Whatever it is about girls from Kiev (Kyiv)one thing is for sure, Kiev is full of beautiful girls

So You Want to Date 

Now pay attention! If you are to have any success dating a Ukrainian woman you will need to understand their mentality.

Ukrainian girls behave very differently to Western women and unless you understand this you will fail miserably.

Ukrainian women fall into 3 categories. The good girls that will never sleep with you until you are in a meaningful relationship, the bad girls that see foreigners as "cash-machines" and the girls that want to improve their English and just hang-out.

The main factor in dating Ukrainian girls is overcoming their suspicions of you. For many years Ukraine was seen as a sex tourist destination. Ukrainian women look for a stable enduring relationship, not one-night-stands. Things have moved on a bit since but Ukrainian women are still deeply suspicious of foreign men and you will need to overcome this and reassure them. But don't "bullshit them", most Ukrainian girls are clever and intelligent. Remember, girls from Kiev are used to chancers, they ill see through your lies straight away.

The Good Girls

Do not think that just because Ukrainian girls dress seductively that they are all prostitutes. In fact you would be completely wrong. Femininity and beauty are important to Ukrainian women and compliments about their appearance are greatly appreciated. In fact despite the way they dress you will find Ukrainian women's moral standards very high. There are many reasons for this, culturally no "nice girl" wants to be perceived as easy and ready to drop her knickers to the first rich foreigner. Kiev (Kyiv) is often described as a small village (despite a population of about 2.8 million) and gossip travels fast so no girl likes a reputation as a slut. Another reason is that Ukrainian's are quite religious and behave with moral integrity. You will need to treat these women with respect, act like a gentleman and wait until she is ready. One thing to look out for, decent Ukrainian girls will not ask you for gifts or money, but appreciate thoughtful small presents. The great news is that if you are lucky enough to find yourself a nice Ukrainian girl then she is likely to be loyal, honest and a good home-maker.

The Bad Girls

So you have heard the saying "Good girls go to Heaven and bad girls go everywhere". Well the "bad girls" in Kiev do go everywhere and do everything you want if you have enough money. Economically Ukraine is not doing too well and a means to survival is money or gifts for sex. If you are here looking to date a girl then this page is not for you - TRY THIS INSTEAD

Girls who Just Hang-Out

The great thing about Ukrainian girls is their sincere straightforward honesty.

The difficulty for many foreign men is understanding the signals and where the "red lines" are. Gone are the days when a westerner could attract girls just by being foreign. The girls in Kiev (Kyiv) have seen it all before and are looking to a future that provides them with security, love and a person they can respect and be respected by. Many girls in Kiev, especially students, are always open to meeting foreign guys. They might flirt a bit, be happy to dance with you, chat and drink and you might possibly be able to steal a kiss if your lucky. But that is where it will end. These girls are just happy to hang-out with you, practice their English and have some good clean fun. Don't be disappointed if you go home alone. 

The Do's and Don'ts of Dating

Sometimes what is acceptable and usual back home is not the same elsewhere. Here are a few handy pointers to help your chances of dating end with a kiss rather than a slap.

  1. Do make an effort to dress to impress, Ukrainian girls like to see you made an effort.

  2. Do bring flowers or chocolates for your lady, but never an even number of flowers as this is traditionally only for funerals.

  3. Don't be arrogant and loud, Ukrainian women respect good manners. 

  4. Do open doors and act like a gentleman, Ukrainian women expect to be treated like princesses.

  5. Don't confuse Ukraine with Russia, they are totally different.

  6. Don't be offended by direct questions, Ukrainian's are open and sometimes frighteningly frank and honest. If they do not like something they will tell you.

  7. Do act confidently and assured. Ukrainian women like to feel protected.

  8. Don't wait for her to make the first move. In Ukrainian culture women expect men to take the initiative so go and talk to her, but don't be put off if she does not at first appear interested as this is normal.

That's it! Life is full of chance but I hope this gives you slightly more increased odds of success.
