There are tons of dating sites in Ukraine.
The bad news is, most of them are packed full of scammers. You would think we left cheap dating scams in 2012. Rest assured there are still thousands of people looking to make money off of gullible lonely men.
Don’t be one of these guys!
We have a full list of the very best dating platforms for you to meet your Ukrainian girl.
But before that:
We are a website focused on living, dating, and thriving in Ukraine. Guess how many straight girls visit us? Virtually none.
Most of our audience are guys like you.
Lucky for you, Ukrainian girls really are as awesome as they are hyped up to be.
Unlucky for you, you are not the only Western guy trying to hack the post third-wave feminism dating scene by going abroad.
The docile, feminine Natasha could be a ruthless Boris trying to take advantage of that.
And trust me, we have been there and done that.
The part nobody tells you about is when you land in Kiev, and your online girlfriend of 6 months will not pick up the phone.
Or where you send endless gifts and even straight-up cash but she never wants to get serious or even meet you offline.
The saddest thing is that scammers like this prey on men’s emotional vulnerability. Most men are not even that mad about the money. They are hurt and angry because an important emotional bond has turned out to be a complete lie.
But before I give you our safe and effective websites, here is a basic, super common sense rule that I don’t want you to ever break:
Until you meet her, treat her like a stranger.
Yes, I know this is harsh but it keeps you grounded in reality.
You would not send money or expensive presents to a stranger on the Internet, right?
You wouldn’t share your personal information, especially sensitive stuff about work or your family?
You wouldn’t send inappropriate pictures that could be material for blackmail?
That is how you should treat your Natasha until you guys have met up, and discussed your offline future together.
It is not hard to tell which is our favourite of the dating sites in Ukraine. We have done a bunch of articles on that already and time after time Ukraine Date has come on top.
What makes it so great?
Here are three top reasons:
A lot of Western men will tell you there is no need for premium dating sites. Why not do as the locals do? Go on VK (if you are outside the country) or on Tinder (if already in Kiev) and take your pick.
Granted, they have a point. You will never run out of girls on Tinder because everyone and their mom is using Tinder these days.
But how many of the girls on Tinder are interested in a relationship? And out of those, how many are looking to date a Western guy?
For all you know, she might just be looking for a hookup (although this is highly uncharacteristic of Ukrainian women). Even if she is not, maybe your gorgeous Olga does not speak any English at all (super common in Ukraine!), is not into Western men, or will not be willing to relocate should it come to that.
On the other hand, Ukraine Date, being a premium platform, is pretty much inaccessible to local guys.
There is an unspoken rule that men should pay for membership (kind of like how men always pay for the first date), while women retain their free profiles. You can only communicate with other members if at least one of you is a paid profile. Neither men nor women in Ukraine can afford the monthly fee—so you know the girls are interested in foreigners and expecting to meet and travel to Western men.
Yes, that same membership fee that is impossible for locals will seem super low to you.
Since this is a membership-based model, you will be getting the full functionality for a single price.
No hidden fees and surprise extra costs. Ukraine Date has all the perks of premium dating sites in Ukraine but at a much lower price.
Dating sites in Ukraine are full of gorgeous girls. Sadly, not all of them are Ukrainian women looking for a man. As we mentioned already, they could very well be scammers.
Being a large premium dating platform has it’s pros. The biggest one is security.
Free sites simply cannot afford to maintain the same safety standards and requirements for their female members. You will notice that all profiles on Ukraine Date are high-quality.
It’s not because they bought a bunch of stock photos and set up a website. It’s because all the girls are required to submit a certain amount of clear, professional photos and fill out their profiles well.
Which means Ukraine Date has an unparalleled selection of beautiful, relationship-minded girls for you to choose from.
While Ukraine Date is great for newbies, if you want something even more premium, Anastasia Date is the place to go. I won’t lie, it is one of the pricier dating sites in Ukraine. But provided that you are not spending outside of your means, Anastasia Date will not make you broke, but it will get you paired up with a gorgeous Ukrainian lady.
Unlike Ukraine Date, Anastasia has the perk of including other Eastern European nationalities as well.
I know, I know.
You love Ukrainian girls dearly (just as much as we do). But Belarus and Russia are not so far away in value and beauty of their women. Why restrict yourself?
But if you are looking for strictly Ukrainian, Anastasia Date still has so much to offer. The extra money goes a long way in terms of functionality. What is more, Anastasia Date seems to work quicker in my experience. I’m not sure how to explain this, but it’s true. People tend to find what they are looking for faster on Anastasia Date.
Bear in mind that the usual warnings apply. None of the dating sites in Ukraine, no matter how premium and high-security, are completely free of scammers. Stay smart and stay safe.
I know I didn’t speak too kindly of Tinder just a couple of paragraphs ago. And what I said does hold true. Yes, women on Tinder are not as likely to turn into a future relationship, if that’s what you’re after.
Yes, there is a certain degree of uncertainty as to whether you will even be able to communicate at all. But at the end, Tinder still has the sheer numbers that make it one of the best dating sites in Ukraine.
There is a rule to using Tinder in Ukraine, though. And that rule is you should always be the reacher. There is a double meaning to that.
First off, you should reach for a higher value girl than you think you can score.
I am talking above your usual standards, even women that seem ridiculously out of your league. That is because your league is adjusted to Western standards and also because there is a certain degree of desperation that comes with using Tinder as a Ukrainian girl. I’m not saying that’s the case for all, but it is for most. Take advantage of it and be the reacher in the relationship.
Secondly, you should be the one that initiates first.
Ukrainian women will not text you first.
Not on Tinder, not on Facebook, not on Whatsapp or whatever other messaging apps you are using.
Premium dating sites like Ukraine Date and Anastasia Date are a bit of an exception to that. When on Tinder, however, you should always be the one who takes initiative. Otherwise, you will not be getting the best girls.
Update October 2019:
Tinder has fallen off quite a bit in Ukraine. Unfortunately, with all the new worldwide passport features, and Ukrainian women being some of, if not the most, beautiful women in the world…
It means that tons of guys from around the globe are now hitting up the Ukrainian girls on Tinder, flooding the marketplace.
Remember, girls are always going to want to talk to and date with the best man that their beauty allows them to get. The problem is that with dating apps like Tinder, there’s always another guy who could be better. It results in girls being more flaky, having more attitude, and generally just being more entitled.
Yes, Tinder can still be effective, but it’s time to face the facts — it’s simply not as good as it used to be.
Unfortunately, sites like Seeking Arrangement have also risen in popularity here in Ukraine.
If you’re not familiar with what they are, it simply means that girls go on a dating site with the pure intention of finding a sugar daddy; i.e. someone to pay the bills.
The “arrangements” can vary from person to person, but usually it involves some sort of paying to play — meaning prostitution, but on a lower scale. Most people who partake in this kind of dating are in some sort of denial with themselves. The girls say they are looking for a real connection, the guys say they are looking to spoil someone. The only difference is that there isn’t a wad of cash followed by the deed. Instead they go out to dinner, take trips, and do stuff normal couples do — and add the envelope of cash to it.
As far as we know, there aren’t any dating sites in Ukraine dedicated purely to these kind of arrangements.
Simply put, the really rich Ukrainians and oligarchs don’t need these kind of arrangements. They speak the local language, have a wife and kids, and arrange with mistresses on the side the old fashion way.
Doubtful you will find any young and not-rich Ukrainian guys on these sites, either. Just doesn’t make sense for them, as there are plenty of Ukrainian dating sites that offer them better options, plus they have local connections.
No, the sugar dating sites in Ukraine are pretty much just foreigners hitting on Ukrainian girls. Some of them are likely truly wealthy, others are liking faking it, meaning they make maybe $100,000 a year, but that’s a lot for Ukraine.
This also has the downside of making the dating scene overall worse, but it’s something to keep in mind as you’re dating in Ukraine.
Dating sites in Ukraine are getting more and more crowded, as Western interest in local girls rises.
Whichever platform you choose, jump on the bandwagon ASAP. There are still plenty of stunningly beautiful women, waiting to meet you! Don’t forget to share your story here, once you meet some of the girls.
PS: As Ukraine Date is free, I’d recommend starting with it first—and browsing the profiles of the girls on there.
