Going On A Date With Your Ukrainian Bride? Better Read This!

Dec 16, 2007
Going on any date is quite thrilling and exciting, though this excitement doubles when one goes on an international date with a person from another country. Ukrainians have a saying that people judge you first by your looks and deeds and only then do they appreciate you for your IQ. Thus, making an initial positive impression is very important and knowing Ukrainian dating courtesy traditions may greatly assist you in doing so.

In our modern world, many women who come from European counties or USA are quite emancipated. This greatly affects dating courtesy traditions of those countries. However, it is not so with most Ukrainian ladies. Ukrainian ladies are independent and many of them support themselves financially, but they still are quite willing to receive mens' courting and attention. Moreover, they expect to receive it from the men they date. So let us take a look at some of such major Ukrainian dating courtesy traditions.

Now, understanding Ukrainian dating courtesy traditions means understanding your Ukrainian fiancees expectations and meeting them. Lets say, you decide to go out with your lady for a dinner. You pick her up at her place or meet at your hotel, than you go to the restaurant together. First of all she would expect you pay for her ticket in public transportation or to pay the cab driver, that is if you take the cab.

In fact, as you will surely discover, paying for your lady is one of the major Ukrainian dating courtesy traditions. There is one great rule to go by: you pray, I pay. This way you will never make a mistake. It is not because Ukrainian ladies are poor or greedy. Simply, such is the tradition. If a man courts a lady, he has to cover all their dating expenses.

Next, she would always expect you to show your courtesy by opening up doors for her, by letting her enter facilities first or by offering her a hand when she goes out of a cab or public transportation. At the restaurant she would expect you to help her get seated by moving her chair, etc. All such things are essential for Ukrainian dating courtesy traditions, because even though Ukrainian ladies are considered to be smart and independent, they still like to be very feminine and with great pleasure receive all such male courtship.

As I have already mentioned above, a lady would expect you to pay for her at the restaurant, cinema or theatre, etc. In addition, giving her small gifts would also be appropriate. If it is not some big event, you are celebrating, than you may stick with some flowers and candies.

However, be careful what flowers you select. In Ukraine you always give your fiancee an odd number of flowers, because the bouquets with even number of flowers are given for the burials only!

Another important thing about flowers is their colour. Do not give your lady yellow flowers, unless you know for sure that it is her favourite colour. In Ukraine, yellow is the colour of departure and separation. If your lady is superstitious she may believe it to be a bad sign and consider your relationships to be doomed for bad luck!
