It is a rather hasty move...have you even left Kiev yet? What are you aiming to achieve?

Leaving kiev Sunday 13.  5 days of professional exams and then back to work.  I liked sumy.  I find kiev ok but I must admit I liked walking around sumy.  I'm from London and found kiev a bit too much like central London.  As to dating women I liked krimster s advice to find a country girl.  I really liked the vibe of sumy.  I'm really just indulging my enjoyment of Ukraine.  Having travelled Europe USA Africa Australia I always thought eastern Europe was dull and grey and oh my god have I got a thing for Ukranian women with grey eyes.  Somehow I no longer feel comfortable in the UK.  Ukraine feels more clean and relaxed and the women are so much more friendly.  Had a hair cut and wash for 170 so I gave her 200 so touchy feely.  I notice it between people so much more touching.  I'm thinking of dinipro end of January.

I liked Sumy too, but after a week I was itching to get back to Kharkiv. Probably just a little too small, especially for a 'visit many' sort of trip both in terms of abundance of single women (compared to the city) and the possibility that you may accidentally and possibly awkwardly run into someone you have met before.


I've only been to Kharkiv and Zaporozhye (that far East) and never had a problem. I don't think you'll have any issues regarding safety in Dnipro.

Not that I am over enthused to help you --but-- Dnipro is further from the Russian border than Sumy-- and about 5/6 = times the size.
I have written previously that life quite close to the frontline in Donetsk is relatively normal for many people -- and that is 200 kms or so east of  Dnipro.
As for Krimster "advice" --mm-- you are taking far too much notice of the idiot Trenchcoat ( I am not yet convinced you are not a figment of his imagination) for you to be taken seriously. Write something semi salacious and some forum members here are all over it like a bad rash- so a  few titillating details will get attention !!
As for K advice on "village" girls -- basically an outdated piece of nonsense . The K is referencing a period over 20 years ago and the "advice" offered is long past it's use by date. It happens to fit with the Trenchcoat idea of some "poor" ( and ignorant) beautiful peasant girl  that can fill all his imaginary dreams of getting a girl on the cheap !
NOT GOING TO HAPPEN ____  FULL STOP !
Going to Dnipro in search of a "village" girl  is ridiculously laughable -- Dnipro,Kyiv,Odesa ,Kharkiv -- are all relatively sophisticated big cities .
As it happens -I know Dnipro very well -- and the surrounding areas and cities & towns and was there (again) a few months ago -  and my comments are current.

Jayh point taken.  Kiev has a London vibe.  I would say sumy had a county town like oxford vibe.  Different architecture obviously.  But the vibe of the women.  As to trench I'm not him but I'd almost like to meet him face to face.  If I knew how to I'd photo my Ukranian passport stamps to prove my story

I have never done the pedestal thing with the FSUW or any women.
There used to be quite a bit of that going on here, but haven't noticed much of it the past few years.

It is a strange comment from James -given the pedestal he had Sumy "friend" on a week or so ago !

Good point; I hadn't thought of that.

Actually I don't have good recollection as to who was in the pedestal group, and their current  married/divorced status.

Whaat?

Comparing Sumy to Oxford, now ?

One of them is a major tourist destination and world famous seat of learning ...

I'm getting seriously worried about your thought processes  ! ;)

Msmob I'm talking about a vibe of the people as in more laid back.  Sumy has a university.  Both towns are populated by people who have and haven't anything to do with the university.

Jayh as to pedestals .  I have now dated a belarus and a Ukranian woman who could have been models but has top professional jobs.  Both were for less than a year and o m g was it difficult not to put them on pedestals.  Unfortunately I guess beautiful women have many options.

Please, please, please - never compare my mindset or approach to TC. We could not be more polar opposites in our approach to life or women.

Agree. Trench’s approach to women is bordering on abusive. As to his approach to life, he gives fresh meaning to what a Scrooge is.

It's the same as any FSU city,although leans a bit more modern.

What exactly are your concerns regarding Dnepro?

Flying in , it is a modern airport no issues.
They city downtown is nice, well laid out,  and is one of the largest in Ukraine.its as safe or more so than Kiev in areas you should be.
It's as risky as any major or provincial  FSU city in areas or times of the night that you shouldn't be.
The industrial area is dirty like most  cities.

Whoa, I do believe it was you putting fsu women on a pedestal?
:)


My observations in these forums is  brits tend to be whinging poms about women,and relationship issues.
I cant count the number that have come here stating facts about thier relationship that would make any sane man run,yet they'll drag it on a month or years and years.
 Fairly famous at writing songs regarding it.lol



Obviously there are plenty of exceptions to this, but the worst cases I've seen of guys continuing with really funky wacky self destructive  relationships have been brits.
Of course Americans and canadians,  or Europeans do so as well.

Seems you've decided to end the one relationship and move on, that's good from my perspective.
   A relationship is founded in mutual trust, I find it difficult to imagine youd have trusted that situation or person.


Good luck in Dnepro, it's one of the nicer cities in Ukraine.

My view also, which was why I put up the thread about 'Anyone else dreaming of living in the FSU' etc. Granted having had the views of other posters £500 a month wouldn't be a great standard of living so I would need to get more than that in somehow. Still the draw of having many beautiful and 'friendly' women (unlike the UK) on hand makes it a dream I would never want to escape from, unless of course Russian tanks came rolling in, they don't feature in my dream, lol.

Practically though at this point in time I have family in the UK and need to up my wealth a bit so for me unfortunately it probably wouldn't be the move to make at present.
