On the other hand, many people I know from Poland would tend to date a Polish man because they share the same culture and know more about it firsthand, than from books, movies, or comments from others; they understand each other better and consequently communicate easier.
One of my friends that is married to a Polish man said, "Guys from other cultures might not know much from my country, its people, experiences, and I am afraid that we might not have much in common that is why I feel that Polish girls tend to stay away from cultures that are too different." Plus, she added, "From my point of view, Polish men have more respect for women and are more romantic and gentle." Perhaps this is why some of the Polish girls might opt for guys who are opposite of their culture.
The high competition makes all approachable and, for many, a foreign boyfriend is still the ultimate accessory, promising travel, money & jealousy from other women (not to be underestimated).
Asking a girl out after just a few minutes of polite conversation is quite sufficient and, if you can demonstrate the courteous, old-fashioned, sponsorship-kind of romance they crave, that date will go swimmingly.
I wish I had the chance to live in at least one modern Western country other than the US to draw some true parallels. I’m not even going to count all the thousands of kids that come in on the Erasmus program or other educational programs to pursue higher education.Not only because of the fact that, according to the saying "opposites attract," but also because a cross-cultural relationship with someone from another country can be very exciting.Another friend said, "Generally, I have always preferred foreign men to men from my own culture.They are mysterious and interesting to learn about."The cultural background, visits to the other country, the language of the country and learning to speak it, the different habits and ways of doing things that people from other cultures have are all very appealing to Polish women.But again, it is a double edged sword because at the end of the day, who cares?Polish women date outside their culture for a number of reasons.
