Guys, who have already made the initial contact with their Ukrainian brides, are looking forward to meet their beauties. There a a couple of things that every man needs to know, and some things to watch out for, when dating a Ukrainian lady.
Ukrainian women like generous men
These days, the term of being polite, has a different meaning in the prominent countries of the West and other arts of the world. It is always a sensitive topic when it comes to the relationship of men and women. While in some European countries, offering a woman to split the costs of the dinner might be considered as a good manner and respect to the equal rights, then in the Eastern part most of the women will take it almost as an insult. They would think that they did something wrong. Ukrainian girls expect you to pay for everything if you are going out. It is quite normal for them that the guy pays for all activities that you do together. If you invite her downtown in the evening and later on she wants to get home safe, it is also a nice gesture to pay for her taxi. You will earn some extra points if you bring a gift for her from your home country. Or just something nice, like a piece of jewelry. It is still very common in Ukraine to give ladies flowers. They assume that you will have them when you first meet. It is considered very good tone. So if you are hesitating whether you should get flowers or not, then rather buy them. You never want to disappoint your Ukrainian princess.
Choosing the places to go is very important
Ukrainian women like men who are willing to take the initiative. It is also very important when you are in the process of dating. Whenever you invite a girl out, you need to have a plan. Of course, you might think that she is local and you are not and she might know better where to go. However, do not leave it only up to her. You need to make some research and find some options of the restaurants, lounges and other forms of entertainment in town. Otherwise, she will be put in an uncomfortable position where she has to decide for both of you. Ukrainian girls do not like to be put under pressure. Not knowing you well enough, she might be indecisive about where to go, because she will be afraid that you would not like her choice. This can seriously ruin your date. Of course, if she shows the initiative herself and wants to make a suggestion, this is totally fine. It will give you more information about her preferences.
Things to be careful with
One of the important aspects of the date is the conversation. You should always be aware of the language barrier. You should pick the topics of conversation depending on how well the Ukrainian lady speaks the language. Try not to use too complicated words and phrases. If you are a big fan of allegories and sarcasm, then you should know, that in case of dating with a foreigner, you will have to really watch what you are saying. It is rather awkward if you think you made a joke and the partner does not understand it at all.
Though, Ukrainian women love a good sense of humor, so the easiest and the safest way is to make fun of yourself. For the first few dates you should always try to avoid sensitive topics, such as politics. In general, it makes sense not to express any radical opinions about any topic. You should let the other person get to know you first, otherwise she might judge you by the wrong aspects. Try to avoid talking too much about yourself. Of course she is interested in your background, but don’t make your stories too long. If you are dating a Ukrainian girl who is not a fluent English speaker, it is probably hard for her to follow. To keep the conversation going, you have to ask questions. If you see that your Ukrainian bride has difficulty expressing herself, try to encourage her. This way you will earn a lot of trust. Trust is very important when it comes to the relationship between the partners from different nations. It is always harder to read people who are from abroad. For instance, Ukrainian ladies sometimes do not mind having sex on the first date, but do not be too assumptive. It is ok to be persistent, but if you are not sure whether the partner is ready, then it is better not to take the risk.
All in all, it is not that hard to date a Ukrainian woman and the things that you have to count with are quite the same as if you were dating a lady from any other European country. If you show sincere interest and empathy, your dates are bound to be successful.
