This is the definitive list of ‘things to remember’ …at least until I think of the next definitive list.
1 Her name Bear with me, I’m not being (completely) flippant. If you can’t remember your Polish girlfriend’s first name ask her what her second name is. Unfortunately it’s usually just one of the above, but you might get lucky and come across a Jadwiga (if you’ll pardon the expression). Women’s Day This is one of approximately 74 occasions during the year when you are required to give a Polish girlfriend flowers.
And the Russian women who aren’t scam artists can be cold and materialistic (or straight-up gold diggers).
It didn’t take long before men started looking elsewhere in Eastern Europe for beautiful women.
About 90 percent of all women in Poland are named Magda, Ola, Anna, Dorota, or Kasia. Flower-selling is an immensely profitable and stable business in Poland. I’m not even mentioning Valentine’s Day; that’s so obvious that you entirely deserve to lose a testicle if you forget it in Poland. She is a a princess Polish girls are brought up in the tradition of old-fashioned chivalry and deference to the ‘weaker sex.’ That means YOU carry the bags, open the door, mend things, make tea in the morning, escort her to the bus stop etc. Walking is impossible Part of the chivalry thing mentioned above is the expectation that whenever you are walking somewhere together she should have her arm looped through yours.
