unless you want to be the doormat - RUN! You will never win with Barbara.

Hi eurola...thanks for your honest opinion ...but i wouldn't suggest any man to walk away from Barbara...why? because a) she gets herself more isolated (except with me i have never seen her even with a prist ) b) it is good to be positivly strong (then i better run) but no good to let her win if she is negativly strong and up to my understanding in such a cases (equlisation!) is the answer... and remember that i have no obligation to stick with her at all !!except my own judgment plus her discussable behavoir...meaning there are other women that we had disagreement but we still see each other and nothing anoying between us... except with Barbara and her Ukranian friend which both act as an absolut Miss piggy...(luckily Olaga moved out) otherwise i could have been squeesed between the two!...(they didn't like each other anyway!)

what do you mean by operative? also do you know if one ringing (ringing once then putting the phone down) means something to polish people?! my friend says that in portugal they do it to say "ok", whereas i would only do it to get somebody to call me back, yet my polish friends do it a lot and seemingly for no reason!!

well in italy if someone gives you a missed call it means they are thinking about you they call it a squealo-sorry dont know the proper spelling!

I have gotten this also from my Polish boyfriend when we are not in good terms. I didn't know what to make of it. Was it just a mistake? or did it mean something? I thought maybe he tried calling someone else but hit my # by mistake? Am I right to assume this?

When I was in Poland last time - I noticed this and they called it "ba,ki". Not sure if they meant bees or the other one

What is "baki"? What do you mean when you where in Poland "you noticed" this? They do this in Poland all the time?

I was wondering about this myself. my ex (polish) boyfriend still does this to me even though we are separated since february.
He has a girlfriend and thats the reason i left him when i found out. i'v asked him to delete my number but once or twice a week he rings and then hangs up.

angel eyes,

maybe your ex-boyfriend is a comedian, a funny guy, a clown who makes you laugh :)

Wow this is so interesting. They even do this in Italy and they even have a name. What is the translation for "squealo" anyway?

Angel eyes, this seems to be more common than we thought. Please Polish guys and girls explain this. Thanks.

Definetly not Witek. Its driving me mad because i loved him but i want to forget him and try live my life without him. But i was wondering does he do this for any specific reason?

If you are in good terms it must be nice. But Angel Eyes and myself it's when we are not in good terms. I just don't know what to make of it. Here in the US, I never experienced this.

Maybe he know that, that you love / loved him and that is why he is doing it? If they have a name for it "baki" then I would assume that this is something that they do?????

well, perhaps changing number is a last resort? or asking him to stop? ORR get him into trouble, tell his current partner what he's doing, that'll get him stopped fast methinks

Yes he knows this and still says he loves me too but iv told him he cant have us both so i backed off

or asking him to stop

I have asked him to delete my number but obviously he wont. i think his girlfriend has been told something but what exactly i dont know. she stares at me a lot whenever she see's me but i dont think i could talk to her.

I feel like she see's me as the instigater in all this but im the one doing her a favour by staying away. i could have him if i wanted but he cant have the best of both worlds.

Its a bussiness number i have so that would be my last resort

ah well, i dunno :( i suppose by not responding to them and ignoring it. Dont show him that it gets to you
and if he is a typical man, he'll get bored of it
if he is a nutter, then the police are a good option to scare him off

yea iv been ignoring him so hopefully things will die down and he'l get bored. I dont think he's a nutter though he's just greedy and not the mature genuine person i thought. So thats enough whineing from me for the day... ON WITH THE SHOW....!:)

Im polish and i have a polish b/f and im not alowed to go nowhere without him, he has to know where i am if i go somewhere and if we go out its almost always together. The more you respect them the more they respect you.All of my polish friends do the exact same thing. Many of the men are controlling but they like that they pay for all the bills and take care of you. No offense to american guys, but they kinda suck their jerks most of the time. My guy likes to control how i dress. and we only stick with one group of friends and very close with family and of course love to DRINK

Lot of control obvious in Poland.But when polish girls get out of Poland,control gets away and chances for foreigners beginn.

Didn't mean to offend and is not only my opinion... Just look around the website and it seems pretty much an ongoing subject. and by the way Fisz I'm too hot and clever to be cheated on if you know what I mean...

oliwiacz my romanian ex use to treat me like your boyfriend. Nice! Except i use to pay for everything....lol. Interesting to know how these things work!! Maybe someone can answer?? So do I have this straight.....

In Poland Men control and pay for all the bills and take care of you? Its kind of almost Italian men type too but the rest can be said of some men in western european countries too right?

wow, what a topic

personally, although i am quite content with my american boyfriend, i do know some polish men, and their tactics for flirting are very intriguing. i have one friend, who does not speak much english, but he picks up quickly, so if he hears something and can figure out the meaning, he will say it later to get my, or anyone's really, attention and give a very mischevious smile

and the thing about opening doors and buying everything, thats just good manners, all men should act that way.
