The Scoop: Diolli is an elite matchmaking agency where international romances can blossom into marriages. The matchmakers work with Slavic gentlemen who live in the USA, Western Europe, Israel, UK, Germany, or Australia and who want to date Slavic women. The matchmakers also work with male clients who are interested in Ukrainian culture and introduce men to Ukrainian women who are ready to settle down and willing to relocate for the right person. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Diolli team has had to be more careful about how it conducts business and arranges international trips and dates for serious marriage-minded singles.

Since 2008, Diolli has gained recognition as a friendly and successful marriage agency based in Ukraine. The team has won international dating awards and worked alongside leading matchmakers and dating coaches.

Diolli is a boutique matchmaking agency, not a mail-order bride site, so it focuses on arranging in-person introductions that can spark real relationships.

By providing coaching, Diolli facilitates matches between Western men and Eastern European women. The agency supports single men as they travel in search of an international love affair. Dioli’s skilled matchmakers use their human intuition and networking abilities to create love connections that would not have been possible otherwise.

Diolli is an esteemed marriage agency that has been certified by the Matchmaking Institute.

The Diolli team works hard to change how people perceive international dating agencies and show the good they can do for marriage-minded singles.

In 2016, Diolli matchmaker Svetlana Mukha was named the Best Matchmaker at the annual iDate Conference in Miami.

Although 2020 has been a challenging year for Diolli, the matchmakers continue to endorse international dating and bring hope to single people who have been frustrated or disappointed by their local dating options.

“We are an offline boutique matchmaking service and we are specialized in traditional old-school offline real dates,” the Diolli team said. “Our clients actually choose us because they are sick and tired of online dating that gives them no actual results.”

Overcoming Challenges & Putting Clients First

Diolli offers personalized matchmaking services based in Ukraine, and its clients come from all over the world to find love. The matchmakers can help singles bridge cultural divides, cross international borders, and navigate the bureaucratic details necessary to date, court, and marry a foreign person.

Singles who work with Diolli can expand their horizons and embark on a dating adventure in Ukraine.

Diolli matchmakers offer hands-on support throughout the international dating process.

“We specialize in international dating,” the Diolli team said. “Our clients are well-traveled, open-minded, and cosmopolitan — and, of course, they are very romantic.”

Diolli does not support an online dating site or virtual communication tools. Its primary matchmaking method involves making travel arrangements for international clients and setting up in-person dates in Ukraine.

“A hugely important part of this adventure is the actual trip — getting on the plane and crossing the ocean to be on the date with a special person,” the team said.

Of course, in 2020, international travel hasn’t been so easy, and Diolli has had to adjust its services to weather the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. The team said it seriously considered offering virtual dates through Zoom or Skype but felt those experiences would not be satisfying to serious international daters. It would be like a five-star restaurant showing diners pictures of food.

From March until July 2020, Diolli paused its international matchmaking services and didn’t schedule any offline dates. Finally, Ukraine lifted some of its travel restrictions and opened its borders — and Diolli got back to business.

“Autumn 2020 was actually really busy for us because our clients were really looking forward to the chance to travel safely again,” the Diolli team said.

Hundreds of Smart Matches Lead to Loving Marriages

Over the years, Diolli has received many glowing testimonials from couples who met through the service and got married. Not even a pandemic could stop some Diolli clients from falling in love and starting a new chapter in their lives.

One Diolli couple met in 2019 and got engaged shortly before the international lockdowns in March 2020. The gentleman lived in Sydney, Australia, and his fiancée couldn’t travel from her home country of Ukraine to be with him. So, the engaged couple had to get creative to keep their love story going.

Sometimes traveling outside your comfort zone is the quickest way to find love.

Skype has been a wingman for the long-distance couple. The couple has been able to connect through video dates despite differences in geography and time zones. On one occasion, the woman put on the dress she wore on their first date, decorated her room with balloons, and sang happy birthday to her beloved.

“I truly believe that the services that Diolli provided have helped me find someone that I will spend the rest of my life with,” said an American client named Nick. “I would recommend their services to anyone who is looking for love and happiness.”

A 70-year-old man from Portugal had a life-changing experience when he met a Ukrainian woman in January 2020, went on several dates, and invited her to spend a week with him in the spring. The couple were wining and dining in Portugal when the world changed and international flights were canceled.

Instead of a week-long romantic vacation, the couple ended up hunkering down together for eight weeks. By the end of it, they had gotten to know each other much better and fallen in love. They got married that summer and have been inseparable ever since.

The Diolli team is constantly providing resources to help single people find their way to the romance of their dreams.

During its break in scheduling international dates in 2020, the Diolli team produced a lot of educational content for its blog, social media pages, and YouTube channel. The matchmakers shared their insights on how to find success in a fast-changing dating world and encouraged singles to keep growing even while under lockdown.

Diolli matchmaker Svetlana Mukha has started working on her second book for women written in Russian and Ukrainian and her first book about international dating for men in English. The books are scheduled to be published in 2021.

Diolli Faced Obstacles, But the Love Coaching Continues

Diolli has been creating international matches since 2008, but recent travel restrictions and social distancing measures have created unprecedented challenges for the team. Working in the clients’ best interests, has put safety first. For example, while its matchmaking operation slows down for singles from Australia, Diolli coaching services have ramped up. The team coaches clients on essential dating and relationships skills, so they are prepared to make the most of their romantic prospects.

Looking on the bright side, the Diolli team said the global pandemic has given single people everywhere the chance to consider the big picture and reflect on what is really important to them and their future happiness.

“We hope that 2020 has taught all singles that when you are stuck at home for weeks, it doesn’t really matter if the guy is 6’2″ or if the girl has blue eyes,” the Diolli team said. “What is vitally important is to share similar values, truly cherish and respect each other, and be willing to mutually make each other happy and comfortable.”
