(On a sunny day I’d probably say Bucharest is the prettiest European city I have been too so far) Let’s be honest; it’s not every day that you read positive and inspiring things about Romania” according to Ethan Richards. The treatment of gypsies, the “Romania is a poor country” talk, “they are conservatists and racists” and the arduous “winter weather” are just some of the things I have heard before. As a black, another thing I noticed is that we are very few. You won’t find any trendy Ghanaian Restaurants, migrant professionals or African churches.This along with the “stereotypes” of Romanians in the UK – which is not that great! ( You would think that this is Paris but this is the belle view from the Palatul Parlamentului ) But let’s cut straight to the chase: Romania’s alrights – or at Bucharest is – that’s where I was based. Apart from the few Nigerian (and handful of East African) students at universities along with a very small but growing number of interracial relationships and marriages taking places – many black migrants and travellers pass through Romania instead of choosing to settle within Romania – at least according to my friends who engage in the migration sector. It doesn’t have as many Africans as Athens but it’s very different to anything I have ever experienced before in other european cities. | Strolling along the roads as the day draws near to an end – I am reminded of back home | There is a certain ‘African city’ feel to Bucharest.Someone told that there are more women here, one man for each four women, which of course can be also valid for elsewhere too.In Romania you will meet the old- fashioned gentlemen, as well as macho men with big egos.I would hazard myself by saying that Romanians are a bit macho, they usually don’t know how to treat a women, of course exceptions are accepted, they wait for the girl to do all the tough part in taking the initiative while playing the cold, indifferent bastard.
Hmmm…is a tough one, as I haven’t dated a Romanian in ages and, in any case, I can only provide a girl’s perspective.As many writers have noted, the dress code is very liberal in Romania and you’re likely to see a lot of skin on display, further causing your hormones to surge.You want to hook up with the object of your desire but sadly, your efforts come to naught, leaving you very frustrated.Now that may come as a surprise to the few who make their way to this post that I (as a black dude) am writing about Bucharest and Romania.| simple roads – great weather during the summer – friendly people | I didn’t quite know what to expect upon my arrival from London to Henri airport (for those that don’t know this is Romania’s busiest international airport). I knew I was entering a country placed closer to eastern Europe and still developing out of her recent communist past.Our single men are waiting for you right now on our absolutely free dating site, no fees, no pay ever. I was still there and still here this summer and the climate together combined with the rather welcoming nature of the people reminds me of the days I was based in Arusha in Northern Tanzania.I don’t know how is to date a Romanian girl, I have never tried, and those who dated me ….is difficult to track down and take the confession out of them, which places me in a very good position here.Well, distinctions must be made also, on age, education, background, big city, small city.And what both types of men have in common are their pride and at times their temperament.Romanian men have an excellent kind of humor, dark humor and very funny.
