That makes it much easier to meet so called “East European brides" in person rather than pay hundreds of euros to russian marriage agencies for translations of letters and costly trips.
When you start thinking about meeting your chosen East European lady face to face, there are several distinct differences between Bulgaria and Russia.
To visit your Bulgarian bride you will not need a visa (exceptions are South Africa and a few other countries).
Singles entertainment in Bulgaria is very affordable with lots of good cheap restaurants.
Your money will go a lot further than in Western European countries or Moscow (believed to be the most expensive city on the planet by many...).
If you are looking for a Russian wife, a Russian lady to marry, or a so called "mail order bride" then you will find that most of the Russian women are on this site for that purpose only.
Bulgarian girls usually have computers at home and will reply your messages faster and tend to invite you to video chat on Skype, while the Russian females will take longer to answer and are interested in a more formal correspondence by letters.Bulgaria is much safer than Russia with much less violent crime on the streets.Russia on the other hand is very expensive and not very safe.The terms "Russian mail order brides" and "Russian mail order wives", widely used by Americans, can be quite misleading as it almost creates the impression that the ladies would agree to marry just about anybody, which is miles far from the truth.Both Bulgarian ladies and Russian brides are amazingly beautiful women but you will find that a greater percentage of Russian girls will have professional or better quality photos.Most Bulgarian women on Sesile do look for a husband, but probably 30% seek just chat online and pen pals of their own age from another country and are less likely to be willing to leave their country and settle abroad.
