Hi - am interested in a Polish girl ive met a couple of times but her personality is rather quiet and i sort of have to guide the conversation - are there certain subjects Polish like to talk about or even avoid?

Is this a normal thing with some Polish girls, will they open up more in time or stay a bit quiet?

Polish like to talk about

butterflies, rainbows, candy and Norwegian death metal, these are topics that all Poles are fluent in.

even avoid

cheese, sheep and jazz music, these 3 subjects are like kryptonite for Poles.

Godspeed!

Hope not one of the poles get offended,

But most of the times that i am with my polish friends they are complaining.

Complaining pessimistically about virtually everything that you can imagine, from the food to the weather, going through music or the color of the walls.

So just complain together with them and it wil be ok.

Don't believe that.

That's true!

Recently when I talk with my friends we complain the most about politicians, situation in Ukraine, Putin, candidates for President, our families etc.

Complain with us! :-)

Maybe they just wish to spread their misery worldwide. The poles always complain that the English don' t complain enough, although they do find kinship in the Irish and Scots bcus they are grumpy baskets...

Usually try to be more positive rather than complain - sports, music, movies, weather, work / business, life.

I lived with Polish people now for 2 years at work. Im Swedish, when the see each other in the morning they have 40 questions to each other right away 6am in the morning. After work they talk for 3-5 hours all the time. And at work if they must fix 10 screws of lift something for 5 second they become crazy and screaming KURWA. Ohh ja pierdole. And they only think of them self. If You leave a empty coffee cup no Polish guy will ever touch it because they know its not their cup. NEVER leave cash, tools, personal things in a room with Polish people they will steal it right away and make up the worlds weirdest lies right to your face like "-I dont know, I have no idea" even if they are on camera they believe their own lies.

How many Poles raped Swedish women? I heard that Somalis never swear and are very polite - until they are not.

Yes. In my case, we talk about cats coz we are obsessed about them.

1. You are basically complaining that Poles "overcommunicate" compared to how much Swedes communicate (newsflash Scandinavians in general communicate very little)

2. Yeah Poles are also far more emotional and burst it out by screaming swear words (the lower the social position, the higher frequency of swearing)

3. Most Poles are not raised in the same sense of community like Scandinavians, it's a cultural gap. While Poles tend to have a tremendously high degree of self consciousness about their own needs, others needs need to be stated. Otherwise it will be ignored, Polish society has become well accustomed to a plural thought where there is no guarantee of an other persons habits are the same as ones own. While Scandinavian society's are more accustomed to a set of rules that everyone needs to follow in a much higher degree.

4. Fight your dragons and guard your treasures! :)
There is a Polish saying: "Don't sleep or they will rob you"
There is no excuse to not be responsible for yourself! :)

I thought it is the opposite. It is a Polish trait to be too caring, considerate and thoughtful of others, especially when you are offered food and drink at the Polish table. Then they impose extra portions and refills on you.

Unless you are a Somali or some other kind of refugee. Then you are exempt.
I find it ironic that a Swede would complain about Poles swearing a lot - in Polish!

"So just complain together with them and it wil be ok."

I used to do this in the ice center at adelanto complain about everything in there and being there since technically my sentence was up wnd I signed the waiver really the only person besides a German in that whole facility to go home or to Poland and the fact they kept me in there locked away behind w key months after signing it and completing my prison sentence was a lot to complain about. dont you guys agree?

the reason I mentioned this because me and this tall Lithuanian guy sileikis of Russian origin I think (he claims his dad was born in a gulag) who by the way recently told me i was right as he ended up also deported after years of tribulations going to court paying craploads of money tons of thousands his family did for lawyers multiple probations or electronic monitoring for both his federal parole and supervision of his international court case etc. they ended up deporting him anyway and i signed it day one and he kept arguing with me also claimed that I complained too much and i eventually told him this argument which was that I am polish and thats what we do. What do u fink John? was I right?

@pawian
That is when hosting a meal (The hosts rules apply) and hospitality seems to be far greater trait shared across local variations. So hospitality is a far more cultural/national trait then local culture (what food to eat/how to drive/Warsaw vs Kraków differences)
