Lаtvіа іѕ lосаtеd along thе Coastal rеgіоnѕ оf the Bаltіс Sea. Rіgа, a vеrу рорulаr trаvеl dеѕtіnаtіоn, іѕ іtѕ capital city. Thе ѕtаtе is surrounded bу mаgnіfісеnt beaches аnd bеаutіful nаturаl ѕсеnеry like wаtеrfаllѕ аnd аnсіеnt ruіnѕ. Its соаѕtal areas are уеt to be spoilt аnd it has nаturаllу soft аnd sandy bеасhеѕ. Neighbouring countries are Lithuania, Estonia, Russia and Belarus.
Durіng the months оf Junе, аll thе way through to September, the сlіmаtе оf Lаtvіа іѕ ѕо сооl and warm. Thіѕ іѕ the tіmе whеn harvesting is dоnе and the mоnthѕ thаt mоѕt tоurіѕtѕ vіѕіt. Rаіnѕ are еxреrіеnсеd іn October and November, and the соldеѕt of аll mоnthѕ are January аnd February.
Latvia іѕ аlѕо very rісh іn wіld game probably because mоѕt of іtѕ lаnd is covered bу fоrеѕtѕ. Lаkеѕ too аrе рlеntу аѕ wеll аѕ river vаllеуѕ wіth ѕаndу сlіffѕ. Induѕtrіаlіzаtіоn wаѕ put on halt mаnу уеаrѕ bасk and thіѕ is the main reason whу thе state is ѕо еnvіrоnmеntally aware and frіеndlу.
Latvia іѕ hіghlу rich іn сulturе thоugh it varies grеаtlу between the cultures that are present in the country. Kurzеnе, Zеmgаlе, Lаtgаlе, Vіdzеmе аnd the Rіgа rеgіоnѕ аll have dіffеrеnt mоdеѕ of dress аnd thеу speak a different language. Thе water аttrасtіоnѕ, open аіr muѕеumѕ, nіght ѕhоwѕ, nаturе раrkѕ, аrt аnd trаdіtіоnаl muѕеumѕ аrе ѕоmе of thе thіngѕ a person ѕhоuld еxреrіеnсе while visiting. Historical buildings, wonderful architecture, and very attractive Latvian women make this country a little different to the rest.
The population of the country is just over 2 million, so when it comes to the females in Latvia, you don’t have unlimited numbers to choose from like in other countries. The country has aligned itself with the European Union after gaining independence from Russia in 1991. Surprisingly, the literacy level in Latvia is 99% which means educated, intelligent, informed people who speak enough English in the right places to make it well worth visiting your online love.
The situation in Latvia is that it’s between generations meaning that the older folk who had old fashioned Russian influences in their values are becoming less. They are making way for the young ones who are up to date with the latest fashions, music, and entertainment. If you look at pictures of Latvian women on dating sites, you will see beautiful, feminine, hot young ladies wanting a better life than what they are currently experiencing at home.
Dressed in tight-fitting clothing, miniskirts and high heels, sexy poses and cosmetics to enhance their looks, these Latvian women are well worth chasing for a long term relationship. Religion does exist in Latvia but like in a lot of countries, there is a trend by the younger generations to move away from formal faiths.
Young Latvian women consider themselves to be equal to the guys, in many cases, even better. They usually have a job as well as look after the house. The girls love going out to enjoy themselves having a drink and some dancing. There is an air of sophistication with some as well with outings to the opera, museums, and some fine dining. The Latvian food is great, and eating is a favourite pastime. If you’re out female hunting, then you won’t find a lot happening outside of weekends. That’s basically partying time.
There is a 50% divorce rate in the country, and that’s really about average. The USA’s divorce rate is about 54%. The women in Latvia are always on the lookout for a husband but tend to find the local guys far from desirable. The local guys drink far too much, and they like to cheat on their wives. If you want to marry or have a relationship with a Latvian woman you need to give her your total devotion so that she trusts you implicitly.
The women go to a lot of trouble to make themselves look nice for their man as well as feel good about themselves. Looking good and being well dressed will get you a lot of Brownie points when starting a relationship. Being romantic and showing your appreciation will go a long way towards her picking you as her partner. The good news is they love foreigners, and it’s the usual reason – money.
A foreign guy signifies a better life for them than the one they are leading now, but as mentioned above, if you show true appreciation and devotion to your Latvian woman she is what we call a ‘keeper.’ They enjoy the company of men and are happy to speak to strangers. The women are neither shy nor rude. You can do a lot worse than picking one of these stunning beauties as your wife.
You can contact these beautiful women a couple of ways. The country is very popular with tourists, so if you decide to visit the Balkan countries, Latvia is a great place to stop and check out the local ladies. Socialising is a weekend activity so a Friday or Saturday night at the local bar and club scene might find you in the arms of a gorgeous girl. As most speak more than passable English, you will be able to try a few corny pick-up lines, although your looks and your English speaking will be attraction enough for some.
If your main reason for traveling to Latvia is to spend time with your woman, then you would have met her online. It remains one of the best ways to ensure that a long trip and reasonable expense is rewarded with being able to meet a woman there rather than wandering around bars and clubs in the futile hope that you are going to meet the girl of your dreams.
All the online dating rules apply, but keep in mind that you have a smaller population to deal with, so the choices are far more limited. Latvian women are less deceptive than women in countries whose population is in the millions. But you still need to weed out the ones you don’t want. If you have your heart set on meeting a single, beautiful, English speaking, slim, young Latvian honey, then stick to your guns when you start chatting online.
Married? No. Kids? No. Fat? No. Average looking? No. Beautiful? Yes. Slim? Yes. Sexy? Yes. At this point, you have established contact and over the next few weeks or months make the time to get to know each other better. Hobbies, interests, and ideas can be exchanged so that you establish some common ground to grow your relationship. Once you are at the stage of complete trust and have fallen in ‘online love’, which is somewhat different to real love, then it’s time to make plans to visit her.

If you measure in at 5’5”, and you would feel uncomfortable dating a woman 3 – 4 inches taller than you, then she wants to wear high heels, make sure you ask her height before connecting.
