While traditional courting rituals and dating customs have been evolving over the years, re-entering the dating arena still seems somewhat bland, and disheartening. It’s not fun to embark on a journey to couple-hood when the pickings are slim, especially if you are truly limited to a small population of single people in your corner of the world. Dating abroad presents a variety of new options to expand your, er, dating palette.

When you limit yourself to dating domestically, depending on where you live, that could mean you are only dated like-minded, similar looking people. But when you realize that there are a whole world of single people out there, the possibilities become endless and exciting. Recently we decided to conduct a poll amongst our American members to discover which nationalities top your list of the sexiest nationalities on the planet. We weren’t surprised that America wasn’t the top choice for either sex.

The Top Ten Sexiest Nationalities for Women:

  1. Colombian     Famous Face: Shakira
  2. Brazilian         Famous Face: Camila Alves
  3. American        Famous Face: Jennifer Lawrence
  4. Spanish          Famous Face: Penelope Cruz

  8. Bulgarian       Famous Face: Nina Dobrev
  9. Swedish          Famous Face: Malin Akerman
  10. Italian             Famous Face: Carla Bruni

 

The Top Ten Sexiest Nationalities for Men:

  1. British             Famous Face: Prince Harry
  2. Irish                 Famous Face: Colin Farrell
  3. Brazilian         Famous Face: Rodrigo Santoro
  4. Swedish           Famous Face: Alexander Skarsgard

    Diego Boneta is mexican! And I think you’re missing “Argentinian,Turkish and Germans and Algerians” when it comes to “Most Attractive men” and a must in this list are italian men because they’re the hottest in the world

    Greetings from Nicaragua

  3. Gaby says:

    I agree, but you forgot Puerto Rican girls in your girls list hahahaha. Whats up with JLO?

  4. Veronika says:

    Travelers Digest’s Top Ten Cities With The Most Beautiful Woman says Kiev, Ukraine is ‘without a doubt, home to the world’s most beautiful women. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2162181/Ukrainian-Swedish-women-named-worlds-best-looking.html

  5. Mercedes says:

    It fascinates me that the writer was able to choose a “famous face” for the United States. Ryan Gosling and Jennifer Lawrence? Could have easily been George Clooney and Robin Givens, two much more deserving people.

  6. SugarMeDown says:

    And not one of these women are African American. Thanks for helping the stereotype that African American women (Beyonce, Halle Berry,Kerry Washington) are not beautiful. Some women (and men) and this list look very…basic but are considered beautiful. Interesting ….

    • JennMT says:

      To be fair, Beyonce, Halle and Kerry are all “American” nationalities. This is not about ethnicity, but nationality.

    • SuiteLife says:

      This doesn’t mean that black women aren’t beautiful. Don’t look to these polls to affirm your place in the world. My opal complexion has never managed to hinder me from compliments and interest in the opposite sex, no matter his nationality or ethnicity.
      Besides beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Miley Cyrus #1 on Maxim 100 for example. Really? :: shakes head ::

    • Natasha Patrick says:

      SugarMeDown, that is actually not true…. Brazil and Colombia have a very large black population

  7. Cher says:

    Thailand should have been up there!

  8. Oliver says:

    Women? Argentina. Game, set, match.

    Men? We might not have the dark thing going on or the sexy accent, but we’re so much cooler than any other dudes on the planet. There’s no foreign equivalent of the confident American male anywhere in the world.

    • td says:

      What about the ozzie or kiwi man – down under men are usually both cool and confident, & tanned and toned.

    • Adrian says:

      I beg to differ about, any confident man from Wales. With that accent and classy dress, any American man would look akward at best. And I’m not even from Wales, I just hear the wife and her friends talk about it. Cheers.

  15. Rogger says:

    Just arrived from a business trip to Buenos Aires, Bogota and Panama City and it just comfirmed me: Panama women are the most beautiful, and from them I am lucky enough to have the most beautiful of them. They have the nicest eyes, body, heart and dancing rythm from all the world, and you find them enveloped in all known skin colors.

  16. Lines says:

    I agree but with my favourite Canadian Gabriel Aubry ; )

  20. Lorenzo Anderson says:

    I think the best example of colombian beauty is Sofia Vergara, Shakira is not really pretty in my opinion.

  21. Sonny says:

    Dear Miss Travel:

    Not sure who your readership is, but you’ve conflated ethnicity with nationality. For example, both John Stamos and Mark Consuelos are American in nationality but of Greek and Spanish descent or ethnicity, respectively. Carla Bruni is French of Italian descent. However, she may hold dual citizenship/nationalities. (A few countries allow dual citizenship.)

    Puerto Rican is NOT a nationality. Those who’re born in Puerto Rico are Americans in nationality, by birth.

    The American or US nationality includes people of ALL ethnicities of the world, from African to Roma, from German to Indian and Vietnamese.

    Nationality refers to the country of one’s citizenship and it says so on one’s passport. By the way, John Stamos was born in California and Oliver Martinez was born in Spanish Morocco (for your geography lesson.)

    This type of writing not only keeps your readers stay further ill-informed, but also espouses racial stereotypes by exclusion.

    Thank you.

    • johne says:

      Thats a stupid argument, then by what you’re saying, the only Americans who should be on the list are Native Americans and USA is built on immigration, same goes for South America as they are full of Spanish, Germans and Portuguese, Australia should only have aboriginies etc, I think I made my point.

      BTW I’m Irish and we’re delighted with this list :D

      • James says:

        Carla Bruni is Italian, born and raised! She’s married to the French ex-premier, that doesn’t make her French. http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carla_Bruni
        Also the article doesnt mix anything up, it did a poll on sexiest (not most beautiful) according to peoples opinions (not to be mistaken as facts).

        Puerto Rico is a country ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puerto_Rico ) it is part of the US commonwealth the same as Canada is part of the British commonwealth (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canada). Would you say that Canada is not a nation?

        Sonny, since your quite obviously able to access the web, I suggest you use it to gather a few facts for yourself, you might learn something.

    And what happened to my country is perhaps not remembered that Dominican Republic has beauties of women Zoe Saldana, Amelia Vega and others. existten too sexy men in my country …

  43. ssh says:

    I don’t think Price Harry is attractive.

  44. Ramonster says:

    Totally agree. Having traveled to 42 countries in 5 continents, I always noticed how many of the women I passed on the street were attractive. In Bogota and Moscow, I swear I strained my neck because of the extraordinary number of beautiful women.

    I think Venezuelans are overrated because the only good looking ones are those that enter the pageants. And it’s questionable as to how many cosmetic procedures they’ve undergone. Scandinavians are overrated as are Brazilians, although Brazilians have terrfici figures. Few Italian women look like Sophia Loren. More often they look like Francesca Schiavone.

  45. Amanda says:

    No offence but a list that puts British, Irish and Scottish men together must be wrong lol, Has anyone seen British men, they are fat and ugly lol. and a correction: Scottish is British. What about the Argentinians, Italians, Turkish, Cuban and Australian Men???? LOL crazy list. Yeah Colombian women are sexy but Brazilian ones should be on the top spot, followed by Russian girls :)

  49. Daniel says:

    Listing British and Scottish separately, this is why Americans should never compile surveys regarding nationality.
    It is pretty embarrassing and cringeworthy to say the least.

  50. ALINA says:

    ABSOLUTELY 100% CORRECT W/ COLOMBIAN WOMEN BEING THE MOST BEAUTIFUL, SEXIEST, PRETTIEST, KINDEST!!!!! I SHOULD KNOW….I AM ONE!!!

  51. CLAYSOFT says:

    You failed to mention kenya.How comes?hahaha

  52. Daniel says:

    Surprised Cubans are not on that list! We sure do things right when it comes to being hot =P
    Famous faces: Eva Mendes, Anabelle Acosta, William Levy?

  53. shrikant herwathe says:

    thank you JessieB for attracting attention to this side of the hemisphere, people ot there generally forget about this part of the planet especially under the belly of Asia what is known as Indian subcontinent, a lot of interesting people , faces and things happening here you know to add spice to the lives of people out there, – Ajun Rampal, Chitrangada singh, Aishwarya rai, Priyanka Chopra ( that is two Miss worlds in a row ) , Rahul Gandhi (possibly the cutest politician in world),,Amitabh Bachan ( A singer , A mega star, Atv host, a cult figure for over 4 decades to more than 150 crore peole in India , Pakistan & BanglaDesh besides a huge fan fiollowing all over nthe world I bet no Hollywood star or star from any other film industry can match that nor that voice or his Charisma), we have many more coming in India Pakistan Bangla desh and even right under their noses in Hollywood but they are simply color blind.

  56. Jovana says:

    Serbs are not on the list ? U probably have not been to Serbia, or any country in Balkan. People there are tall , beautiful and most of them are not fat. And France women are so classy , men also, but they are too short. I love Spanish men, but women not so much. British guys? Is this a joke? Women from Europa don’t like British men. Russians, men or women, aren’t attractive. I can’t tell about people from south America, I never been there. Americans are not ugly, but most of them don’t care about there look, they are to fat. In every county there is a lot of people with pretty faces, so I respect your opinion, but I don’t agree with it. In the end, Serbian girls are most beautiful, Spanish and Serbian guys are the hottest :)!

    God bless …

  57. imabeyours says:

    I am half Norweigan with French/native Canadian very exotic looking. I often get asked if I am Eastern European, even Japanese. Yes exotic is Sexy!!

  58. imabeyours says:

    I must add to my last comment … confidence is sexy as hell, you can look sexy and hot but if no confidence that is a total turn off for most:)

  59. Pro says:

    @Jovana Well people from Bosnia are known to be fat though. But are people from the Balkan tall yeah?
    Anyways I totally agree with your comment on the British guys. British guys most attractive men worldwide? Right. The people who’ve been asked this question probably have never been to England and think of indeed prince Harry or British actors or whatever. Or the cute accent (American pov).

  60. [...] are the sexiest women in the world. Well, so the American single men that use the dating site, Miss Travel, said in a recent survey. Having said that, the same survey found that Englishmen are the sexiest [...]
