Kiev Dating - Welcome To Reality

Aug 17, 2007
Many people decide to make a short tour in Ukraine and to meet those who they have seen only on pictures and on the phone. Going to a foreign country however can be a challenging and exciting experience.

Borispol airport in Kiev is relatively small compared to other international airports like Vienna or even Budapest. However people are friendly and will help you find your way among the piles of luggage and passengers, passing across signs of Welcome to Ukraine.

If you booked your trip with an agency, ask for transfer from the airport to your hotel. If you are organizing this by yourself, the best will be to take a taxi to the city center. It is some 40 minutes from the airport and if you are good in negotiations you can discuss the price with the taxi driver and reduce it from the initial $40 to $20 or less.

You may have noticed that Ukrainians use the Cyrillic alphabet and this makes it extremely hard for foreigners. For example the letter H is read as N, the letter C is read as S, the letter B is read as V or the letter P is read as R. There are many examples of people who often mix the Cyrillic and the Latin letters and these results in funny situations.

Do not get frustrated by the fact that you do not know anyone or you can not read and understand a single line. If you ask politely soon you will see that many people actually speak English or another foreign language and they will do their best to help you.

It is good to have a small schedule for your meeting in Kiev. You are there to enjoy the city and meet those who have conquered your heart so far. Meet one or two women only - our advice is to be very balanced when you go to Ukraine.

Do not try to see as many girls as possible because this will have negative effects on you. You will be in a hurry all the time and soon you will get nervous and instead of spending the time with your date, you will run from meeting to meeting. This is exhausting and will not give any results.

During the meeting, both you and your date should feel comfortable. Select a place for dinner which is recommended by other people or where your date would feel fine. Do not invite the woman to your hotel room. This will be accepted as an offer for something which is neither polite nor appropriate. Hotel lobbies are bad idea too.

The best way to select a good place for meetings is to search the net for restaurant reviews in Kiev, which suit your taste and needs. Some of the popular places are Cafe Jam and Coffee House - both are suitable cafeterias for first meetings. Le Cosmopolite is an elegant restaurant with fair prices (though not cheap) and good service.

McDonalds has its Kiev branches and the service and the menu are standard. Many local people do not like the food in McDonalds because the local cuisine is different and a hamburger is not real solution for a dinner. Not recommended.

If your Kiev date feels like dancing, you can invite her to a dance club. There are a few good ones in Kiev. Freedom Club is part of a big entertainment complex and it is relatively expensive. Moda Bar is another place for nightlife, the music varies and sometimes there perform local bands.

Whatever your fancy, enjoy your time in Kiev. It's an amazing, cosmopolitan city.
