Even though love is a universal language, it is easy to misinterpret it when differences in culture step into the picture. The intentions may be there, but when you do something it ends up being misinterpreted because of cultural barriers. This makes it important to understand the nuances of someone’s culture before you decide to get serious in pursuing them.
Kazakhstan is an amazing country that is full of adventure, as long as you know where to look. However, the local men are quite possessive and do not take kindly to their women dating foreigners – in fact, it is not a shock if you find a man carrying a knife in public. Other nationalities you are likely to find are Ukrainians, Russians, Germans, Tatars and Uzbeks.
The same case applies to you if you are a foreign guy seeking a Kazakh woman as your partner. Arranged marriages are quite the norm; as it stems from hundreds of years of customs establishing peace and security. There are things you need to know, and things you need to avoid as much as possible.
Because of the hilly nature of the country as well as its size (it happens to be the largest landlocked country in the world), you should expect there will be changes in climatic conditions. When temperatures can go below -50oC in winter, in summer it is the direct opposite and various plants flourish.
You will experience all the four seasons, and the cold winter begins in November until April. The influence of very cold arctic winds produces a very intense cold. The springs are usually short, from April to mid-May – and be warned, they are usually unstable. The summers begin from mid to end of May and last until September, and the temperatures can increase until 35 or 40oC. Autumn then begins at the end of September and lasts until November.
What are some tourist attractions?
The country has abundant tourist attractions where you can meet Kazakh women as well. The best time to visit the country is between April and October. The country is also very big and its geography is very diverse, as its location includes two time zones and five climatic zones.
Some of these attractions include Astana, the capital city, Almaty’ the biggest cultural hub of the country; Aktau, the very picturesque town by the Caspian Sea; Taraz, the ancient city of the country; Lake Balkhash, the 15th largest lake in the world, and Baikonur, the city of spaceships, rockets and space missiles (it is under the Russian government). There is also Semey, another ancient city that can prove to be an interesting choice if you are into historical studies.
The capital Astana has a good range of connectivity, as the public network has trolley buses and bus transit systems, while there is a network of 63 registered taxis, and many more that are unofficial. It is possible for you to hire a car, regardless of whether you have a chauffeur or not. The buses within the city are from 49 companies, and the airport is served by ten bus companies.
The general driving speed is 70 km/h in rural areas and 120 km/h on highways. It is also preferable to move in convoys of two or more vehicles, and make sure the car is insured with a local insurer.
The country also has good and reasonable options for accommodation, dining and transport. The groceries in the country are relatively low-priced, and most of the goods you find are imports from Russia.
Because of the location of the country, it has many multi-nationals and cultures within it. The attraction of the country is not just the beautiful physical features and historical landmarks though – there is an abundance of very beautiful women that preserve their traditions and cultures deeply.
The state language is considered to be Kazakh, which is in a group of Turkic languages, although most of the population use Russian as their primary language. The women in the country are themselves influenced my numerous cultures and ethnicities; so expect proactive, very smart, and attractive women. They also adhere closely to their traditions, as their mothers raise them to value their families more than anything else.
The ladies are very self-sufficient, and it may intrigue you if you have little or no background of the country. They will also enjoy doing acts of service for their husbands or boyfriends, such as cooking for them. If you happen to be a cook, you can actually teach the lady some recipes – especially if you are looking to keep her for the long term.
It is important to remember one thing though – make sure you keep your life together, especially when looking for a Kazakh girl. Once she sees you are an organized guy, she will be more motivated to treat you well. There is also no need of wondering if she likes you or not; the culture is one of straightforwardness, so you will know soon enough if she likes you or not.
Nightlife and online dating
Just like other major cities, the nightlife is vibrant here and attracts people from elsewhere in the region. Almaty is particularly famous for its party atmosphere, regardless of whether you are heading out to a nightclub or a simple café. Depending on what you enjoy doing, you can make new friends quickly in any of these places (they do love foreigners), and they will treat you as an honored guest throughout the night.
However, if you are looking for wife material or a girlfriend, the nightclubs are not the best places to get them – only to have fun for that night. You will actually have an easier time finding them online.
Kazakhstan is an interesting country that is worth exploring, and the women are amazing. All of them are warm and very welcoming, and you will be treated well as you stay in the country. The nightlife is also one of the best, and you will definitely enjoy the energy of your stay there.
