Imagine this scenario: after several months of chatting on HRB, a man has found two or three women he’d like to meet in person. He’s planning a trip to Ukraine and would like to meet each potential match. However, he feels guilty about setting up multiple meetings. Should he only meet with one woman per trip? The answer is no. Here’s why.
The first thing to keep in mind is that even couples who seem perfect together online can have no chemistry in person. When this happens, it’s good to have other options. Though it’s disappointing when a seemingly great match doesn’t work out, it's a normal part of the dating process. Plus, many men have hit it off with alternate dates, so men shouldn’t fret if their “first choice” lady isn't a love match.
At times, a woman may have to cancel a scheduled meeting due to work, illness, or a family emergency. This is another time where other multiple options are good. Men can minimize the risk of cancellations, by coordinating their schedules with a woman's and arranging dates well in advance; however, stuff happens, and there are guarantees.
While it’s acceptable, and even advisable, to set up multiple meetings when traveling to Eastern Europe, it’s also important to be discrete. While the women know that many men meet up with more than one woman, they don’t want to hear about the other ladies or think of themselves as back up dates. Tact and discretion are the best way to avoid hurt feelings and awkward encounters.
Meeting with multiple women is a normal part of the Russian dating process. In fact, it's the smart thing to do. If you’re planning a trip to Ukraine, don’t hesitate to schedule more than one date.
