Kazakh women are an unusual choice for western men but this guide to Kazakh mail order brides may let you know what you are in for. We will go over what Kazakh women are like, what it’s like to marry one and how to meet and date a beautiful girl from Kazakhstan.
Why Do Kazakh Women Want to Marry Foreign Men?
The Kazakhstan economy is mostly built on top of a booming oil economy, but as with most countries in the world, there is a deep divide between the rich and the poor. Most women who go out in search of Western men come from the poorer parts of the country.
A good comparison of Western economies relative to the Kazakh’s would be the $1 to over 300 Kazakh tenges. On average, any person not from the country is considered to be of very high status. High status people are valuable members of the society and even more valuable catches.
Being pursued by younger women shouldn’t surprise you too much. You may find the experience different – it’s rather easy to get used to it with time.
Considering the country has over 130 different ethnicities, you’re going to get a lot of mixed race women. As we all know, a mixture makes for some spectacular looking females. Like in many countries, there is a significant gap between the rich and the poor and that means rich guys can take another wife.
Young but poor girls are ever hopeful that a wealthy, older man will take them on as the second wife. It seems that Kazakh women have been categorized as being beautiful. If you mix Asian, Russian, German and Mongol into a female form, you are going to be pleasantly surprised.
Known as homemakers rather than glamour girls, a Kazakh woman is going to want a long-term relationship rather than a two-week fling. But how do you get to meet them?
Romancing Kazakh Ladies
Being stuck in the middle of a few other countries, if you want to visit Kazakhstan, that in itself will represent a bit of a challenge. You will be relieved to know that there is a dating site specifically for Kazakh ladies. Let’s assume you register with a dating site to at least meet some of these lovely ladies online. The standard rules apply when starting an online relationship.
- Make yourself available by registering with a couple of dating services. If there is a free one – great. Otherwise, pay the necessary fee, register and put a few photos into your profile.
- Sort through your replies to find the women that attract you and that can speak a bit of English. Try not to get into that paying for a translator, write a letter scene. It’s a bit expensive and adds a third party to your efforts to be romantic. 99.5% of the population is literate, surely a reasonable percentage can chat in English to some degree.
- Although the population is mainly Muslim, they are not strict Muslims. Nevertheless, crude conversation and disrespect won’t get you far. That goes for all online dating, by the way. Be sweet, a little romantic and genuine.
- No money means no honey. So drop her if she asks for financial assistance.
- Get to know her. Her likes and dislikes, what life is like in her country, does she have any family, hobbies, music, movies? No different than if you were chatting with a western girl. We call it a typical getting-to-know-you conversation.
Dating Etiquette In Kazakhstan
When you are in an Asian country, your Caucasian looks will stand out. Girls will take notice. In Kazakhstan, with Germans and Russians and probably a whole lot of other races mixed in, you will hardly be noticeable.
Women will probably not be chasing you. Also, being Muslim, albeit not strict, it will be against their usual traditions for a young lady to be seen chasing after a man, or hunting him in coffee shops. Setting up a couple of dates is definitely the way to go in this country.
How To Behave With Ladies From Kazakhstan
These ladies are very westernized, so the proper dating behaviour applies. Be courteous, thoughtful, romantic, conversational and at all times a gentleman. Whether you have enough charm to invite the lady back to your hotel successfully remains to be seen. It’ a poor country so don’t flash your money around, but buying flowers or a small gift will rack up the brownie points.
What to say to a woman from Kazakhstan?
Dating in Kazakhstan is a bit different from the dating game in the West. It may come as a surprise to some, but Tinder and the Russian version of OkCupid are very popular in the country. The biggest difference is that the girls are a lot more receptive.
It won’t be completely foreign, however, since the girls care about confidence and how you groom yourself as the girls back at home. Most important of all, of course, you have to make some effort to be interesting. You come from a foreign land with tales of places she’s never been. You should be fine.
Before we get there, we should probably tackle the elephant in the room. How are you going to communicate with her?
Communication with Kazakh women
The country has two official languages – Kazakh and Russian. To a large extent, the younger crowd is fluent in both, with perhaps a touch of English. With this regard, there’s only one thing that can be said – she will be a lot more impressed if you can speak some Kazakh than none at all. You need language to flirt, after all, and ladies love that you’re putting in some effort to be close to her.
Russian is notoriously difficult to learn, but relative to Kazakh, you’re better off learning to ride a horse without a saddle and no clothes on (hurts pretty badly, as you might imagine). So, Russian will be easier to catch on. It will serve you well in your time there.
If you’re like most people in the world and are too lazy to learn either one of the two languages, you could learn the bare minimum. Learn how to ask, “Hey there, do you speak English?” and if she says, “no,” learn how to say, “I don’t really know where to go with this.”
Some dating apps also offer translation services, but they are not super reliable.
Dating a Kazakh woman
Once you have her number, the rest should be the easy part. Kazakh girls are two things above all else – confident and straightforward. If she doesn’t like something about you, don’t expect her to keep quiet about it. The catch here is that if she does not respond to your texts, don’t be bummed. Let that go and cast your net elsewhere. There’s a lot of fishing to be done and a lot of carp to catch, after all.
The same way, you will need to be very confident and straightforward when dealing with her. If you’re not very familiar with the country, you already have somewhere to start off from. You could tell her to suggest a place, or if you’re already familiar with the landscape of the city, why not set something up right away?
What Are Kazakh Women Like?
As we already mentioned you can expect to find a really surprising mix of dark-haired and blonde women in Kazakhstan, but it doesn’t end there.

You see Kazakh women have bodies to match their faces because they are quite literally obsessed with keeping their bods toned and fit.
There are a number of factors which influence this drive to have the perfect bod, and part of it is due to the strong Western influences which have seeped into the country over the years.
Apart from that Eastern European women tend to take more pride in their physical appearance; it’s really that simple.
Another reason why women here take a lot of pride in their appearance is because competition for fit healthy men is fierce due to the simple fact that there are a lot more single women in Kazakhstan than there are single men.
Alcohol abuse is a serious problem for many Kazakhs, making the dating pool is even shallower for these gorgeous women – they literally can’t find a boyfriend no matter how hard they try.
Please remember that if you are dating a Kazakh woman she’s going to assume that your relationship is exclusive, so don’t be surprised if she gets very upset if she sees you with another woman – you won’t be able to explain your way out of that situation, so don’t get into it in the first place.
Kazakh Women Appearance
Kazakh women are like a fantastic mix of Asian women and Western women. A little lesson in history will let you know they are related to the Persians and Mongols, the two greatest contributors to their features.
The country is mostly composed of slim-figured women, but in a country of just over 17 million, it’s difficult to lump every single person into the same category. Categorically speaking however, their beauty standards revolve around being slim, or, at least, what most people from the US or UK would consider sexy. It gives you a really interesting change of perspective if you’ve never dated a foreign woman before.
The country was heavily influenced by Russia over the past decades, so share a lot, culturally with their neighbors. For instance, a great regard towards fitness is very widespread across the whole country. They also share a lot of different foods, fashion sense and Russian is one of the official languages in the country.
One difference between the Kazakhs and Russians is that the blonde gene isn’t as widespread, unless their bloodline mixed with that of foreigners. They are, however, just as exotic and lovely. Their features are, on average, quite conservative. The noses aren’t too pointed and the eyes aren’t small and squinty. Their hair can be straight, but never too curly. If you’ve never met an Uyghur girl, you’ll be delighted to know that they are some of the most lovely women in all of Asia.
Their most unique aspect would be the skin tone. They are slightly darker than Europeans, but lie just along that area where they seem to glimmer in the sun.
Cultural Traits of Kazakh Women
The first thing that really stands out about this country is just how culturally diverse it is. Kazakhstan was part of the Soviet Union, so they obviously had themselves mixed up with the Russians. Aside from which, other languages spoken in the country include German, Turkish, Tartar and Kazakh. All of these cultures and more have their foothold in some aspects of the country.
Being a majority Muslim country, a huge percentage of the population is traditional in their outlook towards the woman’s role in the family and in a marriage. The man is still considered the breadwinner of the family and should take care of the matrimonial home.
But don’t be quick to dismiss these bad-ass women. They have some of the highest literacy levels of country in Asia, a stark contrast to many Muslim countries that don’t allow women to go to school.
Marrying A Kazakh Woman
The odds are in your favor when it comes to dating Kazakh women because healthy, financially stable men are in very short supply here. The fact that you can afford to travel to Kazakhstan to meet a woman means that you’re instantly far more appealing to the average Kazakh woman.
That’s not to say that they’re gold diggers, because they’re not.
The simple reality for Kazakh women is that it’s very, very difficult for them to meet a genuine man in their own country, so they welcome Western men with open minds and open hearts.
Women here also aren’t bothered by age differences, so even if there’s a big age gap between you and your girlfriend here you’ll find that most Kazakh women won’t care.
What Is It Like To Be Married To A Kazakh Mail Order Bride?
About 30% of the country is composed of Christians while the rest is a mostly Muslim population. What sets them aside from their neighbors is that they practice a more secular version of Islam as compared to them. They do, however, share a lot of similarities, and, of course, a lot of differences.
From a young age, women are taught the importance of being in a family and why it’s essential that they stay together. They are also taught to prepare Kazakh delicacies like Beshbarmak and Kazy. They are taught how to take care of children and how to take care of themselves.
They are also taught how to keep a man happy without compromising on their own well being. Naturally, such women grow up to be excellent wives and mothers.
Once they’ve reached adolescence and completed their university education, most women then feel the need to get married. Education is an revered part of the modern culture and is hardly ever substituted for anything else. Here lies one of the fundamental differences between secular and Sharia Islam.
A similarity they do share, however, is the importance they place on the family as a unit. It’s her role to be the mediator in the family and always ensure there is peace in the household. If any argument comes up, it’s her role to keep calm and restore order.
Modern times have caused some changes to the accepted values in the country – they have a low explicitly prohibiting violence against women, for example – but the importance of keeping the household in harmony has never disappeared.
Also be prepared to interact with the male members of the household a lot. Unmarried girls are closely watched and guarded by the male members of the household. Because despite all their progressiveness as compared to other countries, both consensual and non-consensual bride-kidnapping happens in the country. It’s difficult to put a number on just how common the practice is, but the last thing anyone wants is their daughter wittingly kidnapped by a sly foreign man in the middle of the night.
In seeking to be married, most Kazakh women and their families prefer a man who is strong both in spirit and in health. They are very dependent on the man emotionally and feel that they must be able to rely on him no matter what happens.
What about religious differences?
Being so diverse, there’s a little bit of everything for everyone in the country. Over 70% of the country consider themselves Muslims, which makes the country a particularly attractive destination for Muslim men all over the world.
The Christian population mostly consists of Russians, Ukrainians and Germans and are usually not persecuted by the country. The only real problem, which could be a deal-breaker for some, is that people publicly known to have converted from Islam to Christianity are oppressed.
Kazakhstan – The Country
The country of Kazakhstan is set in the middle of a lot of other ‘stans’. Surrounding it are Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan is almost touching and then there is Pakistan, Afghanistan and Turkmenistan. The two big countries of Russia and China make up Kazakhstan’s border. It benefits nicely with a coastline on the Caspian Sea. The capital is Astana but the largest city is actually Almaty.
A population of 17 million people might seem like a lot, but when you consider that Kazakhstan is the 9th largest country in the world you’ll quickly realize that the country is very sparsely populated, making dating almost impossible for an awful lot of women who live outside major cities.
By Western terms Kazakhstan is not an economically strong country, but the large oil reserves being developed here means that you’ll see a growing number of BMWs and Mercs on the streets of the capital Almaty, for example.
Taking a trip to meet your bride
Actually traveling to meet the Kazakh beauty of your dreams is no mean feat, and for American men will require 2 or 3 flights, and approximately 20-hours of travel time.
Flying from Australia to Almaty will take 26 hours and cost $1700AUD ($1100USD). Flying from a US City, like Denver, the cost is $1000USD and takes about 20 hours. It seems that no matter where you are flying from, it’s going to be a long time in the air.
The air transport infrastructure in the country is rapidly improving however, and both Almaty and Astana have large international airports which are served by several major airlines, with connecting flights from Kiev, Moscow, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Hanover and Istanbul.
Very few men have ever even considered Kazakhstan as somewhere they might go searching for love, so you’d best get started and beat them to it before this secret leaks out!
You can get a 3 to 4-star hotel in Almaty for about $50USD a night. That’s reasonable. It’s probably advisable to get a sim card for Kazakhstan and have exchanged some numbers with some ladies there. Taxis are really cheap, so getting around shouldn’t prove to be expensive.
Things to Do and See With Your Kazakh Girlfriend
There’s lots of rugged country in Kazakhstan, so if you’re into hiking and picnics, these pastimes might offer a nice scenic change from the city life. Almaty is not the capital, and it has more than 1.5 million people so there will be clubs and bars and plenty of restaurants to which you can take your date.
You have a couple of churches, a zoo and a National Park that you can visit and you can show her your interest in her country’s history and heritage by offering to visit the famous Almaty Museum.
Dating a Kazakh girl is a real adventure and you will be in a country that doesn’t get a lot of press and about which people know very little. If you have an unsuccessful visit, you can always boast about having been in a country your friends may never have even heard of.
If you mention Kazakhstan to most people they will only associate it with the character Borat, and his portrayal of it as a backwards and poor country.
What the majority of men don’t realize is that this hidden Eastern European gem is set at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, which means that Kazakh women are a potent mixture of raw Slavic beauty with a touch of the Orient mixed in for good measure.
There are even some German influences too so you can expect a real mix of dark-haired and sultry Eastern European ladies, but just as many Slavic/Asian blondes too.
You’re basically getting to date women who have a unique genetic mix, which leads to their stunning physical appearance.
Language & Love
Almost 70% of the population is native Kazakh, but you’ll still find Russian spoken in many places too – especially when it comes to business and foreign trade.
If you’re worrying about having to learn Kazakh or Russian then don’t – English has become a lot more popular in Kazakhstan since the fall of the ‘Iron Curtain’, although you shouldn’t expect Kazakh women to be fluent English speakers either.
Then again language barriers tend to disappear when two people are in love, right?
Religion in Kazakhstan
Most of the women in Kazakhstan are Muslim, although they’re not devout followers of Islam. The country is also pretty secular in nature because Muslims and Christians live here in peace.
What it comes down to is that your own particular faith won’t really matter to Kazakh women because they’re far more moderate than women you would find in other predominantly Muslim countries.
