In general, most Russian women and Ukraine women seeking men abroad would be happy to consider men from Western Europe, Northern America or Australia as potential candidates for dating and marriage.
Elena’s Models is a specialized dating site for Russian, Ukrainian and Eastern European women seeking contacts with western men with a view of a long-term relationship and marriage, where women listing their profiles are ready to relocate if they meet a suitable partner, and as such, the findings above would only reflect the dating preferences of women who decided to seek a partner abroad and not of the general population of single women in Russia and Ukraine.
However, even inside this very special niche, 62% of women in the survey stated they would be happy to marry a western man living in their country.
The survey results confirm that immigration is not the primary motivator for the majority of women using international dating services but rather the search for a suitable partner, which was also confirmed by 75% of women saying it’s more important for them to find their dream man no matter where he lived, rather than a man from their preferred country.
