Love / Polish women are the most beautiful in the world! [1718]

im just jumping in here

Polish women are beautiful in everyway! Yes beauty is one element, ive been to poland a few times and there is no comparasion to any other country ive been to before!

BUT the real killer beauty to me is there atitude! they are so warm once you get to know them, so selfless (the ones ive met and ive met a few) and generally smart!

They handsdown beat the western materialistic shallow girls ive known in the past.

Its a sweeping statement - but based on my personal experiences

I now have a polish girlfriend! :)

my honesty has and always will, get my into a big heap of shi...

Er I dunno, different strokes for different folks. I like girls individually i get on with all i meet. Its a general statement really and from personal experiences with some girls i know (i wouldnt wish to be with them) and i was in a 2yr relationship with the definition of what i stand to despise in any person!

Cheers for the heads up thou! any nice ladies not from poland please do not be offended. Im sure you could say the same about many men :)

Kaka! :) sorry about my english. I was saying that I find Polish Girls to be far more modest and not so 'vain' compared to Irish and British Girls. They are more selfless and in general far more sympathetic (good thing).

The Irish and British Girls Ive known are loud, materialistic, selfish. Sure there are good looking women everywhere but ive found the percentage to be higher in Poland and eastern girls in general.

You could say they are more friendly but i think its a different kind of friendly. The polish people in general are very friendly in my experience once you get to know them (past the introduction stage) I hope this makes sense!

by the way - your post made perfect sense :)

Love / Polish women are the most beautiful in the world! [1718]

yea, ive dated irish, french italian and brazillian. Im not painting all women with the same brush, im not saying no nationality is loud - you've gotten far to defensive for a GENERALised, from personalised experience.

Dont make it so that people cant speak to the tales of there own life! PC has ruined conversation in most cases anyway!

There are lovely british girls (and irish) they are fewer and farther between than polish and THAT is just MY experience :) i never said YOU weren't, I dont know you, Ive said the ones ive met, generally! now PAX?!

and on a point - you said you like to have fun! thats great im sure we all do! :) i never said anything about us irish n english NOT having fun - only that ive found polish to be more open and friendlier and nothing to do with FUN or being LOUD (next you'll tell me ive objected to having a drink!?)

This has gotten to a rant as i hate it when people blow stuff up beyond the orginal message!

Poles aren't a race so the term can't be racist.

Love / Polish Girls vs Russian Girls [813]

respect for all women indeed!

and even though i love my polish girlfriend i know there are many other lovely girls in all parts of the world. I dont have a set type, my history in girls could be testemony to that but i do know that they were all smart, beautiful individuals and if i did not respect them how could i love them?

yayitsme, i would not agree with the russian girl statment but realise they have an image along with the 'me so horny, me love you longtime' image from asia. Its just not like that in the main but it does exist (otherwise it wouldnt become a stereotype)

respect the person you love

Life / What is the reason for POLISH jokes ? [486]

Ah lads - how about the irishman jokes? :) its the same thing - though today, most people tht tell the irishman jokes are irish :)

paddy irishman, paddy englishman and paddy scots man....(it usually starts - but the key is the dumbest paddy (nick for irishman) is always paddy irishman!)

Its just a bit of fun in our case and we dont take it seriously. but in some cases, sure, it is ignorant and can be hurtful (im speaking now about the posts above in reference to Polish jokes)

But i think if the polish can laugh at themselves, these jokes wont be so malicious

Life / Is the word "Polack"rascist? [185]

My Italian friend calls me jokingly at times "Polack' and I tell her she is such a 'wop'. I call my German friend a 'bucket head" as she calls me 'Polack" sometimes and we both have a good laugh. I never been referred to as "Polack" by my American friends, they seem to be more careful in name calling...
However, ethnic people themselves have no problem laughing at each other old stereotypes.

A wop? never heard that :) where did it come from?

Im sure we know irish are called, paddy's and mick's but what else? :)

Genealogy / Claiming WW2 medals for Polish father [37]


Id imagine you would have to contact the relevant ministry of defense etc and the branch of armed forces he served in to get records (true and fair) that he actually served.

So if it was the Polish army lets say, you'd need to contact them, giving them your fathers service number, name, unit, etc, etc (as he is still alive he will be able to provide you these basic bits of information.

Once done, the branch of the military concerned shall provide the information (not sure how long that will take btw) and you will then need to contact the respective ministry (of defense, of war, or whatever it is)

But first off, you need your fathers details;

Country served for,
Branch served in (army, navy, etc)
Service Number,
These are the basics they will ask you for.

Good luck

Work / Want to live and work in Poland, but it is not possible? [19]

can't for legal reasons


As Grzegorz says, all EU citizens may live and work in Poland.
He may just not want to go back
He is more than likely making more money where you are (you didnt say where)
and doesnt wish to return for this (or other reasons)

But its not about legal reasons (involving work)

Taxation CAN come into it. BUT if yer man gets his finished working form in IRE/GB and goes back to Poland he is prob afraid of paying tax on earned wages twices. This just cannot happen.

There are double taxtation treaties between all EU countries. If he must subsequently pay Polish income tax on his return, he claims back the tax he paid in the IRE/GB.

hope this helps

Genealogy / Is tallness common among Polish people? [201]

phhhf, i dunno about this claim.

Though im reminded of one day in college i was with three mates and we were standing in the students union - im 5'10 and i was DWARFED by these guys!! (all Irish but def ABOVE average height)

I dont think its so easy to attach this claim to one european country?

cloud - it would seem there is more than meets the eye.

it would seem ye need to either, say nothing, put up with it.
or confront and see what happens?

there are other options too, i just dont know the whole story...
