These hot attractive new “it” girls are Habesha (or Abyssinian) ladies whose ancestry comes from the Horn of Africa, specifically from Ethiopia and Eritrea.

Like Eritrean fashion model Eden Micael and Ethiopian actress Salem Tesfayie, the beauty of Abyssinian women runs deep.

Habesha babes are making American men take notice and if you are a smart guy on top of your game then you should invest some time getting acquainted with one of these beauties.

And, meeting a hot Habesha babe is not as hard as you might think. They tend to be soft-spoken, feminine, and friendly.

And, they are not into Western females’ trite past-time of playing hard to get. Abyssinian ladies are approachable but you gotta be respectful and on point.

Furthermore, don’t believe the hype about Ethiopian or Eritrean ladies not dating or marrying Black American men because they do and they are marrying smart, respectful, hardworking Black American men on a regular.

However; they, just like most high-caliber women, don’t want to deal with a Pookie or a Ray-Ray.

But they’ll marry and live the American Dream with a brotha who is a Computer Network Engineer or a Master Electrician as long as he handles his business and takes care of her and their children.

So Where Can You Meet Hot Habesha Babes?

You gotta position yourself for success and hang out in their ecology-systems in the cities where they reside.

And, you also have to present your “A” game in terms of grooming and the way you dress and carry yourself.

Habesha babes ain’t looking for scrubs or grunge-style dressers. If you have to hire a personal style consultant to learn how to present the best image of yourself do it because these are the women who are worth investing in yourself to attract them into your fold.

Their upside in terms of grace, femininity, and beauty are worth becoming the best man you can be to have a Habesha woman as a wife.

And, they are great mothers as well. Brothas these women represent the ‘total package’ in terms of femininity and beauty.

  1. Thank you for including Toronto in your article. For the past few years I’ve been thinking about how I can get an “in” to the Ethiopian and Eritrean community. I happened upon their independence day celebration back in 2018 and I really enjoyed it. I also like their music and their dancing. Your suggestions are most welcomed.

  2. A successful brother from a major inner city, I just married my african born habeshan queen. Agree with this article, the right absynnian woman is the total package: truly black, mad femininity, in touch with the creator, molded in instincts and intuition from the motherland, focused on me as her king.
