Dating

Lithuania is a country in the Baltic region of Europe. The country is situated along the southeastern shore of the Baltic Sea, to the southeast of Sweden and Denmark. It is bordered by Latvia to the north, Belarus to the east and south, Poland to the south, and Kaliningrad Oblast (a Russian exclave) to the southwest. Lithuania has an estimated population of approximately 2.8 million people as of 2019, and its capital and largest city is Vilnius. Other major cities are Kaunas and Klaipėda. The official language, Lithuanian, is one of only two living languages in the Baltic branch of the Indo-European language family, the other being Latvian.

Most Eastern European girls love to feel protected and well taken care of. They play the vulnerability card all too often and, it does work to get them a masculine man. Lithuanian girls, on the other hand, are nowhere as gullible. They are pretty and smart and they know it. And they also know that not all guys have the purest of intentions.


Dating Culture

With a lifetime average of just 3 sexual partners, the majority of Lithuanians spend their lives outside the "dating scene" altogether. So much so, that the concept "(s)he is dating somebody" had no translation into the Lithuanian language until some 2000s, when the journalists who translated English articles about the American film and music stars came up with a direct translation. For those who do date, it is common for a man to pay for the woman during a date. However, the prevalence of such practice decreases as the seriousness of the woman increases. Women who are into one-night stands far more often accept (or even demand) such arrangements (and also gifts) than women who are into serious relationships.


Women

Women are prominent in Lithuanian public life. According to the World Bank, Lithuania is the only country in Europe to regularly have more women than men in its workforce (50.5% in 2012). Currently, the percentage is at 49.9% but it is still larger than that for any single European or Western country.

However, while most Lithuanian women work, there is still a popular belief that a man must provide for the family. In such families, only the husband is expected to do a serious career while the wife often selects the most interesting job instead, giving much less regard to the salary. Because of this, Lithuanian men on average earn more than the women, although this gap is smaller than in most other European countries. Moreover, the situation is changing, as increasingly many women opt to do serious careers, whereas increasingly many men seek to have more interesting jobs even if they pay less. This is especially true for those under 40 and even more so for those under 30.

The most popular fields of education among women were education, health and social services, social sciences, business and law. Most teaching staff at general schools were women. At vocational schools, women made up 69%, at colleges – 67%, at universities – 53% of the academic staff.

In addition to childcare, women also have a large share of housekeeping. Childcare and housekeeping – are one of the main reasons why women often choose to work part-time. Those women who want to remain in the labor market and combine work and family responsibilities also face barriers. In addition to the aforementioned career breaks, the lack of childcare institutions and housekeeping issues, another contributing reason is – unfavorable employer's attitude towards women who raise children. Usually, it is mainly seen in the lack of flexibility in working hours.


Lithuanian Girls (age 18 - 29)

Lithuanian women are very tall. Girls are generally slender with very long hair and that stereotypical "Russian looking" face. Lithuanians can have mixes of looks with their Polish, Belarusian and Baltic cousins. So you'll see a nice blend of Slavic meets Baltic. Dark hair and light eyes are very common. Some girls even have an olive skin tone to them. They are slim and in shape. The McDonalds overload doesn't seem to be having as much of an effect here as in other parts of Eastern Europe.

With that said, there is a big and growing hipster orientation with the youth. On the plus side, you'll find lots of girls who speak English. On the other side, you'll see they have been programmed to accept Western programming in some ways, yet also resist it in others with their religious background. While tattoos and piercings aren't widespread, weird fashion and hair seem to be a thing in Lithuania with some subset of girls. Upon conversing with them, you may notice they're signaling just how strange they are. What you see is what you get with the hipsters.


Lithuanian Women (age 30 - 45)

Lithuanian women are smart and generally extraverted. It’s a small country with a unique language and strong social cohesion. Religion and family are important. The notch hungry player starving for +9 9s may be asking for too much on a trip to Lithuania. The women are friendly, and also savvy.

You'll find more western-oriented Lithuanians during nightlife where fast sex may be possible. Clubs will see lots of groups partying together, so it may not be the best bet for getting good approaches in, but you never know. There are lots of bars, and also lots of hipster bars. If you're in town for a short time, one of the western-minded fast-sex hipster girls would be your best bet. Quality is very much hit or miss in these places.


Lithuanian Ladies (age 45+)

Lithuanian women are arguably the most attractive girls of the Baltics and also the most conservative. Foreigners are welcomed, but for gaming purposes, you'll be put to the test. You can grab your flag easily enough from one of the many hipster bars around, but that elusive 8+ girl will require a larger time investment. With such a small-town vibe all around it's tough to decide to stay in Lithuania long term unless you hit it off with a girl you like. Lithuania is thus not the best game spot but it can be nice if you're looking for a serious girlfriend or wife.


Foreign Girls (tourists, expats, students, etc.)

Like other countries, most of the foreign girls in Lithuania are tourists. Lithuania attracts many visitors from neighboring countries and all over the world. In 2018, 1.7 million foreign visitors arrived in Lithuania for business, family and leisure. The historical legacy of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, rich history, architecture, pristine nature, seaside and SPA resorts are the main attraction points of Lithuania.


Sex

Since many girls coming from traditional families, it is almost impossible for women to have sex before marriage otherwise it will be a shame for all her family. Dating around is not very much appreciated as well, and even though men have much more freedom in that department.


Sex Culture

The country has no national statistics on youth’s social and psychological well-being. No representative survey has ever assessed their mental health. It fits the pattern that they are denied essential information on reproductive health and sexuality. Young people in many developing countries are not systematically taught about reproductive health and the psychology of intimacy. It is harmful to keep all things sexual shrouded in secrecy – as is evident in Lithuania.


One-Night Stands

The people in the city are quite conservative and as such, the chances of having one-night stands in Lithuania are minimal. It is considered an abomination for two people to engage in sex outside marriage. Many of the one-night stands that take place in the country involve at least one foreigner. All this together made Lithuania a popular destination for foreign men to seek quick dates.


Best Places to Meet Single Girls

Offsetting Lithuania's reverence of tradition is a spirited counterculture, particularly in compact capital Vilnius. A city of churches and baroque finery, Vilnius’ cobblestoned charms haven’t gone unnoticed by tourists. Less visited are second city Kaunas and spa resort Druskininkai, where 19th-century architecture nudges against brooding Soviet buildings.

As Europe's last country to be Christianized, pagan history still soaks the land. Curonian Spit, splintering from the Baltic coast, is awash in folklore. Cyclists, hikers and beach-goers eagerly board ferries to its voluptuous dunes. Cloaking the rest of Lithuania are lakes, forests of birch and pine, and pancake-flat farmland; in Lithuania, there's ample space to breathe.


Bars, Pubs and Nightclubs

• Faksas: This party cabin in the pinewoods is one of the few real nightspots in Nida. Proclaiming itself 'Friendly to rockers, bikers and freaky people', Faksas puts on live acts in summer, and the beer and shots are usually flowing, while the clientele perches on wooden crates that pass for seats.

• King & Mouse: While a collection of more than 300 whiskeys from around the world is its forte, this bar also does great cocktails and food. Knowledgeable staff, outdoor area twinkle with fairy lights and a welcoming atmosphere make this one of Old Town's sweetest spots to refuel.

• Hard Shake: This cocktail bar in Klaipeda is small in size but a giant when it comes to mixology. The list of drinks, both classic and original is epic, and if by some freak chance you don't find what you're looking for, the bartenders can make you one according to your specifications. DJ sets keep the place lively on weekends.

• Opium: This compact venue in the capital, Vilnius – which serves food in the daylight hours – is for serious clubbers. Some of Vilnius' best DJs, as well as international acts, play electro, techno and house.

• Pabo Latino: If you want to salsa till the wee hours, and don't mind a cocktail or two, this technicolor cavern in Vilnius promises all sorts of fun. Super-popular with locals.

• 2½ Ubuolio: A den for locals to glug a cold one over trivia nights and sports screenings, this cider pub in a vaulted cellar gets packed out even on weeknights and features no less than 30 different types of fermented apple brew. Good bar food and occasional live music too are on offer in this joint in Kaunas.

• Žvejų Baras: Set aglow by lead-lined lamps, the maritime-meets-industrial vibe of this timbered portside pub lives up to the name, meaning 'Fisherman's Bar'. This is one of Klaipėda's nicest places to catch live music, sports screenings or chat over one of 16 different (mostly Lithuanian) beers.

• Bukowski: The eponymous Barfly is the spiritual patron of this charismatic boho bar in a less-trodden pocket of Old Town Vilnius. It has a back terrace for finer weather, great beers on tap, a full program of poetry, music and other events, and a welcoming, unpretentious atmosphere.

• Šachmatinė: One of the biggest, most raucous clubs in Palanga, playing mainly house and mainstream dance music until dawn.

• Skliautas: Great for beers and a boisterous atmosphere, Skliautas bursts with energy at most times of the day and night. Go in the early evening for a relatively sedate drink on one of the outdoor tables; in summer its crowd overflows into the adjoining alley. Better for drinks than dinner.

• Piano: Outdoor barbecue restaurant and terrace by day, cocktail bar–club by night, Piano tries to keep the throngs happy throughout the day. A crowded summer event schedule sees themed parties alternate with live acts and DJs. The eponymous piano is a white grand, kept out front.

Bernadine and St. Francis churches that nestle close by it make up part of the wider Bernadine Priory.

The Curonian Spit refers to a long strip of sand between the Curonian Lagoon and the mighty Baltic Sea. Part of the spit is located in Russia with the northern side in Lithuania. The spit is the product of a glacier that dates back 5,000 years and it has some of the highest dunes in all of Europe. The national park here was formed in 1991 to guard the precious ecosystems found in the Curonian Spit and you will find a wide range of waterfowl here in the wetlands and dunes.

The Museum of Genocide Victims sits in the old Gestapo and KGB headquarters in Vilnius and acts as a permanent memorial to all those who lost their lives during the Soviet occupation of Lithuania after the Second World War.

Relationship

A man like in other countries is said to be a protection for the girl. You need to pay attention to know what is going on in your date`s life. Women in Lithuania like when men take care and ask them common questions like, “how was your day?” and so on.

This is well-known that man should pay. Sometimes women want to look independent. They ask to pay the bill or for example, buy tickets in the cinema by themselves. Here man should say that he will pay. For dinner, tickets and so on. It is always the man`s job to cover different expenses. It cannot be called as it is a rule. It is a thing that every well-educated person knows. It can also be said about offering to carry bags or briefcases. If you see that it is heavy, offer to take it. The girl will like this action. It can also show her that you have good manners.


Holiday Romance

Holidays come with the added benefit because they offer the chance for one to hook up with beautiful girls. Spending the holidays in Lithuania is the perfect opportunity for you to hook up with local Lithuanian girls or even foreign girls who are also on holiday. However, Lithuania is a strongly Islamic country and religion plays a key role in the life of the citizens. This means that some acts such as public display of affection are discouraged.


Tips for Successful Relationship

Over time, we assume that our partner knows us so well that we don't need to ask for what we want. What happens when we make this assumption? Expectations are set, and just as quickly, they get deflated. Those unmet expectations can leave us questioning the viability of our partnership and connection. Keep in mind that "asking for what you want" extends to everything from emotional to sexual wants.

Create a weekly ritual to check in with each other. This can be short or long, but it begins by asking each other what worked and didn't work about the previous week and what can be done to improve things this coming week. Additionally, use this opportunity to get on the same page with your schedules, plan a date night, and talk about what you would like to see happen in the coming days, weeks, and months in your relationship.

Unless you have committed to an asexual partnership, sex and touch such as kissing, holding hands, and cuddling are vital components of a romantic relationship. How much sex a couple has is, of course, up to the particular pair of individuals, so you must discuss your ideas about it to manage any desire discrepancy.

Life and work distractions can become paramount in our minds, and that leaves little time or energy for our partner. Barring any emergencies or deadlines, we should be fully present when we are with our mate. We truly hear what they are saying (instead of pretending to listen), we leave our distractions behind, and we don't pick them up again until the sun comes up and we walk out the door.

When conflicts inevitably come up, remember to approach them thoughtfully and with a lot of kindness toward your partner and yourself. If you see the stress beginning to escalate during a conversation about a conflict, one or both of you can call a break so that cooler heads can prevail.


Love

As it was said earlier, Lithuanian girls love their families and always put them in the first place. They spend a lot of time with their relatives. So it can be cold like some kind of custom. When a couple goes to guests, friends or relatives, they usually go together. That shows that their feelings are real and their relationship is serious. It also usually happens when a couple spends an evening with relatives together. They like to spend it together, as it is like a couple of goals.

In a relationship, you have to respect each other. It is very important if it goes about a serious and real relationship. Also, do not forget to respect her friends and people she communicates with. She needs to understand that you believe her so she could believe you. It is a very good thing when you love someone.


How to Make Sure She Is the One

Falling in love is fun and beautiful and it is something most if not all of us look forward to. Before you settle for her as your girlfriend, you need to look at the bigger picture and ask yourself if she is someone you’d be comfortable growing old with. You may have had to choose her from many options that were before you so you also need to confirm to yourself that you will love her and no one else. As you settle down to get married to her, you need to ask yourself how you will build your future together.

The girl that you plan to marry should be your best friend. A friend is someone you always look forward to spending time with even when there is nothing to do. She will be ready to drop whatever she is doing and be by your side when you need them. She will understand your fears, joys, doubts and will be ready to listen to you even when you don’t have much to say. If your partner is someone you love spending time with then you can rest confident that she’ll be someone you want to commit to.

The girl for you will make you feel safe at all times. When you are in a relationship with someone, you always want to be comfortable knowing that she only has eyes for you Creating safety, connection, and intimacy in a relationship wires our systems to love deeper. If you’re thinking about marrying someone, it’s crucial you feel that this person is going to stick around.

Togo, like many other African countries, is deeply cultural. When you get married to someone, you not only marry them but you are her family and she is joining your family. Before the two of you get married, you need to have this knowledge in mind. Your girl should be willing to join your family as this relationship will play a very big role in your marriage. If your spouse is constantly fighting with your immediate family, this will put a strain on you as you will be called to always support her against your own family. Likewise, you should be ready to marry into her family with its strengths and flaws.

One of the biggest setbacks in a relationship is the lack of improvement. Making yourself better will always help the relationship thrive. Love depends on two people being willing to grow, change, and become better. When you’re willing and committed to becoming a better man for the person you love – it’s a big sign that you could be happy marrying. Love takes work and if you are both interested in improving then you are that much more likely to have a relationship that makes you both happy.

In addition to your families coming together, she will be interacting with your friends as you will be interacting with her friends. Before the two of you got to know each other, you lived separate lives with your circle of friends and acquaintances. While you may not know all of her friends or her all of your friends, there are those close friends of yours that she will be interested to know just as you will get to know her close friends. This support system helps in keeping each other accountable and understanding each other from a third party perspective.


Marriage

At least one of the individuals to be married must be either a Lithuanian citizen, a resident of Lithuania, or have Lithuanian ancestry. Two foreigners with no prior ties to Lithuania will likely not be able to meet the requirements to be married in Lithuania. The minimum age to marry is 18. To register a marriage at the registry office a fee of 20 Euros is paid. In case you want your marriage to be registered in the place that you chose by yourselves, a fee of 60 Euros is taken. Marriage is registered at least one month after the day of applying. When submitting an application, the presence of both persons is obligatory.

There is no bar to church weddings, but it is necessary to complete the civil procedure above to obtain the official marriage certificate. Church marriage with a foreigner is regulated by Church canons and should best be discussed with the Church of your choice.

Individuals wishing to get married in Lithuania need to fill out the required forms and submit them along with their passport, birth certificate, and required documents (listed below) to the Civil Registry Office (Marriage Palace). The application is submitted to that registry office where one of the future spouses or their parents has declared the place of residence.

Documents of a citizen of a foreign country (except for the passport) must be legalized or certified with an Apostille (except for the documents issued in Estonia, Russia, Latvia, Moldova and Ukraine) and translated into the Lithuanian language. The following documents are to be submitted:

• Documents certifying the identity of the person;

• Certificates of birth (in some cases not required, however, it is recommended to bring it);

• If a person who intends to contract marriage is a citizen of a foreign country, additionally a document issued by the competent authorities of his/her state certifying that there are no obstacles to his/her marriage (i.e., a certificate that a person had not contracted another, at the time still valid, marriage) must be submitted. If a citizen of a foreign state is divorced or a widower, a document issued by the competent authorities of his/her country certifying his/her divorce or the death of his ex-spouse.


Wedding

Civil wedding ceremonies are held in the Town Hall while religious ones are held in the church. Most Lithuanians are Roman Catholics. After the ceremony, it is time to take wedding photos. According to a local tradition, a special place for taking wedding photos is a bridge. A groom often carries his bride across the bride. Together they put a lock on the bridge and throw the key into the river. Previously they wrote their names on the lock.

After this kind of ritual, they go to the wedding reception. Their parents and other guests wait for them there. Both parents welcome the newlyweds with some bread, salt and two glasses of water. These symbolize the foundation of their life together.

The bride and groom are given some work to do. For example, sometimes they are sawing a log. There they show how well they function together. Everything is done under the supervision of a matchmaker or a best man. The bride and groom will not be able to take a seat. Their chairs are already occupied by another couple. Luckily it is not the real couple. A man is dressed as a bride. The groom is a woman. The problem will be solved by the matchmaker. There is a piece of cloth on his shoulder. On this cloth, you can read the following text "the best man - the best liar". A funny dialogue is started. The matchmaker must "win" the chairs where the newlyweds should sit back. After some time he succeeds and the wedding reception can begin.

The already mentioned matchmaker is a very important guy who manages the whole party. In one tradition he even teaches the groom how to kiss the bride. An important part of the wedding reception starts after midnight. All the guests sing a traditional wedding song "We wish you happy long years". During this song, parents give a specially decorated candle to the couple. The wreath of ruta is then removed from the bride's veil. The wreath is then burned.

The bride takes off her veil and gives it to the bridesmaid. The bride then puts a white scarf on her head. The groom takes a flower that was attached to his suit and gives it to the groomsman. From that moment the groom has a cap on his head. The bride and groom then jointly cut the wedding cake.


Family Life

The basis of the Lithuanian nation is the nuclear family. The number of kids has been decreasing recently; today a family of two children is the social norm. It is now acceptable for couples to forego marriage.

Lithuanian language has a multitude of words to describe obscure family relations (e.g. "kaliboba" - 4th husband, "dieveris" - husband's brother, "laigonas" - wife's brother). This signifies the importance a wider family once had but today these words are largely forgotten. Under the Soviet occupation, it was common to relocate people - therefore now relatives rarely live nearby and meet only on special occasions if at all.

Housing shortage under the Soviet occupation meant that three generations typically had to share the same apartment. This changed now and adult children usually move out (although may still be supported financially), largely breaking free from parental control.

The husband and wife usually share the income with the wife spending more. Student children are given limited allowances on family money. A family may also give money and other support to their parents and a few other relatives in dire straits. It is regarded to be dishonorable if one's parents are in poverty when that person is relatively wealthy. Moreover, it is considered equally dishonorable to put the parents into any senior facility, which are low-quality in Lithuania. However, regardless of how rich someone is, he is not expected to share very much of it with his parents: he is just expected to keep them above the poverty line and to enable them to live on their own.

Lithuanian child parenting styles and values vary greatly from family to family, and libertarian laws respect this. Any state intervention into child-rearing (which is common in the West) is generally frowned upon.
