The Good and Bad Sides of Dating Ukrainian Women
Ukrainian women are known to be some of the most beautiful women in the world and have attracted the admiration of numerous men all around the world. While their lovely characters and stunning looks make them very popular among men, there are many things to consider when it comes to dating Ukrainian girls.
It’s important to keep in mind that people have different needs and what one man doesn’t appreciate another man will. There are no specific pros and cons when it comes to dating, so all information given here should be taken with caution and you should ask what it is that you really need to be happy.
Even though many Ukrainian ladies are highly educated not all of them speak English well. And those women who are not fluent in English might not also have a lot of typing experience. This could lead to misunderstandings and the communication between you and your lovely partner can be a bit difficult in the beginning. You should remember that the Slavic alphabet is different from the English one and she is definitely doing her best to make you understand her. Be patient and read everything carefully. Don’t ask questions that are complicated and try not to use cultural references or slang.
It’s also good to know that the culture of Ukraine is very different from the Western culture in many ways. Some of the differences are obvious while other are subtle and beyond understanding as an outsider. One very obvious thing is how feminine Ukraine women are. They are proud of their looks and many of them may disagree with the feminist ideas that are spreading the western countries. They tend to prefer more traditional roles and want to look good for their partners.
Some men don’t have anything against feminine women who respect traditional values. On the other hand, some men may see this is a sign of repression and may not feel comfortable being taken care of. Some guys from western countries love strong women and wouldn’t hesitate to do their own laundry. Either way is fine, but you must remember that Ukrainian women are intelligent and not stupid just because they enjoy their role as housewives. Plenty of Ukrainian women go to college and proceed to have successful professional careers.
In some circles, the women are known for their emotional and dramatic outbursts. They tend to wear their hearts on their sleeves and they don’t like hiding their feelings. This is the reason why they are sometimes called “high maintenance”. They don’t mind the stereotypes as they believe that expressing your feelings makes you healthier and your relationship stronger.
Being emotional can be a positive and a negative thing. It is bad when you take it in the high maintenance sense as high emotions can lead to arguments and outbursts. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing though. Lots of men are not happy with the games that western women play and complain about them saying one thing while actually meaning something else. This won’t happen to Ukrainian girls who are always honest about their feelings.
One last thing to remember is that when it comes to humour, the cultural differences are quite large. Some men actually believe that their Ukrainian date is not interested in them because she doesn’t laugh at their jokes, but in most cases they just don’t understand the jokes. Sense of humour is cultural so it’s better to get to know her first before trying to make her laugh all the time. You should focus on treating your girl like a princess and she will definitely thank you for it.
