this mythical creature, the Western Male.
I can proudly say atleast Polish men are in great physical shape compared to the rest of the continent.
Wow, wait a minute, now you're exaggerating lol
Maybe if Western Europe didn't sit around while we were battling Germany/Russia
Woah, "politics of memory" brought to a new level o_O
they can spend whatever they earn on their look
What? xD Come on, that's bull$hit. Men in Poland often think that caring too much after their looks is unmanly. And let's be honest, some men are simply lazy. Women usually put more effort in looking good, because they know how important it is.
there are very few 'extraordinarily' handsome men in Poland
Damn, you have some issues, dude o_O
There is no abundance of 'extraordinarily' handsome men in any country in the West or I would have heard about it and I would have seen it.
And I haven't. Even in Italy and France where women usually expect the hottest guys.
If I ever hear Polish women comparing Polish men vs men from the West they usually don't compare their physical features but the way they dress, the way they carry themselves, the way they behave, the way they treat women and what they say about women, their views, etc. ("Oh, Italian men are so cheerful, they smile all the time, they care after their looks, they pay you compliments and just walk up to you and chat up - this rarely happens to me in Poland! It's nice to be around them." etc. etc.)
If they compare the physical features they usually do it vs Southern men and that's usually about their complexion, colour of eyes and hair.
What a single man spends money on is very telling. I can get behind cars, sports, electronics, hobbies... but hair products? No, not a turn on at all.
That's true that it puts off most women when a man spends more time on taking care of his looks than women do lol
However, some basic care won't hurt anyone. On the contrary. For example, some men have dry skin and they don't do anything about it. I'm sure it wouldn't kill them if they used a body lotion after shower from time to time :P Touching dry skin is unpleasant. It's a bit distracting when during a foreplay you start thinking: "Geez, he has a skin like a grater, ewww." ;)
Sigh... The moment Zimmy jumps on board, he turns any thread into anti-feminist platform.
