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.

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.

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 4310/14/2013

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.

Curiously, I've heard it said that Kosovar women are hotter than the men.

There are plenty of hot Greeks but what I don't get is HOW THE FUCK did so many Greeks go from the sexy BC Greeks who were warrior-like Spartans or sexy Athenians to being lazy, fat slobs? There are a lot of handsome Greeks but these days most of them are lazy and fat so they don't take advantage of their looks.

The ancient Greeks would be horrified and ashamed at what their descendants have become-the laughing stock of Europe.

one of the hottest men I have met recently was a movie star handsome man from Afghanistan working in a Washington DC hotel.

Hot enough so you could feel his heat. His eyes were lasers. His body that of a Greek god sculpture. Kind, classy, and funny--maybe 45 or so, maybe slightly younger.

I usually go for Irish and Scottish men--having been to the UK often, just visit a college campus in either country and see for yourself.

As a Greek-American, many of the posts on this thread are offensive.

But for something inspiring, watch the video in the link for Greeks taking action. I'm not suggesting anyone give or follow the progress being made by One Greece. I follow it online. And I give so that Greece has a chance once again. But many of your know-it-all claims are simply wrong. Do your research before you show your ignorance and arrogance.

Had to reply to r7's nonsense.

A recent analysis of mitochondrial dna retrieved from ancient Minoan remains was compared to several populations in Europe and Africa. The modern population most closely related to the ancient Minoans were the Greeks of the Lesithi Plateau. This evidence points toward population continuity between ancient and modern Greeks.

See the Principal Component Analysis in Figure 5:

by Anonymousreply 9112/01/2014

R91 There is a strong effort in the scientific community to present a case that modern Europeans are not related to past Europeans even those of 500 years ago. The picture they want to give is Europe has been a washing machine of different people being put in and others thrown out and everyone tossed around.

Oh. stfu r88. You're an embarrassment. And probably very ugly.

Same goes for the other idiots on here who think they know about DNA. Or Europe.

Greeks are just like everyone else. Some are attractive, some are ugly, most are somewhere in the middle. It also depends on how you look after yourself, eat well and exercise.

The other funny thing is the weird idea some people have that they know what ancient Greeks looked like on the basis of highly idealising art works.

So the ancient population of Crete (speculated to have come from Turkey 9000 years ago) has remained in the gene pool of the modern day population of Crete.

That doesn't tell us what went on over on the mainland where beautiful Alexander from further north gave way to what we see today. Or perhaps it does, since most of mainland Greece was overrun by the darker Turks for centuries eventually the fair-haired Greeks of antiquity became as ugly as the Cretans. (Was the Minotaur really a beast or just a very swarthy Turk?)

Traveling south from Italy over to Croatia and Bosnia, then through Greece to Turkey the percentage of beautiful men evaporates by the mile.

Of course there are exceptions but do the miles and you will see.

Seriously R88, I don't deny Greece is having terrible problems right now, and I feel sorry for the women there, but I have yet to encounter a Greek man who isn't a pretentious douche.

Give me a German or a Dane any time of the day.

And, no, they're not just thriving upon a great economy: they're polite, they're upfront and they make an effort.

Slovakians, very friendly and open too.

Even people from Afghanistan are more pleasant than Greek men.

by Anonymousreply 10012/02/2014

R94 is absolutely right. Modern Greek men are entitled old babies. They are simply useless, and pretentious at that.

They seriously need education, and by that I mean real education, solving problems and being useful to society and others, not learning about a greatness past that they have nothing to do with anymore.
