12 Most Important Traits of European Women Rated 1-10 (+ Overall Score)
The first thing I will tell you about today is some crucial characteristics of European women.
When you are looking to jump right into international dating, it is important to understand the nature of the women you will be wooing in the future so that you can use the information for your advantage.
To know what are European women like you will have to experience them first-hand, however, here are some characteristics of typical European women. (Exceptions are possible, so keep an open mind and be flexible).
I will start with the most obvious feature of all- their physical traits.
What Physical Traits Distinguish European Women from Other Women
1. Physical Appearance
Talking about the physical appearance of the women of Europe could last forever.
There are so many nationalities and the girls’ physical appearances are extremely different from country to country.
There are bodacious Latinas-like Spanish girls and Portuguese girls; next you have elegant French ladies, tall and blonde Scandinavian and Russian women, and so on.
Basically, European women body type is so diverse so any body-type you can imagine you can find in Europe- tall or short, fair or dark, slim or curvy,… Anything goes; you just need to know where to look for a certain type.
This is why I gave this section a pure 10- there is simply something for everybody. And, trust me, dude, European chicks are hot, and if you can’t find at least one to your liking, there is something horribly wrong with you.
European women are generally pretty healthy. This is because they still cook at home, and even when they do not, and eat out, there are only a few nations who resort to junk food which would cause them to not be as healthy as possible.
With the growing awareness of the importance of exercising, my impression is that they are pretty active, going to the gyms and fitness programs that help them keep the weight off, have healthy stress release techniques, and a few hours only for themselves.
Stress in industrial countries is the only thing that may keep them from being at the top of their strength.
Longevity is another thing where European women have the upper hand over European men, let alone the Americans.
3. How stylish they are?
European diversity is culpable for an average grade regarding style.
There are nations in which the girls are ever so stylish -France, Croatia, Sweden,…
However, there are nations like Bulgaria and even Russia when style fails them on more than one occasion…
The other countries are right there in the middle with half the girls being really stylish, and others not so much.
They do, mostly try to look feminine anyway.
4. Facial Beauty
There are hot European girls to meet any beauty standard you have; you just have to know what kind of girls you like.
There are numerous lists of European countries with the most beautiful women, and each list is different.
Why is that? not everybody likes the same things. Some like their women blue-eyed and some brown-eyed.
All in all, you can find beautiful European girls in literally any country you visit.
There is something about any ethnicity that makes a woman beautiful.
The really important thing about European women and what makes them beautiful is that they take care of themselves.
I have never met a woman who did not use this face cream or another, and this or that conditioner.
They are also masters of make-up and are capable of highlighting their best and hiding their worst features.
Additional Rating – The Tinder 1000 Swipe Rating
On top of the four physical trait ratings for European women, we have also created our own additional rating from the European girls we see on Tinder. We call it the 1,000 Tinder swipe rating. It is extremely accurate and gives a very good overall picture of the single women and how attractive they are.
This is how it works.
We swiped through 1000 different profiles in all of the major cities in European countries and took note of how many beautiful women there are. We jotted down how many 8’s, 9’s and 10’s there are based on their profile pictures. Here is a quick breakdown.
- 0-100 is poor
- 100-200 is OK
- 200-300 is Good
- 300 – 400 Is Incredible
- 400 + is Mindblowing (There are only a few of these)
With a Tinder Plus subscription, you can teleport to anywhere in the world and swipe for yourself. Find out more below In the section about how to meet European women. Also, make sure to check out my other country guides to see how their Tinder scores compare.
What Different Personality Traits European Women Have from Other Women
Now that you are physically attracted to sexy European women, let’s see if they have something to keep you linger on for more than just a few nights of fun.
Are they soft and forgiving, or temperate and fiery? You will see in a few moments.
1. Do they Like Going out and Having Fun?
The answer to this is- absolutely yes!
It is no wonder that many of the party capitals of the world are actually in Europe.
Depending on the country, though, there are some differences in how much they party. Some girls like to stay out all night dancing in clubs while others prefer house parties and chilling with friends.
All in all, wherever you are, you are bound to have a good time.
In some more patriarchal countries sexy European girls may go out to clubs a little less than in other countries, however, they will always find a way to have fun, even during the day.
2. Chill Factor
This depends on what you consider a chill factor.
Usually, they will be pretty chill with you going out with your guy friends, and watching football games (soccer in the US) a couple of times a week. (watching football games in Europe is a huge thing).
They will even be okay with going out with your friends instead of her on weekends.
What your European girlfriend will never tolerate is as much as flirting with another woman.
The reactions could be diverse, the Italian girls will rip your head off, the German ladies will give you a cold shoulder, and some of them will just ignore you for days.
If you think that is chill…
Loyalty is a big thing in Europe.
The majority of typical European girls regardless of their nationality will have at least the basic traditional values as guides in their lives.
So, they will not cheat. There are always exceptions, though, so if you had a different experience, it is possible.
But what has come to my attention is – they will not forgive you flirting or cheating while you are in a relationship, she can always look for another, however, if you are already married and you have a family, she will loyally stand by your side in order to keep the family together (especially in patriarchal countries).
4. Good as Mothers
What should a woman do to be considered a good mother?
Women in Europe pretty much go 2 ways- either they are overprotective or they are very carefree in regards to their children.
Swedish or Norwegian, even English women tend to let their babies go free early on- teach them how to take care of themselves, and just give them a little nudge when needed.
On the other hand, Croatian or Montenegrin women tend to cling to their children even when they are adults and married themselves.
(Fun fact, in these countries, young people live with their families until marriage).
All of them are very attentive and spend a lot of time with their children when they are little, they make time for their children even when they have a successful career.
Mostly, they are used to do the majority of parenting themselves, the father is less included.
5. Meeting and Talking to New People
Single European women, especially when they are single, and even when they are not, like to meet new people and hear new stories.
This does not mean they will flirt with anyone they come across. They will only enjoy hearing life stories and experiences and share their own as well.
They will do it with guys, girls, teenagers and the elderly without exception.
There is a beauty in diversity and something to learn or an interesting thing to hear from anybody. There are few subjects that are considered taboo, you should know.
6. Are they Romantic?
Well, this is a tricky situation.
Mostly they are, some more than others. For example, the French ladies expect romance to be classic and suave (like in the old Hollywood movies, Italian and Spanish are hot-blooded so they expect loud expression of emotions and grand gestures, while Swiss and German ladies would say romance is overrated).
If you like your women romantic, check out how romantic a specific nationality is and go from there. There is absolutely no generalization about this.
And even if you go to Spain where they love grand gestures, you might come across a fiery girl practicing her right to feminism, saying that being romantic and sending her roses is not a desirable modern-day quality.
My European girlfriends all enjoy small romantic expressions of attention, though…
When it comes to sexuality I will share my experience with you without any hesitation.
European girls are not very easy to get into bed. This comes from the fact that they still have a patriarchal upbringing. The situation is a little less strict in pro-American countries with a bit more open minded mindset, but South and East European girls may really give you a hard time getting them to bed, especially if this is the only thing you are looking for.
Which, mind you, does not mean that they are not sexual. Extremely sexual.
European women in bed, once you have proven yourself worthy of the privilege, are very fiery and passionate. Even in those countries that are stereotypically considered cold and distant.
8. Gringo Card – How Likely are They to Date Foreigners
I said before that single European girls like t mingle with new people, meeting them out and about, you drew a good card here.
European females travel a lot during their 20s and 30s. They are still usually single at that age so they tend to live life to the fullest. Traveling across Europe is quite easy so they gladly do it to meet new cultures and new people.
Even when they do not travel, there are tourists coming all over the year (depending on the country again – Austria is the liveliest in the winter months, and Spain in the summer, for example), so they have the chance to meet new people from different countries.
If they are visiting neighboring countries, chances are the languages are similar, or that they know some basic words if it is not, which facilitates the communication, and they start getting on very well with the newcomers.
They are helpful if not friendly, so if you decide to approach and meet a European woman, you can. The success of the endeavor will depend on your charm and technique.
Yes, European women are sexy and independent and this is what the world is about; women being independent.

Where to Meet European Women
If you are wondering where to meet European girls, the most obvious answer would be, to, of course, go to Europe. This is where they are the most relaxed- in their native country and where they can shine the brightest.
But if you want to dip your toe into the pretty European girls dating pool before actually going to any of the many European countries I suggest trying some of the international dating websites.
There are many of them, but I chose InternationalCupid as my favorite for dating a European woman since it is mainly targeted at Americans dating Europeans.
InternationalCupid is great if you do not have a specific nation in mind so you can contact a girl from any European country since the majority of active members are from the US and Europe.
The sign-up process is quite standard, like for any other dating website. It takes about 3 minutes to complete. You will be required to provide basic information and up to 5 photos, or you can use your Facebook account to make the registration process even easier.
You can add more information about yourself and the preferences regarding the partner you are seeking later on, which I strongly encourage you to do.
The website provides matches for each information you provide (indicated by a green circle or a red x), plus a verified badge that increases your visibility.
Making contact is possible in multiple ways like sending hearts and replying to messages for free.
You can only initiate contact by sending messages if you are a premium user.
There is a chatroom and you can use extensive filters to look for a match(by nationality, location, appearance, and so on). If you are a premium user you have more filters available than a standard user.
There is an app available for Android users that has the same features as the website.
The membership price is upper-moderate, but it is worth it. I have tried it out on several occasions and managed to meet European girls.
One of the best features this website has is the message translation feature. This comes truly handy if you are trying to date a girl who does not speak English well enough for written communication.
Traveler’s Guide for Meeting European Women
Now, if you have reached this point, you have probably decided to actually visit Europe and at least one of its wonderful cities where you can find out what are European women like in relationships first-hand.
As I already said, Europe is full of party cities so there are dozens of great cities where you can meet hot European chicks, whether to spend a few wild nights or commit to a relationship with.
In my experience, the top three are Berlin, Barcelona, and Prague.
1. Berlin, Germany
If you are traveling through Europe, Berlin should be on your list.
The accommodation, the food, and the drinks are very cheap. The people are friendly, and since it is a popular location for European youth to visit, you may meet girls from other countries in Europe, not just Germany.
The nightlife is rich and diverse. There are clubs for literally any type of music and parties you like, everything from jazz to house and trance, Latin and pop.
You can go low key, or sign up for a full night of dancing (from 1 a.m. to 8 a.m.).
The best and most popular clubs to visit while you are in Berlin are:
- Berghain & Panorama Bar- for techno lovers
- Sisyphos- provides a unique and original partying with diverse content
- Salon Zur Wilden Renate- clubbing in a circus is the description I heard most often
- Chalet – open 7 days a week, offers a hip experience
- ://about blank – 2 dance floors- techno and popular music to dance to
- Stattbad – offers a great line-up of world-famous DJs
- Watergate – great to meet girls, hip and fancy
If by some chance, you are not into partying or would like to meet a local girl during the day, you can visit many of Berlin’s coffee houses or some of its landmarks in which case you can just casually start up a casual conversation, or ask for some details about the location.
If you like, check these out:
- The Brandenburg Gate
- Reichstag Building
- Museum Island
- Berliner Philharmonie
- Gropius Bau
2. Barcelona, Spain
The hot weather provides for equally hot and steamy nights, especially during summer.
There are many restaurants and bars for you to go to, and you can visit beach parties (they are legendary). If you decide to go to a club, here is a list of the ones I found most exciting (though make an effort not to look like you are coming from the beach though.)
- Pacha Barcelona – world-famous club, world-famous DJs, party Ibiza-style
- Sala Apolo – open 7 days, each night different style
- Opium – international beach club with DJs like Tiesto and Avicii
- Jamboree Dance Club – for all the hip-hop lovers
- Bikini – perfect for students and younger crowd
- Otto Zutz – modern and hip with RnB, hip hop and pop music
There are so many landmarks in Barcelona that you can visit during the day, and meet either a cute local girl who can help you get around when you get ( or act as you got ) lost or a fun tourist doing quite the same things as you are, which means you have the same interests to tart with.
Landmarks to visit are:
- Park Guell
- La Sagrada Familia
- Casa Mila
- Casa Batillo
- Palace of Catalan Music
- Gothic Quarter
- These are just a few, and there are more so get researching.
3. Prague, Czech Republic
Another central-European city with rich history and landmarks to see.
Besides the clubs I will tell you about, Prague has great tavernas and pubs where you can try various kinds of beer. Do you think it is not special? Let me remind you that the Czech Republic is famous for its breweries.
Where to go?
- Chapeau Rouge – several levels of great music
- Music Club Zlaty Strom – a safe bet for any taste in music
- Karlovy Lazne – the biggest club in central Europe (it has elevators!)
- Hemingway Bar – Prague’s best cocktail bar
- The Pub – pour your own beer with your own table beer tap
- Mecca – a true Mecca for house and techno
Some of the cultural and historical landmarks that you can visit in this out-of-the-fairytale city are:
- Staromestske namesti
- Charles Bridge
- Old Town Hall with Astronomical Clock
- The Vrtba Garden
- Church of Our Lady before Tyn
And if you are feeling particularly romantic, you can book a boat cruise on the river Vltava. It is a tourist attraction, so you can meet many girls who are eager to share their experience in Prague.
Just do not waste time, the cruise is fairly short, so use your best moves right in the beginning.
Pros and Cons of Dating a European Woman
If you are ready to hear some more European girl dating tips and if you would like to know what are they like in a relationship, continue reading.
There is no need to fear the different cultures but there is always room for compromise, and with these pieces of information you will know what you will be getting into. (Or not, because every nation and every woman is different, this is just my experience, but anyway, I hope you score!)
1. Fun and Carefree
Dating a European girl is fun because they are fun. There will probably never be a dull moment.
If nothing else, you can always ask her to show you around her town, and take you to her favorite places. Everything will be new for you and she will be able to tell you her anecdotes.
And with the way European women approach storytelling like that, you are in for a treat.
2. They are attentive as girlfriends
Most of the European girls are pretty much in touch with their feminine side. You will always have a nice looking girl next to you.
But, the more important thing about them being in touch with their femininity is the approach to their boyfriend.
They are not cold and distant. They are attentive, caring, and more often than not very nurturing.
If you fall ill your European girlfriend will never leave your side. And even if you are perfectly ok she will worry about you being hungry or cold or tired and will do things to remedy that.
3. Fiery lovers
Despite the fact that you will have to enjoy a lot of sexless dates with a kiss goodnight in front of her apartment, dating and being in a sexual relationship with a European girl is a great experience.
Once you break through the seemingly cold and reserved exterior or patriarchal upbringing you will discover a truly wild animal.
European girls in bed are full of pleasant surprises. One gets to wonder where has she gotten it from, and the chances are, she heard it from a girlfriend who heard it from a girlfriend.
And, although patriarchally oriented, European girls are open to experimenting in bed just as long they feel respected and loved.
1. Different temperaments
Now, this is a problem if you are reading this and expecting it all to be applied to any girl in any European country. It is not and it cannot be.
Europe has so many countries, all with different mindsets, so what works in one country and with one type of girl will not work for the other, and vice versa.
In Estonia, they like a relaxed gentleman, but in Italy, they like loud and expressive guys, for example. Their temperaments largely differ.
If you are planning to go through Europe fairily quickly this may be overwhelming for you. So each time you want to travel to a different country, check and change your mindset and expectations.
You can also use some of my other guides describing all European girls in detail.
2. Attachment to their families
It is absolutely normal to have a healthy attachment to your family. For u, it is a weekly call, and maybe a monthly visit if you are living nearby.
In Europe, if you are living in the same town as your family (which is usually the case), you will see your family much more often.
Well, for your European girlfriend that can be extremely pleasant, you know she talks to her mother on a daily basis and about everything, for you, this may seem a bit too much.
This is especially the case if you are becoming serious with your girl and all of a sudden some of the decisions are not completely yours, or your and your girlfriend’s, but her family’s, too.
How to Make a European Woman Fall in Love with You
Now that I have shared what are European girls like in relationships, where to meet a European woman, and how to meet European women, it is about time to give you what you need the most.
What is that, you ask?
Well, tips for dating a European woman, of course! These were life-savers for me, and I wish someone had told them to me before I learned on my own.
1. Show interest in her culture
Coming from America, you might think that all of the European countries are alike. They are most certainly not.
Before visiting a certain country, try to learn as much as possible about it, about the culture and the women.
Luckily for you, I have created more specific guides about nationalities where I had my international dating experiences.
Croatian girls and Serbian Girls might look and sound pretty much the same to you, but you will be hard-pressed to find a girl who will be inclined to agree with you in both countries. The same goes for the Irish and Scottish, Austrian and Swiss, and so on.
Seriously, learn your facts and you will at least avoid ‘offending’ them by chance.
2. Be patient
This mostly goes for not pushing them to have a sexual relationship before they are ready.
Dating European girls can be tricky for an American man looking for European women simply because we are accustomed to the free love approach.
In Europe, there is still the ‘What are people going to think and say’ especially in smaller countries, so try to be patient.
It will get you there faster than the aggressive approach, which can only result in you going home alone every night.
If she is your girlfriend, and she feels safe with you, you will soon get to know What are European women like in bed.
Fake is not an option, they see through this quite easily and stop spending their time and energy on you.
One of the best European women dating tips I have gotten and I want to share with you is that you should take good care of how you balance giving her attention to giving her freedom.
If you are constantly around her she will feel suffocated, if you are never around, she will find you uninterested and will eventually dump you.
Do not refrain from expressing how you feel about her going out, and also encourage her to go out. It is seriously a daunting task, and seems at the least, ambiguous; however, once you get the hang of dosed possessiveness you are golden.
4. Respect the family
When you are dating a European woman there comes the time when you will inevitably meet her family.
If you are dating a girl from Denmark, she might conform with introducing you to her parents and siblings only, however, if you are dating a bit more to the South, prepare for meeting a bunch of cousins, aunts and uncles, and at least two sets of grandparents.
one of the European women stereotypes that turned out not to be such a stereotype after all, but a complete truth is that they have large and loud families. (Have you been subjected to pushing through the movie My big fat Greek wedding? Yeah, just like that…).
The key to keeping your European girlfriend is to be polite and respectful with her pushy relatives; otherwise, you are quickly out the door and soon will be forgotten.
5. Language Barrier
You caught an eye of a hot European girl, and what now?
Now it is time for you to release your charm and seduce her. But, can you do it your regular way- sweet-talking her into falling in love with you?
Depending on where in Europe you are, yes.
In the majority of countries in Europe, English is studied in schools, and it is a matter of good education to speak at least some basic English.
It is obvious that in the UK you will have no problem communicating with your romantic interest.
Scandinavian Girls and German girls, for example, will probably speak English very well. In the Balkans, the mastery of the English language will mostly depend on education.
And in countries like Italy, France, and Spain you might find a bit more resistance to speaking English. They will speak to you in English if they find you attractive or at least likable, otherwise, they will be as far as offended that you do not speak their native language.
My advice is before you go to Europe, learn a few words of German, Spanish and especially French (since they are most reluctant to speak in English).
That is if you are visiting those countries.
If you know your route will lead you to a different side, again, make an effort to learn a few basic expressions, just to show your interest.
Europeans already think the Americans have no clue about Europe and its countries, it is our assignment to prove them wrong. And international dating is the easiest way to do that.
Using a few words in the language of the country you have chosen as your destination will only warm hot European women up to you, so making this effort will pay out later.
If the language gives out, you can always resort to making her laugh anyway you can though. It has always been a universal way to a woman’s heart.
The Most Beautiful European Women
You have reached the section where I show you three hottest European women. This is just my personal opinion, and you may find that your choices would be different.
I’m okay with that, we have a different taste in women. I am sure, though, that you will find a few to your liking browsing through the photos. Until then, here are my top three picks.
A timeless Italian Goddess, Monica Belluci was born in 1964 and is an Italian actress and model. She has been considered a sex symbol for over 30 years now.
I believe that there isn’t a man in this world who would dare say that Belluci is not one of the most beautiful women in the world.
With luscious lips, gorgeous hair and almond eyes, this Italian beauty is a perfect representation of how European women look like.
Besides her great looks, she is famous worldwide thanks to her movies. The Italian romance- Malena, The Passion of the Christ, James Bond (2015), Dracula, and more.
I am sure she will entice us for many years to come.
2. Penelope Cruz
Born in Spain in 1974, Penelope Cruz is one of the most beautiful women in the world.
Strong and opinionated, she is a perfect example of the fiery Spanish women.
She has been known as ‘the Spanish Enchantress’, and it is easy to understand why- great bod, beautiful face, long locks, Cruz is an epitome of sex appeal. She enchanted Tom Cruise and Javier Bardem.
Penelope gained her world fame by working with Pedro Almodovar.
She is an Oscar-winning actress for her role in the movie Vicky, Christina, Barcelona. Her other famous projects are Vanilla Sky, All the Pretty Horses, and Open your Eyes.
Certainly, you will enjoy watching them. They are good, and Penelope is gorgeous no matter the role.
3. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
Born in 1987 in England, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is a model, an actress, and a businesswoman.
She is most famous for her modeling for the Victoria’s Secret and being a Victoria’s Angel.
Later she started acting and scored a role in Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) where she met her fiance, Jason Statham.
She is tall, blonde and gorgeous and has the sweetest smile in the world. If she was an American, she would be a proper ‘girl next door’.
Hopefully, she will have more acting projects, until then, gaze at her beauty on her runway photos, they are worth the search.
