Ukrainian ladies are not immune to a culture that’s becoming more and more modern – perceptions change, views are influenced and actions take a different course. With it, we see a difference in what most modern Ukrainian women aspire to in life. Instead of just settling down and having children of their own, they want to experience more and be more. Here are a couple of our observations:
1. Ukrainian ladies are more open to leaving Ukraine.
Although modern Ukrainian women are open to leaving their country, they’re not very vocal or upfront about it because of what other Ukrainians may think. Like Russians, Ukrainians are very patriotic. If a Ukrainian woman leaves the country, she may think that people might view her as someone who’s not loyal to Ukraine. This was then, however. Nowadays, ladies are more open and vocal to the idea of living some place else other than Ukraine.
2. Western way of thinking.
How do we know this? Well, for one, the Ukrainian President expressed his support for LGBT equality march at a press conference on Jun 5, 2015. The march happened the following day. This was a milestone considering that no Ukrainian president has ever showed support, let alone commented, on LGBT rights. Modern Ukrainian women, on the other hand, are opening up to the idea of equality and opportunity for all genders, just like the president – a very Westernized behavior, don’t you think?
3. Long-term relationships.
In the relationship-front, nothing much has changed. The want is still the same: long term relationships that eventually end up in marriage. The dynamics, however, changed slightly. More serious Ukrainian ladies are now staying away from bars and pubs, and are going into online dating and meeting the men they’ve met online every so often for a long-distance yet meaningful relationship. It might also be possible that more and more modern Ukrainian women are online dating because of the possibility of a man sweeping them off their feet and bringing them out of Ukraine.
4. Career does not equal office work.
A couple of years back, any kind of office work was sought after because of the lack of real opportunity for women in Ukraine. Nowadays, because career opportunities are still scarce, Ukrainian women seem to be focusing their drive and passion into other things other than their career: travelling, meeting new people, learning a new language and getting married.
5. Professional circle are the way to go.
As mentioned earlier, more women who are looking for serious relationships are staying away from the club scene. Women are now either sticking to online dating or meeting new people who are within their professional circles. For a foreign man, the deeper you are in the circle, the more likely that you will meet a Ukrainian woman who wants the same things you do.
With Ukrainian women’s way of thinking changing, foreign men should also change their approach when meeting these kinds of women both online and offline. It’s great news that more and more Ukrainian women are willing and open to leaving their country and exploring the option of online dating some more. These are just more reasons to find a bride or a girlfriend in the beautiful country of Ukraine.
