The Ultimate Guide to Belarusian Girls (What It’s Like to Date Them)

Belarusian girls are generally beautiful, friendly and easy-going. Feminine and open to getting in a relationship with foreigners, women from Belarus are amazing!

Make no mistake, though: ladies from Belarus are just as independent as you would expect from a woman in the West (if not more). So basically, Belarusian girls are ideal, right?

Many people I know who have been together with a woman from Belarus – either short term or long term – would say that they are.

Today we’re going to check out this ultimate guide to women in Belarus and look at all the Pros and Cons that come from dating one so that you can become an expert – or at least know what to expect.

Speaking of dating Belarusian women – I’ll start with the answer to the most burning question ever: where to meet Belarusian girls? Short answer: here.

We’ll get a bit more in depth with that website soon – but make sure you create an account now if you want to quickly meet real ladies from Belarus that want to start a relationship and are VERY foreigner / expat friendly.

Eastern European Girls Vs. Independence

I know you like Eastern European women. If not, you wouldn’t be reading this article, right?

But Belarusian girls take Eastern European awesomeness to another level. Now, don’t get me wrong: Russian and Ukrainian women are also very beautiful, feminine, and relationship-minded. But they also have a tendency to depend a bit too much on their men.

Here is how the world works for most traditionally raised Russian girls. They do their thing (as in studies and get a job) but they do not expect to feed a family on that.

When Russian (and Ukrainian) girls go ‘bad,’ they usually turn into the gold digger or sugar baby type we all want to stay away from.

This happens in most parts of the world, for sure – but we’re sticking to this geographical region today.

Belarusian women, on the other hand, are different based on my personal experience with them. Which is surprising, but I won’t complain!

Russian girls, for example, will usually be more superficial than most. To them, dating is purposeful and the goal is to find a decent husband.

That decent husband is expected to take care of her and the family financially, while her primary role in the marriage would be keeping the house beautiful and to raise the children. This is the traditional way of thinking, at it’s still pretty much valid even today.

Guys don’t always realize that, but a relationship with Russian or Ukrainian women is not really equal. To them, this is natural but to you, it’s not always ‘sugar and spice and everything nice’.

Yes, she might ask you for shopping money… three times a week. No, she would not split the bill.

Not on the first date, not on the second one and most likely never. It’s just how things generally are in that area (sure, there are exceptions, but they’re not the norm!).

So if you’re not comfortable with that, dating a Belarusian girl instead might be the right thing for you!

Belarusian Women Are Amazing!

Belarusian girls do it all and are almost flawless. I was simply blown away by the ones that I met.

In other words, here’s a quick summary of what I found Belarusian women to be like:

  • They care about their looks, 24/7. Beauty is non-negotiable for them and they will put effort into their looks no matter how busy they might be.
  • They take care of the guy beside them. She will be the leader of your cheer squad every day. And she’s also a great cook, I guarantee it.
  • They keep the house and bring up the kids (if and when they have any). Belarusian women tend to want children earlier in life than in other parts of the world, but they generally stay in amazing shape afterwards.

You can literally never be sure if that cutie over there doesn’t have a kid already. Which might put you in some awkward situations – but is a major upside in the long run.

  • They have a career (and a great education, too). Women in Belarus do provide for themselves after finishing university. They don’t feel entitled to their partner’s money, as it should be the case in our modern society

So yes, that says it all, really. Don’t expect to impress Belarusian girls with your ‘superior education’ because theirs is usually just as good.

In fact, women in Belarus are probably the most intelligent date you would have had in years. Yes, while still looking like a Victoria Secret angel. That is essentially a given.

What Do Belarusian Women Like?

Belarusian girls appreciate manliness – but they hate the showing off. The opposite is true for some Russian women, although definitely not all.

Belarusian ladies are like those in the East because:

  • They are over dating immature boys (which often excludes many local options for that).
  • The guy is still expected to take the lead in a relationship.
  • They appreciate nice gestures and they like to be treated like ladies.
  • Dating is never just a game, Belarusian girls are looking for a real man as a long-term partner.
  • They want to be respected for who they are, not considered a toy.

At the same time, Belarusian men could be dominant without having nothing going on below the surface.

You would see hoards of these local dudes, spending their dad’s money or whatever they earn in retail on glitzy clubs and expensive watches (to name a few). And the point is:

The fancy lifestyle does not impress Belarusian girls. The man who earned it does. 

A Belarusian woman is looking for a mature and stable life partner. Yes, not being broke will help.

But it will be your ambition, your passion, your drive, your mind that attracts her and not just the money. This is a great thing in the consumerist society that we live in today and few women are still genuine like that.

Where to meet Belarusian women

If you are in Belarus already, things are generally easy. The same methods that work in all countries work here also.

Your regular bars and pubs and clubs are all great places to get things started. Girls here are also pretty responsive to day game and cold approach – if that’s something you are comfortable with.

But by far the easiest way to meet them is to go old school and choose a premium dating site. Best choice in the area is Euro Cupid.

You will have only advantages if you choose it. Not only that you will only find girls that are actively looking for a relationship (so no time wasters), but you also have a bonus in their eyes.

Since Euro Cupid is a paid service, you show them that you are mature and financially stable enough to afford this.

You’re not there to play games and bootstrap it. You know what you want and you know where to search for that. These are all big bonuses, as we’ll see below.

And another huge advantage here is that the competition is minimal. Unlike Tinder (which is relatively popular too, but more of a hit than a miss in my own experience), there are fewer men there… so more chances for you to get noticed and impress the girl.

Not to mention the fact that you can start the “hunt” even before setting foot in Belarus. Can’t get better than that!

So definitely check this website out – I know nobody who did and wasn’t impressed. Click here to create your account today.

Family Is Everything To Belarusian Girls

family is everything in Belarus

Women of Belarus have a special (and scary) little deadline to complete. Of course, I am exaggerating a little bit here – but not by that much!

They have to find a husband before they turn 30.

Ideally, they should be married around 25-26. Any later than that and her entire extended family begins to worry.

And Belarusian families are so tightly knit that their opinion of their daughter’s life is the most important one to her.

There are a few important consequences of this.

First off, you have the ‘You are not dating the girl, you are dating her family’ issue.

You want to impress her mother. Her grandmother. Her other grandmother. Any aunts, great aunts, cousins and all sorts of other relatives, too. Sometimes also their friends and co-workers.

She will want to present you to them as soon as possible.

That is because of the second consequence.

Having a boyfriend, especially a fancy foreign guy is bragging rights for her. Your Belarusian girl would be showing you off.

But the marriage deadline puts her in a complicated position. On one hand, she has standards and understands that not everybody is in a rush to marry.

On the other, the clock is ticking and being 30 without a husband seems like a horrifying scenario.

That’s an old maid in this culture.

Truth be told, as time goes by, more and more girls in Belarus ignore the traditional family wishes and go the more independent way.

Things are changing for sure, so this is good news for those that are not really looking for a long term, “ends with marriage” relationship.

But I think that we already agreed that marrying a woman from Belarus is not really a bad option at all. On the contrary!

How Impress Babushkas to Win Your Girl

Beautiful Belarusian Girl

Babushkas are definitely not the ones you want to date (hopefully), but they are surprisingly key in dating Belarusian women. If you are not familiar, Babushka means grandmother.

Not just her grandmother, but also any elderly lady that knows your Belarusian girlfriend at least a little bit (and has an unhealthy interest in her love life).

A few examples of babushkas would include:

  • Her grandmothers.
  • Also her great grandmothers (Belarusian people live really long.)
  • Her granny’s sisters, cousins, and all sorts of other relatives.
  • The friends and ex-coworkers of her grandmother.
  • The ladies that hang out on the bench in front of her building and spend their day gossiping. These are especially important.

You want to impress the Babushkas in your Belarusian girl’s life because they will be the ones who influence the family opinion on you.

And the family opinion will decide if you get to date the girl, or if she dumps you because ‘she is not ready for a steady relationship just yet’.

Yes, that is one of the side effects of a matriarchal society. And if you are wondering where the grandfather is in this picture… he’s probably dead.

It is not the nicest thing to say but Belarusian men simply don’t live as long – so the babushkas eventually take power.

How to Win a Belarusian Girl’s Heart

Thankfully, you are probably already husband material in a Belarusian girl’s eyes. Make no mistakes, I am not implying you should only date in Belarus if you want to get married.

Rather, it is about her standards. And Belarusian girls have a lot of standards when it comes to long-term boyfriends (plus they don’t do much as far as one-night stands so this is your only shot).

Above all, you want to exude confidence, maturity, and leadership. I might have said a little too much in this article but here goes once again:

Belarusian girls are not looking for boys!

You have got to be a man. As in, a financially stable and relationship-minded. That cliché about girls wanting guys who remind them of their fathers stands 100%. Look and act like a man, that is what I am saying.

Your foreigner status is already major plus points in her book, but it’s not enough to win her heart.

A few extra tips to impress her and also gain the favor of the babushkas would be:

  • Manners, manners, manners. Open the door for her, offer to pay for dinner (even though you would eventually be taking turns), always say ‘Good morning/day/evening!’ when you meet a member of her family. And also when you pass the babushkas on the bench, no exceptions!
  • Small gestures. These don’t have to be actual gifts but rather taking an interest in her job or hobby, or even posting a photo together on social media. It’s the small things that matter and make a difference.
  • Speaking of social media, you have got to become Facebook official. Refusing to change your relationship status is a major offence.
  • Respect her, her family, and her culture. It wouldn’t hurt to show some enthusiasm about the food they are feeding you, too. The food in Belarus is actually really tasty, so you won’t have to lie!

Finally, the most stupid and effective advice of all – be yourself and have fun!

Since you’re generally in this for the longer term, you won’t be able to act as somebody else before too long. No point in doing that either.

Be who you are and you won’t find it difficult to impress at least a few ladies from Belarus (as long as you meet the criteria listed above).

Belarusian girls might be very different from what you are used to but they too are human. Don’t let their long legs and huge blue eyes intimidate you.

Wrapping up

As you can see, I hold Belarusian women very dear to my heart. They’re definitely in my top three, together with Indonesian girls and those in Thailand.

I really like them, not only based on my personal experience while in the country during my younger days, but also because they are feminine, beautiful and still independent. They are strong, educated and amazing partners.

So good luck in your quest to meeting an amazing woman from Belarus – it shouldn’t be too difficult. And don’t forget to share your thoughts and experiences in the comments down below.
