The website packs in a lot of features without making the display overwhelming. Searching for matches is made simple and easy, and there are enough communication options to keep things interesting. All-in-all, Mamba is a great site, but I would only recommend it if you speak Russian or Ukrainian and if you plan on going to that part of the world soon.

POF is definitely among the best dating apps on the list. It allows you to join for free, message people for free, and engage with the app for free. However, the idea that it bills itself as a free dating app is hogwash because you definitely have to pay money for more advanced features. Anyway, this one seems to work pretty well. The interface is clean and everything is simple to use. There are some issues here and there, but nothing too drastic. It works pretty well, at least for a dating app.
Although you may feel a good rapport with the person you are in contact with, it sometimes happens that there is no sparkle when eventually you meet. Remember, it can take a while to meet the right person, it’s quite normal to have to wait before meeting Miss or Mister Right. Online dating is faster and, if you find the sparkle isn’t there, at least you’ll have made a great friend from another country. And . . . maybe one day this "friend" will introduce you to the person with whom you will fall in love. 
In a recent study, funded by this online company, also found that 1.4 million unmarried American men ages 35-60 years old have participated in international online dating to expand their opportunities to find true love. And seven out of 10 men (72%) who have tried online dating, consider dating an international women a great way to experience and learn about a new culture.
There is no feminism in Russia or Ukraine. Yes, contemporary Slavic women want to have equal rights but they don't go out of their way to prove that they are just like men, in the way Western girls often do. They don't want to refuse smart clothes and cosmetics; they believe that a woman should look womanly. Russian girls still have traditional views on how a man should behave: in terms of dating culture, they want their men to be real gentlemen with them. Every Russian girl likes when a man holds the door and lets her go first, when he helps her remove her coat, when he stands up when sees her approaching him, and when he brings flowers on a date and pays for dinner.
Within the first three hours of signing up, Happn welcomed me with 68 users it said I had crossed paths with, even though I hadn't left my apartment all day. It might be helpful if you're looking to date your immediate neighbors (or Uber drivers), but I struggle to see why this is much of a draw when competitors like Tinder already show the distance between you and other users. Frankly, if I saw a cute guy in a coffee shop, I'd rather just approach him than check if he's on Happn. The app seems designed for people who don't want to use online dating but who also don't want to approach people in real life. Pick a lane.
Bumble also checks the boxes for usability, a slick user interface, and easy setup. In addition, the relatively ballsy move of designing a dating app specifically with women in mind pays off. It’s the only app that clearly states plainly and prominently that it prohibits pornographic material, requires its users to respect one another, and has a code of conduct in place specifically to make it a safe and friendly place. We only found one other dating app that had a code of conduct — and it was hidden within the Terms of Use, which no one reads. The 24-hour time limit to connect with someone adds just enough pressure to say “hello,” so matches don’t languish and get reshuffled into the deck. And if you accidentally nixed someone? Just shake your phone to undo your rogue swipe.
Profiles are concise and settings are also pared down, like with Tinder, but swiping up allows you to scroll through additional photos instead of super-liking someone. This means that just because someone twitched their thumb up on your photo, you won’t have to see their profile first every time you open the app, even though you swipe left on their profile every time.
Hinge is kind of like Tinder. OK, it’s a lot like Tinder — but with a few key differences that make it better. Interface-wise, it looks like Tinder’s younger sister. But function-wise, it relies more on your Facebook friends to make connections for you. Hinge connects you through friends-of-friends-of-friends and shows you not just the people you have in common, but all the interests you have in common. It does this by having you answer a bunch of questions through a Tinder-like interface. Have you been to Berlin? Swipe right. Don’t play croquet? Swipe left. This makes answering questions far easier and less time-consuming, not to mention more fun. The questions themselves aren’t as asinine as those in some other dating apps, and give you a better sense of someone than 500 characters might.
I was able to uncover exactly how the scams work due to a chance encounter with Alina, one of the women involved, who felt weighed down by her collusion in what she called "emotional prostitution". She explained the whole sordid array of techniques, from a light impersonalised online-chatting version to a full-service chauffeur-driven platinum fraud, where men are rinsed of cash for a full week in Odessa, thinking they are cementing a lifelong relationship while actually they are being strung along on platonic dates that end with them dispatched to the airport with heavy hearts and empty wallets. Many of them come with ridiculous expectations, of course, but I am not sure that anyone deserves this treatment.

Russia Bride has to be one of the top online dating sites with more than 400,000 profiles already. However, these profiles are of the women as well as the western male who are looking forward to find a woman that they may be interested in. Although the website does offer a huge community of absolutely beautiful Russian women, there are a few downsides to the website as well. To begin with, the translation service that they have to offer is automated which is quite identical to the one that you can find on google. Furthermore, Russia Bride is not one of the mail order bride company. The website doesn’t offer the organized romance tours either which are a huge priority for most of the customers to say the least.

So you'r wondering what pet hates your Ukrainain date may have? Let's talk about the biggest pet hate for nearly all Ukrainian women and that is asking about her ex boyfriends or her asking about yours. You may be very tempted to ask her about other men she has met from the Ukrainian dating site but do not do this at any cost unless you want to get yourself into your first big argument. Im not saying she will not want to discuss this with you , but if she does then let her start the conversation on the subject. Another  topic you should stay away from is any past problems with your ex wife or girlfriend, this really can cause some big problems. 
Your best success with online dating in Ukraine will be in Kiev and Kharkiv. These two big cities have the largest pools of singles from which to choose. Men in the Ukraine are outnumbered as Ukraine has one of the lowest sex ratios (ratio of males to females) of any country in the world. In fact, the other countries in this region also have low sex ratios. Great news guys!
