Estonishing Evenings LIVE: How to survive in Estonia as a man?

The Estonishing Evenings event series, supported by Estonian World, continued in Tallinn on 28 October, this time taking a closer look into the lives of Estonian men, and other men who live in Estonia.

Organised in partnership with Estonian World and the Telliskivi Creative City, the Estonishing Evenings series runs English-speaking events that host different speakers expressing their viewpoints and experiences on hot topics and matters concerning both the locals and non-natives living in Estonia.

At the October event, on Monday, 28 October, Estonishing Evenings took a closer look at the lives of Estonian men, and other men who live in Estonia. “What is it really like to be a modern man in Estonia? What are the most common stereotypes of men and how to live up to them? Is it easy to make male friends? How strong are the gender roles in Estonia? What are the differences in dating culture compared to other countries? How the native and non-native men cope with the highest number of supermodels per capita? These are the questions we’re looking answers for,” the organisers said.

The panel discussion featured two expats, Justin Petrone and Louis Zezeran, and two Estonian men, Margus Vaher and Jorgen Matsi.

Petrone is an American writer, blogger and journalist, best known for his “My Estonia” trilogy. Zezeran is an Australian stand-up comedian and co-founder of Comedy Estonia. Vaher is an Estonian singer, musician, author of the book, “Tee mehe südamesse” (“A way to a Man’s Heart”), and performer at the comedy show, “Mida mehed tahavad?” (“What Do Men Want?”). Matsi is an Estonian psychologist working as a personal coach at Pipedrive, one of the most successful Estonian startups.
