Russian and Ukraine brides: the age gap issue

Dear friends,

The age gap is one of the most discussed topics in the Russian and Ukrainian dating world. Age-discordant crosscultural relationships can be tough, top that with a Ukrainian/Russian-Western couple and it’s going to be a long and bumpy ride. Having a relationship with a Russian or Ukrainian lady and with a rather elaborate age gap is not the easiest thing in the world. But somehow, many Werstern men seem to be very comfortable with such circumstances, in fact they even like it that way.

krystyna bloggerHello,

I am Krystyna, a Ukrainian and Russian dating blogger.

The “age difference” issue is very controversial. I have experienced most Western men prefer to date Ukrainian and Russian women younger than them. But at the same time, these men ask themselves if such a Russian-Western relationship with a big age gap can work for a long period of time? I’m getting many mails from my readers asking me: “I’m 50, my Russian girl is 25. Can this relationship work?”.

What is the perfect age difference in a relationship with a Russian or Ukrainian woman? Do age and cultural differences really matter, or should love just overcome all? Let’s talk about this today!

In my opinion, age gap may be a point for problems in a relationship with women from Russia and Ukraine. Definitely, crosscultural age-gap relationships are nothing but hard. I can say you that Ukrainian and Russian women feel more comfortable with older men (10- 15 years older) as a rule.

In my experience, Western men enjoy being with a younger woman. On the other hand, a relationship is much more than just fun and games. Is it possible for a 50 year old man to have a successful relationship with a 25 year old woman of Ukraine and Russia? Yes, it is.

But there are three important points in relationships with a significant age difference you should consider:

  1. Different vitality levels
  2. Different levels of life experience
  3. Different ideas for family planning (e.g. you do not wish kids anymore, it can be a big problem for your young wife because Russian and Ukrainian women are very family-oriented)

In conclusion I would like to say that the age difference between a Western man and a Ukrainian and Russian woman is an individual issue. Everyone must know what makes him happy. 🙂

    Dear Krystyna,

    On your article dating/marrying a young Ukrainian woman, I was just sitting down to write my question and concern to you hoping you could hp me figure this out.

    You see, I am an American man who is 59. I am pretty open minded on a lot of issues, but conservative as well when it comes to traditional family values.

    I hardly ever get a woman of my age or even ten to fifteen years younger to send letter. But when it come to the ages of eighteen thru thirty-three, they are trying to knock down the door!!! This may sound a bit funny but it’s true.

    I did meet a twenty-five year old that completely crushed my heart. After seven months I’m still trying to get over that.

    However, for the most part I find these young women to be very intelligent and grown up.

    I have found myself once again talking very closely to two ladies, age twenty-three. I don’t think I’m a gluten for punishment, because they both are outstanding women and they have approached me wanting a relationship.

    I think it’s safe to say that I should tread very carefully. But that is easier said than done. I like them both but ultimately, someone is going to be written off.

    What is your opinion regarding this dilemma I find myself in? I cannot get that hurt again.

    Thanks for your blog and videos. They are both very entertaining and informative. Please keep them coming!!

    Hi krystyna….I do have a love story but is still ongoing….I am 57 and was communicating with a beautiful lady from uman ukraine for 8 months thru a website called alone angels ….I then decided to go to ukraine to meet this beautiful lady. She could speak very little english and i spoke very little russian. On my long flight to ukraine, I often thought if she was real and would be at the airport when i arrived. She was there and so beautiful. I enjoyed the time with her very much but she was 27 and i was 56.

    I was hopeing that it would work out for us but found myself likeing our translater alot more than i liked who i had traveled so far to see.I did go to dinner with my translater as irina had to work.I found out that i was happier with nadia, our translater because she was 38 and spoke english very well. I stayed there for two weeks and had a wonderful time.I loved the culture,food and all the beautiful women.

    I have been talking to nadia for over a year since i was there and plan on going back to ukraine this spring to see nadia and her two wonderful daughters. Nadia and i seemed to hit it off when i was there and hope that my dream of a ukrainian women will be fulfilled as i think that ukrainian and russian women are the most beautiful women in the world.

      Hi James,

      it is really very nice to hear that you have found a serious and honest woman from Ukraine. I hope that everything will be going good. My advice to you is just learn more about the culture and traditions of Ukraine. So you can understand the needs and wishes of the woman and so you can deal with intercultural differences smarter. Your woman should do the same!

      Best of luck and love!

    Estimated Krystina: his blog is very interesting. I him mention that for several years I am inscribed in one of these agencies and really the results amaze me. I have answered few letters of almost 2000 received, between ladies of Ukraine and Russia. I him inform that I am 65 years old and comment to him only on 2 cases of many that I have stored:

    1-Year 2014: Receipt of the lady 37 letters and I answered only 7.-in no case it requested money. Searching in Inter-net. I found her in VK. Com – in Instagram with photos of his marriage in July, 2014, while it was receiving his letters, is more in his profile resides in Zhitomir and actually it is in S. Petersburg. It is called me the attention that still today his profile continues in the above mentioned site and with a recent photo effected by.
    2-I receive letter Enero/2015 of Tamara M. woman divorced with 1 son – In his profile mentions 26 years when actually it has 46. I located it in VK – it mentions that it possesses a small business when in dozens of photos of his album VK – brilliant enclosed professional observes it as one in limousines.

    3-Of the tour for the different Agencies the more common thing that is observed is that the same company has many agencies with different names but the ladies with the same one GO. They appear in all and when it is convenient for them the range of the men changes classic examples: In some 25 to 65 in other 25 And inexplicable girls of 20 requesting 45-even 65. Only it is a trade ¡!!!!! Atte. Horace
