RatingLooks Nightlife in general: 3 / 5

If we talk particularly about Riga, it has an incredible nightlife. Clubs, bars, pubs, and lounges are spread all over the city that entertains thousands of people daily. But, other cities don't have a nightlife worth appreciation. Cities have a decent nightlife, but you cannot label them as great or excellent. Moreover, if your aim is to pick up girls, they are not recommended at all. Therefore, Latvia as a country is not known for its nightlife because no city except Riga has a nightlife worth a mention.

Mature Ladies and Cougars

Chances of getting laid with mature women and cougars are higher compared to young girls. The reason is obvious and applies to all western countries. Mature women are much more open-minded and polite. Most of the women are employed and independent and thus consider themselves as a person who can have choices to have sex with whoever they want. Thus, many mature women in these countries engage in multiple small casual relationships. You can get massive success with mature women if you know where to find them and how to intrigue and impress them. Mature women like healthy compliments. If you are good at doing so, you are good to go.
