I think it has more to do with sex appeal. The ability to cook and clean aren't the only things a man look for you know. Besides, the cooking and cleaning ends up being shared in my household anyway.

I'm all for women's lib giving women more of a voice in society, but I don't think women should do EVERYTHING a man does. Let's face it. Men are UGLY. The way we move, the way we dress, the things we do, etc. UGLY !! The feminist movement seems to have turned into the "how to be a man" movement. The greatest dis-service to women ever !!

A beautiful european or hot latina, they know how to move, dress, behave, etc. !! I don't buy the "grass is greener on the otherside" argument either.

i dont know, i see this escalating into a men vs. women type post.. and by post i mean arguement. but as for my opinoin...

its obvious why men like women and vice versa, theres millions of reasons, but it all boils down to instinct, drive... and whats above that, which is personality, love, and everything that appeals to our hearts and minds.. so whats the real arguement?
i think there are just as many gorgeus women in USA as anywhere else, i think it is the mindset.. you travel somewhere new, everything and everyone in it is new. in your head, a beautiful woman is that much more beautiful becuase its something different and it almost seems like some wild chance to meet her. its all in your head. if you go to a country and hate it ( i dont know how ) the women are going to be just as good looking as women back home..

like ive always said, its all in your head.
its all about mindset.

love ya,
Evan

Why whenever "domesitc duties" are concerned, do they start and stop at the walls of the house? As I've said to my wife, if you want me to vaccuum the house, clean the bathroom, etc. (which I'm more than happy to do), then you must assist me by mowing the lawn, sweeping up, raking leaves, weeding the garden, and cleaning the cars (all of this is a weekly task, especially in summer). Oh, and you can take care of the finance also if you like.

I didn't say this to her to get into an argument, or to start some "man vs woman" crap. It's just that there is more to "running a house" than the internal stuff.

Anyway, she does most of the indoorsy stuff and I do most of the outdoorsy - with us both doing a bit of each.

Question for men indeed! HUMP :( here's me thinking we're all just one happy family...

... back to your original question - I have heard this too but you've got to see it that US and to be fair most Westernised women may be a little more spoilt than Eastern women because of the culture and money in our countries. It can stop people realising what's important and this can make them appear uptight and 'ugly...

In my opinion it's the attitude's that makes someone attractive or not... (for example and sorry to bring the football in again but its on my mind take Ronaldo - a good looking lad but his attitude makes him so so so ugly that his looks dont matter anymore)

Its been said a lot that it's in the mind and in the eye of the beholder... but as a rule (and lads you'd do well to remember this) all women are beautiful

Excuses, excuses......;)

It's not all attitude. A 600lb woman with a face full of pimples and crazy hair is NOT sexy no matter what attitude. But I agree, a great attitude can bring up the sex appeal of anyone at least 50% ! It all comes down to understanding and communicating with the opposite sex. Too much Walt Disney, too little Dr. Sue Joe Hansen.....

He said, she said, bull****!

people are all colours, shapes, and sizes! this also matches they're personality. I dont think you can make such a simple judgement.

Sounds like a topic I frequently discuss with my 20 and 30 something single aussie mates quite frequently, even though I'm one of those who is happily attached.

I prefer to be with your more traditional woman who will be a woman rather than try to be a man only because society dictates to them that women need to be men (Western countries). I prefer to have relationships with non-feminists as I find the feminist viewpoint just a weeeeeee bit too hardline these days. It has gone from trying to give equal rights to women to being how to put down men and make the feel like trash. This is just my take on the whole situation. I also feel that western women tend to have much higher standards generally and hence this is the reason why there are many older grumpier single men in western countries these days. Most men where I live need to really have the complete package (looks, money, status) to be considered for a relationship by a single woman. A by-product of feminism and homosexuality? I think so but these are just my beliefs although they may not be 100% true.

This is why I prefer the Latina or Asian lady. My girlfriend is a Latina girl (from Colombia) and although my mates sometimes give me crap about that it's all done in fun and they respect my choice.

Personally I also find latinas and asian ladies to be better looking in general though, as there are some really good looking ladies from other regions and some very bad looking asians and latinas.

If I have offended anyone with my post I do apologise, but I always like to say what I think.

When I have talked to guys who have been or lived in south america, eastern europe, or asia most seem to end up telling me the same thing. They end up telling me that the women in those regions have a better attitude, and are more feminine than women in america. I have heard this so many times and it always made me wonder if it was true or if it was just their imagination. So I am curious as to what you guys here think about this.

Always a touchy subject:).
I think as with all things different people like different things, and some men like some women and others don't. As to wether girls in Asia, SA and Eastern Europe are more feminine depends on what you consider feminine. In a "classic sense" in my opinion more girls in these countries dress and behave more feminine, as these are more conservative countries with more clearly defined gender roles. Of course girls in the west can be very feminine and vice versa, but overall i think there's some thruth to what you have heard.
