My best guess is that these numbers will be about the same. It seems that women in the Baltics are stronger than men. Despite there macho behaviour, a lot om men are actually uneducated, countryside puss... who are to stupid to look at themselves in a mirror. They are not able to adapt to changing environment, are afraid of educated people. The only day that they respect women is on "Naistepaev" and they don't know even why...

I believe the Count should write some poetic comment. Just up his alley, this subject. I miss him. Reply to the comment answer

More than women, Latvian men are a puzzle: "And by the time women want to settle down, men are dying younger and are four times more likely to commit suicide"...then..."And then they start to use some alcohol or some gambling because they cannot solve that problem," .. and then...""He just sits in front of the TV and knows he can get a woman. And if she doesn't suit him, he will get another."... So why do Latvian men commit suicide, if it's such a paradise and then don't have to do much to find a woman??? That puzzles me... Or is it that Latvian women are all expecting money, a BMW, everyday trips at the SPA? Yes, indeed...Riga shows the same incoherent situations as New York City...The place recognized to be where people are the loneliest... Reply to the comment answer

Maybe they have bigger problems with their bank than to find a new woman .....

Or this classic:

In any case, considering the type of females and males we are referring here, may I ask the question Are We Too Stupid to Raise Our Own Kids?

We need to restore principles in our lives. We need to teach ourselves the correct principles and then pass them to our children. What one generation tolerates, the other embraces.

Teach a man correct principles and let him govern himself without any worries. Do it today!

Raivo, I wonder if you were the same guy who said that 29 year old Estonian guys are living with their parents because they spend all of their money on beer?
I started to calculate and figured out that monthly rental for an apartment will be at least 4000eek(bum's apartment). One beer costs 8eek, so for 4000eek you can get 500 beers. So all you have to do is not to drink 17 beers a day.
I suspect that no one can save so much money from beer money?
I'm waiting for further instructions.

One beer is at least 12 EEK

The numbers are nearly identical for Estonia. Estonia has actually slightly surpassed Latvia in number of women vs. men:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_sex_ratio

Used to be that Latvia was ahead.

In terms of university education, when I checked a year ago, Tartu Uni was 70% female, so more than twice as many women as men. I think Tartu Uni is a good example to use, since they teach a broad range of subjects (as opposed to looking at Tallinn Technical, though again women have surpassed men there).

Also the suicide ratio in Estonia is about 80% male vs. female. Reply to the comment answer

It looks like people do casual sex more in Baltic area than other places. Men are used to take more girls at the same time.

In a way, their sex life is not a problem. Just that the instability of relationship may be a cause of depression rather than satisfaction in life. Reply to the comment answer

It is mainly a question of health, since a lot of STD's are spread like this. Not only HIV, but parasites, Hepatitis B, HPV, Herpes, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, the list is long. and condoms are not always used over here and the government run healthcare system does not provide by default all of Vaccines that are available that protect against some viral STIs.

This is why expats have such a great time there. The game is on! Reply to the comment answer
~Rick Smith [15.10.2010, 17:01]
Only MALE expats have a good time there. The local women are hostile to female expats as they see us as competition.

""There are demands about how [men] should live. And if they cannot meet those standards, they… fall into depression," Ansis says.

"And then they start to use some alcohol or some gambling because they cannot solve that problem," he adds."

What do you want: that women should should give alcoholics a chance? Even the boys with a gambling problem?

How absurd it is, to complain that some men are not considered as potential partners, and thereby the fault is located at the selection criteria of women? How about recognizing that women are independent individuals with their own needs and requirements?

If you feel that you do not fit into the scheme, then you can work on yourself to correct it. But certainly not to blame the females and demand that they have to be guided by you.

I find it incredible how well each male problem area of life is subliminal declared as an aggressive act of malicious women. That all male problems should be solved that the women should adapt to the kindly man and subordinate to him. Even in the selection (which is then no more a choice) of their sexual partners.

Even the meta phyisician andecdote of Mr. Dace, that "the smartest girls are alone. The really beautiful girls are alone - if they are smart," states into that direction. So what Latvia needs is just dumb and beatuiful "girls" and problem is solved, right? Again, women to blame for being to smart.

How about for a change to reflect resource-oriented, what potentials there may be behind the poor men, that is currently being wasted? Would it not be an amazing surpize to discovered that also Alcoholics, Gambler, Hools and Gangsters are just guys that worries the same as the CEO of a company, only that no such offer has been submitted to them (in time)?

No .. its women to blame for being hypergamic. That means, they will only date men above them in status. Dont blame me, thats womens behaviour.

They see 50% MORE women than men in university, and a the exhibit in this article, and then cant even come to the LOGICAL conclusion of what this implies. They say .. oh no problem with this.

LOL Brilliant thinking ladies Reply to the comment answer

as a social engineer i'd make the following experiment, in all the countries of eastern Europe.
for one month the authorities should distribute alcoholics for free (any kind) 24/7. after the month the "rotten apples" will disappear with the human version of "darwinism" otherwise known of specie selection.
The same should be done with drugs in mediterranean countries, england and US. Reply to the comment answer
