During a recent trip to Zacatecas, Mexico, I noticed many people (particularly women) staring at me. There was also a notable lack of other Caucasians around, even in comparison to Guadalajara, Mexico, where I have spent significant time (and had relatively fewer stares). This lead to a conversation with a Mexican friend of mine who admitted that she, and other Mexican women, tend to find American men more attractive, both physically, and relationally.

So this is the lead-in to my tongue-in-cheek question:

Are there any resources I can use to find out where in the world I am the most attractive? Or stated another way: Where should I travel if I want to find the easiest date?

I envision a search engine that allows input something like:

I am a [man] from [the USA] who speaks [English] as a primary language, and am interested in [single] [women].

And it would then show me a list of localities (at least countries, if not regions/cities) where single women are especially attracted to people in my demographic.

If you're a man from any rich country, women in poorer countries will generally find you more interesting, regardless of exact nationality. Beyond that, it's not about your nationality, but personal characteristics (e.g. being non-disgusting and speaking the local language always help). – Jonik Jan 17 '12 at 18:52
If you mapped out who's attractive where you'd have a kickass Slashdot-and-BoingBoing-ready PhD thesis idea. Or you can ask the OkCupid blog if this is something they'd be willing to investigate using their big dataset: – SuperElectric Jan 18 '12 at 7:09
Maybe the sex tag needs to be extended. I don't see any value in a separate dating tag. Anyway for me this is an open ended list question, a bit off topic, and not very good. Specific questions would be better. – hippietrail Jan 18 '12 at 9:48
@hippietrail I'm not sure if dating is a synonym for sex for everyone – RoflcoptrException Jan 18 '12 at 10:25
The term dating is a vague euphemism and difficult to work with. If you're looking for sex (of paid or unpaid variety), that makes the question much more tractable. If you're looking for marriage, that's quite a minefield. – dbkk Jan 20 '12 at 7:37

One strategy could be to go to an area where there is a noticeable higher number of women than men (or the other way around). If there is a lack of suitable partners in town, people lower their expectations and take what they can get. So dating should be easier.

There are many places in the world where there are more men than women, but not so many where there are more women than men. On top of my head I remember Irkutsk and other Siberian towns because many men move to Western Russia for work.

Approximately how skewed was the ratio in places like Irkutsk? – Andrew Grimm Jan 19 '12 at 2:13
I don't know numbers, and it was not really noticeable on the street, but the locals there told me about it. So I guess it wasn't the best example for my point. – Peter Hahndorf Jan 19 '12 at 9:03
I overheard a discussion once where some guy was telling others that single men like them should go to Bosnia, which has a "deficit" of men due to relatively recent wars. Also, I think HS ran a story about Latvian women having a hard time finding decent, educated men. – Jonik May 8 '12 at 13:21

The best destinations for dating is here in India. The places that are hot destinations not because of the tourism but with the inclusion of open culture in society are--


Now lets talk about the locations around the world. These destinations are--

Loss Angels in USA
London in UK

Ankit - your answer doesn't explain anything - you've just listed cities. Loss Angels is not a city. And your Locations link just goes to Wikipedia. Could you please expand and explain your answer. – Mark Mayo Jan 18 '12 at 13:45
This answer was flagged for moderator attention. I wouldn't go so far as to delete the answer. Clearly, it has issues as listed in Mark's comment above, which is why I'm downvoting this. – Ankur Banerjee Jan 18 '12 at 15:28
I think there's no good answers because it's a bad question \-: – hippietrail Jan 18 '12 at 15:28
@hippietrail Very, very, very BAD question. – VMAtm Jan 19 '12 at 6:05
