They seem to cry a lot,be more hysteric than western or mediteranean women.A lot of temperament.

Maybe they are upset that you are lumping them all together in such a way.

What are you saying to these women? Examples please.

I just have noticed that while most western,latin,mediteranean women have a thick skin,slavic women are more sensitive.I cannot describe it.They are more excited,how to tell it?

Yes, I would say that Slavs are more maybe not excited, but perhaps passionate or emotional? But I hardly think that this fact is a) restricted to women or b) some sort of ethnic thing.

I'm generalising surely but I've found that Polish women (I can't speak for Slavs as most of my experience is with Poles [for that matter, though, who am I to speak for Polish women?]) are passionate in the way that say, many French or Italian women are.

I think, however, that this is political and social, not something inherent in the blood. Those three countries have uproarious, uncertain, and sometimes violent pasts and that reflects in there people. If British or Japanese or German people (and women) are more reserved or stoic perhaps its because of the relative stable histories of their nations. Just a theory, and it certainly doesn't just apply to the women.

German history is not very stable.

I would say sensual is quite a different matter. Surely, any person, from any walk of life can be sensual, but sensual for some is a private matter for others quite public. Not to put words in southern's mouth but I believe he is speaking about emotions displayed in public. Could be wrong but that's how I understood his question.

German history is not very stable.

I said relatively. I would say, that Germany, while often at war, is most often the actor in those disputes, as opposed to being the one acted upon. That is to say, that the Germans have long been the controllers of their own destiny, like the British and the Americans. That would be fair to say, I think.

I think slavic women are in general more fragile,how to express it?More artistic,etc.

Alright, southern. I might be able to agree to that point. But your question is why? Do you think it is something in the Slavic brain, or blood, or soul? Or is there a social reason? Or is it just so for no reason at all?

I wouldn't say that Slavic women, certainly not Polish women are fragile, however. These are the women or the daughters of the women who saw their country get desimated by the Blitz, watch their men or their sisters go off to die, and were held responsible to rebuild a society when the bombing stopped. Ask a Pole if he would describe their Babcia as "fragile."

I hear what you're saying, though. There is something, say, delicate, and always feminine about some Polish women but even while delicate, it is quite powerful and strong.

Well, there are several ways southern.
1) Usually, the plates and glasses are flying through the air.
2) There is an intershmingling of English and Polish,in elevated tones and all in the same sentence....
3)My ears hurt from the gripping and tugging. (Usually associated with being shown where I left my socks in a little ball on the floor).

I am sure there are other ways too.

Hi all,

I am a Slavic woman :) I am A woman, translation: I am emotional, I cry, I yell, I curse, I am passionate, I can bite sometimes LOL , I am temperamental, sometimes unstable emotionally (confused maybe?) .... The list is long, gentlemen :)

That's not a Slavic thing, that's simply being a woman LOL
What else? I am hormonal, I PMS every month, it's a nightmare! LOL

Now, seriously: there might be some cultural differences between women of different descent, but for the most part women of all nations are quite similar.

ok, i'll go with that but overall slavic women are colder and mentally tougher. but yes, much more dainty.

Women are women....Polish women come from the same planet as all the others...there are the good , the bad , and the ugly....I have yet to discover any radical differences between Polish women and those of any other nationality...

I had a Polish girlfriend like that.
And a Lithuanian.
And English.
And Irish.
And Jewish.
And... well, I think you can work out where I'm going with this... ;)
