How to meet an Eastern European bride in person: 8 Tips
I believe you have met your only one on our site (or are planning to do it) and now you want to meet your Eastern European (Slavic) bride in person. Congratulations!!
While this is the best thing you could ever do. Why? Because it is impossible to build relationships via letters or video-chats with foreign women.
Only a real meeting can truly say if you are a match, if you really like each other, and have chemistry. And now, I would like to share some very important information on what you should expect from your personal meeting and what you should - or by no means shouldn’t do on it!
And I would recommend following the tips provided if you want your meeting to be successful. So let’s not waste time and start.
#1: Don’t expect a Slavic bride to spend 24 hours with you
I understand how excited you are to meet your potential bride and want to spend 24 hours a day with her.
But! Please realize that written communication is not everything for Slavic women,e .g. Bulgarian brides. They do not trust words and believe only their feelings when meeting you in person, looking into your eyes, and talking to you directly.
And at this stage, you are not that close – you are two people who have written to each other, found some common interests, expressed their sympathy, and decided to meet and see what happens next.
You come to have a date with this lady. And don’t expect she will appear at 8 am at the door of your hotel and will accompany you all day long. First of all, women also have jobs and some duties, lots of them have children, so they simply cannot afford that.
Even if you let them know about the dates of your visit 2 months ahead, they are not able to take vacations or some days-off because it is not that easy in their country. The situation with jobs in Ukraine is not perfect so they will need to have unpaid leave which is often unaffordable for them.
Moreover, it may cost them their job at all. So please when you come, realize that you just meet for the first time to get to know each other better and don’t expect a lady jumping into things too quickly!

#2: Don’t insist to spend a date without a translator if she doesn’t speak English
It is great if the lady you choose speaks a bit or even fluent English. In that case, you don’t need a translator and may enjoy communication with each other. But even if a lady is fluent in English, she may not feel comfortable meeting you alone for the first time.
It is not because she doesn’t like you but because women are cautious about western guys and not for no reason.
There are different situations and sometimes, the intentions of some men are not that transparent and pure and women are very afraid of that.
Unfortunately, it happened on our site as well. So if she asks to have a translator with her for the first date, or to take her friend or sister, don’t be offended.
Moreover, if e.g. a Ukrainian bride doesn’t speak any English she will accept your desire to remain just two of you without a translator wrong. She wants to get to know you the soonest and have a full-fledged communication, and she doesn’t want to use a body-language to explain something to you.
Believe me, there is nothing worse than two people sitting in front of each other and not understanding a single word. So don’t insist on spending time without an interpreter while if she is not comfortable, it will only spoil all the impression of your meeting.

#3: Don’t propose to your Eastern European bride on the first meeting
You may have the purest intentions and be extremely excited about meeting your only one. But please recall rule number 1 – this is just your first meeting in reality. Don’t expect her to fall in love or get married you right after it. So attention!
- Avoid telling her you love her on the first meeting!
- Avoid proposing to her on the very first meeting!
Ukrainian, Russian, or any other Slavic mail order brides will think you are not serious if you propose a woman during the first week of meeting each other. It is necessary to meet her for a couple of more times at least to really see if you are a match. Love at first sight happens but not that often so please turn on your common sense!

#4: Pay for her taxi
I have already told you a lot that even if a Slavic woman earns well, she expects a man to carry all the date expenses. Needless to say that a man pays the restaurant, cinema, café bills.
But once your date is over and you want to leave a great impression on her, don’t ask her how much her taxi costs; just insist on paying her taxi back home.
Simply give her a fair amount (when you arrive in her country, you probably already use taxis, so you should know what the average cost of a taxi ride is). Please note that if you come to Kiev, Kharkov, Odessa, the taxi will cost a little more expensive than in other cities there.
This step is not a must! But it will help you make a very good impression and meet her expectations of your dating.

#5: Don’t ask a Slavic woman to stay at her place during your visit
Yes, I believe you have really big hopes and expectations from your first meeting with a Ukrainian or Russian woman.
You took days-off, bought a ticket, and rush 6000 miles to meet her finally! But please be realistic. Ukrainian, Russian and Belarussian women don’t believe in feelings that may arise over the Internet.
They agreed to meet you because you had some communication, found common interests, and have certain sympathy towards each other. They would never meet a man they don’t feel good about. So the fact she likes you is undeniable.
But this meeting is your first date, your first real-life meeting, first talk. And for now, you are almost strangers to each other. I suggest you think of your stay in advance, choose a hotel, and don’t shock your dream woman by such an offer. This will only scare her away.
#6: Don’t speak but act
As you already guessed probably, Slavic women don’t believe your words. They believe only actions and judge what kind of man you are only by what you do!
Of course, it doesn’t mean you should be silent – not at all. Ukrainian, Russian and Polish mail order brides adore when men are intelligent and can support a good top-quality conversation.
But supporting your actions with words is very important. Instead of telling her how loving and caring you are – show it.
When you come to your date, bring some flowers; help her take her coat off, give your hand when necessary. Don’t talk only about yourself, ask how she is doing, how was her day at work, how is her family.
Don’t forget to show your care and your feelings towards her. Your meetings should consist of dialogues, not monologues about yourself.
#7: Don’t insist on intimacy
Due to the cultural differences, lots of men misunderstand how they should behave on the dates.
When they hear Ukrainian and Russian women like alpha-males, they take it literally and start touching women’s knees, grabbing their hands all the time, hugging them, and kissing their cheeks.
Keep in mind that it is a very bad sign on the first date! Women don’t accept and don’t understand why you touch their legs, knees, hands, and everything else. Leave her personal space, you are not a couple yet, so don’t cross that line and move forward slowly.

#8: Look your best
I have talked a lot about it too but this aspect is very important. You want to see a beautiful and elegant lady by your side. So why do you think a lady doesn’t want to see an elegant and handsome man by her side? You probably noticed how women in our streets look like – they wear makeup, their best clothes, they take care of their hair, and wear high heels.

And they do it every day no matter where they go. And if they go for a date, they will try and do their best to look stunning. So I recommend you take care of your look, as well. Do a nice haircut before coming to her country, get a nice perfume, and make sure to wear good and tidy clothes, too.
I am sure you don’t want to fail your first date with a dream lady, so keep in mind your charisma and inner beauty is good but still not enough to win Slavic woman’s heart!
