FEEDBACK ABOUT TRIP TO UKRAINE FROM ARTHUR (USA)

June 26, 2019 by

Welcome to Ukraine Brides agency. Here we are always happy to share our latest news with our precious clients.

Recently, our client Arthur from the USA has visited Ukraine and was glad to share his experience with UBA service.

– Dear Arthur, we are glad to see you in Ukraine. And we would like to ask a few questions about Ukraine, your experience and about your trip in general. At the beginning could you please introduce yourself and tell us how did you know about our site?

– Arthur: Well, I’m from the United States (I know it was difficult to guess) from Colorado. I found about this site through the friend I met in Kyiv in 2015 and we kept in touch by email.  I guess I won’t say his name; I know you know who he is. He’s been in your office. He told me about ukrainebridesagency.com. However, being sceptical especially in the level of scams that we are here about. He says that these guys are really legitimate, these guys are real. I dot online and look at this and say hey let me go ahead. Give this a chance, see how it works out.

– Thank you. And is it your first trip to Ukraine or you were here before?

–  Arthur: I’ve been to Ukraine second time. My first time in Ukraine was in 2004 and 2006. Generally saying, it’s mostly vacation leisure. I wasn’t necessary here in Ukraine for a lady. This is more explore thing as I like traveling. And there was a long gap when I was not traveling to places. So my last time in Ukraine when I come back was in June 2015. And I came back several times since then. And especially being on Ukraine Brides and being working outside of the word it is more easy for me to fly to Ukraine and then go back to the United States.

– As I told you before a lot of our clients do worry whether t is safe to come to Ukraine. Could you please share some information, do you feel safe here?

– Arthur: Oh yes, I was kidnapped in the office =) Kidding. I didn’t have any problems. The only thing is I quickly learned is to take taxi drivers. But have never had anybody try to rob me. ‘Course, I mean I’m careful driving anyways. It doesn’t matter what city you are going to in the world every city has its not good parts. But I’ve never had any issues. I’ traveled all over the Ukraine I’ve been to many cities in Ukraine.

– And according to your experience, I see that you are an experienced traveler, and as you told you was here several times – What do think about Ukraine? Could you please share your feelings, your thoughts about our country, what people you met?

– Arthur: People are friendly. I met some coming to Ukraine, I met some a bit of friend. Course some friends I lost. I’ve made some Russian friends, ‘course I’ve been to Russia too. I just met some good friends that I keep in touch with. In fact, some of them I know living in the United States now. I know one lady, she moved from Poltava and she is a friend, she’s now living in the United States with her husband in Montana. I keep in touch with a lot of people. It is easy here to make friends. People here in general very friendly.

– Could you please tell which of our services you have tried? And which of them you like and which you think are not so interesting? Or you would like to suggest something to improve our work?

– Arthur: I’ve used pretty much almost all the services or maybe not all of them, because I don’t like letter writing. In chats, it limits, because you really can build a personality you are not. The video chat I’ve done before. I mean I’m not really can much on video chat, less is Skype you can use and start again. It’s being expansive starting video chat for hours on in. What are the other services? In fact, I travel on my own. I know there are travel services for those who have never been to Ukraine which I would suggest. Somebody has never been to Ukraine and there are skeptical. I was suggesting using Ukraine Brides travel agency – Simply Travel. In fact, I would just spend some time on the request to get the price, but I’ve never done this. The reason is I’ve really experienced traveler. I usually can make some pretty good deals; I mean the less expensive road. But I would suggest for those guys not to waste their nerves on how to get come to Ukraine, they don’t know anything about the language, about the culture. I would suggest for users to use Simply Travel. Don’t think about everything. They can meet you at the airport, they can seat you in a hotel. Somebody will need a local sim card for the phone or if you what they will get you a phone.

– And what about gifts? Have ordered a gift for a lady? Maybe you like delivery?

– Arthur: Yeah, I like the delivery. I did do a gift, not too many times because I don’t really like doing gifts to somebody I don’t know. I could learn that through experience. I have to meet somebody first before I start doing gifts. My recommendations to those who want to send a gift to the lady they have not met yet – Make it simple, don’t go overboard. Because you may meet that lady and she’s not what she is. Cause I even sent a gift for a lady that I brought letters to and even did a video chat with and it even did not work out.so I would suggest to play a safe and wait to meet the lady then she forgets.

– Some of our clients are just unable to come to Ukraine for a meeting after three or four months of communication. And they are really interested in a lady and they want to show that “I appreciate you”, “I’m interested in you” and we also advise them to send to the lady some small gift: some flowers, some chocolate, like this. Something very simple, just to show your attention: “I remember about you”, “I care about you”.

Could you please give advise to our customers how should they act on the site to get success? For example, what did help you more: messages, video chat, real meeting? What was better for you and what would you recommend to our clients?

– Arthur: It’s a hard question. In order, somebody has a success with the lady on a site? I would say first of all for me it should be realistic. If you are sixty don’t think you going to get twenty y. o. It may happen but such cases are pretty rare. I would say I start of a small first like see a lady you might be attractive to. First, send a nudge. See if she nudges you back or reacts on you back. If you don’t hear anything, give her a few days maybe even a week. Send her another nudge, whit a couple of days. If you don’t hear anything, then send an introduction letter. To should introduce yourself to the lady. And if you don’t hear anything after that then probably she may haven’t the interest. She might be kind and nice and send you some kind of respond saying you not the gentleman she’s looking for. I’ve never had such a situation. Usually ladies… they respond… I got some kind work out of there. You can really go there and find the lady you like and book a chat. So she will get a note you really want it, so or book a meeting. If you just book meet with the lady she will just think “this guy just booked a meeting, this guy is serious if he wants to meet”.

– That is really good because a lot of our clients they don’t know how to start, what to start with, send a message, or maybe an introduction or book a chat or what to do. And this is really helpful advice. So, how to go to your dreams step-by-step? How to meet your lady match, then maybe an introduction, then maybe a video chat?

– And another thing is too that a lot of times that I got the case that you just get bombarded with letters and messages. I mean, I have and I just lose track cause a lot of times I can’t be on the Internet all the time, cause I got to work and do things. So, I lost track of the ladies I was interested in and a couple of months later I realize “Oh, this is the lady I really wanted to get to know”. So, in a lot of cases, you probably won’t have sent a message or something, cause a lot of ladies will send you messages.

– Yeah, you can just check the messages from these ladies, check their profiles and choose one or few of these ladies who might be a good match for you.

– Yes, and kind of on a personal note to is when I get so many letters from the ladies and from somebody that I am not really interested in, I kind of feel bad because of that. Well, I can be kind and write her back but it can get expensive though if you got to write back to every lady. So then, I really talking to somebody else right now, but thanks, I mean I do not want the lady to think that I’m ignoring her.

– We have such a button…

– Oh, do you?

– Yes, we have it.

– I did not see that.

– You can, when you open a message from a lady – you have a few options there, and you can send her a message that you are not interested in her right now in such a way that “I’m sorry, but I’m in communication with another woman and I wish you good luck in your search”. And this message is free.

– Oh, okay. See, I never knew that, that is new for me.

– We are always here, as you know we work 24/7, so many of our clients can contact us via LiveChat, Viber, WhatsApp, Skype or email. And it can be even a simple question, any questions – we will answer it in 24 hours after receiving. So, if you just wondering how you can reject the lady’s message without paying for it – you can contact us and ask it. We will answer.

– Okay.

– And how do you think what is the best age difference to create a strong and happy family?

– And that’s kind of a judgment call, I would say. For some people maybe 10 years, maybe the most. For some people it may just be 5 years, for some, it’s like 15-20 or more years. I would just remember that the bigger the age gap the more difference they probably going to have, especially when you get to the generation gap 20+ years. And we talking of generation gap when your goals going to be different from her goals, she is going to want kids, you are going to be older – you already have kids, maybe they are already gone. And she going to want to start a family in most cases. So, I would just keep that in mind. My advice is to be real.

-Yeah, that’s right because it depends on the person and his or her views because sometimes the lady in her thirties’ have a mind of the lady in 20. And sometimes the lady in 20 has mid of the lady of 35 years old. So, yeah, that’s right, it depends on the person that’s first and also, you have to be realistic, that’s a good idea.

– I kind of notice that too. Lady that in her 20ies’, usually, I think different from the ladies in their 30ies’ or 40ies’.

– What do you think of that Ukrainian ladies that you have already meet? Either are they intelligent? How do they look like? Are they beautiful in their age? What do you think about them?

– Oh, they are great, very smart. The lady that I had a date last night – she has 2 degrees, very smart, beautiful and she has some good goals and hard-working. So, I mean I was impressed. Maybe some gentlemen had some bad experience with other ladies, but this lady that I’ve seen – she was a really nice, really kind, mature, good character.

– And one last questions, why did you decide to search for your woman in Ukraine? What attracts you in Ukrainian ladies?

– I get that question a lot, you know don’t you stick with American girls? First of all, I’m always traveling, so a lot of times I’m not even home in the United States. And, so I’m always moving around. My job, you know, inquires me to do that. So, it is difficult, to begin with, to meet American women in general. I meet more foreign women than do American women. American women, their mentality is more progressive, they are more interested, not all of them, there are some good ones, but a lot of them are more interested in a career, not really interested in a family. And for the Ukrainian women are the polar opposite. They are like very interested in family. Sure, they are great hard-workers too and they care about their family and they work and I consider them probably in general more responsible in many cases than Western women.

– Thank you for your time, for your answers. It will be very helpful for our clients and also, us. Thank you very much.

This is great when clients are honest and open-minded people who are happy to share with us, their experiences and appreciate our assistance.

We would love to share with you more feedbacks on our blog

Acceptable Lies on a First Date

June 5, 2019 by
Man and woman on a date

As a general rule, dishonesty is never encouraged in dating. Well, it does apply in every aspect of our lives. Whether it is your relationship with your parents, friends, significant other or boss, telling lies is a big no-no! However, there will always be times when you’d wish you said something else or probably kept certain things to yourself. Why? Because many times, the truth leads to trouble – trouble which could have been entirely avoided if you told acceptable lies.

Lies, whether they’re the white variety or the kind that come from a bad place, have corresponding repercussions. So when do lies become acceptable? When are you allowed to be less than little honest? For valid reasons, telling lies on a first date is justifiable as long as it’s only temporary and they are not too large. Otherwise, you might find yourself losing that one shot at finally finding the one you’ve been waiting for all because you lied. 

So what are the acceptable lies you can tell on a first date?

Your name

No, this isn’t permission to adopt a new identity. You can’t go from being an Emily to introducing yourself as Charlotte. If you’re looking for a hookup, that’s completely understandable and acceptable. However, if the reason you’re even dating in the first place is to end up in a relationship, it’s an absolute no-no.

What this means is you don’t have to give them your full name. You don’t even have to tell them your given name. If your parents named you Emily, it’s fine if you introduce yourself by your nickname Emma.

So, why is lying a little about your name advisable? It’s because there’s no guarantee that your date will go well or will lead to more dates. For safety purposes, use your nickname. That way, you can avoid creeps who will definitely stalk you online once they get the chance to.

Your address

Lying about your address is also suggested for your safety. You don’t want to run the risk of your horrible date showing up at your door completely unannounced, with a bouquet of roses and chocolates and an apology for insulting you on your first date. Chances are that many of the first dates won’t lead to second, third, fourth, or fifth dates. So, don’t give away your address just yet unless you want unwelcome visitors turning up at your door.

Lying about your address isn’t permission to fake your identity, as well. Don’t tell them you live in an upscale neighborhood just because you want to impress them or feel superior.

Your five year plan

This isn’t a job interview so there’s no need to let your date know where you see yourself five years from now. Yes, your ultimate goal may be to find a loving and happy relationship. However, telling your date that you want to be happily married and become a parent to adorable kids isn’t going to fool them into thinking that you’re insanely attracted to them. Remember this is a first date and not a marriage proposal.

Your culinary preferences

Allergies are understandable and are one of the things that you should never lie about. So, if he offers you a bite of his rotisserie chicken, say no, instead of politely tasting his food. But don’t forget to offer an explanation. Instead of lying to them about how you dislike the texture and taste of chicken, just tell them that you’re allergic to chicken. Trust me. Even if you bring antihistamine with you, it won’t work like magic and prevent you from having allergic reactions.

Your exact job title

No, don’t lie about your job. Don’t say you’re a model when you’re a primary school teacher. Again, this is a date, not a job interview. Instead of telling them what you do for a living, tell them the things you like about the industry you work in.

Your annual salary

This is pretty self-explanatory. Don’t tell them how much you make. Be modest and don’t brag or complain about how much you get paid. First dates aren’t a suitable time to give them a sneak peek of your bank account.

Your thoughts upon seeing their profile

This is applicable when you’re dating someone you met through online dating. Yes, you believe in love at first sight. But you know better than to date someone just because they’re attractive.

Their profiles probably contain a little description of their personality or, at least, how they see themselves. If you found them a little boring and archived their profile to narrow down your choices, but later decided to give them a chance, that’s okay. But don’t give them a detailed narration of your step by step process when selecting who you want to date. Besides, it’s just not polite.

Your dating history

In this day and age, it’s totally okay to go on as many first dates. The logic behind it is you don’t want to miss out on possibly the love of your life. If the night before, you went out on a date with someone else, your current date doesn’t need to know. Exclusivity is decided upon after a few dates.

Your current life state

First dates are meant to be fun. This isn’t your support group where you air out every bit of your dirty laundry for everyone to see. Or even if you met your date in the aforementioned support group, it still isn’t advisable to talk about your life dramas on a date. Whining about life takes the fun and romance out of dates. Show a positive attitude, that’s more attractive.

How much you’ve enjoyed their company

So, the night comes to a close. By now, you’ve probably formed an opinion about your date. If you want to see them again, it’s because you’ve enjoyed the time you’ve spent with them. If you can’t wait to leave that place, it’s because they’re just not the type you’re looking for.

And there’s nothing wrong about that. However, that’s still not a license to tell them that you’ve had the absolute worst time. Politeness can go a long way. Who knows? You might meet them again under different circumstances.

Flattery

Flattering someone or making them feel good about themselves doesn’t always have to be based on a lie. However, sometimes it does. Telling your date they look good or laughing at a corny joke can be acceptable lies on a first date. Regardless of what form it is, a little flattery can go a long way. 

Family relationships

There’s no such thing as a perfect family. Nobody comes from a perfect home. There will always be issues but that isn’t something that should really be discussed on a first date. Avoid talking about your emotional baggage but there’s no need to make up an entire lie. What you can do is to breeze past questions that are a little too personal or emotional, especially when it concerns your relationships with your family members. Save it for the succeeding dates when you two are already comfortable with each other.

Your past relationships

If things work out between you and your date, you will eventually learn about each other’s relationship history. However, first dates aren’t the perfect time to talk about it. Take it easy on the oversharing. In the meantime, just tell them that things didn’t quite work out in the past but there’s no need to let them know how you had your heart broken. At least, not now.

Date location

Some people put a lot of effort into planning a first date. So when your date brings you to a restaurant you’ve tried before, you don’t have to let them know you came there a couple of years ago. Otherwise, you’ll be deflating their confidence and burst their excitement.

It’s also the same when your date has surprised you with an activity you didn’t entirely expect. It won’t hurt to tell them it was a lovely idea even if you don’t think it is.

That you share similar interests they do

So maybe you want to have a second or third date perhaps, but you have no idea about the recent movie they are talking about. And since you’re also into movies, it wouldn’t be bad if you lie a little and tell them you’re looking forward to seeing that movie, too. Who knows, it might help you get a next date at the movies?

How much you’ve stalked them

Thanks to social media, we now have the power to do a little research about someone before meeting them in person. However, even if you’ve already checked their photos, found out more about their interests and know the history of their relationships, be sure not to spill it during your date. Be careful not to drop a hint that you’ve done your research as it might creep them out. Just keep asking questions to sound interested and clueless. Besides, there’s so much more to learn about a person besides the information found on their social media.

How much you drink

If you’re hanging out at a bar on your first date, the best thing to do is to lie about how much you like to drink. No matter how high your alcohol tolerance is, it’s never a good idea to make that known during your first date. Just keep that information to yourself because you don’t want them to think you’re alcoholic or unstable.

How you feel about them

While there are unsuccessful first dates, there are amazing dates, too. However, even if you really enjoyed your time with your date and look forward to seeing them again, you shouldn’t make it obvious. It’s okay to thank them and let them know you’ve had a great time. But that’s it. Do not overdo it and avoid making them feel you got attached too easily. It might just push them away.

First dates are a perfect time to get to know someone better and that is why honesty and truthfulness are expected. However, to make sure you stay away from trouble and help you score a chance at a second date, telling the acceptable lies in this list would be totally fine.

8 First Date Tips Backed By Science That Will Make Your Date Great

April 13, 2019 by
Couple on a first date

You remember the last date you went on, don’t you? The scintillating conversation. The secluded, moonlit beach. The waves crashing between each other’s feet. And the way you looked into one another’s eyes and knew, with no uncertainty, that you were destined to be soulmates.

Of course… that didn’t actually happen. In fact it was more likely a series of extended and awkward pauses in a crowded restaurant that you were simply dying to end before embarrassing yourself any further.

The truth is, you’re not a loser who’s unlucky in love. You just may be approaching dating from your own personal biases and expectations. Add in the nerve-wracking dilemma of planning the perfect first date and you have a recipe for a romantic natural disaster.

So what does make the perfect first date? Believe it or not, you might find it in the least sexy place—science. Don’t believe us? Here are some science-backed first date tips that will take that date from unnerving to unforgettable in just eight easy steps.

First Date Tip 1: Reframe Your Mind

No, we’re not suggesting you try to inflate yourself with all manner of unreasonable self expectations. Quite the opposite, in fact. What we’re suggesting is to reevaluate yourself through self compassion.

Kristin D. Neff of the University of Texas defines self-compassion as “consisting of three main components: self-kindness versus self-judgment, common humanity versus isolation, and mindfulness versus over-identification.” But how does this relate to dating?

It helps encourage a feeling of general connection with another based on honest evaluation and empathy. Self compassion may be its own reward; but it also means forgiving yourself based on previous first date experience. Which leads to confidence—perhaps the sexiest trait any of us can hope to have.

First Date Tip 2: Body Language—It’s More Than What You Say

No matter how stimulating the conversation may be, body language reveals more than mere words. In fact, it’s a direct mirror into how you’re really feeling. And when it comes to a first date, it’s critical.

A 2008 study from the Behavioural Science Institute in the Netherlands discovered that mutual attraction tends to be based on the ability to mirror one another’s behaviour. At the same time, these non-verbal cues can often reveal just how we’re feeling. Subtle hints such as folding your arms and crossing your legs reveal nervousness while leaning in suggests both interest and intimacy. Which isn’t to suggest that if your date is tapping their feet excitedly during a first date it’s an indicator of disaster. It just means it might be a good idea to change the topic if you’d like it to end successfully.

First Date Tip 3: Be Prepared To Talk About Anything But The Weather

Think small talk and corny jokes are the perfect ice breaker? Think again—at least if your date’s female. Studies have shown that women are more attracted to dates who spark conversation topics that show curiosity and intelligence, not idle chit chat.

But for many of us, the concept of finding deep, stimulating first date conversation topics is more of a challenge than trying to plan a perfect date. Luckily, Arthur Aron of the Interpersonal Relationships Lab at Stony Brook University compiled a series of 36 questions designed to help build a deeper connection between two people. Among them:

●        If you could wake up tomorrow having gained one quality or ability, what would it be?

●        What does friendship mean to you?

●        What would constitute a perfect day for you?

●        For what in your life do you feel most grateful?

First Date Tip 4:  Location, Location, Location

Remember, it’s a first date. Not a marriage proposal. Don’t worry about that midnight stroll on the beach or a picnic under the stars just yet. In fact, forget them altogether. Rushing headfirst into the perfect romantic scenario is a sure sign that you’re trying too hard to impress.

Instead, consider a relatively neutral location—preferably someplace neither of you have been before. Coffee shops and restaurants are ideal (avoid nightclubs on account of noise and distractions.) Remember, you’re still getting to know one another. Interpersonal chemistry is crucial to your first date, and it can only thrive if there’s as little an amount of preconceived biases as possible.

First Date Tip 5: Opposites Really Do Attract…

Depending on how opposite you are! If your date has an entirely different set of values and beliefs than yours—and by different, we mean violently opposed to—there’s a very strong chance that it will simply set the stage for utter disaster. However, if you find their personality traits are entirely different than yours, you may find them to be not only endearing but perfectly complementary. Just ask Robert Levenson of the University of California, Berkeley.

In a 2007 study, Levenson studied long term marriages and found that greater overall personality similarity predicted a higher degree of dissatisfaction in marriages, in contrast to a higher degree of marital success being linked with personality differences in many areas. So if you’re spontaneous and they’re analytical… they just might be the yin to your yang.

First Date Tip 6: You’ve Got 5 Minutes—Use Them Wisely

Our brains tend to be soft-wired for short attention spans. And while it can be argued that this may be the result or the cause of digital culture, there’s a strong chance mutual attraction is established within the first 30 seconds of meeting someone as a result of hormonal chemistry, according to Rutgers University anthropologist Helen Fisher.

For many of us, making the impression of being sexy, interesting or appealing within a brief five minute introduction is going to present a challenge. But the fact is, no matter how boring or dull you may find yourself, you’ve got a story. Use it to captivate, not denigrate.

First Date Tip 7: Positive Thoughts, Positive Outcome

Like breeds like. Pessimism breeds cynicism. And cynicism breeds mistrust. But optimism breeds confidence and almost irresistible magnetism.

In a 2010 study, over 2,000 men were provided with photos of women, along with information about their personalities, both positive and negative traits. Researchers discovered that the group given a list of positive traits found a wider variety of women attractive overall.

So try to smile on that first date. Even if it’s forced.

First Date Tip 8: There’s A Thin Line Between Confidence And Arrogance

Confidence is sexy. Beyond sexy. It shows security. Stability. And according to a 2015 study published in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, researchers found the more confident a person was considered, the more likely members of the opposite sex were to perceive them as a desirable dating candidate.

But the downside to confidence? Arrogance. Empathy is considered just as equally valuable—and there’s no “I” in empathy. Remember the first tip about self compassion. It establishes connection. And connection is never a one way street.

If you’re ready to take the plunge in online dating and find a potential match, please feel free to visit Ukraine Brides Agency.

HOW TO AVOID SCANDALS

March 10, 2019 by


 

scandal

The most difficult period of any, even very strong, the relationship is conflict. As it’s known, that a peak and a very unsightly part of the conflict is the scandal, in which both sides pass to individuals and can fall into the heat of discussion to direct insults aimed at each other

Of course, both men and women bring arguments in their defense during the conflict, but these arguments do not always work. The fact is that women and men assess the arguments of the opposite side in different ways. We have some useful tips on how to avoid escalating disputes and quarrels in scandals.

  1. LOOKING IN THE EYES

Most women and men do not want to settle disputes through passive communication like SMS, Viber or any social networks. People are ready to tell each other absolutely everything, even what they do not really think behind the back. Direct communication, in the opinion of the majority, is much more conducive to the reign of peace and tranquility.

  1. DO NOT SAY THESE PHRASES

There are certain phrases, the utterance of which can easily turn any conflict into a scandal. And although these phrases themselves are not offensive or so, and women and men in the majority claim that the use of certain words can lead them out of balance. For the majority, these the phrases are: “You do not understand!” And “Calm down!”.

  1. AVOID SENSITIVE TOPICS

This is the most difficult of all that can be. Here we mean, not the themes as they are, but the charges associated with these topics. Women are not able to bear when a partner accuses them of squandering or in poor housekeeping. Think before you speak.

  1. JOINT WORK ON CONFLICT RESOLUTION

Anyway, the conflict cannot last forever. Sooner or later it needs to be finished. Men feel that they are more inclined than women to compromise during disagreements, however, women believe that twice as often as men are able to admit they are wrong.

25 First Date Ideas with a Russian Woman

December 15, 2018 by
First date


Ever wondered why first dates are important? Going on a first date is crucial as it improves one’s chances to find a relationship. First dates give us the chance to make a good impression on our date. While first dates are fun and exciting, they can be pretty daunting, too. It’s like a make or break kind of thing. It’s either you make it successful or you mess it up. It’s imperative for a man to exert the effort to make their first date special and memorable.

If you wish to win the heart of a Russian woman, here are some of the unique first date ideas you may want to try.

Night picnic while stargazing

Going for a picnic might not sound uncommon. Consider adding a little twist to it by doing stargazing at the same time. Do the picnic at night and bring some food and wine. Then enjoy a nice conversation under the moon and stars.

Indulge in your favorite ice cream

Who says first dates always have to be formal? Indulge in your favorite ice cream flavors. You get to know each other better based on your food preferences.

Visit a food fair

Food brings people closer together. Eating is also an excellent bonding activity. So, why don’t you bring your Russian date to a nearby food fair to discover new bites together?

Take a coffee walk

Most people choose a café or restaurant as a venue for their first date. Make it a little different and unique by taking a coffee walk instead. Rather than enjoying your favorite cup of joe in a cozy café, you can walk around the neighborhood or in a nearby park. It’ll feel as if you’re going on a mini adventure!

Try some outdoor activities

Activities like hiking, biking or running are great first date options if you both like the outdoors. Not only will these activities keep you fit. They are also a perfect way to connect and get to know each other better.

Watch the sunset

Who doesn’t want a romantic first date? Invite your date to watch a beautiful sunset at a nearby beach. Witnessing such a beautiful and stunning view is more than enough to make any woman’s heart melt on a first date.

Sing at a karaoke bar

If you and your date both have a penchant for music and singing, then going to a karaoke bar for a first date would be a perfect idea!

Visit a flea market

Visiting a flea market may not sound like a typical and conventional first date. But, this idea may be excellent for modern Russian girls. Most women love to shop and they would be happy to have someone around to keep them company.

Go to a concert

Heading to a concert for a first date is a great option. You can enjoy great music while spending a good time together. Don’t forget to grab some food or drinks before going straight to the concert. This will give you the chance to have a little conversation. You’ll be more comfortable with each other’s company.

Go to the beach

You can’t miss the beach when talking about first date ideas. Relax under the sun or take a romantic stroll by the shore when the sun begins to set.

Go to an amusement park

Nobody’s too old for a ride at the amusement park. So go ahead and visit one nearby. Try out the most exciting rides and scream at the top of your lungs together. This kind of date is going to be something your Russian date will never forget!

Visit an art gallery

Art galleries are usually quiet places. They are an interesting place to visit on a first date if you both have an eye for artistic pieces.

Get competitive at an arcade

Act like a kid once more and compete against each other at some of your favorite arcade games! Not only is it fun and exciting. It will pave the way to conversations reminiscing about your childhood memories.

Buy a new book

If your Russian date is head over heels in love with books, a bookstore would be her heaven on earth. Take a trip to the nearest one and buy her any book she finds interesting.

Take a trip to the dog park

If you and your date both love dogs, taking a trip to the dog park would be an excellent first date idea. Pet as many dogs as you can and enjoy a fun-filled day playing with your furry friends.

Take a class together

Do you and your Russian date have a common passion? Do you both love cooking or yoga? If so, spend your first date by taking a class together and bond over a shared passion.

Go for a breakfast date

First dates don’t always have to be dinner dates.  A breakfast date at a nice and cozy place would be an excellent idea too!

Get spooky at a haunted house

Doing something spooky on a first date may be the last thing you’d think of for a first date. It’ll be fun and exciting especially when you make it through to the end.

Cheer for your favorite teams on a sport together

Do you have a favorite team on football or basketball? Why don’t you watch a game together on your first date? The victory is going to be sweeter when shared with someone.

Take on an escape room challenge

Escape rooms have a plethora of variations but they are all fun and exciting. Solve mysteries and look for clues together while you try to connect and get to know each other better. You will enjoy the challenge especially when you have finally found your way out!

Learn something new at the same time

What is that one thing you both haven’t tried doing before? Is it baking or bread making? Is it wall-climbing or surfing? Whatever it is, it’s never too late to learn something new. And it is going to be more fun when you do it together.

Test your skills at bowling

Bowling is a perfect activity for a first date especially if you are still a bit shy to talk the entire time. It doesn’t matter if you’re a pro or a beginner. It’ll be okay to laugh at yourselves if you’re both awful at bowling.

Do an act of kindness

Who says first dates always have to be all about the two of you? Your date can become even more meaningful when you do an act of kindness. Options like volunteering at a community event or visiting an animal shelter.

Go on a spontaneous road trip

Going on a spontaneous road trip is a fun way to get to know each other. Get in the car, hit the road and see where you end up!

Get a makeover

Pampering yourselves on a first date is something your Russian date will love. Book an appointment at a salon and bond while you both relax and get pampered.

 

Who says you should always stick to the traditional dinner dates during a first date?
