It doesn't matter. Most Americans are going to Kiev anyway. Also most of these Americans are sticking to dating websites, just like a guy in the other thread did. Ukraine is definitely more exposed now as foreign men coming to Ukraine made national news many times on Ukrainian TV. There are also guys from Middle East, Africa, Europe, Canada and South America (believe it or not) that come to Ukraine. What can you do? The word is out, you know. This forum contributes to it as well. We made so many guys happy we don't even know that because they are not posting here.
Again, if I go to Ukraine, I will have a huge pool of girls to choose from. Of course there are gold-diggers, they are everywhere. Of course Ukrainian women are now more entitled, just look at so many foreigners coming there. But feminists? LOL
Give me a break! Women have very few rights in Ukraine and there are still women that are raised in a very traditional way. Also Ukrainian girls lower their standards by far when they mature because there are so many young girls available. So instead of looking for 18 y.o. student when you are 50 look for a girl who is 27 or 30. There are plenty of them, they are much smarter and still very good looking and many still without kids!
As Ladislav posted and I seconded his thoughts many times - you have to INTEGRATE to find a decent girl. That means you HAVE to live there for a few months, but rather a year or two, that way you will be able to date many girls, figure out culture and traditions, see how those girls behave and treat you. I mean - have you seen a pilot who would fly Boeing 747 after a 2 week course? Not going to happen, right? So how can you figure out a person (who is a very "complicated machinery") in one meeting through an interpreter at some dating agency meeting? LOL. And then those guys come here and complain that they are not meeting decent girls. Of course! It takes time, effort and money. The key is understanding culture, traditions and language.
And who said Ukraine is the only country out there? Pick Moldova, Romania, Kazakhstan or Belarus! Go to Russia, go to Latvia or Estonia. Go to Armenia or Georgia! By the way, Georgian government is very pro-American and national politics is also pro-American. They achieved a lot of success in economics, human rights and anti-corruption. And women are still very traditional, they tend to look middle eastern, but what's wrong with that?
Really! You sound like end of the world is coming. "Oh Ukraine is spoiled". Bullshit. There is always a way out. There are always other countries to go to.
