Are Poles typically nasty people?

I think most of the people on here are pretty nasty or at least neutral and I'm suprised because I've heard they are so nice (I've never met any Poles before my grandma died a long time ago). Is it because they live in such a crappy country or is it just a genetic personality trait?

No, it's just because you are a spoilt /<unt ;)

We are just nasty to people like you.

Could be the genes... For hundreds of years we learned to look down on people, we are a master race you know. We just had some bad luck the past 100 years ;)

PF seems to bring out the nasties. The Poles I've met in person were nice. Well, except for one... But I think she was just mad that I was trying to get with her friend...

But I am a Pole (confusion). I have typical slav personality traits and many people think I look pretty strongly Western Slav and/or Russian. Why do you have disdain for people of your own blood? It bothers me just a little because I feel like I can't relate to white Americans very much and I feel much more inclined to agree with people of Slavic descent. I feel like I have much more in common with them. There are not any or very few Eastern Euros in the part of the US where I live.

Haha I would probably be annoyed too. Its not a very nice thing when someone wants to use you to get with someone you know.

This is a typical online forum. People are anonymous. they write what they think, unlike in person when they will use social niceties.

You're not. You're American.

Get a grip.

Now Now Allison.

Don't you think you're being unfair and nasty yourself by throwing around these anti-Polish generalities?

I am of Polish ancestry and I am one of the nicest people I know! :D

Most of ppl here are americans just like you who are "proud of their white polish heritage" ;DDD

oh, I did't know you're biologist, Allison... xDDD

I have typical slav personality traits and many people think I look pretty strongly Western Slav and/or Russian.

and how does a standard slav look like? And what are those personality traits? xD

It bothers me just a little because I feel like I can't relate to white Americans very much and I feel much more inclined to agree with people of Slavic descent.

Oh, I forgot Slavs aren't white... we are the 4th race xDDD

I wouldn't say they were nasty, but some can come across like that to English/Americans who are used to over-the-top customer service, and political correctness.

I have found that Polish, and Germans/French for that matter.. are more to the point, and don't use long phrases such as "Sorry for bothering you, but would you mind doing this for me, as long as it's ok?"

And anyway, you can't judge an entire country based on what a few angry people post on an Internet forum.

They are nasty if you carry the hammer and sickle.

The more time I spend in here, the more I value Seanus's :" some are, some aren't".
Simple and obvious.

Try to be silly - they will call you 17 and stupid.
Be smart and Polish - few British girls will talk with you if any.
Try to say sth wise- they will answer sth like "weird stuff".

It' a real society, not it's mirror.

Somebody will flirt with you, sb will ask you for a date, sb will want to discuss, somebody will call things you say trollish or b****, somebody will say, you "generalise", sb will envy you although he/she knows nothing about you, sb will not start to talk to you just because your nickname does not sound good for him/her.

Being in here you are a part of of society, you just have to accept and play with their rules.
If you say to them that they are nasty or neutral it will mean for them that you see them this way. You give a clear comunicate to them then.

Say them: you are great, I like you, I like to laugh...
They will accept you... or hate you.
:)
In other cases you can become an outsider.
Speak you mind - that is all what I wanted to say actually.

Some guys could make you feel like eighteen..

What if she's a he and fat?

Edit.

"I think i'm intelligent" is just a f*cking awesome statement to make:)))

I don't care if you got a typical "slav" personality. Your parents lied to you... You are an ukrainian, but your parents told you that they were poles so you could feel a little bit proud of your heritage...

Ofc you can't relate to white americans when you think like black people do ;)

Ironical that a person asked a question formed from her own experiences (whether she be trolling or not), and the people in this forum not only justified it, but went over and beyond the call of duty to ensure that her assumptions were spot on. Heh. Very interesting.

True, oldengishbird, but the amount of nastiness and immature responses in this thread is beyond astounding!

In this area (and I make a point of saying in this area where I have 5 years experience - no idea what people are like in big towns or other parts of Poland?) they are nice to me, always had a good reaction from people here......but to each other?? if you are not family then you are enemy.....just the way they are hereabouts and so yes they are nasty to each other, but I suspect a hard life on farms in the arse end of nowhere does that to you.
