I don't blame them too much. I mean, yes as soon as they hear you have $$$ ... but think about their situation, a place with no hope. I don't blame them, but want nothing to do with them ...

I spent a year living in Turkey, and a couple of months of that in Istanbul, which IMO is the worlds best kept secret WRT beautiful women. The place is full of them.

You don't need to warn me, I know many Eastern European women from Ekaterinaburg through to Prague. I know what they are capable of but they are no more capable than women in any other geographical area. The romantic image men in the West have of Eastern European women is built on the shattered dreams of a lack of romance with their own most of the time. You are correct it is skin deep. The reliance upon an image in ones mind to help form a positive attitude towards someone else is flawed and dangerous. Anyone who thinks it is discernibly different anywhere else in the world is in for a shock.

It is true, the poorer the European country is, the more beautiful their girls tend to be!! While I was at school, there were a couple of Turkish girls wearing the burka and I was only able to see their face and skin, but what I was able to see was a pure masterpiece.

It was on the newspaper that Usain Bolt, who won three gold medals at 2012 London Olympics, received a visit from three Swedish women's handball team at 3AM, and he posted a picture of him and the visiting Swedish handball players in his bedroom on twitter

http://goo.gl/4jPHB

And all the guys made jealous comments such as, "lucky b****rd, unless he is homosexual, it is obvious what he did with the three Swedish girls in his bedroom at 3AM" or "Superstar black athletes always get to have sex with beautiful white women" or "Three Swedish females!! The headline should have read, Usain Bolt did what any guy must have done in that situation"

The three Swedish handball players are

Isabelle Gulldén, Jamina Roberts and Ulrika Ĺgren

http://goo.gl/1o05V

Jamina Roberts is not ethnically Swedish. She has a dark skin and her last name, "Roberts", is not a typical Swedish last name.

And I might be able to give Isabelle Gulldén 7 out of 10, but I can never give her 8 and I do not even want to attempt to give Roberts and Ulrika a specific score. If Usain thought those three ladies were beautiful, then that's fine, but to be honest I doubt I will be bragging about it if I spend an evening with Roberts and Ulrika.

Photos of Ulrika -

Photos of Roberts -

If most young women in Sweden look like Ulrika, I am sure I won't ever visit Sweden.

I live in Canada and I see people of all nationalities and it is very common, to be invited to a dinner party, and find out that everyone at the dinner party was born in a different country. There is nothing wrong with recognizing the beauty of a woman and asking where she was born!!

I live in Australia and technically we are all (99%) immigrants (boat people actually). I never said there was anything wrong with asking someone were they were born.

It is logical from the right perspective.

Your girlfriend or wife must always be the most beautiful woman in the world.

I like the way you think. That's a very good prospective to have.

Beauty is very subjective so I wont name a specific City (like Miami, Rio de Janeiro, London, Tokyo, Rome, St. Petersburg, Paris, Madrid, Istanbul, Gurgaon), but the Southern Pacific Islands sure seen to have some incredibly beautiful women.

I like'em tall, I like'em small, I like'em all
