Cultural Considerations Men Make While Dating in Ukraine
There are quite a few pros and cons of marrying a Ukrainian woman. A lot of men who want to be with one often find themselves weighing those pros and cons during the times when they find themselves dating in Ukraine.
One of the pros and cons of some of the Western men who are trying to find love in Ukraine is the culture. The culture is both a pro and a con. It is a pro because not everyone gets to experience a different culture and that is a bit of a novel experience. But it can be a con because some of these men are not the most culturally sensitive.
But there are a few considerations that these men have to make when they meet the women they connect with on dating sites. One of those is that because those women come from a culture that is vastly different than their own, that they will have to make some adjustments.
The compromises one makes in a long distance relationship may be hard. But that doesn’t mean they are impossible to overcome. As long as you know what you need to adjust to, you and your partner can get by. Here are the cultural differences you should prepare for:
- The Food is Different
- Locals Might Get a Little Loud
- Cars Abound, But so Do Other Modes Of Transportation
- A Good Sport
- Linguistic Difference
Food is an important part of any culture. Naturally, Ukrainians have a special affinity with Ukrainian cuisine. But someone with a westernized palette may find themselves somewhat lost in the culinary scene.
A western man steadily dating a Ukrainian is more likely to chow on some cabbage rolls than hamburgers in certain areas. In fact, developing a taste for such food may be part and parcel of marrying a Ukrainian woman. Such food may be a little more common on local dinner tables than pizza.
Even if you were to find something that your taste buds have acclimated to, there is a pretty good chance that there is going to be a local spin on it that makes it a lot different than what you are normally used to.
In some circumstances, people are taught to bottle up their emotions and smile politely. That is not the case in Ukraine. Ukrainian people can be a little loud when they express their emotions. So anyone who is an outsider in the country may have to be ready for something like that.
As such, if you are more of the reserved, silent type, you may be in for a bit of a shock when you find yourself in the enviable position of dating a Ukrainian woman. Being a little emotional may not be a total deal breaker for a lot of guys, but it is still something to be ready for.
That emotional openness is a great way to know the answer to the query of can you trust a Ukrainian woman.
Your daily commute to work, if you have one, may require a car or some form of public transportation. Maybe you take a bus or a train. Maybe you use some kind of ride-sharing app. Those things are also available in Ukraine.
But those things are not the only vehicles available in Ukraine. One of those vehicles is the horse-drawn carriage. Sure, you are not likely to spot them driving down a thoroughfare in a major city, but they have not disappeared entirely. Some rural areas still make pretty good use of them.
You may not see a carriage ride along next to a car or a bus down a city street, but go beyond the city a little bit, and you may spot one.
In certain parts of the west such as America, the most popular sports are gridiron football and basketball. Those are the games that get the most coverage in the media. That is not the case in Ukraine.
While basketball is widely popular in certain parts of the world, by far the most popular sport in Ukraine is football (the kind in which goals are scored and not touchdowns). Now, football’s popularity in the region is not all that surprising when you remember that it is by far the most popular sport in the world.
So any Western man who has not developed a taste for it may find themselves attached to a woman who has a love for it when dating in Ukraine. So it may do you some good to develop an appreciation for the game. At the very least, you won’t be completely confused with the worldwide fervor that comes around every four years during the World Cup.
Now there are people in Ukraine who can speak English, enough that you can get by without becoming fluent in a Slavic language or becoming literate in the Cyrillic alphabet. However, it will probably help to pick a few phrases in either Ukrainian or Russian just so you can better get around town.
However, you are likely to find a woman who can speak English well enough, especially if she is actively pursuing a relationship with a western man. So you should be able to send off a few flirty exchanges to help you get closer.
Of course, while some of the women that you are with may speak English well enough, it does not mean you should just go on like you are speaking to someone from home. Make sure to simplify your words because English is likely their second language.
The thing about dating a woman from another country is that there are going to be some differences in your cultural backgrounds. Those differences can be grating, but that can be alleviated when you adjust accordingly.
Dating in Ukraine means dating a woman who has a different background than you, a different upbringing. That upbringing means that her life and her values might be different from yours and that the country she grew up in is definitely going to be a little different. But those differences may be great for bringing you two together.
