spanish girls have better attitudes and are exotic obviously than mary who thinks coppers is the best craic ever like.
This attitude towards Irish women wouldn't by any chance be linked to your thread on viagra-related experiments would it?

Yep, they've actually got the highest rate for childhood obesity in the EU, so as fat kids tend to be fat adults this will only get worse.

This conclusion I have come to is that you go to a beach in Spain, you see forty/fifty slim, fit españolas sauntering around in biquinis and think "Spanish women are fit!!" Meanwhile what you're not seeing is the couple of hundred fat Spanish women peeking out at the hotties thinking "Skeenny beetch"
Yep, good old selective vision. I would still IMHO say though that in general the average say 28 woman(or man) in Madrid or Barcelona is of a smaller frame than the average 28 year old here. We seem to get "middle aged spread" here much earlier. More guys and gals that are slim at 18 are getting porky by 25. We've a small population too so we get fewer extremes. So while I would agree that you do see more gorgeous women in Madrid or Milan, you also see some serious, sweet jesus is that contagious munters too. Overall the Irish tend to be generally more "pleasant" looking without those extremes. We tend to be more solidly built overall as a population. You can really see that in airport queues. The Irish, UK and German lines tend to be stockier compared to the Southern European lines.

They wouldn't be alone in that. That would be a difference I've noticed in other countries(esp the Latin nations) compared to Ireland. You have more women(and men) here that self describe as "big/cuddly/curvy" when they're simply carrying extra fat. Our cultural cut off for porky seems to be at least two dress sizes/belt notches bigger. One ex of mine had a mate whose nickname(if they were being bitchy) was Gordita, little fatty. She was no bigger than a size 12. An Italian ex of mine had a similar sized woman in their group and again she was considered "fat". The rest of the women were size 6/8/10 and among their boyfriends/male mates there were maybe two who had the beginnings of a gut. That seems less culturally acceptable for want of a better word elsewhere again more in the Latin nations(though the Scandinavian and Eastern European nations would be similar IME).

alot of irish guys prefer women from europe cos they don't paint themselves orange and dress like slappers. lose the fake tan, fake nails, and fake eye lashes and put more effort in to the way you dress. dressing like a drag queen is NOT sexy.

The make-up is a huge thing, they start wearing it so young that their pores get clogged up and their skin gets bad so they use more and more make-up to cover up.

I also like the fact that they take pride in what they wear. I hate to see girls/women in tracksuits unless they are undertaking some form of exercise. I was in the supermarket yesterday and 80% of the girls were wearing tracksuits. It is slovenly, lazy and grossly unattractive. (same for men)

Of all the nations in the world, Spain's wimmins certainly wouldnt be top of my list....some absolute crackers obviously but every country has that. And they get away with far more because we are so in awe of their fab tans.
As someone else mentioned, they are well tight with money, not attractive.

This is a generalisation. But generalisations tend to be generally true.

I was out and about in Dublin on Saturday night and the fashion sported by a fair number of the fairer sex was mind-boggling. One young lady had a dress that was so short the bottom of her ass cheeks were out the bottom of it - and she did not have a big ass....so the dress was hip length....

Saw a number of spanish-looking tourists bemused by the whole display.

It's not just that Irish men might prefer Spanish women it's that most Irish people, given half the chance, would swap our going-out "culture" for their's any day of the week.

Also us stocky northern types wear sweaters as opposed to draping them over our shoulders like big poofs.

Also we are capable of queueing as opposed to standing in a mob babbling at everyone and not actually getting anywhere.

In fairness I've walked up the likes of camden street with fordin girls who looked in bemusement at the hordes of native wimmens who were actually hookers as far as they could tell, although they did admire said wimmens ability to withstand the cold given their lack of clothing.

You are not being pedantic, you are being wrong, I was creating two categories of female that most guys probably wouldn't bone.

Your misplaced winky face is dumb.

Alcohol and terrible diet. Particularly over the college years.
