I'm gay but appreciate beauty on either side of the gender spectrum.. having said that, I find there are tons of great looking guys in Canada with really average looking women. Sorry Canadian girls... but I want you man!

I'd say the same for the U.S as well - even hotter guys with avg looking girls... I'd say Venezuela is the opposite lol...

Says who? What is your gender, OP? Russian and Romanian men can be very good-looking. As much so as the women. The Latin-type Romanian men are better looking than the women, imo.

Also 'same features' doesn't necessarily mean both are good looking...some features may look better on men than women and vice versa...

Stereotypes also would suggest that Portuguese, Italian and Spanish women should ratio wise be attractive...but it appears that many men and women in my experience feel men come out better there than females...

I've been to Latin America myself and felt that men and women were about equal...Eastern Europe I certainly felt the women looked a lot better...
I am not attracted to Asian men ( specifically Oriental looking men ) .

I have seen a number of Pakistani men who are goodlooking and appealing.

I haven't been to Latin America yet, but their actors look good too. One of the Latin American actors I like is Mario Cimaro




I have seen a lot of goodlooking Italian and Spanish men. There is just something about them that really captivates me... It's probably their dark hair and eyes and their beard.

I'm gay but I definitely know when I see an attractive woman. I was in Switzerland in December and I saw a TON of gorgeous women, like knock-out gorgeous. I saw attractive men as well but the women were more memorable for me and I think it's because I saw so many of them. So I can safely say that based on my own opinion Swiss women are more attractive than Swiss men as a general rule. This was based on my observations in Zurich, Geneva, Lucerne, Berne, and Neuchatel.

This is simply personal opinion but I think that German men are better looking than German women - ESPECIALLY as they age. Many middle aged German men dress very elegantly, while the women seem to become more frumpy. And those very strong jawlines that so many Germans have generally look better on a man than on a woman.

For me, it was a small sample size, but I noticed this too while in Spain...the male German tourists looked much better than their wives.

I think a lot of the difference comes down to makeup, hairstyle, dress, behaviour.etc. I don't think British women are that ugly, for instance, and I think Russian men are not seen as hot primarily because they're stereotyped as being drunks or abusive and Russian women overshadow them. Japanese men are not on the same level as Japanese women because women don't have an Asian fetish (well it's not as common) compared to the men, although that could be changing. I've noticed the younger generation have a bit more of a thing for Japanese men due to pop culture.
Maybe men all over the world should start wearing makeup for the women to notice...lol

Honestly, it's only because people make fun of drag queens. But women could learn to appreciate men wearing makeup over time. Historically in many cultures men have worn makeup for beauty.

I'd second this opinion - I also think that German men look better than German women; it's as you've said certain types of prominent features in Germans ( like strong jaw line for example) play well in male version but not in female version.
It's a flip in case of Russians; sometimes I wonder - gee how could all these gorgeous girls come of such ugly fathers, lol.
Again - certain features there I guess play well for women and don't work too well for men.
I didn't notice anything similar in the US though among White Americans (or Brits for this matter) - there the looks seem to be "evenly-distributed" if I can say so.

I tend to find men look better on average here simply because so many women don't even bother trying to look nice, don't bother wearing makeup and wear jeans too tight for them and 10 year-old cardigans, so look incredibly drab and plain, whereas men don't even have to make an effort to look good - they just need to wake up in the morning and they can call it 'laid back' or 'casual'. To be honest, I find the most attractive men to be the ones who don't put much effort and have 5 o'clock shadow.

Then there are stereotypes - British men have a reputation for being 'charming' or 'handsome' (like Hugh Grant, might be outdated by now though as the Beer Belly Brit seems to be taking over in Spain lol), but British women have a reputation for being ugly. These are just stereotypes though and have no relevance in real life.

I also like to think most women here do try, but many don't, and women who don't try to look nice don't look as attractive as men who don't make an effort to look nice, in my opinion of course.
