One usual sunny day I made myself a cup of aromatic ginger tea. I had a day off and nothing could prevent me from just being happy. With every sip of ginger tea I felt more and more energetic and what is more, even excited. That feeling of happiness, excitement and satisfaction caused immediate reaction in my brain and in a while I was already sitting at the monitor and searching World Wide Web for something I was interested in already for 2 years. Maybe this wasn’t a usual day as I said before? I started to gather information about marriages of my counterparts with Romanian women.
I got stuck for a while, thinking what I really know about Romania. Well… not much and I guess not only American educational system is not perfect, but as well as I was dreaming about weekend in the mountains during my course of geography at school. Let us back to Romania. As I didn’t know anything about the country I started my search to fill the gaps in my memory. I would say there were a lot of such gaps or better to say one great huge gap regarding my knowledge about Romania.
What have I found? To my surprise, Romania was a member of European Union and this fact helped me to focus on things liketrips to Romania and safety in Eastern European countries. Since country was in the EU I had nothing to worry about traveling there, as I thought at first, but to say the truth, in every country there are places you had better to omit visiting. There are stereotypes about Eastern European countries, but in reality it means nothing more than just imagination and stereotypes. People are different everywhere. There are good or bad people, hospitable or non-hospitable people. It does not depend much on the country, but rather more on the region of particular country and on our subjective opinion. So, after I have got some general info about Romania and that flights to this country from the USA are rather cheap for average American, I decided to go visit Romania some day, but I had to find some harder stimulus to go there and I have found it. Romanian women – that was the stimulus that attracted me much.
When I started to search on the internet about Romanian women, I was surprised and delighted by their beauty. Romanian women are different and almost all of them are very pretty. That was what I found on the Internet and those pictures were speaking of themselves. Probably, that was the first admiration that settled down in my brain on the way to my marriage with Romanian woman.
But there was still long way to marriage point and some most interesting parts of it I am going to write about. Just so you have some tips, general information or things to do if you decided to find your love in Romania. After looking at Romanian women on the pictures I was full of their beauty in my mind and by some effort I clicked on the first image I liked and that link provided me further to some web page with article about Romanian culture and national traditions. Of course, that was interesting, but not exactly what I was looking for.
I was more interested in the information about relationship with Romanian women, how good they are as girlfriends, do they like foreigners in general and Americans in particular, how multicultural they are and what are main differences between Romanian and American women.
I was also curious about examples of American guys and Romanian women relationships; about multicultural Romanian-American families and so on. All those questions were so interesting and there were so many questions that it has become a kind of pleasant obsession for me. I have started to look up for more information about Romanian women when I had free time at home and even when I had some time during work. That was a time when I was dreaming about Romanian woman already and imagined how my perfect Romanian girlfriend could look.
We know many examples when dreams come true as they become material if we keep moving from just a dreaming to action. That was exactly what I have done – I started to act. First of all, I tried to find some Romanian women in the USA, but it was not very good idea, as I can judge now. There were many women from Romania on Facebook, they were communicating with me not in descent English, but I never managed to ask at least one of them to real date, because they were either saying they are busy or they were too far away. I could not find places in the USA like festivals of Romanian culture ar stuff like that or at least I didn’t know where to find them. This could also be my mistake, but I decided to act in a different way. How do you think, what have I done? What should the man do to find the biggest concentration of Romanian women in the world? Right! The man has to go to Romania! That was exactly what I have done, I visited this nice country. I have bought a plane ticket to Bucharest via Munich.
What I could say about Romania in a few words? This country surprised me a lot in a pleasant way. I have opened a new world for myself. I have seen Romania not a gloomy state as it is often shown in vampire movies. It is very nice, modern and open to people European country with rich culture and hospitable people.
What else surprised me about Romania were prices. It seemed so cheap to me with my average American salary. I would say average salary in Romania is about $700, and this is considered a good salary, because there are people who get much less. Poverty of some people is one more fact why Romanian women and men migrate abroad for work. Poverty is one more fact why Westerner has good chances to find a wife in Romania, as they like to use such a man to move abroad and many men from West can’t stand still when they see the beauty of some Romanian women.
In my case it was not like that and I will tell you why. First of all, I am kind of picky, when it is going about women. I am from good educated family, I got Master’s degree in my home country, I earn a lot and I am popular among women in my home town. But I decided to look for a girlfriend in Romania because I was mesmerized with beauty of Romanian women when I have seen them for the first time.
When I came to Romania, I didn’t try to start conversation with the first pretty woman I have seen. That was not my plan at all. In contradiction with popular opinion about Americans, I was not waving with my wallet yelling I am American, let’s go with me.
First of all I rented apartment in Bucharest. I started to observe the city every day, by going to the stores, buying some products at the supermarkets, evaluating people I see around. When I had inspiration, I was learning Romanian language. Mostly some general words and phrases.
After 3 weeks in Romania I got my adaptation and decided it is time to widen horizons. I have found in Google some places where I could go to spend my time, but the key factor was English as the main communication language. I’ve found nice Art School. I went to the Art School to communicate with women as well, as it was my part of the plan. I have met some nice local women there and even managed to ask one for a date, but she seemed weird to me and the beginning of our possible relationship ended with nothing.
In a month I was not thinking about coming back home, but I have decided to draw some plan of staying in Romania. I decided to travel Romania, but this thought was not going to become a reality due to the fact I have found a job. I became a teacher of English, native speaker in Romanian private language school. That was a place where I have found her – my bright diamond, my future Romanian wife, my first and last Romanian love.
Our relationship started when we glanced at each other during classes for a few times and I noticed she is interested in me. I was waiting for some time to call her greater interest, but she was more initiative and asked whether I could provide personal lessons of English language for her. I agreed and asked if she would like to have some coffee with me after work. She agreed. It was nice, pure and romantic first Romanian date. I walked her home and was happy like no one in the world.
After my 3-month-course was ended and I have had new students already, I still had private lessons for my Andrea. In a year our relationship logically moved to a proposal phase. We have visited America for a few times, traveled Europe and had our wedding ceremony in Las Vegas and in Bucharest in traditional Romanian style. We like to change place of living every 3-4 month and live in the USA, then go to Romania. We still travel the world a lot. We plan to make our family bigger and then I guess we are going to settle down in the U.S. I am happy to have such pretty, intelligent, and kind woman as Andrea for a wife.
