In love with polish cleaning woman, but don't speak an OUNCE of polish :(

Hello people :).

I work at Grundfos Bjerringbro in Denmark and have for several years, we used to have a local woman clean our offices but she quit some time ago, and then two very pretty women came from ISS and took over her job, the blonde woman of the two captured my attention right from the start and the only thing we can say to each other is Hello and Good morning, both of us with huge smiles on our faces. Lately i have been told by my co-workers that when she comes into our factory floor she always tracks me out in the middle of it all and smiles wistfully at me so i REALLY want to be able to communicate with her, it is so damn frustrating only to be able to say hello and then smile a sad smile at her because of the darn language barrier.

Why did i join here?, because i really want to do something about it, just perhaps to learn a little about her. And my hope is that you people would be willing to give a guy with a huge heart some help here :).

Crap...i see her face at all times when i close my eyes....i really have it bad for her hehe.

Well that is the reason i am here.

Best Regards
SilverFoot aka Michael Elstrom, Denmark.

Go for basics:

Hello - Cześć - Cheshch
How are you? - Jak sie masz - Yak shee mash
Good thanks, and you? - Dobrze dzięki, a ty? - Dobze Jenki, a ty?

That might not sweep her off her feet, but it means you can at least say hello...and that's always an important first step.

Thanks :D, that is precicely the way i want to start, just to let her know that i am trying to learn as you say the basics, don't want to profess my love to her and botch it up and say something like your ear is smelling like a dun-beetle and so on ;). hehe...

Will try those tomorrow, and a HUGE thanks for the phonetic spelling in the end, a real help :D.

Thank you :).

Thank you admin for moving it, had not seen this thread ( blind as a bat apparently ;) )

McCoy:

Well played me thinks.... Congrats :)....HRRMFF! :D

It's quite good as there are lots of phonetics and a few sweet words.

sorry but those sentences over there are crap mostly.

In the first post they are, but if you read down a bit there is a half decent phonetic (and spelling) list of those things.

There are not many phonetic guides out there without buying yourself a phrasebook or something. I could pass on a load of sites with sentences and phrases that will come in handy...but if you can't pronounce polish words and letters then they just look like jibberish.

Well I am rubbish at approaching women...never been a strong point at all! But starting off saying hello to someone in their own language (which you don't speak) makes it obvious that you are interested...you wouldn't go to the effort of learning otherwise. But yeah, roses is a good idea...i just wish i had the confidence to do something like that!

Put me behind a bar in a foreign country with people barking orders at me in another language: easy!

Put me behind a cocktail bar and want a conversation: easy!

Ask me to go and talk to an attractive girl and ask her out for a drink: no chance in hell!

well, the whole point of it is to show hes a good guy, roses are a strong
communication, someone who cant hear, recieves flowers, what is the first thing
they will do/say?

wow , these are beautiful.. and then the guy says.. so are ???

so she is Polish and doesnt speak english, but I bet she says, these are beautiful
so he can say in Polish what??? so are U.. then she will get the hint and of course
someone who is fluent in both languages can translate and take if from there..

ok so thats my senario.. :)

why not offer to teach her english or danish and she can teach you polish? after all it might be useful for her as well...

but on the other hand, not to rain on your parade, how can you be in love with a woman you have never spoken more than one word with? get to know her than you can see about love...

Sorry but you are of course right, the wording should have been that i am smitten with her, infatuated?. :), in love is something that comes along if you click :).

Thanks to all of you :D. damn i'm actually getting a bit nervous, and there is no chance in hell that i am going to give her roses infront of all of my co-workers...what a field day they would have :). But perhaps a single rose when in private....sounds good.

Still going to greet her tomorrow in polish, just to announce that i really am interested in her :).

Sleep well folks :) and thanks again.

WOOOPS!!!

forgot to ask how you say these phrases:

My name is Michael.
What is your name?
I will soon learn more polish.

Please help :). also include phonetic, i have no trouble pronouncing the words.

Thanks in advance.

Yah, fear of rejection. But there is a very simple way to overcome this crippling emotion: develop a greater fear of regret.

You knows it, and that is a marvellous statement, much easier said than done though.

i saw something on this it said always go for the best looking girl in the place as most guys (cardno) will not even speak to them for fear of rejection.

go for the best looking girl in the place

There is a lot of truth in that....when i was younger there were certain girls that nobody would chat up , as they were just so pretty and thought to be out of our league , but later when i was doing a bit good at being a motorcycle race champion i had no fear of chatting up the most stunning girl in the place...Only later did it occur to me that they didn,t actually know i was a bit famous , and looked the same as before....So the only thing that had changed , was that i was more confident , and less fearfull of being told to take a hike....So guys....get out there , and go for the good lookers , you never know , you might be just what she is looking for , and if she says get lost , well what the hell , its no matter.....

Hi Michael. I too would love a Polish girlfriend. The town where I work has a lot of Polish girls, maybe one day I will be lucky enough to meet one for myself too. I wish you well with your Polish beauty!

Hello again :).

Well...what can i say...the face of her when i started talking polish sentenses is something i will never forget, first a show of surprise came on her, then she just began to snicker, laugh silently and smile that beautiful smile with her lips and eyes, those eyes....oh dear god....thank you for making this fine speciment of a woman is all i could think :D.

I was actually so proud of myself that i even forgot to ask for her name :S. And the rest of the day she smiled hugely at me each time she saw me :).

I have to learn these :

- Are you single? (hehe..)

If she is not single (i hope not), but if she is i want to be able to say this :

- He is a very lucky man!.

And also these:

- I can say things in polish
- I don't understand what you say, yet!
- I really want to get to know you, can you teach me polish?.

I hope you will help me out here :). Any updates with her will be told inhere of course (don't want to leave you people out of the loop when you are helping me so much hehe).

Please give the phonetic spelling after translation, that helps immensely ;).

Can someone translate this into polish so i can show her?

*letter start*

Hello beautiful.

I have been so frustrated since i cannot talk to you in your language yet, but i am slowly learning. I find myself looking forward to seeing you each day and feel my heart beating a bit faster when i spot you, and you smile at me with that beautiful smile of yours. That only makes my heart beat even faster.

I would very much like to get to know you better, and would be very pleased if you would perhaps go on a date with me?, have dinner some place and sit and learn more of each other. Would you like that?.

*letter finish*

Cheers!.
Michael Elstrom, Denmark :).

how's this? on the second thought, maybe some other people would like to comment on this, since you can't read it... yet ;)

//letter star

Witaj przepiękna muzo,

Nie potrafie znaleść słów, które potrafiły by opisac jak bardzo usycham na sercu, gdyż nie potrafie jeszcze mowić po polsku. Każdy dzien jest dla mnie nową przygodą i z utęsknieniem czekam, kiedy raz po raz moge ujżec twe oblicze by zaspokoić glód mego serca. Każda chwila spedzona przy Tobie napelnia mnie energią miłości, a Twój uśmiech jest niczym dar z nieba. To powoduje, że me serce bije szybciej i szybciej.

Bardzo bym chciał abyś to Ty nauczyła mnie polskiego. Chce poznać Ciebie lepiej i spedzić z Toba czas. Być może kolacja we dwoje da nam dobry początek na to, aby poznać kilka nowych slów?

//letter end.

good luck dude!

If you want to impress her go up to her say "bo zupa była za słona" and gently shove her, its our national sign of affection.
