Plenty of misconceptions about Ukrainian girls and women circulate online. I often read posts and even answers to questions at respectable websites that get the most views and they are written by people who have never been to Ukraine or dated a local girl.
For some reasons these people think they are qualified to judge women of a whole nation, because they know someone who talked to or dated a Ukrainian girl online some 15 years ago. It would be hilarious if it wasn’t so pitiful.
Let’s dispel some of the classic Ukrainian girls’ myths. Consider facts not fiction and today’s realities as compared to what had been 20 years ago.
4 typical myths about Ukrainian women
1. They live in poverty. Syrian refugees walk around with the latest iPhones and you think women from a European country go without modern gadgets, Internet, and Italian fashion? Yes, their wages are lower if you consider an equivalent in your currency. However, prices in their country are also substantially lower. Can you spend a week on the sea for USD $300? They can. Can you buy an apartment for $15,000?
They can. The majority of Ukrainian women own their homes outright, no mortgage. You may have less spare money left after paying the bills than they do. So, you may be the one living in poverty as compared to them. Actually, there are many westerners who move to live in Ukraine because their money goes such a long way there. Go to YouTube and watch a couple of videos with aerial views or drone flights over Kiev, Odessa, or Lviv. You will be impressed.
2. They want to marry wealthy foreigners. Women of all nations prefer wealthy gentlemen to poor guys. It’s hardly news. Single girls of any nationality want to meet a decent and stable guy when thinking about settling down. Ukrainian girls are not any different. There is no national factor here.
3. Ukrainian women have no career aspirations. In their own country right now there are not many career prospects due to the economic crisis in the past 2 years (2014-2016). Average wages dropped in half and lots of businesses closed down. This is why many Ukrainians go to work abroad. Nearby Poland has over 1 million Ukrainians working there. Then they come home, buy $15,000 apartments and live pretty well. Because they may not know the language perfectly or don’t have local qualifications, Ukrainians often work in junior positions or the ones that are easy to get (collecting and packing fruit, for example). It doesn’t mean they have no career aspirations but they simply do what they can in order to support their families back home. Seasonal jobs are the simplest to obtain. She may have a degree as a teacher or even a medical doctor, but work as a cashier in Europe. Such jobs are easily accessible to foreigners and paid better than what she would have earned in Ukraine doing her qualified work.
4. Girls from Ukraine are gold-diggers. Look at the plethora Ukraine updates of Sugar Daddy websites and see which countries female users come from. Are they Ukrainians? No, most of them are western girls and women. Sure, each nation has its share of gold-digging females. But these types are easy to pick for anyone with a bit of experience in dating. Guys who fall for gold-diggers are often users themselves. Especially the ones who want to date or marry a girl 20-30 years younger, they are likely to run into a few of the digging type and face problems. Good girls prefer guys of their own age or slightly older (5-10 years). All you need is to have a stable job and don’t abuse alcohol. If you in addition to these major positive traits also desire to settle down and maybe have babies, then you will capture their undivided attention. Ukraine has one of the lowest male to female ratios in the world: Only 86 men for 100 women. Getting a lifetime partner is an issue there, especially given the fact that many Ukrainian guys immigrate or work overseas due to the crisis. Girls are not migrating for jobs that often, as females are more vulnerable in an unknown environment.
