Characteristics of typical Latvian woman
Typical portrait of Latvian woman is somewhere between appearance of Baltic women. Those usually are tall, pretty women with light hair color, starting from pale white, ending with blond or slightly grey. The figure of typical Latvian woman is slim. The eyes are blue, grey or green. Must say that imagine girl of particular type when you think of Latvian woman could not be right as there are many people who settled in Latvia from the countries of former Soviet Union and now people of European Union come for living in Latvia. These all reasons influence general appearance of Latvian woman. Also take into consideration of modern trends where women like to die their hair in different colors. Because of that typical Latvian woman could have dark or even green hair.
A lot depend also on the generation. The meaning of typical Latvian woman is very blur nowadays. Young girls prefer to look like their counterparts in other countries and use the same make up, wear the same clothes, listen to the same music and follow the same ideas. If we think of appearance of Latvian woman in her 40’s, she could look rather gorgeous, with nice style, proper make up, elegant clothes and shoes. Such women would never leave you indifferent. When we are talking about old Latvian women, such a “granny style”, she could look rather modest, but with taste and if it is rural area this could be some traditional elements of clothes or traditional costume.
Woman it is not only appearance, although it is one of the most important parts of women’s’ nature. When we imply features common for Latvian women, wisdom would we one of them. Usually wisdom is something that older people have, because they have life experience. Here I would speak about different type of wisdom. In lies in Latvian woman’s understanding and attitude to life, including attitude to the family, to the moral values and to her own place in the world. Latvian woman knows how to cope with differences. Her decision would be always wise, appropriate for everyone, but she would never be in hurry.
Latvian woman is really gorgeous in many aspects. What only can you see when observing her attitude to kids. She has time for everything, she works the same period of time as her husband, but somehow she finds time to check the home task of elder daughter and take the son from the kindergarten on the way home and husband would feel tired lying on the couch. But this is not the end. Such woman would try to keep everything in the house clean, no jokes. She has on the control does her husband have clean and ironed shirt to wear for work tomorrow. Not every man could “suffer” such control. But it only seems hard at first. Within some time he gets used to such flow of things and his life becomes more planned and he controls more and has time for more.
Typical behavior of Latvian woman is love and hospitality, but if there is something to argue about she would surely stand on what she supposes to be important to her and defend her point of view. There are many cases where we can see perfect possession of Latvian woman in the family where man does not notice this and keeps thinking he is the head of the family and he decides what to do. This is the case where man is the head and woman is the neck and the neck turns the head where she wants. Great plus of such “Latvian woman family governing”, I call it, is that it is unnoticeable, light and what is important, has positive influence on husband, kids and family in general.
Latvian woman is not that cute as you may assume. I mean, she likes to be the center of the universe for her man and she demands attention. She can do many things, but only if she would like to, if she is in the proper mood and this mood is created by man. Latvian woman demands equality in many things. This is not quiet often ready for all Eastern European women. Maybe she is not that much emancipated as women of west and more family oriented, but it does not mean she would be fully focused on man and kids. She demands attention, personal space at home and at work, she needs to have time to improve herself. That’s who she is, typical modern Latvian women as I see.
