snaffle 6 Oct 2006 / #1hi! i've just discovered this forum. i just started seeing this polish guy who speaks very little english, and we are going to have our first alone date on sunday. help! i need some ideas for a good date spot or activity.the situation is this. i'm a 31 year old american woman living here in the US. I was set up by my female coworker who is polish, but it wasn't a completely blind date. I met this guy briefly (when he came into the store i work in) before my friend mentioned that she wanted to set us up. normally i don't agree to set ups, but this guy is so cute, and my friend spoke so highly of him.we had our first group meet thing over many drinks on saturday night. i was surprised by how little english he speaks. i only speak about three words of polish, so verbal communication has been very difficult. he is also younger than me (born in 1980, so either 25 or 26) and seems very shy. i am extremely attracted to him, and we seemed to hit if off (at least physically) at the end of our group set up thing. he seems like a sweetheart and txt msgs me several times a day, and came to my job on wed to bring me a doughnut. =) he can understand very basic conversation like, 'how are you?' but when i ask anything more than basic travel type questions, he doesn't understand. this doesn't really bother me, but because we are both so shy, it is difficult and uncomfortable at times. i did purchase a polish/ english dictionary, and i intend to bring it on sunday.i would like our first date to be in a place where it is quiet enough for us to be able to attempt to communicate without either one of us being too embarassed about our language skills. but sunday evening is not the best time for a date like that. it's going to be dark, and probably too chilly for anything outside. and we both have complicated living situations right now, so our homes are not an option.i'm usually full of good date ideas, but this is a situation i'm unfamilar with. i want a place where we can talk, but have something to distract us. oh, and he just stared taking ESL classes, if things go well, it should get easier. =) any ideas or suggestions will be most appreciated!
