Tips for Your First Date with an Ukrainian Gay Boy

Tips for Your First Date with an Ukrainian Gay Boy in Chernihiv Ukraine

So you have a date with a handsome Ukrainian gay boy but have never gone out with one before. You are concerned about the cultural differences and want to make sure you do not do anything wrong and most importantly, do not want to offend him. It is common to have questions. Along with the cultural differences and concerning yourself with social etiquette you have those first date jitters to worry about. First and foremost, calm down, relax and get excited about the date. Soon you will be across the table from a gorgeous gay! To make sure everything goes smoothly, follow the tips below.

Look Your Best

Ukrainian gay boys prefer well-dressed Western gay men. Of course you do not have to go over the top but stick with reasonably fashionable clothes that fit well. Also pay attention to grooming. Get a clean shave, make sure your hair is neat and put on cologne.

Bring Him Stuffed Animal or Plush Toy

Stuffed animals and Plush toys are big in Ukrainian society. For this reason Ukrainian gay boys tend to really like them. It is a simple, inexpensive gift that he will appreciate much more than boys you may have dated in the past.

Choose a Relaxed Date Setting

Choose a relaxed setting so that he warms up to you more quickly. Take things slow and make him feel comfortable. Allow conversation to flow and do not hesitate to tell a few jokes. Ukrainian boys like a sense of humor. If there is a bit of a language barrier be patient. His English may not be perfect but great conversation is still possible.

Be Assertive

On the gay date, especially the first one, take the dominant role without coming off as overly assertive. Decide where the date will take place and then invite him. You want to show him that you are a self-assured man that can make the decisions. Ukrainian mature gay men tend to be very assertive but you do not want to take this approach. The goal is to take the lead without coming across as controlling or bossy.

Do Not Spend a Lot of Money

For the first date avoid spending a lot of money. You want to plan a date that is nice but not too nice. Excessive spending will overshadow the actual connection you are trying to make. Shift your focus to great conversation and having a successful acquaintance.

Pay for Dinner

Ukrainian boys like a gentleman. Always pay for dinner on dates. Going Dutch is not an option unless you do not want any second date.

Do Not Be Surprised by Closeness During Conversation

In Ukrainian culture it is not uncommon to stand close to one another while speaking. Casual touch is also a normal occurrence during conversation.


The tips above will greatly increase your chance of having a successful first date with an Ukrainian dream boy. The important thing is to lead with your chivalrous foot and treat him well. The first date is all about becoming more acquainted and seeing if there is potential for a relationship. Just because he is Ukrainian doesn't mean that he is drastically different than other gay boys you have dated in the past. Enter the date with a positive attitude, show off your great personality and have fun.
