Why are mediterannean men good looking? - Lamaman - 03-12-2012 05:39 AM
I have noticed that Mediterrenean men, which includes Greece, Italy, Algeria, Morocco, Egypt, Israel, Tunisia, Spain, Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Libyan, Syrian have this unique look about them, all have good genetics and good looks, infact they have this unique look about them that's different in a VERY good way. They also have good aesthetics and skin glow, what is their lifestyle, what is there diet and what do they do to have this good attractive skin glow along with good looks/great bodies?

Firstly - not all of them are. I'm originally from the mediterranean area of France and can tell you for certain that they are not all super hot
Secondly - they spend a lot of time outside and playing sports or having physical jobs so they tend to be in decent shape, at least until they get to middle age when all the wine and charcuterie catch up to them and they get fat. The food tends to be very fresh and healthy (and delicious!) with lots of vegetables. Pretty self explanatory really...

Also, meditarranean men come across as much more dominant/alpha and they escalate much more aggressively. I've heard multiple (Dutch) girls talk about how those guys can give them looks that just melt them. So that may play into it as well. Of course this is a generalisation, but on average they do differ in this way. And, Italian men are gay and spend inordinate amounts of time in front of the mirror.

LOL. I understand, having my photo published and all, how you may easily come to that conclusion, but let me assure you not all of them are. One thing that seem to be generally true is that there's a lot more partying (generally speaking) in the Mediterranean countries than in central and north Europe, probably due to the warmer climate and all that, but looks are more or less standard.
I've been to US, Switzerland and Holland, and met people from England and France... I haven't found any significant difference in average looks. One thing that could be (I haven't enough experience to confirm, that's just a feeling) is that we're a little more straight forward... I've perceived French and Swiss girls to be much more timid that we are... but again, that's just a feeling I get.

Well then how do the good looking ones become good looking and get glowing bronze skin, what do they eat, exercise, and use on their skin? Olive oil?

Dude, you too would be "good looking" if you had to put up with the virginal Madonna's and had to go through 30 dates before you'd get some action. It's a bloody sausage feast in most bars down there and only the fittest of the fittest get to play the field.
I hear things are changing (I'll be 35 soon and haven't lived in my home country for 13 years) but there are still a lot of differences to most evolved (and feminized) countries in northern Europe and north America.
And there's no secret to good nutrition, exercise, dressing well and tanning. It just takes work, commitment and/or social pressure.

Where did you hear that? Of course 13 years ago it was kind of slower (but not that much) and nowadays is quite easy to find one night stands... I won't say every girl is ready for it but most will sleep with you on the same night... Well at least it is in Spain.
RE: Why are mediterannean men good looking? - Alvar - 03-12-2012 01:44 PM
You're sure about most women? Yes, I was kind of exaggerating, and probably my views reflect me growing up in a small town rather than a big city but I do think the environment is definitely more competitive for men in those countries, when it comes to SNLs and nightclubs. And that shows in guys behaviour and how they handle themselves.
RE: Why are mediterannean men good looking? - Chaos - 03-12-2012 01:51 PM
I'm sure... and by the way I don't think that a girl willing to have a one night stand with you is actually a slut. There's a lot of cases, but if you prefer I would put it like this, I've found most girls from 18 onwards are sexually confident and open, and will have a night stand if so they desire it... without having to go over x dates... Of course there're some cases where she simply doesn't want to at that precise moment because she's looking for something more or just isn't in the mood, but there isn't (generally speaking) a religious or otherwise implanted believe in them implying they should wait xxx time to sleep with you... In fact I'm so used to the contrary that whenever it doesn't happen, it kind of fucks up with my mind.
RE: Why are mediterannean men good looking? - Lamaman - 03-13-2012 01:32 AM
Well I'm trying to go for a meditteranean look, which I think I can pull off as I have been confused for one of those ethnicities before. I'm not sure if I can completely come off as say an Algerian person as I am not light skinned enough to match that but I am a sort of brown/but also sort of olive. I was looking through pictures of the good looking stylish, North African/Mediterrenean looking men and perhaps if I did workout like a mule to perfectly sculpt my body, then I think I can look like them. Everything except my head+arms+legs are brown/olivish but the rest of my body is completely olive/Medi White skin, which is something I don't understand. So I'm wondering how this is going to work and what diet+other things I would have to do that I don't know about.

you don't understand why the parts of your body that are exposed to the sun are darker? Are you fucking serious?

No, those body parts that is pure olive, do not really shift color even when exposed to sun light, whereas the rest of my body just either gets darker or just stays a pure yellowish mixture depending on the sun light in accordance to the type of weather/season where the sun is shining.
Technically if you saw my face, you would assume I was some sort of "Brown dude", but the unexposed parts to sun light is almost Italian olive colored skin. The parts of my body that are the brown parts really don't lighten or change color when I'm in periods not exposed to sun light.
RE: Why are mediterannean men good looking? - Mark - 03-13-2012 05:04 AM
I think you should worry less about ethnicity and worry more about just making yourself the best man possible, regardless of skin color or region.
My two cents.
RE: Why are mediterannean men good looking? - Leo - 03-13-2012 06:29 AM
That's common sense!
RE: Why are mediterannean men good looking? - Lamaman - 03-13-2012 04:26 PM
Of course it's common sense, otherwise I wouldn't be doing it now would I? But let's not get into the business of that was the best you could do BS mentality and nothing really matters or can't change things, it's all in your mindset and it's all your fault for not getting anything and then proceed to make up stories about some guy you know from X miracously getting so many girls when such guy doesn't even exist in reality as you can't even sight such people.

Lot of them are really hairy and have unibrows.
RE: Why are mediterannean men good looking? - Reesays - 03-13-2012 11:06 PM
I thought Mediterannean meant Italian, French, Spaniard, Portuguese, and maybe greece mainly. Have not seen many women go crazy over the North African and Turkish kind of guys.
RE: Why are mediterannean men good looking? - Lamaman - 03-14-2012 12:20 AM
It actually means countries of the former Roman empire and the byzantine empire, which was primarily based in the Mediterranean basin but also the Middle East+Eastern Europe. The Roman empire was a huge melting pot of different ethnic groups from Africa and different parts of Europe+ME, hence you see why there is little variation, very large similarities in features+skin color across North Africa, the Middle East, and especially Southern Europe. This is also why the men from those regions have good genetics, good looks, good bodies, good aesthetics, a great culture+food associated with them. It's the result of thousands of years of interbreeding and competition between different races & ethnic groups; hence you get the sexy exotic hot aggressive Mediterranean and Middle Eastern guy.

Why are you answering your own question here?
Look at what you wrote at first. If we were being naive, we'd assume that you were being genuine in your question, and that you'll really wanted an explanation. But once a few guys have had their say, you jump in with an answer that shows you knew what you wanted to think all along.
You posted this question as an attempt to confirm your own beliefs about guys coming from Europe/The Mediterranean being better looking than you. That's bullshit. Stop making excuses about race and get out there proving why Bengali men are attractive to women, because they too can be.
RE: Why are mediterannean men good looking? - Jon - 03-14-2012 12:35 AM
Ugh. Mediteranian people are people on countries that BORDER the mediteranian, not countries that were part of the roman empire. Germany was part of the roman empire but it's not mediteranian.
Nobody means eastern european when they say mediteranian.

It's all of the olive oil, dude. I recommend you lather yourself in olive oil, hop in some Speedos, and start rolling around the white sands of Ibiza.
The bitches and ceviche will come in no time.
RE: Why are mediterannean men good looking? - Reesays - 03-14-2012 12:49 AM
In general the Southern Europeans are not open to outsiders. In fact when I lived in France a lot of the Algerians and Morrocoans were hated. In Italy I have heard it is the same thing. They do not look similar either, despite the stereotype of dark and swarthy, a lot of Italians have brown hair and white skin which may tan due to the weather. Dark features are not really that common.
In fact, in my experience Middle Eastern and Italians/Southern Europeans look nothing alike. Majority of the times, both look significantly different. Also the reputations of the countries differ, most women for example would not be as open to going to Turkey as they would a country like Italy for example.
RE: Why are mediterannean men good looking? - Lamaman - 03-14-2012 12:51 AM
True, the Mediterranean means that location primarily, however different people from different parts of Europe (including Germany, Eastern Europe etc) came into that region because of the Roman Empire and interbreed ed with various people from across Africa and the Middle East hence why you have White Syrian Christians, Lebanese whites, Italians with African features, Algerian people with light to brown shades with heavy euro features, you have some North Africans that look like Germans etc. Sorry I stated that wrong, I should have been more clear.
Sorry if I came off wrongly by your perception of me, however think about the fact that many blacks try to play characters and stereotypes of black athletes+musicians for social reasons and for women. You can also see White women tan to look sort of like Southern Europeans, some white women dyeing their hairs specific dark colors, Asians vying for guido haircuts getting skin whitening regimens, double eyelid surgery, imitating blacks etc, so I ask, why is it particularly wrong to play a stereotype w/ a specific look if it can give social dexterity and more access to higher caliber girls when you can actually sort of play it?
Interestingly even Bengali's have a wide assortment of looks too, there are Bengali's that look sort of like Middle Eastern people, Italians, Mexicans, blacks, Polynesian, Central Asian, even some that look like East Asians. I happen to fall in that line between the Middle Eastern, typical Indian, Italian mixture, mestizo, pretty much the latter, so try to understand where I am coming at here man.
RE: Why are mediterannean men good looking? - Reesays - 03-14-2012 12:56 AM
the amount of hatred Indians have for their own skin and trying to pass for other things is just unreal
Look guy, never in a million years will you as a Bengali or any type of Indian be able to pass for a Southern European. I heard from my family that they are Northern Indian, mom is really light skinned but still, facial features and other things make it obvious.
Mediterranean men are loved by women due to media, that is it. Also a lot of them put efforts into their looks, lift weights, and take care of themselves.
Same with Black and Latino guys. Quit trying to be like them and be one of those South Asians that puts South Asian guys on the map alright.
You are making it seem like the second a girl hears you are Brown she is going to run the other way as opposed to you being Italian. Makin a lot of us insecure brah!

Reesays you have never even seen a picture of me, so I don't understand what you are saying here. I have been confused for different things in the past before so I'm pretty sure I know what I am coming at. You also haven't seen Syrians or have been to the countries of Lebanon, Levantine etc. Otherwise you would know what I mean when a lot of them look like white people. I have seen Jordanians that look like pure white people. Turks are originally an altaic people that came from Asia but interbred with Balkans people, so you could assume that Turks were a white people but they aren't.
