Dating bulgerian women
The other thing I noticed that is that some Bulgarian girls like Russian guys.
When I approached women (more on that below), I told them I was a Russian guy from Moscow.
He looked like a regular Slav (maybe a bit darker) and wouldn’t be out of place in a place like Ukraine, Belarus or Russia.
As for Bulgarian women, I’ve never met one in my entire life, so I didn’t really know what to expect.
I assume that, as with the case of Serbian, it will take around 2-4 months to become conversational in Bulgarian if you already speak another Slavic language.
Since Bulgaria is in EU, English is spoken by the younger generation (30 and under)—especially if they lived or studied abroad.
But Maverick, you point out, Bulgarians aren’t very rich to travel like Americans or other Western Europeans. But I don’t even know any famous Bulgarians, whether in sports, academia, or anything else.
The only contact I’ve ever had with a Bulgarian was when I had a Bulgarian acquaintance back in San Francisco.
In fact, I don’t remember the last time I was in a country where most women had such dark, richly black hair.
In Spain and Italy, most women have the predictable combo of olive skin and either dark brown or black hair, a combination which I love; in Bulgaria, many women were light skinned but with jet black hair, a strange combination pointing to a mixing of genes.
Most Bulgarian women are what I call “truly Eastern European.” This doesn’t specifically refer to their origins, but more to their mentality (you can be Eastern European but behave and think in a more Western way.)For instance, regardless where they’re actually going, they always dress like they’re going to a funeral: black leather boots, black leather jackets, black shirts, and skirts.
When I was in Barcelona, I met a good share of Bulgarians who made the city home and had Spanish boyfriends.
During one date with a very cute girl, we were literally speaking 3 languages: English (mostly), Spanish (here and there), and Bulgarian/Russian mixture (when she didn’t know a word in either of the previous languages).
