I think the British being unattractive stereotype if it does exist has less to do with appearance but more to do so with attitude. We are so used to seeing the British people as being somehow uptight and condescending towards other nationalities. Not to mention a lot have a superiority complex towards other groups. That alone has stopped me from viewing British people as being attractive but IT IS NOT the physical appearance.

Like overall I have found Europeans who are from Germany, Spain, or Italy to be more welcoming which plays a role too. The British are stereotyped as having this cold demeanor to them which can turn some people off. Also I have found that they are quite set on shoving the whole "mixed race is attractive and everyone else is ugly" belief down people's throats.

Again, it has nothing to do with physical appearance for me.

Let me put it this way, if I was to see an attractive women who was say a brunette with a tan and I found out she was Italian, I would approach her and compliment.

If that SAME EXACT woman was English (assuming I knew), I would ignore her.

Yeah, it took some getting used to... I'm mostly-Swedish ethnically, but am often taken as being Russian - especially by Russian folks. At one of the grocers I'd always go to, there was a very pretty Kazakh gal who was probably around 5'10-5'11 or so, had super-long dark brown hair, and was just stunning... the first few times I came in, she and the blonde Russian girl there would greet me... when the Kazakh girl finally, actually engaged me in conversation, I had to confess that I wasn't Russian; after that, the two would greet me in Russian, giggle profusely, and always give me extra/free portions from the deli.

Also, when I lived on Treasure Island, there was a stunning Uzbek girl who I'd see on the bus frequently. Fabulously beautiful, very graceful and held herself in a way that you couldn't miss. I eventually struck up a conversation with her, and she got a job at my favorite falafel place so I would see her there. We hung out a few times, but I was actually taken at the time... she got sick of waiting and moved on I always hope I'll bump into her when I'm up there... one of those whimsical "if only"'s that you hold onto.

That hasn't been my experience with the British at all...

Yet it seems like for Indians, the women get a lot more respect than the men do. I am sure a lot of the Bollywood actors could compete with and even hold their own against international sex symbols.

The Great Gatsby (upcoming movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio) will have an Indian guy playing the role of Wolfsheim.
I don't think Indians are on the whole viewed as ugly here or in the UK.

The woman I pasted is gorgeous yes. She is Lebanese (she's actually Druze too, not Muslim)..the host of a talk show in MTV Lebanon (and she's smart too! And her husband is just a normal guy...Chemical Engineer/Businessman). By the way...that woman? She's 45.
I was thinking Balkans, Greece, Croatia, Romania, so pretty close lol. I do know Lebanese can have blue and green eyes.

I don't think it's that, i also think it's partly a generational thing. I remember I think it was the Beatles who said that when they went to America they were struck by how much better the girls looked (looking back on the old videos though I can't tell much difference between the crowds in the US and the UK at their concerts and appearances). Middle aged British women do look more plain, the younger ones look pretty attractive, but when compared to countries on mainland Europe Britain just doesn't compare. The English are a diverse bunch, which works to their favour, and I wouldn't say overall they're ugly.

Least attractive is probably Germany or Austria, but there are good looking ones too. German men might also be underrated, I think Germans just tend to have masculine faces which suit males more.

This was in San Francisco - there's a small Kazakh community there that congregate around the Outer Richmond and Sunset districts. The Uzbeks I met were also out there... there's a pronounced ex-Soviet community out there in the fog belt.

Interesting. You haven't been to Kazakhstan have you? What do you think of how they're going, especially the new city of Astana?

I've always had a thing for British women. The combination of blue eyes and brown hair is what I like best. And always when I'm in the UK I detect more of these blue-eyed, brown-haired women than anywhere on the continent.
