More pics! This thread needs more pics. And hopefully, someone could find some dark-haired guys with longer hair. The hair's too short on that first bunch of guys. Wavy hair is nice.

When I was younger, I liked tall blond and blue eyed - but the adult me fell hard for short dark and handsome!

They all look a little too feminine for me...I like rough "real" men with goatees or beards, tattoos, etc =) Their eyebrows should never be arched more than mine and if they shave their bodies more than I do....ummm no thankyou. lol

I actually kind of like darker hair with light eyes and a medium to olive complexion. I have dated men with various hair and eye colors, though. Even if I notice the dark-haired light-eyed guys first, the personality is what wins me over in the end.

Of these guys I only like 1, 4, & 5. I love long hair on men, like #2, but don't care for this one's face.

Can't answer the poll because I don't have a favorite anymore. I used to be particularly attracted to blonde men but now I just like ALL types.

Look 1: Blonde White men with blue or green eyes





Look 2: Men with Black hair, Brown eyes, and a tanned skin tone that is somewhat Olive or Light Brown. Can range from White males with very dark features like Joseph Gordon Levitt to Latino men or Brown men (Persians, Indians with a lighter complexion. Black men and Asian men do not necessarily fall into this category. Here are pictures of the kind of looks I am talking about.






Here are my thoughts.


I know they say "Tall Dark and Handsome" but I think that what women find attractive has to do with what media tells them is attractive. It is no question that most actors like Brad Pitt or Leonardo DiCaprio are Blonde and White. So generally I think that Blonde White men are the preference for most women in America simply because the media promotes them much more than their darker counterparts.

I am going to vote Category 1 based on personal experience.
First, you opened with arguably the best looking man currently alive. Alex Pettyfer, is beautiful and as he is aging getting vaguely sexy.

Second, can I just say "yes"? They are all good looking and physically attractive. Especially Jay Hernandez.

All of the above, can I have one of each please?

Incidentally my husband I guess is a wildcard in this dichotomy. A ginger, with hazel eyes. Guess I go for all types, huh?

Something just doesn't add up for this poll to be the way it would be.

Maybe older women love swarthy men while younger women prefer the Blonde look in men.
You don't know American life very well, judging by your thread in the World forum. The appeal of darker men has nothing to do with a woman's age.
