Hi guys! Many thanks for stopping by!
I am Krystyna, a founder of 4 International dating blogs. So I am a blogger, author, speaker and coach… Wow, many things 🙂 I am passionate about helping people succeed in International dating!
Many readers ask me: Why did you start your dating blogs? What was happening in your life when you started it?
Find my story below!
Born in Kiev, Ukraine, but raised in the Crimea on the northern coast of the Black Sea, in 2002, I moved to Frankfurt, Germany. In 2010, I earned my Master’s degree in Turkish, English and Italian Studies at the Goethe Univerisity of Frankfurt on the Main.
Also in 2010 I started dating a German guy who became my husband 2 years later.
I was confused by intercultural differences so I decided to start put my thoughts and ideas about International dating and relationship together.
As it was very cool to have a personal blog 10 years ago (Instagram did not exist that time!), I found two blogs: Ukrainian dating blog and Ukrainian dating stories. A few years later I found AsianDatingJournal.
From 2014 until 2018 I and my family resided in London, UK. In 2018 we moved to a beautiful sunny island Malta. We love our life in the South enjoying sun, sea, delicious food and vine.
A few years ago I started Doves-of-Love.com, initially in English. In 2020, I redesigned the site in German so that I can share my experiences in German as well.
I ultimately found my calling in helping Western men meet outstanding foreign / Asian women.
Having a wide range of interests including Sociolinguistics, Gender Studies, intercultural relationships and online dating makes me, gentlemen, the very best personal International / Asian dating blogger.
International dating blogging is my calling
Putting this knowledge together, I have the ability to understand the challenges of intercultural dating.
Many of my tips and advice is based a lot of my personal experience as I have been in a relationship with a wonderful Western man for over 10 years and have two amazing boys together.
It has not always been easy – our dating, relationship and marriage. But we are working hard to make our family happy and stable. And we still learn how to deal with intercultural differences!
Being a Ukrainian woman, I have a unique ability to understand the cultural differences between Western men and foreign women.
Having lived in Germany, the UK and Malta has given me an eye into the Western mind, allowing to be a great relationship blogger for the Western men who read my blogs.
To keep our relationship and marriage happy and stable we have to work really hard. So I have listened to many relationship podcasts, read a lot of books and articles and talked to many experts. I am very proud that we are together for more than 10 years.
If you are looking to date a beautiful and intelligent Ukrainian woman, then it is a great idea to read through all of Krystyna’s blogs, Doves-of-Love.com (International dating guide in four languages: German, English, Swedish and Norwegian), Ukrainian Dating Blog and Ukrainian Dating Stories. The chances are that someone else has been in the exact same situation that you are, and reading Krystyna’s advice is a great way to navigate through the challenges of Internatinal / Asian dating.
Blogger with a lot experience and passion
So, if you would like to date or start off a relationship on the right foot with a foreign woman, just follow my articles on AsianDatingJournal and find out what the best ways to court ladies from Thailand, Japan or China are.
I have been a dating coach and blogger for over 10 years.
My passion is helping Western guys to start an Asian dating adventure, not get scammed, find a serious and honest wife for life and deal with intercultural differences in an Asian-Western relationship.
I am happy to share my knowledge about mail order brides from Asia as this is one of the most common way that foreign women come to the Western world.
There are also online dating and matchmaking services which set up tours and dates for interested men. Most importantly of all, I would like to to give men the best chances to have success finding their dream women.
Speaker at iDate in 2016
In July 2016, I was invited to be a speaker on the iDate, the biggest internet dating industry conference in the world.
I spoke about online dating agency ratings and their impact on revenues. In this challenging session, I discussed the International dating and matchmaking agency market and especially how I rated their services.
The Internet Dating and Dating Industry Conference provides insight into the matchmaking, internet dating and social networking industry. It serves as the industry’s largest event

Your life motto – Never give up! 🙂
Do you have the perfect marriage? – There are no perfect marriages. In general, the term “perfect” is very subjective. The main thing is that a marriage brings satisfaction, security and harmony to both partners. And I have them in my marriage.
