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...).

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.

Before eagerly grabbing a ‘bride' for yourself please pay attention to these indicators of the cultural differences between dating Bulgarian women and dating Russian women.

Bulgarian ladies have free access to Europe without a visa and can on the one hand easily find employment outside Bulgaria and on the other hand visit you without fiancée visa complications if you intend to take your relationship to the next level.

Some Russian ladies will be more inclined to seek a foreign husband for the simple reason of being less financially secure.

This does not mean that you can just walk into a Russian marriage - the Russian women are choosy when it comes to men.

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.

Bulgarian women are less likely to have professional photos; they are more likely to take a few quick snapshots with their web cam.

Many profiles of single Bulgarian girls will have low quality pictures and the girls will be much better looking in real life.

Just keep in mind that their motivation for this may not be as pure as you think and you may find yourself wifeless once she has got citizenship/money through marrying you.
