Ukrainian brides are hot. The pictures in our Ukraine Gallery establish that fact, but the problem for a lot of men interested in international dating is that, except for the profiles of the amazing ladies in the galleries they know absolutely nothing about Ukraine.
To a lot of men the Ukraine appears to be some sort of a mythical paradise lost where all the women are ravishingly beautiful and the water tastes like wine.
Fortunately, that's not too far from the truth!
The Ukraine is a real country in Eastern Europe that for a variety of reasons is the red hot center of international dating. The place is pretty well over run with hot Ukrainian mail order brides.
Culturally, Ukraine and Russia girls are virtually indistinguishable to foreigners, so Ukraine dating is essentially the same as Russian dating.
However, Ukrainian women are not as ethnically diverse as Russian women. Ukrainian women tend to be tall and they are often blonds. There are some Ukrainian women who clearly have Turkish heritage, but that is a little unusual.
The biggest difference between the Ukrainians and the Russians is that for most of Ukrainian history the cities were small, the country was rural, and the people were largely farmers.
This meant that Russians often joked about the Ukrainians as being sort of backwoods hillbillies and the Ukrainians often thought of the Russians as effete city slickers.
Even today many beautiful Ukrainian mail order brides have small town roots. There are big cities in the Ukraine, but none that compare to Moscow. And the Ukrainian people are still closer to the land than the Russians.
Since the fall of the Soviet Union the competition between Russians and Ukrainians has really heated up, because the newly independent Ukrainians have to come up with ways to differentiate themselves from the Russians.
The competition between the Ukraine and Russian even carries over to the international dating industry. Ukrainian women often make an effort to differentiate themselves from their Russian sisters, but often when a guy searches the internet for "beautiful Russian women" or "young Russian models" the search results he looks at are actually beautiful Ukrainian brides.
Ukrainian dating agencies muddy the water a good bit on this issue, because Russia is a more widely known country around the world and gets more internet searches so they optimize their sites for the term Russian dating - not Ukrainian dating.
However, I don't imagine that it makes much difference to the average guy, because both Russian and Ukrainian girls are super hot.
Here's a pretty good Video that will show you the difference between Russian girls and Ukraine girls:
One nice aspect to pursuing a beautiful Ukrainian girl is that in the Ukraine dating is not as stressful as it is in some other cultures, particularly not for foreign men.
In some places like Japan or China one of the gut wrenching challenges of international dating is meeting the family, because it is likely that most girls' families will oppose them marrying a foreigner.
However, in the Ukraine if you play you cards right the family will probably be on your side. The reason for this is pretty simple; most likely the only family your beautiful Ukrainian girlfriend has is her mom and perhaps a brother or sister, because the average life expectancy of Ukrainian men is only about 58.
It's a sad truth but many Ukrainian men suffer from excessive consumption of alcohol, and with it comes a lot of sadness, abuse, and violence for their spouses. Many Ukrainian Women, and their famlies, think they stand a better chance of finding kinder treatment from a foreign husband.
Another reason you may have an easy time winning over your Ukraine babes family is that the economy of the independent Ukraine has been shaky from the start and often a girl's family will be enthusiastic about her dating a "rich" foreigner and you should be very careful about making any promises about money to her mom or siblings.
Even more important is that so many Ukrainian women have married American and European men in the last twenty years that serious foreign men have a great reputation in the Ukraine.
Nearly everyone knows of a friend or relative who married a foreign man and is happily married in Canada, Australia, the United States, or the Europeans Union, and most of the time a girl's family is overjoyed that she is going to avoid the hard drinking local guys and catch a great foreign guy.
Also, the media in the Ukraine is generally positive about international dating unlike in Russia, where there is some official resistance, or Belarus, where the government has tried to stop it in the past.
Consider that Kiev alone boasts more than 25 marriage agencies, and you'll understand just how open and acceptable it is for a girl to become a Ukrainian mail order bride.
In general Ukrainians are sort of honored that there women are so hot that men travel from around the world to meet them.
One factor that often is often overlooked in the West is that many Ukrainian women are natural born bikini babes. Much of the Ukrainian borders the Black Sea.
The Crimean Peninsula was the summer vacation home for Soviet commissars and Imperial Russian princes, so many Ukrainian women grow up spending a lot of time on the beach just like California girls or Australian babes.
This beach culture keeps Ukraine girls focused on staying in tip-top bikini shape all through the winter and, as you can see from our Galleries, these Ukrainian women are very focused!
One thing that most men notice about Ukrainian brides is just how many are in great physical shape. This is true across the states of the former Soviet Union, but the Ukrainian girls seem to take fitness to an extreme, a good extreme, but an extreme none the less.
Lots of girls on any decent Ukrainian dating site have toned abs and mention the gym or fitness in their profiles. Praise the Lord!
Furthermore, Ukrainian women are very fashion conscious. Walk down Kreschatik Avenue in Kiev, and you'd swear you were in Paris or New York from the fashionable, smartly dressed girls you'll see.
Here is some advice for men thinking about persuing a Ukrainian bride:
