I'm curious as to how women of color, and in particular African American women, view white European men. Would you be open to dating white men from European countries? Why or why not? What, if anything, attracts you to white European men?

I'm black and I'd love it! I've always had a preference for white men and guys from other countries are always way better than American men. Every time I leave the country guys there make me feel like a princess, it's great. I was in Brazil a few years ago and the guys there were amazing, they were so sweet and it wasn't just people who were being paid to deal with you (like waiters) it was everyone, random guys on the street, guys in the car etc.
But as far as Europeans go I'd definitely date one if I had the chance. When I was in England and France the guys there were great too. What's been nice about guys in every country I've been too is that they still act like men, whereas American guys have gotten in to this incredible annoying habit of being whiny, annoying, submissive, and in some cases feminine in their behavior and the way they approach things. Obviously this isn't all American guys but it's enough to make it noticeable (and enough for people to start writing articles about how women really don't feel they need men anymore). But European guys just act differently, they carry themselves differently and they seem way more secure in themselves and realize they don't have to be some crazy GI Joe macho man to be masculine. That and they're in better shape. I'm sure the general diet of Europeans has a lot to do with it but in Europe guys are looking at soccer players as the physical ideal whereas in America it's football and baseball players who aren't always in the best shape. European guys still seem to believe in working hard as opposed to thinking things should be given to them just because. Oh yeah, and you can't point out how Europeans are better than Americans without bringing up the cute accents, lol2
