I flaming well have, I know around 4 English people that have married Polish girls, the have ended up adopting the parents, they are broke whilst their wives spend and they are totally unhappy. A few age differences here, but that aint love, its a sentence.

nobody I know of is happy after marrying one.

Strange that i know 3 Guys who have Polish wives.
And they are all devoted to each other..
And Family is Family.
They didnt adopt them. They just are..

Oh And not one gold digger amongst them.. So i dont know where your guys went wrong..

They were going over to Poland before the UK opened its doors and girls were after them as a means to get into the UK. Polish girls are different to British women. British women will not allow their men to pay for everything. Polish women are the opposite.

All the British women I have ever been out with will not pay for everything, only a dumb ass would put up with that! Polish women are notorious for it. Thats why most Brits won't go near them now, apart from the fact that they expect to be treat like royalty as well lol.

I've never even tried to get a woman to pay for everything.

why most Brits won't go near them now

The news got out about the ways of Polish women, and suddenly not a single British soul wants one.

Poles are ok, Irish generally scum, English need to learn to be tolerant of other nations (except paddy ******* that is)

I Recently went to manchester airport, i was waiting for a flight to the Carribean, I spoke to a young Polish Woman who was very friendly and polite, I could sense the disdain her English colleagues had for her. Which i thought was very sad indeed. Have you noticed only silly little English people who have ****** jobs themselves usually involving low skills are the ones that are afraid of the Poles working here the most. Simple fact is if you hate poles get an education and you might just one day get a better job (that if the poles dont beat you to it!!)

Ps ********** do not moan about my syntax as it the weekend ok!

yes cause its those "silly little english people" (why,what are you,a colonial?) that are facing tough compotition in the job market,so keep your arrogent ,working class hating attitude to yourself untill you have something more constructive to say than "they're great,we're all crap......

davie,My wife is Polish and I dont agree with your assertion that it doesnt work.As fiercely independant as she is,Gosia never forgets that her family comes first.Spending money is a tallent all women have and is not restricted to nationalities.The only difficulty is that its very difficult to break the apron strings(ties with the birth family) and this can get cumbersome at times-they(polish girls) are very loyal to their families and find difficulty adjusting those loyalties.That said we,ve been with each other since '94 and we're still hanging in there just fine.I drove a truck on T.I.R work for 10 years and got home sometimes 15-18 days a year and neither one of us has ever strayed.That would break the resolve of most women-but not mine.There are a lot of gold diggers out there too,but good girls despise them as much as we do.If you or your mate had a bad experience its a shame,but you mustn't make a conclusion based on 4 cases.

No offence but the only people that I know of that have married Polish girls have not been that popular with local girls for one reason or another. Some Polish women are very attractive but as they say beauty is only skin deep. I kind of think the whole package of adopting family, and even sending money back to the family as I have been told, is not really a relationship derived from love. I think British men have more understanding with their own women and to be frank, only desperados will marry a foreigner.

you hit the nail right on the head with that hammer blow

I think British men have more understanding with their own women

i agree big up to all the British ladies out there :)

only desperados will marry a foreigner.

hhhmmmm i don't think your right here, i have had foreign girlfriends and they are fantastic just as the British girls are.

its precisely that kind of attitude that would make me much rather marry a foreigner than a Brit.

Spending money is a tallent all women have and is not restricted to nationalities

...and there are plenty of women who work hard for their money and dont need a man to support them financially.

I cannot agree with the term "desperados", but the guys I know who have married Polish women did not have much luck with girls before hand, so there is something in what you are saying.

I have met a few attractive Polish girls but everyone seems a bit too bossy for me and that puts me off them.

All women like to have a certain amount of control but I get the impression that Polish girls are control freaks.

I also don't think Poles share the same sense of humour as the Brits. You have to have something you relate to and that goes for any relationship and Brits and Poles are a distance apart in many ways.

have you ever had a relationship with a Pole? If not, then who are you to comment on this? As a Brit with a Polish partner I find plenty to relate to.

I know a few and can say that Polish people and English people are totally different with their views on life. I think this is becuase Poland has a somewhat miserable history and it shows in the people.

The leader of Poland's main opposition party, Donald Tusk, is campaigning in the UK and the Irish Republic ahead of a election in Poland in October.

This is one Pole I would rather not have over here. The last thing we need is any more politicians, be they Polish, Punjabi, or Innuit. We've got eough of the useless cretins of our own already.

- But, quite obviously, Polish women you would not classify in the 'fantastic' category?

No offence but the only people that I know of that have married Polish girls have not been that popular with local girls for one reason or another

- I wonder why they have not been popular with 'local girls'? Do you mean some of them haven't been popular with you? No offence, but is it because they preferred Polish girls over you?

Some Polish women are very attractive but as they say beauty is only skin deep

- Oh, and no offence again, but does it follow your own beauty is only skin shallow...?

- Why not be tolerant towards both Poles and Irish?

The last posts i read from Ola 123 was her saying that she strongly objected to English people buying Polish land , and many of her comments were very racist...Now she is asking about English attitude to Poles going to UK , and going there herself....I only hope that if she likes it in UK , and buys a house there that she does not meet English people that have the same attitude as she has....I have no problem with Polish people going to UK , and thankfully the Polish people i have met don,t have a problem with me buying a Polish farm , and living here.....Most English people i know will have no problem at all with hard working Polish people , and you will be made welcome by most people...Of course there will be those that don,t like anyone that is not a local , but its not a view of most UK people...Go there , you will be ok....

Did anybody watch "Despatches" last night? Seems that the number of Poles that have come into the UK to settle is creating hell for Schools and Public Services. Sounds to me like the influx of Eastern Europeans isn't such a good thing at all and you have to admit, in some places it has been over-kill.

I think its like all nations...you have good and bad..I think from personal experience (being English) that Poles are respected for their honesty and hard work.Obviously you do get some idiots that don't like any other nationality. It may be the same in Poland..I wouldn't know.

First of all - hi everyone. I'm a polish guy, who used to live in Liverpool (around 11 months).

I've a BA degree in english philology, now applying for an MA, working as a translator.

Anyway. I was living in Liverpool, had some great times there, met one of the most amazing women in my life (from Birmingham), some really cool people in Krazyhouse (pub in Liv). I had some bad times as well - encounter with chavs, chav girls (probably there's a proper word for them ;) ), some other jerks who had problems with people from other countries.

All I wanted to say is that I hate people generalizing when it comes to any sphere of life. Polish people are... English people are... Treat people as individuals. I've met A LOT of idiots from Poland in England. I've also met xenophobes knowing nothing about my country and throwing all people of my nationality into one bag.

Get to know a person before you judge him/her. Yes, I admit - a lot of morons from Poland go to the UK, I feel ashamed when I see those chav-like Poles. But that's not representative of all polish people. More tolerance. Please.

I miss England. I miss some amazing people I've met there.

Btw. I would love to have an english person on my IM (MSN, AIM, anything - you pick). So if anybody's interested - I'd be really happy to have a person I can talk with (about different stuff).

Btw. my myspace page (because I'm new here, and nobody knows me - it's not spam or anything)

h t t p:// profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=135 266522 (you have to remove the blank space between '135' and '266522' ;)

Peace.
