And what di you mean by "for different reasons"

Both 艁贸d藕 and Katowice are traditionally industrial and/or mining towns and a bit rougher and more drab than some other cities (艁贸d藕 has undergone campaigns to make it look nicer but I don't know how effective). Warsaw and Krak贸w already have a lot of foreigners and manners are bit more brusque than some other areas.

What city are you in (or close to) in Belgium? I've only been in Brussels (yech) and Antwerp (mostly pretty nice)

you actually look less Polish than you did before

Yes, the first photos presented a pure Pole.

I would advise avoiding Warsaw, and Krak贸w....

Of course not. He should go to those places if he has a Jewish surname - especially Krakow.

especially Krakow.

Too touristy and full of Krakusy... let's just say I had a (Polish) colleague who spent a few decades there and.... didn't have many positive things to say about the people.

This is my impression too. He suddenly looks much less Polish than before. This new tint of his hair makes him look much more Germanic now, sort of Nieder Sachsen/Nederland mixture. I guess he would be R1b genetically.

Komt u uit Walloni毛 of Vlaanderen? [Ik zou naar Vlaanderen wijzen.]

Oops, I missed that post, that's why I was asking about Flanders/Wallonia.

Yes, true, but at least they love Jews so it is perfect for our Belgian friend. In Krakow even football fans call themselves Jews and are proud of it.

call themselves Jews

If I'm not mistaken, Krak贸w has the highest percentage of people of Jewish origin of all Polish towns today. On visiting the Nowy Cmentarz 呕ydowski once, I saw quite a number of contemporary Jewish burials there.

Like I said... a larger city that's not Warsaw, Cracow, Lodz or Katowice.... Look for university towns (maybe ones with programs in Dutch philology).

In Poland most people wouldn't care they are not as racist as people in Belgium.

@Ironside
Ok that's great and Yes you're right. People here are extremely racist! Especially against africans etc. Btw they say the same about the polish people but I only have good experiences with polish people, so I don't listen to their opinion. it's just the fact that Belgium is very closed minded in many ways.

Please stick to the topic everyone

So your problem was not whether you look Polish, but how to find a girl-friend in Poland hahaha.

So, to find a girlfriend in Poland, you don`t need to look Polish. Your looks doesn`t matter as long as you are a decent man.

@pawian
I am a decent man! But I thought polish women didn't like foreigners, that's why.

I see. Then, do you vow that you shall not leave her until death parts you???

@pawian
Damn, what a question 馃槄
Sure, if it clicks and she is nice to me, I have no problem with sticking with one girl! It would also keep me calm, now that I'm single there's too many distractions

Good. You have my blessing.

Thx! You know a polish dating site perhaps?
pawian 179 | 16,285
16 Apr 2021 #353
Actually, I don`t know any, I would have to google them so you can also easily do it on your own. The Polish word for a date is randka.

I am an American of Polish descent, I've always wondered if I look Polish.

Here is the picture. He does look Polish in this traditional folk costume. Don`t you think?

His costume looks Polish but he doesn't.
Your post would work in Britain, France or America, but no chance in Poland.

You are so wrong. Look at Polish Highlanders - from the villages of White and Black Dunajec.

Your sense of humour does not work on me.
I just don't find it funny or even get your point.
Post it in Polish, maybe that will work, because it does not work in English.
