Today I will tell you about some of the important features and aspects of the social life of the Ukrainians. In my opinion, every Western man who is currently looking for Ukrainian wife should know them in order to understand better our culture and our society. As you know, knowing these aspects will help to quickly establish effective communication with your Ukrainian darling and build a healthy relationship with her. 🙂
So, what are the most important aspects of the Ukrainian social life? The Ukrainians consider social life an important aspect of every day living and fulfillment throughout one’s life. Although the towns are small, people are very interested in gathering together to spend time chatting and socializing. This usually is done at a home setting, where comfortable conversations take place while sipping on tea.
In Ukraine, many people consider a “friend” apart of family. Therefor, they treat them with great respect and offer them anything. They are known for their sincere hospitality as well. You will typically find tea and sweets during a conversation, and the family will do their best to make you feel like you’re at home.
Because the home is the most important place for many small town Ukrainians, many diner parties are held. These can include BBQ’S or fancy gatherings, however, they are always expected to provide a lot of food. Guests typically bring gifts, food or flowers when coming over. Kisses on the cheek are often common among friends when first greeting your guest. During dinner parties, toasts are also very crucial. The first toast of the night is typically given by the host, and they wish for great health to everyone around the table.
The Ukrainians love to chat away and spend the night socializing, but also do love to dance and celebrate together by drinking. Depending on the household and religious affiliation, some people like to decorate the home and play games together to create unity. Although their are many cafes and restaurants around Ukraine, most people like to stay at home with their friends and be in a close environment that they love.
It is very common in the Ukrainian culture for people to leave a social event or dinner party with something in hand. The Ukrainians love to gift food and other gifts to their friends and family, and are never greedy. They always remain true to each other and do whatever in order to help out. Children are also very scalable, always interacting with each other.
The Ukrainian social life is like many others expect it is typically done in the home and friends are considered like family. Socialization makes Ukraine the country it is, proud and lively.
