as you can see, I'm new to this forum. I'm registered myself here because I'll live in Riga now until December and studying here one semester. Today my first week in Riga is over and I like the city and the people, especially the women ;) What I heard and read is true, it's unbelievable, how much beautiful and so nice dressed women walken through the city and parks! I think I have seen more beautiful women in this one week than in all years since I'm looking for girls in my home country Germany! And those few which I already meet in my university are not just beautiful, they are smart and well-educated too!
Now I understand why some guys come here and looking for cheap and quick sex (+ beer), but I find this very disrespectful! Just because latvian women... let's say show more of their curves and skin then in west-european countries and elsewhere, this doesn't mean that they are purchasable!
I think I will meet some latvian girls during the lectures in the university, but I'll treat them in a gentle way, I hope I have the chance to invite some girl to diner or some other activity to get to know each other and let some time goes by and see what may happen.
But I've got a question for the very active latvian people here in this forum. There is one girl in a coffee shop, of course she is pretty and speaks very good english and smile at me. So I would like to get to know her and the only way which I seeing right now is to give her a piece of paper with my name and mobile number. So my question is: Is this (maybe) okay for an latvian girl, would a latvian guy maybe do the same thing to get to know her or is this a big No-Go in Latvia, just give someone a mobile number? I mean I just wanna date her, nothing about sex, just go out walk in the city/park, drink a coffee is maybe in her case not such a good idea because she works with coffee, but you know just meet her and do some normal activity. Or maybe in the future by a waitress or a salesperson in a shop (by the way the galleria in old Riga is so nice!) Thanks for any help or tip in this case.
So I hope I can provide some useful comments in this forum during my time in Riga
