10 romantic ideas for Lviv. Part 1

April 21, 2017 by

Lviv is known as the western capital of Ukraine. It is not only a beautiful city bearing the charm of ancient architecture, but also a place with many modern peculiarities. In this article I will tell you about the most popular and unique places in Lviv where you may spend exciting times together with your Ukrainian lady.

General direction

Firstly, I suggest you starting in the city center and, more precisely, from the Plosha Rynok (The Market Square). This is the focal point of the cultural and historical life of the city. There are many interesting places worth visiting which are easily reached on foot. The overall architectural view reflects the initial city landscape as the city governors ordered it to be preserved.

  1. Lvivska Kavova Kopalna (Lviv Coffee Mines)

The first location which will lift your spirits after the long trip to Lviv is Lvivska Kavova Kopalna. You will find up to twenty different coffee types which will help you to wake up in a cozy atmosphere. The most unusual of which you will find on the ground floor – a coffee covered with a sugar top brazed with a burner. For those who don’t like coffee there are several types of a tasty tea sorts. My favorite is pomegranate tea with ginger – it is something special!

Intriguing name πŸ˜‰

The name of the cafe which may be translated as Coffee Mines was purposely chosen. This place is definitely worth visiting. Your lady will for sure have a wish to make a selfie with you wearing a real miners helmet. Though, I don’t want to uncover all the details and will leave you to discover them yourself πŸ™‚

  1. Lvivska Shokoladna Maysternia (Lviv Chocolate Workshop)

If your lady likes chocolate you just cannot go past the Lviv Chocolate Workshop! It is a café where you may taste several sorts of hot chocolate with fillings. You may create your own composition choosing from a wide range of additions. Walnuts, hazelnuts, raisins, coconut chips, almond, caramel, cashew may be mixed with a white, milk or dark chocolate according to your taste.

On the first floor you will find a candy shop which offers a great choice of different types of handmade chocolate candies which are a great present for your Ukrainian lady as well as for your relatives at home. We have mentioned in another article that these chocolates are a “must have” souvenir when you visit Ukraine πŸ™‚

5 Souvenirs to Get on Your Trip to Ukraine

      3. City overview

If you wish to explore the whole of Lviv, I suggest you visit the following locations in different parts of the city. This is of course a Townhouse which is in the middle of the Market Square. You may even hear the trumpeter announcing every second hour of the day from a top window of the Townhouse. Another location situated in the center is a restaurant at «Panorama Lviv Hotel» from which you can see the buildings of the different centuries decorated with statues, the churches and the Townhouse. You will feel like a bird above the roofs of the old houses. Lviv high castle is the highest place of the city. This is another place from which you can see the new city and the center.


     4. Horse-drawn carriage

Take a break from all the excursions on foot and take a trip through the old city in a horse-drawn carriage. This will add a bit of romance to your day and will definitely excite your lady. Riding in a carriage will make her feel like a medieval noblewoman.

       5. Night Guard

On Fridays and Saturdays at 10 PM, you and your lady may take part in an exciting excursion called “Night Guard” together with a night burgomaster (mayor) which lasts for 2 hours. They will appoint you both as mayoral helpers and, wearing a mantle, you will keep watch while walking through the streets of an old part of city. You will hear a lot of thrilling legends and stories about the people, the old buildings and the city itself. The excursion commentary is available in different languages: Ukrainian, Polish, English, German and Russian.

Mind your lady’s taste

A first acquaintance with a Ukrainian woman will show you her personality and give you a hint of the place which is worth visiting together. It may be either a Lviv Theater of Opera and Ballet, a museum, a cinema or a park, a club or a church. Take into account the lady’s unique preferences. For me, as a former member of a club of historical reconstruction, an excursion to an armor museum Arsenal was also an exciting event!

I will end the first part of our excursion here and leave you to choose the most interesting places for you and your lady to visit! πŸ™‚

Small Thank you message – Divyesh (London) and Olena

April 20, 2017 by

Morning Keith

Just wanted to thank you and your wonderful colleagues at Ukraine Brides Agency. I know positive comments go a long way. So let me start with my story, I’ll try to keep it short as I can,

Back in November 2015 I met a lady on your site, little did I know then that she would become my wife. We spoke to each other over a period of time and while I was not convinced she was the right lady for me we still kept the communication going. In March 2016 we had our first meeting in Kiev what a wonderful time we had and not forgetting the translator you provided she was amazing and made sure everything went well, funny how she mentioned that for years she’s has translated but never had seen a marriage. Well we proved her wrong hehe.

I flew in and out of Ukraine every month in 2016 even if it was for just the weekend but wanted to make sure that both of us saw each other as often as we could. This kept us close and yes internet dating is hard and different compared to the so called normal way of dating. But in no way did we fall in love on the first date and to be honest it took me 4 months to even have feeling for her and now talking with her even with her it took time. My point on this is it takes time and effort to make things work and this is where I feel that it does not work for everyone. I think everyone agrees that Ukrainian women are very beautiful (that’s why there are the third most beautiful women on the plant) but it was not all happy and exciting only because I come from a different culture to my wife and to adjust is hard but you have to communicate and that’s the key.

Anyway back to my story, In October 2016 we both decided it was right that we got married, oh yeah she proposed to me and wow I was in shock but what a wonderful thing it was, well if she didn’t propose I would have done it anyway. We set the date for December 24th yes just before Christmas day, I’m a romantic so seemed right. We had a small register wedding as both of us didn’t want a large wedding.

March 10th 2017 my wife was in London with me. I make it sound so easy but no way was it, but I wanted to share with you that if all the paperwork is in order then it’s not difficult at all to get your wife into London. Reading on the internet how people say is almost impossible to get into London or any western county is so false. We used a great visa company that done all the work for us, well for me I just had to send some paperwork to them and their looked after everything else. The key is to follow the process that is required by the country you decide to go and live in.

So now it’s April 2017 and me and Olena have already done so much in the UK, we are looking forward to what life throws at us and enjoying every minute we spend together.  Life is so wonderful when you share it with the one person you trust and love.

Keep up the good work




April 7, 2017 by

To be buy or not to be buy – that is the question! It may seem funny, but this way sounds the most common issue a man faces when dating a Ukrainian lady. Communicating through the Internet men often suggest financial support to the ladies they like. It is no secret that every woman wants to be treated like a princess and Ukrainian ladies are not an exception. Here comes the question: how much is it needed to make her feel this way? Guess what? Actually nothing!

Your care is what it all about

When you date a Ukrainian lady, all what matters is how you behave and how you treat her. Any small gesture of your care, like helping her with her everyday shopping (I mean exactly this type instead of going to boutique), carrying her shopping bags home, helping her to cook tasty dinner and meeting her after a long working day shows her your affection. This is all true about the real dating. But what if you can’t be close to your lady for some reason? How can you show your love and care?

All the gifts you may buy to your lady may be just a feeble replacement of your real presence beside her. Well, this is also better than nothing. You may show your affection by hundreds of different ways. You may buy your lady a 101 roses, a golden necklace, a voucher for a spa salon, a villa, a yacht, an island… Though, do you actually remember the list of things that a Ukrainian lady really appreciates in her relationship with a man? πŸ™‚

 Money can’t buy everything

Most of Ukrainian ladies value support (emotional and financial support as well). Ukrainian ladies, especially single mothers, may seem strong and independent. You may get an idea of how bravely they meet all the life difficulties reading this post However, they will be immensely thankful to a man who can make them feel tender, weak and fragile. At these circumstances a financial support would be of a great use. It could unload the lady from working-to-survive to working-for-pleasure. Note that I didn’t say that you have to buy her free time completely.

Any adult person has his/her set way of life. Therefore, intruding too much in this scheme may do you a disservice. The lady may be either scared or angry at you. She may become spoiled as well. Nobody can guess how every particular person reacts on easy money. If you don’t want to make your lady feel like she was bought, don’t provide her money before you meet the lady personally. Considering everything I told you, I do not recommend you to buy expensive clothes, devices, jewelry when you are actually not a couple yet.

Excessive financial support and its consequences

The desire to provide for your lady is a noble and respectful one. Though, I think it is better not to send big sums to the lady as this may cause negative consequences. You will likely get a natural wish to know if the lady got your money transfer and if she spent it. The lady in her turn will have no desire to report you about everything as she is an adult and independent person. Your questions may make Ukrainian woman think that you have doubts in her ability to earn enough on her own. Taking that into account you may get some doubts about the real purpose the lady used your financial help for. All this may cause a loss of trust between you.

Don’t pamper her child too much

Building a connection with your lady’s child is a great influencer on development of your relationship. Be careful: if you decide to pamper the lady’s kid you may also get into a trouble. Accepting expensive gadgets like a smartphone, a laptop, etc. from an unfamiliar man is not something a good mother teaches her child. There can also happen that the lady starts to think that she owes you now when she got some money from you. The loss of independence may scare the lady and you will lose a connection with her.

Vital advice for your relationship

One more final recommendation I need to give you concerning the topic is this: do not ever ask to give your presents back. It is unacceptable even in case if your relations completely broke no matter what the reason was. This is something that a gentleman would never do. Any gift should be a gesture of a good will and not a bargain. I will repeat myself that actually your support and care matters. This is a strong base of a healthy relationship with a Ukrainian lady.

I hope that everything I wrote in the post will wipe out some doubts you may have now and will help you to build a healthy and strong relationship with your Ukrainian lady.

I would be happy to get your feedback and your ideas about the topic πŸ™‚


Myths and Truths About Online Dating Revealed

March 30, 2017 by

Online Dating Myths

The trend of online dating has been increasingly becoming popular for several years now. Online dating is indeed an excellent option for those who are interested in socializing, meeting more people, and getting to know potential partners. If you haven’t tried this online dating just yet, there are some things that you need to know before you start doing it. Here are some myths and truths that you should know to help you arrive at a sound decision. Go ahead and take a look.


  • Online dating is not considered a category of dating. But, since it also does not have any end to it, it can be compared to traditional dating.
  • The profile picture on the online dating site guarantees a good-looking date. But you have to remember that there is more to the person than just their picture. They may have a cute face but wait until you find out their qualities. Or, even if they don’t look that good in the picture, they may actually possess admirable qualities that are actually more attractive.
  • If a person is indeed good-looking, they will not even have to do online dating. There are many reasons why a person gets involved in online dating. Most of the time, it is because they do not have enough time to socialize and meet people in the real world.
  • Having second thoughts about someone does not mean they won’t make a good date. If you are not really sure about a person, why take the risk? If you are in doubt and you feel uncomfortable about it, there are many other people you can meet in other online dating communities.
  • It is possible to determine whether there’s a spark or chemistry by means of chatting and e-mailing alone. There is no better way to find out if you are compatible with a person than by meeting them in person and get to know them.
  • The Internet is not a safe place to meet new people. While there is a risk in using the technology to socialize and meet potential dates, there are plenty of ways by which you can make sure that you don’t fall prey to someone who wants to take advantage. Besides, the number of people you meet in the real world is nothing compared to the ones you can meet in the online dating sites.
  • Online dating is for losers. People who utilize online dating sites are actually the global community of single yet intelligent adults—the professional individuals who share common goals when it comes to finding great friends and dates online.
  • Online dating is for the younger generations. There are plenty of online dating sites for different groups of people, so there will definitely be a right place for everybody. This is even an excellent venue for those who are trying to race with time because it is a lot faster to meet matches online than in real life.


  • There will be a lot of people who would like to get to know you, and some of them might just pretend that they like you and are interested in you but they actually are not.
  • Men who are good-looking in online dating sites are not necessarily bad dates. And, women who look so nice are not always the most pleasant ones they pretend to be.
  • If you think that there is something wrong with your date’s profile, or something you are not sure about, it is better to move on to other possibilities instead of taking a risk. There are a ton of liars in online dating, and many of them just want to have fun.
  • It is common for people in online dating sites to tell you that they want to see you when they actually don’t have any plans at all.
  • Women who will refuse the offer of a meeting have important reasons for doing so: 1) They are not interested, but they just cannot afford to let you know. 2) They are overwhelmed with the great offers. 3) They are not ready to date.
  • Women get more propositions than men.

10 Romantic ideas for Odessa. Part I

March 30, 2017 by

Odessa is a city full of romance and passion. Its old-style architecture begs to be explored. I would like to suggest you a top 10 places of interest which you may visit together with your beloved lady during your trip to Ukraine.

  1. Seaside Boulevard

This street is probably the most charming place in Odessa which you will easily find after your arrival. A perfect view on a Black sea, the harbor and the elegant hotel “Odessa”, where the famous Potemkin stairs catch the eye of every tourist who visits. A pleasant walk will lead you to the Odessa Opera and Ballet Theater – a building designed as a copy of the famous Semper Opera House in Dresden.

Lots of nearby cafes invite you to drop in during the lunchtime. If you come to Seaside boulevard late in the evening you will be amazed by the beauty of the lighting decorating the nearby areas, trees, bridges and buildings.

  1. Odessa Opera and Ballet Theater

This is truly the outstanding building in Odessa. If you haven’t had an opportunity to visit Dresden, you can at least have a quick look at this building to understand the beauty of the city. This theater, created in neo-baroque style and opened in 1887, presents tremendous plays and hosts the best opera singers from around the world.

A Ukrainian lady will be happy if you invite her to listen to an Italian opera or watch a ballet during your stay in Odessa. You can easily buy tickets for a desired event beforehand following this link

Even if you don’t like opera, you ought to visit the building to at least see how amazingly it looks inside decorated in a rococo style with many gold-covered elements. Don’t forget to take a memorable photo of you and your Ukrainian lady in front of this beautiful building!

  1. Teschin Bridge in Odessa

This place of interest is included in your walk by the Seaside Boulevard. Its name you may translate as Mother-in-law’s Bridge. There are many versions of the origin of its name. The most interesting of them is that the construction of the bridge is so light that it trembles in a strong wind – just as the tongue of a mother-in-law when she quarrels with her daughter’s husband πŸ™‚ I experienced myself an exciting feature of this bridge while being on an excursion with a group of classmates – if 10 or more people jump simultaneously on the middle part of the bridge – it really starts shaking!

Teschin Bridge had been a special place for loving couples up until 2011. It was full of all-size metal locks hanging on the railings of the bridge. Sadly, for the last several years it was cleared of these signs of love. The locks have been transferred to another place of interest I will talk about further.

  1. Loving heart

A lovely metal construction was gifted by the city to all the couples willing to leave their sign of love aimed at two purposes. Firstly it saved the unstable bridge from an extra-weight which the locks added to its construction. And secondly it gave an opportunity for newlyweds to keep the beautiful tradition of hanging the locks with their names written. So, if you want to add some romance to your walk and leave a reminder about your trip for your Ukrainian lady – don’t forget to buy a lock before you come to the Loving heart which you may find just at one of the ends of Teschin bridge πŸ™‚

  1. Colonnade

One more interesting place waiting for you when you pass the bridge towards the Seaside boulevard. It is the Colonnade (they call it also a rotund or a belvedere).

This art object was once a part of a Vorontsov palace which stands right behind it. Unfortunately the palace doesn’t look very attractive now due to many renovations made. It was a part of a conservatory where exotic plants and trees grew. They say that this was once the most beautiful place of the palace. We may only guess nowadays how pretty the whole ensemble looked. Meanwhile, you may enjoy a great view on a harbor from the highest points of the Seaside Boulevard where the Colonnade stands. The newlyweds often make photo sessions near the colons.

Nearby the Colonnade, closer to Vorontsov Palace, you will find one more interesting object with a nice history. I guess I will leave you to explore it yourself! πŸ˜‰

I am going to stop my excursion at this lovely place full of mystery of the past centuries. If you wish you may find in the Internet a number of intriguing legends connected with the art objects I mentioned. We will soon continue this excursion through Odessa in which I will lead you to the places bearing a unique charm which you may find only in Odessa.

Meanwhile I suggest you to have a quick look at a note made by the founder of Ukraine Brides Agency, Keith Gordon, about Odessa. I guess his comment will add a bit of intrigue to the image of this magnificent city πŸ˜‰

Odessa is hot!

Top Reasons to Date Ukrainian Women

March 27, 2017 by

Dating Ukrianian Women

Finding the right partner for life is not something that comes very easy. As much as possible, we don’t want to make the mistake in selecting the person we will be spending the rest of our lives with. Most people do not feel complete without a husband or wife and a family. And in order to increase the chances of meeting more people, many people, particularly men, resort to online dating.

With online dating sites, you can start conversations with a number of people all at the same time. It is very much convenient and it increases the chances of meeting people from any place in the world. If you are also searching for a person you’d like to be with for the rest of your life, one of the best people are the women from Ukraine, and here are the reasons why.

Ukraine Women Are Family-Oriented

This specific characteristic of Slavic women is definitely admirable and attractive and it is because of two possible reasons: First, Slavic people have traditional upbringing and they consider family values as the most important things in a person’s life. Another reason is because Slavic women are not influenced by sexual revolutions. In fact, their voices are being valued when it comes to making the most crucial family decisions, and they are highly regarded by their husbands.

They Make Great Wives

People look for someone to love because we need to feel the support from someone else aside from ourselves, and Ukrainian girls make perfect wives and partners. Their foundation of love is based on their family values because they consider their families as their ultimate source of support and assistance.  They consider their families as teams because they are supportive of each other.

They Are Deep

Ukrainian girls, aside from being beautiful, are also smart. Many of them have earned a college degree. In fact, a lot of them have explored the fields of engineering and liberal arts. They are intelligent and they value education. They have also valued high morality and are religious individuals. They pay so much respect to older people because of their upbringing and orientation.

You Can Learn Another Culture From Them

Ukraine has a very rich culture and history. It is also a Christian country. If you decide to date someone from Ukraine, you will surely learn a lot about them.

They Are Not Mindful Of Culture And Age

There are people who are really very particular with a person’s culture, the place that they are from, background, and age. But it is not like that with Ukraine women. They could only care less about a person’s country and age, so these are the last things you should even be worried about.

Ukrainian Girls Are Very Nice

Women in Ukraine are known for their pleasant and easy-going personalities. They do not really search for a lot of things in life to be happy. In fact, the most important things that keep them happy are a good partner and their families.

They Are Hardworking

Of Ukraine are not afraid of hard work, regardless if it’s manual or intellectual. They have inherited these traits from the previous generations. They are industrious just like their ancestors and are ready for work in the house and in the field.

They Are Patient And Forgiving

These two qualities are important things to look for in a partner, and Ukrainian women have them both. They can be forgiving to people’s mistakes, especially their partner’s mistakes because they know it full well that people are not perfect. Of course, they also know how to express themselves once they feel offended and hurt.

They make good mothers

Once a Ukrainian woman becomes a mother, her child instantly becomes everything in her life. They show unconditional love for their kids and are willing to do everything to make their children happy. They look after their welfare and want the best things for their growth and development. And because they are family-oriented, they bring up their kids the same way, which ensures that their children will become nice and pleasant people when they become adults.

The Do’s and Don’ts When Dating a Ukrainian Woman

March 24, 2017 by

Beautiful Ukrainian Women Extremely Popular

Dating A Ukrainian Woman
Beautiful Ukrainian women have been so extremely popular in the world because aside from being so good-looking, they are known to be devoted, faithful, and smart.

If you have considered marrying a Ukrainian girl, it is important for you to learn more about them and their native culture.

Here are a few points you might want to take note of:

Ukraine’s culture is traditionalist, and it means that they are giving so much importance to their family values. Ukrainian people are very family-oriented and they concentrate on starting their own family, raising their own children, and maintaining healthy relationships with their husbands and wives. So, if your goal is to win the heart of a Ukrainian woman, you need to speak to the family about your intention.

Ukrainian women do not intend to leave their country, contrary to what many people say that they are in search for foreign men to marry to be able to spend their fortune. But this is not the case because, in reality, citizens of Ukraine are now more patriotic.

Girls in Ukraine prioritize their families above everything else. While they also have their own dreams and ambitions, they are also into businesses and charity programs. They love being given opportunities to find themselves in the crafts they enjoy and love.

Now, if you are planning to pursue a Ukrainian girl, here are the things you may need to do and not to do:

1. Know what you want

If you plan to initiate a conversation with a Ukrainian girl, you need to make sure that you know your purpose and you know what you are doing it for. It is also important that your goals are clear to your potential date. When you express your plans about the future, it will give her the impression that you are a matured person, which is rather important for a Ukrainian woman.

Be respectful of her culture, family members, and relatives

Women in Ukraine love the nature and their own land. They also value their traditions, although they do not force anyone to use their native language but learning it is viewed as a sign of respect. You should also pay respect to their families and relatives.

2. Be a man

For Ukrainian girls, they have a firm belief that the man is the breadwinner and the woman is the housekeeper. Gender roles are well protected in countries like Ukraine, and in their country, the man is still the one who provides for his family while the woman is the one who stays at home doing the cooking, cleaning, as well as taking good care of the children. While Ukrainian women are popular for being skilled housekeepers, they also want to be valued and appreciated. They know how to respect their husbands if they act like a real man.

3. Be intelligent

Ukrainian girls find intelligent men attractive. They want men who are smart and the ones who have the ability to keep the conversation going, that’s because women from Ukraine are rather smart and educated and they do not want to be bored. They want a company that will keep them entertained and that’s why they are looking for a witty man.

4. Give her some space

Just like everybody else, Ukrainian girls would also love some time to spend alone. They want some personal space where they can enjoy certain activities by themselves, just anything that makes them feel happy and complete.

5. Be generous

Ukrainian women expect guys to pay for the cost when they are invited to go out with them. It is just normal for men to be the one to pay for all the activities when going out because it is a sign of being courteous. It is also going to be a nice gesture to pay for the cab so that she gets home safe after the date. If you are from another country, the girl will appreciate it better if you bring her something from your home country. It is also still very common in Ukraine for guys to give girls flowers because it is a good sign of how thoughtful and sweet they are.

Online Dating Realities: Things You Need to Know About Online Dating

March 22, 2017 by

Online Dating Realities

In the quest to find romance, many people have turned to online dating not only because of the convenience it brings but also because of the increased chance of meeting new people. In the past, online dating has been stigmatized as a venue for people who desperately look for a date or partner, but now, it has become a more acceptable and normal part of the mating game.

While there really are many advantages that dating sites can do for you, there are also some important things you need to know before you try this one out.

  1. Decide why you want to try an online dating service

    You have to understand what you are looking for in an online dating site. Are you looking for a serious, romantic relationship or are you just looking for a fling? You have to know that not everyone will be able to meet your standards but expect to meet a wider range of people with different qualities and personalities than you would in real life.

  2. Don’t get tied up in looks

    In your profile, you have all the liberty to make an impression of who you are and who you want. While you want to look your best in your profile, you need to make sure that it still looks real and recognizable. Make sure not to get caught up in physical appearances.

  3. Know the person you are dealing with on the other side

    When doing online dating, your ultimate goal is to be able to find a person whose profile matches with yours. Many people indicate exactly the things that they are interested in and the things they are looking for, whether they are looking for a serious relationship or just want some casual dating. However, you also have to be very careful because some users would exaggerate their positive traits and qualities. Just be ready to deal with people from all ages, from different stages of life.

  4. Keep an open mind

    Many people have been successful in their quest for romance through online dating sites but that does not mean it can be for everyone. Remember that there will be thousands of profiles that you will have to sort through, and it’s all going to be more of a trial and error. You cannot immediately find the right person in just one try. You may need to try a few times more, or you may need to try so many times before you can finally find the right person you want to date. It isn’t very far from what’s happening in real life in which you will also have to take the time to meet and get to know some people.

  5. Don’t invest too much time before meeting in person

    It is advised to limit interaction before meeting the person so that you will not be losing the sense of discovery during the online process. This will also help ensure that the mystery and the authenticity of the first meeting are kept.

  6. Decide if the story of how you met matters to you

    Think and decide if you are comfortable sharing with your friends the story of how you two met and started as a couple. That’s because not everyone finds it easy and casual to just tell anybody that they met their partners online. Think about this because you may still want to stick to the traditional or old-fashioned way of meeting and knowing someone.

  7. Expect that not everything that’s posted is true

    If you meet someone online, you cannot expect that everything you are told is the truth. There has got to be some lying somewhere that took place. But it does not entirely mean that they are lying about themselves or their identity. It’s just that there could be some exaggeration about some information they put in their profiles, perhaps a little tweak on their pictures.

  8. There is a dating site for every type

    If you want to look for a date or partner who shares the same views, interests, and passion as yours, there should be a type for that. There are even dating sites which are specific to religion.

Matchmaking Vs. Online Dating: How to Tell the Difference Between the Two

March 20, 2017 by

The technology has been one helpful tool for people who wanted to find a date but got no time. While there are many success stories from people who were able to find the love of their lives online, not everyone is actually successful in their search for love using the Internet because of many reasons. And this is why people would always go back to matchmaking services which have been around for years, and even longer than the existence of online dating. But what really is the difference between the two?

How does matchmaking really work?

In matchmaking, you will be meeting with the matchmaker who will ask a couple of personal questions. You will then be set up for a date with a potential match and come back to your matchmaker to tell them the story about your date, the things you liked about it, and the things that you didn’t like. Then you can go on with another date with another person and the process repeats until you find someone who you finally like.

How does online dating work?

Online dating is one of the most popular ways of meeting people using a wide variety of online dating sites. And people choose the websites based on their interest and needs because not all who join these activities are searching for romantic relationships. Some people are just looking for friends. For first-time users, all they have to do is to sign up and create a profile and take it from there.

Matchmaking vs. Online Dating

Here are some key differences between an online dating and a professional matchmaking service:

The cost. The cost is one of the things that sets online dating apart from matchmaking service because matchmaking can cost a great deal of money if you want to make sure that you are meeting someone who is also committed to this setup. Although there are also some online dating sites which require payment, you have greater chances of finding people who are serious about dating, and it still costs less than the matchmaking services. When you sign up for matchmaking services, you are not only committing your money, you are also committing your time to meet the matchmaker and the person you are going to date.

The numbers. When it comes to the number of users, online dating sites boast millions of users and that means you have a wider selection of people to choose from. In matchmaking, the number of users is smaller. Some matchmaking services even set rules for exclusivity, which makes the pool of selection very limited. However, the numbers are not the only basis for determining which service is better. There are advantages and disadvantages to having a lot of people to choose from.

What you see is what you get. In matchmaking, you are not the only one who entirely makes the decision on who is the right match for you because before you even get to meet your date, someone has already picked them for you. While it is also helpful to heed the advice of other people about who’s a good match, it is nearly impossible to convey everything you are looking for in a potential partner. On the other hand, when you try out online dating, you can personally find out the details of the person you are about to meet just by looking at their profile. Also, when you do your searches, you will not have to explain your preference to anybody. The freedom is all yours when it comes to choosing the person you want to get to know more.

Matchmaking has shown better results than online dating. Matchmaking has proven how it helps a person get the chance to be with someone they like and someone who is right for them. While making the relationship work is entirely up to you, the most important thing is that you have found someone suitable for your personality, character, and everything else. Online dating is riskier. Matchmaking is a lot safer because of the screening process that clients and potential dates have to go through.
