In Bulgarian mythology the dragon looks like a man in many ways: it eats, drinks, gets married and has offspring. Despite having their own dragon women, zmeys (dragons) often fall in love with human girls and young brides and begin to secretly visit them at night. Such women gradually begin to stay away from others and stop caring about anything else as the zmey drains all their powers. Many folk songs tell the story of dragons descending from the sky and snatching their beloved girls.
