Screen a Foreign Girl: Here’s What To Do

Travel, Women


Something has come to my attention recently in regards to screening foreign girls. A lot of guys are (rightfully) worried that they may be taken to town by a gold digger. That their foreign girl may love them far more for their wallet and chances of opportunity than for whom they are as a man.

First off, it’s important to remember that women love opportunistically, not for love. Maybe there are some exceptions here and there (read this comment), but for the most part it holds true.

Much like how Brad Pitt and George Clooney have women throw themselves at them for their status, fame, and money–the same applies to foreign girls. Part of your attractiveness is the power you exude simply from having a Western passport, and all of the opportunities that come with it.

Even if you don’t take those opportunities by the balls, you inherently have more value because of where you were born.

Is it fair? Fuck no.

But it’s life, and it’s not supposed to be. After living here in Eastern Europe for nearly half a year, I definitely think many men are squandering opportunities to date foreign girls–most of whom will bring them infinitely more happiness than the typical vapid American woman.

But how do you screen a foreign girl for quality and ensure she’s not just some gold-digging whore?

I’ve found a pretty simple way that will tell you a lot about her.


Screen a Foreign Girl

Simply put, if you’re in her country and don’t speak the language…see how far out of the way she goes to help you.

This goes far, far beyond letting her do basic things like negotiate a taxi (for the locals, not foreigners rate).

If a foreign girl is of high quality, she’ll do things like…

1.) Translate the menu.

If you end up at a place that doesn’t have an English menu, does she painstakingly go through the entire menu and translate every dish for you?

Or does she just say, “What do you feel like?” and read you two or three choices?

2.) Taxis when she’s NOT there.

If you’re out one night and trying to find a way home, does she offer to give you a hand? I was out with the guys the other night and had been texting my girl, and told her my taxi app wasn’t working. She offered to call her usual cab company (Russian only, obviously) and arrange for them to pick me up and take me home.

3.) Never pressures you to learn HER language.

Sure, she’d love to communicate in her native tongue–but does she give you a bad time because you don’t speak it?

This is especially true if you go to a smaller country where there is not a worldwide language present.

For example, it’s not unreasonable for a Colombian girl to really hope you’d know some Spanish, or want you to make an attempt to learn some. But you can use Spanish in dozens of countries around the world, and it’s relatively easy to learn for a native English speaker.

On the flip side, if a Hungarian girl asked you to learn her language, which is only used in one small country, and is damn near impossible–that’s different.

For the record, I’d say Russian falls somewhere in the middle of that. It’s used in enough places that it’s incredibly useful, but very difficult for English speakers to learn.

If she shames you or complains about not being able to speak in her native language (other than the occasional frustration from being unable to express herself), tread carefully…


It seems really simple on paper. But I really think this is one of the best ways to upfront screen a foreign girl for quality. If from the get-go she’s not willing to go out of her way to help you, kick her to the curb.

Ironically enough, I’m one of the guys who really preaches to blend into a culture when you travel. To appreciate new things in the world. This would mean learning a few basics in the language, and not just walk up to people and expect them to know English.

But this is an exception.

You are in her country and she has a great opportunity by meeting you. Her ability to make life a bit easier for you, even if only for an hour, shows who she really is as a person.
