    I heard Ukraine is dirt cheap and has some of the most beautiful girls in the world. I was just in Bulgaria and had a great time too. Eastern Europe is the best!

    Kiev nightlife turned out to be the worst night life for a regular man chasing regular beautiful Ukrainian women !!! I am so disappointed!! I tried to go to almost all the nightclubs in Kiev and it’s the same! As I approach a women i like, she speaks english so good sign, then we talk and after 5 minutes she says so you want to have a good time tonight? it’s 300$ !!! so she is just in nightclubs to find work ! almost all of them are…
    It is really a shame since they are so beautiful women!
    and the day I found a nice women, everything is going ok in the evening she even gives me her phone number and everything, and she says we will meet the next day, and the next day she disappears!

    It is crazy! Crazy women and crazy city!
    And some of you will think that maybe i am ugly or fat, or even old, well I am not and I can prove it. I am a normal french guy who is 31 years old and came to Ukraine to meet these beautiful ladies.

    So an advise if you want to come meet regular women in Ukraine avoid Kiev. this is what I’ve learned.
