The Most Important Traits of Romanian Men
Compared to Swedish men, you won’t find so much diversity in Romanian men.
The thing is that not all handsome Romanian guys are the same, but he described traits can be found in most Romanian guys and their appearance will leave you breathless.
So, let see what Romanian guys are like.
1. Physical Appearance
When it comes to their physical appearance, Romanians are one of the hottest Balkan nations.
You probably won’t be able to take your eyes off of them!
Their appearance could vary based on their ancestors.
For example, if the Romanian guy has German roots, he will most likely be blond with the most beautiful blue eyes.
Some of the handsome Romanian men have Russian roots, but they aren’t as tall as Russians and have a little bit darker hair. Luckily, they have inherited those dreamy bright eyes.
If you read an article about Russian men, you can easily spot the resemblance!
On the other hand, many Romanian men have Greek or Turkish ancestors!
If you are into dark hair and dark eyes, you will most likely be attracted to these sexy Romanian men.
Well, I know I was!
They are all rocking the thick beards and those deep brown eyes can make anyone fall in love with them.
The average Romanian male is about 5’7” tall and even though they aren’t the tallest men on Earth, their bodies are well sculpted.
We all like wide shoulders, strong arms, and developed muscles, and typical Romanian guys look just like that!
You can find a hot guy on every corner!
When it comes to their style, hot Romanian guys like to keep it simple.
You won’t stumble upon anything extravagant and most of them are dressing pretty casual.
Well, they dress casually when they are not wearing their traditional folk costumes.
These costumes are colorful, full of details and don’t resemble anything you’ve seen before.
They wear them only on special occasions.
If you tie the knot with a Romanian guy, he will most likely show up on the wedding day in his folk costume.
Many foreign people do find these costumes amusing and tourists love seeing Romanian people in their traditional wardrobe.
On a daily bases, sexy Romanian guys can be seen wearing everything from sneakers and sweatpants to suits, and one brand they all like is Bigotti.
Additional Rating – The Tinder 1000 Swipe Rating

This is how it works.

Character Traits of Romanian Men
More important than physical appearance is definitely someone’s personality.
If you were wondering what are Romanian men like, here is all of the information!
Most importantly, you will learn what are Romanian men like in relationships and break down some of the Romanian men stereotypes.
1. Gentlemen rating
Romanian boyfriend will be the almost perfect boyfriend!
If you are looking for an old-fashioned gentleman, then start dating a Romanian man.
They will do anything to sweep you off your feet and leave a good first impression.
Opening doors, constantly giving you compliments, buying flowers, jewelry and paying the bill are the things you can expect when dating Romanian men.
They are making sure you feel like their queen and only girl in the world.
However, they are sometimes stuck to traditional gender roles.
If you are a female that is trying to build her career, say goodbye to the second date.
Single Romanian men are usually looking for stay-at-home moms, and wives that will do all of the housework without concentrating too much on their career.
Because they do whatever they can to make you feel like a queen, they want to be treated like kings at home and Romanian men in bed expect the same – be ready to work in the bedroom!
Of course, because of their generosity, you don’t have to worry about being the only one putting in the effort – Romanian guys in bed love to show off so you can expect a really good time.
One thing that is common for all Romanian men is their sense of humor. I remember laughing so hard on my first date.
And other dates didn’t disappoint!
They have a unique sense of humor, love to joke around and because of that, they are easy to talk to!
Some Romanian men aren’t as generous and sometimes act unpleasantly, but it is unlikely to stumble upon them.
Enjoy being treated like a queen you are!
Romanian guys will surprise you with their integrity!
All of them are very aware of where they come from, what they have and strong traditional values are important to them!
Typical Romanian guys will make sure their family is secured and there isn’t a thing they won’t do for their closest friends.
It is a heart-warm nation that will cause you to melt!
There is no sugar coating in Romania. All of the guys are quite straightforward and will tell you like it is.
Even if you don’t want to hear it…
They are honest about their lives, about what they want out of life and their partner.
If you like privacy, you can’t forget about it!
Because they are so open, they believe everyone else is as well and you might be asked some pretty uncomfortable questions.
But, in the end, you will have an honest boyfriend and won’t have to second guess anything.
I could give you numerous Romanian guy dating tips, but this one is the most important – don’t even think about cheating or having an open relationship!
I already talked about their traditional values and the importance of having a family.
Of course, because of that, you would never expect them to cheat on you.
Cheating is rare and they would rather break up with you and hook up with another girl ten minutes later then lie and cheat.
Family is their top priority and they usually won’t do anything to jeopardize its stability.
Romanian men in bed want to be satisfied and once you accomplish that, you will have the most loyal man by your side!
5. How protective are they?
Romanian guys will do anything to protect you!
Sometimes, you might even feel like they are overprotective.
Every time you leave the house, they will want to know where are you going and who are you meeting.
To be honest, all of their attention is sweet, but sometimes smothering.
Dating a Romanian guy will make you feel secure and protected. On the other hand, you will most likely have to say goodbye to your privacy and alone time.
6. Are they resourceful?
I had to give them a lower grade!
I mean, without a woman by their side, they wouldn’t be able to survive!
Boiling water or cooking an egg is like rocket science to them!
Forget about those romantic dinners when a man decides to prepare a delicious meal for the two of you.
If he is inviting you to dinner at his house, you will probably be eating takeout food.
Also, don’t expect them to do any of the housework except occasional vacuuming.
However, when it comes to money, they can be resourceful. You won’t be expected to earn a big paycheck and completing the housework is just enough.
Remember, they love traditional gender roles!
Because they love to joke around, you might feel like they are still stuck in their early twenties.
Even though their jokes are sometimes immature, they are not.
Most guys take their jobs and relationships quite serious and put in an enormous amount of work in both.
They love to succeed at their jobs and share their experiences with partner or family.
Also, due to their honesty, Romanian guys don’t have a problem will telling you how they feel and want to talk out all of the problems.
Romanian guys are well aware of their looks and love to show off.
They are sometimes even overly confident.
If they work out regularly, they will show off their bodies.
Of course, no matter how confident they are, they still want to be complimented.
Just one compliment can significantly cheer them up!
So on the first date, make sure to mention his hair or style and he will immediately fall in love with you!
9. Are they friendly or reserved?
If I had to use one word to describe Romanian people, I would say they are friendly.
A total stranger will help you with your bags, easily approach you and start talking to you like you are an old friend.
All of the men are quite open and you can ask them whatever you want.
Good time with a Romanian guy is guaranteed!
Sometimes, they are a bit too friendly – most of the guys remain friends with their exes.
If you are a jealous woman, you probably don’t want your hot boyfriend getting coffee or chatting with his past girlfriend.
Well, even if you are not jealous, this is a bit strange.
The overall score does not give a perfect account of these men considering that they are some of the most sought after in Europe.
Descendants of warriors and noblemen, these Romanian men are quite classy and can be very generous.
Of course, everyone knows they are quite protective of their loved ones and that is a big plus.

You are probably wondering how to meet a Romanian guy.
If you are among American women looking for Romanian men, there are plenty of websites with single Romanian guys.
Also, there are other places to meet Romanian men and the best way to do it is in person.
Of course, this means traveling to Romania and exploring their bars and clubs.
They love to go out and party, so make sure to explore their nightlife.
With a few of my Romanian men dating tips, you will easily meet Romanian guys and steal their hearts both online and in person.
As mentioned, Romanian men are open and traditional, so they will usually take the first step.
However, they like daring and brave women who feel confident enough to approach them.
If you are in the club, just pick a guy and start dancing with him. Once you show some initiative, he will do the rest. Expect a lot of drinking and dancing until dawn!
This can be applied to online dating as well. Don’t wait for him to message you first.
If you spot a guy you like, send him a message and he will positively response.
One of the most popular Romanian dating sites is dating.com. With this website, you can easily try out international dating.
It is a website for both casual hook-ups and serious dating, so you will find both!
The entire sign up process is super easy and once you’ve created your account you can start exploring different profiles.
Thanks to the great search profiles, finding Romanian guys should be difficult.
To be able to see someone’s profile entirely, you will need to first start the conversation and get their response.
Once you get access to the full profile, all of their private and public photos will be unlocked as well as their interests – this will reveal to you what are Romanian guys like.
There are stories and live broadcasts on which you can comment. If you are a bit shy, by commenting on their live video, you are still creating a connection and you will certainly catch their eye.
Also, you don’t have to worry about fake profiles! The site instantly deletes all of the false profiles and only the authentic ones are kept.
Many options are free and exploring profiles and viewing pictures won’t cost you a dime.
However, to unlock more options, you will have to purchase credits and the price is based on the number of credits you buy.
Pros and Cons of Dating a Romanian man
When it comes to international dating, each nation has pros and cons.
Here are all of the benefits and disadvantages of Romanian dating culture.
1. An entirely different culture
You would know what to expect from an England dating culture. For example, the same is with France or German people and all of the Scandinavian men are similar.
Romania is something entirely new.
It is a big country but the people are friendly and out-going. They love foreign people and most of all love to entertain them.
Your Romanian men will explore every part of the city with you, show you the best places for going out, eating and shopping.
2. A lot of laughter
Have I mentioned how much I laughed on my first date with a Romanian guy?
At the end of the date, my stomach hurt from laughing. Which is much better than going to the gym and doing abs-workouts.
They are funny guys, each with a unique and hilarious story and love to see a woman laugh at their jokes.
Forget about boring dates with these guys!
3. Family values
If you are looking to settle down, the Romanian guy is a perfect choice!
All of their relationships are long-lasting and they usually date the girls that might be their future wives.
Because of their family values, you will quickly meet all of their family members. If they accept you, your relationship will certainly last!
1. Language barrier
Not many Romanian guys speak numerous foreign languages.
Besides Romanian, English is one of the most common languages.
Unfortunately, some guys struggle even with English and the only language they do speak is the native.
Lucky for you, Romanian language sounds beautiful, so even if you don’t understand a single word, it is still melodic.
2. Overprotective and jealous
Dating Romanian guys is sometimes exhausting.
Your Romanian boyfriend will demand to know where you are at each moment.
Also, they easily get jealous and won’t like if you are surrounded by male friends. I’m not saying they will fight them (that is just one of the ridiculous Romanian guy stereotypes), but spending too much time with them might cause some trouble in your relationship.
On the other hand, no matter how jealous they get, you shouldn’t get jealous.
This is kind of a double standard and it is up to you to accept it or find another guy.
3. Easily intimidated
It’s like they are scared of successful women.
I know that they are only nurturing their traditional values, but someone should teach them more about gender equality.
Keep in mind that they are not only intimidated by women. They don’t hang around with people that earn more or are more successful.
On the first date, you should talk about your achievement too much, but ask them about theirs so they feel more confident and welcoming towards you and your accomplishments.
How to Win the Heart of a Romanian Man
They that you know how to meet Romanian men and what are Romanian guys like in relationships, here are all of the tips you need to keep him by your side!

With cooking, you can never go wrong.
Romanian men love to eat and you can prepare your favorite dish or maybe something popular from your country.
They will also be amazed if you prepare a traditional Romanian recipe – cabbage rolls, beef tripe soup and lamb drop are quite tasty!
2. Invite him to meet your friends
One of the best ways to show him you are serious about the relationship is by introducing him to your friends.
In this way, you are making feel welcomed into your life.
Of course, after meeting your friends, he will want to meet your family as well and you should arrange that as soon as possible.
3. Talk about family
Romanian guys want someone with the same traditional and family values.
The talks about family and children won’t frighten them. On the contrary, they love them!
Even if your culture is different, they will make sure you nurture it and they want to know some of the traditions that your family has.
Also, feel free to mention future plans or the number of children.
4. Learn Romanian

Of course, you won’t be coherent at first, but they will still find it charming.
