Listen, I met different men, of course mostly Polish, however few foreigners as well. I always looked at what kind of person the guy is not at his passport.
It is like that when you are in love and thinking about man as being that companion, it is like that only at the beginning, after time it changes and some things become obstacles too hard to overcome.
Compromises are necesarry but it can have a lot of adventages as well.
These are not the usual compromises though, I think you do not realise what impact culture can have on us and our psyche, how it shapes our point of view, how strongly, this may not be noticeable at first it surfaces later and people become surprised how much influence it has on their own thinking, behaviour and needs and in consequence the relationship.
