Trip report - Mila
« on: January 26, 2020, 01:24:28 PM »
Hi , forgot to mention the trip I went on was organized with Mila in Kharkiv
She has a matchmaking service 1-1 which is for people who a serious about meeting someone. I am going back there soon . Mila will organize everything. She genuinely wants to help.

I would prefer to talk to guys face to face about the service as I believe it is a good way to meet someone genuine. If anyone is in London or Melbourne in a few weeks I am happy to elaborate . My experience was that in  Ukraine it wasnt  that easy to meet women unless you had something organized.  I am over 40. Forget the idea you land in Kiev and start swiping on tinder as I have read elsewhere.

I dont mean to sound arrogant but I am sure I might have  slightly easier time persuading  pretty much any single male to do a trip to the Ukraine to meet women , rather than North Korea. Call me ambitious.

When I was single in Kiev, I could get 3 phone numbers a day from ladies I met on the street. It would be easy to get a date same or next day.

Also there are dating sites like Mamba.ru where you can contact ladies, tell them you're in town and get a date right away.

A lot of guys go over there and have their mind set on one woman they've been communicating with for months. They should have a back up plan using methods like the ones I mentioned above. Other option is to sit in hotel room, cry and feel sorry for themselves.

Anyone serious thinking in going over to Ukraine , I would advise you need something organized first.  I met guys in Ukraine from western countries who have told me the same thing.

Dont just arrive in 2020 and walk the streets hoping some girl will like you. Some guy might claim this works but my experience and by speaking to others in Ukraine you are likely to need something organized before coming. Dont rely on a dating site is all i can say.  Westerners in Kiev are not new and all a girl has to do is wait next week for another westerner . I have been told more than once to avoid Kiev for dating.
 

Kharkov does not have a thriving singles scene eg singles events, speed dating... it isnt their culture. They seem to prefer to meet through friends of friends  (this is a generalization of course). Then and only then some girls might move towards matchmaking services . You will meet this way.

I think the current Ukraine dating  scene sounds  a bit different now to  a few years before (at a guess).

Lots of guys sign up to dating sites and will use their email as their name.. for example his mother called him Bob.. but he decided to call himself  boby638@gmail.com

Some guys changed their names to VK2879047 Presumably so the women will write to them..

Maybe you could walk about in Kiev with a big coat and on the back could have for example in White writing "Text Me +5790037886" Or some thing like that..

Personally I never understood this mentality can you imagine going to a night club with "Text me +753987264 " On the back of your jacket?? Some how I don't think any women would text you or even speak to you, actually you would probably get beaten up for being a jerk..

Ideally i wanted late 30's , early 40's at most.  NO point in coming all the way for an impractical situation like a girl in 20's or 30-33

Hi, how do you know on average 2/3 years? Is this how long it takes to actually find someone? or the time you are finding your lady and she is living with you?

Well dating any women or finding a women you finally wish to marry usually takes 2/3 years where ever you live and where ever you date or search for a partner..

No different in Ukraine! Even more so now as women are not so easy to drop every thing and bugger off to another country with a guy she hardly knows.

There is no set time scale, some guys can be lucky meet a girl and genuinely fall in love or click and find them selves married within a year.. but it is not common.

Your going to have to travel several times to Ukraine at least before you even find a women that you both like each other.. then maybe 6 months later you realise you have nothing in common and its back to step one again..and that can happen a few times.. two years is not a long time to be travelling meeting and dating.

No different to dating at home.. you meet the girl go out together for 6 months and finally part.. same happens in Eastern Europe.. no different there, although lots of guys expect to go meet a few women and marry a couple of months later.. Yea the filipinos that still happens.. but I don't think Ukraine any more..

You can try to prove me wrong..but I know from many many many many guys exactly how it works..

But you got an advantage over many guys and that is your searching for a women in a realistic age group and not a granddaughter .. so I would say you have a good chance, just got to stick at it and be ready for the long haul..

took me 4 years, countless trips and 2 "failed" relationships before I found my gem. Now been married for 6 months, expecting an addition to the family in 4 months, wife is thriving in our new home, kisses me goodbye in the morning with a big smile, kisses me passionate welcome home every evening.  :)
(don't think I ever been so pampered in my life before, a nice surprise I really never expected)

Nothing about this has been easy, but worth every little effort.

Hi, thanks for the messages.

If you stick at it you will find what you want. Seems good advice

Of course if you stick at it you will succeed people always do with that approach.. It is no different to tunneling out of a concentration camp.. stick at it and you will escape .. sit there with all the other lot complaining about potato soup for dinner and your aunty being gassed at the weekend nothing will happen.. :laugh:

To many people sign up looking for a women and within 1/2 moths they already have become lazy.. cant be assed to write letters, cant be assed to answer letters other than"  Hello " or "What do you want to know about me"

Be proactive non stop 24/7 be it on a dating site, Tinder, agency or what ever..

Dude, educate yourself. Read your welcome PM. You can read a little of what I knew up to 2008 here. I've forgotten more about this endeavour than you'll ever know. I was dating in the FSU in 1998. This is my site after all............

As for you, you first registered here in 2007 as Jagguy, then you became Hagar, then you made a new account as Andrew99. But as of 2 weeks ago you were still logging on with your old ID and we dont allow duplicate IDs here. So I have merged your old Jaggguy/Hagar IDs with your current one so our members can read your posts in context. Why not tell the good people what happened with Anna so others may learn from your mistakes?
