and Italian have a lot in common. Here are some common differences and
similarities and between Ukrainians and Italians. All the information below
was provided by our Ukrainian ladies’ clients:
Italians and Ukrainians are very alike.
Though if there is one main difference between them it is that Italian
people are much more friendly and sociable in their attitude and
communication with their friends. That is why they occasionally say:
“Italians are cheerful Ukrainians”. Many people explain it by differences in
life standards and climate. Warm and sunny Italy shows in the temper of its
people, but frosty and cold Ukraine makes its people more cautious and
In Ukraine it is common thing to avoid
laws, negotiate deals and bribe to officials. It is because of that
Ukrainian system of government prevents people there from doing most things
in a legal, simple and easy. Ukrainian women that visit Italy observe that
this is a widespread difficulty for both countries. That is why as in
Ukraine, Italians are likely to proceed beyond the law as well.
Sometimes Italian logical thinking is
very irrational to Western people, which is just like Ukrainian. It is in
fact very logical to Italians themselves, but with a deeper understanding of
the customs and traditions in general to see it and the same with Ukrainian
people. Something that may seem illogical to some people can be completely
justified and normal to a Ukrainian woman.
Another characteristic that makes
Italians and Ukrainians alike is that most of them can criticize their
country but will never let you to criticize it. Italians regularly express
their disgust and irritation with their country and politics. But, when a
foreigner criticizes Italy, they will immediately start defending it.
Another difference between Ukrainians and
Italians lies in their family ties. People in Ukraine become independent
very early. But in Italy, family ties are so strong that a man may sometimes
never leave his parent's even if he started his own family. Which situation
is bad and which one is good? No one knows. But for Ukrainian women used to
early-maturing children and independent men, it is very surprising in
Ukraine to see 4 years old children in diapers and pacifiers, or a mature
man living in the same flat with his parents.
Quotes from the web:
- I've met Ukrainians and I yet have to
meet an ugly Ukrainian woman, it's not a matter of beauty. If you want to
marry a screeching Western feminist who'll sue you for more than half your
possessions in the absolutely guaranteed outcome of a divorce, please be our
guest. Mind you, I don't say that the Western feminists have it all wrong,
since the Western man can be really nasty piece of work too. I am simply
talking about women who have another vision of marriage than the current
Western one, period.
- A loving and committed relationship
is one of life's greatest accomplishments and joys. Loving relationships are
the foundation of a meaningful life and can be our anchor amid life's
uncertainties and difficulties.
