Do you really like to get them from men? Do they have to come with flowers, box of chocolates, and the moonlight? :) Can they be cited from someone's work or creativity is a must? Pls elaborate ladies, thanks

Someone special? ... heh.. all girls are special you know :)
I was just referring to one of the recent posts (which has unfortunatelly been lost during the last server-backup among many other good posts) ... but I guess I am still the old-fashioned romantic one..

Yea, I think I kind of know what you mean but not entirely. It's usually men who forget the imporance of the above not girls no matter what age :)

..would prefer a good c.d. to chocolates too

nice :)

no poems, please. usually it is just akward when a guy is reading a poem for a girl... in such a moment I will probably just laugh

for me it is just funny, especially when a guy send his own poem...
but I have to admit it depends on poem.. but, usually they are, how to say it politly..very weak

Are you saying that men aren't quality poets?

I'm just saying that sometimes they try to do something and they chose wrong way... the poem has to be good. if it's average it's weak. instead of poem, invitation to theather is better.

Okay I understand, but its not something English men do, so I suppose never having had a poem, weak or otherwise, I dont think I'd mock someone for trying...

English men take you out for dinner or buy jewellery!

Polish guys take you for a coffee or beer (for a first date) usually it's a beer

Dinner is customary, but Im older than you, I suppose when I was in my teens a drink or a pizza or the pictures...or all three!

I think beer is customary here... no matter how old are you.

BTW how can you tell that you are older then me?

I like poems because they come from the heart. And some make me laugh because they're suppose to make you happy. I like roses any color and I like chocolates.

It's not what you want but what that other person gives you from his heart that counts.

Hmmm. Good question. How about if you send me a poem, flowers, and a box of chocolates under the moonlight and I'll let you know if I like it. :) You can try one that you've written first and then one that someone else has written and we'll see which one works better.

Seriously, I personally have never been treated like that before in my entire life. Svengoolie is the first man who has ever sent me a poem. (Svengoolie from the forum, in case you don't know).

I think it is like everything in life – some do, and some don’t…..

Well, I guess when you get to know someone well enough, you know whether or not they would appreciate a poem or not. I sent someone a small poem tonight and she was happy because a) I sent something in the first place and b) I took the trouble to find something that was both appropriate and in Polish.

Hey, if sending a poem to someone makes them happy, who cares about stereotypes and generalisations!

ok shewolf, let's try then. I am afraid however that some us will rate this one as "weak" as I'm not too good in this :) But what a heck, it's all virtual reality, Kaka won't be able to kick my ass for lack of skills no matter what hehe.

this one would be mine:

" Tak cieplo przytulalismy sie do siebie,
ze nikt nas nigdy nie widzial razem w gniewie,
Tak dlugo patrzylismy w oczy sobie,
Kocham Cie - mowilem wowczas Tobie,
zmienilo sie wiele ...
Tesknie, mysle, zapomniec nie moge latwo!
Plyne w myslach niczym wsrod fal wzburzonych roztrzaskana tratwa!
I juz mysle czasem ze moja nadzieja na zawsze zatonie,
ale jeszcze walcze, nie poddaje sie, chwytam jeszcze wiosla w dlonie... "

this one on the other hand I copied from the following website:
milosc.info/wierszyki/wierszyki-milosne-02-01.php

"Dla Ciebie moje usta, dla Ciebie moje ręce
I oczy dzięki Tobie widzące coraz więcej.
Dla Ciebie moje myśli, dla Ciebie moje słowa,
Którymi swoje serce chcę Tobie ofiarować.
Dla Ciebie wszystkie kwiaty z mej wyobraźni pól
I serce, co bez Ciebie nie zagra żadnej z ról"

I apologize the english speakers, but my poetic creativity levels go down significantly when it comes to writing poems in English :(
