Romanian girls are often viewed as mysterious, sexy, and beautiful for a very good reason - often it's true. Romanian brides are an exotic mix of east and west - the ancient and the modern and the reason is historical. Since ancient times Romania has been at the edge of one empire or another, close enough for some influence to rub off, but not so close that its culture is totally overwhelmed.
In ancient times the Greeks traded in the area, but it was the arrival of the Romans in 101 BC that really left a mark. The reason that this matters to a guy pursuing Romanian brides 2000 years later is that, because of the Roman influence, Romanians use the Latin alphabet and speak a language more like French or Spanish rather than Russian.
That means that if you still remember your high school French you can probably learn to communicate with a hot Romanian girl a lot faster than a Ukrainian or Russian bride.
Following the collapse of the Roman Empire Romania spent the next 1800 years as either an invasion route or a buffer zone and this period is really when the culture that modern Romanian girls grew up in began to develop.
The Goths moved into the void left by the Romans and they were quickly followed by a the Huns and a series of other groups with occasional interference by the Byzantine Empire.
Finally, after the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks in 1453 Romania settled into a four hundred year period as the northern buffer and battlefield between the Ottoman Empire and various Christian powers. But Romanian women did not simply accept their fate.
The Romanian prince Vlad the Impaler led the savage local resistance to the Turks, but he is remembered as more of a legend than a man - the historical basis for the fictional character Count Dracula from Bram Stokers novel Dracula. However, if you are looking for a goth vampire chick girlfriend Romania is probably not as good of a choice as West Hollywood.
Of course, the Romanian girls know all about the legend of Vlad, but the last thing they want is some nutty Western guy in black jeans babbling about it. Sexy Romanian girls know the risks of even talking about such things. Even educated, cosmopolitan Romanian women may seem superstitious, but most Romanian brides see it differently. They would say not talking about vampires and such things is simply sensible, because they are all myths.
But the truth is that most Romanian women know that it is better not to tempt the fates. They grew up in a country that has never had more than maybe fifty years of real peace in 2000 years and the survivors were often the people who kept their heads down and focused on the practical issues. So, most sexy Romanian girls are a little superstitious, because it might just do some good, but they aren't interested in being someone's vampire babe, because that's not really practical.
With the Russian's help Romania finally gained independence from the Turks in 1878, but it remained in a poor strategic position and suffered horribly in both world wars. However, perhaps the darkest period of Romanian history occurred during the communist period from 1947 to 1989 when it was oppressed by one of the most efficient secret police forces in the world.
One of the few good things to happen during the communist period was that Romania developed one of the strongest women's sports programs in the world. Romanian gymnasts are the most famous, but Romanian women athletes also won many titles in track, swimming, diving, and other sports. So, there are lots of sexy Romanian gymnasts and other beautiful athletic Romanian women. There are tons of athletic hotties, because of the tradition of success that began during the communist period.
One other issue to remember about Romanian dating is that there is perhaps as big a divide between the country and the city in Romania as in any Eastern European nation. Cosmopolitan Romanian women from Bucharest or the Crimean coast are often well educated and intellectual. You will meet many sexy women doctors and beautiful engineers, because the urban areas of Romania have an outstanding school system similar to what exists in Russia and the Ukraine. A Romanian girl from the city is usually familiar with Western ideas, entertainment, and news. The cultural gap is not usually huge.
In fact, Bucharest, the capital and largest city, has a vibrant nightlife. There are lots of good night clubs, restaurants, and hotels. It is also easy to travel to Bucharest. There are good air and rail connections, although it would be a long train ride from anywhere in Western Europe.
However, Romania is a large country, about the size of Oregon, and much of the northern and western part of the country is almost as wild and undeveloped as it was during old Vlad Dracula's day. A Romanian girl from these areas is much more likely to be less educated, more superstitious, and in general less knowledgeable about the broader world than hot Romanian girls that grew up in the city.
Of course, with the internet and television this is not as big an issue and there are always exception, but it is something to keep in mind. So, there are some advantages to dating a Romania girl. The country is part of the European Union, so that might make it much easier for you to bring your Romanian mail order bride home. The language problem is not as severe as it is in the Ukraine or Russia and it is a beautiful country with lots of beautiful Romanian brides.
