    Do you believe it?

    My mum was in the shop the other day and the shopkeeper hit on her (I think) and said "Are you eastern European?", she said "no, I'm english" and he said "you're too pretty to be english."

    She just got her stuff and left and didn't go back.

    I never thought of this stereotype could actually be said to someone face.

    What do you think of this stereotype?

    According to statistics, polls and surveys regarding attractive nations, Brits always score quite highly.

    I think it's just because of UK being one of the most obese places. The ones who don't really take care of themselves don't help such a stereotype.

    Even today I'm amazed at how many fit attractive people there are here if you just talk a walk through the busy parts of London.

    In my experience, British people are typically more ugly than other nations. Applies to both women and men.

    Just because a shopkeeper implied that British people are ugly doesn't make it a sterotype - it's an isolated incident more than anything. A sterotype is generally widely held and fixed. I've never heard of this notion until now.

    It is a stereotype, I've seen it a lot of times on the internet.

    British guys are incredibly attractive. Relatively tall, decent bone structure, normally blue eyes of some sort. British women however...
