Hello, my dear readers,
I hope you are doing well and that you are ready for the next nationality I am going to be writing about and this time they are Lithuanians!
If you are new here, make sure to check out all the men’s country guides to see how Lithuanian men compare in all categories.
In the last couple of years, I’ve been living in the north and right now I am located in Lithuania, a quite interesting country. So, without further a due let’s get started!
I will try to give you a clear picture of international dating over here, Lithuanian men’s characteristics, things to expect, and also some Lithuanian men stereotypes.
What Are the Lithuanian Men Like?
First and foremost I would like to say that dating scene in Lithuania differs from most countries in Western Europe or other places, for example in the US, so if you are among American women looking for Lithuanian men don’t get surprised if you meet a lot of single Lithuanian men.
This country is known for its people who have usually just a few partners in their lifetime, for example, 3-4 and dating aren’t that popular.
Yes, many people do it, and night clubs are the right spot to meet someone for one-night stand or some casual dating, but anything more serious requires effort, while partners are mostly met in school, at work or through friends, as usual.
It is important to know that people around you might be quite reserved and cold, so it could be hard to really get to know Lithuanian guys, but this is mostly in the beginning, as they need to feel like they can trust you.
Typical Lithuanian men are very hardworking and like to provide for their family, thus many of them even leave the country and work abroad to do so, which is a trait I admire deeply.
Lithuanian males have really nice manner, and I am saying this from my personal experience, they are trustworthy and you can truly rely on them. I will tell you more about it below.
What Physical Traits Distinguish Lithuanian Men from Other Men
Just like men from other Baltic countries – Estonia, Latvia, and then Finland, Sweden and Norway in the north, guys here are pretty much blonde and have gorgeous blue or grey eyes.
Now, this is also one of the typical Lithuanian guys stereotypes, as there are many men with darker hair and eye color as well.
Their skin is quite fair and they are in very good shape. The average height is around 5’ 7’’ and the weight around 167 lbs.
They are quite slim, and not only men but women as well and this is for two reasons: firstly, they eat very well and high-quality food, such as lots of fish and secondly physical appearance matters quite a bit here, so people but lots of effort in it.
So, if you are thinking about visiting or moving to Lithuania, be prepared to be surrounded by many hot Lithuanian guys.
Lithuanian Men Style
All these sexy Lithuanian guys love to dress well and they pay a lot of attention to what they are wearing, how well they smell, what their hair is like, etc.
What I noticed is that the whole nation is devoted to looking good, and failing to do so is looked down upon.
Let’s say it like this: if you go out on the streets looking messy, or just wearing sweatpants and a hoodie can make people easily things that you are a very messy and lazy person.
This is also why women dress up quite a bit, wear heavier makeup during the day and often do their hair.
Thus, if you are interested in dating a Lithuanian guy, please make sure to look your best or at least “decent” when you are outside and trying to meet someone because half of your whole image is what you wear and look like.
Now, this might sound wrong, but there are many countries where people pay a lot of attention to their appearance and aren’t laid back and where anything to the streets, like in the US for example, and it just takes a bit time to get used to it.
Wearing jeans, khaki pants, shirts, leather jackets, parkas in winter, anything goes, as long as it looks nice and stylish.
Additional Rating – The Tinder 1000 Swipe Rating
On top of the physical trait ratings for Lithuanian men, we have also created our own additional rating from the Lithuanian men we see on Tinder. We call it the 1,000 Tinder swipe rating. It is extremely accurate and gives a very good overall picture of the men and how attractive they are.
This is how it works.
We swiped through 1000 different profiles in all of the major cities of Lithuania and took note of how many handsome men there are. We jotted down how many 8’s, 9’s and 10’s there are based on their profile pictures. Here is a quick breakdown.
- 0-100 is poor
- 100-200 is OK
- 200-300 is Good
- 300 – 400 Is Incredible
- 400 + is Mindblowing (There are only a few of these)
With a Tinder Plus subscription, you can teleport to anywhere in the world and swipe for yourself. Find out more below In the section about how to meet Lithuanian men. Also, make sure to check out my other country guides to see how their Tinder scores compare.
Character Traits that Make Lithuanian Men Stand Out
1. Gentlemen rating
Dating Lithuanian men is nice for several reasons, and one of them is that they are true gentlemen, which I didn’t doubt, but seeing it, in reality, is quite nice.
I went out with several of them before I began a relationship and all of them had nice manners ad behaved like gentlemen are expected to.
They all held my coat when we left restaurants, held the door for me, moved the chair and were quite pleasant.
I enjoyed the dates as we talked, laughed and some of them were even quite relaxed, which I didn’t expect because I found people here to be quite reserved in the beginning.
The only “issue” that I had was with two of them who were quite judgmental, and I think the reason for this was my looks because at that time I still haven’t assimilated into the culture.
I guess I wasn’t dressed up enough for an evening date, so I felt they looked at me strangely when we met.
However, this isn’t that big of a deal, as everything went just fine afterward. So when it comes to international dating and wishing to meet a gentleman, don’t worry, you will be able to do so over here.
If you are wondering what are Lithuanian men like, I would say that there are no issues with integrity.
I feel like a lot of people have strong moral principles, which shows in their everyday lives. People are quite honest, humble and work hard to provide for their families.
As I already said, it is very common for men to even go to neighboring countries to work to give the best to their loved ones.
I saw this trait of their first hand with one of the guys I dated for a short period.
He made a mistake at work, I won’t get into much detail, however, someone else was blamed for it and he had two reasons: to remain silent and save himself or to do the right thing and he chose the latter.
He said he was the one who wronged, as he couldn’t live with the guilt.
That amazed me a lot, as many people wouldn’t be brave enough to do it.
Lithuanian dating country is a bit different from what most people are used to and as I said, they have only a few partners in life, both relationship partners and sexual ones, which means one night stands aren’t that common.
Of course, this depends on person to person, but if I had to generalize, I would say that they are picky and stay with one person for much longer than one would expect.
Families often stay together and it feels they are quite loyal.
I was talking the other day with a few friends and I told them about my other foreign friends, Suddenly, we started talking about cheating, when I mentioned that I knew people who had done it and oh boy, did they start judging them and get quite emotional.
Also, I don’t think I was cheated on by the guys that I was seeing, so I think it’s safe to say that you should trust your (future) Lithuanian boyfriend.
As honesty belongs to integrity I give it also a very high grade, as I’ve seen it in action.
However, this one has two sides. People are quite honest and have a moral compass in their lives, however, it depends on how well they know you.
Since they are quite introvert and reserved when you first meet them, you can expect men to be a bit cold and they won’t tell you things honestly.
For example, if you don’t fit in, don’t wear “appropriate clothes”, do things differently or stand out in any other way, you won’t be told so.
Typical Lithuanian guys will let you figure it out yourself. An exception is if you already know someone from this country, who will then “teach” you everything and introduce to their friends.
Also, if you are foreign, he might act as if he has a lot of money and try to swipe you off your feet with a bit false picture about himself.
But, don’t get this wrong, he probably just likes you a lot and also, it doesn’t last long, since you will realize how things and the economy here are.
5. How Protective They Are?
If you are wondering what are Lithuanian guys like I would say quite protective.
Since they spend much time with the same person in a relationship, they protect them a lot and love to see that they are safe and taken care of.
You can see this also by their eagerness to even leave the country and their family to work abroad to provide for them, since the economy in Lithuania isn’t that developed, and people are quite often angry at the government and the system.
Also, one of the Lithuanian guy dating tips is to know that they can be overly protective and you might feel like he wishes to know everything about where you are and with whom, which might be tricky in international dating since many women love to be independent.
6. Are they Resourceful?
Well, I find these sexy Lithuanian men to be resourceful probably because they aren’t as wealthy as they would like to be and they sometimes like to make it look like they could buy you stars and the moon.
Since they care very much about physical appearance, but also about the social one, it is important for them to hold a certain image, so they will take you to expensive restaurants, buy nice things and gifts, even though they don’t possess that kind of money, but will also work hard to get it.
I would say that the answer to the question: “what is Lithuanian men like” would be pretty mature, but not quite.
On one hand, they behave like real men and know what is “expected” of them: they work hard, provide for their families, they are quite honest, loyal and calm.
However, on the other hand, the whole “I need to look my best and as if I have lots of money” attitude shows the immaturity, because it sometimes rules their lives, and this goes way back to the Soviet past when everyone looked at everyone and when superficial things made a huge difference.
When you meet Lithuanian men you will see how confident they mostly are: these men look very good, they are fit and aware of it and the same goes for women, so they all create quite a combination.
They behave as gentlemen and are open to dating and showing you that they like you.
However, since women are getting more independent and battle for gender equality, men are somewhat stepping down from their role of making the first move and this could be wrongly interpreted as lack of self-confidence.
Also, Lithuanian men in bed are quite good if you ask me and I was happy to discover that they love to make you feel good and make sure you enjoy the experience.
9. Are They Friendly or Reserved?
Well, this is quite an easy question and the answer is reserved. People in the Baltic region are generally thought to be quite reserved and introvert, especially if there are unknown people around.
I would say that the roof of this trait goes back to Soviet history as well since people had to be careful what they say and about whom they talk.
This is why it might feel very hard to make guys over here open up and trust you because you need to earn it. One of the Lithuanian men dating tips would be to be very patient and persistent and show with it how trustworthy you are.
Lithuanian men will make you happy with their easy going personalities, which makes them very attractive to women.
Read on to know more about the good side and the not too good side of these men.
Pros and Cons of Dating a Lithuanian man
They are very protective
As you are interested in dating a Lithuanian man you can rest assured that you will be protected.
They will make sure you are and feel safe around them, they will ask where you are going and with whom especially at night and if you are alone, they will make sure you get home safely and all of this might make you even feel you are overly protective since they take good care of their partners.
They are so self-confident
Dating Lithuanian guys are amazing because they are very self-confident because they are usually satisfied with their looks and this shows in a way that they radiate good energy.
If you are interested in adventures you can rest assured that you will meet a lot of handsome Lithuanian men by going to night clubs and they will make sure you know they are interested!
They try too hard
I found this to be very true and it might be annoying, especially when it comes to international dating between a Lithuanian man and a foreign woman.
They naturally tend to amaze you with their looks, wardrobe and style, and of course money, but it often doesn’t work, as foreign women mostly have more money than them, at that reveals their strategy easily.
This is why dating between a Lithuanian woman and a foreign man works much better since they look for certain standards and financial support that those men can provide 100% without pretending.
They can be quite reserved
This can be a great downfall that depends mostly on you as a person. If you are calm, patient and persistent just like these hot Lithuanian men are, then this will not stop you from getting to know them, however, if you are quite the opposite, then learning about men here could feel like hitting a wall and can feel impossible.

How to Make a Lithuanian Man Fall in Love with You
Enjoy an outdoor activity
The best answer on how to meet Lithuanian men and make them fall in love with you is to love nature and spending time in it.
There is a special connection between in and Baltic region nations who love outdoor activities such as walking, hiking, skiing, snowboarding, etc.
Ask about their country
One of the best tips for dating a Lithuanian man successfully is to ask about the country and look for as much information as possible because they are huge patriots.
Yes, they will complain about the regime and remember better times, or tell stories, but deep down they love where they come from and will love to see how interested you are.
Dress well and do makeup
I know how horrible it might sound to hear this or to know that even weight may matter a lot, or that not women without makeup may be seen as slobs and very lazy, however, that is how things are.
If you wish to meet Lithuanian guys and have them fall in love then please make sure you look cute and dolled up, because they will do “their” part as well, and again, who doesn’t feel great when looking great? J
