A guy (exchange student): “Oh, you’re from Romania?”, with a grin on his face.
Me: “Yes.”
The guy: “That’s so cool! I have a friend who had a Romanian girlfriend and he says all Romanian girls are pretty!”
Me: “Well, that’s nice of him, but it’s not very accurate…”
The guy: “But you’re Romanian, you’re pretty, he was right!”
Me: “Thank you, still… You know what I mean. We’re just like any other country, we don’t grow models in our gardens…”
15 minutes kater, the group was being introduced to another exchange student (male). The guy I had been talking before introduced me first, with a huge smile on his face: “She’s from Romania!”


I say: “Nicoleta Luciu for president!” – and we’d have more visibility on a diplomatic level!

    Super, numai ca pe mine in Olanda m-a intrebat un olandez, cand a auzit ca sunt din romania: “So, do you have your own language there?”…. cred ca zvonul despre fetele romance nu m-a precedat :d
    alte intrebari primite au fost: do you have mobile phones in your country? si dintr-astea….o belgianca chiar mi-a zis “when we say somebody is dirty, stupid and poor, we call him a romanian”
    evident, au primit, pe rand, cate un cap in gura..:d

    IMHO, the procent of pretty girls in Romania is higher than most other countries. 🙂 It’s got to do with genetics, if you ask me. Too bad Ro is such a crappy country in many other aspects.

    You should be thankful he didn’t link Romania to the numerous videochat girls we have. 😀

    now you’re not accurate
    we aren’t JUST LIKE any oher country in this matter
    and it’s a regional thing that includes especially Romania, Hungary, Slovakia
    it’s in the genes!
    and beware, there have been more than a few cases of erasmus,socrates etc exchange students that got romanian girls(or the girls got them)
    so the word is out

    i like the other one not nicoleta

    Your post is obviously quite funny. However, I’ve experienced similar situations, guys hitting at me in clubs (in the US, Berlin) and being really convinced I’d be an easy catch just because I’m Romanian. Long live prostitution without borders, hence the fame of Romanian “girls”. And that really pissed me off. Well… maybe it’s just my feminist side speaking.

    I totally agree. I meant it to be funny, but I was obviously offended by their attitude, by that I meam it was more than the short dialogue I posted…

    Hm, when he said “all Romanian girls are pretty” he really said “all Romanian girls are easy-to-get”, and that is a general misconception. And is our fault in part.

    Your ideea (although it was a joke) about Nicoleta Luciu is a good ideea though! I vote for Nicoleta Luciu as the image-ambassador of Romania! That should do it!!

    aye, obviously cliched and milder … more like ‘lots of Ro-manian chicks are pretty, brainless and very ‘approachable’ …

    p.s i said ‘lots’ not ‘all’ … 🙂

    so far, the romanian girls i’ve met were not beautiful at all.. But i agree, on the internet, it’s possible to find some good looking ones from romania.
