Serbian Women Are Beautiful (Luckily Most Don't Know It)

We were having coffee in the courtyard of a neighbor's house yesterday morning when a man I knew came by with his wife. He's an average looking guy, pleasant enough but nothing special, although his eyes are a bit more intense and his body a bit more trim than his US counterpart average guy would be. The wife, however, was something else. A stunning beauty. Total knock out.

However, you could tell she didn't think she was anything extraordinary. Probably that's because she isn't. Serbian women are, on average, more beautiful than Americans ... or Germans or Austrians or Hungarians for that matter. It's a matter of beautiful bone structure mixed with nearly perfect posture and grace of bearing, strong healthy hair (even natural blondes), glowing olive skin tones (again even natural blondes), and those Serb eyes. Plus, until they hit middle age nearly no one is overweight. Not even a few pounds around the middle.

(The children and teens here are the same -- perfect posture, perfect skin, and rarely overweight.)

As I tried not to stare at my friend's wife, who was calmly prepping a fishing pole for her intended afternoon outing to the Danube, I thought, "If Tyra Banks saw an entire town of women like these while scouting for her America's Next Top Model show, the top of her head would pop off. It would be too much to choose from, overwhelming."

I think you will find a different situation in Belgrade, where they ALL know they are beautiful (even if they are not), and they love nothing more than smugly walking around the city or going to a fancy club/bar and oozing an aura of superiority around them. God forbid you try approaching their table or hitting on them (as a guy), if you are not covered in cash and fancy cars, chances are that you will be going home alone that night.

regarding to what milos said
in my experience, this is due because in belgrade the media influence is people is on par (at least very close) to that in usa/canada...

Thank you for this nice post, I totally agree with your observation.
When women said that other one is beautiful thats the truly big compliment!

Hello, yes I agree, your comment was a big compliment. It is pitty that they do not see their beauty as something serious that someone like Tyra can cash out :)

I've spent a week working in Serbia and still amazed with the beauty of Serbian women. Difficult to understand or explain, but it is incredible. I would say most of the beauty comes from the eyes, and their eyes reflect their souls and their souls remain full of life (that is the main difference with us). And then, those bodies, nothing sophisticated nor vain, just natural. I agree with you, specially when you summarize it all in these words: "those Serb eyes".

Serbian women ar very beautiful.
My fiance grew up in Germany and when he is back now, all women think he is stacked with money. It can be quite a problem as they dont care if he has a finace and a baby.

Well my friends!!!

What can I say, I'm married with a 47 yo Serbian, of course I'm 41, but she is REALLY BEAUTIFUL, she grows in Belgrade for what I understand, but Jesus!!! She cook for me, she wash my clothes, when I tell her that I help, she say no! I will do it, basically she gave me the life of a king, I am not rich and I have no car, but I treat her like a lady and she corresponds, I think if we give good things we will get the same, just be honest.

Rosemary, thanx for your kind words.
Milos, avoid fancy clubs/bars. It looks like you're only after oozing-an-aura-of-superiority women. Maybe you feel like less of a man without that kind of trophy? Serbian men are spoiled...

I have been dating one of the most amazing women I have ever met, additionally she is Serbian and also drop dead beautiful. Like you suggested she doesn't know it, which is too bad because I wish she would believe me when I tell her. I don't have much money, or a car as well. I do give and receive love with a fantastic intelligent, beautiful, kind woman.

I am a Serbian girl and I'm married to a Mexican man and we live in San Diego, and I totally agree with Mai and also with Marie, Serbian men are very spoiled.

In an extremely chauvinistic society like Serbian society, the grand majority of men are usually mean and unkind towards women mainly because they are used to be surrounded with extraordinary beauty till the point that they believe that if the woman doesn't stand their misbehavior, they'll have at least another 5 beautiful women to choose from immediately, and they even dare to say this out loud like if it was a feat.

Now I'm married to a Mexican man and I'm very happy with him, but although I trust him and I know he loves me, I don't like going to Serbia with him because I don't want him to go through so much temptation over there, because of the kind of special person that he is, and this kind of man simply does not exist in Serbia.
