If you are looking for a bride that is still exotic but a little more westernized in outlook and disposition then Poland can be an excellent choice. Polish girls have the same kind of attractive blonde good looks that we usually associate with Russian and Ukrainian women.
However culturally they tend to be more westernized than there counterparts to the east. This means that there is usually little culture shock if you bring a woman from Poland to your home country.
It also means that you may be able to arrange a few visits to one another before deciding whether you want to go the marriage route.
Women in Poland have fared better in the education system than their male counterparts. This means that women often hold professional jobs were as males work in more industrial or manual labor positions. It also means that Polish babes tend to speak better English than the males in their country. English by the way is a second language in Poland so a woman with education will be able to speak it and can become fairly fluent in a short space of time once she has moved to the west.
This difference in education levels between men and women is also one of the reasons that many Polish singles are looking towards the west for love. At home there is actually a shortage of males that many polish women would find acceptable. They want a kind and caring husband who is able to make conversation and enjoy some of the nicer things in life.
For men who want a wife that won't appear like a "traditional mail order bride" Poland is an excellent choice.
One reason why many men are attracted to Polish women is because of their reputation as being excellent mothers and wives. They are raised to be polite and dutiful and most manage to live up to these standards.
Poles are mostly Roman Catholics and have a typical Catholic's belief in the sanctity of marriage and the importance of not getting divorced. Provided that you spend a little time getting to know her and you are a dutiful husband a Polish lady can make for an excellent wife for the rest of your life.
It is important to keep in mind that Poland sees itself as part of Europe in a way that Russia and the Ukraine do not. It has been a member state of the European Union since 2004. This means that Polish women have working and travel privileges in any country in Western Europe such as the United Kingdom, France and Germany without the need for a visa.
What this means for you as a foreign man looking to date a Polish women is that she won't be making her decision solely on an economic basis. Poland is in fact the 20th largest economy in the world.
However while the economy may have grown, the average income for most polish workers is still fairly low with an average monthly salary of about $1,290 a month. So, if you have a relatively good salary in your own country you should be able to provide a much nicer life than the one she would have at home.
Also Poland's economy is primarily based on heavy manufacturing and agriculture. This means that the men that she will be used to dating will be often a little rough around the edges if she is not from one of the major cities. With a little bit of charm and gentlemanly manners you should have no trouble sweeping her off her feet.
There are some real advantages to dating a woman from Poland. Firstly visiting her is going to be much easier. There are direct flights to Warsaw the capital city or you can fly to Paris and catch a transfer to Warsaw or take the train. English is fairly widely spoken so you shouldn't have too much trouble getting around and your date may also speak reasonable English as well.
If you hit it off and you live in the United Kingdom there will be no problems in bringing your new love back to your own country. Getting a visa for the United States also tends to be easier for a woman from Poland than from many other countries in Eastern Europe.
This can also be an advantage when it comes time for her family to visit or if she wants to visit her family. Polish people tend to be very family orientated so she will in all likelihood want to seem them reasonably often.
If you do choose to marry you will find that your new Polish bride will usually adapt easier to the United States than women from other poorer countries are likely too. Poland has a history of immigration to America so there are plenty of polish communities and support groups and networks for new polish immigrants. Chicago is often called the second largest Polish city in the world!
You will also find that your Polish bride has had plenty of exposure to western culture through television and the internet. She may even have relatives already living or working in the United States. If you are moving her to the UK then there is an even greater chance that she will already know people or be able to find other polish people to spend time with.
The most important thing to keep in mind that when a Polish woman chooses to date and marry you it will be because she actually loves you. She is not looking for a passport but for love that she has not been able to find at home. Polish women tend to adapt easily to life in the West and so there are fewer cultural barriers for you to overcome if you decide that she is the one you want to spend your life with.
Also Warsaw is a lovely city to visit with a long and storied history and plenty of flights from most major airports. If you are looking for your blonde haired beauty with brains to match then Polish dating might be for you.
Most of the bigger International dating sites generally do not have a ton of Polish girls, because Poland has been much more economically successful than the Ukraine or even Russia since the fall of communism.
However, Polish brides do bear a resemblance to the sexy Russian mail order brides we have in our Russian gallery - so if it's purely the "Polish Look" you are after, why not consider dating a Russian girl.
