I would like to go to either Ukraine or Russia this summer even if I don't have a specific woman in an area to visit.
I am going to get on the goals bandwagon.
I advise making a list of what you want and what you don't want. Then coming
up with a plan of action.
The two main strategies are to visit one or to visit many.
The advantage of visiting one is that you get to know ONE girl relatively well and
when you finally meet you know something of each other. The disadvantage of that
plan is that it is risky. Things often don't work out and now you are far from home
and it's difficult to reboot on the fly. (I've done it, but it's not as easy as it might seem).
The advantage of visiting many is that you find out if you have chemistry first before
spending a lot of time or energy on a girl. Ask a girl out for coffee and see how it goes.
Once you find a girl who is superior to the others and a good candidate to be the
future Mrs Cleaver, then you pursue her exclusively.
Men can't be indecisive for this strategy to work otherwise they tend to get the kid
in the candy shop syndrome and end up going home with nobody to pursue in the
future. Or worse yet they go back and try to pursue which ever girl was the hottest
wasting a second trip, when she wasn't the best option for long term.
There is a ton more I could say but that is the quick Cliff Notes version.
I would not go to Ukraine at this time. Omsk, Vladivostok, Chișinău or
Kazakhstan are probably better options to find a good girl right now.
