Are women born in Canada or the US actually interested in men originally from Eastern Europe? I've lived in Canada for 15 years and always dated women of my origin. I seem to have had this mental limitation in my mind that Canadian-born women are not interested in Eastern European men for some reason. In particular, such a reason may be the perception of Eastern European men as being "controlling" and "patriarchal". Well, I'm definitely not of this category, but if there is this stereotype, does it really prevent North American women from getting interested in a handsome and well-educated Eastern European man for a serious relationship ultimately leading to marriage?
