Just trying to help. :)

Maybe he's dazzled by your smile, those old time lead fillings can be quite reflective.

maybe he's got a twitch lol. i suppose its a good sign, winking is pretty much universal, it doesnt mean anything rude or nasty in Poland. my English ex bf used to wink at me a lot, but i suppose winking is a bit old fashioned now...

Polish guys do wink a lot..most of the time its the older Polish men though. Seems like old tradition.

But anywho, thats definitely a sign that he likes you!

Hi, just stumbled into this site on the web, hope you dont mind me crashing into this thread?

I'm Ecoprincess a name given to me by a group I do voluntary work for in Marine Conservation are.

I live in the North West of Ireland where I run my own smallholding and I work in a local company. I am originally English, well travelled and am now officially Irish having lived here for 27 years. So many interests I couldn't list them all here, I love life, like to live my life to the full.

Thanks for the above information in the thread. There is a a group of Polish men working as drivers where I work and one winks at me, I have never known how to interpret this. I am naive and had no idea what it meant so growing more confused I googled it and landed with you lot. :) When I came to Ireland things were a lot different to how they are now, no one ever offered me any assistance, so I go out of my way the help the Polish Community at work. They all seem to appreciate this and wave at me as they come and go.

So this chap winks at me a lot always smiles and sometimes when we are in a group of other Polish men, he repeatedly winks at me. He also waves at me coming and going from work, if we meet in the warehouse we always catch eyes, and make a point of speaking, he will go out of his way to meet me. This may all sound very teenagerish, but after 20 years in a good relationship I am now widowed for the last 7 years, and well this whole realtionship thing has moved on so much. I can not help but think I may be reading these signs wrongly, and that he is just been friendly and not interested in my romatically.

Ok it would be easy to tear me apart for my niavety, but some constructive help would be useful:
1. is it more than friends hes after.
2. how do I let him know discreetly that I am also interested, what would a Polish woman do next?

thanks to all the postive assitance responces. :)

1.you'd find out only later on
2. put your both hands on your hips - wait for 4 seconds - then reach your arm toward him with open palm of your hand. Yousing your pointing finger call him over to you and talk.

don't mention any winks as not to put him into defensive mode rahter tell him you've noticed he's been starring at you.

That reminds me of when I was telling my Polish friend what the word 'bast*rd' translated as. Hahaha laziest way to get someone to come over ;)

I do wave back at him and smile, I think he might be a bit shy, and my boss hates me talking to any of the lads (dunno).

Gonna make sure I get to talk to him this week, as the boss is away on holiday, and I will flutter the eyes at him again. That is if I dont get a giggling fit thinking about the hands on the hips bit.

I do know that culture is different and relationships are the same the world over, so thanks for the patience and tips.

i've never heard about a Polish tradition of winking....
and yes, some guys do that and some do not... some Americans do that too, so if it really is a tradition, not only Polish then...

;)

I say bite the bullet and ask him to accompany you for a coffee! Hehe...it is always easy to tell people what they should do even when you know you, yourself, wouldn't...

British says - Would you like to accompany me for a coffee?
American says - Wanna grab a coffee?
