Bulgaria Trip Report

Post by RobinHood » January 4th, 2013, 2:33 pm

Hi Guys,

Recently back from Bulgaria so I thought I would share with you how my trip went. About me, I am divorced, 42 year old, short at 5ft 6inch guy from England, my girlfriend is 28, Bulgarian and has never been married. We met via an Internet dating site and have been seeing each other for 6 months.

About Bulgaria, it's country of around 6 million people in South Eastern Europe. It has cold but relatively short winters, with April to October, being pleasant to warm/hot. The main cities are Sofia (capital), Polvdiv, Varna and Bourgas. Over the last 10 years it has become relatively popular with English people for both Skiing and the summer Black Sea resorts.

In terms of cost of living, you will pleased to know that even the English £ and Yankee $ still have some value here. Eating out in a decent local restaurant and you will pay about $2 for a local bottle of good quality beer. Meal for 2 with a bottle of wine, about $30.

If you were looking to earn a living here, it would be difficult as wages are very low and the language is not easy to learn. Personally, I think it's a great place for holidays, but not a place for living.

Now to the women, there is no doubt in my mind that the standard of the women in terms of looks is better than the standard in the UK. I am not saying they are all great looking, because they are not, but they are much thinner and tend to dress more feminine. On a number of occasions I saw overweight men with thin attractive women, personally I never see this combination in England, it's always the other way around.

What I find refreshing in Bulgarian women is that they will talk to you, probably because you are a foreigner and they want to practise their English, but for whatever the reason it's better than at home. This is not to say that doing street game would be easy, because I don't think it would, but if you were here for a while and was not seen as a player you should do okay.

I found that just knowing a little Bulgarian language (it's difficult!) went down well with the ladies

As a western male, I still think you have some value here and there are certainly women that are looking for foreign boyfriends. If you are looking for a long term girlfriend I think your chances of finding an attractive female are reasonable. (Certainly much better than in the west) My advice though would be to go for those that have not yet travelled abroad, as their attitude will be better and they will appreciate things more.

I had a great time with my girlfriend and we are making plans for her to move to England in the spring. I also met a decent guy from the states, who is seeing my girlfriends best friend.

If anyone wants any more info on Bulgaria, just ask.

Happy New Year All.
Robin Hood.
