Latvia's Man Shortage

Good Luck Finding a Guy in Latvia!

Even wearing red, a color proven to attract men, can't help women in Latvia find a decent date. The European country has eight percent more women than men, and guys between ages 30 and 40 have a mortality rate three times higher than their female counterparts. Basically, the whole country is like a small liberal arts college with an imbalanced male to female ratio.

In the country of about two million people, men are more likely to commit suicide or die due to reckless driving, alcoholism, or workplace accidents. While men are out living dangerous lives, women are in school — 50 percent more women are enrolled in university than men. I'm sure every guy on campus must have an easy time finding a date.

The country's popular sex columnist explains the depressing consequences: "A man, having all this choice, doesn't need to be very perfect. 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."
