Dating Survey: the age difference in Russian/Ukrainian-Western relationships
Today I found on www.russianmeetingplace.com another interesting dating survey, namely: What is the age difference between a Western man and his lady Russia or Ukraine. The moderators of the forum wanted to poll the posters here to see what the most common age difference was between Western men and the Russian or Ukrainian woman/women they are involved with. 312 men participated in this dating survey.
The “age difference” issue is very controversial. On one hand, many Western men ask themselves what age difference in Russian/Ukrainian-Western relationships is perfect. On the other hand, older men want to find a Ukrainian or Russian woman who are much younger than they are (and I understand why: this energy, this young beauty….). I can say you from my personal experience that Ukrainian and Russian women feel more comfortable with older men (10- 15 years older) as a rule.
Well, I am sure it is rather interesting to see the results.
Here are the results of the dating survey “What is the age difference between you and your lady/ladies”:
Let us analyze the results of the survey more detailed. The majority of respondents (90 men or 28,85%) selected “she is 11-15 years younger than I am”. Frankly, this result hasn’t surprised me. It is a known fact that most of the Western men seeking FSU women for marriage are looking for ladies much younger than they are. 80 men (25,64%) said that their woman from Ukraine or Russia is more than 16 years younger than they are.
69 men (22,12%) selected “She is 6-10 years younger than I am.” 50 men (16,03%) have marriages with a 1-5 year age difference. Only 10 men (3,21%) are the same age as their FSU ladies are.
I was really glad that 13 men (4,17%) selected “My Ukrainian/Russian woman is older than I am”. My partner is two years younger than I am. And as for me, it is a perfect age difference in our Ukrainian-German relationship. 🙂
For your information: I wrote two articles about the age difference in Ukrainian-Western relationships on my blog:
In conclusion I would like to say that the age difference between a Western man and a Ukrainian woman is an individual issue. Everyone must know what makes him happy. I am sure that the relationship with a 10 or 20 year age gap can work excellently! If people from different cultures love each other and understand without words – why cannot they be happy together?
But there are a few important points in relationships with a significant age difference you should consider:
- Different energy levels
- Different philosophical and spiritual ideas in life
- Different levels of life experience
- Different ideas for family planning
This means that if you do not want to have any more children fo your own, you will get a big problem with a younger Ukrainian woman. You know that the majority of younger women from Ukraine and Russia are very family-oriented and want to have children. Please think about all these things before you decide to marry a woman much younger than you are.
Be happy! 🙂
