Following on from last week. You have made the plunge, bitten the bullet and travelled to the Ukraine to meet your beautiful Ukrainian woman whom you hope will be the woman of your dreams and your future wife. What do you talk about?
You don’t want to seem to eager. She is every bit as beautiful in real life as her photos and the grainy video on your skype video chats you have had over the last month or more. She seems pleased with you too…or at least has not made it obvious she is disappointed at your first meeting.
Things appear to be progressing OK.
So what should you talk about and the subjects not to mention? The same rules apply as with any date in your home country. Avoid, sex, religion and politics, and of course don’t mention any ex’s especially if you are still not quite over the last one. Your Ukrainian date will certainly have a very strong opinion on the latest and present unrest happening in the east of her country. It would be wise not to ask her about this or to mention Russia or Putin, or mention any names of politicians in Ukraine that you may have heard of in the news. She will have a strong opinion one way or the other, and will be eager to share it, and that is not something you want to get into yet I would suggest. Plenty of time to support her views later on and to be there to support and comfort her with whatever is happening in her country of birth. There is no much propaganda and misinformation everywhere it is hard to know the real facts, even for her who lives there with them being feed propaganda and lies through all their media and TV. Even the local residents do not really know what is really happening in their own country.
Talk about the normal things you would talk about on any normal date and avoid those subjects that you normally know you should avoid. Lean in. Smile, look into her eyes. Show interest. Keep the conversation going. Find out her likes and dislikes, what you might have in common. Remember the language barrier will be a problem, but you have an interpreter there for this first meeting. As already mentioned in an earlier post their English skills will not be perfect either. Some humour won’t translate well but as long as you are smiling and showing the right body language then the intent will be clear and it won’t really matter whether they get the joke or not.
Your aim is to at least score a second date, so try and find out what your date would like to do for your next meeting. She will be enormously proud of her country and her city so will more than likely want to show you around and will suggest that. Ukraine cities have many wonderful parks and historical monuments and culture everywhere. It will be a good chance to stroll around, maybe holding hands or arm in arm and experience the culture and scenery. Experience one of their many great cafes or try a coffee or traditional treat from one on the many stalls or carts at the parks. Let her decide which. You won’t be disappointed, and the prices very reasonable. Maybe buy her a flower from one of the sellers on the street or park.
It is just like a date in your country but with so much more of a new country and new culture to experience at the same time. Enjoy the new experiences and new tastes in food.
