After I left she spilled tea on it and burned it up, she felt so bad and was afraid I was going to be upset. She then went on to tell me she had been saving for a car one day, but she needed to talk to me she used that money to buy another computer and would not take money from me to pay for the replacement.
I know I have been exposed to the American ways for 45 years and learning the different cultures, which I am liking the core values as a breath of fresh air.
But as Tracker stated above, I am not sure how to read the signs. If she talks only about her advantages and avoids conversations about bad parts of her life for example then it's a bad sign.
I corresponded and talked with a 28 year old Ukrainian girl about marriage and family.
We seemed highly compatible and we just spent 17 days together in Crimea.
Hello - This is my first time on this site and I have already visited the Ukraine in November of 2013. She is also started taking English lessons and I am taking Russian Lessons (Wow talk about a culture lessons) I have a similar experience as Tracker above, but the major differences are I am 45 and she is 34, she has never asked me to pay for things except for a few things that went without saying (dinners, taxi's, interpreter, etc.) normal dating things.
I have met a wonderful lady and we have spent a week together there and have talked almost everyday since I have returned. I did buy her a computer as I know that computers they have there and can afford are old and slow.
I have been in a relationship with a Ukrainian lady for more than three years.
Firstly, the age gap between you is too great and you would be foolish to believe such a romance could endure.
Secondly, I can confirm a reluctance for Ukrainian women to kiss and hold hands in public when the relationship is still in its infancy. Thirdly, I am not aware that there is a cultural expectation that you must bestow gifts upon the family of this girl.
Fourthly if you are dependant upon a translator to communicate with your lady you are severely disadvantaged.
I explained that affection and romance were very important to me as discussed earlier in email and chat.
