Brides of Ukraine: trustworthy or not?

Question: Hi Krystyna I have enjoyed reading your site. I was wondering if you have had any experience with the site Brides of Ukraine. The link is:

I have corresponded with quite a number of women on the site and I am getting mixed views. There are definitely some valid women who correspond with me. They are willing to participate in video sessions, they will send every day photos and they never ask for money.

I still feel a bit uneasy because some of the replies I do get are fairly generic in their responses, don’t want to share every day photos and don’t want to participate in video sessions. Some of these women claim not to have access to the photos or they are too busy to attend video sessions.

Many of the Ukrainian women I have contacted say that they do not have the money to have access to computers or internet cafes, so that they use the dating agency. Also, the dating agency provides the translation service for both the foreigner and the Ukrainian lady.

So far, I have found the Brides of Ukraine agency to be quite good; I think that there are genuine women who are looking for a partner. You can tell from the types of responses you get to your emails and the level of interest that they show in the communication.

There are also some women listed who I think are just professional daters and who are not really interested. I mean why would 22 year old women write to me – I am 63 years old. Yes, I am very fit and keep a very slim figure, but the age gap is quite incredible.

brides of ukraine

When I was first joined the Ukrainian brides dating site, I began writing to a number of ladies to see what would happen and I still keep in touch with a few ladies who have shown interest in either skyping or meeting me if I came to the Ukraine.

During this time, I have developed quite a good communication with one lady in particular, with whom I have been emailing and skyping regularly. She is very interested in my coming to her city and spending time with her, which is very good. I am also very interested in meeting her because we have developed quite a close communication. Things might turn out very well for both of us, but neither of us can know yet.

Like the risks with any dating opportunity, I could visit only her, no-one else, and either one of us could find out that the love chemistry is not there, notwithstanding our good communication. This would be a significant disappointment both for her and for me. However, it could turn out that we don’t have the chemistry to form a relationship.

It is going to be quite expensive to travel from Australia to the Ukraine, so would it be your recommendation to visit with a number of women, notwithstanding the excellent communication I have developed with one in particular? I am probably only going to have about 7 to 10 days, because it is difficult to get time off work just now. If my company only lets me take vacation for about 7 days, then I may only be able to get to one city, maybe two, because I will have stopovers in Asia en route to Europe (both ways).

Do you have any perspectives on this site and the validity of the women?

Thanks very much

Hi Greg,

I have never used the site Brides of Ukraine, surely have heard about this site but cannot tell you if it is serious or not. In my opinion, on each International dating site you can get scammed (either of the dating agency, or scammers and professional pro-daters). There are very many Russian/Ukrainian online dating sites which do not work seriously or there are a lot of scammers and professional pro-daters on them.

I know NO Ukrainian online dating site which may be scam-free. I want to say you that, unfortunately, unserious agencies, dating sites, scammers and professional pro-daters simply destroy online dating and especially the reputation of Ukrainian women. "We are all only gold-diggers and bad people...."

Here are a few tips from me how to avoid getting scammed:

Before you sign up with any site, including any of the sites mentioned above, you should do your homework. It is important to look for information about the site including any reviews available from former members, especially those who found a wife using the service.

Pay particular attention to their experiences while using the site. You may also want to search to find out how Russian and Ukrainian women view the sites. If a particular site does not have such a high rating with women, you probably won’t want to sign up for that site.

E.g. I found following reviews on this site:

1. 2.;

If the woman says she has no time for sending photos to you it is as for me a red sign. The woman looking for a man abroad knows that she has to invest time for International online dating.

If you want to prove if your woman is interested in you and not is a professional pro-dater who is paid by a dating company for chatting with Western men, it is recommended to contact her through or (social networks in Russia and Ukraine). If she does not answer you, it is a bad sign and it is evident that she has no serious intentions.

  1. I regestered with this website and wrote in all my text scam buster and other text and uploaded no photos i received over 300 letters this shows that ladies are not sending the letters as if they where they would not send letters to a man that say in his profile only the words scam buster !!! do not use this website !! IT IS NOTHING BUT A SCAM

  2. I registered on this website and wrote in my profile I was arrested for child molestation and other things and uploaded porno photos I received over 400 letters in 2 weeks this shows that ladies are not sending or writing the letters, if they where they sure would not send letters to a man that said what I wrote in my profile !!! do not use this website !! IT IS A BIG SCAM also I just registered and fill in nothing and received hundreds of e-mails with an incomplete profile. So if you do not believe test it yourself , DO NOT BE A FULL AND USE THIS WEBSITE

  3. is nothing but a BIG SCAM I paid over $500 for a plantuim membership and received 100’s of letters from ladies , I was very disappointed when I found out that the letters were written by the agency because at meeting the ladies did not know anything about me after months of letters being exchanged, also when I had meeting with the ladies I wrote to they would take me to very expensive restaurants and order large meals along with there interpreters! after the meeting the ladies all asked for about 25.00 dollars for taxi’s and said they wanted to meet again and when I called there interpreters to organize another meeting the ladies would be suddenly sick or there was a sudden death in the family. I found out from a local I meet that all the ladies on bridesofukraine have deals with restaurants and get a 50 % kick back for bringing the guys there as the restaurant doubles the bills and they never take taxi’s and the taxi money is a big scam. I also found out that they split the money with interrupters, So this agency runs nothing but a giant scam.

    Beware all these ladies are on this site as they make money and that is it

  4. I want to ask why do the Ukraine ladies judge my country when they have never been here and looks like they only want to move to EU or USA or Australia we also have developed country believe me where not what u see on TV and I thought the ladies are looking for love and security and not location let me khow your thoughts on my question asap

  5. I registered on this website and wrote nothing in the about me and about partners boxes plus never filled any other details and uploaded no photos, I received over 200 letters in 5 days this just shows that ladies are not writing the letters and sending them, This agency works with professional agencies that have ladies that are on this website just to make money. If you have time and money to waste a live in a fantasy land. USE THIS SITE AS YOU ARE WHAT THEY ARE LOOKING FOR A IDIOT !!!


  6. I am Joac him Eisele, 42 years old from Germany. I had used the service from Brides of Ukraine Agency

    33 Deribasovskaya Str., Office #365, Odessa 65026, Ukraine.

    Unfortunately very soon I had understood, that this agency not works seriously with their clients. In their internet page I had choosen about 20 women. I was surprices, that this agency have such a big database of beautiful and intelligent women.

    I was meeting Mrs. Daria, one of the administrators from Brides of Ukraine Agency in their office. It was very difficult to find the office of the agency. Visitors can not find any billboards or address signs of the agency. The office is in an old buildung in one poor room.

    So Mrs. Daria had taken the list with the women, which I want to meet. She arranges firstly two meetings with women from Odessa. I had choosen women with an intermediate English knowledge. One day later was the first meeting with the woman. She was comming together with an translator. We met in front of a restaurant in the center from Odessa.

    A staff from the dating agency Brides of Ukraine was not by this date. The tanslator and the woman had chosen a restaurant in the center from Odessa (one of them was the restaurant Mamma Mia). As I saw the prices in the menu I was a little chocked. So the woman and the translator ordered two fresh juices, two salads, one green tea and one risotto. I had only a green tea. The date in the restaurant was about 3 hours. The translator doing in this time some of her private correspondence, speakting with their grandmother and other clients by phone.

    It was not possible to speak with the woman directly, because she understood only some words in English and was an English beginner. I was again surpriced as I got the bill UAH 1760,- (EUR 63,-). The woman urget me to give on top UAH 240,- (EUR 8,60) for tip. After the payment of the bill, the translator asked for money for the taxi for the woman. I had given her UAH 100,- (EUR 3,50) which was more than enough to go with the taxi for about 8 km in Odessa.

    But also the translator asked for money for her taxi. The payment for the service of the translator was for 3 hours USD 60,-. The woman tolds me that she will stay in contact with me and want meet me again during the weekend. But she had never called me, to make a next date.

    In the next day I was again in the same restaurant. As I was alone there I checked, that now the pices was 3.5 times more cheaper, that together with the woman and translator. With the next date from the other woman from the dating agency, the situation was very similar.

    Even the members from Odessa of the dating agency as also the translators don`t know the dating agency Brides of Ukraine. As I had understood, the dating agency Brides of Ukraine take their database without any control from other agencies.

    The service of the dating agency Brides of Ukraine was to call to another agency and make an appointment with the women. The descriptions of the members don`t come by themselves, but are made by an agency. The descriptions don`t correspond to reality, especially knowledge of english are not specified.

    I assure, that all my informations correspond to the truth. For any requests, please contact me by e-mail: [email protected]

  7. Are you kidding me? They are one of the biggest scammers out there, and I called them on it. Your “support” is some guy named “Norman”. Really??? A tell-tale sign is any site that shows 100 women online at 3 in the morning. This would NOT be the case with a legitimate site.
