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.

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.

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