Provocative - I am sure. And I will certainly get loads of bad replies (if any).

But here's my point:
Have been in Houston now for say a month. Great place, incredibly nice and friendly people, good food (hard to control my weight), superb beers, and nice and green. And while the rest of the country is suffering from the bursted bubble of inflated borrowing and chauvinism, this city is still doing fine. Thus: completely underrated - and should start leading the scene as a city that is now on top of the food chain, so to speak.

But here's what really bothers me: there is so much talk about the gorgeous Texas women.
But in my four weeks here, to be really honest (and it hurts my soul to say this) - I haven't seen ONE! NONE! NIL!
Hey - and I don't mind if half of the body is fake - at least something to look at, and maybe utter a sigh of pleasure when laying eyes on a beautiful person.

I am sure that I have been to the wrong places: hunting up and down downtown, midtown, etc.. - and thus I am convinced (and hope y'all can help me on this one) that I simply must find the right place.

They must be somewhere out there!!!
But where??

Or is it all a myth?

Am I standing at the shores of Loch Ness, waiting for the Nessie to appear - but there's not more than a couple of friendly ducks and swans in the pond waitng to snatch a piece of bread?

Hope not.....

You must be looking for big hair....check the Dallas forum!
Now I don't know what you look like, but it could also be that they're running from you! I kid, I kid!

It depends on what you like. One thing I've noticed at the what many people consider overweight in other cities, people view as passable and in some cases attractive in some Texas cities. (In Boston, people tend to like their girls thinner and more fair skinned if you get my drift.)

Not a myth and there are plenty to be found in the places you listed. Maybe you just have very high standards. Can't fault you for that. But I find plenty of beautiful ladies here - my wife being at the top of the list (it's true but also in case she reads this thread... lol)

@ theSUBlime: hey I'm a good looking guy - well - that's my view (and what I say to myself after a couple of beers, looking into the mirror - guess not very objective).
But you're right - I might just see their backs while their escaping - like chasing Geishas in Kyoto.
I'll wear a brown paper bag on my head this Saturday night - might be more successful, ha ha ha....

Wow I think me and you are on the opposite of the spectrum. Pretty much anywhere I go I see beautiful women. My fiance is beautiful and I once got in trouble with her cause she caught me looking...I know bad me. I see them at the mall..the gym..the grocery store and etc.

There are no attractive women in downtown or midtown. You must be a permanent resident of Texas before you get to view the prime cuts. Just like getting to know your butcher.
