Slavic beauty falls into what most people consider ‘exotic’. Tight jaws and slim bodies that are like girls that walked right out of your fantasies. You can see a broader overview of this in our guide to Slavic Brides.
Poland has many things to offer
Poland is a small country located in the heart of Europe. Despite the many years that have passed since the fall of the Nazis, it is known for being a monumental turning point during the war.
It borders Belarus, the Czech Republic, Lithuania and Russia. Other things the Poles are known for is being reclusive, eating more potatoes than any other country in the world and incredible natural scenery.
What are Polish Women Like?
The most basic description of Polish women is that they have very positive attitudes towards life. They like their lives as fun as possible. That’s something that most of us single guys really appreciate, too.
To some extent, they are traditionalists. A lot of women definitely hold the view that the man is supposed to be in charge, but a few of them are proud and like to live by their own rules.
They are usually pretty tolerant of other people’s views about life. In case of a disagreement (because they will happen), expect her to be level-headed about it. The importance of being cool and polite is very well looked up on. Spend some time reading up on the temper of Latin brides and you will really appreciate this.
These girls are educated!
When it comes to education, the Polish education system is highly-respected amongst academics. It currently has the highest number of higher education students in all of Europe. This means its population is one of the most educated and specialized on the whole continent. The women especially understand the importance of education. Almost every single Polish girl can read and write at a high level.
If you’re one for meaningful conversations, a Polish wife might be the woman of your dreams. As long as you have something to bring to the table, they will reciprocate. They have experiences and stories of their own and will share them without fear of judgment.
Their education system encourages creativity and self-expression, bringing out women who are lovely conversationalists and lots of fun to be around. This is a rarity among countries where mail order brides are common. But it’s one that anyone with a western education will love.
Stunning by nature
Polish women are famous for their dislike of makeup and such accessories. There are lots of women who use top-name brands like L’Oreal and Maybelline, but cosmetics aren’t all that popular in the country.
They are pretty good at taking care of their bodies. Maintaining young-looking skin and keeping their hair flowing and neat. Pampering themselves up, whether for themselves or for a man they love, is an ingrained trait.
Seriously supportive women
Polish women are very protective of their partners. When they pick a man they want to marry, they treat the relationship with respect and help him build himself up to the best of their ability.
She wants you to be the best you can be. And her being the best she can be doesn’t mean her getting a career. It means being a part of making you successful at yours.
They are pretty good at communicating their needs. When something is amiss, expect to be called out about it, and when they need you to do something for it, there’s no beating around the bush.
When it comes to relationships, they stand by monogamy and are always serious about being with their man.
They are religious gals
One thing to keep in mind is that the country is very big on church activities. A great percentage of the population holds very strong beliefs regarding religion. This translates directly in a lot of other things they do. Including the way they dress and the way they relate to other people.
For instance, Polish woman are just as pretty as Brazilian women. Yet she doesn’t dress in the same kind of sexy outfits we are used to seeing them in. They prefer flowing dresses and something to keep them warm. Fair enough, the country does lie in one of the colder part of the continent.
Which is not to say they’re not fashionable. They are experts at locking in that innocent girl look.
But don’t fall too deep for the look. Switching from that to a party girl will happen so fast, you will miss it if you blink.
Dating Polish Women
Getting into a relationship is a huge commitment. For which reason, most Polish women don’t just jump into the arms of the first man to ask them out. It’s a decision that will have a huge impact on their day-to-day lives. And because they are so supportive of their man, they respect that commitment and take it seriously.
Not saying Polish women aren’t up for ‘just fun’. In fact, when not in a relationship, they are quite liberal and willing to explore.
But once committed to a relationship, it’s a big part of her life. By contrast, in America, all too often the relationship is just something she does in between working on her career.
They have an adventurous spirit
Polish women have a keen sense of adventure. They are especially curious about dating men from the US and Canada. However, preferences vary, and most of them are pretty happy with whatever kind of person lands in their path.
The idea here is to be exposed to new possibilities and someone who shares the same kind of interests as she does.
As long as you’re polite and are able to get along with her friends, you will have an amazing time. If you ever read our guide to women from the Czech Republic, they share a very similar attitude.
A lot of aspects of their traditions and culture are shared. They enjoy the same kind of passionate, considerate men. All the same, even the most charming, handsome and loving guy on the planet has some getting used to if he’s not from Poland.
Getting used to the culture
There are two aspects of Polish culture that are a little bit odd for someone who has spent his whole life high-fiving, fist-bumping and shaking hands with his friends.
People who have never lived in Europe may have their work cut out for them. A lot of these are similar to western European traditions.
Hand-kissing – Yes, it’s a thing
This is an old-timey aspect of chivalry that’s still quite common in upper classes of Polish culture today. If done right, it can work miracles for anyone.
There is a whole set of guidelines of how to do it and when to do it and avoid making everyone (including yourself) uncomfortable. Per the NYT:
in Poland truck drivers, coal miners, police officers, professors, journalists, party sympathizers and Solidarity activists all kiss the hands of women upon meeting, and women all routinely extend their hands to be kissed
Pro Tip: Never lift your date’s hand up to your hand (while you’re standing straight up) in order to kiss it. Bend forward, your head downwards, and raise it as little as possible. It might take a few tries, but you’ll get used to it.
Kissing on both cheeks – Don’t do what I did!
This tradition has endured the ages and is very common among the younger generation.
It’s not a sign of endearment and is commonly used by close friends, even outside dating situations. This might also take a few tries and practice to read the other person’s body language and properly coordinate, though. Confidence helps! Just act like you know what you’re doing.
But don’t do what I did! It was early in my European travel days. I met a girl for the first time and when she went to cheek kiss me…I kind of turned towards her, as if we were going to kiss on the lips! You will have to trust me when I say I was NOT trying to kiss her on the lips. It was just some sort of automatic reaction. Her lips coming at me…my brain confused…lips made the audible call and started the head moving towards it’s inevitable conclusion.
Fortunately, I didn’t turn all the way and actually lip-lock this girl I just met. But I turned enough for her to notice. And boy did she back off quick! She didn’t wait for me to do the cheek kiss. Oops! Awkward!
What A Polish Bride Will Expect From You
It’s not an absolute requirement but buying flowers for your date is a nice gesture. Regardless of the occasion – a birthday, a party or an anniversary, flowers fit every occasion. In fact, there doesn’t even have to be an occasion at all! Maybe you’re just happy to see her and thought you should get her some flowers.
Paying the bill
Times have changed since the days when the answer to who should table the cost of the meal would easily be the man without the moment’s hesitation. Poland is a pretty modern country, even by the harshest standards, meaning the women are more educated and more liberated than a lot of other countries out there.
Some Polish women – especially those with a career – won’t be entirely comfortable with anyone taking on the burden of paying the bill. Which is to say if she offers to split the bill, be a gent and accept her offer. It’s only good manners. On the other hand, a lot of the women don’t mind being treated by the man. They won’t mind you handling the whole tab.
Respect her for who she is
Which brings us to the next point. There’s no need to force her into doing what you want. For instance, if she offers to pay part of the bill, let her have her way. Polish girls don’t appreciate being judged for the choices they make, much like most people in the world.
For example, if you don’t like what she is wearing – maybe her dress is too short for your liking or she’s revealing too much cleavage for your taste, reserve the judgment. They are quite outspoken. She might give you an earful if you overstep her boundaries.
In which case, don’t worry yourself too much. There are millions of Polish women in the country, all single and ready to enter relationships. Don’t let one bad date ruin your taste for the lovely petite women that are all over the nation.
But I am confident if you read this guide and the article on Euopean women, you will be able to avoid the worst mistakes.
Do you need to learn to speak Polish?
Nobody is pointing a gun to your head and forcing you to, but learning her language is the grandest of gestures.
Getting used to the culture is one thing. But learning how to speak her tongue is a ‘next level’ move. Admittedly, it can get a little bit challenging along the way. All Slavic languages are tough to master. But she will be more than willing to help you learn.
Even better, you could help her perfect her pronunciation of English words.
Do Polish Women Make Good Wives?
People have lots of different opinions regarding women with the kind of charm and raw beauty that Polish women exude.
High maintenance girls?
You are told to be especially wary of women who spend as much time as they do keeping up with the latest fashion trends. And perfecting the way they look. If, the tales go, they spend so much time making themselves look like that, will they ever have time for their man? Or their families?
The beauty here is that Polish women are the embodiment of natural beauty and charm. Being ‘high maintenance’ isn’t something you worry about with polish beauty. Now if you were in, say, Russia, it might be a different story. If you are trying to marry a Russian model, then yes, you may have to decide between looks and maintenance. But with Polish women, more than maybe any other major Slavic country, it is unlikely to be an issue.
In fact, the average Polish woman spends more time with her family than with any other group of people at any one time. Nothing is important to the Poles as close friends and family. Keep this in mind if you plan to take her back to America. She may want to make frequent trips home to see her first family.
Most of Poland is pretty religious, having roots in Roman Catholicism. The women are relatively traditional as a result and hold onto family values. The woman is traditionally expected to be the glue that holds the family together. The man is expected to be the provider.
That said, they tend not to settle down into their role too early in life. Remember how they are really active for the better part of the day? This time is spent in school, expanding their knowledge. Or improving themselves – the gym, with friends, etc.
They tend to get married after they are done with their studies, after college. Usually end up with around two children on average. Getting married right after secondary school is not that rare an occurrence.
City girls vs. country girls
Women that live in the countryside usually live with their parents, helping with work at home while they aren’t doing much else.
Those that live in the bigger cities usually have better education and live on their own, but often make time to visit back home. Even countryside girls usually have a respectable level of education.
Looking at them, one might think them reserved and hard to approach, but they are warm and pretty easy to talk to. Don’t let your fears get the better of you. A couple of home runs and you won’t be scated to swing at every ball that takes your fancy.
So, do Polish women make great wives? A conclusion
Unequivocally, yes. They are clever, independent women who know how to strike a balance between their personal lives and maintaining their family. It’s a rare skill, especially for a woman with her own career, to possess.
They are more prone to burnout, however, so you need to be supportive of what she chooses to do. Take her someplace nice on weekends or spend time with her on her days off to relieve some stress.
Polish culture is also quite welcoming. Poles are known for being naturally kind and friendly to nearly everyone, something that really sets them apart from the kind of relative cold-heartedness that’s been ascribed to Russians, for instance.
The only thing is that Polish girls aren’t ever in a hurry to get married. It’s a lot better to take the whole dating game slowly before you propose to her. If you really enjoy each other’s company, just keep hanging out and one thing will lead to another. Before you know it, everything will have fallen into place.
It’s already been stated before that there’s nothing she will appreciate as much as you showing you made an effort to learn her language and culture. Keep in mind that there’s a great chance she will be able to speak and understand English to some extent, however.
In Poland, it’s mandatory to learn at least one foreign language while in elementary school and at least two while in high school. A lot of the people start learning foreign languages while still in kindergarten.
They usually start with English, which the Poles consider pretty easy to teach kids, and, later on, add another modern language. The most common are German, Spanish and French.
Even if she’s not fluent, most decent dating sites usually have a translation feature or the other. They are not perfect. Slavic languages are especially hard to translate to and from. But they should do a decent job of helping you understand her and vice versa.
Sweet, fun, and loving, Polish women are a combination of the best aspects of femininity. Getting into a relationship with a Polish girl is one of life’s ultimate experiences.
Almost every single one of them I have ever dated were amazing and were completely open to dating a foreign man. Though they can be found anywhere in the world – Polish women really love to travel – your best chances of actually finding one would be inside Poland itself.
Don’t wait around too much, though. The world is globalizing fast and one day, those traditional and awesome Polish girls may just have changed while we weren’t looking!
