Characteristics of Romanian women
Worldwide women differentiate themselves due to some specific characteristics: their height, the color of their skin, their hair, their beauty, or their general physical traits. In Romania particularly, women are known for their beauty.
That being said, you must wonder what are the characteristics of Romanian women. Since you popped the question, you should know that women in Romania are mostly fair-skinned, dark-haired, and brown eyes. Of course, a part of the Romanian women has fair hair, natural or dyed blond, and blue or green eyes.
There is a slight difference between Romanian women from one region to another. One thing they have in common, as already mentioned, is that the majority of them are mostly fair-skinned. If you go to Transylvania, Moldova, or Bucovina you will notice that a good percentage of the women have light hair along with green or blue eyes. Moving to the south, in Muntenia and Oltenia, you will see that the tone of their hair as well as their eyes got darker.
Pay attention, not everything is about physical characteristics, right? Once you travel to Romania, you will discover how Romanians’ personality is influenced by the Romanian culture. The most distinctive trait of Romanians, including women, of course, is their ability to complain. Even if they don’t have any reason to complain, they will surely find one! Thus, it is pretty hard to keep up with a Romanian woman.
On top of that, women, particularly from Romania, love to gossip! No matter the subject, you will always find Romanian women gossiping in their group of friends, at work, or wherever they are. Be worry-free because they will never do that to their partner.
