in what way are australian women different to women of other cultures?Page 2 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
It doesnt matter what part of the world we all live in, what culture we all belong to.

What matters is the movement of many things that occurred during last century, that has drastic major effect on social interaction and thoughts in this century.

Its all very well and good that Womens Libs are recognised, but becuase of this, Men dont know how to handle such a change. For the old ways of courtship, often get slapped in the face. so now Men fear of rejected, where as men in the golden times, do not.

I cannot compare to the women of the rest of the world, for i only met very few of them. But i can tell you about the Australian Women. For i am Australian, born, bred and grew up in Country town somewhere in the West.

I have noticed that Women have given too much power. Too much power of controling the situation of whom they should meet, whom they should get, what they want, and so forth. It is a new thing to have and they dont knwo how to use it properly. THis is why they often get azzholes before they realised the "brotherly" liek guys they met and rejected, are the real deal they should have been with.

OF course.. Bad Guys attracts the girls, mainly because its exciting. But 9 times out of ten, these bad guys are really idiots. No hopers, useless, and treat women like sh*t.

And then there's the Materialistic point of view. Women like guys with good cars. Us guys say. A car is just a method of transport.. who cares what set of wheels i got? so long its newish and decent!! Same goes for Credit Cards, If only women (or young generations of both sexes) realises that Credit card was designed to fook yer finances for years to come that there is no way in hell you can afford anything when yer 30!

Plastic Looks means Dumb People. GEt that girls? WE CHOOSE not to look like FABIO or friggn Jean Claude Van Damne, because we not that fookn DUMB! lol On the other hand.. WE dont go for PLASTIC gals either.. my god, i met a bimbo once.. i couldnt even SLEEP with her she that boring.. lmao

Aussie women are Independent, Thru and Thru, but sometimes you find alot of co-dependent women. But the majority of the younger generation of women, are very independent. So independent, they are still single at 30, no children, and they sit and whinge about where are the nice guys. *shrugs* Being independent is a BONUS point for me.. but TOO independent .. well i leave that to your imagination.

Shallow is the key word here. Yes.. Shallow.. mm hmm...

Health. Half of the aussie women i seen in public, are incredibly obese. My god!!!. Im thin, and im trying to put on weight myself, and I DONT Want stick women but FOR CRYING OUT LOUD.. LOSE SOME WEIGHT!!!! lmao.. It's sole purpose is to make YOU.. not the guys.. YOU.. feel better.. savvy women? savvy?!?!?

ok.. enough said... i wouldnt be surprised alot of pple would hate me for this post.. but hey.. you want the cold, honest upfront truth about what Aussie Women are like? you got it.. I dont give a damn azz what other thinks of me :P

I've been reading the posts, and have come to agree that it is the culture of where the women live that makes them differ, otherwise humans are humans and women are women. The cultural relevancy brings about attitudinal and behavioural differences.
I am more than just female, i am a woman. ( nearly broke out into song then.. oops)

If what Naamah said is true that Australian women have made in Australia on their butts then what would be the chances of us poor guys surviving this question:

I know you said you are an Australian woman but I would still like to check your butt to confirm that you are an Australian woman?

I have done some dangerous things in my life but I always shy away from the suicidal acts in life.

Being an Aussie women of mixed heritage ( American born, Aussie by choice, in Australia from age 15, now 57), I think Australian women are different from UK or USA or Asian women. Generally, we don't hold back with what's on our mind. Again, generally, we are educated and often well travelled. We have generally been exposed to a wide variety of cultures within our own milieu and most often, have appreciation of them. We, again generally, have open hearts and minds. Yes, we are independent and can hold our own, yet we long for someone to fill that hole in our hearts, while still maintaining our our sense of self.

Women's Liberation may have had something to do with this initially in the '60/'70's but we have evolved into who we are now - intelligent, independent open minded, open-hearted people.

We, generally don't hold grudges. We love life and live life like we love it and to hell with anyone who stands in our way!

On the other hand, again in general, the lower soci-economic groups are the same as anywhere else in the world - closed minds, closed hearts. The co-relation between USA, UK, Australia in this respect may be very similar.

Well it's sat there a month and nobody's even bothered to respond, so I doubt you've caused a ripple let alone a frenzy of hatred.


Men dont know how to handle such a change. For the old ways of courtship, often get slapped in the face. so now Men fear of rejected, where as men in the golden times, do not.

I would be most curious to hear about these old ways of courtship that worked so well in the golden times that would now cause a woman to slap a man? Because it takes an awful lot to make most women strike a man (excluding a percentage of nutters), and I can't imagine too many old genuinely lovely courtship techniques that would cause it. Surely the sorts of things a woman would slap a man for would be well outside the realms of ...courtship?


I have noticed that Women have given too much power. Too much power of controling the situation of whom they should meet, whom they should get, what they want, and so forth.

You don't think women should control who they meet, who they go out with and what they want? Errrm, who should make these decisions for the women then?


It is a new thing to have and they dont knwo how to use it properly.

So women shouldn't have control over their own lives because they haven't had sufficient experience at being in control of their own lives? Well I've been in control of my own life since I reached adulthood, much the same as all of us here, I'm guessing. It's not like...one minute I was a 40's housewife and next thing, whammo, I found myself in the 2000's not knowing what to do with myself. The women who didn't have control of their own lives, back in this golden era of which you speak, are probably in nursing homes or dead by now. The women you'd be meeting/dating didn't grow up not having control over their own lives...we are not the same women...women are not this collective entity, but rather a whole stack of individual female humans with their own unique consciousness and experiences. Surprising, hey!

So... how does that make the women of today any less experienced with controlling their own lives than the men of today? And therefore why on earth would you think that to the women of today this is a "new thing" that they "don't know how to use properly"? Then again, I guess some people have a brain all their lives and don't become any more skilled at using it.


my god, i met a bimbo once.. i couldnt even SLEEP with her she that boring.. lmao

I wonder how long it took for her scars to heal. Still, I guess if someone else could simply make her decisions for her, about where she goes, who she meets, and control her life for her, she wouldn't be such a bimbo huh.

The rest of your post just seems to be a series of generalisations about women wanting men with cars and credit cards who look like Fabio, and then a quick rant about you wanting women to lose weight. Oh, and I think you called some people shallow. No wonder nobody bothered to respond for a month.

I would be most curious to hear about these old ways of courtship that worked so well in the golden times

At one time men could simply club a woman over the head and just drag her back to the cave, unfortunately this practice was largely abandoned during the Neolithic revolution. As society progressed and grew more complex, the necessity for trade arose, it was realized that women could be used as barter, a wife could be purchased from her father for a very small price (usually 2 chickens and a goat). This was mans first mistake, for they had unwittingly and unknowingly admitted that women had value. This grave error in judgment would eventually lead to the suffragette movement of the early 20’th century, which culminated in the dreaded feminist movement of the late 20’th century.

So, here we are today, men and women living in a society as equals. Of course, this only applies to 15% of nations which are industrialized, and religion is not of paramount importance. If you live in the other 85%, you would be well served to own a club along with a few chickens and goats.

In the past 10,000 years, we’ve advanced how we live, so drastically that we’re capable of travelling millions of miles through space… yet, how we behave has advanced mere inches.

Personally I'd rather have the chooks But yeah, from what you've added there, I reiterate....

And indeed I did realise we were probably moreso talking about scenarios of female humans being treated like chattels, which was being veiled with some entirely transparent spin doctoring when it was being described as "courtship". The two are quite different beasts.

I guess the evolution of how things work between men and women would only be a problem for a man who can't get a woman to choose to want to be with him without being restrained, forced, or bought. Such a man would no doubt feel verrrry hard done by.

meat me: It's been my experience that once you turn them upside-down.
It's difficult to find any difference!


You must be kidding! No two are alike. They could use them as fingerprints.

But in which way are Aussie women different to other cultures?

Well, they go off like a Russian Rocket .... Oh so do Kiwis and Poms and Yanks ... ummmm ... in my travels I have found that there are probably less differences than similarities.

NWASquirrely: But as I read this forum, I have respect for Ausi Women. They tend to be more straight forward than most. And quite abit more honest. But then I have to say that goes for all Ausi's in general.


MORE STRAIGHT FORWARD! A BIT MORE HONEST!

They're straight forward all right Straight forward to anything they want and demand that their man provide it for them.

They're "honest" too. A recent study (2009) showed that one in four Australian children were calling the wrong man Daddy.

If Aussies were honest, we wouldn't put up with the governments we do. We go to the polls with self interest so far ahead of national or state interest that we continue to put the same tag team of new aristocrats into govt time and time again.

And I have to say that I find American women more honest and empathic than Australian women, but there are plenty of ratbags in America too. I found my soulmate in Atlanta Georgia. Unfortunately some American man had found her many years earlier before leaving her and their 5 children for a younger woman.

She couldn't leave Georgia with her children and at 46 I wasn't wanted as a perminant reident in the USA. Such is love.

Australian women are very accepting and accommodating in that they are prepared to give anything or anyone a go. The difference is they draw the line at not being true to themselves and wont think twice about walking away when their morals or values are questioned. They're very sweet and very strong.

You see it time and time again. A Japanese lady comes over here, all nice and polite, nice clothes, nice manners etc.

Then they start hanging round with Aussie chicks. Next thing you know, they call people the c-word all the time, smoke bongs with truckies, spit on the ground, and dress like whores. After that comes the tramp stamp/arse antlers, then its straight down to centrelink to sign up for the baby bonus, where they'll latch on to some dribbling idiot in a terry-towelling hat and con him up to give her a belly full of arms and legs. All of a sudden she's slapped a DVO on him and blown half his mates on the sly, and so she moves into a caravan with Shazza. So next time you drive past a caravan park and see a haggard flogged out old Asian woman watering the flowers, you'll know exactly how it all began.

I agree with the first few stanza's of the drovers wife (poem)
Australian women do come across as bitter tired old hags who don't know how to be ladies.

In all honesty the Australian woman has tickets on herself, because the average Australian bloke falls over himself for a piece.
She's always looking to trade up her case and work the system appearing weak only when it suits her agenda.
She has none of the Aristotelian virtues men are looking for & lusts only for wealth, power and above all status.
Her 'ground floor' mind takes no time to consider how life should be lived or how she effects those around her other than to reflect the empathy of the herd and her spiritual obsession with yoga is no more introspective than the color of her leotard in sharp irony of the very basis to which the practice was derived.
Aussie women are vain without the looks to warrant it.
Aussie women have no use for men, they are so strong and dependent the only reason they have a man is to cuckold him into subservience so her children have a mother.
Aussie women are trivial and delusional, chasing after what they are told they want by others and not even considering what works and makes their world happier.
Aussie women hold a grudge and after one bad partner treat every man as the devil; where upon they must prostrate themselves before 'lady justice' and plead their case that they are but not merely a man, but divine.
It must above all not be a lie though it cannot be true, & upon this thread is the sword of Damocles.
There is no love to the Aussie woman, nor from and the fabled medusa would make a greater wife than she; in both looks & temperance.

Surely the sorts of things a woman would slap a man for would be well outside the realms of ...courtship?


Okay please look at the wikipedia entry for courtship.
Courtship is not dating; it is not a casual affair it is more in depth and ritualitic.
For a start finding out where a girl lives and serenading her is likely to land you an AVO or at the very least a tresspass warning.
You cannot go through elders because people don't respect nor listen to them these days.
On top of this it's hard to build up to something with the casualization women have towards partners; I fully expect any woman I like to either already have a partner or be 3 days away from a 'tie over'.
If this is not the case then they are the sort that is saving themselves for the 'always something better'.
You don't get better than me, I work, I'm sane, average looking, intelligent and a gentleman.
That's not good enough for such women.





I have noticed that Women have given too much power. Too much power of controling the situation of whom they should meet, whom they should get, what they want, and so forth.

You don't think women should control who they meet, who they go out with and what they want? Errrm, who should make these decisions for the women then?
There is nothing wrong with their elders making such decisions; they are likely to listen to the concerns of their children and have not only the world experience as well as the personal distance to consider things objectively.
The problem really comes that there can be no mid way between the two where an elders opinions are taken to heart.
Personally I am very introspective, I understand myself very well.
If I am honest without tempering my wishes I would date nothing, but beautiful 18 year olds or reserve my heart (I've been single long enough not to care about being single); the rational intelligent side of me recognizes that such a want is not healthy for me and as much as I may desire it, it isn't actually what I want.
Perspective is what allows the irrational desires of the self to be tempered so that true happiness can be achieved by simply being realistic and more relaxed.
Do not expect a rose to be in bloom by your bedside every morning, expect fair weather and soil and to grow enough so that you may find them there in any season but winter.

It is a new thing to have and they dont know how to use it properly.

So women shouldn't have control over their own lives because they haven't had sufficient experience at being in control of their own lives? Well I've been in control of my own life since I reached adulthood, much the same as all of us here, I'm guessing. It's not like...one minute I was a 40's housewife and next thing, whammo, I found myself in the 2000's not knowing what to do with myself. The women who didn't have control of their own lives, back in this golden era of which you speak, are probably in nursing homes or dead by now. The women you'd be meeting/dating didn't grow up not having control over their own lives...we are not the same women...women are not this collective entity, but rather a whole stack of individual female humans with their own unique consciousness and experiences. Surprising, hey!




It is more correct to say that they have been handed power like the young emperor Nero was handed his by his mother and like Nero have gravitated to allow no authority over and hence corrupted themselves to Tyrany.
Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
It corrupted men before womens lib, now it's corrupted women post womens lib and in the words of many forefront feminists today if all we have managed to accomplish is to flip the coin then we have accomplished nothing.




So... how does that make the women of today any less experienced with controlling their own lives than the men of today? And therefore why on earth would you think that to the women of today this is a "new thing" that they "don't know how to use properly"? Then again, I guess some people have a brain all their lives and don't become any more skilled at using it.


Because it was a forced & not natural transition of state. It is why there is such a problem today where both sexes mistrust each other and fail to get what they desire from modern dating.
I can back this up using both logic and example.
Simply put though women ask for too much then complain that there is not enough of the angels cut to go round, they don't become more realistic in fact quite the opposite working more on themselves to increase their own introspective value that has no real world application because it cannot make a 5% population group into a 60-90% population group.
Men are unhappy because if they are not in the top 5% of elligible males then they suffer from the negative feedback loop presented by overreaching females and have no choice in the matter.
There is no balance and therein lies the problem.
Women long for confident strong stable vibrant men predominantly, by age 40 can you say you've encouraged those qualities in men? or have you just looked for what you want and been cherry picking till you ended up alone?
In the latter it's not one persons poor judgement that affects only the one persons future; she affects many.



my god, i met a bimbo once.. i couldnt even SLEEP with her she that boring.. lmao

I wonder how long it took for her scars to heal. Still, I guess if someone else could simply make her decisions for her, about where she goes, who she meets, and control her life for her, she wouldn't be such a bimbo huh.

The rest of your post just seems to be a series of generalisations about women wanting men with cars and credit cards who look like Fabio, and then a quick rant about you wanting women to lose weight. Oh, and I think you called some people shallow. No wonder nobody bothered to respond for a month.

I do disagree with the car bit in particular, when I interact with women it's not around my car and from what I understand of psychology and sociology it's not going to impact therefore on the first impression and likely not on any date.
Especially with the whale in the room that a modern man isn't throwing cash at some random uninvested party who they might not see ever again; and damn modern man for not being more traditional. *rolls eyes.

Generally speaking australian women are great , this is a very general statement , the only difference between them and women of other cultures is i find they sometimes lack confidence.

European women in particular are very easy to talk to because they dont assume you have an agenda.
Asian women are very shy at first but are still lots of fun and easy to get to know.

one thing ladies most decent men find a bit of a turn off is having a few too many .. this is an australian culture thing i know but its not a good look.

I would love to go out and be my self and talk to ladies , dance , have a great night without them being worried ... that would be awesome.

l'd like to say they were the best chicks in the world but sadly l can't, not even close.
The age terribly , lose all sex appeal, looks, body but yet have such an unwarranted sense of entitlement and me me me , that it's bloody ridiculous, especially for what your gonna get for your trouble. Just look over the date sites or up and down any shopping mall .
My ex gf was a modern Italian , no comparison , not in bed or out , or looks, or cooking or passion, convo, fun,or anything. Don't know if l'll ever fall in love again but if it's an Aussie then she'd have to be a big big cut above the norm that's out there in 40s and 50s these days but l'm not even interested in one from any l've seen.
Pretty sad sitch really. Wish l was still in Melbourne with so many other nationalities , unfortunately mainly just aussie girls in my area here

it would be interesting to ask australian women " what do men want ? " if they dont know or care about the answer then that maybe the difference.

Women i have met from different countries most definitely know what men want. Not talking about sex , thats a minor part of it , im talking about how to charm a man , to make him feel good , to get him to open up and get him to want to be around them.

If a lot of australian women are finding it hard to get a man .. then its possible they dont know what men want.

just a thought
