What Do Beautiful Russian Brides Want?

To be frank, I always think myself: “What do these beautiful Russian brides really want? Why are they looking for men abroad? What is wrong with men in Ukraine or Russia?”

what do the beautiful russian brides want?

And I understood that they are actually looking for the same what any woman looks for and here are 3 factors they are looking for:

1. Security & Stability
Each woman is looking for security in life. Each wants to be loved and cared of. In Russia and Ukraine with the unstable life conditions when parts of countries come and go, it’s hard to talk about any stability, right? This is why 100s of beautiful Russian brides leave the FSU each year with the men from other countries.

2. Self actualization
In Ukraine and Russia it is hard for a woman to find her place. In this kind of society the woman’s role is quite limited and it’s limited to the kitchen and children. In Western World it’s much easier to find the things to do and get successful at. Therefore the Russian brides seek for happiness elsewhere.

3. Normal family
Although the divorce rate everywhere is rising, in Western countries it’s still lower than in Ukraine and Russia. Women here want normal families and Ukrainian men like to drink, they are lazy and they want to have multiple love affairs having so many beautiful women around. Therefore the beautiful Russian brides are looking for men abroad.

We’ve remade the romantic chats window. Now it adapts to the size of your screen and is easier to use both on computers, phones and tablets.

All the main features have remained the same, we just added a good and big one. I’ll tell about this a bit further.

This is how the new chats window looks now:

What is new here:
-    The size of the window will adapt to your screen and it will be comfortable for you to use it on any gadget like iPhone or a smartphone or an iPad;

-    The information about the lady and the chat time has moved to top left corner;

-    Video button and screen has moved to top middle space;

-    Features like taxi, flowers and other are under the “hamburger” menu in the top right corner now. And it looks like this when it’s open:

The appearance of the chat messages has also changed a bit. Now the lady’s messages will have the pink background and your messages will have the grey background. So it will be easier to read them.

The New feature: sending photos in the chats

There’s one big change in the chats: you can send your photos right there now. And a lady can send them to you too.

You can open the photos and discuss them with a lady. And please note, they will also be saved in your Photomanager, so you’ll have them there forever, they won’t be just in the chat. And you can see them in the chats history too.

To send your photo to a lady, please click the “Send photo” icon in the chat window.

And there opens your screen with the photos, just like in your Photomanager.

How to avoid risks when travelling to Ukraine

1. Dining out safely

The first danger foreigners might face while coming to Ukraine, as to any other unknown place, is low-quality food. There are many good places for dining out in Ukraine but bad ones also exist. Of course, you don’t want any complications or health issues when you are on a journey. The only advice we can give is to go to restaurants and cafes with fair name. The list of decent dining places is available in the internet. You can also contact the UFMA Agency for such information. We are ready to advice you only top restaurants where you can enjoy great food for a reasonable prize. Finding the right place to have dinner is even more important when you are on a date with one of the Russian Brides. The chances to make great impression on a lady doubles with the right place. Romantic atmosphere, nice service and delicious meal can make the evening with your date unforgettable and pleasant.
2. Protect your budget.

One of the things you should care bout while going to another country is the currency exchange. It is not a secret that some locals try to deceive foreigners when it comes to money exchange. Never trust a street dealer who offers you an exchange at a very favorable rate. There is a high chance that you won’t get he promised sum and will be openly fooled. Keep your money safe and go through exchange procedure only in the banks. The qualified bank staff will give you an expected polite treatment and make sure that it goes clear. There are many banks in Ukraine and you shouldn’t have any problem exchanging money.
3. Which cab to call?

Guests and visitors of Ukraine also confront the problem of calling the right cab service. Moreover, there is a high possibility that you will meet one of our beautiful Ukrainian girls. She will definitely appreciate if you take care of her way home and get a car for her. Are you familiar with the situation when you want to get to the destination and you don’t know where to call. If not, you are lucky! There are dozens of taxi agencies in any city of Ukraine, but which one to trust yourself in? Try asking the local people for the number or simply contact UFMA. We can share the info about a few reliable cab services which guarantee safety and comfort.
Another way to have it right is to let the hotel you are staying in to call the taxi. It is when you want to leave the residence and go somewhere.
4. My dwelling is my fortress

If you are planning to have to visit Ukraine and stay here for a while, you will need a residence. Out of common expectations, it is a place for relaxation and rest. Sightseeing and long walks around city center do take energy. A nice cozy apartment or a hotel room is the only thing you might want after a long and saturated day. You can rest your body there and contemplate about a wonderful date with one of the Russian Brides. Booking the hotel room is not a problem but renting a house might be quite troublesome. There is a dirty business built on renting houses in any country of the world. Ukraine is not an exception. If you venture to rent a place by yourself, you might stumble across fake agents who know many ways how to extract money from the client and come off clear. The best way to avoid this risk is to rent the checked places or have UFMA Agency book the apartment for you in advance. We know reliable people and have a handful of nice residences to offer.
5. Date only real Ukrainian girls

It sometimes happens that marriage agencies drain money from their male clients and put fake profiles of girls. There are cases when men spend much time and resources on useless searches of something that doesn’t exist. In order not to fall into a pit, register only in the approved dating sites or visit the official page of the UFMA Agency. We show only the checked profiles of women. All of them are serious and seek serious marital relationship. Not only are they beautiful, but have many personal talents and high family values. The gallery of Ladies is open to any visitor. UFMA Agency feels proud of helping people to find their half. It has created many marriages. You can read about it in details on the official site. www.ukrainianfiancee.com

Three principles of long and happy family life

Much depends on the understanding and excepting, readiness to make compromises and care about the partner. Building a family needs ability and wish to give another person happiness, a constant search of the ways that could lead to spiritual closeness with a partner.

Here are three simple but very efficient principles that can make your family life enjoyable and happy. Use them while dating one of our Russian brides.

1. Simply talk it Out!

The most common mistake people make is when they try to hold things they don’t like to themselves. You should keep it in mind: we are all different and we have different values. Let another person know what’s bothering you. It often happens that heroic patience turns out to be a great boom at the end and results in painful scandals. You should remember to talk about the problem in a short time and don’t try to keep it inside. Otherwise, a small snowball will turn with time into a demolishing avalanche. Better, have it sunny and warm, right?;)

But talking about the problem is also an art. You should be careful in the form of expressing it, for it not to sound like a reproach or stingy remark. In fact, it should be let out in a calm way. Try to put emotions aside and look at the situation from a distance. It’s is not a battle where someone takes a victory. Establishing genuine and trusty relations is the main goal here. Stick to the main point and don’t tackle all disagreements at once. And don’t forget about the “golden magic” of a compromise. Put a pinch of a humor into the discussion. Ukrainian girls adore this feature in men.

2. Positive mood and kindness are your best helpers!

It is not a Wow that healthy relationship gives both partners a great charge, enormous inspiration. After spending time together your overall tonus increases, emotions hit the marking “super high” and you are on a positive wave. Seeing or spending time together gives lovers strength to move the mountains. You must know the feeling when everything seems possible to you and you strive for a 100% success, no less.

So, how to keep that chemistry forever? First and foremost, be positive yourself. There is no need to get irritated over small things or trivial drawbacks of your partner. Answer with kindness to a sudden bout of anger, give more understanding and try to keep your own spirit up. Share humor and mutual smiles without a limit. Stay free with each other where your own “voice” is heard and needed. Develop your own personality, attend courses and gain new skills. By the end of the day, you can share impressions and stay interesting for the partner. Which can be one of our gorgeous Ukrainian girls.

3. Shoot for mutual goals!

“Love is not when two are looking at each other, but in the same direction” (Exupery). It’s essential for a good-quality relationship to define mutual goals. Then the unity is strong and has a great chance to withstand the hardship that do happen in love.

Being driven by the same motives, wanting same things makes the couple almost unbreakable. It is a teamwork when support is given every time someone step down. We all seek emotional support and encouragement. Only in this way the connections between all the members of the family will be strong and lasting. Such family is a great environment for bringing up happy children, with right values and future model for their own relationship with opposite sex.

Well, not easy, ha? With practice and right approach you will master these three principle. You will be amazed at the changes it can bring into your personal life. Russian brides will appreciate it.

Three Souvenirs you should bring from Ukraine

Travelling to another country is a fascinating experience. The best way to keep a memory of it is to get traditional souvenirs. They will remind you of that journey and bring up once faded feelings. If you ever happen to be in Ukraine on a business or regular visit, you should drop by one of the souvenir shops and purchase a Ukrainian traditional item.

This is a memory forever. So, what should you bring from Ukraine?
Ukrainian ornaments and souvenirs

You will be struck by the variety of Ukrainian souvenirs: badges, pictures, magnets, broidery, caricatures, statues, cups and plates with Ukrainian ornaments, posters, jewelry, traditional clothes, ribbons and ceramics. They all look attractive and a foreign guest often feels lost when time comes to make a choice. Don’t worry, dear friend. Check the list of three souvenir items which are purely Ukrainian and have no analogues in the world.

1. Be fashionable in Ukrainian embroidered shirt “Vyshyvanka”

Ukrainian Vyshivanka shirt is very beautiful

In the past “vyshyvanka” carried a very deep religious meaning and protected its owner from the evil. That’s why the shirts were trimmed with various ornaments on the sleeves, collar or anywhere where the body was uncovered. Now it is a symbol of Ukrainian rebirth and cultural values. You can see modern Ukrainians wear it on the streets. Many put it on special occasions and big holidays.

Every region of Ukraine has its own peculiar “vyshyvanka” which differ from others by ornament and color gamma. The pattern is characterized by simple geometrical figures (rooted in the ancient Ukrainian mythology) and nature motives. In western Ukraine traditional shirts bear many colors while in some eastern lands they are limited in terms of color. Black and red are the most widely used colors in Ukrainian “vyshyvanka”. Black symbolizes earth, fertility and wealth. And red stands for merriment, love and longevity.

Shirts were embroidered only with Ukrainian women’s hands, thus it possessed a strong emotional charge and symbolized love, loyalty and good. In Kyiv Russ every woman knew many techniques of sawing. It was against principles to buy or sell an ornamented shirt, therefore even the richest Ukrainian women had to make shirts for the family herself.

2. Magic of Ukrainian painted Wooden Spoon

Ukrainian wooden spoons

A wooden spoon is one of the most recognizable traditional items of Ukraine. You won’t believe it but a wooden spoon, unlike a metal cutlery, gives the food gentle exquisite taste and scent. You can never get burnt eating from a wooden spoon.

Back in centuries wooden spoons were of many forms and sizes. They were deep and almost flat, oval and round, dull and sharp. The most widespread were white spoons meaning not painted. The most expensive ones had a carved handle made from fruit trees. Spoons that were carved and had paintings were used only on big holidays. Such spoons are now available as a souvenir.

This souvenir can still be exploited unlike many others. Instead of keeping it on the shelf, you can use it while dining. It is not only beautiful but quite useful for health. A wooden spoon is ecologically clean. No wonder that Ukrainians had ate with wooden spoons and stayed healthy till the very old age.

3.  What do you know about  Ukrainian painted egg “Pysanka”?

Ukrainian painted egg - pysanka

“Pysanka” is an egg painted with wax and paints. It is a symbol of Eater Holiday in Ukraine. In the past “pysankys” were present at all important occasions, such as weddings, childbirth or housewarming celebrations. It was given to those who set for a long journey as an amulet and also symbolized the beginning of a new life. It is interesting to know, Ukrainians see an egg as a symbol of life, universe and God’s creation.

Ukrainian women used only natural colorings withdrawn from nature: leaves, herbs, roots and flowers. The techniques of painting were passed down the generations. A young girl would learn them from her grandmother and would not dare to change it in her lifetime. The patterns usually had a sacred meaning. The symbolism of colors is also of a great importance. The choice of the color often depended on the occasion and a receiver of the gift.
