Well, I am 24 Chinese and I met a 58-yr-old Polish man (married with a daughter older than me). We started sending email to each other everyday. He's a sweet guy but... what does he intends to do (or rather, what is he trying to do?) He says he likes me and thinks of me until he sees me in his dreams and he likes talking on the phone with me... But I thought he is already married.. why does he still do these things? - Causing me to misunderstand as well...

Ahhh, it's the latest iteration of:

"Hi, I'm a [Korean|Chinese|Indian|Pakistani|Arab|Nigerian|Gypsy|Tartar] man/woman who is (thinking about) dating a Polish woman/man and am just wondering what you guys think?"

I find it fascinating how such a huge proportion of non-Europeans seem to be magically drawn to PF to post these questions repeatedly again and again. It's almost uncanny.

I suppose the other possibility is that the schizophrenics on this board have developed new personalities, and enjoy pushing peoples' buttons.... even some teacher conducting his own private social experiments... nahhh, who would do a thing like that???

I find it fascinating

People of different ethnicities are attracted to each other all the time. Of course you're not gonna see Mexicans looking for Russians on PF. That would be way off topic.

That's a gorgeous statement.. I'd embrace her tightly were it a woman.

You're misinterpreting my meaning.

What I find fascinating isn't that different ethnicities are attracted to each other. That's obviously quite normal.

What I find fascinating is that there are so many posts of this variety here on PF. This is a reasonably small user community, yet almost every day there several very similar posts about interracial relationships in Poland. And all these posts sound very similar. Grammar, spelling, style, punctuation, substance.

Based on the size of the user community here, the number of these postings is quite simply wildly disproportionate to the frequency of interracial relationships among the general population of Poland. It's almost like someone has a hypothesis about Poles' views on interracial dating, and is posting here under different names to test users' responses.

I mean, if you were dating somebody of a different ethnicity from country X, where 99% people were the same ethnicity and religion, would you go find, and without knowing anybody there, start a new topic saying you've snagged one of their boys or girls, and solicit them in a naive innocent way what they think? Please.

All I'm saying is that many of these posts appear to be deliberate by design. Provocations, trolls, or maybe somebody's sociology paper on testing young Poles's changing attitudes on interracial dating. But hey, if that's what keeps people entertained around here, more power to them.

I think PF webmasters are just doing an awesome job with search engine optimization that everyone looking for Polish relationships find on page 1 of Google search results. ;)

It sort of makes sense that there would be a lot of posts concerning nationality X with Polish M/W. There's been a lot of movement of younger Polish folks in recent years and Poland itself (from what I hear) is becoming more diverse. Also, for a lot of non Poles, Polish culture is really different and so questions are bound to come up.

Nationality X with nationality Y discussions come up on every ethnic/country forum with the usual answers (ranging from "individuals differ so it depends" to the xenophobic/nationalistic response). I'm sure some of the posts are mere provocations/trolling but I would guess many are real. No matter what nationality is being discussed there will be people who do not know how to use the "search" the same questions will come up repeatedly...

And for the original poster: He's probably married and too old. Don't get caught up in his mid life crisis.
