British Asian with Polish Stunner!!!

Hey guys and gals.....

I'm born and bread Oxford, England living and working here in Warsaw. I met my beautiful girl friend whilst working in Oxford over 3 years ago. She was there to improve her English and to earn a bit of cash to fund her university studies.

We began simply by dating...one thing lead to another...and after having a number of English/American girlfriends I want to say that I have never met a more determined, courageous and passionate girl in my life....she also had a touch of insecurity...and self conciuosnous....and to top it all off....she is very humble..kind...and simply stunning!

We would stay up until the early hours of the morning....every night...talking...we had so much to talk about...so much to compare...my culture being British Asian coming from a major city....her being a small town girl( Sochaczew) with huge ambition. We fell in love...and our relationship was to be tested when she got into the University in Warsaw. We knew a long distance relationship wouldn't work.....and I didn't think I could ever cope with moving to Poland.

After a bit of soul searching...and a lot of heart to heart...I moved to sochaczew last summer with her. I spoke no Polish....not one word!!!!...to be honest I still don't know much ( 10 months on)... I had a great time in Sochaczew...sure I was stared at a lot!!....sure people commented on the mixed race relationship....but all that changed once I became an English teacher!...( I have taught ESL in many countries...but its been and absolute pleasure teaching in Poland). Soon I was being invited to bbq's....weddings (all 3 flippin days!!)...trips to various Babcews houses!!...I was like the local attraction!

We moved to Warsaw a few months ago...and I love it (98% satisfaction)....I love the sites..people...bars...clubs...teaching....and some food ( Flaki yuk!)

I love my girlfriend even more.. being with her...moving here has been the best decision I have ever made...plus I'm so much richer!!...I get paid far more for being a teacher here than I ever did in England!!...The standard of living in Warsaw is great.....and every day is an experience.

Why I'm writing this?...well I have been reading these forums for a few months now...and used it a few times for advice. I just wanted to pass on my experience.

Poland is NOTHING like me friends and I thought...they come here to visit me once a month and always have a great time....they don't come here just for the women, beer,women and more beer!...they think its great!

I didn't go out to look for a Polish girl...nor did I have any intention of coming here and working, its just happened...people are a lot more open minded here than they are given credit for.

My future in father in law even suggested our 1st child should become the next president of Poland!!..lol..move over Barack Obama...Poland is going to get its first mixed race president if I have anything to do with it :P

There have been difficulties...but they have been quickly forgotten about!

I'm in the middle of organizing a International 5-a-side football tournament here....and excursions for Polish people to visit England and especially Oxford...Lifes great...did I mention that?

Thanks for reading...and have a tyskie on me!

hi ...cheers for the welcome..

Ok...i was a bit vague in my original post due to time...i could go on for hours!!!

ok..good things I have experienced Sochacew/Warsaw

Everything is new!!!

Never met people like I have met here.

My students....contrary to popular British belief)...my Polish students are not learning English in order to get out of Poland.... and find there way to the so called promised land of England!!..but quite the opposite...they are very intelligent and see the future of Poland as a European country that has a great deal to offer. English speaking Poles are going to be the back bone of this country (controversial ?!?..sure...but thats only my opinion)

The culture!!...I came here for a few days two christmas's ago....after a long delay I needed a shower!...My girlfriends parents showed me the way to the bathroom...smiling and grinning like cheshire cats!!...I was too tired to work out why!...anyway...I got naked (steady girls!!)...and turned around only to find a very LIVE fish swimming around in my bath!

Helpful...the most helpful people ever!...(ok..not everyone...but see the not so good points below!)

Vodka...need i say anymore?!

Champions bar...i need my football fix!!...great steaks too!

Great Grills!!....great views...great lakes...I forget is it 100 lakes or 1000!!!..I lost count!

TESCO for having Heinz baked beans...anyone wanting a proper British fry then need to be at my place on Saturdays!.....perfect start to a day of football..beer...and great singing!...(was anyone at champions for the Man U vs Chelsea game?)....

There are many more....but most important is the positive...and negative views of my relationship with my girlfriend :

Positive....good luck to ya...hope you do well...you two look great together etc...

Negative: Why a Polish Girl?...why take one of our girls?...especially one of the prettiest!?!?....all the negative people are now friends now they have got to know me!....Polish people are great listeners..and almost always willing to give new things a go!...they are not closed...they just seem closed!...knock on the door...tey will open up...eventually!

Bad things?

Postal service...late trains...shop workers!...oh my god its cold here!..noimmigration!!!
( just playing dude , Hi btw!)...every country has negatives...

I have been to both Barbados and Bahamas...great places..but they can get boring,.....Poland boring...NEVER!!!..too much controversy for his place to be boring!

I'm here to stay!...btw I have been attacked...and even robbed....blah blah..blh..but in my orignal post I stated my overall experience satisfaction is 98%!!...and I stand by it!

Cheers

Awesome a rather stunned immigrant of Poland loving it here, your post made me laugh as I was like that when i first arrived. I hope it works out for you dudeski i really do.

Youre in the classic fanatic stage of the first steps of immigration. Amazement, disbalief, freedom of being in a foreign country. Everything is a buzz, yeh?

Wait till the fcukers give you a serious beating, when youre subject to con artists left right and center, when those looks of contempt when your buying bread just arent so amuzing and different anymore just damn right rude. When the harsh reality of a nation thats been plagued by misery sets in and all the happiness in the world just aint gonna change them, only make them look at you more with ever increasing hate.

I fucking hate it here.

That's interesting... Are the Polish police forces not that great? Not able to handle con artist and getting criminals to where they belong?

So, it's that bad?

Its not that bad you just have to be very cautious and suspect everybody. the Poles have been subject to extreme poverty, its all in the history. Im not knocking it if the shoe fits and all that. Man has to feed children man cheats his way to profit. A man that has nothing has nothing to lose.

How come you moved there in the first place?

All kinds of reasons really, although i lived in many foreign countries i always wanted to live in a foreign country mid-long term. My wifes Polish so it made snese to give Poland a bash.

Im renovating a historic palace and im tied in for a few years among other things.

That's interesting too... I don't think I'd be able to live in Poland... I'm not that gullible, but I'd probably get tricked more easily than most people. I want to move to Switzerland when I grow older after college. :] It's lovely there, but I was thinking about Poland not sure if I'd be able to make it out there, especially since I have it really good here in America. Does your wife care if you two move away from Poland to somewhere of less poverty? Anyways, hope you keep cool while you're still there. Wish you the best of luck.

If youre thinking of a move to Switzerland seiously consider St Moritz, its a captivating place. I was there a couple of months ago wow what a city. You need the dollar though.

No

Wish you the best of luck.

Cheers dudeski.

Nice success story, you have made sth positive happen so well done.

You have to take the plunge and check out new things. Nothing ventured, nothing gained after all.

I thought about it...well i have done since i read your reply....ummm yeap..sure why not...I'd stay here if I wasn't with my girlfriend!...but I think it may force me to actually start learning Polish for real!...but yeah i'd give it a go!

Life here ...for me anyway just seems way more simple...and i'm a simple kind of guy!...love my job...love my football...love my beer...love my girlfriend...love my bank account! ( btw that list was in no particular order!!....i had to write that in case my girlfriend reads this!)

I'm way tooooo mean looking (not in nature tho!) to be conned...or to be given a good beating!!!... No one (unless they know me) even sits next to me on trains, planes...or automobiles!!!...hey I'm guessing the terrorist look ( brown skin and a lil beard!!) aint so popular!

I have been stopped by the police a few times!!....my classic reply is something like ''ja nie polski!!!''...i then pout a bit...act all innocent and confused.....and get told to be on my way!!!

I was caught speeding once in Sochaczew....did the same thing...the police officer looked all flusterd...and after 5 minutes of him getting nowhere with me...he just put his lil black note book away and stormed off!!....I am sooooooooooooo in love with this place!!

So nice to hear a good expat story!!!!!!! Congrats!! I wish you all the hapiness in the world! And for a british woman looking to move to Poland with her boyfriend in the future, you have given me alot of hope for my future. And the best thing is that you're so open to new things too! Poland in my eyes is a far cry from England but you still see all the good things about it! x :)

What Asian mix are you?

I'm in the same boat actually. My mother is from India while my father is a mixture of German, Dutch, and English. I look rather Italian I think, but I've been called all sorts of things.

Your posts are overflowing with excitement and happiness and I can only imagine why. Polish girls are great, eh? Especially if you're willing to make that move! I'm thinking teaching English would be a good idea too!

best of luck godfather...don't be forced into a negative mindset by other peoples negative experiences...if ur are to be conned beaten or ripped off better if its for a noble cause(to be with a woman whom u love)...btw i guess without your wife life would be difficult in poland esp with the language difficulties et al...i hope along with teaching english to poles ur learning polish from them too...good luck

How many times have you been to Barbados and the Bahamas to make them boring? I think they're quite beautiful.
I love to travel, myself, and am considering an adventure to Europe... Any suggestions for places to visit?

I have been to Barbados 3 times...Bahamas twice!

when i meant they can get boring i meant that after spending 3 months there can become a lil boring...

no doubt they are fantastic places...but to live....no way!
