For a Bulgarian girl things look like this: if I pay my part of the bill, that means we’re buddies.
Do you really want a one way ticket to “friends zone”?
In my personal experience empathy doesn’t last forever, so if you’re rude you will be shown the door eventually. Be aware that for the past 20 years Bulgarian men have become quite annoying trying to constantly show off.
There are girls that will easily write you off if you think you’re larger than life.
And since Bulgarian girls are quite emotional as well, you need to be prepared for some serious fighting that includes tears, shouting, insults, and God knows what more. You should remain wise and calm as much as your testosterone allows, as she will not tolerate you being rude.
In reality (and I am saying this with a heavy heart) Bulgarian women generally stand by their partners even when insulted and treated poorly. A date is a date and you know what it is – don’t be a pussy. If you are taking your lady somewhere fancy (which you should do), you need to behave as if you dance salsa.
If you are wondering whether she might feel intimidated because of that: don’t.
Emancipation doesn’t exactly have the same meaning on the Balkans as it does in most Western countries.
In other words: if you are a guy coming to Bulgaria you will have a very hard time concentrating on anything else but the girls around. And just because I’m really cool I’ll give you some insights.
Meeting her parents won’t mean you’re about to propose.
It will simply mean you’re meeting two grown-ups that will most likely love you more than your own mum and dad.
Or trust has issues with them – it’s really hard to tell which way this relationship goes.
The bottom line is that the more you talk about future plans, the less she’ll trust you.
