That makes it much easier to meet so called “East European brides" in person rather than pay hundreds of euros to russian marriage agencies for translations of letters and costly trips.
When you start thinking about meeting your chosen East European lady face to face, there are several distinct differences between Bulgaria and Russia.
To visit your Bulgarian bride you will not need a visa (exceptions are South Africa and a few other countries).
Most Bulgarian women on Sesile do look for a husband, but probably 30% seek just chat online and pen pals of their own age from another country and are less likely to be willing to leave their country and settle abroad.
A much larger percentage of Bulgarian women are financially independent compared to their Russian counterparts and are not driven by financially desperate conditions to search for a husband and marriage abroad.
If you are looking for a Russian wife, a Russian lady to marry, or a so called "mail order bride" then you will find that most of the Russian women are on this site for that purpose only.
