Many websites will tell you the same thing that I am going to say now: SECURITY and LOVE. Is it true? YES and NO.
Or not ONLY.
Those two things are the most important. I have read thousands of women’s forms with requirements to a potential partner, and almost all of them say: “I want my future husband to love and understand me.”
The most popular requirement you will see in women’s questionnaires is “financially secure”. In short, it means, you must have at least a stable job and be able to provide for a family of 3.
You do not have to have a six-figure annual income. Having a stable job is good enough; but the better your financial situation, the easier you will make contacts with nice Ukrainian ladies, and the less hassle you will get from the USCIS (former INS) in bringing your fiancÃ©e into the country.
IN NO WAY DOES THIS MEAN THAT Ukrainian WOMEN ARE AFTER YOUR MONEY. Definitely not! However, women have suffered so much in Russia with everyday surviving, they want to make sure it never happens to them and their families again. A Ukrainian wife will stick with you through any turn of fortune, whether you go bankrupt or hit a jackpot. But to consider you a viable option, she must be confident that you are not an unemployed hobo.
Your good financial standing may impress women at first, but then the other factors will count: you must develop a relationship that works, and this involves mostly emotional factors. I know a case where a woman refused a guy with a 500K income in favor of an ordinary teacher, because she liked him more personally. From the sidelines it may seem stupid, but I would probably do the same if I were her.
Your wealth or handsome appearance may possibly even have a negative effect. I know cases where a woman did not try to pursue an acquaintance to a rich, good-looking guy who was highly interested in her just because she didn’t consider herself good enough. He seemed too good to be true to her, and this made her feel insecure.
Love for Ukrainian women includes commitment. Since long distance relationships don’t make much sense without possibility of being together in the future, the women need assurance you are ready to offer this commitment. If you are not looking for a marriage partner, Ukrainian ladies won’t take you seriously. They are not looking for pen pals.
