenario obviously is that you end up on a date(s) with a great Ukrainian girl(s).

You’ve got your choices as far as online dating resources in Ukraine, so…

Online Dating Ukraine—What Sites Are Best?

There are two major players in the Ukraine online dating market—Ukraine and Tinder.

Ukraine Date

A more comprehensive Ukraine Date Review is here and you can signup (for free) by clicking here.

Note: you can’t message girls without a premium membership—but it’s well worth it. The reception on Ukraine Date is fantastic. If you have good photos and a few words on your profile, close to 100% of the girls will message you right back.

Ukraine Date is a bargain. If you put the time in, you could probably even arrange for a girl to meet you at the airport and give you a hand with translating. Granted, this would probably take a week or two of correspondence before your trip.

The major difference between Ukraine Date and Tinder is that the girls on Ukraine Date aren’t wasting time. They tend to lean towards serious relationships, whereas Tinder is more likely to have the few and far between casual relationships that were discussed earlier in this article.

Simply put, the girls on Tinder are far more likely to waste your time—i.e. agree to a date and cancel, or simply not show up. The girls on Ukraine Date are truly interested in meeting a man, and best of all—a Western guy. Use this to your advantage.

Ukraine Date Quick Start Guide

  • Sign up for the website about two weeks before your trip.
  • Send out messages to the girls–it can be as simple as, “Hello, do you speak English? :)”
  • She will probably respond with something simple, just a yes and a smiley face.
  • From there, you can just say that you are looking forward to your trip to Ukraine, and ask if she has Whatsapp or Viber (the two most common ways of messaging in Ukraine). Facebook is another alternative.
  • She’ll give you her number 9 times out of 10.
  • Text her right away on the app, and keep in touch every other day until you leave. Send her pictures of your day to day life, share some things about herself. Have her teach you a few words in Russian.
  • Set up plans to meet her a few days before you arrive. Many first dates in Ukraine can be something as simple as taking a walk in the park and grabbing a coffee.
  • Enjoy the date!

Again, I want to stress—you don’t need any “pickup lines” or gimmicks to get girls on dates from Ukraine Date. Coming from the Western world, it’s easy to try to do “too much” to impress a girl.

Simply put, you don’t need to do that with Ukrainian girls. You are already in a position where she sees you as a prize (in most cases). Just be a normal, cool, guy and you will do just fine on Ukraine Date.

Tinder in Ukraine

Now, admittedly Tinder is a little bit of a different animal.

You can safely assume that most girls who are on Tinder in Ukraine are slightly “Westernized”. This means that they have an interest in the culture, and are more likely to have less of the “traditional” Ukrainian girl attitude.

They tend to be a bit more sexually liberated, though certainly nowhere near girls in America or the U.K. (or even Poland for that matter).

There are infinite resources on Tinder out there in the world, so we won’t go into too much detail on it. However, the same rules still apply—you don’t need to try too hard (but you will need to try harder than you do on Ukraine Date).

You will likely have to put up with more general games and bullshit with the Tinder girls. Ukraine Date’s fee—even though it’s incredibly reasonable—discourages many men from signing up. Whereas with Tinder, every guy in the world can set his location to Ukraine and talk to Ukrainian women.

If you put 2 + 2 together you’ll realize that girls are obviously more likely to play games if they have more options.

That wraps up where to meet Ukrainian women, as well online dating in Ukraine. Let’s move on to actually dating some Ukrainian women!

The Dating Process Debunked

The 1st Date

Let’s start simple—the first date.

Generally speaking, it’s best to take things at a slow pace. Again, there isn’t much of a hookup culture in Ukraine. The first date should be casual and fun—and nothing over the top!

If you met her at night or during the day, and have already met in person, you can bring flowers.

If you met her online, I’d probably discourage you from going the flowers routes. Plus, it would suck if you and her didn’t click and went your separate ways after 30 minutes!

So what should you do?

A simple coffee or drink is the best thing you can do. Many girls don’t actually drink, so coffee is a perfectly good alternative (you can always pick a cafe and have a beer yourself if you’re so inclined.)


I can’t stress this one enough.

A common thing Ukrainian women complain about in regards to their own men is the drinking. Don’t do your best Ukrainian man impression by ordering shots of vodka while on your first date. Stick to simple wines or beer if you choose to partake in drinking booze.

How long should the first date be?

Truthfully, it only needs to be an hour. Enough to establish whether you and her have chemistry or not. In fact, I’d say it’s better to cut it off somewhere around the 1-2 hour mark. Intrigue her and establish a connection—she’ll be dying to go out with you a second time.

The Kiss

Slavic women have this tendency to refuse to kiss you for a very long time. Whereas Latin cultures dictates that you make out within half an hour of meeting, Ukrainian culture goes at a much slower pace.

Yes, you can absolutely kiss a Ukrainian girl on the first date, however…you don’t have to.

And the first time you try, I will personally guarantee that she’s going to turn you down. It’s just part of the thing that many Eastern European women do.

It’s partially because she doesn’t want to feel “easy” and partially because she wants to see how much of a man you are. Are you the guy who gets nervous and jumpy when this happens? Do you take rejection personally?

Ukrainian women will eat you alive if so. Dating in Ukraine is not for the faint-hearted. This refusal of kiss #1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (I’ve tried up to 50 times on one date and finally got it) is just a massive screen to see if you’re a masculine guy.

If she rejects you, don’t let it get to you. Just keep trying—within reason. In the case of my 50 attempts, I knew she liked me. A lot. She was having fun with it. Unfortunately not all situations are black and white, so use your best judgment. Don’t try so many times you sense you’re turning her off.

The 2nd Date and…WALKS

You can do something a little more upscale for a second date—think drinks and tapas at a cool wine bar or something of the sort. Again, no need for extravagant dinners at this point in the game.

I know everyone reading this wants to learn how to seal the deal, but again—this is early. If she really likes you trying to go for it now won’t spook her off, but if she does turn you down it sets you back, so to speak.

If you’re too aggressive with trying to get her into your bed, she may be hesitant to hop into bed with you on the next date. It’s often a “3-date-rule” kind of culture in Ukraine, so it’s not surprising. If you’re too aggressive on date #2, you might end up waiting more around the 4-5 date range. You can rest assured if you go for the kill and fail on date #2, that she’ll be awfully on guard for date #3.

Now, this is probably the most important piece of advice I can give you about Ukrainian women.

They love to walk. 

It’s a thing. Some people go on walks for dates. If a Ukrainian girl asks you to go on a walk with her—do it! Even if it’s just for an hour or so in the afternoon and you don’t do anything else. It’s just a matter of putting in the face time to make her feel comfortable around you.

Go on every walk you possibly can during the courtship process. It will pay huge dividends.

No, the Questions Never End

You’re going to hear the same questions repeated on dates. If you go on dates with multiple girls, you’re going to hear the same questions. Know what’s coming and prepare your answers accordingly.

  • Why are you in Ukraine?
  • Why don’t you like America/London/Australia/wherever you’re from.
  • Are you a sex tourist?
  • What do you think of Ukrainian women?
  • Do you think Ukrainian girls are beautiful?
  • Why do you want a Ukranian girl?
  • Do you want a wife and kids?

Seriously, you’re going to get asked this on every date. And she’s never going to let up on the first date. Again, it’s another test—though this time it’s a self-defense mechanism.

What’s the best answers to these? It’s hard to say. Sarcasm doesn’t go over as well in Ukraine as it does in the Western world. If you’re too sarcastic you may piss her off. If you lie she’ll be able to see through it.

The best thing I’ve found is just to answer them as truthfully as possible without being explicit.

For example, why are you in Ukraine? Yeah, it’s probably true that you’re there partially because of the girls. But perhaps you have tourism aspirations or are merely interested in it. The best answer to this is:

Pretty girls and vodka 😉

The delivery is important. You don’t want to be a sarcastic ass, but she knows that is a real reason. At the same time, if you say it with a smile it’s genuine enough that she’ll let you off the hook.

Why don’t you like America/London/Australia/wherever you’re from?

People are fat and rude. (They’ll be amazed, seriously—there are hardly any fat people in Ukraine.)

What do you think of Ukrainian women?

They’re stunning! So much prettier than Western girls.

Do you want a wife and kids?

Yes, but with the right person and at the right time in my life.

Hopefully you get where I’m going with. You can answer relatively truthfully and satiate her need for answers without giving away the farm. You can’t blame her for protecting herself. She knows the stories about Western men and Ukrainian women, and of course the mail-order bride reputation that comes out of Odessa.

The Elephant In The Room: How Many Dates?

Yeah, it’s the question every man is curious—how many dates is typical until intimacy?

Three is a good rule of thumb, though obviously there are dozens of other variables that can come into play and impact this. I’m not an advocate of the mail-order bride system of porting her over to America before intimacy. That’s for desperate chumps.

Intimacy is a natural and desired thing amongst normal human beings. And while things don’t anywhere near as fast as they do in the Western world, Ukrainian women still have desires. Just take things at a good pace and usually they’ll happen.

Relationships With Ukrainian Girls

The great news is that once intimacy happen, things tend to open up a lot more. You’ll find the women of Ukraine willing to let you in to their hearts and start to share more about themselves. The previously “cold” Slavic culture will become more much warm towards you. It’s important to note that, that it still can take time. While Ukrainian girls will share far more about themselves after intimacy has occurred, it’s still common for it to take weeks or months before she fully trusts you.

The feminine qualities of these girls will really start to shine as you enter a relationship with them.


There will be no more of the silly “I can’t cook but I can make you a Lean Cuisine” stuff spewed out by Western girls. No, you’ll have your choice of your favorite Ukrainian dishes—whenever you’d like.

You can generally expect a Ukrainian girl to take care of you, as her man, with incredible passion and enthusiasm. Of course, the flip side of it is that you’re expected to uphold your duty as a man. This means footing the bill (for everything), making decisions, and generally just being a strong and masculine man.

If you don’t hold up your end of the bargain, you can rest assured it will (eventually) fall apart—though with a much longer leash for screwing up than you get with girls in the West.

Take a genuine interest in her traditions, foods, customs, and Ukraine as a whole. Your relationship is much more likely to blossom if you have a true interest in Ukraine, as opposed to viewing it as a cattle farm for hot girls. And as has been discussed ad nauseam on this website, Ukraine is truly a fascinating place.

Her Family

Many Ukrainian girls are very close with their families. It’s customary to meet new boyfriends or girlfriends after about six months of dating.

If you end up in a situation where you’re going to meet your Ukrainian girlfriend’s family, be prepared to drink and eat a lot.

Dad is going to want to get you drunk to see if you can drink like a man. Ditto for any brothers, uncles, cousins, etc. present.

Mom, Grandma, sisters, and aunts are going to try to shove more food in your face than you’ve eaten all month. Your plate will hardly be empty for a second before one of them is getting up to get you more food. Hell, you need it to combat all the alcohol that Dad is pouring down your throat…

The point is, it’s a reasonably big deal to introduce a new romantic interest. It’s a big celebration, and they show their affection with food and drink.

You should be worried if Dad isn’t doing shots of alcohol with you.

And yes, you should bring flowers for Mom and a bottle of booze for Dad. Gifts are 100% acceptable.

Ukrainian Women: Conclusion

While they can be difficult at times, Ukrainian women are 110% worth the effort. It’s rare to find the beauty, femininity, and overall elegance of Ukrainian women anywhere else in the world.

Don’t get me wrong, they’ll drive you crazy at times. You’ll get sick of answering the questions. You’ll grow tired of the tests. You’ll wonder if it’s worth it all. But then their beauty, both inner and outer, shines through. All of a sudden, all of the pain, heartache, and frustrations with Ukrainian women are absolutely worth it.

I’ve had amazing relationships with Ukrainian women, and I hope this article will help you to do the same.

Good Luck,

– UL

The endless tests and constant questions eventually give way to some of the most loyal and loving girls you will ever find. It really is something to have a girl look at you the way a sweet, feminine Ukrainian girl can. Even the most hardened players can find themselves melting, if only for a second, to the warm eyes of a Ukrainian. It is something every man should experience atleast once in their lives.

PS: This write up is dead on, great read!

    Yep, they just have some *look* in their eyes that radiates…energy? I don’t even know how to describe it that well. But Western girls aren’t even capable of giving you that look

Nice article! Quite comprehensive and I enjoyed reading it. Like you I have an interest in EE girls and even though I have no personal experience of dating them, it appears that they are better in many ways compared to western women.
Its interesting that you point out that the majority of Ukrainian women are interested in serious relationships rather than indulging in casual hookups. What do you think encourages them to reject the western style of casual sex?

It also seems like they bring much more to the relationship than western girls(who only seem to bring their physical aspects) such as their feminine qualities. What do you think encourages them to act feminine? Is it because they have to compete for a man’s commitment?

Personally I think the tendency for the girls there to be initially “cold” and not open up too quickly(both emotionally and physically) to men to be a good thing when you consider that western girls are perhaps a bit too “open” to too many men at once if you know what I mean. You said that once they trust you they tend to open up more. I think at this point of the relationship this “cold” attitude to strangers begins to work in your favor since there is less of a chance of her being “open” to other men behind you back. She is more likely to share her intimacy with you and you only as opposed to western girls who tend to share it equally among many men.

Regarding her family you said that her father wants you to drink with him. Do you think they will be offended if you refused, saying that you don’t drink? Perhaps you can say that only drink a little and just for this special occasion but not get drunk since you mentioned that Ukrainian girls criticism their men for drinking.
Does the families of Ukrainian girls(her father, aunts, grandmothers) like to “test” you(such as inquiring to see if you had girls before, amount of income, religious values etc)?

PS: Really good article. I learned a bit from it.


    I do not like such stupid articles about Ukraine and women at all. I was an administrater of marriage agency for 7 years, we had a lot of marriages. Behave naturally – then it will be easier for you to find a woman. All these dirty articles are created just to scary you and press to use the only site they advertise there< it is a shame on this site, not the best one – I can tell.

“What do you think encourages them to reject the western style of casual sex?”

More than anything it’s just the culture. “Follow-the-herd” mentality, if you will. If everyone is doing it, people pick up on it. Casual relations is not a trendy thing in the FSU (usually).

“What do you think encourages them to act feminine? Is it because they have to compete for a man’s commitment?”

Yeah. Lot of competition and beauty out there. They have to.

“Do you think they will be offended if you refused, saying that you don’t drink?”

Haha yeah, I’d say so. Best just to load up on the carbs and hope for the best. I doubt they would let you drink anything less than a half dozen drinks, depending on how much they drink. The girls understand in this case.

As far as tests, not really so far — but language barriers do apply.

Thoughts on Visiting Lviv, Ukraine

[…] Ukrainian girls are also stupidly easy to approach, far easier than Hungarian girls. On my first day in Lviv, I fired up Tinder while eating lunch and started swiping right. In less than five minutes, I immediately had three matches, a far better response rate than I’d seen anywhere else, and I ended up going on a date with one of them. Later that day, while touring the city, I just started going up to girls and talking to them. As an American wearing a suit, girls were curious as to why I was in their city, and they didn’t attempt to play stupid games or act cliquish. (I’ll write more about the girls later.) […]

Hi , my name is Mark , 56 years old , I have read your information about Ukraine women and find it pretty much accurate , I met a wonderful woman of 47 , lives in Odessa , from the Ukraine date RU site , I have been to Odessa twice , 8 days each , and just returned from a 5 day trip with her in Barcelona Spain , I think things are going pretty well , I have met her mom and childern and all seem to like me , there is no problem in the intimacy department , and I agree with you in regards with the monetary matters , in fact it is hard not want to help dew to the economics over there . I currently am working on getting her a visa to the USA . I constantly am learning about the cultural differences between Ukraine and USA women . My question to you is in regards to the cold nature of Ukraine women , do Ukraine women easily show or speak of feelings ? I often am concerned that the words I love you are few and far between , is this normal ? It is a subject that keeps me guessing , in USA women want to hear this all the time , I kind of get the feeling that in Ukraine this is not so , showing of public affection I notice is limited , such as long kisses , holding hands no problem , hugs , short kissing , standing close all ok , this normal ? Although everything behind closed doors is great if you get the drift . Any pointers in this area would be aprishiated . We video chat on viber daily , we have been what I would call exclusive to each other for about 11/2 years , it is my intent to bring to USA to be my wife , what are your thoughts ? Thanks

    Ukraine Living

    I wouldn’t bring her to the US.

    Making out in public is a no-no. Holding hands should be fine.

    Mitchel Jones

    Why are you waiting so long to bring her over?

    Kara malone

    We got this trait from there!!! Which I love!!! If you give them the traits they are looking for they are nice if not cold as ice!!!!

Generalizations are bad, mmkay?

I’m a Ukranian woman and I shudder at the ridiculous stereotyping in this article. Buy a real doll and let women alone.

    Ukraine Living

    I’ve got a Ukrainian girlfriend and she A+ approves this article.

      Almost local

      I also approve this article. Lived in Ukraine, I am from Eastern Europe so I don’t have cultural difference with them, but still find them unique in some ways! I would say the article is 95% true. Some notes: holding hands is not common, they grab the man’s folded hand (can’t describe it better…); they insist to pour tea or coffee to their man even in restaurant; it is not so uncommon to have sex at the first date, depends a lot on the situation and the persons involved; they are great lovers in bed; being polite and respectful is VERY important, and is important to show you are not turk (they are not popular there…).


You can’t generalize about all women in one article.

There is no instruction how to build relationships. Tanya is right. Be yourself. You can’t pretend too long. One of the most important things our women really appreciate is – honesty, courage, actios. Words are meaningless
If you really want relationship but not only sex use your own brain and do not look for advices in internet.

The article had some truths and some nonsense. I used Ukraine date and found the most beautiful, caring woman I’ve ever met. Yes, she was completely different than Western women (thank goodness) in almost every way. She ia 2 years younger than me , which is NOT the norm as many Western and Eastern men like the younger women. I flew to Ukraine to meet her 3 months after making contact on Ukraine date. I married her 1 year later. My life is great with her and I’m beyond lucky. Im my experience with her, words mean little…its the action behind the words. For me…she has changed my life!

I have been to ukraine I worked there, and had much fun there. Yes there are many ways to meet fine ladies. In big cities they have so many women -they actually do dress very sensually for summertime seasons where many men come to visit .
There is a large sex tourism business as many woman from countryside enter cities only to fine no work and end up whoring around. As well common for divorce and mothers support there families like this. Its the bad side that exists I witnessed it . As well dating sites for chat and messaging are fronts for an industry, if you happened to find a nice woman online in a dating site well God Blessed you.

There are hotels that are filled with ladies of the night.
Yet I do believe there are very nice woman available I have met them as well.

I’m curious to know what you think of the website victoria hearts.

    Ukraine Living

    Scam. Run away.


What about Victoria Brides ?


Great article! I met a beautiful woman on tagged of all sites and actually Skyped with her and met her in person last October in Kharkiv and wondered why she wouldn’t kiss me and seemed a bit cold at the end of our dates and you helped me to understand that it is cultural which is what I believed at the time having dated upper class central American women. Though in her emails and throughout our time together she was very warm and loving just when it seemed she might spend the night with me it was nyet tonight yet we’re still in touch and hopefully she will come visit me in the US soon. She is definitely worth being patient for and in a way I did appreciate that part of her character.

    Ukraine Living

    Highly suggest you actually sleep together before you fly her to the US.


From what I researched, to marry an Ukrainian woman and get her back to your home country, you may have to pay Ukrainian government about 300,000 dollars as a national tax because they don’t want to give out their girls easily to other guys from other countries, who are treated as one of their national resources. Is that really true according to what you know????? If that is real, I will be ashamed of their country leaders.

    Ukraine Living

    Never heard of this.


You guys are such creeps. I’m sick of people treating Ukraine like some kind of p#*$y Disneyland.

Met a nice Ukrainian woman about a month ago. Been dating her since and have been to kiev with her.

This article is spot on. everything is accurate.


haha…this is sad. I guess the writer is not that much of a man. He needs a watch to hook up girls.
I’v been everywhere in the east and when you go in to a club, you’ve got attention. I’m only 1.98 but the men there are so small, that all the girls are curious for you.
You don’t need a watch or a blazer or something like that. Just be a real man and act normal.
No problem to need nice girls


well…I’m just back from Kiev and now I know for sure that your article is rubbisch.
Just be your self, go to a club and you pick up a women just like in other countries.
No need for a blazer, no need for a watch, just be a nice guy.

And yes…they want to kiss immediately, and yes, when you are lucky they will come with you, or you can come with them for a one night stand.

It’s just like everywhere…not only man love sex…woman enjoy it just as much.

Great city, great country, a lot of nice buildings and other stuff…and great horny girls 🙂


I heard Ukrainian women don’t shave. is that true? and if so, why???

First thing first, I appreciate you preparing such a long and educative article. Why do I consider it educative? Because I studied Finance in Kharkiv, Ukraine between 2012-2016 and I have been living in NYC after I got my bachelor’s degree. Here I wanna share my experience about dating girls from both cities:
I completely agree with you mentioning that Ukrainian girls generally don’t do hookups like girls in NYC do. Gold diggers are everywhere but I think there are more in NYC. I also believe that girls in NYC are willing to cheat on you more than their Ukrainian fellows. Ukrainian girls are also more educated and read more books than girls in NYC. Here, all I have seen girls doing was social stuff. But in Ukraine, I was able to talk about literature more.
So, as a single person, I will try to marry with an Ukrainian girl in my 30s. I am 24.
