Ready to hear them? Take a look and let us know what you think:
Get Entrigd, a local dating app, and start connecting
We all know you have to start somewhere, so here is our suggestion. Download Entrigd, a popular dating app made by Romanians who wanted to create a safe and local place for people to connect, chat, and get together. This is the place where you can meet like-minded people, get together and go on a date if you both agree.
Why is the app trustworthy? Firstly, you’ll have to pass a few steps of verification before you’ll get accepted on the platform, which means there is a community of real, authentic, and like-minded people gathered together there. As soon as you get in, you’ll see suggestions that apply to your interests and of course, made especially for you, based on the mentioned preferences.
Impress them with your basic Romanian
We won’t say you’ll have to get Duolingo to carry on a conversation in Romania, but it’s always fun to visit a new country, with a slightly odd language, and learn some introductory terms.
Try to remember ‘Salut’, ‘Ce faci?’ or ‘Multumesc’ on your first date and we guarantee a smile from your partner.
It’s not only interesting to know some terms in a whole new language, but also fun to pronounce, so why not?
Join something that interests you
As you’re the new kid in town, the best way to meet like-minded people is to join something that interests you. It can be either a dance session, a book club, a local gym, or even the nearest pub.
Try to look online for these places or download the Entrigd app, as there will be a new feature installed, which gives you the chance to set up the type of date you’re looking for, and the app will do the planning and organizing for you.
How does it work exactly? You’ve got a match and there is a real interest in meeting up with this person. Mention your preferences - as what you’d like to do, where you’d like to meet them, what you prefer to avoid, any dietary requirements. The app will do the rest for you and when everything is ready, all you’ll have to do is go on a date.
Use the new city to try new things
Romania can be the best place to try new things, as it has a strong culture, tradition and has plenty of interesting stories to tell - starting with the worldwide famous vampire fairytales, to the real and traditional life you’ll only get to see in a few small villages across the country.
For once, you can try something totally different than what you’re used to - it can be a whole new routine, you can pick up a new hobby such as hiking, running, cycling or you can always start with new food, drinks and hunt for your new favorite pub.
