If you ever visit Romania, you’re in for a treat with its majestic landscapes and Medieval-style cities. You’re also in for a treat with the curvy, gorgeous, and charismatic ladies who help populate this beautiful country.
But who am I to claim such things?
I’ve visited Bucharest a couple of times and paid a visit to a few towns along the Transylvanian mountains during the one week I spent there to go hiking. That’s also not to mention the several girls from Romania I’ve encountered during my worldly travels. Needless to say, I know a few things about what Romanian girls are like, and I want to help you.
In this guide, I’ll explain everything you need to know about dating a Romanian woman.
What Are Romanian Women Like?
People often say that girls from Eastern Europe can easily capture a man’s attention. I can tell you from experience that the women from Romania are no exception and their beauty makes it worth visiting the country.
Romanian girls are drop-dead sexy, and it’s very difficult for men to resist them. You’ll notice this walking around Bucharest or any other city in Romania. If anything, you’ll probably extend your trip!
You’re probably wondering, what makes Romanian women so beautiful?
What Do Romanian Women Look Like?
Romanian ladies tend to have numerous physical attributes and characteristics that most men find highly desirable in a woman.
Visualize attractive women who are tall, subtly athletic, curvy, and with long, straight hair. Some of these women are more olive-skinned with dark hair, while others are fairer-skinned with lighter-colored hair, but almost all are drop-dead gorgeous.
These are the kinds of girls you will see daily as you explore Romania.
Women from Eastern Europe (such as Bulgaria, Estonia, Poland, Serbia, and Ukraine) are known worldwide for their good looks and highly desirable features. Romanians are a class of their own, and genetics are a big reason.
These genes stem from Romanians’ ethnic backgrounds. It’s a little-known fact that Romania is one of the most diverse countries in Europe. Throughout its history, the lands that became modern-day Romania were inhabited by the Slavs, the Scandinavians, the Romans, Western Europeans, and many others.
Yet another reason Romanian girls are so beautiful is that they tend to put a lot of effort into improving their looks. It’s a part of Romanian culture for girls to take care of themselves, which is why you’ll see women looking picture-perfect all the time.
The Personality of Girls From Romania
Everyone has a unique personality, but there are a few traits that most Romanian girls share in common:
They Are Family-Oriented
Romanian girls are hardworking and very family-oriented, thanks to their culture. The girl you date will have strong maternal instincts, and if you decide to build a life together, she’ll put her heart and soul into raising and taking care of your future family.
They May Be Shy at First
When you first approach her or try to make a move, she’s likely to initially act a bit quiet and reserved. But the more you get to know her (and her you), the more the fun and outgoing part of her personality will reveal itself.
Let me put it this way: Romanian girls need to become comfortable with their potential romantic partners, but they open up more and tell you what they think once they do.
Affectionate and Caring
And as her trust in you deepens further, she’ll become more warm and affectionate with you. That is why Romanian girls make excellent wives or life partners: they’ll be respectful, loyal, industrious, and loving all at the same time.
Where Can You Meet Romanian Women
You can meet girls at parks, shopping malls, stores, bars and nightclubs, and on the street. Anywhere you can find people, you’ll find lovely-looking girls to approach.
Romanian girls are also quite easy to approach, so you just take it anytime you have an opportunity. You can get a conversation going by asking for directions or the time. Or, you can get straight to the point and tell her you thought she was pretty and wanted to talk.
Again, don’t be surprised if she’s initially hesitant, but that’s okay. Just be yourself without being too aggressive; hopefully, she will give you her number. If she doesn’t, approach more girls!
Here are my recommendations on the best towns to meet girls after you’ve arrived in Romania:
Meet Romanian Women in Bucharest
Bucharest is Romania’s capital and its most prosperous city. Hence, there are more places to check out during the day or night, translating into more opportunities to interact with Romanian beauties.
Usually, tourists find it tough to crack the day game in eastern European cities, given the language barrier. Bucharest is a pleasant exception, and you will find a general awareness of English among the ladies.
We recommend keeping the day game casual and sticking to a place like Ion C. Bratianu Boulevard – the city’s primary thoroughfare that attracts a lot of daytime traffic. You’ll find ladies taking a stroll or having a coffee alone. Just walk up to them to say hello. You can ask for directions or offer to buy a coffee. There’s always an option to be straightforward and say you want to talk as you found her beautiful.
University Metro Station area is another attractive alternative, in addition to the following commercial centers:
The city comes alive at night, and it has a different vibe if you know where to look.
We recommend the Old Town area if you’re looking for one place that offers everything. It is a major night hotspot where singles are looking for a good time. This is the number one choice for locals and tourists alike. While this offers a large pool of girls to approach, there is always a chance you get attracted to a prostitute.
These are the places worth giving a shot if you are interested in dating Romanian women:
For all the options Bucharest nightlife offers, be careful about your surroundings and actions. Use your judgment if a bunch of drop-dead beauties suddenly find you interesting and want some private time!
Where to Meet Romanian Girls in Cluj Napoca
Suppose you plan to be in Romania for a few weeks and want to explore the dating scene outside of Bucharest, head over to Cluj Napoca. It offers a balance between the cosmopolitan buzz and countryside serenity.
Restrict your exploration to Old Town and City Center. It is a busy area with locals and tourists walking around throughout the day. These areas are known for sightseeing and are well-supplemented by cafes, restaurants, and street shopping options. If it’s sunny and you’re tired walking out, head out to the comfort offered by these malls and shopping centers:
- Platina Shopping Center
- Central Shopping Center
- Iulius Mall
The good part about a small city like Cluj Napoca is you do not need to go too far once the sun sets. The same Old Town and City Center areas offer plenty of opportunities during the night. Hence, setting up your base in Piata Unirii will be a worthy investment.
Given it is a university town, plan your trip when colleges are in session to maximize your chances of securing company. Untold Festival is not to be missed if you are in the city during late July or August.
Irrespective of the time of your travel, these nightclubs and bars will offer plenty of opportunities:
- Charlie Pub & Restaurant
- Euphoria Music Hall
- Caro Vintage Club
- Spatiu Music-Pub
- Hemingway Bar
- Hash Bar
Best Places to Meet Romanian Women in Timisoara
Timisoara is a historic city attracting large numbers of tourists. Although not as populous as Bucharest or Cluj Napoca, Timisoara has plenty of places to check out singles.
As with the cities covered above, Timisoara’s Old Town is the place to be during the day and night. The shops, cafes, restaurants, and tourist attractions (Victory Square, Orthodox Metropolitan Cathedral, Roses Park, etc.) are abuzz throughout the day.
If you’re around during summer, there’ll be Sun Beach Pool Parties to stoke your interest. If you’re looking to escape the daytime heat, head over to one of these commercial points:
- Shopping Center Timisoara
- Kapa Shopping Center
- Galeria 1
You don’t need to head out anywhere else for the night game. Old Town’s Unirii Square offers plenty of female attractions and opportunities. If you set up your base here, you’ll never need a cab ride as long as you’re in the city. All these happening nightlife hubs are within walking distance:
- Fratelli Lounge & Club
- Escape Venue
- Banker Club
- Club Taine
These tourist cities are also worth a try:
Just remember that it’s not uncommon for Romanian girls to be slightly reserved at first when men approach them. She could even come across as a bit cautious and hesitant. But that’s okay!
Approach her respectfully, get a conversation going and see if you can get her number to talk and meet later.
My advice is to be confident, assertive, and not pushy or overtly sexual, as it’s quite a big turnoff for women.
Romanian Dating Sites
It would be great to set up at least a date or two before you’ve even landed on Romanian soil. Online dating is one of the easiest ways for men to find girls to go out with in today’s world, including Romania.
If you want a more serious partner, check out AnastasiaDate or EuroDate. The women here are often searching for long-term relationships. Tinder is also an option, although the girls here usually look for a shorter-term fling and can also be flakier.
AnastasiaDate is equivalent to a goldmine of single Romanian women and Romanian brides. There are over 1.5 million profiles, with the most popular age group being 26-30 years old. Its matching algorithm has a 65% accuracy, with a high reply rate (98%). It definitely your best chance to meet Romanian women online.
Available in English as well, the site is free to register and pays women for registration and chatting. There are strong anti-scam policies in place to keep con artists away.
There are negative reviews about the website, and the mobile app is available only to Android users. You can’t do much (not even reply to chat!) with the free membership, and the service fee is high compared to other sites, which might put some users off.
EuroDate is another popular dating platform in Romania. Although the user base is just over 100,000, it is growing all the time and has a high percentage of active European women. The dominant age group is 36-40, indicating that most users seek mature conversations and stability.
It is free to register and allows Google-based login to speed up the process. There’s extended verification that adds another layer of security. You can choose from different membership options, and an Android app keeps you engaged on the go.
Lack of an iOS app, dominantly European member profile, minutes-based membership tariff, and pesky users shamelessly asking for gifts are some of the cons you can do without.
This is one of the oldest dating sites, dating (pun intended) back to 1993. It has evolved with time and offers free, fast registration through Facebook and Google. To add to standard features, there’s a mood indicator (flirty, romantic, chosen one, serious, etc.) to help you find matches that suit your feelings.
There are over 700,000 profiles, 62% of them being active. Mobile apps are available for those on the go.
Like any dating website, this one is not free of fake profiles and scams. An interface begging for upgradation, high membership cost, and most of the innovative features being paid are a few aspects spoiling the party!
How to Impress a Romanian Girl?
Here are my final tips if you are serious about dating a Romanian lady:
Learn a Little Romanian
Learning a few Romanian words and phrases should be easier than you think. Derived from Latin, Romanian is the only Romance language developed in Eastern Europe (for reference, other Romance languages include French, Italian, and Spanish).
If you know anything about those languages, you should notice many similarities.
The girl you date will likely be impressed that you know any Romanian because it sets you apart from other visiting Western men. You can also have a sexy date over food and wine, teaching other words in your native tongues.
Be Respectful and Polite
Due to cultural upbringing, Romanians are very polite people, and it’s expected for both genders to be respectful to one another. Be kind and courteous, which should help her become more relaxed around you.
Avoid Sensitive Subjects at First
Remember that she’s likely to be reserved initially, and it will take a little time for her to open up to you. On your first date, you can discuss subjects like your background and family back home, her family, and your interests.
Avoid more sensitive subjects (such as discussing past serious relationships or anything concerning you two becoming intimate) at first until you’ve become more comfortable with one another.
Are You Ready to Date Romanian Women?
Well, that just about sums up my tips for dating Romanian brides. As you will find out, women from Romania possess many fun qualities that make them excellent girlfriends.
My final advice is to walk up to a girl you like when you see her. Don’t even think about it or what you’re going to say; just do it. I hope you’ll find your Romanian girlfriend!
