When most guys want to meet girls in Eastern Europe, like in countries like Ukraine, Russia and Poland, they think two things: Online dating and Online Russian bride websites. These are actually slightly different. My Mantra is those are good, but try real one-on-one meetings when you travel, that is offline dating. Here is one idea that is an example of zigging when others are zagging. It is a bit different but I know people who have met this way and gotten married. Pareto’s principle is fully in play in the dating arena.
That is, meeting Eastern European girls though real newspaper classified ads.
It is retro dating and maybe for the older crowd, but it is effective. You get a different pool of girls than you would just signing up to a dating site. Many countryside girls without Internet. Many people trying a different approach. In Eastern Europe people still read newspapers rather than just online classifieds.
Warning about Newspaper classified for girls in Eastern Europe
- It is not that the announcements are fake. In fact in newspapers bridal searches are more real than on the web. It is that some girls in newspapers are looking for less than nobel things, including lets just say a strange type of business relationship with a fast call to a girl on her mobile phone (I do not recommend),. Another is a short-term vacation where you pay for the vacation and the girl comes along to some exotic place like Dubai with you as your special friend. This I can not recommend and distant myself from this type of girl.
- You get girls looking for marriage for a visa or Citizenship, something I do not recommend either. Guys from India or Pakistan are trying to get to Europe, the EU, so will offer girls about 10,000 dollars for a citizenship to Europe via marriage. I think this is not only not legal but dishonest and wrong. Marriage is about love.
Some dating tips in Eastern Europe
I have noticed the girls without photos tend to be hotter. Just my personal observation. Maybe hot chicks do not want to put their photo online or in the newspaper because they have to work less to get a guy. This comes under the category that beautiful girls are lazy. All they need to do in life is just show up.
I remember this accountant in my department back in Boston, who was from Estonia, tall and blond. I do not know if she was a hard worker or that smart, but golly ghee wiz, she did get promoted fast and people liked talking to her. I heard that some of the executives, even married ones were so hounding her she had to tell them forcefully to back off. The irony is, me being both American and European, never thought she was anything special. It is just American guys have nothing to look at all day as many of our girls are not as stylish and fit.
In contrast, not hot ladies need to work harder and try more extreme methods to find a mate. That is they tend to be more pleasers while beautiful girls tend to be takers and have a sense of expectations. That is why putting a photo online or in the newspaper and exposing themselves to the world is not what these girls do.
Online dating Vs. Offline dating – I think the best dating strategy is both with online and offline dating you need to mix up the interplay between various methods. But really consider barriers to entry.
When there is low barriers to entry like with online classifieds like Gumtree.com and Craigslist.org, you get many serial or repeat daters. In a physical Newspaper girls are more serious as it takes more effort to put a dating profile than online. Think about the idea of barriers to entry in an economic sense and you will understand what I mean. That is in places where it is easy to set up a shop, there tends to be zero economic profits. While in places where it is more complicated or requires money, then you get a better return.
Learn a few important words in your target language, like bride, marriage, matrimony, accompaniment, serious relationship, short-term relationship. Also learn some adjectives describing personal characteristics, in fact I would say this is a good way to learn a language. Know the subtle meanings in Eastern Europe what a sponsor is.
Get someone local to help you put your own announcement in the newspaper. Just locate the newspaper in town and they will have someone who speaks English and help you. I was looking for someone to do some art work a few years back and I still get replies. I think some of the announcements somehow go online through a portal and get picked up that way. Therefore for a small investment of a few dollars you can have a stream of replies, a whole pipeline of potential girls.
And so it is with women and dating. You have to be creative and not do what everyone else is doing. Sometimes the contrarian dating strategies work the best, therefore, try newspaper classified for girls from Europe. Ask me if you have any question about the getting a bride from Eastern Europe.
