Go To A Random Place And Ask For A Cold One

If you are in Eastern Europe, asking for a beer at any establishment means that you are asking for whatever local brew they have. You don’t have to be specific with your order which is great.

You may be tempted to grab a beer from the bigger companies, go ahead. There’s nothing wrong with that, but make sure that you don’t count out the smaller breweries. You can ask around where you can get a taste of local beers from locals themselves. They’ll know far more than any online resource you come across.

The Reason Why Online Dating Works Best For Men

When it comes to asking if online dating works or not, there is no doubt that people who have tried it before will say yes. Even though most of these online daters probably meet their dates through dating apps – a less traditional means, digitally speaking – it doesn’t take away from the fact that they are still meeting people. So, online dating is effective. But, Scott Solomon, Rice University Evolutionary Biologist, has his opinion about online dating working better for men.

Find Out Why Online Dating Works Best For The Male Species

The answer can be found in a species process of choosing a mate and in evolution. According to Solomon, it is a fact that the way each species choose their partner has an effect on their evolution. He observes this fact in how people date today, but there’s a slight difference. How we choose our partner may have a different effect for men and women.

We have to admit that online dating has undergone a drastic change. We used to think that online dating was revolutionary enough, but dating apps have proven that there’s still room for online dating to develop. In turn, how we choose our partner has also developed and this is what Solomon is saying.

We Give You Statistics

This is interesting because we recently wrote an article about what people expect from a first date. It doesn’t exactly talk about if online dating works or not, but the statistics, as well as some results, might be of interest to you.

The most significant result that we can connect with today’s topic is this: males value physical attraction first when selecting dates. Women, on the other hand, value quality conversation. The second thing that males value when choosing dates is quality conversations while for females, it is a physical attraction.

That seems to validate what Solomon stated, but with a little difference. Instead of women valuing just quality conversations, Solomon believes that women have evolved into choosing their mate based on a number of different factors including smell. These factors may not be easily accessible when you’re online dating, hence women might find it more difficult to date online.

What Does This Mean For You

Although an expert is saying that online dating works better for men, it doesn’t mean that it will never work for you if you are a woman. It can be easier for men but if you approach your selection process systematically, you can still be successful at online dating. To the men who are reading this, don’t forget to get to know the women you meet online. Don’t base your choices on looks alone.

How Does Eastern Europe Celebrate Valentine’s Day?

In specific countries in Asia, people celebrate Valentine’s Day in an unusual way. In Japan and Korea, for example, it is the ladies’ obligation to buy chocolates and tiny gifts to give to the men in their lives. The roles reverse a month after when it is the gentlemen’s turn to do the buying and wooing. It may be strange to us, but it is a tradition to the Asian countries mentioned. Have you ever wondered if there are similar unusual Valentines Day traditions in Eastern Europe? We’re going to find out today.

Different Ways To Celebrate Valentine’s Day In Eastern Europe

Like the unusual practices of specific Asian countries, specific Eastern European countries also their unique way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. And, it’s nothing like going on a date with or receiving flowers and chocolates.


Worldwide, February 14th is known as a day to celebrate love. But, in Slovenia, it is a day to work the fields. “Zdravko” or St Valentine, is one of Slovenia’s patron saints of spring. When his day comes, it’s the right moment to work the fields and the vineyards. Or at least it used to be. Slovenians follow their saying that St Valentine brings the keys of roots, meaning that nature is ready to awaken. Don’t worry about celebrating the day of love because in Slovenia it is celebrated on March 12th, on St Gregory’s Day.


In Estonia, they do celebrate Valentine’s Day, but it’s less about love and more about friendship. February 14th is known as Sõbrapäev which translates to “Friends’ Day”. Everyone in different communities in Estonia participates in this celebration. Much like how Valentines is celebrated in the West, Estonians decorate their houses and places of business with bright colored ribbons, signs and stickers. They also have music festivals and markets to commemorate the day.


Last Eastern European country on this list is Romania. Instead of celebrating the day of love on February 14th, Romania celebrates it 10 days after. On February 24th, the “Dragobete” festival is celebrated. It is treated as a day for lovers as well as a day that marks the beginning of spring. Traditionally, boys and girls from a community will pick flowers together. There are also a number of beliefs that lovers practice during Dragobete. One is when a lover steps on the toes of his or her partner on the day of Dragobete to make him or her the dominant person in the relationship.
