Dear friends,

I am pretty sure that you have heard a lot of things about VKontakte.ru (VK.com) and are wondering if it is possible to use this social network for looking a Ukrainian or Russian mail order bride.

If you have never heard about VK.com, you should know that VK is the largest Russian (rather FUS) social network with more than a 100 million active users. This site is not like a traditional dating site but offers a great chance to meet a special lady for life (of course, completely for free).

What is VK.com?

Before we discuss tips how to use VKontakte.ru for looking for a match from Ukraine, I would like to explain some essential things about this site.a

VK.com is not a dating site

That means not every woman registered on this site has intentions to find a Western man and move to another country. Thus you need really tons of time to find a Ukrainian woman who is willing to start a communication with a foreigner and is not against cross-cultural relationships.

Consequently, the “no reply” rate is really very high

But do not despair!!!  If you show endurance and patience, you will surely find your destiny there.

Language barriers may be another huge disadvantage of using Vkontakte.ru

Not every girl on VK can speak a foreign language. Furthermore, not every girl on VK can speak English, although this language is a lingua franca over the world. Not every girl on VK wants to communicate in a foreign language although she can speak it.

Despite of these huge disadvantages, I am sure that this is really thinkable to meet a gorgeous Ukrainian woman for life on VK.com.

4 things to remember:

Be aware of scammers at VK.com

Surely, you know this awful feeling, namely: your communication with a Ukrainian woman on a dating site is going perfect but you have still doubts because in your opinion, everything is too perfect and you are scared to get scammed.

You can find this woman on VK.com and write to her a greeting message how you are happy to find her there. If the woman does not respond you and claims that she does not know you, your doubts were not in vain.

Don’t forget being careful! From my personal experience, I can say you that there are no professional dating scammers like on International dating sites; nonetheless, this statement does not mean that you will not become a victim of fraud.

VK.com experience

In conclusion, DarkMatter tells about his VKontakte.ru experience:

Hi all!  

I decided to try VKontakte.ru a few days ago. It looks exactly like facebook, however, one of the things I noticed some people actually post porn pictures.   Facebook does not allow that. I practically copy and pasted my information from facebook onto this website.

I joined all the *English Speaking* groups to see if I can actually meet some people, and whats funny is I got some people from various parts of the FSU, heck even Africa wanting to talk to me. I put them on my friends list and the fun began.

I had one girl named Darya from Серпухов start talking to me. She started asking me questions on my background and other aspects on my life. We started corresponding for the last couple days, and she asks me if she wanted to speak to me on skype.  

I agree, and this past morning I spoke to her on skype for over an hour telling me her dreams and what she wants to do in life, and I also tell her mine as well. What’s funny is she would say cute phrases like, “Is my English ok Joshua?” or “Yes yes Joshua I understand that very well.” or “Can you understand my accent?”   One thing I notice she seems really mature, and well informed.

She tells me she has read various books from Gone with the Wind, Great Gatsby, etc. I had to redirect the topic at certain times because I had no answer, and I didn’t want to look stupid.  As of right now, I’m not going to jump the gun and try to get into a relationship, however, this is a great start. She didn’t ask me if I had a girlfriend and I didn’t ask her if she had a boyfriend, as time passes I’ll ask.

At the same time, I have another girl from Kazakhstan trying also talk to me. We’ll see how that happens.

I’ve noticed this website mainly caters to people under 27, which is fine because I’m in this age category!  

Some of the people actually post their phone numbers AND their addresses. Too bad I can’t read them, wait scratch that, I can read it, but I don’t understand it!  

We’ll see how this progresses!  8)

    Dear Krystyna,

    What do you think about the website http://www.girlsmate.com/ ? Do you think women seeking for marriage will register in this website? While searching for profiles on the Internet, I’m a bit surprise to find the profile in this website, which seems a bit too casual…

    Regards,

      Dear Eric,

      I am not sure that Ukrainian women with serious intentions to find a man abroad will register on girlsmate.com. In my opinion, this site is not like a professional matchmaking site or company but rather social community. The common goal of the girls registered on this site is traveling, not find a man for life.

      Of course, there is the possibility to find a match from Ukraine, but it is quite low. I guess the profiles of Ukrainian and Russian girls are genuine but as said above, the girls want to travel and learn new cultures. The age group of the registered girls is about 20-up to 25 years. I am not sure if they are mature enough for marriage and family.

      I would advice to use professional online dating sites. The services of such sites are not free but the possibility to find a wife is bigger than on girlsmate.com

        Dear Krystyna,

        Thanks for your reply.

        I searched from an online dating site indeed and found a profile. As usual, I searched this profile information on the Internet and was surprised to find that she was registered on this “travel companion” website.

        One thing I like Exxxxx Mxxxxx website is that similar to the age requirement, the profiles have indication on the race of the partner they are looking for.

          Hi Krystyna,

          How are you doing? I’m a single guy from Cape Town, South Africa. I am 33 years old, 178cm tall, non drinker, non smoker, and a Fitness Professional by trade.

          I’ve just purchased a plane ticket to St Petersburg, Russia, and will arrive on Saturday, 6th October 2012, and depart back home on Thursday, 18th October 2012.

          I thought I might as well buy an actual ticket and meet real Russian women in person than to spend too much time online. Are there any tips you have for me? I am a total extrovert so I have no problem stopping strangers in the streets, malls, cafe’s and just introducing myself.

          Are Russian women open to being approached by strangers if they are foreign and English speaking? Not to blow my own horn, but I consider myself reasonably good looking and I have toned, athletic physique as I work out six days a week.

          I would appreciate your advice. I have already signed up with http://www.russiancupid.com and they look legit to me.

        Dear Krystyna,

        As far as I could remember what I had read from the Internet, it is a tradition for women in Russia to get married early. Do you mean that the situation is different or has changed in Ukraine?

        Regards,
        Eric

    Hello, good morning my name is Jaime Lopez , I just want to say that I have been on russian dating sites for 10 months and pretty much they’re scams they want you to pay for everything from sending a text to receiving a text to sending a picture to receiving a picture never got the chance to even know if that person was the person that I was sending the text to and that person sometimes I see her on other dating sites and she doesn’t even know who I was,so dating sites no go. Right now I am on VK I have meet women and men but no luck.. One thing is maybe I just don’t know how to use vk right. That’s what I think 🤔 but I’m not giving up l want to find my Slavic half . For some reason or another I keep getting pictures of beautiful ladies in swim suits or bra and underwear they are very beautiful but it looks like they are models for a modeling agency and that’s about 97% of pictures. Maybe I just don’t know if I am on the right site of vk🤷‍♂️🤔. I would appreciate your input. Thank you and have a great day.
