There have been many sad public stories about Lithuanian girls who discovered something very different than they expected after moving abroad (suffering abuse and losing their children after divorce due to laws preferring local citizens in custody battles). an Italian or a Spaniard) may have prevailed among Lithuanian women in the 1990s, currently such sad stories have likely outweighed it.
Furthermore, Lithuania itself is now richer (even if lagging behind the West somewhat) thus a British or American working-class salary no longer seems to be miraculous to the Lithuanian girls.
Often, the "price" such women expect is high and, on the higher tiers, may include demands for gifted cars and expensive jewelry.
Foreigners are a common target of the barracudas as well, as they are believed to have wages high enough to satisfy their tastes.Of course, all these are just stereotypes that only work for some half of the population (however, this half is disproportionately represented in the dating scene, for example, nightclubs and "Tinder").If one's expectations and qualities are different from the stereotypes, finding a right person may be harder, although, if you do, the probability of a successful long-term relationship is higher.Likewise, to a Western girl, some of the qualities some Lithuanian guys are so proud to possess may seem rather dull.Their "great cars" will likely be "just regular" by the Western standards and the same would go for their salaries.
