Romanian girls are often viewed as mysterious, sexy, and beautiful for a very good reason - often it's true.
Romanian brides are an exotic mix of east and west - the ancient and the modern and the reason is historical.
Since ancient times Romania has been at the edge of one empire or another, close enough for some influence to rub off, but not so close that its culture is totally overwhelmed.
In ancient times the Greeks traded in the area, but it was the arrival of the Romans in 101 BC that really left a mark.
The reason that this matters to a guy pursuing Romanian brides 2000 years later is that, because of the Roman influence, Romanians use the Latin alphabet and speak a language more like French or Spanish rather than Russian.
That means that if you still remember your high school French you can probably learn to communicate with a hot Romanian girl a lot faster than a Ukrainian or Russian bride.
Following the collapse of the Roman Empire Romania spent the next 1800 years as either an invasion route or a buffer zone and this period is really when the culture that modern Romanian girls grew up in began to develop.
The Goths moved into the void left by the Romans and they were quickly followed by a the Huns and a series of other groups with occasional interference by the Byzantine Empire.
But Romanian women did not simply accept their fate.
The Romanian prince Vlad the Impaler led the savage local resistance to the Turks, but he is remembered as more of a legend than a man - the historical basis for the fictional character Count Dracula from Bram Stokers novel Dracula.
However, if you are looking for a goth vampire chick girlfriend Romania is probably not as good of a choice as West Hollywood.
Of course, the Romanian girls know all about the legend of Vlad, but the last thing they want is some nutty Western guy in black jeans babbling about it.
Sexy Romanian girls know the risks of even talking about such things.
