5. Buenos Aires, Argentina
Sexy and sensuous describes the world-renown dance of Argentina – the Tango– and could easily be used to categorize the men of Buenos Aires as well. Sporty and cultivated, complicated but charming, these conflicting characterizations make up the essence of these mysterious hombres. Indulge in a day strolling along the posh Recoleta district with its pristine French-style buildings; spend your nights in the historically significant San Telmo area in one of the many exciting alternative clubs. Enjoy everything you experience in this vibrant capital city, for your companion will keep you mesmerized from dusk till dawn.
4. Lisbon, Portugal
[Also see "24 Hours in Lisbon"]
Portuguese men tend to be worldly, well-educated and brimming with pride for their small but scenic country. In Lisbon, the often tall, charismatic and athletic gentlemen might surprise you with their firm grasp of not only their own culture but that of the other nations as well. All this said, tradition is still held in high regard for these divine manifestations of old-world values. They would surely appreciate an impromptu Fado performance at one of the many bars in the Barrio Alto, or a nostalgic stroll in the Alfama District – one of the most delightfully preserved sections of the city. Whatever you decide to do, these Latin seducers are guaranteed to sweep you off your feet.
3. Amsterdam, Netherlands

Amsterdam is filled with jaw-dropping, good looking guys. Taller than the average Europeans, these lovely lads dress impeccably and like to engage interested ladies in polite, easy-going conversation. Despite their sometimes reserved dispositions, Dutch men can set the right mood for romance by taking full advantage of the quaint, canal-filled haven that is Amsterdam. Spend an afternoon riding your bikes around town (the best form of transportation found around here) or fall in love the old-fashioned way while visiting the city’s enchanting, medieval old town.
2. New York City, United States
For many, New York City still reigns supreme as THE most exciting city on the planet. Whatever you want to do, whichever culture you wish to explore, wherever you wish to dine, this fantastic metropolis has an unending list of possibilities. Bearing this in mind, it should surprise no one that the most incredible looking men from every corner of the globe flock here to seek their fame and fortune. Just walking down the street on any given day will bring you eye-to-eye with the man of your dreams – at the very least in the physical sense. So ladies, train yourselves to gussy up even when going to the laundromat and maybe prince charming will one day make a date to meet you atop the highest deck of the Empire State Building.
1. Stockholm, Sweden
Swedish men have long been misunderstood. Case in point: they are often stereotyped as cold, emotionally distant loners and inexplicably mistaken for Swiss guys. On the plus side, they are also generally considered aesthetically pleasing due to their fine-boned Nordic attributes and exceptional height advantage. Although there always seems to be some truth to these types of classifications, in the case of these Scandinavian studs, the deeper reality is quite a pleasant surprise. Your average man in Stockholm is an impeccably-dressed clotheshorse that truly indulges in the enjoyment of the finer things in life: from food to fashion, culture to hearth. But what really makes them unique? Despite the fact that one must practice patience when engaging in the slightly bizarre ritual known as the Swedish courting process, once you have captured the heart and imagination of your elegant gent he will be devoted to you for life. What’s more irresistible than that?
