Let's get one thing straight right off the bat, I am not writing this thread to open discussion to childish banter regarding gender differences. What I am doing is trying to see how many men have the same views as me, and if they would be willing to participate in a future project. I understand that America has some great women, and not all Women fit into the information below. However, there is a social trend that is ever increasing, and one incident for a "great" women does not make up for the 1000 who aren't so great.

I am 26 years old and fortunately have been lucky enough to have had the opportunity to travel the world since I was 17. It started when I signed with Wilhelmina and was required to travel to different modeling markets. It opened me up to many different cultures. At first I was too young to really understand the social differences, however, as my experiences grew both here and far I began to take notice big time.

Regardless of what women believe, here in the west we are having a huge social problem. Men and women, especially women, do not seem to understand what they want. They seem to juggle between different identities hoping to have it all, or maybe none.

At 26, about to graduate from a major University with a B.S in Computer Science, good looking, nice and caring, yet I still have problems finding a Women for a serious relationship here in the States. This is something my European friends said would never happen there.

Are European Women easier to approach?
At first I thought the sparks that constantly flew between me and European women were just due to the travel experience. Then I came to notice that even when I met students studying overseas from Europe that the spark was still there. When I approach European women, they are so much more inviting. They expect you to initiate, however, it is not like walking up to a wall of ice and having to chisel your way through to see what’s on the other side. I have noticed American women tend to be extremely distant.

Dating norms, so we want to be equal yet these remain?
Why am I still forced to pay for the dinner of a woman who constantly reminds me of her independent status? We are so confused on what to do when it comes to dating, we lose concentration of what’s most important, a connection. With European Women, the rules tend to be more set in stone. I feel like I am actually getting to know someone, rather than the feeling that I am making a business deal.

Materialistic, vapid, and misandrist attitudes. I cannot get over how materialistic and vapid American women can be. When it comes to music, TV, movies, and consumer consumption this becomes so evident. Most malls are dedicated to women. Macy's and Bloomingdale's often have levels dedicated to just women. The music industry’s most vapid and fake artists such as Britney Spears, Justin Beiber(teens I know), Keysha, all cater to the female market. The Hollywood industry is filled with Misandry. Movies depict male bashing and violence towards men as a joke. If these were switched and the same depicted towards women there would be uproar. I remember when I was a kid and watching Lorena Bobbitt on a talk show on CBS laughing about cutting her husband’s penis off. All the women in the crowd were laughing. If a man who has been hurt by a women and decides to cut off her clitoris, would he be on a talk show laughing about it?

The Divorce and Child custody laws here in the States are extremely bias, and so is the attitude of the women regarding them. This makes marriage look extremely unattractive.

Guys, with all these things in mind, would you rather meet a European Women over an American?

If there was an organization providing a system where you could meet college educated, sincere European Women would you take part in it for a small fee?

like I said, I made this post for adults. I knew the first response from many would be regarding mail order brides. Mail order brides is a sham. It is for greedy American men who want a trophy wife, and gold digging green card seeking European women. Just because I am tired of a negative social trend does not mean that I want to take part in this. I am talking about an organization of men and women who come together seeking one goal. Not a cheesy website filled with profiles regarding long walks on the beach.

Can you be more specific on which European women? Different countries have very different women.

Yes Cindy you are right. I get along best with Scandinavian women. French and Italian women are wonderful too, but I don't get along with too many men in those countries. The only European women that I really don't feel this way about are English women. They generally seem to have a lot of the same tendencies as American women.

I was born and raised just outside of Montréal. I've been in the United States for 4 years, next month. I know not all women here are like that, but many have entitlement complexes, are self-absorbed, and want as much as possible while giving as little as possible.

As though Canadian women are much different.

Speaking as a European, I can't say I'm surprised if it's the case.

There seems to be a sense of "entitlement" which comes from many women on this board.
(Note, not all, so don't all take the hump !)

When I hear discussion on "rules" of dating, or how women expect to be approached, and treated during dating, I have to thank my lucky stars that I don't live in the USA !!!
If I did, I think I might be single for a good long time.

Things do seem to be a little more "relaxed" over here
