‘No,’ she answered, ‘they tell me they love me sex.
This may sound strange to Romanians, but since coming here, I have found people are always positive.
A very good ice breaker, and an excellent discussion topic for your first dates.
Tell her stories from your home country, and ask for stories to help you understand Romania better.
If not your princess will lack humility and start to be tempted by the jingle in your pocket or worse someone else’s jingle.LIKE Openness: As a journalist in Romania, you call someone up, and they will talk to you. Give a Romanian a lighter and he can take it apart and reconstruct it into a generator that heats a small farm. Not like the English, who are always trying to think outside of the box. But most of the time, the box is there for a reason. DON’T LIKE Victims: In Romania, everyone suffers, but no one is guilty. Up against an ambitious Romanian, no one has a chance. But because they find it hard to work subordinate to other people, few make money and when they continue to not make money, they don’t close their business. Romanians are great at starting a business, not so good at running one. The British will show their true feelings when they are drunk and steal them back when sober. No, they imply, there must be a reason for your sickness. But if you believe the The Guardian, all Romanians are gorgeous students destined to be UN Secretary General or Apple CEO and their country is an unspoilt paradise of rolling hills, organic farmers and playful bears. They rarely say anything of much significance, but they sure are friendly. They spend all day talking to reporters and all evening talking on chat shows. DON’T LIKE Sexism: Why is it that when Romanian men walk into a crowded room, they shake all the hands of the other men, but avoid physical contact with the women? Men are judged on what they say, women on how they look – it’s pathetic. But this country need Feminism like it needs working traffic lights and free and fair elections. I have friends and family in the UK whom I have not spoken to for ten years over a small argument some drunken evening, the reason for which I cannot remember. DON’T LIKE Deadlines: Why can’t Romanians stick to deadlines? LIKE Ingenuity: Give a German a lighter, he will see a piece of plastic, a barrel, a flint and a small amount of petrol. The venture may be popular, admired and innovative, the only downside being – it probably won’t make money.However the truth is Romanians are just people are like people everywhere. At the risk of attracting contempt for being prejudiced and simplistic, here is what I like and don’t like about Romanians. But here in Romania, you can have a shout at your friends, girlfriend, boyfriend and colleagues, with a preposterous level of personal abuse and the next day, no one cares. When I edited a magazine in Romania, we set three deadlines for receiving material back from interviewees – in chronological order – the deadline we asked for, the deadline we hoped for and, finally, the deadline we expected. Give a Russian a lighter, he will see a bunch of ingredients that can help him get high. Where there is a strict framework for delivery, they work brilliantly. Nevertheless, people have an uncynical attitude to building a modern nation. A number of myths and misconceptions roam around in the society regarding Romania and Romanian women.
