Previously, I’ve talked about the Boris Effect – when a big fat hairy Russian man is seen with a slim “model-looking” beautiful woman. The values that women place on men here vary a bit from in the West. Sure, women want a handsome hunk, but like we see in Hollywood – women are attracted to money, power and success. In countries where the divide between rich and poor is wide, some of the fattest ugliest men I’ve ever seen walk down the road toting a Super-Model looking woman on their arm.
While I was shooting photos near the Odessa Opera House (above) I spotted the antithesis of the Boris Effect. I saw a beautiful & thin woman on the arm of a poindexter looking fellow who not only appeared to be “average” in looks and style (by Ukrainian standards), but this guy was as skinny as Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory. In the American Mid-West, this guy would immediately be labeled as a “nerd” and probably pummeled by some football players. And yet he walks, with this beautiful woman in Ukraine. Perhaps they are brother and sister? No, later I saw them holding hands. It is his girlfriend…
As they walked by I thought, “If this guy has ‘game’ then certainly I do.” It gave me a LOT of hope that I would find my own Eastern European beauty.
