The worst work on Earth – Ukrainian “translator”

Everything comes with experience and the younger person is, the less she understands how this world and its basic principles of behavior are arranged. There is a well-known phrase that says: Treat people the way you would like them to treat you. Tell me, wouldn’t it be nice if it really worked, but for this it seems necessary only to start with your own self. It’s simple and difficult at the same time.

Young people, especially students, are often ready to do any work to earn quick money. This is especially true for Ukraine, where the average wage level is rather low and the national currency is unstable. Most jobs in Ukraine are paid that low that do not even allow you to survive, so any work that brings more than $600 a month is considered good. Also to find in Ukraine work on any occupation one must have experience and where to get this experience if no one hires you without experience? There is such a vigorous circle. As of today, the real wages of young specialists in Ukraine are somewhere between $150 a month (and such work still has to be found), whereas the actual amount needed per month to pay for housing, buy food and pay the fare is at least $400. That’s why the students are trying to “snatch” for any work. If a student in Ukraine is studying for an interpreter, philologist or teacher of foreign languages, to find a job he requires practice, otherwise he will not get a job as a translator and as a teacher many do not want to work, because the salary of a young specialist who came to work as a teacher at the school in Ukraine immediately after graduation as of 2019 is about $200 a month, and the living wage, as already mentioned earlier, is at least $400 a month. It is not surprising that you can often find announcements on Ukrainian job search sites as ‘interpreter to work at marriage agency, experience is not required, candidate needs to have good level of English language’ and no wonder that often young students philologists are paying attention to such announcements.

Sattva, Rajas, Tamas – Three Areas of Life and Money Making

All the money earned in this world are divided into three main ways of earning. The dark side (tamas) – money earned on suffering, death, alcohol, drugs, weapons; side of passion (rajas) – money earned on desires, emotions and human vices; the side of goodness (sattva) – the money earned on the sincere help of people, on useful affairs, on the dissemination of useful and developing knowledge, on the application of knowledge that help other people. It is believed that how person earns money will affect the life of the person who earned them. You can believe it or not, but this works and it influences the lives of many people, which you personally can trace among your friends, for example.

Young Ukrainian students engaged in making “dishonest” money working as so-called “translators” in so-called “dating agencies” often do not realize what consequences in their lives this can lead to. However, there are those who subconsciously feel that they are doing something wrong and constantly are in the struggle with themselves, where, on the one hand, they have moral values ​​and, on the other hand, money. Here we wrote about the story of a Ukrainian who worked in a similar “agency”. Some of them resign, not working even for a month, and some people torture themselves for years by such work and then regret that during this time already could get a good experience in well-known companies. In any case, all gullible Americans, Canadians, Australians and other foreigners should know that if they pay for communication, then often it’s just a trick, so you should not believe in happy illusions. Often a foreigner comes to Ukraine after such live chat communication, and nobody meets him because his chat interlocutor either does not exist of has no idea about their communication.

Both sides of the medal

Not all Ukrainian dating agencies cheat, the same as not all foreigners who are looking for dating with Ukrainian girls online are sincere and lonely. Often girls tell about sexually harassed perverts, who send photos of their nude parts of the body and require the same. It’s scary to even imagine how such a “groom” or “boyfriend” can behave in real life, if he will meet a Ukrainian girl. There are even volunteers in Ukraine who look for such foreigners and perverts on the Internet and bring them “over clean water”. As we can see, there is a deception and unfortunate consequences on both sides. What to do? It’s very simple, you need to remind yourself the truth that we have written at the beginning of this article: Treat people the way you would like them to treat you. If you are an American who is looking for a girl or a future wife, do not hurt anyone, do not deceive anyone and be informed – do not look for a bride in a place where she could not be present by all logical means. You will not buy a cucumber in the store of building materials, so you will not find a true love on the sites that focus only on earnings. If people on such sites used the principles of sattva (good) then they would create their sites in order to help lonely people get acquainted, to help them meet each other, but they are basically guided by the principles of rajas (passion) to earn as much as possible for the shortest possible time. However, often foreign clients themselves pay for services and develop this passion (rajas) because they require nude photos, write sexual content phrases and develop this passion. As you can see, the principle You reap what you saw works everywhere, even in the field of “online dating”. Therefore, regardless of which side you are – a client located in America, or a girl (guy) who pretends to be seeking for love Ukrainian, you must remain a human being first of all and remember that the Earth is round, so everything we do will come back to us.

A true story how dating scam schemes work in Ukraine

When average American guy, let’s name him John, comes up with an idea to find Ukrainian girl for dating online he assumes the procedure is pretty simple. Something if he would like to buy a new laptop. What does he do in this case? He uses search engine to find websites which sell laptops and chooses model he likes with appropriate for him characteristics. Next step – he checks other websites for price and then he orders laptop. When the same guy starts looking for Ukrainian girls online he rules the same logic – finds the most trusted dating websites, decides whether he would like to date the girl with black, blond or red hair, blue or grey eyes and so on and final result – he pays for access to profiles and hopes now he’s got what he wants! And here he stumbles upon huge problem. Everything would be ok if he was looking for American girl on such website (s), but Ukrainian girls just do not register on these, predominantly American, sites.

Why Ukrainian girls do not register on dating sites?

1. In Ukraine dating culture is on more old school, traditional level. Dating via websites or dating apps is considered not serious thing where there is impossible to find real soulmate.

2. Dating online is not widespread in Ukraine because Ukrainian girls have lots of attention in real life and they have no need to look for boyfriend on the Internet.

3. Level of Ukrainian girls’ English is either very poor or they do not speak English at all.

4. If Ukrainian girl still hardly decides to find overseas boyfriend or husband she uses the services of Ukrainian dating or (and) marriage agency(ies). And here there are two possible ways:

a) Respectable Ukrainian dating agencies really create profiles of real Ukrainian women and translate information about them into English. Later communication between potential overseas fiancé (boyfriend) and Ukrainian woman is provided through intermediary who is fluent in English. Very often client from the US or Canada has to wait for long to get the answer for the mail he’d sent to desirable Ukrainian lady. Actually, this is not the worst option, but real communication is possible only when visiting Ukraine and while meeting with particular woman. Although even here you probably would have to find interpreter because Ukrainian lady would have either poor English or complete lack of English language skills.

b) Scam ‘agencies’ which only pretend to offer real dating services. They imitate work of real dating agencies, but what they do is actually horrible. They create fake profiles with fake pictures where the main aim is to attract trustful foreigner by different possible ways – sexy picture, for example. If it is chat than you can’t see the face of your interlocutor and that’s why many guys actually text with someone else, but not a person from the picture. Usually Ukrainian girls and guys (!) of different ages who speak fluent English work in such “agencies”. Recently we wrote true story of two Ukrainian girls who work in such ‘dating sphere’ in Ukrainian city of Zhytomyr and you can read it here. Usually these people who work there are graduates of Ukrainian philological Universities with advanced or professional level of English that’s why American, Australian or Canadian on the other side of the monitor thinks he chats with real Ukrainian girl and can’t believe at his luck to find such woman in Ukraine as fast. Scammers went even more inventive. They hire girls who chat online on video chat and as you might assume this is paid much better. The problem is that if man from overseas decides to visit Ukraine he would never find real girl.

Confession of Ukrainian guy who has worked for such pseudo “agency”

Now he works in one of Lviv IT offices, but for less than a month he tried himself as ‘translator’ in one of such scam agencies. He says he could not stand working there anymore because it was enormously hard in terms of morality for him. All the work is chatting with foreign guys who think you are woman from the picture. The longer you chat, the more money you earn. Foreigner pays whole sum of money and huge part goes to “agency” and percentage goes to “translator”. As our confessor says, the hardest was to live with all that because he was creating some imaginary image of pretty and intelligent Ukrainian woman and overseas men often felt in love with that non-existing in reality image. He also said that such “agencies” often do not pay all “earned” by translator. When he decided to quit they did not pay him certain amount of money. But he did what he could – on all chats and forums where it was possible he has added information about this “agency” as about scammers where recommended to stay away from them.

Sum up

As you see, it is always needed to think using your brain, but not… yes, not to be ruled by hormones and emotions as this is one more reason why scammers flourish on the Web. When man has insurmountable desire there are not many things which can stop him from making mistake – paying money for non-existing services which he believes exist. Emotions, hormones and all this chemistry controls the body of a man at the time when he is getting his credit card from the pocket that is why it is important to remain your brain cold and consciousness in every life situation.

Ukrainian girls online – story told by Ukrainian guy

My hobby is making websites, I used to do it to earn money only, but then I realized it is much more satisfaction when you combine both – share your experience about some topic you know, life, whatever and, of course, when you earn on this as well. I am Ukrainian guy, I was studying foreign languages and I like to share stuff about Ukraine in English. This time I am starting to share information about Ukrainian girls because who could know it better that Ukrainian guy who spend not less than 30 years living in Ukraine.

Why Ukrainian girls online and what I can say about this today? Why this online topic exactly? Because I have something to share.

In Ukraine in small towns it is very common to go downtown on Friday night and on the weekend. Maybe, as in the rest of the world. I live in apartment block and on the floor above me lives one old granny. She has granddaughter and I know her since she was a child playing dolls in the yard. Now she is about 23 and she is married to American guy. She was working in online dating agency and helped to “connect” American guys and Ukrainian girls together – dating and marriage agency. When you work in the online store and have lots of Chinese stuff, you may choose better items for you and buy them for cheap price – the same when you work in online dating agency – you may choose the best suitable American and use agency to do it for free. That is how the girl I know did.

How did she found a job in online dating in Ukraine?

While studying foreign languages at the University in Ukraine. She wanted to earn some money and started to earn well. Actually, it is very popular in Ukraine when girls who study foreign languages work in online dating agencies and write tons of correspondence every day under different names. So today she is Natasha and Tatiana and Ola and tomorrow she is Irina and Oksana. It is well paid job and many girls use their skills in English to work there. In addition, you don’t have to know English perfectly, but these girls know it well because they are studying it to become translators, interpreters, teachers of English.

Who are these Ukrainian girls who work in Ukrainian online dating agencies?

The first Ukrainian girl I would like to tell about

Let’s come back to my experience. I was telling about my neighbor – granny and her granddaughter. She is 10 years younger than me. When I was 27 my friend had wedding, his future wife had a cousin – the same girl who is granddaughter of my neighbor granny and who works at the dating agency. She had a boyfriend at that time and they were both together present at the same wedding of my friend. Was this girl pretty? According to American standards she is model – slim, nice face, eyes, but in Ukraine I would tell she is average, something little less than pretty. As for me she had terrible character. She was annoying, did not have any manners – such a Barbie without good manners, very mean one. Before wedding we had bachelor party and girls had something the same for girls and we met together later in the club and then at the house of my friend. I can tell about manners of that girl because for few days we lived in one house. Maybe she was not that bad, she was with her boyfriend, but she was not good either. Just a girl from Ukraine I knew for a long time, but now she was grown up. She was studying English at the University at one of Ukrainian cities and should become a teacher of English or translator. While studies she has found job offer in Ukrainian dating agency and went to work there. She combined work and studies. Some say she had dates with her future American husband at that time already, but it was at the time she had her boyfriend. I can’t prove it, but I would say it is highly possible. As the result she graduated, broke up with her boyfriend, her American guy visited her few times and they made wedding in Ukraine. That is the story of Ukrainian girl who worked in Ukrainian dating agency and has found nice young American guy for husband. Most of young Ukrainian girls are not that lucky and often they get some old American pervert online. The girl I know used her connections in dating sphere according to her work and has found herself husband.

The second Ukrainian girl I know, who works in online dating agency in Ukraine – her story written by me

I can’t tell that much about this girl, because I know her not that well as previous girl. The thing is she is the same age as first girl I wrote about, she is also from my town and she also studied at the same University where the first girl and she was studying English as the foreign language. She also practiced English while she was at school few years before this because we visited the same teacher of English for private lessons. Once I even walked her home after some Friday night party but it did not finished anything like sex for me although many were telling she is easily “affordable” and some even said she rarely takes shower and has smell “there” so maybe I was lucky that day as there was nothing between us. As for more – I can’t say anything interesting about her, she is not married yet, but some people say she has foreign boyfriend. She looks gorgeous, but uses way too much of makeup as for me.

Are all Ukrainian girls like that? Do they dream to find American husband online?

No. Definitely not. Among let’s say hundred girls I know more or less closely only two work in online dating sphere and have some relationship with foreigners. 4 girls I know are either married or dating foreigner, so I guess it is not much. Many have Ukrainian boyfriends and even though some of them are going to work abroad they are not looking for boyfriends and husbands there, but come back to Ukraine and some are going abroad with their Ukrainian husbands or boyfriends. So it rather depends on personal qualities of character, family in which the girl was grown in and many other factors. As you see – everything is pretty personal. By the way, the first girl I was telling about comes from Ukrainian intelligent family of teachers, her father is a teacher of math and mom also works as a school teacher.
