I got married to a French man as I found him open-hearted, fascinating and gentle.
Even those who are quite successful quite often feel lonely and have problems with finding the proper partner for life.
I married in 1999 to a French man and now I am living in Toulon (the south of France).
The fact that struck me most of all when I had arrived in France, was the image of Ukrainian or Russian women that French people have: a little bit exacting, without ambitions, obedient (even imposed) in short cliches to antipodes of reality which make laugh.
Women in Russia and Ukraine like dating with foreigners since there is a big imbalance between number of men and women in these countries – there are about 12-15% more women than men including young people.
Western agencies usually start by placing ads in local Russian newspapers that promise to help women in search of a partner abroad. Usually a lady will send applications to 5-15 agencies that placed ads in the same newspaper.
