To sum up, you have several options to meet and date a Russian or Ukrainian girl.
First option, it’s to meet the Slavic woman on the public venues, and places popular between Ukrainians, but in this huge crowd of people of course it’s not for sure that this lady will be sincerely interested in you and would like to continue your acquaintance in less formal atmosphere. In the case if she accepts to give you her phone number and meet with you, be ready for several expenses for flowers and valuable gifts, luxury restaurants, interesting outings which are unavoidable if you really wish to impress an Ukrainian girl living in Canada. Actually, these girls who emigrated from their country have already lost their family values and became more material, independent, emancipated, most of them are in search of a wealthy man and dream to have a luxuriant life. So obviously you risk to stay with nothing. After few months of unforgettable dates and romantic trips, she could break up with you just meeting another, more interesting man.
The second option, it’s to make a profile on Facebook and another social networks or try the online dating. But even if you turn to the dating agency in Toronto, it doesn’t give you an expected, quick result because in Canada you will always have a huge concurrence, and for one Ukrainian woman will be around 8-9 men, so it rather she who will make the choice, not you!
