In Eastern Europe, everybody talks about Russian girls or those from Ukraine, but do you know who totally slips under the radar? That’s right – Moldovan women.
And today we’re here to talk about dating Moldova girls and women and learn what they are like, what to expect from a relationship and basically everything you need to know about these hidden gems in Eastern Europe.
Unfortunately, Moldova itself tends to simply fall by the wayside simply because of where it is in the world.
With an entire country population of under 3 million people, many Western travelers haven’t even heard of this country, much less have an interest in going. And, as you will see today – that is a huge mistake!
There are lots of reasons to actually visit Moldova, and I am listing them below:
1. It’s super off the grid – most likely, you’ll be the only foreigner there at many points in the year.
This is a exciting opportunity to really immerse yourself in a culture and be in a country where you can live on $500 a month. Amazing!
2. It’s a look back in time to true Soviet architecture and culture (more on that in a second).
3. Moldova women are beautiful, sweet, and are undoubtedly going to at least be curious of foreigners.
(If you’re a girl thinking of traveling to Moldova, unfortunately I don’t have any good advice for you on what Moldova men think of you.)
4. Moldova is dirt cheap. By Western standards, anything from accommodation to eating out and everything in between is really cheap.
So, now you have a few extra reasons to go there – apart from the ladies themselves. But once you are there and even before, one big question arises:
Where to meet Moldovan Women?
My recommended meeting place for women in Moldova is this website. This is a premium website (as in you have to pay for a membership) that comes with tons of advantages for you.
First of all, being a paid service, it’s one of those places where competition will be minimal. Not that many men lurking over there – so greater chances for you to score that Moldovan beauty.
Second, all the ladies there are actively looking for a relationship. No time wasters there, so it saves up a lot of time.
Third reason is the service itself. Not only that it’s one of tradition in the area and it features tons of profiles (which are actively verified to ensure that they are from real people), but it also gives you the advantage of proving you’re not a bootstrapper.
You send all the right messages by paying for the service: you’re mature and established enough to be able to afford it (it’s not like it costs a fortune anyway!), you are taking a proactive approach to your sentimental life AND you know where to search.
All these are pros for women everywhere – including those in Moldova. So trust me when I say that it’s the prefect place to find a local that speaks good English – and do it fast.
So do yourself a favor and sign up today. You don’t even have to be in the country in order to start searching already!
How do Moldovan Women Look Like?
Well, for starters, it’s important to remember that Moldova women are, in fact, Eastern European women. They’re truly the cream of the crop in the world.
Whatever they put in the food and water in Eastern Europe, it’s resulted in just such a stunning demographic of women.
It’s truly incredible if you haven’t seen it for yourself (though admittedly I’m not sure I’d recommend Moldova as your first venture – I’d be more inclined to point you in the direction of Poland or Ukraine).
Perhaps it’s the many years of turmoil that Eastern Europe has faced that has led to quite a mixed gene pool, but whatever it is – I’m not complaining.
And I’m sure you won’t either. I just wish it could be bottled and sold around the world.
Back on topic: Moldova women are stunning.
They tend to have the high cheekbones, long straight hair, and generally slim bodies that you find throughout Eastern Europe.
The women of Moldova also tend to have a bit of that “dusky” look, which is so difficult to put into words but everybody knows.
Generally speaking, you’re likely to find the slightly dark hair types, but that’s not to say you can’t find your fair share of lighter hair colors in Moldova, either.
Personality Traits of Moldovan Girls / Women
You must remember this – Eastern Europe as a whole is a “cold” place. This means that much of the warmth (or fakeness, depending on who you ask) of Western people is lost in Eastern Europe.
I prefer to think of it as people being more real. More genuine.
Part of it is the weather that plagues the region for half the year. Part of it is the personalities. And in some places, like Moldova, the coldness is just from fatigue.
Fatigue at always being in the middle of wars, conflict, and generally getting the short end of the stick no matter what you do
And frankly, I do think part of it comes from the… well, kind of depressing architecture.
Just take a look at the buildings below. You’ll see the typical blocks and blocks of Soviet housing which are definitely not amazing (at least to me).
(If you’re looking for a place to stay, read my post about the best Chisinau hotels.)
Don’t be upset if your Moldova girl is a bit cold to you at first – with time, she’ll warm up (keep reading to find out more).
But apart from this coldness and the fact that they don’t smile that often, women from Moldova actually have some really amazing personalities.
They are fierier than others and can sometimes be described as stubborn, but it’s a good thing in the end because that “fire” extends on all areas of life – private and public.
Moldovan women are educated and stylish and relatively open minded. They grow in a society where casual hookups are generally frowned upon and marriage is expected to happen before you hit 30 (similar to how it is in Belarus) – but in most cases they are open minded and modern.
Chivalry is not dead there and you will be expected to act like a man and treat your woman right, but without completely becoming the only dominant factor in the relationship.
Women in Moldova like their independence – but at the same time they enjoy a strong arm by their side to give a helping hand whenever it’s needed.
What it’s like dating a Moldovan woman
As I said, casual hook-ups and one night stands are not the norm in Moldova. While the modern approach is definitely making its way there and finding many adepts, we’re talking about more traditional relationships in the area.
This means that monogamy is expected and demanded, but also that you have to go through the entire dating process before you’re officially accepted – and expect to be in it for the long run.
Many women in Moldova will look at you as marriage material (or not). This is their culture and approach, but fortunately this doesn’t mean that they expect you to put a ring on their finger after a few dates.
They do look at you at a whole and consider how good you’d be as a future husband. So if she still sticks with you after a while, it’s all good.
There are some girls in Eastern Europe who truly do want to find marriage to a Western guy. Their reasons may be legitimate or not, but it’s safe to say they have a desire to leave their home country.
While I won’t advise you on whether or not this is a road you should even go down, I will say this:
Watch out for the scams!
Please, please, please!
You can easily fall for some of these ladies who are in reality not interested in your person and don’t even want to be in a relationship with you.
Fortunately, it’s easy to identify them (and fortunately there are more genuine, honest women in Moldova than not).
Still, this is how the bad seeds work – pay really close attention to these signs:
- Usually, very beautiful girls are chosen to have professional photos taken by an agency
- These photos are sent to you (warning sign: if ALL her photos look like they’ve been made in a studio – run away!)
- “Chat girls” are actually hired to pretend to be this very beautiful girl and they are experts in manipulation and getting to milk you of your money
- They will directly ask you to send them “small” gifts, help them recharge their SIM cards or invite you to call them through services that they choose (and they cost many dollars per minute). All these should be clear signs that you are dealing with a scammer – so run away!
- In the event that you are still there and you somehow decide to come to Moldova to meet her in person, the original beauty is called – but she will come with a “translator” you will have to pay for. The woman probably knows expert English, but it’s a way to get more money from you. Again a BIG warning sign.
- The end result is the man being fooled on the internet, fooled in person, and usually going home heartbroken, confused, and out thousands of dollars
DO NOT LET THIS BE YOU.
So, what is a safe bet?
If you’re considering heading to Moldova, you should definitely consider doing some online dating in preparation.
This will prepare you for the questions (read the next section for the run-down on those), the language barriers, and give you an inside peek at Moldova women and their personalities.
With that being said, Russian Cupid is a legitimate websites to find a Moldova girl. Since the country is too small, there is not a dedicated site to it, but you will find plenty of them there.
The site is ran by real people who constantly do ID checks, so the risks of meeting those scammers are minimal. You still need to pay attention to the signs – and fortunately they’re easy to spot now that you know them
So rather than forking over thousands of dollars to some “dating agency” that will scam you, just sign up for a month of Euro Cupid! Real, honest ladies will be there for you.
There Are Plenty of Good Moldova Women
I promise you, they do exist. But you do have to go find one, and while she’ll be curious and interested – she may also be suspicious.
You should expect any genuine Moldova girl to have a billion questions about why you’re in her home country.
She may accuse you of being there just to lure women
She may ask why you don’t like dating women in your home country.
She will have her guards up in order not to get hurt by you. Many Eastern European women are like this towards foreigners, and it’s perfectly legitimate.
These are actually good signs that you found a real girl, and not a scammer. Scammers “fall in love” with you in one second and start asking for gifts and dinners at expensive restaurants. Real Moldovan women that are honestly interested in you won’t.
Once you break down those barriers, the women of Moldova are some of the best in the world. Not only will you get stunning beauty, but a true desire to please you.
She’ll want to do the “little things” for you and always treat you right – bake your favorite dish, iron your shirt for a night out, and genuinely take care of you.
If you take the time to genuinely take an interest in her, her life, and her country and culture – the sky is truly the limit.
Enjoy your trip to Moldova!
