Greek men. Not at all like the Greeks gods I envisioned
The ugliest men in Europe ?
And the women, after 25, are no Aphrodites.
Greeks of the BC era were blond and blue eyed. Over the following 2,000 years, the mixing of darker people results in todays swarthy greek men and women. Even the early Romans were much fairer skinned and like the Greeks, more germanic in coloration than todays people which are heavily integrated with the darker people of north Africa.
Yet some men from North Africa are gorgeous

That's why aristocratic ancient women shaved the blond hair from their Germanic slaves to make wigs for themselves--they wanted to cover their own blond hair with blond hair.
My best friend is of Greek descent. But he was born in Australia and reared in the US.
Looks something like Cornel Wilde. His mom was actually Miss Greece in the Miss Universe contest decades ago. So maybe he doesn't count.
Fuck no-that would be the Brits and Scottish. Many of those can be some of the ugliest humans found on Earth.
R3 that's not true at all. It has been disproved multiple times. Blonde hair and blue eyes were seen as more rare and beautiful and given to a lot of the Gods but as usual, natural blonds and blue eyed people were in the minority. Anyway, having blonde hair and blue eyes certainly does not make one more attractive than someone with darker features.
Many Greek men are sexy as fuck, much more so than Brits, Scots or a lot of other lighter Euros.
Well, I think they're hot as hell. Greeks share a common lineage with southern Italians and Turks, and they're all sexy to me. Basically, I think men from the Mediterranean are the hottest things on the planet.
R10, thats the exception. Most of them always seem to kook like this man
That Aussie-Greek guy who did the j/o scene in "Head On" was incredibly hot.
Just like any ethnicity, there are stunningly handsome Greek men. And then there are average-looking and less than average-looking men. Just like everywhere.
Not all Spaniards and Italians are sexy and sultry. Not all Brits are pasty. Not all Brazilians have big dicks.
I visited almost all European countries and I found Maltese men to be the ugliest. They're the shortest men in Europe and the second fattest EU nation (only UK people are fatter). Height and big bellies aside, they just don't have very pleasant faces. I was especially bothered by their crooked noses.
R28 wow. SO you didn't find anyone there to be hot or attractive?
Swedish guys, are no prize either.
I think the UK, Netherlands, and Denmark have some of the worst/weirdest looking.
You have GOT to be fucking kidding me. Scandinavian men are among the most beautiful on the planet, you crazy fuck.
Swedes are GORGEOUS
[quote]I'm half-Greek and half-Italian
Mark Philippoussis and John Stamos are 2 of the best looking guys...
Scandinavian men can be beautiful OR they can end up looking like fucking unappealing elves.
So true R38, and unfortunately it's usually the latter. Adult elf.
Beauty is in the eye of the bedrinker.
I wonder what John Stamos would look like without his nose job.
This proves that the Greek sculpturer was the precursor of Photoshop
R8 "Brits and Scottish" - you do know, I hope, that the Scottish ARE British? What with Scotland being part of the island of Great Britain. The English are British as well, and so are the Welsh.
Anyway, for my money French men in general aren't that much to look at. I'd much rather have Ewan McGregor, Gerard Butler, Sean Connery, John Barrowman or David Tennant, all of them Scottish, all gorgeous.
R29 Nope! I did see a handful of passable guys, but I didn't spot a single hottie. It may sound like I'm exegerating, but unfortunately I'm not. Luckily for them the women of Malta are also ugly so the men don't stand out too much.
I didn't really care for Greek men either, but they are Adonises if you compare them with some other men from the Mediterranean region.
My late mother always claimed that the men (and women) of the former Yugoslavia were the ugliest people in the world and she'd been everywhere.
I remember a Greek guy who worked in my office looked like a generic twink of no discernible nationality. Lots of them do, apparently.
R41: That nose job is the only possible reason they cancelled my show for those three unfunny little white bitches.
R7, that sculpture is one of my favorites! Hall of Faun, the sleeping satyr, Glyptothek, Munich, Bavaria, Germany. It's absolutely breathtaking.
Disagree about Balkan guys being ugly. Croatian men are beyond gorgeous and hung too. Montenegrin guys are very tall and handsome as well. Slovenes aren't bad either.
Curiously, I've heard it said that Kosovar women are hotter than the men.
r18 You're not implying that's a bad thing, are you?
I don't know about Greeks from Greece, but some of the hottest, sexiest men I've known or been with turned out to be Greek-American.
I don't know what you guys are talking about but Greek men are sexy. Especially this man
No. Anglo men (U.S., Canada, England, ireland, Scotland) are down right homely. I have anglo friends and I love them but they are not attractive to my eyes.
I spend a semester years back in Athens and concluded all Greek men turn bad at about age 25. They sure have a short shelf life.
R3, you may be "fair" but you're also full of shit.

ROFL, So true!
r45 completely untrue. There are hordes of beautiful people among the Serbs, Croats and the other groups there and that includes men and women.
Not one mention of George Kotsiopoulos? He is insanely lick-able...
I`m half Greek half English, but certainly look way more Greek, and I am happy about that!!
Greek men are not as a whole that gorgeous, but I will contend with my dying breath that some of the most stunning men on the planet are the men on the Athens police force. They are like supermodels.
Greeks are fine, same with Italians, Swedes, Brits, Spanish, Swiss, Germans, whatever, all of them. It's subjective. There are drop dead gorgeous beauties and heinous ham beasts in every nationality. People of Walmart is not a work of fiction.
r28, there are some things that need to be left unsaid. you went to far, dude.
Greek men tend to be gorgeous when young but turn into trolls later on. Case in point: George Michael.
They look their best if you happen to be biting a pillow at the time.
