Lithuanian Women: The Dark Secrets They Don’t Want You To Know

Updated: October 16, 2018

I always wanted to go to the Baltics, a region consisting of countries such as Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia. Part of it was the allure of the area. During the time it was part of the Soviet Union, not much was known about the area. But inside the Soviet Union it was known as one of the most productive areas of the country. It’s one thing to live or visit Russia or Ukraine, but it was completely another to visit the Baltics.

The Baltics are different. Unlike the Slavic languages such as Russian, Ukrainian or Belorussian, the languages spoken in the Baltics do not come from the same language family. Lithuanian and Latvian are related but not mutually incomprehensible. On the other hand, Estonian is closely related to Finish.

Introduction

Lithuania, along with Latvia and Estonia, is one of the three Baltic nations perched in the Northeast of Europe near the border with Russia.

Lithuania is a relatively small country with a population of only 2.8 M people. The capital and the biggest city is Vilnius, with a population of only about 500,000 inhabitants or so.

I spent about two years living in Vilnius. I also traveled around the country quite a bit, so I feel I have a good grasp on the mentality of the people.

In that period of time, I dated several Lithuanian women and had one serious girlfriend with whom I spent a good portion of time living.

History

Lithuania has a turbulent history. The country’s main issue was its geography: it was always sandwiched between two major powers: Germany and Russia.

This meant that, for most of its history, the bigger powers used the small nation as a buffer to either preempt attacks or a staging ground for an offensive campaign.

At one point, Poland absorbed Lithuania into its empire. Then it was the newly formed Soviet Union, then it was the Germans during WWII. Then it was the Soviets again.

Finally, in 1991, Lithuania became independent. And, in 2004, it joined the European Union.

While one may argue that Lithuania is now fully independent, as a member of the EU, it still needs to answer to another boss—the bureaucrats residing in Brussels.

Nevertheless, today Lithuania is quickly becoming an easy country to live and to do business. One of the best things about Lithuania is its super-fast Internet that you can get for a very low price. When I lived there, I enjoyed a 100Mb Internet for only something like $10/month.

It’s also a country that’s cleaner, has less corruption and much more organized than pretty much all the other Soviet Union republics except its Baltic siblings: Estonia and Latvia.

In terms of the mentality of the people, I always thought that Lithuania was closer to its Slavic countries such as Ukraine instead of its Western neighbors. But I had the wrong perception. Lithuania (and the rest of the Baltic countries) is definitely closer to countries like Germany and Scandinavia.

Language

Lithuania’s language is Lithuanian. It’s somewhat distantly related to Latvian and also to the-now-extinct Old Prussian.

Since it doesn’t relate to other languages, it’s a fairly difficult language to grasp. I would rate it closer to Hungarian or Finnish in terms of difficulty.

Unlike other European languages, most words bear no resemblance to their English equivalents.

So, if you really want to learn it, you must dive head first and start from the beginning.

The good news is that a good chunk of the population speaks Russian, a legacy of its Soviet past. This is only applicable to those who’re 35+.

This is even more so in Vilnius, where almost everyone over 25 years old can at least understand basic Russian.

When I lived there, I spoke Russian to the older people and English to the younger ones.

The women

The first thing you notice about Lithuanian women is that they’re extremely beautiful. The best way to describe them would be to say that they’re some kind of a cross between Ukrainian and Russian with a touch of Scandinavian mixed in.

They have this “Northern” look to it. High cheekbones, light blue eyes, white skin.

There were times when I literally thought that almost every woman could be a supermodel. They are also extremely feminine and know how to dress when going out, etc.

They’re also tall. Extremely tall. I believe Lithuanians are some of the tallest people in Europe. It wasn’t uncommon to be surrounded by women who are all at least 5’10 and above. So, if you’re a guy who’s on a shorter scale (below 5’8), you’ll definitely feel it: people will be hovering above you.

But something kept bothering me throughout my stay. I was in Eastern Europe, but the women didn’t act Eastern European: they didn’t act like the women in the other Eastern European countries like Romania, Ukraine, and Russia. For a long time, I couldn’t figure out why. Everything was lining up: I was in Eastern Europe, in a former Soviet Union country; some of these women even spoke Russian, yet they didn’t act Eastern European.

I finally realized the problem after talking to a Russian guy who had been living in Lithuania for a while. His impression was that Russian and Ukrainian women are more “gentle” and “feminine.” He had some difficulty describing his experience, but I knew exactly what he was talking about. Russian and Ukrainian women are a bit more feminine; Lithuanian women are a bit more Westernized. The difference isn’t huge, but if you’ve spent some time in Russian and Ukraine, you’ll definitely notice it.

The culprit can be climate. Lithuania is located all the way in northern Europe so it’s brutally cold most of the year. The summers are nice and pleasant but short. Understandably, the people adapt and become more reserved, compared to say the chatty Italians or Spaniards.

Nevertheless, there hasn’t been another country where I’ve seen so many beautiful women in one place. I could literally be walking on the street and thinking to myself, that girl can easily be a model, or that girl, or that girl. They are that beautiful. But they’re also a bit more Westernized than their Eastern counterparts. Now, whether you consider that as an advantage or a disadvantage is completely up to you.

What kind of men do they prefer?

Lithuanian women aren’t like Russian or Ukrainian women who’re known to go crazy over foreigners (or used). Moreover, Lithuania isn’t a popular destination for foreign men who’re seeking out a wife, like the aforementioned Slavic countries.

From what I noticed when I was living there, Lithuanian women love their own men. I’ve almost never seen a couple that was different race or nationality. Just Lithuanians with other Lithuanians.

I do know that some Lithuanian girls love traveling abroad, primarily to Spain (some also go to Italy, but not as much). When I lived in Barcelona a few years ago, I noticed a lot of Lithuanian women with their Spanish boyfriends.

Lithuanians have also immigrated to places such as Denmark and England; in London, there are entire Lithuanian communities of people who chose England over their own country.

Although, I don’t believe women immigrated there specifically because of English men; it was mostly to have a better life in a richer country.

Although Lithuania (and other Baltic countries) aren’t huge friends with Russia—at least when it comes to politics—I did see Russian and Lithuanian couples. One of my friends is a Lithuanian guy who married a Russian woman.

Thus, unlike Polish women who’re crazy about anything Spanish, it’s really hard to pinpoint a specific type of guy who is destined to win Lithuanian girls’ heart.

Meeting women during the day

When I lived in Lithuania, I had a rule where I would approach at least two women every single day (or whenever I stepped outside). Thanks to this habit, I honed in my approaching skills and understood exactly what works and what doesn’t when it came to meeting women during the day.

The first thing you have to know is that Lithuanian women aren’t used to being cold approached. Nobody does it in Lithuania, so they would be very suspicious if a random person stopped them and started asking for directions. It just doesn’t happen in the country.

Therefore, you have to be prepared to give her additional “warm-up” time after your approach. Otherwise, she may be taken completely off-guard and run away.

After you felt that she has warmed up, feel free to ask her what you wanted to ask her such as directions to a store or if there’s a cool coffee shop nearby. If she shows interest, keep talking and then tell her that you’re a foreigner who’s here on a quick visit or if you live here as well.

Where to meet women during the day

Just about anywhere, but if I can make a quick suggestion: I wouldn’t recommend meeting them out on the street while they’re in a rush somewhere. Instead, you’re much better off meeting them when they’re relaxing in a coffee shop or browsing in some clothing store.

One of my favorite approaches—and one where I picked the most numbers—was actually in a Zara on Gedimino Prospectus, the main street in Vilnius.  (I also had decent luck at the H&M nearby).

The women were super relaxed and often open to approaches unlike those who were running to some destination.

Another great place for approaching is a bookstore or a library. Lithuanian women love to read, so you could pick up easy numbers while browsing a large or small bookstore or inside the library.

Meeting women at night

Lithuania has decent nightlife. The problem is that the cities are just too small to give you a wide variety of different venues and clubs. Nevertheless, the capital, Vilnius, has a number of bars with a good, friendly vibe.

There are also a bunch of clubs there as well.

In the summer, a really good option is the seaside town of Palanga. That’s where most of Lithuania goes to cool off.

There’s always stuff happening both during the day and at night. At night, there are some really happening clubs.

Meeting women online

While the nightlife isn’t the greatest, I was surprised at how easy it was to meet women online. When I briefly used Tinder, I easily racked up 50 and then 100 matches.

A lot of women I matched were Russian and Ukrainian women residing in the country, but I also matched plenty of beautiful Lithuania women as well.

Obviously, if your online game is your thing, definitely give Tinder a try. You can also look into joining some of the local dating sites as well.

Where to stay in Lithuania

Lithuania is a relatively small country with only two major cities: Vilnius and Kaunas.

Both cities are pretty small. Vilnius has only about 500,000 inhabitants; Kaunas has only about 300,000. Vilnius definitely feels more cosmopolitan of the two with its beautiful old town and a nice, modern “new town” part of the city.

Kaunas, on the other hand, feels like a small city, which of course it is. It’s like Vilnius on a smaller scale, with an old town as well. Kaunas also feels much more run down than Vilnius, with its old buses and rusty buildings.

For that reason alone, I definitely preferred Vilnius over Kaunas.

As I mentioned above, in the summer, you can also stay in the seaside towns such as Palanga where all the major parties are happening. They even fly into town famous DJ’s for big concerts.

When to visit

Let’s be honest: Lithuania is outright depressing in the winter. Since it’s so northern, the days are brutally short and there’s no sun at all during the winter months. Not too mention tons of snow and cold temperature.

I spent two whole winters in Vilnius. I typically live alone, but this time I was living with my Lithuania girlfriend. I honestly don’t know how I could’ve survived if I was living alone. It was really that bad.

Thus, I would definitely recommend visiting in the spring or summer if you can. Unlike most of Eastern Europe (e.g., Ukraine, Bulgaria, Romania), Lithuania doesn’t really get very hot in the summer. In fact, the temperature was usually hovering around 25 C or so. I only remember a few days when the temperature was uncomfortably hot.

The food

My experience with Lithuanian food was lots of dough, lots of meat and very little fruits and vegetables. It was the only country where I met lots of people who absolutely hated salads.

As a big meat eater, I wasn’t really impressed with the country’s cuisine. It was too plain for my palette. Like other Eastern European countries, it wasn’t spicy. But unlike Ukrainian food, with its multitude of different dishes owing to its rather diverse culture, Lithuanian food was relatively plain and uneventful.

The good news is that if you’re not huge of Lithuanian food, you’ll be happy to know that Vilnius is brimming with lots of great international cuisine. In fact, when I lived there I enjoyed amazing Indian food and really good Mexican food (opened by a young Mexican guy from Mexico City).

They even had great burgers and steaks.

Final thoughts

So, there you have it. The complete guide to Lithuania and the beautiful women who inhabit this Baltic country.

Lithuania may not be a large country, but it’s certainly far from boring. Out of all the cities, I can definitely recommend the capital, Vilnius as a base for getting to know this interesting country.

  1. I wonder if all of those years of Sovietization/Russification did the trick. In a country of just 3 million I think nearly 50 years of Communist oppression would have a profound effect. The culture must also be more susceptible to being undermined by westernization. I’ve also heard that several hundred thousand young people have left the country to search for better prospects in the EU.

    • I’ve been thinking the same way, but then there’re Polish / Russian / Ukr. girls that are much warmer. Moreover, you’d think they’d become super warm once the Iron Curtain fell.

      • Those other countries are much larger, maybe that served as a better buffer, or perhaps the culture wasn’t that warm to begin with? Some of my research covers Lithuanian history so I’ll keep it in mind for the future.

    • Anglos controlled western vulgar non ivilization is more harmful to those east Europeans than the Soviets could ever hope to be.
      Vulgar anglos pirate capitalist system has given them what -? – Prostitution, unemployment, drug epidemic and destitution so that those beutiful east eutopeans are forced to do menial job in a country of ugly faces like england etc.

      • i agree to that; they are nothing but predators trying to control women and exploit them by materializing with what they can. i am a big fan of beautiful eastern Europe from the Slaviks to the Baltics. personally i would prefer to have a relationship with them than the western spoiled brats. all because we western men create our women to be materialistic and build relationships base on what you can do and give rather than having a quality relationship

    • Hi! I’m Lithuanian, born in Soviet times and such perspective from West, that Soviet Union do nothing but Sovietized and Russifizied is wrong. In Soviet times Lithuanians in Lithuania made always about 80%. Also it should be noted that during 2nd World war other traditional minorities: Poles, Germans emigrated or were expelled, or killed (like Jews – Soviet Union no way related to this), thus from ethnic perspective Soviet Lithuania was more homogenic than ever. It should be noted in Soviet Lithuania ruled REAL communists, i.e. real idealists and in Lithuania there was no internal purging among communists. And Lithuanian communists were healthy nationalists if it is possible to say this. Lithuanian communist leader Snieckus was real patriot, there are plenty of provements. He realy industrialized poor country with the help of Soviet Union financies and technologies not inviting specialist, but rising them here, from Lithuanians. Many these factories work even today (modernized of course). Thus no significant immigration were from other Soviet republics. Honestly saying there are more “blacks” in today’s Lithuania.

  2. I’m always excited to come across a Baltic girl…they are rare, but do make their appearances in NYC.

    The one Lithuanian girl I ever had was just like you described…to the last detail.

    And guess what she was like in bed…a cold fish. I had to do absolutely everything while she just laid there.

    It was a first night thing, met her out dancing, it was her last night in NY, her friends persuaded her to go with me…the stars aligned for once.

    Before getting undressed, instead of passionately making out like the animals we are supposed to be–she stopped the kissing cold and said very logically, “Sooo, should I take a shower before or what?”

    I kind of laughed and said, “do what I do” and tried to get things hot and steamy again. She had no passion in those moments–absolutely gorgeous girl (she looked just like the one in the top pic). In the morning we lay there and I just admired her body in the sunlight. Really perfect tits and curves down by the waist. I was complementing, kissing, rubbing her, trying to get her turned on again–but she was just kind of watching me and not getting into it.

    SO VERY COLD. I’m really glad to have read this and heard the confirmation. I thought my mojo must have been off…

    How good could you get by in the Baltics with only English?

  3. Nature always seek balance. Baltic women colder nature balances out their greater beauty. I lived in Estonia for four years so I know exactly what you are talking about. Personally, I am happy to trade beauty for warm and sexuality any day.

  4. I’m glad, and a bit relieved that I came across this article. I went through a bit of a stretch with cold women, bad luck, bad year and a bit besides the point, so don’t need or want to go through that again. I’ve never been to Lithuania, but based on this article, you’ve probably saved me a lot of time and money. If and when I ever do end up traveling to the Baltics, I now have some reference point. Thanks, Maverick.

  5. I think impressions are always based on personal experiences, but you state an opnion that is interesting. Maybe another person has had total different experiences and finds Lithuanian women very warm and open.
    From a sociological point of view, I think there is a strong correlation between openness and a warm clilmate. But here are also exeptions so culture is a more determining factor I guess.

    I also found it particular that Baltic people are very punctual ( being on time). Did you have the same experience? Also the cold weather could be the reason for this.

  6. Of course they will be cold. First of all they are almost the same as Germans. Second, they don’t like Russians and always preferred the Germans. You don’t need all these Baltic countries and not even Ukraine. Go straight to Moscow and u won’t be disappointed, find there a good wife and make some children:) Good Luck

  7. “First of all, Lithuanian women are really tall—the tallest women that I’ve seen in all my travels around the world. They’re taller than Scandinavians, Germans and even Dutch. My guess is the average height for women is around 5’9-5’11” (most guys are easily over six feet).”

    Average height for Lithuanian women is 5’6″, for males it’s 5’11”. Both Dutch males and females are taller than their Lithuanian counterparts; Dutch females are on average an inch taller (5’7″) than their Lithuanian sisters. Dutch males are on average 6′ tall; Also an inch taller than their Lithuanian brothers.

    • It problably is the frame that gives the impression of being taller. Women from the Baltics (and Eastern Europe in general) have a lanky build (fragile), which gives the impression that the person is taller than they actually are. Dutch women are build like linebackers (as tall as the are wide) i.e. broad shoulders, huge thick legs and arms etc.

    • Yeah, I know the stats. I’ve also been to both countries.

      But after traveling all over Europe (and the world), I’ve never seen taller people than Lithuanians. They’re uniformly taller than any other nationality I’ve seen. Almost every woman is over 5’9. Almost every guy is over 6’0. (most are over 6’2″).

      I’ve dated girls who were 5’10”, and they told me they were not even the tallest girls in their university classes.

      If you’re a guy who’s under 5’9, you WILL notice it real quick. Also that’s an easy way to tell the foreigners apart.

    • It seems like the average male height for a white Millennial man is about 6’1. Most Slavic men are over 6 ft tall. And about 5’9 for an Asian young man. Is this correct for people under 35?

      I read that James Maverick describes himself as a man of average height. And he gets success with women. I have always wondered how tall he is.

  8. I’ve read most of your posts (regarding the “girls”); although some stuff was pretty vulgar, I like your descriptions. I am just curious to know approximately how many women have you slept with? And in addition, when you find your special someone, aren’t you afraid they would consider you kind of promiscuous ?? And if you HAD to choose a girl to marry, which nationality do you think would be considered the most wifey-material?

    Thanks 🙂

  9. Well, if you want to date beautiful girls who are not cold, head to France! 🙂 Especially the Rhone-Alpes and PACA regions. But Paris is not short on hot babes either 🙂

    • French girls have this amazing, hard to describe, “je-ne-sais-quoi” about them.

      • Ah, indeed! Maybe it’s the way they always dress nicely to fit their beautiful bodies. Maybe it’s because they don’t get fat. Maybe because they’re so confident and unafraid of men and life. Or maybe because they’re so modern, glued to their iphones and books, yet they still dream of Prince Charming arriving on a white horse, swooping them off their feet, and taking them 🙂

        By your experience, what are the best ideas for a first date with a French girl?

        • That depends on what the girl likes. I was dating a French girl in Brazil, and our first “real date” was to a museum gallery in Rio’s downtown. Up to that point, I didn’t even know Rio had museums.

          • I was thinking of inviting a girl who is at least moderately interested in art to an art museum and/or Napoleon’s palace in Fontainebleau, which usually hosts an art exhibition. How does that sound?

            (Excluding the fact that Fontainebleau is a little far from Paris and its palace is a little bus ride away from the railway station.)

  10. My buddy is going to have a heart attack when he reads this, he was planning to go to Lithuania to hunt for women. BTW, Prague has been great, after just 4 days in the city I had already a date with a Russian girl I met online who was genuinely looking for friendship and amazed me so much with her beauty, openness and warmth that I’m sold, I can’t go back to America because I just won’t find girls like this in there. And Prague not only has Czech women but also Russian and Ukrainian, so voila!

  11. this is bull indeed I can tell you as a Lithuanian woman.
    guy who makes opinion about all girls just because he slept with one doesn’t appeal like very intelligent to me… maybe she was cold because you where shitty in bed..
    yes we are beautiful ,intelligent , cultural , strong, and all have personalities,we all different and unique . if we reserved it’s probably because we were occupied by soviets but fact is we have survived and have a lot to learn about our freedom..
    I am glad you guys not coming as we not some kind cheep material for the western rich spoiled guys ,we have some pride

    • I am a guy from the northern part of India. I met my Lithuanian girlfriend before 4 years and she is just amazing and well cultured. We live together today and will be getting married within next 2 years. What I found out within this time which we spent together, is that Lithuania has its own unique culture and much different than Russia or even Latvia. Yes people in Lithuania don’t like Russian much because they used to torture them during Soviet oppression. Lithuanian woman is feminine, pretty, well cultured, independent and confident in herself. The one whom they love, they won’t let him go. I don’t need to look around for any other woman anymore and neither I have any lust of sleeping with thousands of woman. Rather I am happy to be with one and appreciate what I have.

      In my belief every girl around the world is same. What she needs is love, respect, space and someone who can put in his trust in her.

  12. If we are so bad, then why visit Lithuania? You can’t judge a country based on a few women.

  13. Hi Maverick!

    I will live in Lithuania,because of having internet business I can move there whenever I want.

    How can I contact you?

    Greetings

  14. It is quite creepy and dumb to travel in eastern Europe to hook up with women;
    If you’re not successful in your own country, great are the chances it will be the same there.
    Plus, if you do not have a genuine interest in their culture, you are wasting your time and theirs.
    I am french from russian origins and i often travel in Russia to practice russian and spend time with friends. Ok, there are a bit more attractive girls there than in France, but remember that paris is where all the most beautiful girls from Europe goes like London. The difference is that girls in Paris are bit more feminist, and will be more exigent in the relationship, but still way less than scandinavian and Germans. Honestly, i often go to clubs with tight doors in Paris where i dare you to find a girl than couldn’t be a model, and i don’t need to waste my time running after gold diggers and non french speaking girls in other countries.

    Most of the girls you will meet there and accept to move out the country with you will leave you as soon as they will get what they want. The good ones are the ones who do not want to leave the country and i bet you guys do not plan to learn estonian.

    I know many great girls in Russia, but if you think they are cheap, you are dead wrong; Girls i know in Paris are MUCH more low key. There are many very rich guys in Moscow and many guys spending outrageously to make their girlfriend happy in this country. It is something cultural. Even though more girls in Russia are entrepreneurs and have high corporate positions than in any other country in Europe, men do provide and spare no expenses for their girlfriends, which is quite a great deal of difference with the west where many couple split the bills.
    Bottom line, you’re not going to impress anybody in Russia and Baltic countries with your dollars, and do not go there only for girls unless you genuinely want to discover those cultures

  15. Lithuanians never been eastern europeans, it’s just history. what’s the difference is Lithuania used to be Catholic. Lithuanian girls like Lithuanian men and Lithuanian men don’t like foreigners. Because most foreigners are intellectualy mediocre. And only stupid girls sleep with stupid. if a girl sleeps with a foreigner she’s either dumb or no Lithuanian guy will marry her. Or if someone will marry her he’s an idiot. Many Lithuanians still marry early and it’s a good stuff.
    so you cannot tell your opinion about lithuanian girls because you will never have a decent one, fool.

    There are plenty of good women in the West. go to christian events…

    • That’s just messed up your saying Lithuanian woman get with Lithuanian men and men don’t want any other country and if they do get with a foreigner they are dumb I think that is way out of line and defiantly wrong in every country there are all types of people with different looks and cultures personalities not everyone is the same

  16. Well, I’m a Lithuanian woman. I’m 5’5″, therefore considered short & “cute” in my country. Most of my girlfriends are 5’6″-5’9″, only a few are my height. You know, honestly, it’s true that we are cold people. As I’m travelling over the world, especially warm climate countries, everytime I go back at home I get that cultural shock – dull faces, cold weather, everyone’s constrained, walking with their eyes sticked to the ground. I think it’s mainly not because of weather. It’s because of horrible economics. People are working like slaves in here and still cannot live with dignity. Everyone is depressed because they have to count pennies. Except rich monopolists or politicians.
    As women we have strict values and we respect ourselves, knowing our worth. Ofcourse, there are girls who are open to “no strings attached” relationships (and that’s okay), but most of us stick to our morals. There was a few times when man who were foreigners tried pulling me to the dancefloor without politely asking for a dance or were having a narcissistic attitude. If I’ve said “that is not a nice thing for a man to do”, they acted surprised or simply ran away without saying anything. You have to treat us with respect if you want to be treated the same way. Then we will be warm and gentle.
    I always love meeting new people, despite their race or gender, everyone is interesting in their own special way. BUT. If you come across like a douchebag, that’s not going to work, lol.
    Anyways, I met a lot of people who were visiting LT from Spain, Italy, India, even America and every single one I met was enjoying staying here 🙂

  17. I am an ukrainian girl living in UK. I am in war with a lithuanian girl who stole me the UK guy with whom I was flirting. She is a supermodel and I cannot compete with her. I am about 5’5 and she is 5’10’. But we’re both blondes with green eyes. She’s very slim and I am muscular with big tits (ex pole dancer). I cannot accept this situation. I want to die when I see them kissing each other in front of me. I am sure she will leave him for another richer guy. She’s with him just to settle down in UK. I hate her a lot. For her fault , this guy not even says me hello. SLAVA UKRAINIE!

    • Such a stupid provokation against ukrainian People , i think some jelous lithianian have write that ,and so tall body is also not very Good for me short girls are much more cute

  18. Now about Lithuanian girls. I think Lithuanian girls have more similarities with Polish and Belarusian girls, neither to Latvian or Scandinavian, but are more shy, and I like it. There’s no such type of girls as Scandinavian blonde with such whitish hairs and face. While from linguistic perspective we’re close to Latvians, but in mentality I think we are different. What I realy don’t like in Latvia: there are lots of smoking girls and womans, and smoking is presented like emancipation. Killing himself as emancipation…
    Yes, we’re cold (in good sense of it) and I like it. But there are many reasons that probaly explain why we’re cold (in bad sense): cold season lasts for 6 months, October-November (because of global warming even December, snowy December ended in 80-ies) could be terribly rainy with no sun for weaks. Politicians in 1990 promised that we would live like in Scandinavia, but reality is such that we live like in 19th century’s wild capitalism or Latin America in 40-ies. Lots of jobless, more than 100 thousand, huge emigration, totally corruption, lots of stupidity among politicians, stupid russophobia, econimical idiotism, pseudodemocracy (sic!), stupid nationalism, no safe feeling, destruction in villages. We miss real socialism, not Soviet-like, but Scandinavian-like. I.e. with Scandinavia is only one common thing: we want to live like in Scandinavia. 🙂

  19. Afternoon James (or afternoon in Mill Valley, CA). I appreciate your post. I rarely respond to these websites however stumbled across yours and was intrigued. I have never been to Lithuania (appears I missed out), however, would like to share a perspective with you, that you may, or may not find interesting. I spent a great deal of time in the Ukraine back in 2010-11 when working as an engineering consultant with the Senior Architectural Project Manager during the planning and development of the Ocean Plaza Mall located in Kiev. This was not my first sojourn however, as I have been traveling the globe between projects for several years (I am a structural engineer), now retired and will be residing in Lviv, Ukraine for the remainder of my days after finalizing my messy divorce here at home.

    A little about myself, I am American, son of an American father and Ukrainian mother. In addition to English, I speak Russian, Ukrainian and Spanish fluently. I am now 52 years old, however, first traveled to Ukraine (will keep this to E. Europe) in 1997 when I was 33. I travelled alone, added to the adventure. It was a different world then, social media still in the infancy stages, etc. Being fluent in both Russian/Ukrainian was a huge bonus for me. They were still unfamiliar with Americans, and would even stop and stare in the streets of Kiev when I would walk by – or stop me and ask a 1,000 questions, especially once they found I spoke their dialect. I remember looking back, asking myself how they knew I was an American?

    During this first trip, I traveled between Kiev, Odessa, Lviv, Kharkiv, Simferopol, Sevastopol, Nikolaev and Yalta. I know, everyone is Brad Pit on the internet, but I take care of myself, 6’3”, athletic and not bad looking if I do say so. The ladies have never been an issue, home or abroad. They were absolutely not an issue in Ukraine back in 1997. Especially Kiev, Odessa and Sevastopol. I remember being in a club in Odessa, and the women actually competing over my attention. Everyone wanted to know more about the American, especially one who could communicate effortlessly. If I were searching for a mate back then, I would have seriously considered Sevastopol or Lviv. Sevastopol in particular seemed to have beautiful, tall, tanned ladies brimming from every corner. I also remember the ladies in Sevastopol and Lviv smiling more than the other cities. I also remember the cost of goods and restaurants was unbelievably inexpensive. I ate dinner out every evening, generally with a date during my visit, and cannot remember spending more than $15. As with all Russians, they were suspicious in nature, however their curiosity overcame their natural apprehensiveness. The only pessimism I remember from this early trip, were a couple of cantankerous encounters with men over 40 (had a couple of major spats that came very close to leading to something more), however found the younger generation more inquisitive and accepting. The other negative experience, I had were with a couple of gold-diggers wanting to bounce me pole-to-pole for expensive entertainment. Once I understood their game, they were quickly kicked to the curb. To this day, I look fondly upon this visit as the Ukraine was in the “wild west” stages of its development, and had not yet been soured by a wave of opportunistic foreigners.

    There were several subsequent visits to the Ukraine after this, but nothing to rival this first visit. When working on the Ocean Plaza Mall project, I was only able to tour about Kiev (working 10-12 hour days), however, it has taken on a completely different vibe if you will re: Americans from my earlier visit. No longer did runway model types stop on the street with their girlfriends, smile and giggle when you walked by. It had been a little-big city, it was now an international city of stature. The only indifference I could say which was a bonus was being able to gain entry into some of the more exclusive clubs in Kiev (i.e., Sky Bar, Decadence Nightclub, Heavan Club, etc.). On occasion, my team and I would frequent these clubs and my advice to them once we neared the front entrance, was begin conversing in English loudly that the doorman could hear them. This would almost assure entry as Ukrainian belief is that traveling Americans and their money are easily parted. Actually, we later became well acquainted with the manager of the Sky Bar, Vadim. He also always provided valuable insight on the lay of the land and the ladies within the club. The distinction from the clubs in Odessa from the clubs found in Kiev’s Pechersk district, is the ladies in Odessa give off a much more easily compromised vibe. The ladies found in Kiev’s upscale Pechersk district are much more refined and could have easily just finished a Vogue glamor shoot, however give that, “I am waiting for an oligarch because I am worth it.”

    I have many former business associates who bug me to take them “babe” shopping in the Ukraine for a couple of weeks, however, explain that the old American mystique has long since worn off, and like most any other developed country, are no longer intrigued simply because of the foreigner moniker. I actually told them that if I were to try to get my “sex tourism” thing on, I would not choose Ukraine, however opt for Estonia or Poland. Quite honestly, I found the ladies in Estonia to be the most beautiful in all of E. Europe. The Estonian ladies are strikingly similar to the Norwegian ladies and smile more. Do not get me wrong, anyone who has traveled knows there are no more beautiful women in the world than those found in Stockholm and Oslo. Of course, they would absolutely have more luck getting laid in Poland.

    When in Nikolaev, I had lunch with a lady who confessed she had serious intentions to get married and live happily ever after. She had placed herself in several of the mail-order-bride online sites, however was only interested in someone relatively close to her in age and interests. As importantly, she admitted that if she was to move away from her family and friends, he would need to be wealthy, able to fly her back and forth when she wished as well as help her family if need be. She laughed when telling me of emails from gents old enough to be her father, pouring their hearts out to her; of course she was not interested. She also asked me how I got so tall, as most of the men writing her from America online were short, bald and fat? She then smiled and continued to eat her meal – got me!  I found this to be not an unusual value system with the ladies searching for love abroad. There remain quality ladies who have not been ruined if you know where to look. When in Kiev in 2010, I began dating a lady who worked at the laundry facility where I had my clothes dry cleaned. She was I believe everything a man could want in a woman, educated, hardworking, tall, lovely, womanly, traditional, however, I made it a rule to not become romantically entangled with a Ukrainian woman. Instead, I married the American wife from Hell who is not attempting to take ½ of everything I have earned over the years. Anyhow, just wanted to share a few words of my time in Ukraine.

    Amazing Lithuanian woman in traditional dress. Front cover of National Geographic material.

  22. If you are looking for a woman who is only interested in your money……then look no furter. These woman are ruthless and if you are an idiot and fall for the lies that they tell you, then you have no one to blame but yourself. They will literally take any man regardless of looks and personality if they consider him to be wealthy and willing to spend money on them.
    I genuinely feel sorry for the men who are trapped and duped by these calculating deceptive wonen. Granted there are some who are very attractive….but do you really want to be with a women who merely looks upon you as a cash cow rather than a woman who genuinely loves you for who you really are? I know which I would prefer. Don’t be an idiot…….

    • Totally agree, you need to live in Lithuania to really select the good out of the tons of garbage. Lithuanian girls are really keen to squeeze a man if they think they can get something from him. They typical trap is tell you that they wanna a baby, even without being married. Russian girls are less Machiavellian and more caring.

  23. Lithuanian girls are very beautiful but be careful; there are plenty of what Lithuanians call “Barrakudas”, especially hunting for foreigners. Some signs of alert:

    – You met her in Vilnius and she is just playing around leaving you to pay the bills.
    – You started a relationship with her and then she is pushing you to move to Vilnius / Lithuania.
    – She is older than 35 and never had a long lasting relationship neither has been married or lived with a boyfriend nor have a child – REAL WARNING! THOSE ARE THE MOST DANGEROUS. Those are what I call „sex and the city girls“. Real hunters who see man as a business case and not as a partner. They are keen to go to bed strait the way and get as much as they can from him and when the person cannot be squeezed anymore then leave him. Usually those girls have a Lithuanian guy, usually married, who nobody (only very few of her friends) knows about him, and who is filling their emotional needs and get sex when there is nobody else around, everything without commitment. Those girls are high profile foreigner’s hunters.
    – She is complaining about your behaviors and telling you that Lithuanian man do this or don‘t do that. (So why she is not with a Lithuanian man?)
    – She is unemployed and telling you that she had a career but now she wants to start a business, but she is not clear about her project.
    – She has never lived abroad – Not the same to travel abroad for holidays
    – She is pushing you to learn Lithuanian at any cost and kicking your balls when you are not improving on it. (let‘s be honest, Lithuanian is more difficult that German)
    – She is telling you that she wants to spend the weekend in Palanga (beach town, very expensive)
    – She is telling you about her expensive tastes (mentioning brands) in clothing, cars, perfumes, jewelry and indirectly telling you what she wants for Christmas, birthday, etc.
    – She is driving an Audi, Mercedes or BMW and has a low paid job, she is freelancer or it is unemployed. – Barrakudas only drive those brands.
    – She is telling you that she feels old and/or frustrated because she does not have a child. Warning! Lithuanian girls have a lot of social pressure to get a child before 30. If a girl is telling this, she may be with you because she is expecting you to make her pregnant. Also she may be open to cheat on you if you can’t make her pregnant.
    – She is presenting herself as high society girl; she says she is part of some association, club or something. Quite common they mention the Rotary club. (This club is very popular in Lithuania).
    – Her family is from a poor town. Be careful, girls in Lithuania are very attached to her families and pay attention about what her parents say. If she comes from a poor town, it is probably that her family is village people, very conservative and reluctant towards foreigners. So a girl with this kind of family will be bombed by her relatives about what she is doing with a foreigner and that she has to stop and marry a Lithuanian guy. Trust me; I have seen this many times.

    And NEVER, never move to Lithuania because a girl. 99% of foreigner men living in Vilnius came because they had a relationship with a Lithuanian girl, where she pushed him to move in and after a while, she left him. The success rate of couples who started and lasted after they re-joined in Lithuania is less than 1%. As said, Lithuanian girls are curious and they like to be with foreigners, but unless she has lived abroad for at least 2 years (Latvia doesn‘t count), your chances to get something lasting are very low. They are very stubborn regarding cultural differences and for them to understand why you wash dishes in the dishwasher instead of just rinse them with water is already a source of disagreement and fights. Lithuanian girls, especially those who never lived abroad, think that the only right way is the Lithuanian way and they will fight for that. Don‘t waste your time and life pursuing an illusion of a sexy blonde.
