I am sorry but you can not speak for all Latvian Women. I am American and African American (Black and American Indian) I have dark skin and when I went to Latvia, and met my girlfriend that will soon be my wife, her family and friends did not have a problem with my color, matter of fact it waa just the oposite of what you are saying. All of her girlfriends were very complimentary of my color and actual made so many good comments about me that my girlfriend started to feel uncomfortable about the attention I was getting from her girlfriends. If you really live in Latvia, you know that men are a shortage and with most men in Latvia (Latvian and Russian) they know that they can go after many women even when they are in a relationship or married, because there is always another woman trying to pull him away from a relationship that he is presently involved.
Just like one of the people on here commented on the men, most Latvian Men are dogs (players of women) and they know that most of the women there are desparate to find a man and to get married. That is not a single stroke observation, that is a FACT. I heard the conversations of many of my girlfriend''s friends speak about the fact that they can not find a man and if they do get a man, he is 90% of the time in another relationship. Most of the women understand that they are going to have to share and still want to get married and just except the fact that this is going to happen. These men in Latvia know that they only have to put the fishing pole in the water and many women will bite at it. I have many friends that are Latvian men and they laugh about this fact that I just stated. It is amazing to see so many beautiful women that are just looking for honesty and love. I have seen many that are getting older, just get pregnant so that they can have a child and say that it is not the best situation but at least I have a kid, even if the people there will look down on her for having a kid and not being married. (example) : Before I met my future wife, she told me that so many men have come up to her and often after getting to know her professionally, there only comment was that they want affair with her. She told them that she is not like that and that is not what she wants. His response was funny but sick at the same time. He told her that she is acting old fashion and that does she want a man that is next to her all the time "eating and farting"? My girlfriend said yes that is exactly what I want and no, I will not have a affair with you. Then after men and my girlfriend started dating, she looked at her email and showed it to me when I was sitting next to her on the beach in Jurmala for a vacation. His email wrote: I hope that you have a great summer and I miss seeing you sense you left your job and no longer have to come to my office for me to sign contracts with your company, but I hope you are ok and EVEN A ICE QUEEN SHOULD BE HAPPY!! My girlfriend showed me this and she said, this is what the women of Latvia have to deal with everyday. Married men and men with girlfriends that want to have flings outside of there relationships. She said that the biggest problem is the back stabbing of women to take other men that they know are in a relationship. The dumb thing is that these same women get upset when they have a man and the man that they took from another women does the same thing to them and start to cheat with other women.
Now I will say that the Latvian women (Latvian and Russian) are loyal and they just want to have a family with a man that will stand with them and just live there lives. They want to see a man that will be by them all the time and not get drunk all the time and spend time with there women and kids. I can not say that all of the women love to cook but they know how too, and they are very family oriented. Most of the women that I have met with my girlfriend that are friends of her, love to dress to impress and they always take care of themselves. Now I know that is a broad statement that is what I have seen in my 2 years of going to Latvia and meeting her friends in a casual setting and in a party setting. Latvian women are beautiful but if you look deeper into there hearts, you will find everything that you are looking for in a wife. Of course you have the ones that are after money and if you open your eyes just for a moment, you will see the gold diggers.
As for your comments on Foreigners just looking for beautiful women and physical sweaty contact. Well that is also true but that is a broad sweeping statement that needs to be corrected. NOT ALL MEN are just there for that reason that you pointed out. Yes you have your jerks that are there for one thing but you will find that in any country. The hardest thing about dating in Latvia and having a dark tan (African American) is the older people that do not accept change. Any women that would consider dating a foreigner white or black are considered dirty or she was a prostitute and she met a man that she liked. That is the mindset in Latvia when it comes with the older generation. Not all but most. And if you go to the smaller towns which I consider just larger villiages like Liepaja. It is crazy and the looks are unwelcoming. Foreigners are just outsiders and they make it clear that they do not want you there by the looks and glares that you get. The Latvian Men are jealous because you are with one of there women, and the women see it as being to bold because after you leave, they have to live there and deal with all the rumors and back talking. That is something that me and my girlfriend had to deal with for a long time but now they have a understanding that we are together and they stopped all that stupid talk, but you have some that do not accept anything. The only time that things really started to change is when the town found out that we are getting married soon and then they started to ease up on the stupidity. Just remember going to the smaller towns, you get smaller minds. Riga is not to far from being small minded but they see more foreigners there so they have a better tolerance of what they see and just continue on there way, you will have some that will say something, but the best thing to do is to just stand your ground. Most will walk away if they see that you are serious. We spend most of our time with her daughter and son in Jurmala and we go back to Liepaja only when we are ready to go back into time.
So no, not all Foreigners are what you think, that is like saying that all the Blondes on the Blonde Parade Riga and Liepaja are stupid. Just the idea of saying that shows a lack of intelligence. But what I have said about the men in Latvia is absolutely true.
