Dating European women, especially dating eastern European women, is one of the main trends that have taken over the online dating scene in most western countries especially within the last half of the last decade. In fact, there is even a new term that has coined with specific reference to online European dates. Mail order brides is the term used to refer to eastern European brides met online and brought back to the home country of the bridegroom for marriage. Even though this term may not be entirely accurate and could create misconceptions, the fact that it was coined out of the intermarriage of people from western and east European countries implies that such intermarriages are real and actually do happen. There are many factors driving this trend and it would be impractical to try and look into all these factors in this piece but suffice it to say that each and every one has his own unique reasons for going through the process.
