As some of us know, many American men and international tourists are flocking over to Ukraine for women. After looking into dating sites, visiting Ukraine for 3 months and reading various sources of information, here is my opinion. If you are high-status man (good-looking, well-educated, good job)...

The club and bar scene is going to vary wildly in between Ukrainian cities. Ukraine is a very big country and different regions have different mindsets. Odessa and Kiev are very cosmopolitan, the East and the Center- not so much. The West is Catholic and can be tolerant or intolerant depending on...

The people are the most self-congratulatory, self-obsessed lot I’ve ever encountered in a city populous outside of San Francisco, not to mention socially-inept and awkward. Talking with your average Seattleite is like talking to a sixteen year old kid with Aspergers who spends 2/3rds of their time...

India is the most dreadful place on earth. India is not the "biggest" democracy in the world, as all Indians say, but it is the world's biggest HYPOCRISY. It's all "peaceful" and wonderful before you get hepatitis B or E from drinking or eating there. Then you're out of commission for months due to...

The fear of outsiders and the inability to get to know someone new, combined with the city's vastly diverse population,...

Many say the Spanish are lazy, but that’s not it. There’s something else, intangible, that’s developed in the culture and history. The children of Spain aren’t raised to follow their dreams. School has become, for the most part, just a place for passing exams, never for debate, discussion or...

The red light district and the "coffee shops" that legally sell marijuana are the only argument against blandness, but I see those more as tourist gimmicks than really Dutch elements.. My observations of Dutch people: Tall and attractive; very wooden, stoic, and somewhat unfriendly and rude; very...

NYC is for people who like a lot of stimulation and the opportunity, not the guarantee, of being very successful at whatever they end up doing. NYC is littered with people who have money but don't care about meaningful relationships. There's a HUGE rich/poor divide, and that's means people in...
