Out of 120 thousand

How did you arrive at this figure, Ironside?

Hmmmmm, very interesting. Do you work for or with the Polish government?

Here you go :) An education lesson for Polishmama.
It's even with Polish subtitles to educate the masses, I'm a University lecturer and educate students on 'Politics' and 'Religion' and sometimes include video's

like this in my lectures.

Wow this is something I have to say. My Polish flatmate was reading this and showed me this post. I had to comment on our behalves. I am not sure what Irish men you are meeting or your friends. The bad ones you are describing are the minority. The majority I have met here are well travelled, open minded, cultured and educated. I am also a foreigner living here. I came 3 years ago from Italy and have made Irish and foreign friends. From my observations about most immigrants I can attest that many of them tend to only associate with their own and other foreigners. Most of the time they end up saying bad things about Ireland and to my flatmate and I we know it is because they are not assimilated to Irish society which is sad to be honest.

As regards to the men here, my goodness have you travelled much to other countries? Because from my travels, I noticed that Irish guys are shyer and more reserved compared to men in other EU countries. I think you are mistaking shyness with immaturity which are two seperate things. Dating foreign women and not introducing them to friends and family because they are embarrassed? Wow really, maybe these guys only wanted sex. There are some guys (and ladies too) here who "snog" or have casual sex it has nothing to do with being foreign. Casual sex is not seen as bad like in our cultures. We are a little more traditional when it comes to sex. These are just social differences and we don’t have to accept them it’s just the way it is here. The fresh meat comment has to be over the top and complete nonsense. You want to know what it feels like to be treated like fresh meat? Come to my village where guys are always staring, some that follow you and others that "chance their arm" with you. If anything the guys here are gentlemen compared to other countries I travelled to. Foreign women (including men) in Ireland are considered “exotic and different” no different for me about the guys here. Immigration is fairly new here compared to England and the rest of continental Europe. In case you may have not experienced it in other countries, you may be surprised but Ireland treats its foreigners better than most other EU countries.

I am sorry to say people who comment about Eastern European women that are portrayed as gold diggers or want immigration status or escorts treated as sub-human will not only be found in Ireland, unfortunately most of the world thinks this way and I am embarrassed for them as much as I am for you. Generalisations of a whole group of Eastern European women is equally appalling as yours about Irish men. If there is one issue I do agree with you about your post is the issue of alcohol in Ireland; both the men and women here drink way too much and binge drinking is a real problem. I see it many weekends when I work night shifts in A&E. But Polish men are not too far behind in this regard and my flatmate confirms this. Alcohol is also an issue in Poland too. Depression rates and mental illness rates in Ireland is lower than most countries in the EU and definitely much lower than that of the States, Korea and Japan which the last two have almost double the depression and suicide rates of Ireland. I read enough stats on this topic as it is in my line of work. One more thing what exactly do you mean the men are not ambitious here? Look at the thousands emigrating abroad because they don’t want to sit on their arses all day with no job. Instead of whining, they are doing something about it and moving as far away to Australia for work which is quite determined if you ask me.

If anyone needs more education, open-mindedness and culture it is you regarding Ireland and its people.

Another opinion video. Thank you.

Back on topic. The Irish and the Polish have a very similar history, so it would seem very odd for any Irishmen to think lowly of any Pole, imo.

While Poles on the other hand are allowed to throw such bullshit accusations at the Irish as Akimo did over here?

Sure thing, I'm just pointing out that Akimo dropped the bomb on this thread and since then it isn't exactly about Irish blaming Poles for anything.

Merged: Do British guys like Polish girls?

hello everybody

I'd like to have british boyfriend and wonder if its possible. do they like foreign women? are brithish open people and its easy for them to pick up a girl? men in Poland are cold and rather dont talk to girls they dont know.

Of course some British men like foreign women. Even some British women like foreign men. And don't forget that British men and women still fancy each other too.

Sure, British men are open to picking up girls (foreign or not) but what matters is do they want to keep you or just take you to bed a few times? Also, divorce is still more likely to occur in the UK and less so in Poland. You may think Polish men are cold but British men are not generally known for showing or having warm, caring emotions. Like anywhere it rests solely with an individual and their economic means to be a provider and not simply their nationality or ethnic origin.

So if you want a British man that is your business but just make sure that your relationship is based on true love and not something else. Ask yourself what would you do once the novelty of being a foreigner to each other wears off or when the non-EU Commonwealth migrant living in the UK that you thought was British no longer wants you because they could not get permanent EU residency or no longer needs you because they got it thanks to you?

I think it is quite common for people to be attracted to people of other countries, so I would say yes to the first question.

And on the British people themselves... Let's just say, I dislike the majority of them. There are a few nice people, but there a lot of a**-h*l*s in the country.

My impression of the UK was that in some age groups, there's a shortage of single females or a surplus of single males. I think in the big cities, it's quite easy for women to meet men whether in the usual places or at dating activities such as speed dating or internet dating. My female friends tell me there are a lot of players and creeps in the UK and it's not so easy - but I think a lot of them are just very fussy or only want the Brad Pitt level of attractiveness in their partner. I think for realistic women, there are plenty of decent British men still available if you choose carefully and take your time

Are you fat?

No theyre not cold. Most of them are wimps and require you to make the first move, as surprising as that may sound. If youre half decent looking you probably have a plethora of dudes eyeing you everyday. The era of being swept off your feet on the dancefloor by some suave cool dude are long gone. .

I'm not fat.

Just wondered if maybe British men arent as shy as Poles, because Im going to go to Britain to get some rest. Whole life all the people used to tell that it isnt right for girl to pick up boys. If someone is trying to get my number or something, he is the dumbest boy on the planet.

Thanks for answers

British men adore Polish women. They generally like all foreign women, but are generally particularly partial to Central/Eastern European women, so I'm sure you will have lots of offers.

You just need to go down the pub, have an orange juice and wait. Soon someone will come and talk to you.

And/or get some English friends and go to a few barbecues (the season approaches) - you will soon have several lurching drunken English guys being very nice to you and making you cups of tea.

It sounds like I'm joking, but I'm not. I'm English. I should know.

I, on the other hand, have chosen the hard route of a Polish man ... no cups of tea there (because I don't drink tea according to the rules, so I am not allowed it ...).

English guys are nice. They will love you. They will try to dig the garden and light the bbq. They might spend too long at the pub, but they won't do anything bad. They will never hurt you. They will appreciate you. They will remember your birthday. Try one.

That would need a lot of courage and confidence to pull that off, but you're right it wouldn't be long before someone came to talk to her.

you seem to hate Polish people, Poland, and now English men as well. What happened? You probably thought that fat ugly English szmata couldn't turn you down, but she did, so you go Poland and think that every Polish woman is pusta szmula who is desperate for western expat, but Polish woman tell you to **** off as well? Nothing worse than moaning dumb expats.

As a male in England with celtic background....can I just say the obvious?
There are good/bad and awfull Englishmen/Polishmen/frenchmen/German men ....you get where Im going here? :)
You will find a nice Hugh Grant type or you can find yourself with a complete psychopath just as you could at home.
One thing you dont want to do is narrow your search to Englishmen alone, dont forget us Scotsmen,Irishmen and even those Welsh men should get a look in if you are being generous ;)

If you want to go somewhere where people are open and will talk and be friendly with strangers may I suggest dont even bother with London,its a cold,horrible place untill you have been there a long time, come up North, we talk to anyone around here,far more welcoming in Yorkshire than down south :)

Oooohh someones been following my posts. So in response as Ive got the whole day to waste...

Expat?? Wtf? Im Polish. Next. My comment was directed towards Poles, not English guys, try reading comprehension ya limey toad. Next. Im engaged. Must have hit a bit too close to the mark with you, eh? Awaiting your reply.

that fat ugly English szmata

I know I am taking this out of context, but it seems a bit unkind, warszawa-angole. Sounds like vocabulary with which you are both comfortable and familiar.

My comment was directed towards Poles, not English guys, try reading comprehension ya limey toad.

Quite right. I don't understand W-A's point really.

Ok, about fatness:
Yes, if you are fat and unattractive, you really really won't get lots of Polish guys around you - they, probably sensibly, know themselves, and know that if they took up with a porker, they would soon be laying into her everyday (verbally at least) about how she is a tlusta suka, and giving her the nickname grubasie. So better that they don't hook up with here in the first place.

English guys, on the other hand, are a lot more ... what shall we call it ... accepting (I know, a generalisation, but in Poland it is de rigeur that one is NOT FAT)(at all).

And about Polish v. English guys chatting people up:
Polish guys usually only chat up when they are quite prepared to go and immediately have sex with someone.
English guys will chat anyone up, just out of general good humour.

come up North, we talk to anyone around here,far more welcoming in Yorkshire than down south :)

By far the best advice.
Yorkshire men: real.
Southern men: jelopy.

I have not once observed a similarity between Polish guys and Yorkshire guys. A positive comparison. I have even thought that my liking for Polish guys comes from having had a Yorkshire father.

So: if you want a British boyfriend, because Polish guys don't want you (sorry, but that's the crux of it with them: if they wanted you, they would pursue you) - then all manner of British guys will be up for it. If you want warm, real men types, then go to Yorkshire. In London you will get pale-faced thin guys who cycle too much, and every other nationality you can think of (might be hard to find an Englander ...). In general, though, it will be easier than with Poles, because there must be something about you that doesn't work for them (they are not usually backwards in coming forward, shall we say).

Brits ARE generally more accepting than Polish guys, I think ... so good luck. You won't need it. It will be easy.

I am an Irishman living in London, I have three university degrees and consider myself to be quiet educated, all of my friends back home have at least one third level qualification. Ireland is a rich cultural nation, and most of its inhabitants have a great understanding about the world outside Ireland, the Irish diaspora throughout the world is evidence of that, for such a small nation. however I can understand someone making a sweeping judgements about the people she meets, and the people she surrounds herself with, it is not an accurate description of the true nature of an Irishman. As a small Western country, we have a deeper involvement with the wider world than most countries, throughout our history, through immigration, and indeed our imperial past as a part of the British Empire. Our small country can boast of the best authors in the English language, James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, WB Yates. just to name a few. Our university's are some of the most respected. i.e. Trinity College Dublin & Queens University Belfast. I suppose if you were friendly with some of the students or graduates, you would have formed a different opinion of the 'average Irishman'. lol

If its one thing I have learned in life, it's that you can make sweeping generalisations. As people, we just don't fit into little boxes. I could look at the polish men that I know, from working with them on my building sites. I probably would form an opinion far worse than the itemised list that was presented to us above. I would have to list 'uneducated, lazy, ignorant, uncultured, and smelly', but that is just the case with most building site labourers. But obviously I realise that is not the case with all Polish people.

I haven't read all the posts before this one but this in itself isn't a bad piece of writing, although the building site labourers might claim that you are being unfair to them just as another poster is being to unfair to Irish people. There is also a whole other can of worms here for debate also about intelligence, education and just being a decent human being. etc.

lolIf its one thing I have learned in life, it's that you can make sweeping generalisations.

I am afraid that builders will have to be included in this :-)

This thread seems to have morphed into an anti-immigration rant in parts.. But to answer the question, the answer is (of course depending on the person etc) a resounding yes..

I think previous posters have pretty well criticised the observations about the average, undesirable Irish male.. That said, I myself am a narrow-minded, mentally unwell, emotionally constipated, alcohol-addicted, semi-illiterate, really foul-smelling philistine - it is true - but I swear I am not representative of all Irishmen..!
