michals girl 4 Apr 2007 / #1my boyfriend is Polish, he's been in America for over half his life (13 years) so he's pretty much assimilated to American culture, but his parents! I can't understand them! Well, not necessarily the language (I'm learning) but the culture! I have no IDEA how to act around them! The language barrier is one thing, I would love if he would tell his parents how uncomfortable it makes me when they don't really speak English around me at all. I just don't know what's appropriate. Oh, yeah. We were having sex the other day, and it got a liiiitle loud, and his mom heard and apparently she told his dad, because the next day his dad mentioned that maybe they should soundproof the walls! He says that's something they would normally joke about.Anybody care to shed some light on my situation? It would help a ton!
