For a long time, Russian dating has been incredibly popular, with some men going so far as to spend vast amounts of money to import their own Russian brides. While Russian women certainly are beautiful, feminine, and nurturing, the Russian dating scene is overrun by scam artists who are really good at taking lonely men for their last dollar. And the Russian women who aren’t scam artists can be cold and materialistic (or straight-up gold diggers). It didn’t take long before men started looking elsewhere in Eastern Europe for beautiful women. As they did, the trend has shifted to Polish dating.
Important Facts about Polish Dating
Forget that nonsense about “only love matters.” Yes, love can theoretically conquer all – but culture matters when dating. Before you enter the world of Polish dating, you better be aware of some of the basics of Polish culture. Otherwise, you might be in for a big surprise or make a complete moron of yourself in front of your new Polish girlfriend.
1. Polish Girls Are Known for Being Sexy and Classy
Urban Dictionary defines polish girl as a “Smart, pretty, faithful, horny girl who has big boobs and a nice ass… but is not a whore. She's a Lady in the streets and a Freak in the bed.” Anyone who has dated a polish girl would probably agree with this definition!
Polish women are considered amongst the most beautiful women in the world. They’ve been described as “Angels on Earth” and “Aphrodite of the Vistula”. On the website BeautifulPeople.com, 39% of Polish women got a favorable rating – making Poland #7 in the world (Scandinavians rank as #1). If you are the type of guy who loves big breasts, you will be in heaven in Poland. Polish girls tend to have very curvy bodies but without being overweight.
2. Poland is a Conservative Country – But the Girls Are Struggling to Break Free
As a country, Poland is very conservative. The Catholic Church dominates and politics lean to the very far right. One recent poll found that 94% of Poles believe in god and nearly half go to church every week. Unlike the rest of Europe, you won’t find open displays of nudity in Poland, and the former President even tried to ban miniskirts and heavy makeup in 2007!
Now, you’ve got to understand that these sentiments are mostly held by the older generations. The problem is that Poland is an aging country. Back in 1950, the median age in Poland was 25.8. Now, the median age is 38.2. Because of economic and political reasons, Polish people simply aren’t having many children and the population has gotten old. This makes it pretty difficult for the younger generations who grew up with Western culture and the internet. No wonder so many Polish women are eager to get out of Poland! They just want to have fun like their neighbors in Germany and Czech Republic. Once they get out of the country, Polish girls really do start having fun. One study even found that Polish women who move to the UK have 4 times more sex than they did back at home!
3. Polish Women Are Eager to Get Out of Poland
In addition to wanting to escape the oppressive conservative culture, Polish women are eager to leave Poland because of economic reasons. According to Business Week, Poland is home to 5 of Europe’s 20-poorest regions. Employment is at 13.5% and many earn less than $1.66 per hour. Because of this, Poland has lost over 1 million people since it joined the EU in 2004. That is a lot for a country of just 38 million.
4. You Are Expected to Be a Gentleman
Polish dating is old school, meaning you are expected to be a gentleman and chivalrous. There is no question as to who is going to pay the bill (you), and you should go the extra mile to open the door for her, pull out her chair, and bring flowers. And, if she has a heavy bag (luggage, groceries, etc.) you better carry it for her! In fact, if someone saw you on the streets of Poland letting a woman carry a heavy bag while you walk nonchalantly next to her, they would think you were a total douche and start talking bad about you.
Polish Girls vs. Other Eastern European Girls
If you have tried dating a Russian or Ukrainian girl only to be turned off by her coldness and demanding nature, then a Polish girl will come as a nice change. Polish girls are just as beautiful as the Russian girls, but they have more Westernized manners. They also aren’t as serious as Russian women. When you ask them “How are you,” they won’t respond with a long, thought-out answer about the status of their life at the moment. Polish girls tend to think beyond material needs, so won’t be offended if you suggest going for a bike ride as a date idea instead of some fancy-shmancy dinner that costs your entire paycheck.
One thing that Polish women do share with the rest of Eastern Europe is their love of family. They are very committed to family, their mothers in particular. Don’t be surprised if your Polish girlfriend shares every detail of your date with her mother. And if her mother gets sick, she is going to be on the next flight back to Krakow before you can say “pożegnanie.” But, on the flip side, this is why Polish women make such good wives and mothers.
Polish girls love to drink vodka and beer, enjoy dancing and partying, and have a keen fashion sense. But never forget that they are ultimately from a conservative Catholic society. Your Polish girlfriend will not be happy if you cheat on her (don’t even think about asking her for an open relationship). She wants to be in a committed relationship and doesn’t want to play games. In fact, she doesn’t even know how to play games! This trait makes Polish girls easy to pick up, but be cautious about giving out your phone number because she will call you. Again. And Again. Until you pick up and promise to be her boyfriend.
How to Find a Polish Girlfriend?
Before you start looking for a Polish girl, you better make sure that you actually want a girlfriend. Polish girls might be easier to pickup than more-experienced Western girls, but these are the types of girls who want commitment.
What you don’t want to do is go to a free Polish dating website and start sending out messages. First off, nothing good in life is free. So any free Polish dating site is going to be run or overrun by scammers. I know you think you are too smart to fall for a scam – but these scammers are very skilled and run well-organized operations. They often pay women to sit in front of webcams and chat with you. The women will eventually show you their “tickets” and “visas”. Then, at the last minute, they will say that they need money for some “Visa Code XYZ”. These scammers actually know the visa codes, so their claims sound legit and you naively send money to the Polish girl so she can come visit you. The money disappears — along with your Polish girlfriend.
If you live in the UK, chances are that you can easily find a Polish girlfriend just by hanging around the immigration office. There are about 600,000 Polish immigrants in the UK. Or maybe you can start shopping at the local Polish deli and ask some cute blonde Polish girl for advice on which podwawelska to buy.
For people who don’t live in the UK, your best chance of getting a Polish girlfriend is to book a trip to Poland. The country is actually worth the visit, and not just because of all the beautiful Polish girls you can oogle over. While eating delicious food, enjoying good jazz music in underground cafes, and checking out cool castles, you can easily meet lonely Polish women who are eager for a foreign boyfriend to whisk them away from their impoverished country. Finding a Polish girlfriend is so easy, in fact, that travel guides even talk about it. Like over at Road Junky where they report that talking to a Polish girl for just a few minutes is enough to get a date (though it will take several dates and obligatory presents to get her in bed). So, if you are the type of guy who needs help with dating, then Polish women are a good start.
Can’t swing a trip to Poland? Then check out the big dating sites like OK Cupid and eHarmony. Just use the search feature to look for people who speak the Polish language. With this approach, you are spared the hassle (and cost) of sponsoring your new Polish girlfriend’s immigration visa, and hopefully her family will be so far away that you don’t have to deal with obligatory visits to the parents every weekend.
