In Sweden where I am from there are plenty of Poles who work in construction, so the “rough man” dream is spot on when it comes to many people’s idea of Polish men.
It’s my understanding that Polish women expect their men to bring them gifts, especially flowers.
I’ve heard of more than one Polish woman going crazy for the flowers.
Read on to find out more about Polish men and what to expect when dating them.
Whilst the church has lost some of its grip on society at large, people are generally brought up with the catholic faith in Poland.
Not that I’m saying I’m funny, but you know…)In Poland the right to abortion isn’t a given, nor are contraceptives, so make sure if you meet a man in Poland that you make it clear that you won’t have unprotected sex with him and bring the condoms yourself.
Doctors can still deny women contraceptives there, even if it’s rare.All in all, make sure you talk to him about religion to find out where he stands, whether you are catholic or not yourself.Whilst it’s not necessarily a topic for a first date you will want to know about his beliefs before you get serious, which you would with anyone you date.And Polish women are quite fierce, so chances are they have trained your man well. They will hold doors for you, give up their seat in the bus for you and so on.Speaking to my sister just now who lives in Poland she confirmed that you see men and women everywhere carrying bouquets of flowers. When it comes to paying the bill a lot of Polish men will offer to pay it.However, it depends on how much money he is earning and it’s always polite to offer you pay your half yourself (unless he insisted you go to the most expensive restaurant in town).
