Why Some Ukrainian Women Don't Have the Internet at Home...

9. October 2012 by Christy 0 Comments

In North America and Western Europe, the majority of people have Internet access at home. Therefore, it's a bit of a surprise for men to learn that many ladies on Russian Love Match travel to introduction agencies to chat with foreign men online. What many Westerners don't realize is that Ukraine doesn't yet have the same Internet capabilities as countries in the West.


According to a report issued by Internet World Stats, around 15 million Ukrainians, or 33.9% of the population, were online as of December 31, 2011. For comparison, the number of users in the UK was 84.1% and 78.6% in North America. According to the Internet Association of Ukraine, 48% of Ukraine's population older than 15 have access to Internet (as of March 2012), and 31% of them access the Net daily. So while a number of Internet options exist – including dial up and broad band – many Ukrainians do not have the Internet at home and Internet usage is not as prevalent as it is in other countries.

When communicating with the women of Russian Love Match, keep in mind that they may not have an Internet connection at home and can log on only when their schedules allow a trip to the agency. Even if a woman does have home-based access, there are many reasons she might choose to use an agency’s computers instead. For example, the connection is likely faster, the agency provides interpreters and translators to assist with communication, and the ladies can socialize with other women looking for love abroad, among other things.


While some of the women on RLM have Internet access at home, many others do not and must instead rely on introduction agencies to chat with Western men.
