Are you ruining your Ukrainian dating adventure before it starts?

Dear friends,

If you’re reading this, it means you are interested in a dating adventure with a Ukrainian or Russian woman. I hope that you do not know what means to start off with so much excitement and high expectations but to feel disappointed after a short while.

Sadly, many men soon become pessimistic and give up on online dating because they have no success with it. I’m here to tell you there is no reason to be discouraged.

Finding the right Ukrainian or Russian bride for you online will not happen overnight and will not be easy but it will be certainly be worth the effort you put into it (I told about that in my video “Be patient! Ukrainian dating is not easy”). I know that you Western men have many different reasons for wanting to begin a Ukrainian or Russian dating adventure.

Don’t let a little bit of a challenge get you down. I have found that the men who get discouraged tend to have a few things in common. Avoiding these things can prevent you from sabotaging your search for the right Ukrainian or Russian woman for marriage.

Unrealistic Expectations:

Don’t begin Ukrainian online dating believing that you can avoid putting some effort into your romantic pursuits because you are online. You need to make the effort to appear attractive but not desperate just like in the real world. Don’t go online thinking the women there will not care what you look like, post and unflattering photo of yourself and propose marriage to the first person who responds.

Put your best foot forward, have a decent photo taken that flatters you but is not deceptive. Show the women who respond that you are interested in them and willing to put some time getting to know them.

A few tips for you:

  • Be willing to be interested in the things they are interested in so you have something in common to discuss.
  • Be patient.
  • Don’t expect romance to develop overnight.


A lot of Western men I know who have decided to try Ukrainian dating online, sabotage themselves by trying to be a scam detector. Most men are terrified of looking like a fool so instead of expending mental energy into learning about Ukrainian and Russian culture or getting better at online chat, they become experts at reading between the lines and finding red flags indicating that the Ukrainian woman they are chatting with is just looking for money or trying to scam them.

Relax!!! 😉

Ukrainian and Russian women have many reasons for opting to date internationally. Not every woman from Ukraine and Russia is a con-artist. My tip: Learn how to avoid becoming a scam victim in my free Ukrainian dating guide “Avoiding scams”.

If you think that you can just hop online and order a Ukrainian and Russian bride to be delivered in 4-6 weeks, you are going to be discouraged in a hurry. You need to learn about Russian/ Ukrainian history, language and culture to have some success.

A sure way to appeal to a variety of women is to be genuinely interested in them. Ask questions about them, what they like to do, what are their hopes and dreams, ask about their family background, education, work, and hobbies.

Being cheap:

You cannot pursue Ukrainian dating without spending some money. Constantly complaining that everything costs too much is a sure way to shoot your dating adventure in the foot.

Expect to spend some money. There are fees for the dating services, travel to Ukraine and Russia, and if things go well you may have to support your new bride in getting her papers to come to your country.

Expect to pay around $10,000-15,000 to make your dream come true.

You find more information on approximate average cost of Ukrainian and Russian adventure in the following articles:

Go for it:

Of course flirting is always fun, but don’t go overboard right away. You’ve been dreaming of meeting the Ukrainian / Russian girl of your dreams.

It’s not supposed to be easy; it’s supposed to be a Ukrainian dating adventure!

Don’t wimp out!!!! 🙂

You need to go for it. You’ll never regret it (at least, I hope so :)).
