I've met women of Sicilian, Irish, Persian, Lebanese, Salvadorian, British, black American, Vietnamese, German, Cuban and Chinese descent whom I've been highly attracted to.

Underrated: Vietnamese
Overrated: Japanese

How can you tell the Irish more apart from the Scots and English? I did not know there was a distinct Irish look that was different from Scots and English people apart from the accent.

Of course it doesn't apply to all Irish people, but there's a general Irish look.

Most English are Germanic. Many on the West Coast of Ireland (or black Irish, whom I find among the best looking people) can trace part of their geneology to Spain. This is true of English, Scots and Welsh too but it seems more common for the Irish.
Catherine Zeta Jones (Welsh) comes to mind. Obviously language and culture will be the divider between groups on the Isles much more so than looks but I do believe there are differences.

English people are becomming increasingly diverse due to immigration. Now you see all types of people in England and UK. Infact there are tons of people now that were born there and their parents were born there but their grandparents were born in places such as India and West Indies. These people are just as British now as the Whites that were born there.

A majority of London population have origins outside of UK. In addition these days at least 80% of the population is White British in England. BBC News - 2011 Census: Rise in foreign-born residents

Yet in general for British people I find White British more attractive than White Americans in general and Black British more attractive than Black Americans.
