Wide-Spread misunderstandings about Ukrainian Woman
Fact and Fiction-Reality and Myth about Ukrainian Woman
With the boost of Internet dating business and growing popularity of Ukrainian women on the dating scene, a number of Ukrainian women myths have sprung up.
The most discussed as well as the probably most arguable is the statement (mainly from the side of Ukraine based dating services)that woman in Ukraine are more attractive than any other women in the world. Some people provide a number of supportive reasons, others find it an absolute nonsense.
Another myth suggests that all Ukrainian women have no careers ambitions and are happily satisfied with being housewives. In addition many dating services portray Ukrainian women as shy and obedient and mainly aiming at pleasing the husband and taking care of children.
This would be all wrong to make such generalization as Ukrainian women are different and so their desires vary as well. Yet, there are some background factors that gave given birth to this idea. Ukraine is still discriminatory against women in the workplace and in life and when the situation in the family changes and it deems that the woman stays and home and looks after the children or ageing parent, a Ukrainian woman usually agrees to play this model role.
In Ukraine old people ( normally woman as their life expectancy is greater than the men) in need of medical care to stay in institution for elderly care. They are normally taken care by younger women in the family (daughters, daughters-in law, etc.)
Ukraine is a patriarchal country, so taking care of a child and going on a maternity leave, which is a certain break up in the career are mainly a female function
An Ukrainian woman would certainly feel uncertain and probably not willing to go out to work due to her arrival in a new country and not being familiar with the language and customs. However this my just be a transition period and she would change her mind after she has adapted.
Poor adaptation to the onother lifestyle is the next myth about Ukrainian women. Ukrainian women are accused of not knowing English or willing to learn it, not having a driver's license, not being familiar with credit cards and western payment procedures. This is not all true though. Many Ukrainian women posting their ads on dating sites have University degrees, thus have certainly studied English or/and another foreign language at university (English is also obligatory subject in a secondary school), may use it at work or attend classes. Being humble to speak is just explained by the lack of practice. Additional classes and live communication will help bridge the language gap soon.
Ukrainian Women Truths.
So you've made up your mind to marry a Ukrainian Woman. But first you should understand the fact that Ukrainian means different culture, different traditions different code of behaviour. Ukrainian Women think in a different way, sometimes their wishes, their aspirations and motives are completely opposite to those that women in other countries have. We understand that there are certain stereotypes concerning Ukrainian in general and Ukrainian Women in particular. Many of these stereotypes are far from reality, but some peculiarities of Ukrainian character and life leave their imprints on the character, lifestyle and life values of a Ukrainian Woman. Let's try to understand Ukrainian Women, while keeping in mind that every person is a unique creature.
It is considered that a Slavic Woman can become a perfect wife, that means being loving and tender to their husbands they are kind and caring mothers to the children and good keepers of the home .
When a husband comes home in the evening he finds his house clean, the food prepared for him and a beautiful loving woman playing with children. Isn't it a dream? It happened to become a dream not only for western men but for Ukrainian women as well, because western women became more oriented on the career and Ukrainian men lost certainty in their ability to provide for the future family due to the difficult economic state.Women are also hesitant about taking such serious step as creating a family, being insecure of the possibility to provide their children with good education, healthcare and living conditions. Even finding somewhere to live is a huge problem for a young family in Ukraine. So it's natural that the interest of western men to Ukrainian women has greatly increased during the last few years. And those men that choose to look for a wife in Ukraine get lucky because they manage to win the heart of young beautiful slim trendy and well-educated Ukrainian woman that are dreaming of security, stability and happy family life a good future for their children.
Ukrainian Women and Beauty
On average, young Ukrainian women are slimmer than their western coevals. Ukrainian women are used to preparing food at home and so they have not become the victims of fast food. In addition to this the most of Ukrainian women make use of public transport and walk a lot.
In spite of the comparatively low salaries Ukrainian women spend a lot of money on expensive make-up and clothes. Many of them keep to a diet or go in for sports to stay in a perfect shape. They do so not only to win the hearts and catch admiring glances of men, they think that keeping up with the latest trends in fashion magazines, television and advertising is absolutely necessary to be "compatible" with their female friends.But they have also realized the importance of leading a healthy life-style and having up to date looks. It is considered that a girl who knows how to dress up and attend herself has a lot more chances to get married. Besides many of them learn how to sew or knit from the very childhood because these skills are thought to be of a great demand if one wants to dress up at minimum expenses. But the Ukrainian woman’s ability to sew or to cook is not enough for a successful marriage.
Ukrainian women and clothes You might get amazed at first being out with a Ukrainian Woman with the way they are dressed up. They pay a lot more attention to looks and clothes than European or American women. It is very unlikely that you see many Ukrainian women wearing shapeless T-shirts or baggy jeans. In Ukrainian cities it is not unnatural to see many women wearing high heels and make up and perfumes during the daytime just going to or from work. That is also absolutely normal to wear tight clothes and mini skirts, especially in summer. The clothes is a part of image and sexuality of a Ukrainian woman, and means of attraction.
Ukrainian Women Education and Profession
Good higher education is also very important for a young girl even if she is not planning to work just after the graduation from the University but wants to dedicate herself to the future family and children. Most people in Ukraine consider a university education as being very important. The children go to universities right after school and then Ukraine has a lot of unemployed young professionals. It is amasing how many gratuate as “English' teachers only to end up working on the 'local' market selling clothes Some of the professions stated in the womans profiles can seem quite impressive or sometimes even really misleading. Do not be alarmed! An Ukrainian doctor can have a very good qualification and education and get a paltry salary. But at the same time there is a very little possibility for an Ukrainian doctor to become a doctor in the US or elsewhere. An economist in Russia is not at all the same as in the USA or Europe. More often it's a somebody performing duties similar to those of an book keeper. There is also some misunderstanding with names of profession. A"Manager" seems to be the most frequent profession. There are just too many managers.
The word Manager is not always used correctly.In Ukraine it can be a sales person in charge of a department within a supermarket , someone on reception at a beauty shop is a manager, and also the director's assistant can be called a manager. Statistically the majority of women in Ukraine have got a job. In many cases Ukrainian women even happen to be breadwinners. But look deeper into the reasons and you will find that most women in Ukraine work not for a career but they work to get money. Finances in Ukrainian families with children are often so touch-and-go even with both spouses working that some women do not even use all the unpaid maternity leave to which they are legally entitled because their families cannot afford to live on the husband's salary alone. And in many cases the husband does not work!!
Ukrainian Women and money
The attitude to money on behalf of Ukrainian women may seem unusual to you. A lot of western men are afraid of scammers and that fear creates serious problems in communicating with Ukrainian women. If you really like a girl you shouldn't be afraid to seem too romantic. Send her flowers, candies or presents to show your affection. Of course words are important, but your deeds are the best token of your feelings and we recommend not to send money to ladies you have never met, even if the reason seem cogent enough (illness, travel expenses, internet expenses, small salary etc) There is one more thing that you should know about money and an Ukrainian women. Ukrainian women are accustomed to be the binding force in the family and in most families the women take almost complete responsibility for managing the household (probably because practically all money are spent for food, clothes and home expenses), because the family budget is usually managed by the wife. Unfortunately the constant lack of finance and frequent economical crises haven't taught Ukrainian women to plan a budget, sometimes when there is money it is often spent in a hasty way under the influence of a moments wish or urgent needs. This is one of the most frequent reasons for misunderstanding in international families. You will have to find a happy medium in order not to let your girlfriend use you and at the same time you mustn't seem too 'mean' or 'tight fisted' with money!
