Love / Woman 23, man 47 years old. What do you think about ? [162]

About 10-15 years ago, there was one with 7-8 years difference, younger than me. I pressed on my brakes as I felt she was too young for me. A few years ago, I met another one who was 15 years younger than me. My brakes were about to burn before safely stopping. In one case, I lost job and in other case, business. Then, they safely stopped and stayed away from accident place.

Love / In Polish relationships who is the boss? [46]

so many polish guys looking not very happy when they are with their lady

did you see them in beds or outside? i too would probably be looking unhappy outside.

who is the boss? depends on the person and the cases. when it is technology, sure, i'll always be boss. other than such things, i can imagine my lady will be arrogant and she will always prefer to show herself as boss to people. heck, it is ok. but, i'll keep my foot on the brake while she is driving in the car.

Love / My Polish girlfriend's mother called her a prostitute because we live together [113]

No, I said it was younger than cohabiting without marriage.

Okay, I got it. You are using the term marriage as paperwork, signing them.
But, you say cohabiting period is for childcare, food, wealth, etc sharing.
So, you mean signing paperworks is risky without knowing the potential partner for longer future togethership.. So, you see marriage as not a fun thing to do. Okay, but, big majority of togetherships today without marriage are for fun only.

While out-of-marriage relations are considered/done as fun and when marriage is taken as monetary risky instution (that's why people hesitate to sign papers), then, suchs can not take risk of dedicating their lifes too which is more important and harder than monetary dedicating and they should not do marriage either.

Love / My Polish girlfriend's mother called her a prostitute because we live together [113]

are you a saint yourself? :)

I am well aware about unfairness to females. While females are strictly ruled and called prostitutes, males aren't called so, but, called casanova or somethings like that.. But, who calls such speedy males like this? females again, i guess. no?

i think you'll find that other than over the anvil, marriage came about in the 1700's

that kind of marriage started in 1700s was state offical kind. before, its version was religious.. before, it was without any religious or state. humans have always done marriage, whether officially or religiously or just by vowing to each others in the community. Today, some people live together as life term darlings without any official nor religiously and this kind of togethership is very old version of marriage.

Love / My Polish girlfriend's mother called her a prostitute because we live together [113]

the fact that anyone who'd call her own daughter a prostitute just because she has a boyfriend is probably a nasty piece of work anyway.

You aren't understanding her mother. She is forcing her/him about marriage.
She is just having fun? And then, she will marry with someone else? I'd not prefer to be her husband.

Given gender inequality and the glass ceiling, women are more likely to be poorer. Still doesn't makethem prostitutes.

Somebody is a prostitute if they earn money by having sexual relations for cash.

Some females have sexual relations by cash money directly and some others have that indirectly. Calling only those getting cash money as prostitute is unfair to them. Mistresses are usually paid indirectly. So-called temporary darlings too with money involved in relation too are prostitutes.

Love / My Polish girlfriend's mother called her a prostitute because we live together [113]

what on earth is a "life term darling"?! sounds like a jail sentence of some sort. ;->

dedicating their lifes to each others.. (may work or seperation may happen - another issue.) - philosophy behind the marriage is about this dedication, just with vowing at the beginning in front of people or institutions.

If there is no such a dedication, such a relationship is called based on monetary issues and it is prostitution.

One partner is often richer than another. It doesn't make one of them a prostitute.

Prostitutite is a term almost always used for females, not males.
For males, the term is libertine or whatever.

In most of cases, maybe always, in relations, females are poorer than their male partners. When they are not married or when they are not life term darlings, such females are called prostitutes if they are not married.

Life / Why are Polish people so obsessed with race? [160]

Even here, every thread on this forum even if talking about food, politics, romance will some end with racists rants. Then they say " oh there is racism everywhere"....

Lets clarify this part first.. From what I see, 98% of people here on this forum are not Poles. So, if there is racism on this forum, it is by non-Poles, mostly Europeans. So, if Poles say racism is everywhere, they are not wrong, aren't they.

Law / Business ideas when I'll get back to Poland [8]

I was in Jordan in 2008. Business was too slow then there. Is it worse now?

HR consulting field is not attractive anymore as companies are kicking employees out and most of remaining companies are doing thier HR works themselves.

In Jordan, I had seen most of houses were made of marbles. Turkey being a marble country, I can help you about this trade if you are interested.

Life / Who is poor in Poland? [720]

A lot of people on here have the 'imperialist' attitude,in their attitude,the Poles to them are second class citizens, and they should be happy that they are not starving like children in Africa.

Are there so many princesses, princes, lords, duchess, etc in Buckingham? who they say the same for ordinary Brits that they should be happy if they are unable to eat the cake as they have the bread already. These royals make fun of ordinary Brits and you become milky and come here to make fun of Poles?

Life / Is Lady Gaga popular in Poland? [47]

What is this Lady Gaga?

Okay.. (shouldn't have asked people here anything - while there is Wiki thing.)

Ok, it is written there why her CD was used for data recording by that soldier arrested now. She supported the campaign about DADT, "don't ask - don't tell", about LGBT in USA army. It is written she says she is bi in her interviews. But, looking at her story, she is probably not a bi, but, just using LGBT community to make fame and business. If this is known by LGBT community, then, it is a mutual business. I don't think she is a feminist at all. Watched the clip given by Wroclaw above and first parts of the clip reminded me of arts of an American feminist painter hannahwilke.com whose parents were immigrants from Poland. Maybe, Lady Gaga was inspired by her works, who knows.

Didn't understand much. So, she is something like Cleopatra of our 21th century? Or, another tecno-feminist?

Life / Mental health problem or one of the grieving stages? Death and denial in Poland. [93]

Okay, I read all posts from the beginning.
I am not a doctor. But, this is my opinion.
Let her keep denying a fact. She can keep thinking her father is somewhere else. There are many parentless children and they see everybody as their fathers or mothers. She can live like that. Your repeating her father's death over and over may be perceived by her you are dictating something to her. Seeing her academic background and religious views as well, she may not be used to dictations and she may be reactive even against some truths. If you can take risk, you can say you believe her that her father didn't die. After a while, either she will try to convince you he is dead or you both will live as if his father is alive and somewhere else, like parentless children who never know where their parents are, alive or not.

(I am not knowledgable about music things at all.)

What is this Lady Gaga? I heard her name first time a few months ago in his story of arrested American soldier who recorded data into Lady Gaga cd before data transferring to Wikileaks.

Life / Who is poor in Poland? [720]

Nonsense. First of all "western countries" is a very broad term, for example cost of living in Oslo and some small town in Ohio are otally different but let's compare Poland with main old EU countries like France, Germany or UK. $710 in Poland would be no more than $1000 over there.

I am already aware of that there are homeless people even in suburbs of Oslo.
Someones used the term Western countries as example to richness, I guess.

Generalizations are done by the states at top level, not by us ordinary folks. According to their generalizations, for ex, one of most important criteria that shows richness of a country is GDP figures, that's average annual income per person.. For example, most of Western countries have GDP over $30,000. But, the distribution of the wealth confirms this? Definitely not.. Even worse wealth distribution in Western countries with such high GDPs. You said it yourself, in countries like Germany, France where GDP is over $30,000, outside the city's some centers are not different than Poland, as you said in your last sentence. This means wealth distribution in high GDP countries is worse.

Life / Who is poor in Poland? [720]

What about cars,property,petrol,electronic goods,clothes??

We are talking about the basic needs.. most of these are not basic needs.

There are three levels, they classify so, of economic stiuation of people; richness, medium and poorness.
If poorness level in Poland is $500, this level can be $2500 in a Western country due to the living cost differences in these places.

Life / Who is poor in Poland? [720]

Now It's ~3500 a month gross, which is ~2500 net = $890. However the median wage is ~2000 net = ~$710

If this amount is enough for the daily life needs, basic needs, then, this can't be called a low wage.. $710 in Poland maybe equal to $3000 in Western countries as the costs there are much higher.

I was living in a village in my childhood till teenage.. I was having everythings from vegetables, fruits, etc for free - you won't believe this, I was eating even truffles for free as people were not knowing there its world market price of truffle then which must be now about $500-1000 per kg. Did I have money then? Very little, say, $1000 a year. But, I know now that I was having a life better than a person in Western country with a wage of $10,000 a month.

Genealogy / Polish DNA? Poles have the most genes in a group includes Balts, Macedonians and Greeks. [263]

They always wait help of West Europe and they just sleep, eat, dance and speak speak speak. lol

But, they are smarts as well.. There is a rumor that says Greeks are hiding much gold and they are requesting help from Germany, etc showing themselves as poor. This must be reason why Greeks work less and entertain much.

People from Lesbos are still Lesbians. Their title became synonomous with girl on girl eroticism because the ancient lyric poetess Sappho, who composed verses on this theme, was from Lesbos.

Really? Are you Greek? Those people from Lesbos island often travel to Ayvalik town of Turkey daily for shopping, etc and return back when the day is over. Most of people who do this daily trip I saw there in Ayvalik were women, but, I haven't looked at them carefully as I was alyways there to meet a Greek businessman. Rock, Lesbos island is Midilli adasi. Ayvalik streets and shops on days are full of those Midilli people there.

The Greek needs to duck and dive in the sunlight, nearby a Taverna if yoiu know what I mean!

I know what you mean. I have had several Greek business friends. Some of them were travelling daily to Ayvalik town here from Greek Lesbos island. Had eaten fish and drink much with them there. Their way of doing business was to talk business in such athmosphere while my other visitors from other part of Europe preferred to visit factories and talk business there. One of Greek businessman asked me to travel to factories and we drove to many towns for a week. I had paid his hotel costs, meals and drinks. At the end, he returned back home saying he'd be ordering some containers of goods, but, he ordered nothing. [If I see him one day, I'll have him to have me travel, eat and drink in the same way and I won't pay him anything. (btw, for those who don't know, Lesbos is the name of an island, near Turkey Aegan coast. It is said to be there were lesbians living there in that island, but, I don't know its present stiuation.)]

Life / Who is poor in Poland? [720]

1/ But how it can be if the avarage salsry in Poland is 1225 dolars?????
2/ Who is considered poor in Poland????

1225 usd is about 15,000 usd per year.. Is this average annual income per person in Poland? In Turkey, it is said to be about 11-12,000 usd which is actually good money considering daily life consumed goods are cheap here.

But, this data is a cheating data. Not a lie, but, not a truth either.
This annual income per person is calculated by dividing total income of the country by the population number. IF the distribution were equally, we could talk about average annual income per person. But, the reality is that; 5-10% of population take 50% of total budget/income and the remaining money 50% of total is distributed through a hierarchic cascade to people who are 90%. So, the real average annual income per person in Poland is not 15,000 usd, but, somethings like 5000 usd which means about 400-500 usd per month. If your salary is lower than this, you can be considered as poor.

History / What was it like in 1989+ in Poland when the Soviet house of cards fell? [237]

wiśnie and czereśnie

wisnie, similar to visne in turkish, is sour cherry.
czeresnie word looks like chirez, kirez/kiraz in turkish which means cherry with no sour taste.

Poland grows a lot of cherries of many different types.

are they normal cherries or mostly sour cherries.. sour cherries can be grown in relatively colder climates, but, normal cherries, especially the red big ones with much juicy need warmer climates.

So you never seen pears,blueberries,gooseberries,black and red currants,plums,raspberries,cherrys,WHAT'S CZEREŚNIE IN ENG? and apricots in Poland?

Some of these fruits can't be grown in cold climates like Poland. For example, cherry. Are you sure it is grown there or imported?
