polskilova 15 Jun 2014 #1Hi there! I've just started dating a Polish guy who has been in the country 12 months. His English is good but he has trouble understanding on the phone so we mostly text or email. I've never really dated because I've had lots of relationships but I can sense some cultural differences and I just wanted some advice to make sure I'm reading him right and not misunderstanding because of our cultural differences.We've been dating 6 weeks and we are intimate. I'm not sure now if that was good but I wanted too and so did he.He says he really likes me. I like him.He says I remind him of his mum, which I didn't know how to take but just said, you remind me of my cousin.He makes dates well in advance.He always pays and is very sweet, affectionate and kind, thoughtful and gentle.I was thinking this was a hook up but when I asked him, he didn't even know what it was, and had to Google it. Which it was like oh no we are definitively at dating stage.What is typical in Polish culture when a Polish man says this? He told me that he isn't busy with other dates but I thought when you date you see other people?I don't want to hurt his feelings because I've misunderstood, but also don't want to invest emotionally if this is just a hook up.The last time we were together he asked me would I like to live in oslo with him but I don't know if this is just player talk.I've never known a Pole before and can't work out if he's saying things to say them or he means what he says. What is typical of a Polish man? He's early 30's well educated.
