I like all kinds of girls: tall ones, short ones, girls from Ukraine, China and the Netherlands, Norway and Belarus… Everyone has a chance, but I feel that the Slavic roots are much closer to me. I like girls in dresses and without bright makeup. I like natural beauty and femininity. I like different kinds of girls. The most important thing is sincerity! I believe that any relationship should not begin when people fall in love, but when they become friends. That way it’s much easier to continue and keep in touch. Ukrainian girls are smart and they have a good education. It’s easy to communicate and make friends with them. After meeting one of them, I would like to invite her to the cinema, to chat with her… As a result of friendship, you may get a wife. My first love was a violinist, and the last one was a doctor.
If a girl is working, she often does not cook and devotes little time to the household. But I don’t think that I would be interested in a loafer. Ukrainian girls manage everything and everywhere. And it’s great! They are successful in their careers, but at the same time, they can treat their men with something tasty, and, you know, it’s also a good way to a man’s heart!

Last week in the concert hall “Dzintari” one of the most popular winners of the Eurovision Song Contest – Alexander Rybak (26) came to the stage together with his father Igor Rybak.
When you won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2009, how did your life change?
Radically. The only thing that has not changed are my ambitions. I’ve always been quite self-confident. I was aware of my talent and ability, just it was not easy to convince very important people about that. Three years ago, to be able to perform, I wrote about twenty emails a day. Do you think that these important people responded to me? They were not interested in my music. I recorded my Eurovision song, and brought it to the radio by myself. Nobody accepted it. Radio stations said this is not a music at all, the violin sounds strange, and I scream something on the top. When I won the Eurovision song contest, for some reason everything started to sound good. Winning this competition has changed the limits of my abilities. It is important that it’s not some wise uncles and aunts who judge on your talent and work but an audience. Now I don’t need to tell anybody who I am. No need to beg and to prove, because offers are pouring like from a cornucopia. If I speak to someone by myself, everything happens very quickly!

Before I participated in “Eurovision”, when I had more time and less concerts, I decided to arrange an unusual Valentine’s Day for my beloved girl. And it was unusual because I made a quest day out of it. In different parts of the city, in cafes, under the trees, at friends I hid various riddles and she had to solve those riddles to get the next place. It was very interesting for both of us! In the final of the quest a gift waited for my beloved girl – a candlelit dinner in a beautiful winter garden and me with a bouquet of roses. She even cried with happiness then. It was a pleasure for me to surprise and please her. On the Love Day my wish will be very simple and the most important at the same time – love! Love does wonders!

Sasha Rybak chose a violinist again for a girlfriend.
The singer has dedicated two songs to his new chosen one, a 25 year-old Norwegian with the Russian name Maria. For some years the heart of the victor of “Eurovision 2009” was free. We remind you as he says today that the last time he fell in love as an adult was when he fell in love with a violinist girl back in his youth. By the way, just after separation from this girl, the singer wrote his legendary “fairy tale”,with that he won the ESC.
During his Christmas visit to Minsk Sasha confessed to “Komsomolskaya Pravda” that love again lives in his heart.
– I celebrated the New Year in Egypt with my beloved girl, – the singer told us. (More about it read here)
But Rybak did not want to acquaint us with his new love. He even did not mention her name.
– Well, you don’t need to know everything in detail.
