Not so much "women" from different countries, but "people" from different countries. It'sall about the social culture, what is permissable/acceptable, what is not

to being looked after by girlfriend/wife.
- does this mean I can have a girlfriend and a wife? Plus I can purchase Gypsy daughters? Wow euros rock, screw the evil U.S.
Seriously, my nephew has a girlfriend from czech, and she is totally different from american girls her age, totally sweet, at one with her body, and just very open to new people, no trips, just a normal nice person truly beautiful on the inside....smokes alot, no suprise there.....
Met a girl from New Zealand and many from England, as an observation, they seem more friendly and less damaged than U.S women, I know I'm generalizing, but I'm so tired of the "look the other way you have to chase me then impress me" bs, I know I'm a man and its my duty to catch a fish, but Euro's seem like heaven.... so I'd have to say yes, women from different countries do act differently....

Different countries have different cultures/expectations of women.

America women are more carefree while in the Middle East women are like property. I think we treat our dogs better.

Oh hell yes! That's one of the reasons I don't date american women. I find foriegn women much more straight forward and real. The Russians, Germans, Africans,
Asians I've dated, to me at least, seemed much more self-possesed and genuine.
Less conflicted about gender issues too.

You are a woman. I tend to think we may be relating to women in somewhat different ways and levels.

here is an email I got from one of my guy friends. (BTW, I did not grow up in the US culture)
American men have options. American women do not. So the American women huff and puff, and scowl at the incoming foreign brides who don't demand the feminazi equality bullshit. You WISH American men didn't have choices. You're like a labor union that's pissed off because the company is hiring non-union employees.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

American men have two options: 1. Sport**** free American ****dolls forever. 2. Settle down with a foreign girl who has no expectations.
American women also have several options: 1. Be a free ****doll. (That's not a bad option by the way. More and more women embrace it. I say produce more "Sex and the City"-like shows and accelerate the trend. It certainly beats the other options.) 2. Live alone with 10 cats. 3. Single mother in permanent poverty.

What American women think about it is not relevant. It's just supply and demand. American women are still desperately trying to sell their shit sandwich, but the gig is up.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You fat, whiny feminist ****es with your senses of entitlement have priced yourselves out of the market. American men want and can get Latinas, Asians, and East European women with beautiful bodies who take care of themselves and now how to treat a man. Get used to seeing white men pick these women over white American women. It is already happening and the trend will escalate.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lots of American women **** about American men dating foreigners. You want to know why? Because YOU SUCK. You are a pain in the ass. Period. Foreign women are easy to deal with. Having dated Europeans and Latina's, they are infinitely easier to deal with than American women. They just accept you for being a man. I hear lots of women say foreign women are pushovers - its the furthest thing from the truth. Particularly the Italians and the Latina's - they will fight with you and are very vocal. They just don't have all this bullshit that you carry around with you.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

American women have so many privileges, demands and rights that smart men can no longer afford to marry them. You fat American women who think you should be treated like princesses by rich handsome men have priced yourself out of the market.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And it's American women who are upset that American men aren't marrying them. American men are perfectly content to use American women for easy sport ****ing. It's a product of American women's own feminist sexual revolution. Look at the #1 and #2 reason why American men are now avoiding marriage:
1. They can get sex without marriage more easily than in times past.

2. They can enjoy the benefits of having a wife by cohabiting rather than marrying.

Additionally, American guys have millions of foreign women who are dying to marry them. Lower divorce rate and no feminazi attitude.

So quite honestly, it doesn't matter if they're fat/skinny/ugly. It's not about what's fair. It's about what you can get. American men get what they want: easy casual sex from American women. Foreign brides with low divorce rates and no feminazi attitude. And American women get cats.

Deal with it.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

But guess what. Guys don't need to get married. Guys are perfectly happy ****ing & chucking women. That's what's great about American women. Free whores.
Women are the ones who are insecure and needy. Women are the ones who want companionship and emotional attachments. Women are the ones who are afraid of being alone and unloved forever.

Just go to the bookstore, and look at the magazines. An entire section for men: porn magazines. And entire section for women: weddings and brides magazines.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After many many years of dealing with American women, I've hit an interesting point. I've lost ALL sexual interest in them, in fact I just about puke walking down the sidewalk on any day, seeing all those shitty, rude, mean, snotty American women.
Strange thing, cause for so long I've been quite a horndog, chasing women at all levels. I'm still totally attracted to foreign women...Indians, Orientals, Europeans.

But show me an American chick and I basically couldn't care less. Tell me how "beautiful" she is...doesn't matter. I suppose from an intellectual viewpoint I can see the beauty, but it's not any more attractive to me than...let's say...admiring a beautiful horse or a well-groomed cat. OK, admirable, but not sexy folks.

They say that sex is 90% mental...well, my mind has rejected American women completely.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's not a question of what's "OK" or not ok. Nobody gives a shit if it's fair or not.
The point is, women in their 30's, who are career oriented, are extremely UN-desirable to most men, as wives. Those women are getting more and more undesirable as the years pass...in fact by about 35 they are more or less out of the running completely.

Men, on the other hand, are at their peak of desirability, as potential husbands, at 35, and they remain at that peak for many years. A 40 year old guy who is a decent success can ALWAYS find a 30 yr old woman who would jump at the chance to grab him.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

99.9% of the single women in this country are not even marriageable.
Take away the women beyond the marriageable age (over 30).
Take away the fat women.
Take away the ugly women.
Take away the psycho Zoloft / Prozac women.
Take away the raped women.
Take away the women with STDs / HIV.
Take away the women who can't cook.
Take away the women who already have kids.

And you've eliminated 99.9% of the single women in this country.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Statistics on educated women and marriage.
60+% of college graduates are now women and it'll be 66+% in 5 years.
Educated women only marry men who are at least as educated/successful as them.
A large percentage of educated men (25-50%) either do not want a family at all or will only marry uneducated/stay-home type women or foreign women, etc.
So out of 100 graduates we have 60 women and 40 men. 10-20 out of these 40 men will not marry any one of the 60 women. That means that there is 1 eligible man for every 2 women if you estimate very conservatively, or more realistically close to 1 man to 3 women.

damassteel,

What do you mean by "less conflicted about gender issues?"

--------

To me- of course people from different countries or even different parts of the same country or different neighborhoods of the same city behave differently. Manhattan is a great example.

When I lived in Israel, people used to say to me that it's better to marry an Israeli girl in Israel, because the Israeli girls work their men hard, but they work hard. American girls in Israel don't work their men hard, or work hard. But when American girls see what Israeli girls get out of their men, they work their men hard like the Israeli girls, but they still don't work hard. I don't know if it's true. But that's what some people said to me.

All women are different. Some women are better than others, depending on who you ask.
Since I don't date men, I will guess that they are the same. How did this get turned into a woman/man bashing thread? There sure are a lot of bitter people here on POF. I bet there grade school report cards said: They don't play well with others.

RE Msg: 29 by Luciana9:

Wow! A lot of info!

I'd just like to add a few things to that:

1) Most women tend to marry "up", from almost every culture. But what is different about Western women, is that THEY DON'T NOTICE ANY MEN WHO DON'T FIT INTO THEIR CRITERIA!
If you read the forums, or speak to any Western women, they'll frequently say that they don't know any "good" men. Men are very quick to point out there are plenty of good men around. But these women are simply not even noticing they exist, and when they are introduced to those men, treat them like they don't exist, or at best, like an asexual friend. So they take those men out of the equation.

But what is also important, is that feminism has fought for equal pay for women, and continues to fight for that, to this day. So women in countries with feminism, women are more and more "equal" with men, and so, there are less and less men who they can marry "up" with, and they tend to ignore the rest, as if they don't exist. So that wipes out most of the men they want to marry.

2) Western men just want a woman who looks good, and who will pull her fair share of the income and/or the housework. Generally, people in developing countries have far better diets, and do a lot more exercise, and that makes them generally much healthier, to the extent that doctors from the Mayo Clinic found that poor beggars in India were far healthier than rich Americans. Generally, healthier people tend to be much better-looking, and look much younger, and tend to stay that way for many years. In addition, because they are used to working hard anyway, they tend to have no problem in doing their fair share of work and housework.

But even with all that, it's really hard to do your job well in the West, if you lack confidence, and it's really hard to stay confident when you're being told you're sh*t every day. So even if a woman is very good-looking, and very hard-working, men will eventually leave women who insult them regularly. I even know some men who've told me that they were living with a woman who looked like a model even after she'd had kids, and they STILL left her, rather than stay.

3) Right now, it's considered perfectly acceptable in the West, for women to run their men down, and lots do, all the time. You can see it all the time in the media, with slogans like "women need a man like fish need a bicycle", and "all men are potential rapists", and on TV, where men are portrayed as slovenly idiots who can never do anything right. But it's far, far worse in the home. So in the end, men are choosing foreign women, partially for their better looks, and partially for their greater willingness to work hard, but mostly because they don't b*tch at their men every day and night.

If Western women want to get married, all they need to do, is to look at statistics. They've done studies on who gets into relationships. They found the men most likely to have a new relationship were men who were outgoing. But the women who were most likely to get a new relationship, were agreeable.

That's right, girls. If you want a man, then all you need to do is to be "agreeable". You don't need to agree to do a man's every whim. But you do need to follow up with: "Yes, I'd love to do that, and once I've put the kids to bed, I'll see if we have the time before we go to bed." It's that simple. You need to learn to say "Yes" a bit more often, and "No", a bit less.

I have seen inclass tests made at the Social Sciences courses about relationships and family.
Over 80 % of the women first criteria was income in selecting a man. For men that criteria was the last one. For men mattered the look and who you are as a person.

Now, many many times through the years I had and have seen women say making 50 K/year looking for man making 75 K and above, it almost always "above".
Now how much of that "above" the economy can bare ? You girls find out.

Personally I am not looking for a women who makes more money because she makes you a LOSER. Its like you have to make more just for her sake, not because that is what you want.

In economies where men don't give a s.h.i.t about their money as much as in the west women never can make it by themselves.

Women arrogance comes from the fact that they have lots of mid-management and office positions available and paper-work generating jobs giving them also false sense of who they are at work. I have at my job lots of women always talking in meetings...they "talk discussions" because they can fill in a spreadsheet and call you for "updates" and ask you how things are in reality and hide behind words... that's what they know how to do....but they get EGO out of it....and they tend to feel "precious"....and you have to win their aggressive way of being....which is lights years away of what a man would want.
Sure there are lots of women professionals able to do very good things and they deserve their money most likely...but still they look down on you if you make less or even a little bit more then they do...still crap for them.

If I didn't live in the azz end of nowhere I would be talking to foreign women.

In my opinion, American women are the worst people on the face of the planet to form lasting relationships.

Just my .02.

Interestingly enough, it seems to be the concensus too.

Absolutely. I think different societies approach their femininity, sense of family, independence in completely different ways than American women.

atlantean;
This describes my five year long relationship with a Russian woman to a "T". It was exactly as you described. And I was indeed a fool to have let it go on as long as it did. By the time I pulled my head out of my a$$, I was almost ruined financially. While the Ruskies are no longer an option for me owing to hard experience, American women still simply do not attract me for most of the reasons previously stated by other posters.

Hell, women from different BLOCKS behave differently.
If you mean, is there a place where women all act like men, and not at all like women, then no. There's a wide range of behaviors that all people exhibit, and though culture and circumstances will have their effects, there is always a general similarity.
There are, also, places where women are not ALLOWED to behave in an open and friendly manner in public, but the rest of their behaviors are still what we're used to.

Damassteel, I second that opinion. I too don't even care to be around American women. American women have very little feminine charm and are all mouth and me, me, me. When you read American womans profile, 90% say "I'm looking for a man who will treat me like a woman". They want to project masculine strength and image, yet expect the advantages of being a woman as well....what a joke! The first thing out of their mouth is how independent they are, and don't need a man....but, date her a few times and she will impose on you to fix every broke down piece of crap she owns.....don't need a man my ass! I think if American women were half a smart as they think they are, they would figure out something very simple. Realize their limitations as women and act accordingly....they wouldn't have to insist on being treated like a woman, it would be automatic for a man. Challenge us with how strong, smart and tough you think you are, I for one, will step out of your way so you can prove it. I find it comical that when they are confronted with some of their equality crap....they immediately go for the "but I'm a woman" excuse. All mouth, and nothing but mouth. The truth is, they want and demand the advantages of both genders, but none of the disadvantages of either. Foreign women get my vote by a huge margin. Quite frankly, I find foreign women to be far more intelligent, talented and cultured. Most of them can play a musical intrument, are artistic and have hobbies. Most of our women can only play the ATM machine and read romance novels. American women
