Why Do You Love Poland?

Here, in PF, some guys take it personally ;). Yes, I have seen quite a few (even trashy looking) western guys needless to say loosers in their home countries (western girls/women are more choosy so they don't want them) having "great success" with SOME Polish girls/women. As I wrote, I don't say ALL westerners but unfortunately many of them correspond to what I'm saying. It is like those oldish or problem guys in the west who have to choose Russian or Ukrainian girls/women from catalogues.

Of course, PF members fitting my comments don't like my messages but ... trudno! ;)

I will never forget when I was working in Greece , two Greek girls were telling me laughingly how British men 'looked like pushti' (gay) because their muscles were small and they wore baggy tshirts.

I hear the same in Latin America.

While strong types like Americans, Australians or Russians make a lot of success, usually brits are target of jokes because they are very female.

oh dont be more stupid than you have to be Levi, and use the rest of my quote.
I bet you are a thin little guy who thinks he should be pumped up with a tache, to look like a real gay.

When you've been in Poland for more than the odd weekend now and then, you'll notice that British men in Poland tend to do very very well when it comes to female friends.

One thing I love about Poland is that, as a wider society, it has easily the best taste in American/British (mainly talking about American) music in mainland Europe. All types, from jazz to country, 60s, 90s and beyond. This is based on people I've met, musing playing at bars and coffee shops, music on the radio. I say that having been to every country in Europe. Italy is a close second. Czech Republic is decent, Finland is decent (about half the society), Portugal may be decent, everywhere else pretty much sucks in comparison. Germany, while it has huge subcultures of good music lovers, is the worst.

Poland and Italy's might even be better than Ireland.

One thing: PLEASE PLEASE stop playing Last Christmas by Wham! EVERYWHERE....it's half decent, but you don't have to play it every third Christmas song.

@LoneStranger

Well, there are quite some reasons! To me it evolved slowly.

At the age of 14/15 I found out that my great-grandfather ( I've never met ) was Polish. So I started to build up an interest in Polish culture and language. About 3 years ago, I moved to the UK and noticed that Poland has quite some similarities to Germany, especially when it comes to food. So I was even more interested in Poland. Now I started to learn Polish language, cook Polish food and try to meet Polish people.

You have to know that I always was interested in slavic countries like Russia, my favour for Poland came quite late, but is one of the most serious interests I have in a country besides the UK I live in.

I love Poland

be careful not to overquoting anymore
I am Polish and I think the title of your thread is a bit strange to say the least, I love Poland too but I consider such emotive description of love for Poland too fantastic. You are painting it as some kind of paradise, it begins to sound also as self riches, at such a point it must be balanced by negative outlook so that your love for Poland becomes realistic. Such infatuation with Poland will not be able to be sustained once you start to meet with disappointments and hurdles in Poland. This thread is too unreal and too self sublime in respect to Poland as a country, Poland has to be modest about its nationality and character but yet defend it and cultivate, however, not flaunt it like in this forum.

@Ktos

I also can't use the term " love ". I love my wife, I love my parents. But how can I love a country? A country is a land, a government and a massive amount of people, hard to love something you hardly know. Even Poles can't know all other Poles and everyone in the government.

The title should be " Why are you in to Polish culture " or " Why do you like Poland " .

If I would have to use " Love " in connection with a country, I would say I love the UK, because this is the country I live in, I buy my food in, I breath the air in, I am safe in. Would be weird to " LOVE " a place I don't even live in.

hmm tough question to answer,

Mum and dad were born in Poland but sadly were deported, they often spoke about their loss of country and loved ones Buried in Poland, with no one to stand over their graves to pray or put flowers.

I felt a real sense of grieving from them, It also installed a deep felt connection to Poland within me, I Returned to live here today.

Is it ok for me to say that I love Poland through the love my parents had for our ancestors and the lands they lost, I too have come to find the inner beauty of Poland

Of course it's ok and if it's too poetic and romantic for the cynics and pragmatists of this world, well, that' just too bad for them.

No! It is not fine to say that. That is because you do not truly affiliate with Poland to the point where you would defend or worry about it in times of crisis or commiserate all the moments you spent there with great longing that only a true Polish could feel for his/her country. How could you feel that since you only know Poland through the eyes of your parents, you need to experience the country and best in your earliest years to develop a deep feelings for it like love. Your parents may state their love for Poland as it could be real love for a country of their birth. However, another issue here is the use of the term "love"; in the statement about love for Poland I think it would be strange to include love for Polish flowers, love for Polish air etc. The word "love" is too intimate to be used so loosely. You do not love Poland, you may like some things about it, you may have some empathy towards Polish folk's ordeal but you can not love It only through your parents experiences. Today, the term "love" is being used too freely and it is loosing its meaning, don't get caught in it.

KTOS "That is because you do not truly affiliate with Poland to the point where you would defend or worry about it in times of crisis ",

I'm Polish I live in poland , My Father was in the Polish army, my Grandfather was In the Polish army, I am trained In shooting most hand guns and rifles up to the .338 lampua, plus if it ever came to it the Polish Szabla, and hand to hand combat. Don't worry no one is commit to steal from me or my country without a fight.

I have had a good life, I don't give a damn dying defending Poland.

I don't think I would ever see your young naive butt ever leave Australia if Poland was in trouble, why have you deserted Poland to amass personal fortune in Australia when you should be here contributing to Poland's economy , and stop ranting as if you are some kind special status pole when you are just probably Polish bt accident of birth.

Sorry Mod the pip squeak took one step too far.

Mum and dad were born in Poland but sadly were deported

and then this comment:

I'm Polish I live in poland

You were born overseas so you have not returned to Poland, if anything you came to Poland as a foreigner. Your story is unclear or you are making things up, tell the whole story next time. You are Polish because you live in Poland or because your parents were/are Polish? Neither will make you Polish. In any case, your written English is hopeless, very vague, hard to infer anything from it.

Your reply to my comment is idiotic you idiot, idiocy is a pain to others, please refrain from applying it here.

I thought this was about love for Poland and not about pseudo Polish making love to American gay. It kinda looks like that when you are butt kissing another member on this forum, bad ktos frustrated you so you run to your boyfriend. Pathetic, you want to write something you write to me instead of crying to other PF member, no balls.

Great, but you never actually served in Polish army have you? It is interesting how you only always refer to you parents or grannies for having done something Polish related, only you are not in the picture, pity. Fine, you love Poland because (again) your daddy loved It, okay, I believe you. Happy?

To all those professing love for Poland here: I am not trying to be malicious but I am confronting fake attitudes that seem to be in fashion today. Some celebrity visits Russia and is asked in radio interview about their experience and they start to burst out in extacy like manner as to how much they love Russia (they just arrived a day before for first time in Russia), is that strange, unreal or not? It is fake, of course. Confront your true feelings first then talk about love for a particular country.

Well, it is not this thread but I have to respond anyway, western girls are more choosy? No, no more choosy than girls from Poland or other countries, they just don't want those particular men who then come to Russia or Poland or Ukraine for women who are usually after their money and nothing else. Otherwise, I like your comment, spot on!

Maybe you love Poland but your reasons do not correspond to that. I may feel sorry for African nations being abused by rich corporations, i may understand their experience and be able to put myself in their predicament and my parents may be from Africa but that is just compassion or empathy. Where is love for Africa in that?

Now I really don't care if I'm banned for life for saying this, but it's quite obvious to anyone that our friend the K Man has his issues. If I were an FBI profiler - and who's to say I'm not - I'd say he's at least somewhere on the Autistic spectrum, (hence the lack of any ability to empathise), the tone of giving orders and telling people what to think and how to behave is also very common in people with Autism. However having worked with Autistic children I can say from experience that the high functioning ones are quite capable of learning how to modify their behaviours so being on the spectrum is not an excuse for his behaviour.

He's also quite possibly on meds for paranoid Schizophrenia which is a common disorder in young men of what I imagine to be his age. His posts certainly show many of the symptoms. This would also account for why he is no longer in the Army, if he ever was. But if he was, that's one of the places where a disorder such as that is picked up on very quickly and is a big no-no. He may be in some form of residential unit as his access to a computer seems to be sporadic and may be based on periods of responding well to treatment and being allowed computer privileges.

Or of course I may be talking utter nonsense - we'll never know will we? Anyway, whatever his mental health issues, he can overcome them.

No, you are being a judgmental prick and you are usurping position to make judgmental about people about whom you know nothing. . You are confronting nothing here you are mouthing some utter nonsense.

Yes your true love.

Who are you exactly? Nikt!
You remind me a member from a few years back. He was as cocky and so full of himself as you until one day few 'mates' of his kicked seven shades of shy@@te out of him. After short spell in the hospital he was a different man, a better man I would say.
