Poles are very traditional at heart and when in a serious relationship, they may subconsciously seek family approval.The main advantage is you will get to try delicious Polish food while meeting his folks. He may pop the question sooner than men do in your homeland.Poles, and Polish men in particular, do not smile at strangers in the streets.
Maybe in high school and university all guys are the same but I was 22 when I came here so… Also, I stand out, so maybe that’s why I didn’t have trouble finding dates in Poland. But let’s lay those aside for a minute so I can tell you what I really think.
For me, Polish men overall seem to be more down to earth. It was like they wanted you to come to them or they thought they were too good for you.
When we broke up 3 years later, my husband-then-student, asked me out one week later. Not only that, I know a lot of couples in America who have been or were together for years and years before getting married. However, it does show that you’re committed to one another. Not that I would ever condone this, but the number of high school/college sweethearts I’ve met is like astronomical. Are Poles really more willing to commit than Americans? Or maybe just the men in Poland just aren’t afraid to show that they love and need their women.
So I haven’t been single much since I moved to Poland. I mean like 6-7 years in college and after and just couldn’t commit. In Poland, it doesn’t seem like the majority of people have commitment problems, another sign of maturity. Is it because Poland is a more religious and traditional country? People feel the pressure to get married early from their family or society? Generally, Poles seem to get married earlier than Americans, even right after college around 24 or 25. Like I said, maybe I’m just overanalyzing and men are the same everywhere…
The high competition makes all approachable and, for many, a foreign boyfriend is still the ultimate accessory, promising travel, money & jealousy from other women (not to be underestimated).
