Ukrainian dating Interview with Michael Mordinson (Part 1)
Many of my readers ask me tons of questions about dating and marriage agencies in Ukraine, namely which agency is reliable and provides the best service, whether the profiles of women are real and not a fake, etc. Therefore, I decided to ask Michael Mordinson, one of the founders of Mordinson marriage agency in Kharkov/Ukraine, to do an interview with Ukrainian Dating Blog. Luckily for us, he accepted.
Krystyna: Hello, Michael! Thank you so much that you’ve found time for us to give an interview and tell about your rich experience with Ukrainian dating and your success with your matchmaking agency.
There is huge number of different online dating services and marriage agencies in Ukraine. And it is not always easy for Western men and Ukrainian women to decide which agency is suitable for them. What makes Mordinson marriage agency so special? What do you offer what other agencies cannot offer their customers?
Michael: First of all I would like to thank you for this opportunity to share few things about the Mordinson marriage agency and answer some of the questions which are interesting for the readers of your blog!
You asked me what makes Mordinson special. There are lots of things which make our agency special and different from hundreds of other agencies out there. I will mention 9 main things that make Mordinson stand out of the crowd:
Exclusive Women – Since 1999 we have been investing in our own advertising campaign in Kharkov which attracts young and attractive Ukrainian women who are interested in serious relationship and are open to an idea of moving abroad. We do not buy profiles of the ladies and we do not share them with any other agencies. All the services that we provide to the ladiess are free of charge for them, that has been our policy since the very first day of our work that no lady ever has to pay anything at all!
We meet and interview every lady in person – we are a local agency and all the women in the Mordinson agency are from Kharkov, we do not have any on-line forms which lady can fill out to become a member, only after a personal interview at our office in Kharkov a lady can become a member of the agency. So we actually meet every lady who is listed in our gallery and when we talk to the ladies we make sure that they are interested in finding a husband and are open to the possibility of moving abroad if they meet the right man.
Up-to-date high quality photos – we are also different from any other marriage agency in Ukraine because we own a professional photo studio and therefore can guarantee that the pictures men see in our gallery are of highest quality. We want our male clients to have an opportunity to see fresh and up to date pictures of the ladies, we never alter the ladies’ look and post high definition pictures which are very detailed and well lit.
Free introduction – we are offering our clients to send introduction letters to any number of ladies from the gallery absolutely free of charge! We believe that men have to have an opportunity to find out which ladies are interested and which are not before they have to pay anything!
True letters – all the letters are translated manually within maximum 36 hours after the letter is received (normally the letters are translate and sent out on the same day when we receive them). As you probably know there is a big issue with certain dishonest agencies which write letters instead of the ladies and then when a man comes to Ukraine, the lady who he has been talking to for months doesn’t know a thing about him! It never happens in Mordinson, all the letters are written by the ladies. Only if the lady is interested she will be communicating with a man. Of course it’s important to write an interesting introduction letter and attach a few nice pictures to make a good first impression on the ladies!
All the women live in just one city – another aspect of our work where I believe we are very different from our competitors is the approach to arranging the personal meetings with the ladies. Because all the ladies from the Mordinson live in one city our clients can meet all the women they are interested in without having to travel from one Ukrainian city to another.
We offer our clients Introduction Service packages which include pick up at the Kharkov airport or train station, accommodation in one of the Mordinson owned apartments http://www.mordinson.com/cgi-bin/app.pl, interpreter’s service and most importantly meeting all the ladies who are interesting for the man.
There are no limitations on how many ladies a man can meet. The initial meetings are usually quite short, hour and a half on average, this way a man can meet all the ladies who he is interested in during first couple of days and then concentrate on the lady (ladies) who he had best mutual chemistry with. We only arrange individual meetings, this means that there is a man and a woman at the meeting and an interpreter if required, this is a comfortable arrangement for the couple to really have a good conversation and see if they want to continue getting to know each other.
Only available women in the gallery – as soon as the lady becomes unavailable we delete her profile and pictures from the gallery, this only takes a few minutes and doesn’t require any additional payments.
Personal attention to every client – as you know we aren’t a large agency, we only have about 200 profiles of the ladies but every client we have is treated with maximum attention and care. I believe that this attention to the clients plus the experience we’ve gained since 1999 are major things which make us stand out from the crowd of other agencies.
No hidden costs – all the services we offer have fixed prices. It means that there are no hidden costs. With Mordinson you know exactly and in advance what will be a cost of every service you might require.
