A few essential tips before visiting Ukraine for the first time

Dear Krystyna,

Thank you for providing this site and your insite. I have been writing to a lady in Sabastopol(sp)Ukraine for about two weeks. I used Anastasia dating site, wow, did they take me to the cleaners! Through Olga, I finally found out that if you send a “gift” like flowers, you then can attach your email site. This will cost about $250. I also spent about $400 writing to Ukraine women.

Now I have one woman to focus on. She does not write as sweet and dreamy notes like the ones when we are on the dating site.


  1. Should I focus on one woman? I’m very loyal.
  2. Will I be safe in Ukraine?
  3. I am a gentleman. What should I do/not do IF we get together?
  4. Do you know of any other free or less costly sites? Maybe I could put an old fashion add in the paper. Haha
  5. Are there any cities that are easier to fly into?
  6. And lastly, do you live in Ukraine? 

By the way, I’m 5’11” so not too short, but I am about 40 pounds over weight. A true american. I work out almost daily. I guess the fiftys have caught up with me.

Dear Tommy,

I will try to answer your questions in detail.

Question 1: Should I focus on one woman? I’m very loyal.

Think about the word ‘choice.’ It is so important to both men and women, and that’s what online dating conveniently provides–choice. When it comes to Russian and Ukrainian women and dating online, the question begs. Do I focus on one Ukrainian woman or several women?

That is not an easy answer, but we’ve all heard of ‘keeping our options open.‘ The basic concept of online dating is the search for compatibility. So it would be wise to tell a Russian and Ukrainian woman you have met through an Internet dating service that you are taking your time and interested in a real human connection before jumping into exclusivity. Honesty is the best policy in the world of International online dating.

Compatibility is not simple to find immediately, but when you first meet a Russian and Ukrainian woman in person, you will know in a few minutes whether you could enjoy being together. Compatibility means well-matched, well-suited, companionable and harmonious. There is also physical attraction and that is major.

When you are communicating through a dating or marriage service, especially when chatting to someone from another country, it is hard enough to see if you would be compatible. Even with a web camera, you can’t actually touch the person, can you?

What happens if you finally meet her and see that she doesn’t live up to your expectations, or has an annoying habit like picking her nose? It could happen, and you would only learn that upon meeting each other face to face.

That is why deciding to meet several Ukrainian women is the best way to go in the amazing option of online dating. As long as you remain honest, and keep your wonderful options open, you will be certain to find ‘the one.’ There are so many incredible fish in the sea. Why not look around and see what happens! 😉

Question 2: Will I be safe in Ukraine?

Yes, you are. As for me, this is a myth that Ukraine is an unsafe country, and that the crime rate is very high. The truth is crime is found everywhere, and the incidents within the Ukraine are at the same level as countries such as the United States, Germany, Canada and many other Western countries that are considered to be safe places to travel, visit and live. If you are careful, nothing will happen in Ukraine.


Question 2: I am a gentleman. What should I do/not do IF we get together?

  • be yourself
  • be a gentleman (as you write, you are already :))
  • be patient

This question is very general. You find more tips and advice how to win the heart of a Ukrainian woman in following ebooks:

Question 4: Do you know of any other free or less costly sites?

Professional International dating sites are pretty costly. Therefore, it is important to use a dating site which allows to get a direct contact with a woman so that you could develop your communication via sms, Skype or Messenger. Besides, if the woman is willing to communicate with you off the dating site, it is a good sign that she has serious intentions to get known you better.

Some sites like CharmingDate.com or HotRussianBrides.com do not allow you a direct contact with women until your meeting in person. And it is said on the Internet that the girls are paid for chatting and communicating with men so that they buy more and more credits. So as you see, direct contact is important to not be scammed by professional pro-daters and suspicious dating sites.

I do not know a big dating site where there would be no scammers. I know that every big dating site has positive and negative reviews, it is important to find a dating site with rather positive image than negative. The biggest adventure of dating sites is that they have a variety of services to assist Western males including telephone translations, video chat-rooms, online gift ideas and introduction help. These services can be more expensive, but they offer many more options. The biggest disadventure is a great number of scammers on such sites.

There are free alternatives, like the dating social networks. I would like to recommend you to use free dating sites:

  1. http://www.freepersonals.ru
  2. http://fdating.com
  3. http://www.russianfreedating.com
  4. mamba.ru

  3. http://ukrainiandatingblog.com/2013/03/mambaru-review-western-mens-point-view/

Question 5: Are there any cities that are easier to fly into?

It is not easy to answer. From what city? I think it is the easiest way to fly to Kiev directly.
It is possible to fly to Kharkov, Odessa or Lviv but I am not sure if you can fly to these cities directly or not.

Question 6: And lastly, do you live in Ukraine?

I am from Ukraine (Kiev) but I have been living in Germany for more than 10 years.

I hope, my answers help you to find a Ukrainian woman for life 🙂
