On the background of a growing feminism Ukrainian women are known for their being kind and tender beauties, not spoiled with ideas about gender equality, smart, communicative, obedient, valuing family, loving their children and husbands.

Myth N 2
Openness. With all their ‘good manners’ Ukrainian women are still behind American and European ones in their openness. A woman’s smile is always attractive, while a serious face is repulsing. Men in the whole world feel it. A myth about an excessive seriousness of Ukrainian women is still alive in the internet. Men are afraid of faces emotions of which are hard to read.
Myth N 3
Sexuality. A myth about Spanish and South-American beauties with rosy flowers in their black hair doesn’t prevent Ukrainian girls from being known as hot, sexy and tender lovers.

They don’t like kisses and signs of affection in public places and in the streets.
Myth N 4
Character. Ukrainian ladies have a strong character and are keepers of hearth and home. The fact that a family is standing on the first place for them is a very important factor for men. Ukrainian women often take problems of foreign men closely. And men can’t first understand a reason for such a care. Then they get used to Ukrainian women treating them like kids.
Myth N 5
Ukrainian brides often use their married status as a possibility to have a ‘sweet life’ abroad. ‘The new ideology’ of modern girls, their love for money, makes many of them look for a ‘big purse’. It gave birth to a myth about useful aims of marriages with foreigners. Voyages to foreign countries with the aim of earning money often end for Ukrainian beauties with prostitution or just with a search for millionaires (with the final aim of a divorce). Young girls of 18-25 who found themselves in a moral turbulence zone have their own life philosophy – ‘Nobody can restrict me from living a luxury life.’
Myth N 7
Ukrainian press criticizes wives from Ukraine leaving their country in order to get married with a foreigner. If some years ago all fashionable magazines published interesting stories about a girl who got acquainted with a foreign men by chance (always with a romantic happy end), now there are more reports about an American or European husband who killed his Ukrainian wife. A myth about a luxury life with a foreign men is now changed to an opposite one.
