is probably best to have at least some contacts made in advance
of your first visit. By doing so, you will not be meeting a stranger
and you will have broken the ice before you land at Chisinau airport.
There are some international
dating sites that have a number of female clients in Moldova but
most such businesses do not have many female clients in the country
that is partly a hangover from the days when it was difficult
to travel to Moldova, but also because the population of the country
is only 2.7 million, as compared to almost 150 million in Russia
so the number of available women is much lower than other countries
well known to men seeking a foreign bride.
Brides and Lovers
dating sites is probably better than even Moldovan dating
sites because BridesandLovers.com has many Moldovan women specifically
looking for marriage to a foreign man, so they are a good starting
point for serious men looking for a Moldovan bride. Possibly the
biggest advantage of going down this route is that the women you
meet on the site will already be comfortable with the idea of
meeting a foreigner and be willing to consider marriage to the
Around In Moldova
Most parts of Moldova
do not get many English-speaking visitors, so outside of the capital
city Chisinau, not much English is spoken. In Chisinau, it is
much easier to find people who speak English either socially or
in shops, bars, taxis, restaurants etc. If you want to visit other
parts of the country, and you should, it is not too expensive
to hire an English-speaking person complete with driver to act
as driver and guide. For more information about getting around

Of course, if you
are meeting with women then you may well want to venture out with
them, although you might still need to arrange transport. There
are several car hire companies, including the international majors
such as Europcar or Sixt. You can hire a car, with a local, English
speaking driver, for around €100 per day, with discounts
for longer periods using local companies. This might be an efficient,
pleasant and safe way to handle transport, particularly if the
women you meet do not drive.
Unlike the United
States or UK, car ownership is not seen as being an essential
and locals make heavy use of public transport and taxis. Most
of the women you meet are unlikely to have a car, or even know
how to drive.
Moldova does not
have many hotels of high standard but international chains such
as Radisson have properties in Chisinau. In general, decent hotels
are not cheap and good hotel accommodation is hard to find outside
of the capital. Many people prefer to stay in apartments because
they can offer good prices, great accommodation and are more discreet
than hotels. Booking.com and Airbnb.com both have apartments on
offer throughout the country with a 7-night stay costing from
less than €150 to top-end penthouse type apartments from
around €500 for a week.
In other cities accommodation tends to be
a little more basic, not the same amenities as you might be used
to, but still comfortable, safe and clean.
If you choose to
stay in an apartment, try to get a place with two bedrooms, both
you and any visitors will almost certainly feel more comfortable
with that arrangement and the cost of doing so is not high.
Many of the women you will see in Moldova
will be very attractive. If you like the elegance and looks of
Italian women then you will think that you have died and gone
to heaven when you walk down Stefan Cel Mare, the main avenue
in the centre of Moldova. You will see many tall, slender, well
dressed women. When you go to the smaller towns and cities you
will likewise be similarly impressed. Women in Moldova tend to
try to look as good as they can, and obesity is not the same disease
as so commonly seen in other countries in the English-speaking
world. However, people in Moldova are quite realistic in their
expectations and so you should be – look for a woman who
is likely to be a good match for you rather than arm candy to
make your friends jealous.
If you are happy to spend lots of money in
bars and clubs you will find no shortage of very attractive young
women happy to help you spend, spend, spend, but if you are serious
about finding a good wife and life partner you will be best served
if you look for an attractive woman who is relatively close to
your own age and who is at a similar stage of life.
Bear in mind that many women who are single will be divorced and
have children of their own. Those women who have not had kids
will still be wanting to create a family of her own with the man
in her life so make sure of your own opinions in respect of children.
If your views on these matters are not compatible with those of
women you meet then, no matter what the emotional attachment might
be, unless you and she agree and are comfortable with each other’s
needs, the outcome will probably not be good. Again, in part,
this goes to the pragmatism built into most people in the region.
As a matter of fact,
if you are happy to begin a relationship with a woman who has
a child then your chances of success go up considerably. In Moldovan
culture, men often will not marry a woman who already has a child.
At the same time, the divorce rate is high. That means there are
many attractive, sociable women who would make ideal Moldovan
brides who are left on the shelf. A reason that women advertise
on Moldovan dating sites is because they know that foreign guys
are more open to marriages to women with children.
on a Plane!
Most men never follow
through on their plans to find their Moldovan bride even though
there’s thousands of women on the various Moldovan dating
sites. Faint heart never won fair maid – and there are many
fair maidens waiting in Moldova. You can be the special man who
finds his special woman but unless you take that first step your
brides will remain just a fantasy!
