As I mentioned in my previous post, Polish men have a very aggressive way of flirting. However, I must say that this is most likely due to the fact that they do it while they are at the party, when alcohol levels are high and influence their manners. That is why today I am going to write to you about their behavior, according to my own experience, so that the girls who are coming to Lodz are prepared.
In Lodz, you will probably find the typical guy whose prototype is unattractive, with a shaved head and the famous crease on his neck at the back. They usually have a stare, a straight face, a little friendly and a little tanned face. For some reason, they always wear sports pants. The only time they change into jeans is to try to dress better when they go out. However, they don’t really care about changing the sweatshirt (which they believe gives a “badass” touch) and sneakers (usually Puma shoes) that were fashionable a few years ago. They only wear jackets when temperatures drop below 0 degrees. Most of the time, you’ll see them wearing thin denim jackets, which is definitely not appropriate for the freezing temperatures in Lodz. Of course, they need to maintain the image of a strong man as physically as possible.
Most are muscular, truly muscular. The type of muscle that is gained through protein supplements, or even more radical, anabolic and steroid… which leaves you staring at a bloated guy. It is really true that it is what is preferred in terms of aesthetics in Lodz.
Now that you can already imagine what we are dealing with, let me explain to you why I consider the Poles’ flirtation methods to be somewhat aggressive:
Accompanied by the fact that your waist is close to it, you are more than disgusted by your sweaty, sticky body and realize that the only way to get rid of it is by being unpleasant. You walk away abruptly and shout something that he can understand and possibly very rude (put some word / adjective or gesture here that will do the job). If you’re lucky, he’ll look for another victim. However, this is hardly the case and things can get even more complicated.
Conclusion: I would like to clarify my position by saying that this is my general perception about Polish men. However, based on my personal experience, I would say that there is still a little bit of experimentation for us: Around 1 in 10 men is cool, physically and conventionally attractive and not bloated on a supplement diet, wearing clothes he really planned in putting them on (like a shirt, a black coat and a boot bar). Your face will be gentle, your gaze will be smooth and you will have a beautiful smile. This very rare Polish guy will come to you for a drink or a dance. After that, it is up to you to accept or decline your offer. And, in case you refuse, it will simply withdraw in silence without causing furtiveness. However, in my opinion, if a Polish guy approaches you this way, you might not want to reject him in one. In my opinion, having a conversation and drinking won’t hurt as long as you make it clear what you’ve been looking for from the start and set the necessary limits. If things get weird or uncomfortable, you can always go back to your friends. But that doesn’t stop you from meeting the cute Polish guy.
As you can see, things get pretty complex when you combine ingredients like Polish men, alcohol and your disastrous flirting skills. However, remember that what matters is that you feel comfortable talking and meeting the people you care about. Another important thing to remember is that, even if this particular post is about Polish men, there are several other men who are part of the Erasmus program in your City that you can spend time with, learning all about their cultures. You can even get carried away by the accent of that cute Italian with long hair and a trimmed beard for three days, or dance with the Portuguese guy who has excellent dancing skills and knows exactly how to guide you. That’s how we like it.
