Bulgarian Women: What They Don’t Tell You

Last updated: October 16, 2018

Zero. Zilch. Nada.  That’s how much I knew about Bulgaria, a small Slavic country perched at the edge of southeastern Europe.  I knew nothing about its inhabitants.  And — most importantly — I knew nothing about the women.

Bulgarians must be some of the most mysterious of all the Europeans because in all of my travels I’ve never met a single Bulgarian.  But Maverick, you point out, Bulgarians aren’t very rich to travel like Americans or other Western Europeans. Fair enough. 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. 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.

Introduction

My first impressions of Bulgaria was that it’s a very poor country. In fact, having seen most of Europe, I would say Bulgaria is undoubtedly one of the poorest countries on the continent. (After checking the data, I realized that Bulgaria is actually #10 on the list).

I’m a big city guy, and Sofia—the capital—was the first European capital that I wanted to leave as soon as I arrived.

Plovdiv, the second biggest city, is more pleasant, but outside the historical old town, the city is no better than Sofia.

History

During the reign of Soviet Union, Bulgaria was widely considered the 16th republic of the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union had 15th republics, but because it had very strong ties to Bulgaria, the country was considered an unofficial part of the Soviet Union.

Rumor has it that the Soviet Union took a lot of wealth in the form of natural resources and agriculture from Bulgaria, but may have provided some infrastructure back in return. The jury is still out who benefited whom.

After the fall of the Soviet Union, Bulgaria became a democratic nation and held free elections.

In 2007, Bulgaria, along with Romania, joined the European Union.

Although Bulgaria is part of the EU, it’s not part of the Schengen Zone, the passport-free zone that’s composed of most of the EU countries (and even some non-EU members like Norway and Switzerland).

Language

Bulgaria’s official language is Bulgarian, a South Slavic language that’s very similar to other Slavic languages.

It’s written in Cyrillic script just like most of the Slavic languages with the exception of Croatian.

As a native Russian speaker, I could read Bulgarian and even pick up some of the words and expressions. 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. (From what I gathered, many younger Bulgarians studied and lived in countries like Germany and Denmark.)

Forget using English if you want to reach an older audience (45 and plus). In that case, Russian may come more in handy.

The women

The first thing that you notice about Bulgarian women is the amazingly dark, jet-black hair (the girl below is very typical Bulgarian). 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. There’re no hipsters with bright clothing and large framed glasses, although that’ll probably change in the next few years as Western advertising becomes more prevalent.

This is similar to how women (and men) dress in neighboring Romania, Ukraine and Russia.  Dressing like an Eastern European means, for the most part, also having an Eastern European mentality, which in turn means that the women are extra feminine and the men are, well, very manly. No feminism and metro-sexuality here.

On paper, Bulgarians are Slavs just like most of Eastern Europeans (Serbians, Ukrainians, Russians, Polish).  However, I’d never guess that if I saw a random Bulgarian girl walking on the streets of New York.  My first guess would easily be Greek, with a bit of Turkish thrown in.  In other words, more Balkan than purely Slavic.

What kind of guys do they like?

I spent enough time in Bulgaria to understand that Bulgarian women love their fellow Balkan men. Of course, they love other Bulgarian men. But, if you’re a dark and handsome guy from the Balkans—whether it’s Serbia, Romania, Montenegro—you should be well received.

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. Many Bulgarian women showed interest right away probably because I was from a big and famous city, and that may have meant I also had some money on me.

As soon as I mentioned I was from Russia, women began showing their interest and asking me questions.

Of course, that wasn’t with every single girl I approached, but it happened enough times that it sure piqued my curiosity and maybe think there was something more to it.

I also think that Bulgarian women—just like other Balkan people—prefer Southern Europeans such as Spaniards and Italians. When I was in Barcelona, I met a good share of Bulgarians who made the city home and had Spanish boyfriends.

General observations about the women

Most women have serious boyfriends

If you see a confident, well-dressed woman, chances are she has a (serious) boyfriend.  On my second day, I met a very cute girl on the Sofia metro.  Everything was going great until she told me that she’s on her way home to her boyfriend.  Another girl I met in a coffee shop told me she moved to Sofia (from a smaller city) to be with her boyfriend.

While this is very typical in Eastern Europe, it’s greatly amplified in the Balkans.  This is something I can mitigate in Ukraine and Russia, but I would need more time on the ground to learn the optimal game for Bulgarian women.  The flip side is that fewer quality girls are always single and ready to mingle.

Being Western isn’t a novelty

Telling girls that I was an American from New York would elicit a lukewarm response.  It was almost like I was from some generic city that everyone had already “been to” thanks to the numerous movies and TV shows allowing anyone to live there vicariously.  Perhaps being an American is becoming more and more generic than a novelty.  I experimented by telling them I was a Russian guy from Moscow and received slightly more interesting reactions.

Of course, this would vary depending on the kind of girls you’re dealing with.  The “Eastern European” type I mentioned above would gravitate to “alpha” Eastern Europeans (e.g., a Russian guy from Moscow); whereas a hipsterish girl might dig American/Western guys more.

Hit or miss knowledge of English

For a poor, Southern European country, Bulgarians speak surprisingly good English.  Most women I talked to were able to understand me and reply with no problems — until you meet one who doesn’t.  One interesting fact is that most girls are also studying or already speak Spanish.  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).

Lack of eye contact

Like in most of Eastern Europe, smiling and eye contact directed at strangers is generally a sign of weakness.  I look Southern European for the most part, and, as a result, received almost no eye contact in Bulgaria.  Most Bulgarians easily thought I was Bulgarian or even Greek, so relying on eye contact is a poor indicator of interest.  I would assume being a 6’4” Norwegian Viking with spiky blonde hair would buy you more attention, but still, it wouldn’t be something I would rely on.  If you’re southern European looking like me, you’ll have to work to get noticed.

Traditional dating culture

Nothing surprising here: Balkans is one of the most conservative regions in Europe when it comes to dating and courtship.  I estimate you’d need solid three days of dates (or more) before getting her to come back home with you.  Don’t expect to fly in on EasyJet from London for a weekend and bang women left and right.  I would aim for at least a solid two weeks, but, as usual, the more the better.  Pipeling beforehand might help, but I don’t do that so I wouldn’t know.

Meeting women during the day

When I was in Sofia, I spent a good share of my time approaching women on the streets. I won’t try to sugarcoat anything, but it was tough. The biggest problem was that the women just weren’t used to being approached.

Maybe it was because I was ugly or didn’t speak English, but they simply kept going instead of stopping and answering my question.

Some women did stop, but nothing came out of it.

I had much better luck in situations where the women weren’t in a rush anywhere, like bookstores, cafes, stores, and malls. As you would expect, these women were generally much more receptive to my approaches.

Of course, being a Balkan country with its relatively conservative women, I knew that I couldn’t simply fly in, approach a couple of women and instantly create a harem and enjoy life.

That’s certainly not the case.

Nevertheless, I still recommend approaching during the day because you’re able to meet women who otherwise wouldn’t be approached (I don’t believe Bulgarian guys are keen on approaching women). You can grab her contact information and try to build something later on.

Where to meet women during the day

Although I approached everywhere and anywhere, the best luck I had was actually in the Sofia malls. It seemed that Bulgarians love their malls, so the women were naturally much more relaxed there than in pretty much any other setting.

I don’t particularly recommend approaching out in the open since that resulted in some bewildering expressions, but if that’s what you like, then I won’t hold you back.

Do what you’re most comfortable in.

Meeting women at night

Bulgarians love their nightlife and there’s never any shortage of it in Sofia. Sofia has it all: American-style bars, expat bars, local bars, live music, jazz venues, and regular nightclubs.

Bulgarians love going out and love drinking. Just like in the rest of Balkans, the alcohol is strong and the guys can be aggressive.

I remember one night I was in a club in Bulgaria. I had been there for about 30 mins when I spotted a cute woman alone at the bar. I approached and started talking to her.

Not even ten minutes had passed when I was suddenly surrounded by two guys dancing next to us. They were trying to chat up the girl and block me at the same time.

While I knew what was going on, I was a bit lost and confused because nothing like this happened before. I don’t remember the last time I was so aggressively blocked in Europe or even Latin America.

The Balkans are different. In fact, I remember a time when the same thing happened when I was in Bucharest$.

That’s one thing you must watch out for.

Other than that, the nightlife is great and you can easily meet the woman of your dreams if you pick the right venue. Just stay away from drunk and rowdy Bulgarian guys.

Meeting women online

While I didn’t spend too much online, I assume that, just like anywhere else, Tinder is a solid option. There also might be local sites where you can meet Bulgarian women.

Where to stay in Bulgaria

Bulgaria is not a big country, so there aren’t a whole range of cities to pick from.

The first city you should visit is Sofia, the capital. Sofia isn’t the prettiest city nor is it a particularly pleasant city to be in. In many ways, Sofia reminds of a 2nd or 3rd tier city in Russia or Ukraine. It’s nowhere near the level of sophistication or grandeur of Kiev or Moscow. It’s also nowhere near the prettiness of Baltic capitals such as Riga or Vilnius.

Nevertheless, Sofia is the very best that Bulgaria has to offer, so you have to visit it and see it for yourself.

Plovdiv was another city I visited. I spent about a week there, just hanging out, getting some work done, and approaching women. It’s cheaper and slower than Sofia, and maybe even a bit friendlier.

Still, this being Bulgaria it’s not a city that I can see myself living in.

The third and final city where I spent a lot of time in was Burgas on the Black Sea coast. Burgas is a small city with a nice beach, but it’s nowhere near the grandeur of $Odessa, Ukraine’s main beach destination.

After about a month of living there, I was pretty done and finished and was ready to move on.

Where you stay will really depend on whether you’re a big city guy, a small city guy or prefer somewhere along the beach. The right approach is to visit all three cities and decide for yourself.

When to visit

Like the rest of Europe, Bulgaria has very hot summers and cold winters. Unlike Ukraine or Russia, Bulgaria is more south so it enjoys much longer summers and relatively mild winters (there’s still plenty of snow).

I had the fortune of experiencing Bulgaria in both winter (Sofia) and summer (Burgas).

During the winter, I experienced heavy snow with the temperatures hovering around -5 – -10 C degrees. During the summer, it was around 30 C, so I spent many days inside air-conditioned malls.

One of the benefits of visiting in winter is that there are much fewer tourists, especially by the coast. But I still don’t know if it’s the right trade-off with the freezing temperatures.

Come to think of it, the summer wasn’t bad at all.

The food

I don’t usually write this, but I wasn’t terribly impressed with Bulgarian cuisine. Maybe I went to all the wrong restaurants, but my only recollection about Bulgarian food was really bitter cheese, lots of fried food and that’s about it.

As an Eastern European guy, I know that Bulgarian cuisine is great, it’s just I didn’t really experience that.

Maybe on my next trip, I will do my research as to where to go in order to have the very best culinary experience in that country.

Final thoughts

Bulgaria was only my second exposure to the Balkans (Serbia was the first).  I definitely need more time on the ground to learn more about this interesting region and its beautiful women.  That should all change this summer when I return there for a longer and more deeper exploration.

  1. Those look like some beautiful and exotic women.

    • Oh, yes they are. Search for Луиза Григорова (Luiza Grigorova), Радина Кърджилова (Radina Kardjilova), Николета Лозанова (Nikoleta Lozanova), Мария Илиева (Mariya Ilieva), Джулия Бочева (Julia Bocheva), Снежана Макавеева (Snejana Makaveeva), Михаела Филева (Mikhaela Fileva), Райна (Raina), Диляна Попова (Diliyana Popova), Гинка Лазарова (Ginka Lazarova). And so much more but I can’t think of any other now.

  2. Loving these posts about women. So, what’s next for you after Bulgaria?

  3. Bulgaria was my first experience in Eastern Europe. What I remember most was that these women want “men”—nothing pussified whatsoever. Any feminized hipster shit from America and they’ll just look at you with confused eyes, suddenly considering you gay and without a doubt no longer attractive material. I’m not suggesting you walk around like a gorilla, but you catch my drift.

    I notice you didn’t mention Bulgaria’s neighbor to the south, Turkey. I lived here for close a year. Beautiful women who are similar to Bulgarian girls in many ways. However, the religious shaming in the semi-Islamic culture definitely creates a type of war here between the sexes I was not quite familiar with. Any experience here? Middle Eastern girls are actually as horny as the next woman but the culture adds a new layer of headache. I’d still take Turkish girls hands down over American women despite the added challenge. Wonderful people overall.

    • Dude, you know nothing of Bulgarian women…except that feminine-looking hipsters are not too attractive for us…let’s say at all. I would say your American mentality is the biggest barrier to you finding a girl that would be interested in you in Bulgaria(or any neighboring land for that matter) 🙂 If you want to get to – really conquer, any Balkan girl you need to know something about the culture and history, because those are cultures 10 times older than yours. And, yes, Turkish women do look bit alike, because of all the Slavic and Balkan women the Ottomans kidnapped/raped/married during the 5 centuries we
      were under their rule(and there are quite a lot of Turkish still in Bulgaria) . Plus, by the way, there are quite a lot of blond girls also (maybe more in the Eastern part of the country).
      All in all, the most important lesson you should learn is not to look down on people, because they come from a less economically developed country – the fact the historical and cultural chance was not on our side to get good decisions in history, has nothing to do with intellect and capabilities. Noone is fascinated by the fact you are American – we have loads of you even living in the country, and half of the students have done at least one summer on Work and travel in the USA (mostly out of curiosity)
      You haven’t heard about someone Bulgarian maybe because people are quite well integrated wherever they live and quite successful too(of course not all of them). If you use a computer and have heard of John Atanasoff you could check he was of Bulgarian origin.
      Anyway, I wish you good luck on the Balkans cause you have a lot to learn 😉

      • Well Said Man, Stupid Yankees, need to learn more history about the real cultures, about the real world

      • This article is a comlete bullshit! I know it is a personal opinion and I can not judje you for the way you see Bulgaria, BUT the statements you make are just demonstration of poor culture, lack of a lot of knowedge and experience. Better keep it for yourself! 😉

        • Was wondering if I could LICK a Bulgarian woman. How much I have to pay to lick her? Do I have to take permission from her parents? 🙂
          Seriously, I want to pamper and spoil a Bulgarian lady. Anybody interested, please.

          • That comment alone shows me you most defenately do NOT want to meet a Bulgarian woman,’cuz she will kick your ass(if you’re lucky!)! Bulgarian men don’t take kindly to when a foreigner sees Bulgarian women as just sex objects – you will be beaten to a pulp and there’s no escaping it! AND Bulgarians are far better fighters than Russians (there are some exceptions of course ) and we all know what reputation Russians have ,now don’t we!

      • Very well said!!!! Great job Eirene

      • A Bulgarian woman

        July 3, 2016 at 1:21 am

        Well said! I’m Bulgarian and I find this article offensive! Haha

      • there you go…I was just about to type your words-very true is everything you said. I was reading and reading about those women with black nice hair 😀 where did all blonde go? ..and mate, no one cares where you come from as long as you are nice looking and able to make the girls laugh I can assure you are going to have good Balkan level of success 😀
        Indeed you certainly need much deeper and greater exploration regarding this topic because so far your analyses are simply vague . I am strongly recommending you to spend a lot more time in your next visit getting closer to the locals in order to achieve some results….

        good luck

      • Well said, Eirene. Being Bulgarian myself I can tell from this guy’s ( the author’s) story that Bulgarian women were just not interested in him.All the nice ones told him they had boyfriends? Yeah well, they were polite enough despite his arrogance and shallowness 😉

    • This whole “article” was the dumbest thing I have ever read. Your level of ignorance is absolutely unreachable. This comes from a Bulgarian girl. Hope my english is good enough for you.

      • LOL. Thanks for your warm comment.

        • You are welcome. Make sure, next time you go to a “mysterious” country, to at least read something about it, because you are giving false ideas to the peope who are reading your blog. False ideas for what life is outside of the extraordinary American shell and the great surprise of people not bowing to you when you say you are American. If you have the audacity to take people’s money in exchange of your “journalism” at least be, somewhat, accurate.
          By the way, the fact that you do not know a single Bulgarian is just another proof how poor and sad your culture is. There are famous Bulgarians in almost every field.
          Cheers!

        • James Maverick im honestly really disappointed here’s some things to tell you not to mess with Bulgaria. firstly you know how America drops bombs from planes?? you know where that idea came from/… its Bulgaria and Bulgaria the3rd richest European country and one of the most powerful country.. so powerful that they seriously froze a Serbian to death for trespassing. so mr marerick I just wanna say your wrong and read a book for once instead of making stupid false lies

          • yes and great bulgaria make big wall they call chinese, but is wrong is great bulgaria wall!!! Bulgaria is best country #1 is fact!

    • Ughh! This ASSHAT that has written this “article”, is such a colossal piece of horse shit! The entire article is based around bedding women in different countries, by throwing in the ring the fact that the asshole’s American! WHAT a MORON! I’m guessing that it’s not so much so much about his being from “America” and that not being a big panty dropper, it’s more so that he’s an intellectually challenge douche bag! What a typical entitled jackass, that I’m quite sure, undoubtedly came from a rich family that gave into his “thirst for travel” at an early age. And he’s probably never had to worry about earning his own money, so galloping round’ the planet, in hoped of getting into foreign women’s trousers, becomes his main driving source! Everything about this article makes me want to punch this little man in the face! I guarantee he’s 5’8″ or less, of less than powerful stature. And, THAT in itself, little man syndrome, is the root source of his need to conquer and bed as many woman as he possibly can, across the globe.

    I have to tell you that most of Bulgarian girls have light to dark brown hairs. Most of them dye their hairs. I am telling you that, because I am half Bulgarian and I have dark blonde hair and I dye it black. It’s very rare to see natural black hair in Bulgaria.

    • Maverick, some world famous Bulgarian sportsman you “don’t know” about: Hristo Stoichkov, Dimiter Berbatov. Hint: Football.

    Someone send me this:

    Sorry but what kind of paper you’ve read?????
    “On paper, Bulgarians are Slavs just like most of Eastern Europeans (Serbians, Ukrainians, Russians, Polish). However, I’d never guess that if I see a random Bulgarian girl walking on the streets of New York. My first guess would easily be Greek, with a bit of Turkish thrown in. Another words, more Balkan than purely Slavic.”

    you’ve sad that you don’t know nothing about us, so you are right 🙂
    And, you are right that Bulgarians are Balkans. Yes they are. But Balkans exist not only in Europe. Bulgarian kingdoms where existed in many parts of the world.
    For example in Caucasus mountains also have Balkans – they are “Balakan Rayon”, because Bulgaria in 7th century north of the Caucasus mountains had a kingdom there-
    The Old Great Bulgaria. So before a long time ago, we lived in the border between Europe and Asia, situated between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea.
    After they move west up on Black sea and make here in Europe another Bulgarians Lands.

    So like you say: “in Bulgaria, many women were light skinned but with jet black hair, A STRANGE COMBINATION POINTING TO A MIXING OF GENES”
    This exactly is the Asian-Caucasian ROOT from the Old Bulgarians. Everybody know that all Asian peoples are withe skins, with black hairs, and this is not mixture of genes, but this is the typical genes from all east nations!!!!!
    And all EAST nations and peoples have big indicative CHEEK BONES!!!.
    So most of the old Bulgarian genes with this specific characteristic in fact are now in modern Bulgarian woman and mans.

    Look Sophia Loren she is an Italian.
    How she get this genes in Italy???? with BIG CHEEK BONES, and upper-ed eyes??? From the Roman Imperia???
    What was the local peoples in Italy before Roman Imperia??? You don’t know..
    This skulls and face is typical for Caucasian Old Bulgarian. Also is typical gene for all nations that’s comes from East!!!!!
    So you have to admit that Italians are also mixed. By the way all nations are mixed genes, nobody have pure 100%, blood.
    And in all Western Europe the genes are mixed from Asian-European, rather than Native-Porto-Old European, like Bulgarian and most South-Slavic countries.
    So look the latest DNA results in eupedia.com, if you want to became more thinking man, rather only to write on the net some doubts, or funny things.

    Principally the classical beauty for real, native, old Bulgarian girl is almost beauty like the third picture you put here,
    except, that most have light eyes.
    The face is with oval shape, indicative cheek-bone, white skin tone, light eyes, and dark hair- but not extremely dark, mostly are light brown, like I saw one other commentar here.
    So, typically Bulgarian girl is with white skin tone, not Dark, Mysterious etc…
    we don’t have songs for “Brown girls”- like the Boney.M song !!!! – hahah 😀

    In all our folklore songs, we sing for “White girls, shining eyes, and lite brown hairs.
    And by the way the Danubian peoples, Balkans, Thracians, Macedonians..etc..all where lived here in Bulgaria,
    we have mostly local DNA, from this local land, so its mean that The Balkan peoples are more “White” than “Brown”.

    And, its shame for you to don’t know where The Balkans are in the Europe! – they are not in Ukraine, Russia, or upper in Eastern Europe!
    Eastern Europeans (Ukrainians, Russians, Polish etc.)- you’ve mentioned are North-Eastern Europeans! and they are not refer to Balkans nations.
    All Balkans nations which we are common with – are South-Eastern Europeans!
    (Bulgaria, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Serbia, Albania, Greece, Croatia,) And this is Southeast Europe!
    We have the-most common DNA with this countries, and all root a branch they are white and high – tall peoples!
    Also, “Slavs” don’t mean “White peoples”. In the fact “Russian” mean it! (Russ – is Bright, light).
    And the term “Slavs” is not for common group of nations.. This is a group for the language family roots -from many different nations.

    Second all the big part from The Balkan Peninsula is in Bulgaria!!!
    and it mean our “Old Mountain” in our home lands.
    So the word “Balkan” in Bulgarian language mean “a mountain”.
    Look some maps where are the Balkans in the Europe!

    After, Greek are not what you think! They are shorter than us, and have more black peoples than withe.
    Greeks are not withe race! They are Mesopotamian, Minoan Greek, Phoenician and have Balkans also.
    And many Turks also have withe skins and blue eyes. So it is not everything “black and white” -like you think.

    Turks have mostly J1 -Semitic (Arabic, Jewish) genes Haplogroup ,
    Bulgarians don’t have J1 DNA Semitic (Arabic, Jewish) genes
    So you are in mistake with them also, the most dominant gene DNA in their blood is from Arabians, that’s why they have so and more brown skin.
    So if we have brown skinned tone it is not from the Turks!
    Also, In many native Turks has Blue-Eye. Because the mutation of the DNA which is responsible
    for the “blue eyes” was formed here in the rayon of Black Sea.

    By the latest DNA research Bulgarians have mostly black toned skin from the E1b1b1a1 (or E-M78, formerly E3b1a)
    Also is the most common variety of haplogroup E among Europeans and Near Easterners.
    E-M78 is thought to have migrated out of Egypt in the Mesolithic or Neolithic to colonize the Middle East,
    where it mixed with the indigenous inhabitants belonging to haplogroups J and G.

    The Phoenicians, from the Levant, also contributed to the spread of E1b1b1a (as well as J2, Q and T)
    to places such as Cyprus, Malta, Sardinia, Ibiza and Southern Iberia – Basques

    With these results, Bulgarians have more common with Sardinia’s and Iberian-Basques, rather with Turks.
    Look this map:
    http://www.eupedia.com/images/content/Haplogroup-E1b1b.jpg

    The traditional folklore costumes from Basques and Bulgarians are the same.
    Also, Basques have our characteristically colors for their flag: withe, red and green. So obviously Basques are migrated from our lands in Eastern Europe to Spain
    All Mediterranean peoples have more brown toned skin: like Greeks, Ibiza, Sardinia etc.from the islands .
    And Yes, we have more common DNA with Greeks, but with Turks – Less common=No.

    By the historical point of view, thoroughly and distinction the old Bulgarians where tall,
    with withe skin, dark hairs and with indicative cheek-bone. This is the characteristic for more like Asian genotype rather Slavic.
    So In every Kingdom that Bulgarians settle, they named the villages and Majors towns with names like:
    Белград, Бяла, Белово, Belgrad, Bolgorod, Valge “valge – бял” – which means – “white, bright, shine, beauty, clear…”
    “Bella” in italian also mean Beautiful,
    “Bell” in all Slavic languages mean “withe” “shine” and “beautiful”

    So in conclusion our Old Bulgarian Nation was like this -> Withe peoples and beautiful, also they called them “brilliant, aristocratic”
    This what is meaning of Bulgarian.
    That Bulgarians were truly noble people, evidenced by the fact that they never killed their captive and prisoner-of-war.
    Bulgarian never do a massive killing of peacefully living peoples in the conquest lands,
    Bulgarians never had slaves, in any his-own Imperia, or Kingdom!
    And this is something not typical for the aggressive ancient world!!!.

    That’s why the name meaning of “Bulgarian Peoples” is “white, brilliant, aristocratic”.

    this is the map where old Bulgarians towns with “white” names

    • So many words and none of them right…

        Anything in particular?

        • Bulgaria is the oldest slavic country, we created the cyrilic alphabet, and if you say that Bulgarian girls are dark, How can you explain that I am a Bulgarian girl and I have light skin and blue eyes? Most of my family, friends and my old classmates look like that, and I have met a lot of foreign people who think I am from Ukraine (I don’t have any ancestor from Russia or Ukraine). Of course is going to be hard for you to get a girl if you’re really specific and you think you are Barney Stinson. The terms slavic and balkan are the same, and most of the balkanic people are white. And btw the typical Turkish person is fair haired, light skinned with blue eyes, but maybe in the asian part they most of them don’t look like that. But I don’t think it really matters the outside look if you’re not smart enough, so take this post down to not confuse all of the people who read this and let them visit the countries you talk about and see them by themselves.

        • Maverick, you seem to really be confused.. Bulgarian and Ukrainian women look very similar. If you think most Slavic, especially Ukrainian women are some blonde blue eyed cliche.. you’d sadly be disappoined. Even before Slavic waves people from Poland, Ukraine, Slovakia all the way to Macedonia have been experiencing waves migrating from the south to the north and vice versa.. so these “Balkan” appearances are pretty typical in places like Ukraine. You just seem to think the typical Slav looks like a Finno-Ugric person in Russia lol. Here is a typical Ukrainian woman: Zlata Ognevich.. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/3/39/Zlata_Ohnevytj%2C_ESC2013_press_conference_08_%28crop%29.jpg/1200px-Zlata_Ohnevytj%2C_ESC2013_press_conference_08_%28crop%29.jpg she looks no different than many Bulgarian women. Also, these looks have nothing to do with Turks, they’re native European looks and have been present in Eastern Europe forever lol.. remember Eastern Europe was home to people like the Scythians who mixed with Slavs and they had typical.. “Eastern European-Mediterranean” like features… anthropologists used to call this “Pontic” back in the day

        • Yes, Maverick… Just pick one up from all you’ve said. Starting with the first three words (WTF are these, they are not Bulgarian words). Continuing with almost every fact you’ve stated (e.g. no famous Bulgarians – check John Atanasov, Hristo Stoichkov,….)

          Every piece of the world has it’s nice side. And I can’t respect your post, which talks non sins and cites only negative facts.

      • Poor you, poor you, can you read?If you can, go read a bit history and ethnology, dickhead bitch:)

    • I agree with maverick, bulgarians are not blond slavic people. mix of thracians, bolgars, turks and slavs and there is nothing wrong with it. Italians or sophia loren is totaly nonsense, italians look different, facial features and skull are very different.

      • Well I am very blonde, green eyed, fair-skinned , tall-ish Bulgarian woman with quite Nordic features, apparently. So does most of my family – we come from Central Bulgaria ( Troyan region), I know the family trees from both sides of the family 300 years back…. Does it matter to me? Not one bit. You can be an arse or a decent guy whether you are a brunette or blonde, and same applies to nationality.
        Also, at the level at which the author approaches women in BG, no wonder they see right through his desperate little game.

      • False.. genetic studies have shown that all Slavic + other East Euros like Romanians and Hungarians are very genetically similar to each other: https://genographic.nationalgeographic.com/reference-populations-next-gen/ we see that 55% of Bulgarians score “Eastern EUropean” genetically, 49% of Romanians, and 59% of Poles and Russians. This means the largest genetic component among these people is indigenous “Eastern European”… also the Slavs are now believed to have been derived from ancient Southern European people, NOT northern Europeans.. the reason blonde hair is more common in Northern Slavs is because Northern Slavs mixed with more Northern European people… Finno-Ugrics, Baltic natives, Germanics. You have to realize that all Slavs are a mixture of Slavs + other (usually Native) people.. facial feature wise THEY DO LOOK like Slavs. I see Bulgarians daily and they look like the Ukrainian and Polish people I’m used to.. just more darker haired on average.

      • First of all LOL.. the idea that Slavs are all blond is ridiculous.. go to Ukraine most people have brown hair for example, you do realize that Russia was filled with Finno-Ugric people.. so just because they are the blondest Slavs doesn’t mean Slavs looked like all those blonde modern Russians (and many Russians are definitely not blonde.. if you go to the Kuban more look like Bulgarians for example). Also.. False.. genetic studies have shown that all Slavic + other East Euros like Romanians and Hungarians are very genetically similar to each other: https://genographic.nationalgeographic.com/reference-populations-next-gen/ we see that 55% of Bulgarians score “Eastern EUropean” genetically, 49% of Romanians, and 59% of Poles and Russians.

    • Dude I am Bulgarian who is studying in England 😀 some of the things you’ve said are true like we Bulgarian girls are hard to get but some of your information is rather misleading for someone who hasn’t encountered a Bulgarian woman personally. I would like to inform you that you can’t possibly enquire enough information of the short period of time you spent in Bulgaria. What English have noticed about my features is that I have lightly tanned skin with brown eyes (this is very common in Bulgaria) and I have dark curly hair. (but definitely not black ) A lot of girls and women have naturally brown and curly hair but seeing as the majority prefer it straight they straighten it on a daily basis. I can go on and on about your aberrations and the inaccuracy of this text, but it is quite obvious that people will most likely get bored halfway though my correction. If you can try and contain your american sense of superiority (which is rather amusing seeing as you are only raised there) and appreciate other people’s historical legacy rather than their economical background or their social upbringing, it would be much appreciated. Regrettably you weren’t able to appreciate Bulgarian women considering that you were too busy hitting on them using your seemingly bizarre methods. Anyway thanks for the fairly poor attempt to describe the physical features and general behaviour of Bulgarian women. Good effort.

      • I have dream of falling in love with a Bulgarian woman. Is it possible?

        I feel that my soulmate is in Bulgaria.

  6. I am just one of the foreigners living in sofia temporally. I can tell that women in Bulgaria would like men to be just a man. That explains why many Bulgarian guys work out hard on a regular basis. However, I doubt some of things in this post. I would say that you had just looked at the surface of the country rather than taking close look at the deep side of the Bulgaria

  7. Bulgarian women have natural long hair. It can be curly or straight. Black or brown. Our skin colour depends on our backgrounds. It can be white, light or very rare brown. Most of my family have light to brown skin because of our background (mixed with greek and turkish). You can see women with dark, light brown eyes to green, blue and etc. Bulgarian women have beautiful features. You can see women with slim body type but mostly you can see curvy girls. From my point of view when u said “dark and mysterious” u were right. All my friends who are non bulgarian always tell me ” bulgarians are a little bit light-skinned or brown skinned and some of them are white”. I’ve been mistaken for spanish, brazilian, greek or turkish.

  8. Real Bulgarian Women

    October 3, 2013 at 5:43 pm

    I meant the second picture of the first link, however…. the artist managed to capture the true vision and natural beauty of bulgarian women. Not the jet black hair (from hair colorants or else) or the tones of make up, or plastic surgery. Snowhite-looking women are very few in Bulgaria. And the middle height for bulgarian women is 1.65 meters. I`m 1.74 m, and there`s a great number of women 1,70m.

  9. Um, as a bulgarian girl, I can tell you a large part of the article is buuuuullshit. Most of the women with raven black hair have dyed it so, it’s usually just very dark brown. As for the clothes, we don’t wear all black all the time. Even before the hipster fad there were lots of people who wore colourful clothes.
    Most quality girls have (serious) boyfriends : I somehow think that’s a thing all over the world.
    Being Western isn’t a novelty : Dude, of course. It’s interesting to talk about where you’re from in general, but we get a lot of foreigners, mostly on the seaside resourts, but still, nothing new.
    Hit or miss knowledge of English: That goes for most bulgarians, not just women. Though many people can understand you and lead a basic conversation, there aren’t that many with a higher knowledge of the language.
    Lack of eye contact: Okay, this is true, I agree.
    Traditional dating culture: I wouldn’t say so. There are different kinds of people, of course, but for the most part the situation is like this: you meet at a party/park/coffee shop, you talk a while and agree to go out sometime. If the date goes well, chances are that tonight or by the next date, you’ll be in bed together. Not to say bulgarian women are easy, but the concept of ‘we’ll wait 3 dates with a movie, a fancy restaurant and so on’ is very outdated. Bulgarian people are conservative, but for other things, not so much as when you sleep with someone.

    • Dolmaze thank You for Your comments. I appreciate You educating us 🙂

      Drew

    • Dolmaze, i disagree. Your opinion for our traditional dating culture makes me sad. Are you really that easy? My ex boyfriend waited for me 8 months until being intimate (we dated 3 and a half years) . My current boyfriend waited a month and a half ( we are together for a year). I don’t find it bad to have principles, to have high expectations and to want to be sure in your choice . There was one time i had sex with a boy on my third date and i regret deeply , he had a poor opinion of me after this and i had a poor opinion of me .

  10. First of all Bulgarians aren’t Slavic, even if the latest genetic research (2012) says that they are Slavic mixed with Meditteranean. They are mostly Bulgar with some Thracian mixture. They don’t look at all Slavic so they are not. Many Bulgarians believe this.

    • The Slavs never really mixed with the Bulgars, and new ideas point to the Bulgars being in the millions when they came to present day Bulgaria. Also many Bulgarians have a bit of an Asian look, so some Turkic tribes probably mixed with some of the Bulgars (the Asian look in some of the Bulgarians don’t come from the Bulgars, as medievel drawings don’t depict them with Asian features, so that leaves the Pechenegs and Cumans and possibly Avars and Turkmen).

    • False.. genetic studies have shown that all Slavic + other East Euros like Romanians and Hungarians are very genetically similar to each other: https://genographic.nationalgeographic.com/reference-populations-next-gen/ we see that 55% of Bulgarians score “Eastern EUropean” genetically, 49% of Romanians, and 59% of Poles and Russians. This means the largest genetic component among these people is indigenous “Eastern European”… also the Slavs are now believed to have been derived from ancient Southern European people, NOT northern Europeans.. the reason blonde hair is more common in Northern Slavs is because Northern Slavs mixed with more Northern European people… Finno-Ugrics, Baltic natives, Germanics. You have to realize that all Slavs are a mixture of Slavs + other (usually Native) people.. facial feature wise THEY DO LOOK like Slavs. I see Bulgarians daily and they look like the Ukrainian and Polish people I’m used to.. just more darker haired on average.

  11. Slavdom is a cultural thing, nothing to do with genetics. We, Bulgarians, like Croats and Serbians, are South (Balkan) Slavs;not Eastern (Russia, Ukrain, Belarus etc.); or Western Slavs (Poland, Czech Rep., Slovak Rep.).

    • False.. genetic studies have shown that all Slavic + other East Euros like Romanians and Hungarians are very genetically similar to each other: https://genographic.nationalgeographic.com/reference-populations-next-gen/ we see that 55% of Bulgarians score “Eastern EUropean” genetically, 49% of Romanians, and 59% of Poles and Russians.

You have to realize that all Slavs are a mixture of Slavs + other (usually Native) people.. facial feature wise THEY DO LOOK like Slavs. I see Bulgarians daily and they look like the Ukrainian and Polish people I’m used to.. just more darker haired on average.

  12. Most of the world have especially bulgarian,croats,serbs,romanians,greeks etc have IRANIAN roots.

    • You are one stupid muslim idiot. That from a blond Serbo-croat. Iranians have different genetic make up, which means that they are not, as much as they would love to be, related to beautiful (girls) and handsome (guys), tall, blond Slavs. Keep dreaming, but you will remain forever short and black retards.

      I am also tempted to respond to some Bulgarians, on their take on their own roots, but that is a lot more complex due to politically orchestrated beliefs of their roots.

      Will mention just that there is no such thing as “Balkans”. Balkan is the turkish name for mountain chain called “Stara planina” (Old mountain). As for the “peninsula”, or a “region”, there never was one called as such. The term “Balkan” was used by Habsburgs in a pejorative manner to describe everyone south of Austria. Original Bulgarians were Asiatic tribe identical to Hungarians (Bulgaria/Hungaria, catch the similarity?), who came with Slavs and Avars in 7th century. Hence the “Mediterranean look”, as they love to fantasize about themselves.

      If anyone feels an urge to respond with their wrong opinionated crap, please note that I am an arcaheologist and have a very good knowledge of original books, not the grammar school textbooks that teach us all lies about our roots. Debate with shoemakers and supermarket assistants is futile. There is no “god” ( a metaphor, if anyone can catch it) no matter what these ignorants say.

  13. Have you really been to Spain? A lot of adult women have dark hair but not olive skin! You should really check what you write!

  14. Good article “My first guess would easily be Greek, with a bit of Turkish thrown in. Another words, more Balkan than purely Slavic”

    Not wishing to offend anyone, but Greek woman aren’t even in the same Ball-Park as Bulgarians (or Serbian, Croatian, Ukrainian, etc)

  15. My mother is Bulgarian. The family originated in Spain.

  16. Man this is bullshit..

  17. Hey! Im a Bulgarian girl!

    • Здравей! Един ден искам да напускам Австралия за България.

      • Im talking in English so it is easier for you.Във България е доста тъпо,затова си седи във Австралия!

  18. You treat women like dogs to be violated for your amusement, you probably need tons of therapy due to your sociopathic personality disorder and you probably have HIV and definitely have genital herpes.

  19. Hahahah, I’m also Bulgarian and I find this hilarious. Anyway, I would be happy to be the tourguide of a person without any previous knowledge of my culture and show them beyound what you saw, with some references and explanations. 🙂 It’s interesting to see, though, what your first impressions were. In each country you will meet all kinds of people, as you probably know well. So, I can also think of all kinds of friends of mine that perfectly would and wouldn’t match these stereotypes. I only find it sad that you maybe didn’t have a chance/guide to show you more around Sofia – it’s a hidden beauty if you know where to go. I would recommend you also Veliko Tarnovo, Nesebar (but not during the high-peak of the summer – maybe in September), Melnik, Gela village and… everything. I would like to know your opinion also about the cuisine. Finally, although Bulgarians do not generally enjoy the stereotypes for their country and the comparisons with other countries, I did enjoy the article 😀

  20. Even though BG women do have dark hair, they’re unfortunately pretty much blonde in their head

    • how amusing you poor thing can try but never succeed to generalise any type women seeing as there are both intelligent and less capable women in every country. But how would you know when you have clearly not encountered any women at all 🙂 this is a crude comment of a pathetic and lonely man. I apologise to Bulgarian women on your behalf.

  21. Bullshit, bullshit everywhere.

  22. First and foremost you seem sexist and sexually oriented superficial I am American dig me, and I am here to be checked and check you out. Disgusting!

    I am from the red sea myself, not Bulgarian….but I saw a super beautiful girl at my coffee shop and she was so beautiful:)….she looked very much middle-.eastern, arab… But then she said she was from Bulgaria, I was so surprised! I didn’t expect a Bulgarian to look like that, darkish and so arab. But I checked it at the map, I understand why she has this looks. Product of the countries she is surrounded by. We are all mixed, I myself have levantine and ancient egyptian DNA, and for sure a tad greek and very tad arab.

    Hot girl, and to all Bulgarians…I have always had respect for your educations and seriousness. I hope your economy gets better! You are known for being shrewed, make the best of it!!! Kiss

  23. I have a Bulgarian lover, my first Eastern European. Her friend had brown curly hair and green eyes and my girl had brown hair (dyed very blond) and big brown eyes.

    Not particularly beautiful compared to other EE but they had very traditional and loving personalities, my girl is very affectionate and submissive, very quiet but definitely very warm and easy to please. They enjoy having a man by their side and are not competitive towards him, they are respectful of men, they take feminine roles and attitudes and they do so in balance, in other words, the opposite of American women.

  24. recent studies of ancient dna shows a very close match to the present day – the bulgarians are simply one of the peoples of the black sea region and have been here for a very long time.

  25. This is a very ignorant writing for the most part.To put it this way.This is one of the biggest pile of bullshit I have recently heard.
    Let me educate you in few sentenses:
    1.Bulgarians are genetically least Slavic from all Slavic speaking nations.
    2.Raven black hair is very uncomon.
    3.Bulgarians are similar to their neighbours(Mostly Romanians and Macedonians)
    4.Bulgarians are mostly Mediterranean people with some Slavic mixture.
    5.Typical Asiatic haplogroups amongst Bulgarians are less then 2%.
    6.Many Turks today look like Balkan people because of Janissary practices in the past.In fact many of them are assimilated Greeks who lived in the area prior to their arrival.

    You either except these simple facts or you can take your experience with Bulgarians based on 200 people and shove it up your arse.

    • Много си тъп, Саше. С твоите “факти” просто повтаряш неговите глупости и ги затвърждаваш, особено първата точка направо кърти мивки. И прочети повече за така наречените “славяни”.

      • Какъв Саше бе селяндур неграмотен??Това да не ти е улицата да ми говориш така?
        Колкото до коментара ти глупако, ти вземи да прочетеш малко за така наречените “славяни” както казваш, вместо да ми излизаш с постни изказвания без ясни аргументи от типа “темата от хоремака”.Аз се занимавам с антопология от близо 7 години, така че взимай си мотиката и бягай да копаеш на нивата!
        Всъщност никой не разбра какво точно не ти харесва?Искаш да си славянин и не ти харесва факта , че казвам че сме “най-малко” славяни генетично от всички етноси говорещи славянски езици или смяташ, че въобще нямаме нищо общо с тях?
        Фактите:(Харесва ти или не)…Българите са основно амалгама от Тракийските племена, които са населявали Балканите(Траките са посочени като първите заселници по тези земи) и по-късно елинизирани,славяните които пристигат по-късно по тези земи и накрая Пра-българите.От трите групи най-многобройни са били траките(те не са се изпарили ей така!), след това са славяните и най-малобройни но най-напреднали във военно дело са били пра-българите.Фолклора на Балканите е основно балкански с елементи, или на коренните жители: Илири на запад,Траки на юг и Даки на север.

        До гуша ми е дошло от селски разбирачи като теб!

    • Bat recent genetic tests have implied that Slavs actually originated from Southern Europe.. there is no such thing as a Mediterranean people.. as these people such as Thracians, Dacians, ect. lived from Poland all the way to what is now Greece.. obviously Poland, Ukraine, Hungary, Moldova, ect are not anywhere near the Mediterranean. Studies have also shown that all Slavs, plus Romanians and Hungarians are genetically similar to each other: https://genographic.nationalgeographic.com/reference-populations-next-gen/ compare the Eastern European scores in Russians, ROmanians, Bulgarians, and Poles.. it is the predominate component in all of them

  26. You don´t know zilch about the world but I guess you´re American and so I am not too surprised.
    Why would dark jet black hair and very light skin be so unique and typically Bulgarian only? If you really knew about the world, would have travelled extensively or at least would have read lots of books and kept your eyes wide open then you would have learned: Irish women typically have the feature you´re so surprised about – jet black hair and very light skin.
    Moreover the skin of the ladies on the pictures above isn´t that light at all. It´s slightly olive.
    A warning though – don´t think that these beautiful women are backwards because they are from Eastern Europe. These women are very clever. They will take you and your money and once they´re married and well off they´ll get bored and will kick your American ass so they can move on to the next man.
    Good luck mate.

    What an awful article and wrong as well.

  28. Maverick I have to stop you right there. I’m in Bulgaria right now. Guys check this out:

    I met a sexy Bulgarian girl in Mexico which I banged and we had lots of fun for about 5 days, She was very feminine and caring. She and her friend live in London. You are right, they are dark and mysterious, but not in the good sense: Her friend owns a ‘Niru Massage’ place in London and my girl is the manager, it is a place for sexual massages, supposedly the place gives massages and jack guys up and it is legal in many countries.

    Before leaving she confessed she had a kid and was married for 5 years (she’s 27) She then invited me to Sofia Bulgaria a few month laters and seemed happy, upon my arrival she completely ignores me, no sex, no cuddle, has a hectic lifestyle, talks 90% of the time on the phone AND saw her sending a whatsapp text that revealed the ‘Niru Massage’ place is actually a whore house, and they also send prostitutes around London. I’m almost sure her friend who started the business was a whore, my girl (not anymore of course) might have started as one too.
    Bulgaria is very depressing, oddly, the people don’t act as depressed as in other European countries but the atmospheres is dark and depressive.

    The women are beautiful compared to American girls obviously, they are mostly dark seem sexy, dress sexy, upon closer examination one notices they have a lot of facial imperfection and odd hygiene, such as bad teeth, acne, etc. Might invest a lot on hair extensions and perfect hair but might have nose hair and hairy legs (even though, still better than American girls) I did some day game and tinder game just to try and every girl is highly easy to seduce and friendly, I tried tinder and almost every like I gave returned a match. I was walking by the street and stared at a girl and a Bulgarian man talked to me and gave me a business card about whore services but unlike other places in Europe, this man looked like a decent businessman instead of a thug which is even more worrisome. My conclusion about Bulgaria is that it is one of the easiest places to bang ever. BUT a lot of women here have a rabbit hole that never ends, an infinite darkness, a lingering evil, a total lack of innocent. My ex girl did have some friends that seemed quality women in terms of values, etc. But maybe Most of the women here have so many miles in their vaginas that make me feel like a baby.If you really want to bang, this is the place where it will be extremely easy, but you need to be extremely careful, there’s an evil here that never sleeps.

  29. I don’t want to argue with anybody, but I am in debt to say few things. I am from Bulgaria.
    1. Claiming Bulgarian women are close to Turkish, Greek, Italian, Arabic, etc. is ABSOLUTELY ridiculous! Greeks have VERY dark skin, their faces are very symmetrical but their women are EXTREMELY ugly and most of them are very fat. In Bulgaria we have a joke – if some Bulgarian has a Greek girlfriend (very rare), we tell him something like “Oh, you stole one of the three beautiful Greek women, poor Greeks!”.
    2. Italian women are extremely ugly also, but the Turkish ones seems to be the ugliest among all Balkan women, whilst their men are very, very handsome. Believe me, I know a lot of Turks, at least because there is a large Turkish minority in Bulgaria. I must say that Italian men are handsome too and they are very gallant gentleman.
    3. Bulgarians can’t be “like” Macedonians, because Macedonia (also called FYROM) and the Macedonian nation were created by Stalin’s direct order due to political reasons. The Macedonian language is created in Sofia and it is based on the Macedonian dialect in Bulgaria (Macedonia is just the name of an area covering Bulgaria and some parts of Greece). As we say – Macedonian language is a Bulgarian, written on a Serbian typewriter. That’s because some Serbian letters were inserted when creating the “Macedonian” language. Macedonians are 100% brainwashed Bulgarians, there is no ANY doubt about it.
    4. Bulgarians are white in general, but just not as white as some Scandinavian people, Irish, or whatever. There are enough blonde women here.
    5. There are some very profound things, that you won’t understand and you are not supposed to understand, I will mention them very briefly:
    – The existence of “Slavs” is a lie created in the 17th century by Ekaterina The Great of Russia. This is neither ethnicity or nation, nor a “group” of nations. There is NO SINGLE artifact, which contains the word “Slavs” or something similar. Slavic people is probably equal to Bulgaric people.
    – Bulgarians are not “mixed” with all the shit you can imagine, Bulgarians are actually Thracians. “Thracian” is just an ancient appellation for Bulgarians. The “Thracian” tribes called themselves Bolga, Belga, etc.

    • You are one of the biggest idiots around yet you have replied to almost every single post here as if someone gives a fuck about you.
      I will not even comment the first two points you made, because which country’s women are ugliest is irrelevant in the subject.
      -For the Macedonians….Like it or not they were recognised as a country so it is politicaly correct to call them Macedonians!
      -Blondness….Yes, there are blond women, however not so many natural blond.It also depends how you defind blond.Ash blond here is rather rare.
      -For the Slavs….wow what an ignorance…I don’t know who brain washes you , but what you have posted is alsmost as stupid as what that bushy cunt the author has written!
      -The Tracians….now we are talking although you are trying to link the Tracians with Bolga…no no my friend.

      Bottom line is.Take your pils for your mental illness more often and stay away from topics you have no knowledge not to mention proofs of.

    • No I am Turkish with brown eyes mid skin black hair ….

  30. I forgot to say there is a huge “minority” of gypsies in Bulgaria. The second photograph is of a gypsy woman 95% sure. They are nomad people, originating from India, apparently from its lowest castes. They are all quite dark… there is no such thing as blonde gypsy, while there is blonde Bulgarians. ALL gypsies are with very dark skin and hair. They are the poorest part of Bulgarian citizenship. They live in horrific poverty and our government can’t integrate them, because the both sides are not willing to do that. Gypsies are lazy, unlettered, ignorant, and they prefer to live on social shits rather than working a normal job. On the other hand corrupted government doesn’t want to integrate them, because on elections gypsies can be manipulated very easy to vote for a certain party. Of course for money. Type “bulgaria gypsy”, “bulgarian gypsies”, “romanian gypsies”, “macedonian gypsies”, etc. in Google Images and REMEMBER – GYPSIES HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH BULGARIANS! If you want to be aware, consider them as totally different ethnicity. Thinking gypsies or Bulgarian Turks are Bulgarians is a very common mistake.

    • Oh my God! On the second photo is Nina Dobrev! She is not gypsy!

      That theory that Bulgarians are Thracians is not shared by many Bulgarian historians so it is not correct to state it as a fact.

  31. Last thing to say.

    Having traveled extensively in Europe, I would say Bulgaria is undoubtedly one of the poorest countries I’ve ever been to.

    I don’t know in which part of Sofia have you been, but I think you were on the wrong place or you’ve been here for too few days. And if Bulgaria is one of the poorest countries you’ve EVER been, I think you’ve been only in Switzerland and Bulgaria. My friend, Sofia is amazing compared to some US ghetto. Every country has it’s polished side and it’s ugly side. According to your post I think you don’t have no idea what is Bulgaria like. Beside that, right now the infrastructure is developing very fast. After 15 years may be not able to recognize the country. We are replacing the old, dull communist state buildings with new ones, which are modern, we are building new roads, but that’s very hard and slow process. Bulgaria was a communist state until 1989. I’m really surprised of what you think about Bulgaria.

  32. Let me tell you something, your observations are all wrong my man. I am Bulgarian and i have been living in UK for 8 years(biggest mistake i have done in my life). You are right about our country being poor, but all that is thanks to the rich country like U.S and UK(for example). But let talk about our women(i know already you did not have any luck with them) first you mentioned about most of them being with dark hair i think you have been too drank all the time as more Western people are when they come to visit Bulgaria(yes that is true as the alcohol is much cheaper so you can afford it in much higher quantities) and you could not see properly the color of the hair. But that is OK i understand where you coming from. Another think you mentioned above is the way they dress. Let me tell you about my experience when i first saw how the women in UK were dressed(it is the same in America and in the West Europe) i was laughing, i was rolling on the floor, the same way as my 80 years old grand mother is. Yes my first experience in western country was quite disappointing. The sad think is I got use to this funny dressing so i don’t laugh any more i don’t have fun any more. So here my man i have to again disagree. Our women look cool the way they are and they don’t have to change their style.
    But don’t take me wrong i can see where you coming from. You have been in Bulgaria, you did not have very good luck with the women, i understand it could happen to anyone i am man i understand.
    But brother Maverick let me give you a free of charge advise so next time when you come to Bulgaria and try your luck with some of our amazing, lovely, handsome women you could have a better experience. First think don’t relay too much on the fact that you are coming from America and pretend you are a big think(it may again not work). Next do not dress and play like a clown to make them laugh(they again may not like it), but also do not be too serious. You need to find the balance stay in the middle have a joke but at the same time show that you are person they can relay on. You also mention that they did not notice you as you you are not that tall and have this impressive Viking look. Here I have to again disagree in Bulgaria we have tall and short people and it is not necessary to be tall to be noticed.
    Brother Maverick i am getting to this impression from what i have red above that you have some very bad experience in Bulgaria. Do not be worry i will be fine just follow the advise i gave you and you may have some success next time.
    O and one more think brother Maverick if you meet a Bulgarian woman and you go for a date do not think that she will jump in the bed with you straight away because you will be disappointed again and you have to write another post against Bulgarian women with this title “All Bulgarian Women are Virgin”. You need to show them, you need to prove them that you have all the qualities, so she could be with you it could take a weeks or even months. This is not one of the women you meet in America or somewhere in Western Europe.
    OK and in the final next time when you visit Bulgaria do not drink too much although is cheaper, follow strictly the advise i gave you and you may get lucky.

    Best Regards

  33. A few Bulgarian women have a natural black hair. Most of us are with brown hair (light brown or dark brown).

  34. Just a small note: lack of eye contact. Eye contact is actually very important if you are communicating with a Bulgarian. I myself am Bulgarian but have lived in Germany for the past 7-8 years. I’ve met many people from various places and most of them were actually surprised on the almost constant eye contact I had while having a conversation with them. I did some research, talked to a teacher in intercultural communications (a subject I can totally recommend to all to look at!) and also a professor who specialized in…well…teaching people how to talk to others (something like how to make a presentation, be on the stage etc.). Both confirmed this theory. After that I started noticing that in myself and almost all Bulgarians I was with while staying home during the small break I have during the year.

    As for the mixed genes (I know some heretics on the topic “Mighty Bulgarians are X ethnicity and nothing else” will kill me for that) it is due to the way the old Bulgarians (many sources call them Protobulgarians or Bulgars) swiped through Eastern Europe from God knows where, settled first in what is today Ukraine, moved through Moldavia, Romania and finally settled in the center of the Balkans. The Bulgarian nation is said to be approx. 1300 years old (since the first Bulgarian Empire). Do note that nation is not the same as a bunch of tribesmen walking in groups here and there because there were Bulgarians even in todays Italy, which were mercenaries). Here (http://www.novinite.com/media/images/2011-05/photo_verybig_128804.jpg) you can have a look at the approximated movement of the Bulgars (as I said – the “we came from” part is still heavily disputed). Now take all this and combine it with the history of Balkans – Tracians, Greeks, Romans, Crusaders, Arabs etc. and the location of Bulgaria and you get a very mixed genome that is the reason why Bulgarians today look as they are.

    That is why saying that most women have white skin color and dark brown/black hair is also not true. We have blonds, redheads (though as we know red haired people are quite rare in most parts of the world – nature and the human genome are to blame here :3), black haired, brown haired etc. Skin color also varies and I’m not talking about ethnicity. If you look at the Black sea cities and villages there are many people there who have slightly dark skin due to the climate. Same applies to many places in South Bulgaria. Though I have to admit I like dark-skinned women more since darker skin at least for me looks healthier (that is why people say “white as a ghost” and also the skin color of sick people usually gets whiter (excluding sicknesses that cause you to look yellowish or some other unnatural colour)).

    Hope this information is useful. I also hope to see more Bulgarians travel abroad because as it is right now there are many who don’t (the excuse “no money” isn’t a plausible one due to that fact that we are in the European union and you can take a bicycle or hitchhike in order to get to whichever part of the EU you want to go to). The problem is that also not many people come to Bulgaria. Although this might sound as an insult I’d like to point out that compared to Eastern and South Eastern people most Western and North Europeans don’t know anything at all about the other side of the continent except from lame gossip from the washed up press. The problem with not knowing the world around you is that it causes fear and a constant stagnation of the mind. Fear is mostly coming from the unknown and the other thing…well…it’s like living in an incubator – few (decent) things in and out hence the fact that many Bulgarians might seem hostile to foreigners at first. But once you gain their trust you will feel even better than back at home 🙂 So I’d like to see more foreigners come to our beautiful country but also more Bulgarians learn about the nations in this wild and big, big world.

  35. Hilarious, the author was writing in a college/frat type of mentality with a very superficial look at women from a particular country. In the most basic of thinking, it wasn’t meant to be deep and it was written in a pretty stereotypical/biased thought process. Almost like a quick cheat sheet for the North American/USA guys on women in Bulgaria from his perspective. It wasn’t written for anyone other than this audience.

    All this commentary written with bad English grammar to teach him about the DNA and social dynamics of this area is hilarious and says a lot about(with a simple mindset) why there is so much conflict in this region. If a stupid article like he wrote,can elicit this kind of response, then what about real issues. You think you’re gonna get through to him??

    Take a deep breath and relax.

    All the comments and bad english aside (I don’t speak another language so I do appreciate anyone who can speak more than one and get the message across), I did learn a lot more about Bulgaria & Bulgarian women/men than I was looking for and do thank you for your insight. I’ve meet a Bulgarian women in my country through a dating site and in our exchanges I could sense she was of Eastern European descent with the way she came across in her messages. I was married to a Russian girl from St Petersburg and there were indications from the Bulgarian girls messages that reminded me of my ex-wife’s way of thinking. Kind of funny I didn’t find out until after many messages later that she was from Bulgaria and the first ever Bulgarian that I’ve ever knowingly met, but there is a relationship even though they were both born miles apart. Hair colour, DNA, tall, short, hairy lips, crossed eyed, all that aside. The mentality of two of them is very similar and I would suspect a lot of the Eastern block regions (if allow me to call it that) mentality, up and down, is similar. Reason????Government & Religion, full stop.

    Well anyways I digress. So far the Bulgarian lady is cool, smart, pretty and has a sense of humour that I like. If things go well I guess I’ll get to know a lot more about your Bulgaria.

    Peace
    JS

    • The ONLY one who actually got it!The tone and the first impressions of Bulgaria and the Bulgarian women.Why are so many people offended of Maverick’s personal experience when visiting the small and truly not that significant country in Europe called Bulgaria?!How can you expect a tourist from far away to know your history,DNA and etc. when YOU obviously yourselves are sooo confused and argue among each other CONSTANTLY?!!Be happy that foreigners spend time, money and effort to visit you at all for whatever reasons they might have!

      Peace!

  36. The culture an traditions are related to the religion, that also influences the behavior of people. Bulgarians around Danube river accepted Christianity around 9 century, and Bulgarians around Volga river accepted Islam around 10 century, so the Bulgarian girls behave differently in different regions, as differently would they behave living in another part of the world.

    According to the genetics bulgarians are not slavic, turkic, nor trakians people, but their genetic roots originate from number ot ancient iranian tribes (some of them with light hair and eyes) that spread across Europe, known as “huns”, Just after the death ot their leader known as Attila the Hun the writers begun addressing the huns as “bulgarians”. No, the huns did not arrived from Asia, they are a native europeans stock. 🙂

    Profiling Bulgarian girls – it is hard to say, but definitely they are conservative and quite strong willed, often like to take over the relationship, witch preferably should lead to marriage. Bulgaria was occupied by Russia at the end of 2WW and was under communist rule as the rest of the eastern Europe, place where the religion and old traditions were suppressed and even punished, same as any contact with the “other part of the world”, that is why people in Eastern Europe for a foreigner may look and behave alike.

    To add to the “analysis” of the girls, Bulgaria men have a saying: Women are all snakes, it depends on someone’s luck to find the non poisonous one… even for dating… watch out guys! 🙂

  37. Please realize that posting such an opinion about a country and it’s women you obviously know NOTHING about does not make the region, or its people look bad, poor, or whatever else you attempted to do in your opening paragraphs, but it makes people pity people like you. You are not the first one who is completely foreign to Bulgaria as Bulgaria is to you, and you won’t be the last. But I sure hope your angle changes and becomes more objective and more real; reflect the truth and not the narrow minded opinion you obviously have. This made me sick, and I can’t dare say that I would ever read another thing posted by someone who is so deprived if cultural experience.

  38. Maverick: “As a native Russian speaker” – I read that in your “Serbian girls profiling”, you are loaded my friend with pan-Slavic propaganda and your opinion is politically biased. You’ll glorify the girls from the Russia’s puppet states like Serbia, and after the incident with Putin’s plain over Turkey I’d guess what a bul**** you’ll wright about Turkish girls. By the way, who pays for your traveling/dating experiences?

    • Wow… And you are definitely “not” politically biased and loaded.

      You are one beautiful and shining example of absolute objectivity. Which doesn’t exist, so feel free to draw all the conclusions you want.

  39. Hi,

    I read your article and in my opinion as someone that just visited the country for a short period of time you were able to get a good feel of one type of local girl. As an example how they react to strangers approaching them in English etc. However my only note is that you probably didn`t have the chance to see all layers of Bulgarians. If you ever get back to Sofia, try walking around Borisova Gradina on a weekend afternoon- that`s where you`ll meet the so called “hipster chicks”. They are not missing in the country, they just never hang out in shopping malls or in coffee shops. Also they are more open minded to strangers and most of them have been in USA on Work and Travel programs etc. So may be you`ll see a different crowd of people there 🙂 Also you might of met Bulgarians in USA, there are many of us here, biggest population is in Chicago, many restaurants etc. We just mix very well with the crowd around us. In fact I`ve been told by other Bulgarians here that if I do not say a word in English (so you don`t hear my accent) you`d think I am an American. 🙂 Plus 85% of the Americans I meet daily think I am Russian because of my accent and because most people do not know where Bulgaria is. 🙂 That does not upset me though, I gladly give them a history and geography lesson and they are usually very excited to learn something new. Anyways, good luck in your travels and it is great that you get to visit different cultures and write your impressions. Good luck and Happy Holidays !

  40. I am also a Bulgarian in USA and I came here around 5 so I have no accent and most people think I’m Mexican because of my tan skin or Russian. They mostly think I’m Russian when they first hear me talk in Bulgarian. I’ve been to both places and I don’t think people in Bulgaria wear dark clothes. They wear clothes that are similar to American but the clothes are maybe a year or two outdated than the clothes in America.

  41. Yeah OK Bulgarian women are ugly fat gypsies a lot bellow to beautiful Greek girls ask Bulgarian guys like Mikhail Tactic I know what Bulgarian men think about them and what about us classless uneducated and ugly are also and serbocroatian women

  42. What about Grigor Dimitrov?

  43. Maverick, you are so mistaken….poor man. I am not sure whether you understand how ignorant you are!!! But you have the confidence to even write a blog on national stereotypes?! Great!!! Not surprised Donald Trump has so much support. He must be your role model 🙂

    Dear, traveler, in Bulgaria you should only visit resorts with foreigners such as the Black Sea Cost, there is a lot of whore parties because there are no Bulgarian women there. If you wanted to see something lighter, you should probably have visited the Bulgarian minority in Bolgrad, Ukraine, I suggest they migrated there when there were probably less Romani people. All Bulgarian women are pieces, the difference is that they are different pieces of shid. Now, they are not even as Bulgarian as before, all they share a recent descend from the Romani population from South India, if you did not know Bulgaria is the country with highest ratio of Gypsies in the world, most of them have Gypsy ancestry, or at least this is not visible for some mulatto Bulgarian-Romani mixes but is about to happen on future generations. If you doubt it, watch an Indian or a Roma-Turkish movie and you will fit the photos you have shown with lookalikes. Having one of the worst natural growing rates, Bulgaria is the best candidate of becoming their country or at least to fast grow the rate of the mulattos. And all these class women are unaccessable and arrogant..they require longterm seducings and relationships and boyfriends, so sad I almost cry that I live in such a coutnry. My cuckold dream is to see all Bulgarian women done by the bashibouzuks, Turks and Greeks as once before, but I am happy of what they are currently, beautiful, condemning, extrememly light with so affecting features, when I imagine I can’t even jerk, but I’d rather do it instead of fucking them. As for kissing, I’d rather kiss something that looks and smells more normal compared to other countries. In Bulgaria I only like the resorts because of the foreigners. Once I had to go from a Russian to a Bulgarian university and I realized that it is not an imagination, the country of Romani people and mixes is a fact. In Sofia the situation is the darkest, you can not even see a naturally light blonde teenager, but there are some towns where such people survive. Better don’t go to Sofia, it is the ugliest town I have ever visited and I will stop living there as soon as I can. Sofia is maybe the place of a great migration of peoples of hidden mixed origin, but if you asked them they are even Bulgarian nationalists.

  45. It is visible Bulgarians are very aggressive to different opinions.
    This is what caused them a lot of troubles in the past

  46. My Dear Pelgar etc.etc. or which ever you call yourself

    I should not award you with my attention but somehow you provoked my interest with your frivolous comments-how silly?!

    Did they cut you off?Oh yes you got me right, the Bulgarian women the ones you called arrogant and smelly?? You truly make me laugh simply because I know people like you-low self confidence, kicked out of any society, blaming everything and everyone for his own miserable state, haters…..

    Well mate, resorts are full with “remarkable” people just like you,alcoholics and any down side genius escaped from their home land just to get pissed and “high as a kite”, no wonder you appreciate that kind of creatures

    Furthermore my dear traveller, after you spent so much time and got “close” to the local people and history I shall be honored if you can find a time to discuss and debate that with me in order to verify the words of yours stated above..?

    I am actually trying to evaluate your brain potential and did not find much in it. There is a common belief that you should not underestimate the power of stupid people combined in a group, I do strongly believe you far outnumbered them…

    Good luck dude in finding beautiful girl, I see no hope though

    p.s I will be next month in Sofia, feel free to get in touch with me

  47. I am so surprised that many people respond to the opinion of a moron with hairs on his back…

  48. Um…it really depends on their zodical sighn. There are so many beautifull women out there, and bulgarian ones are in the game for sure.
    P.S. You should visit museums and historical spots as well.

  49. Soooo I am Afghan/Canadian and I love to travel. I have seen most of Europe and Bulgaria was on my list of places to visit right after Burgess, Belgium.
    I guess I should NOT come to Bulgaria considering all these comments haha

  50. I’m true blue English at 62 I visited Bulgaria for the first time last year and love it so much I bought a house there. Visited 6 times so far and make a point of interacting with the natives. The article is not well informed imho, around 10% of the population are Rome gypsy or Turkish and in my view the Roma girls are prettier. Maybe a lot of the olive skinned can be attributed to the 300 days a year sunshine. Yep Sofia can seem a bit grim but Veliko Tarnovo is a beautiful city and you will see women dressed as if going to a dinner date as they walk about window shopping, colourful clothes of western influence.

  51. As a Bulgarian, who has traveled to most Western-European countries, I can safely say that Bulgarians tend to be more patriotic than people from England, Denmark, the Netherlands and so on. But we do hate the system here. Therefore, we have a popular saying “hate the country, love the Homeland” (мрази държавата, обичай Родината).

    One more thing – a certain type of girls only wears black boots, leather jackets and so on. And you can tell what type of music they listen to. But Bulgarian girls are not that sexually conservative. On the contrary, with the exception of England (but who wants to sleep with English girls anyway?), they are probably one of the most sexually liberal girls in the EU.

  52. It’s sad how this guy was offering his harmless observations and he’s been slammed so thoroughly for it. He never stated his opinions were fact. He merely stated these were his opinions and people are free to disagree with them entirely. But this bitchiness over one guy’s harmless opinion says so much about Bulgarians’ insecurities and inability to take things easy. It says more negative things about Bulgarians than I originally expected.

  53. As a Bulgarian I would say that most of the bulgarians who comment here are sick.

  54. Well, it is normal that you couldn’t hit a women on the street during your short stay in Bulgaria – our educational system is pretty good and we develop some intellect from an early age. 😉
    About the colour of the hair – it’s true that there are many Bulgarians with dark hair, but I’d say that in the Eastern part of the country, where I come from, our hair is mostly dark to light brown.

    I think you’d enrich yourself much more if you visit some folklore festival or a national landmark -Bulgaria is a country rich in a cultural and a historical way – take for example the Bulgarian Rose Festival in the beginning of June or some of the hundreds sacred places of the Thraces – the people who have dwelt our lands before us.

    Did you now that in Varna Necropolis, at the seacost, has been found the world’s oldest golden artifact- at more than 6000 years – and that the the people on our lands were the first to work with and process gold worldwide, and to create fine jewellery ? Or, that our young mathematicians are always amongst the first on the world’s most famous and difficult mathematical competitions? Or, that a Bulgarian has constructed the first passager airplane in the world (Assen Yordanov) – and many more other inventions? You cannot understand the women of Bulgaria if you don’t know all this before.

  55. Man, educate yourself.. do not depend on stereotyping about something you have never heard about.. spend more time in a particular place.. and I am sure you will stop writing such stupid and misleading articles. I just wasted 10 minutes of my life reading your bullshit article as well as other 10 reviewing the comments below cause I got extremely crazy.

  56. I generally find Bulgarian woman nice!,but very rude and obstinated,thay don’t know how to listen or be reflexive!,and gold digger,they just think how to get material things from man and that’s soo disgusting!,for the rest they are good people!,got a child with one,now are separated and i feel bad for my kid,but soo damn good for my mental health!,that was out ofthis world!,the unique place to go out was the store!,shame

  57. Hello Maverick, i’m Bulgarian woman. This post put all Bulgarian women under one denominator, which would be funny if it was not offensive.

  58. http://www.555.bg/obiava/+359894662133-изучи-анатомията-на-тялото-ми/d3mt?b

    Maverick, this girl is very good-looking and very easy, if you try her you will change your opinion for hard to flirt with dark subjects. Indeed is not enough for some that they are not looking good, but they are even acting as unavailavble.

    One thing I forgot. This one was even better in my experience! Women go lesbian on her,

    Slav brotherhood rulz!

  60. Dear Maverick,
    Sofia is undisputably the worst Europan capital, and never will be anything else, I also agree, that’s not hard to see. Recently it was recorded to have the most pooloted air in the EU. But I don’t agree with your assumption “dark, i.e. not Slavic, so Balkan, Greek and Turkish”. The title of this post is misleading. Why dark is assumed as Balkan and not Gypsy? I am not a nationalist and don’t hate Gypsies, but this is not true. Why is Balkan dark? The climate does not really permit local people to be brown-skinned in these coordinates, unless they tan, see the Albanians for example, it is widely popular that they are dark, but they are actually light-skinned.

    Why have you put on the lead a picture of pictures with several obvious Romani Gypsies? Nina Dobrev’s middle of fingers is brown due to her Gypsy descent. Why you make such bold statements? Did you know Bulgaria is the country with world’s highest percentage of Gypsies and mixed Gypsies with non Gypsies? You can walk down the street and see only Gypsy-admixed people. I know one friend whose mother and father are Gypsy, but in the social media he is the most active Bulgarian nationalist and irredintist who posts maps of Great Bulgaria, so is my Bulgarian cousin whose one parent is Gypsy, he is almost a skinhead and knocks out what he calls “dirty Gypsies”. Such people find excuse to stop identifying as Gypsy, but they know they are.

    The implying that Indian people are actually Balkan is wrong, while they are Indian and that the stereotype of Balkanians like Bulgarians and Albanians is dark, which is not true and is present only on minimal frequency in them. I heard such ignorant rumors that Albanians are dark like Greeks, but I watched Euro 2016 and haven’t seen a single footballer with a slightly dark skin and there were more blonds among them than even your fellow Ukrainian team, Maverick, which I didn’t expect. So was the Bulgarian team of 1994, now a big part are definitely Gypsy. The Albanian and Croatian team was with more blonds than even the Swedish, so I don’t get how you imply Balkan as dark? Since the dark Albanians are an occasion, maybe the darkness in Greeks and Turks is rather Anatolian and Cretan than Balkan? Gypsies from Bulgaria you pictured above should not be used as evidence for such false implication. The propaganda for darkness goes well with arbitrary fake maps created by Italians, who imply that Spain and Italy are more frequently blond haired and light eyed than Bulgaria, Serbia and even Romania. They are only according to their imagination, not to any statistics. Have you seen these maps before creating this post and coming to Bulgaria? I am sure this is the reason you were deceived and believed random Gypsies and Bulgarians to be Balkan and having the same origin and appearance. Does my suggestion seems true to you?

    See pictures of Bulgarian women who are not Gypsies, which aren’t the pictures of the Gypsies above, see:

  61. It kinda feels like you’re just spitting out terrible things about us. You keep on going on and on about how poor we are. And where the hell did you see a girl with jet black hair? I’ve been living here all my life and if I see one it’s dyed black. In Bulgaria being a brunette is most common. The women not knowing English because we’re poor thing is stupid. I’ve been a fluent English speaker since I was 11. Bulgarian ladies are some of the most beautiful in Europe and they all have great bodies the sad part is that they’re personalities are bad as they’re usually very basic and are gold diggers. Also a lot of girls in Bulgaria don’t wear black leather jackets or don’t dress all in black. It’s like you’ve not looked at a Bulgarian woman before. I personally am not fond of my country but you’re making it seem worse than it is.

  62. I arrived on this blog from the article about “What makes a woman feminine” and I kinda agree to his point of view and enjoyed reading Maverick’s relaxed style of writing articles about sex-dating women around the world. I find it that he writes in an objective and mature manner adding his personal experience to sustain his view of the typical woman in a particular country.
    You should read his articles from the point of view of a superficial guy who travels the streets looking for one-night stands, not looking to meet a long term partner. He told us clearly that this is not a DNA study or not even a sociological one, but more of a relaxed blog about the way he sees the world through his eyes. You may not agree with him … that’s OK.
    It is true that the general impression about Sofia and about Bulgarian woman it is not the best of his articles on the blog and the fact that he was refused like in no other country … but again, it is his personal experience.
    I imagine that if the article would have been written by another Balkanik-born person, you would argue that he was biased.

    I am Romanian guy, who traveled to Bulgaria at least two times per year in the last 10 years, so I have also made myself an image of the typical Bulgarian woman look and feel.
    Most of the times when I’m with my friends on the beaches in North-Greece or in Halkidiki, where you meet a lot of Greeks, Bulgarians, Romanians and Serbians in the same place, I can mostly recognize from the distance (without hearing a word) a Bulgarian woman only from the look and feel, with only small errors. Instead I have made many more errors recognizing Romanian, Greek or Serbian women. Maybe because Bulgarian women have a more omogen look and feel, I’m refering to the way they arrange their hair and the way they dress and I’m not refering to the natural features who are very similar to their neighbouring countries.
    I want to add that probably many European men are doing the same stereotype exercise with Russian women especially in Turkey resorts, where you can meet big cohords of Russian population.
    Also, in Bucharest when we boys go out for a beer, we are making similar exercises about the historical regions of Romania where a girl might be born, only from her look and feel. So, it seems that we men are experts in stereotyping girls :-)))

    In the end I want to say that I agree with Maverick’s description of the typical Bulgarian woman for the look and feel. I didn’t had any interaction with Bulgarian women from a sentimental point of view because I’m married ;-)- so I cannot argue on that point.

  63. To author: just for you to know, there is no cyrillic used in Czech Republic. What a lack of knowledge Silicone Valley guy…

  64. This post is – WTF ! So many non sins and wrong information in it.

  65. Maverick, I agree with the men’s and women’s posts here about your zero knowledge of Bulgarian women.You say you’re not American, okay whatever.I run across American and British men ocassionally here in Sofia.Once they know I’m an American the questionnaire begins.Lets see hum what is their first question? WHERE CAN I GET LAID? Wow the women are hot.I’M SURE YOU’VE BANGED MANY THEY ASK? I retired in Bulgaria 10 years ago.After their questions I use my hand like I’m a deaf mute,and walk away. I didn’t retire half way around the world to be a foreigners sex guide.I avoid expats like the plague, truth be known.Firstly,I didn’t retire in Bulgaria to bed women,nor did I retire here to disrespect Bulgaria either.I’ve never thought the U S had culture at all and I never indulged in the BS in the U S either, even though I lived there from birth.I’ve always despised the way the U S dogged people from around the world.No I don’t have a GF but I’ve never been gay either,period.Bulgaria is far from a poor country, because Bulgarians are the genuine article,hands down as I see it.Before I decided to retire in Bulgaria I spent 6 months here,not to pass judgement,but instead to learn a new culture.I never approach anyone on the street nor when having coffee lunch or an occasional beer.It’s not because I think I’m better and I’m not.Its purely because I understand that’s not the proper way to behave.Respect matters in my world always will.On a final note you’re damn lucky her BF didn’t show up when you were testing the waters, because without a doubt he would’ve beaten you to a pulp without any remourse.I was sitting at a bar last year having a beer outside on the patio.A Brit was testing the waters with a woman on the street obviously.That Bulgarian man pummeled him.He walked across the street passing the outdoor patio.I said beers on me.I bought him a beer and thanked him. John
