I am going to Ukraine for the first time next month. Can someone summarise what are the main thigs I should be on a lookout for, so that I can "blend in" more easily?

I would love to hear back from you on your trip. I have been debating on going there myself and have wondered the same thing myself. I hope all went well for you!

I too what like to hear how everything went. I know when I have visited, it was like a whole new world but I found myself easily adapting to their customs. I quite enjoyed it.

I am not sure I can give you any advice outside of just not acting like a buffoon! haha Just be yourself and try not to take pictures of everything. I think a lot of people find that annoying.

For anyone wondering, I thought I would still answer this as well. The best way to blend in is to just have general background knowledge of the area you will be staying in and to not act like you have never been there before. Not everyone is a fan of someone overly excited to be seeing their home.

I agree with this. You don't want to just go somewhere and have no knowledge of customs and what native people do on a day to day basis.

I never heard of someone asking this before. To me, you would want to stand out to get attention from women. Not in a bad way but in a good way ya know?

Not sure what the differences for these two would be. I mean, I guess if I had more experience dating women from the Ukraine, it would help!

to blend in easily? speak the language - dress more like a local fashion wise. Hang out with a few local people.

The biggest cultural difference is Russians and Ukrainians believe there is a big difference between people. Americans believe that people are essentially the same. So, for instance, I can meet a person who is Ukrainian. They think I am Russian/Ukrainian and like me. As soon as I say "I'm American" their attitude changes. "We are too different from each other" they will say. "Russians think differently" Of course 98% of the differences are totally in their head. But their culture is highly racist, nationalist, sexist and so on. American culture is very globalist- judging people individually. Slavic culture judges people according to what group they can lump them in. And also liking every single girl is a problem I have gotten into with Slavic people as well. That is not acceptable generally, but you might get a girl that hears this and likes you and approaches you as a result. It is more normal to focus on one girl and ask her repeatedly to date you as she keeps telling you no.

Russian women are often stereotyped as the most beautiful in the world. But what does this mean, exactly? To fully understand what it means to be a Russian woman, you have to know the history of Russia. The history of Russia is vast and complicated and has contributed to some of the stereotypes associated with Russian women. 


For instance, Russians are often considered to be very feminine because they were once thought to wear “tight-fitting clothes” and be “very well-groomed”. In reality, it's not that Russian women don't dress more masculine than their counterparts in Western culture. 


It's more about whether or not they chose to do so. It was simply expected for them to look put-together and present.

I disagree. It's in their blood to dress nice or dress sexy or even slutty. In high school it was the conservative Christian Russian Ukrainian girls coming to school belly showing, boobs hanging out, tight skirts etc. Somewhat less with completely American people with Slavic blood but seems to be in their genes. It seems speaking at first but do you want to date someone who usually dress this way. They seem superficial.
