I don't think there's any shame in being the wilder sort really.
Neither do I. Which is why I said I didn't want to sound derogatory. I find wild people interesting and the most likeable. I spent most of my life in the UK hanging around with people on the wilder side. Conversely I've spent most of my life in Poland with people on the more conservative side. Which is why I say you can't generalise.
I wasn't exactly a battered husband in the UK but I've been on the recieving end of a few freshly brewed mugs of tea thrown in my direction and on a couple of ocasions a cut glass ashtray. But I wouldn't begin to claim all English girls are violent.
oh Steve, you've not been on this Forum long enough to learn that the above is true about any race but with this one, single exception - The Polish Race.
Read through the posts (especially the Relationships and Marriage section is very interesting, extremely creative and full of precious and remarkable observations) and you will see that The Polish Race is just apart!
Correct I haven't been on this forum long enough to read all the posts. But I'm getting the idea that there is a concensus on this forum that racially Polish women are apart from other nationalities (in a negative way). I have however spent 30% of my adult life here and have met a large mixture of people, some nice some not so nice. I know it's boring and a bit PC but I don't believe you should insult Polish women by generalising.
I agree there are some common customs amongst them like insisting on cleaning the house and I mean really cleaning, before any visiting guests arrive (perhaps they adopted Hyacinth Bucket as a role model). But I haven't noticed common traits of bad manners, violence etc.
