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.
But see - clothing, make-up, it all comes kinda secondary ( although important in men's eyes, I understand.) However what I'm talking about first of all - the features primarily; eyes and what's not.
Would you say they play better for men in Gr. Br. or for women?
For example the German girl here ( whoever she is; a celebrity may be?) - I don't find her particularly attractive; the "boy" version of her would probably look better.

In case of Gr. Br. - ok, throw charm in there (I understand again that it's a big part of attractiveness,) so even adding that to equation, do you think the looks play better for men or for women in Gr. Br?

Simply going by casual observations on the street, I would still say men. I think the men, at least in my city, look better than the women, regardless of how much 'effort' they put into looking good.

Well then there we go - THERE ARE countries where one gender looks better then the other.

OK, so let's put Gr. Br there too, but I still insist that US is 50/50))))

Your opinion does not reflect the opinion of men who are in relationships and marriages with Black women. Passing off a personal opinion as collective fact is a sign of low level thinking. You may want to develop your critical thinking skills. Black women have no problem attracting American and non-American men of various persuasions who love Black women. Its just that simple. This online hate speech targeting Black women needs to end.

You can insist on the UK too - these things are so ridiculously subjective after all.

Nope, I reserve the right to insist only when I'm absolutely certain.

I wasn't all that certain on Gr. Br, so I take your word for it)))

This is true. The "unkept" look goes much better with men that with women.

Here the stereotype of english men being hot and women being ugly does exist, too. I ve met some english tourists and found them to be charming and attractive. Maybe it was the accent

That's only because we're used to seeing women look 'kept' and we've been brainwashed to think women naturally look how they do. Women start thinking they're objectively so much better looking and picky as hell when it comes to dating.

When I was in the UK, I saw so many goodlooking women, only that they wear too much foundation and mascara. Make up is good to enhance a woman's look but not to overdo it.

^^ well, there is the opposite extreme too, which is pretty common: women wearing too much makeup.
