Since the fall of the Soviet Union the competition between Russians and Ukrainians has really heated up, because the newly independent Ukrainians have to come up with ways to differentiate themselves from the Russians.The competition between the Ukraine and Russian even carries over to the international dating industry.
In some places like Japan or China one of the gut wrenching challenges of international dating is meeting the family, because it is likely that most girls' families will oppose them marrying a foreigner.
However, in the Ukraine if you play you cards right the family will probably be on your side.
Lots of girls on any decent Ukrainian dating site have toned abs and mention the gym or fitness in their profiles. Furthermore, Ukrainian women are very fashion conscious.
Walk down Kreschatik Avenue in Kiev, and you'd swear you were in Paris or New York from the fashionable, smartly dressed girls you'll see.
It's a sad truth but many Ukrainian men suffer from excessive consumption of alcohol, and with it comes a lot of sadness, abuse, and violence for their spouses.
