    Yes, if they were from anywhere except Eastern Europe, because they are thieves and they would probably steal your clothes when having sex. All others are fine.
    So no Slovenes? Why do you think that about Eastern European men? They do also probably have their own clothes btw.

    I doubt there are many girls who would date Somalians, Singaporeans, Samoans, Indians or Nigerians etc. So it would be more pertinant to divide them into more specific groups such as Europeans, Asians, Africans etc.
    All of them are foreign however, most women would date a french or dutch guy, however most women (not all of the mind you) would not date an Indian guy.
    How come? I have plenty of Singaporean friends and they appear to date people from all over the world but I'm not sure if any have ever shown any intent of dating a British female.

    Are these the nationalities the press has a negative opinion about btw?

    The press has no negative opinion on any nationality. It has more to do with physical attraction and cultural attraction. I have never heard of the media having negative opinions about one specific nationality, even from the Daily Mail.

    The underlying fact is that the vast majority of women want White european/Western boyfriends, mixed race couples whilst having increased are still pretty rare, as most British/European girls I know (and I have lived in many European countries) simply want a white boyfriend. A British born Indian or Pakistani etc. will have more chance than an Indian/ Pakistani born person. I think South Asian culture is a turn off. I have had this discussion with many of my girlfriend and the general concensus is 'why would I go for an Nigerian or Pakistani guy if I could simply get a white guy'. If girls were nearly as attracted to Indian, Pakistani, nigerian men as they are with white men, then there would be far more multi racial couples. I think most of the posts on this forum pretty much sum this up.

    Actually that makes sense in that the model of male beauty in the UK would be for paler men, so presumably British women would find the complexions and features of coloured men often quite ugly and intimidating. What do fashion magazines etc. say? But aren't there quite a few mixed-race couples in London? Maybe it tends to be the female who is more darker-skinned though?

    It is not that girls find coloured faces ugly or intimidating. Its just that the majority of women simply more attracted to white guys. But in context to the question. I think cultural attraction is also very important. Other European cultures can be very attractive, whilst non European cultures are not really.

    But wouldn't darker skin and features of coloured men be deemed unattractive in the UK and British fashion magazines? Which non-European cultures are deemed ugly? And is it because of lack of gender equality in some nations outside Europe? (I think Norway, Sweden and Iceland have been most progressive in that regard).

    I don't know if you're from up north or not but no offence to anyone from there, but I can actually understand Polish people who speak broken English better than most Northerners. e.g. John Bishop, I seriously do not understand a word he says.
    HA, seriously? Anyway, all my foreign friends say Northern is more easy to understand because we pronounce things more as they are spelt. :cool:
