I first became aware of how widespread this phenomenon was when one of the so-called leaders of the “sex gurus”, Neil Strauss, wrote a book called The Game, detailing his exploits with fellow “guru” Mystery.
In this book, the author goes into great detail about all the attractive women they met in Eastern Europe and “picked up” and had sex with.
Whether you choose to date online or meet in person is totally up to you.
Many people who meet on the Internet eventually will want to meet the other person.
At the very least you are bound to make some great friends along the way and learn about Romanian history and culture.
