Updated on February 25th, 2019

Polish women are known to be quite pleasant, and not often will you face a very harsh blowout as you would often times come across as in other Western countries. Although this may be seen as an advantage by some, it can make it difficult to truly gauge her interest levels in you when she puts her number into your phone, though may never reply back to you thereafter again.

KrakowWroclaw,  Poznan and even the mid-sized and smaller Polish cities all offer a large selection of solid, good quality women with whom are worth to enter into relationships. Polish women on average are quite feminine and are known to offer a very laid back and easy-going vibe. They are compassionate, low on the drama scale and enjoy a good time.

The general population of Poland has quite a good command of the English language, and Polish women will be able to hold at least an intermediate conversation with you in most cases. Command of the Polish language, as in almost all cases, provides a large DHV and provides access to the upper echelon of quality the country of Poland has to offer.

The Looks of Polish women

The country of Poland is a quite homogeneous country, and the women all have a similar appearance and fall into a few different looks when it comes to facial features. There are plenty of blondes and brunettes, and even some red-heads to be had in Poland, and women overall are quite well endowed in their chest and behinds. Women in Poland certainly have more curves than their counterparts in Ukraine, Romania, Russia or even Slovakia. If you prefer very skinny women with fewer curves, Poland might not be the place for you, as on average the women have a pretty solid figure.

Polish women overall are attractive, and you’ll see a wide range of women that fall into the 6 and 7 range. You will not often see a stunner or a ton of women who could be rated 8+ above and up. Nonetheless, Polish women can be simply described as “cute” rather than “sexy.”

Warsaw and Krakow have the largest amount of choices due to university and women working in larger cities for a better wage, so if it’s your first visit, here’s a good place to start. You’ll see a wide selection of cute women, and also many Ukrainians and Belarusians to compare with and see what you really like.

The personalities of Polish women

Described in three words; easy-going, kind and caring. The women of Poland are known for their kind and open attitudes, as the country is one of the easiest when it comes to meeting girls and not facing harsh rejections. It’s pretty rare to get a harsh blowout during day-game, or even during nightgame.

One one hand, this is great as the women are open and friendly, but sometimes you’re not certain if they really are sincere when they give their number and agree to meet once again. You might just have a flake on your hand or a no response. The girls are simply often times too kind to reject your approach. Normally, you can see it in her eyes and interactions if she’s really feeling you within the first 1-2 minutes.

Polish women are kind and easy-going, and are a lot more predictable than Russian women, for example. They generally strive to provide somewhat for a family, but they expect a man to step up and contribute the most. Sometimes you’ll have to “turn the house” upside down and put her in place, but if you hold control this will normally fix things quite quickly and she will abide. You shouldn’t expect too many fights, or even for her to be overly passionate in most cases, and that’s why they’re said to be quite easy-going once they’re in a relationship with a man.

Attitudes on Sex

Overall, the majority of women have a pretty liberal attitude when it comes to sex. One-night stands do occur from night venues, but overall it takes 2-3 dates (at the latest) to expect that sex will be an option. Overall, Polish women are quite open to sex and it can occur even quicker if she really likes you.

If you want to form a longer-relationship, it’s best just to wait until the third date or even longer, and she will know what’s coming. Polish women’s attitudes on sex can be really defined as quite open, and they’re generally open to learning new things from their partner.

In terms of dating, the majority of girls in a longer-term relationship will often time take birth control as a contraception method which is quite the treat as well. Don’t expect a majority of women that you meet and are not in a relationship with to be using any type of birth control until you’ve locked them down.

How Polish women compare with other European women

Polish women compare favorably with other European women, based on their cute appearances and pleasant dispositions. Related to other European women, Polish women generally are:

  • More beautiful then German women. They dress more feminine and take their appearance more seriously than their neighbors to the west.
  • Less attractive than Russian women, but more relatable. There are less language and cultural barriers that interfere with developing a connection.
  • About equal to the looks of Romanian women. Comparing Poland and Romania, the average Polish girl is cuter. However, the top-end Romanian girl is hotter. Net, it is a draw.
  • Slightly less attractive than Belarusian women, although it is close. Belarusian women are also more difficult to bed, with larger language and cultural considerations.
  • About on par with Czech women, but more friendly and polite.
  • Less attractive than Ukrainian women on a whole. However, in assessing the body types between the two, it comes down to preference. Polish women are curvier with larger breasts and butts. Ukrainian women are more slender and fragile.

Online dating in Poland

Online dating is not as big in Poland as it is in other Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Russia. Tinder and Badoo have mild levels of popularity but have not gained strong traction. With limited online dating, International Cupid offers foreigners a viable way of meeting Polish women online. There will not be a ton of Polish girls using dating apps, but the ones on International Cupid are more serious about meeting men in person than on other apps like Tinder.

If you are traveling to other countries besides Poland, International Cupid is also a great dating app tool to use for this purpose. It has thousands of profiles of women throughout the world, including a high concentration in Eastern Europe. International Cupid is a great tool to use in Poland and wherever the next adventure takes you.

Daygame in Poland

Meeting women during the day in Poland is a great tool to have in your arsenal. Cities like Wroclaw and Krakow are ideally designed logistically with a “Ryneck” or center for approaching. Furthermore, Polish girls are very receptive to being approached by cool foreigners during the day.

There are few harsh blowouts in Poland, even in the girls is not interested. I also recommended Poland as a destination for the novice Daygamer. The ideal logistical layout combined with friendly, relaxed girls creates a perfect environment for novice Daygamer to hone this craft.

Nighgame in Poland

Nightgame is a perfect complement to meeting women in the day. Unlike Romanian women, Polish girls are just as friendly and approachable at night as they are during the daytime. One-night-stands are also more acceptable in Poland as they are in most of Eastern Europe.

Polish women like to drink, dance, and have fun at nightclubs. There are a few points to consider when running nightgame in Poland:

  • Polish guys will interfere. Local men tend to drink heavily. Nothing pisses them off more than a foreign man swooping in on their girls. Their jealousy combined with intoxication can create confrontational behaviors. Be cautious and watch your back. It is best to hit nightlife venues with a wing for back-up.
  • Krakow in the summer is flooded with male tourists. The influx of tourism disrupts the girl to guy ratios in clubs. Consider visiting Krakow in the off-season for better ratios.
  • Wroclaw is a great student population. When university is in session, it is possible to hit bars and clubs 7 days a week. This is the perfect destination for men who focus in on nightgame.
  • Warsaw has the best concentration of young professional women out of any Polish city. Being the capital city, there are also more upscale and sophisticated venues to choose from. Older players will fare better in Warsaw with the mid to late 20s crowd.

My experience

Considering I am one of the younger writers for The Masculine Traveler, I have been in a unique position to share my experiences in Poland from the perspective of a man in his 20s. Poland captured my interest about 4 years ago on my maiden trip to Wroclaw. Shortly after this trip, I decided to base myself in Poland for the past few years. I have lived in all the major cities (Warsaw, Wroclaw, Poznan, and Krakow), as well as, spending considerable time exploring the provinces.

A significant portion of this time was spent in a long-term relationship with a Polish woman. This experience provided me with a unique insight into the mindset of a Polish woman and the keys to her affection. Prior to this relationship, I enjoyed the company of many Polish women. This is the first European country I lived in.

Poland has a unique combination of western comfort and Eastern European culture. The learning curve for understanding its women isn’t as sharp as in Russia, for example. Poland represents a great place for younger men who are in the beginning of their international dating and travel experience. It is a country ideally suited for men who are interested in racking up notches as well as, for those more long-term minded.

Dating Tips for Polish Women

Polish women are overall quite loyal and have a lot of characteristics that make them desirable for a long-term relationship.  The following are a blueprint of the biggest tips to keep in mind for dating Polish women:

1. Polish women are not interested in materialism

Polish women simply are not materialistic creatures. They are often times quite happy with small, meaningful gifts, not requiring you to spend tons of money on buying them the newest purses and jewelry for their birthdays. If they see you going to spend what they would consider a large amount of money on a fancy restaurant, or other items, they might question such an action and it’s a necessity rather than letting you move forward. They often times can be quite thrifty themselves, while at the same time not being over the top.

Unlike what you will find in countries such as Ukraine, Belarus and even Russia where girls will blatantly ask you to buy them gifts prior to or after a first date, Polish women will never resort to such tactics. In Poland, it’s extremely rare to encounter such advances by Polish women. As one would imagine, this is an immediate red flag, and if you’re looking for an LTR, completely drop all contact with the subject at hand.

Girls still like to dress in some of the newest styles, but they certainly don’t always go for the newest latest and greatest luxury items — similar to what you would find when visiting places such as Kiev, and Moscow.

Bottom line – you’re not going to woo her in most cases with a fat wallet, and a trip to the most luxury restaurant in town.

2. Always be the leader with a Polish woman

Polish women are looking for someone who has a grasp on their life and that knows what they want. You always need to be leading, when you are with a Polish woman and making all decisions whether that comes to the dinner spot you’ll be going to in the evening or longer-term plans such and moving or taking a vacation.

Although they might seem to like the occasional allusion that they have some decision making authority in the relationship, all control remains within the man’s hands and you should remember this when you are projecting your outwards persona.

Polish women expect you to be a man and always be at the forefront of the decision making process. Always take control, and lead all interactions — whether small or big.

3. Be ready to manage expectations of having a family as the relationship progresses

In general, Polish women are quite traditional and the majority of them do begin to think about and would like to have a family in their future. As your relationship grows you can expect this conversation to come up, as it’s most likely already being talked about inside of her family, from not only her parents but also her relatives and siblings.

Slavic women start to feel high pressure as they begin to become older and start to creep towards the 25-year-old age mark. A high majority of her peers and friends will most likely already be married by this age mark, and many already have started to have their owns kids and families with their partners.

If this is something you are not interested in and are looking on the shorter end, do consider those girls in the younger age ranges who are still in university and have not yet excited in order to enter the workforce.

Polish women do yearn to find a partner with whom they can start a family, and it will be quite unusual to find a girl who doesn’t one day want to have offspring of her own.

4. Display knowledge of her culture, especially the language

Poles are extremely proud of their culture and love to talk about it. Not only are they proud, but they are quite knowledgeable about their own history and facts about their country, due to their strong upbringing. Knowing a bit about their history, and information about some of the larger cities will go a long way in your interactions with Polish women.

Although Polish women have a great command of the English language in most cases, knowing more than a few words of Polish will be an extremely high DHV, as the language is considered one of the most difficult ones to learn in the world.

If you have the ability to hold a conversation with her in her native tongue — expect to really differentiate yourself from the other foreigners who have tried to make their way into her pants.

5. Older men will have a tougher time dating younger in Poland

Polish women generally prefer to date men similar to their age range. If a girl is in her early 20’s, she will also expect her partner to be a similar age. It’s not common to find women in their early 20’s dating men in their 30’s or older. If you’re in this age range, you’ll most likely have some success dating from the 25-30 age bracket, but younger women 18-24 are going to be tough to tap into for a longer term relationship.

Generally, guys are in their early to mid-20s are going to have the most success in Poland with the cream of the crop talent that the country has to offer. Poland really is not a place for older men, and if that’s you, you should be considering countries like Ukraine, Romania or Russia.

6. Expect them to be feminine

In comparison to the women of Western Europe, Polish women are much more feminine than their other European counterparts. They’re not as feminine as the women you’ll find in the Eastern European countries such as Ukraine or Russia, but they’re a solid mix of both feminine but yet also a bit westernized.

Polish women generally except traditional family values, but at the same time, many also work and expect to contribute to the household as well in terms of monetary means. They will do some of the housework overall but are not going to be doing every single thing like ironing all of your shirts, doing laundry every day and constantly cooking. She will also expect you to be taking care of some of these items are helping her as well.

It’s not an uncommon sight to take out your Polish girlfriend and she will dress and doll herself up. Expect her always to wear makeup, and she will be up on the latest trends. She normally won’t be chasing designer brands like their Russian counterparts (remember, materialistic) but she will be wearing all of the latest styles you’ll find at all of the mall’s big brands.

Don’t expect her to wear high heels to the grocery store or while just running around the city, but she will know how to doll herself up right when the occasion is right. Whatever she can do to look good for herself and to attract men, she will do, just not over-the-top.

7. Feminine, yet not overly sexy in their style and dress

Special occasions and holidays you’ll have dresses wearing their best dresses and high heels while spending time with you and her family. But for day-to-day visits to university or around-the-town errands, Polish women are not strutting around in revealing outfits with 6-inch high heels.

This is simply not part of their style, and they’re certainly more conservative in dress compared to their Eastern European counterparts. You’ll see a big difference if you go out for example on the streets of Moscow vs. Krakow when you compare the dress of Polish women to Russian (and ignore the Ukrainians around the city, who also tend to dress racier).

In Russia, you’ll find women wearing furs paired with skirts and dresses, regardless of the temperature. In Poland, the dress is a lot more moderate with a lot of jeans paired with boots. Stylish, and well-kept overall, but not overly sexy.

8. Holidays are important and meant for family

Once you date a Polish woman, you’ll quickly learn that holidays are a huge deal for her. You’ll be visiting her family for a few days, or even longer, eating and drinking yourself to a coma. A girl with a good upbringing is always going to want to be home and around her family for all holidays. Don’t expect her to have any desire to fly for Christmas to visit you in your home country, because holidays with the family is her #1 priority.

If you want to have success in a long-term relationship with a Polish woman, you need to attend these events, bond with her family and show that you’re interested in Polish customs and traditions related with these events. Luckily, most Polish families are very hospitable. The tradition that Polish families always leave one place open at the dinner table during Christmas in case a guest will visit unexpectedly shows this holds true.

9. Polish women tend to be open to dating foreigners

Most women in Poland have a great command of the English language, and many also study romantic languages such as Spanish or Italian. Polish women are generally very open to meeting foreign men, even if Polish guys have really stepped up their game in the past 5-7 years.

Some women wish for a better life and higher earnings in another country abroad (there are tons of Polish people who have relocated all over the world), and some simply want some adventure and freshness that they can’t find in local Polish men. Whether a big or smaller city, you’ll always find a handful of women who are open to interacting with a foreigner and getting to know you better. The women are certainly less skeptical too, and won’t run you down with shit tests as you’ll find in Ukraine or even sometimes in Russia.

Men from a variety of countries do well in Poland. As with most Eastern European women, Poles have some racist attitudes. Similar to Germany, there is a growing popularity of the white supremacy movement. While this movement is present, it attracts a very small minority of followers. For the most part, Polish girls are generally open-minded with respect to dating men from other races and ethnic backgrounds. Italian and Spanish men seen to be in vogue currently.

Overall, Polish women resemble Scandinavian women more than Russian women in their attitude on dating outside their race. Along with the Czech Republic, Asian men tend to have their best results in Poland. Men from Middle Eastern and Indian backgrounds also do quite well. I met a man of Indian background a few years ago who was killing it with Daygame in Poland.

10. They like romantics and a man who knows how to take care of them

You’ll always need to be getting your girlfriend flowers on big days, such as her birthday, woman’s day, and even other holidays throughout the year. Polish women love to be surprised with gifts and romantic gestures, and if you’re lacking in this she will certainly drop a subtle hint.

You should focus on continually treating her to romantic occasions, even when it’s not a big event. This goes a long way, and the women will truly appreciate it and set you apart from their past partners.

11. Poland is usually held close to her heart

Even though tons of Poles live abroad, they love their country and always cheer for it during national sporting events. Most Polish women will hold their country close to heart and will be very proud to be from Poland. Again, this point circles back around on how important it is to be open to learning about Polish culture, history, and traditions. If you want a long-term relationship and you’re living in Poland, it’s simply a must to have success.

No country is perfect, and Poland has its own problems, which she will often most likely complain about. Nonetheless, she will still in most cases hold it as the number one place in the world, always showing her pride.

Closing Thoughts

Sweet, fun and feminine is a great combination that the majority of Polish girls offer once you’re in a relationship with them. Poland offers a great selection of good quality women, who are open to relationships with foreigners and will treat you properly. If you’re looking for a developed country to settle down in within Europe that has low costs, and cute women, Poland certainly ranks as one of the best options.

Polish women can be found throughout the world, as they often relocate in order to work in other countries, but the best you will find for LTR material will be inside of Poland itself. Large cities such as Krakow and Warsaw offer a large amount of both university students and young professionals who are looking to meet and date foreign men that are living long term within Poland.

The women overall remain quite feminine, yet are becoming more-and-more Westernized on their actions and dress. For many men, this is an advantage as it’s easier to connect with the women while still finding a good mix of characteristics that suit their liking. In terms of Central European countries, Poland is arguably within the top three spots for cute women who are fun to be around and that are open to new adventures and interactions with foreign men.

With an understanding of how they think and work, and while being open to learning about Polish culture, language, age and traditions, and you’ll be set to do well in a long-term relationship with most Polish women.

This is so objectifying what is wrong with you? You are completely sick. Damn, not only is it sad that you are giving out tips for Polish women but especially that you are stereotyping them. Jesus Christ.

As a polish woman… I’m disgusted. The part about us expecting the man to hold the reins in a relationship, making all decisions and giving the women only an illusion of decision making is full of shit. How could u ever be in a meaningful relationship with such an approach? This is sad… If a woman is kind enough to let you make decisions you have to give her space to do the same.. Only then people help each other grow and create a true bond based on mutual respect.
You suck.

Polish girl,

We are agree that mutual respect is a cornerstone of any relationship. In our experience, many women of Poland expect men to take a logical approach to making decision. This does not mean in any way, that we consider women to be lesser than men. Perhaps you take a different approach. Polish women bring a lot to the table with their personalities, intelligence and family orientation. Their contribution to relationships is well covered in the article.

Hello from the Other Side February 24, 2020 - 7:36 AM

Claiming that you don’t think your article even hints at the idea of male superiority or women being lesser than men, despite the objectifying and stereotypical tone throughout, is like listing the races of professional sports players and then comparing that to their athletic success. It’s not acceptable, it’s not okay, and claiming after-the-fact that you “in no way” think that race makes an athlete better or worse does a shipshop of hiding your true intentions and is a worthless apology. If you want to apologize, try using the keywords “apology” and “sorry.”

Also, saying “in our experience” means literally nothing if your experience is limited and lacking. Don’t draw global conclusions and overarching stereotypes if you’re basing it off of incomplete evidence–and only one person’s experience will ALWAYS be considered incomplete experience in this context. Mature up and have a little respect for recognizing what you don’t know. You can’t just justify and excuse your offensive statements away by claiming a “difference of experience,” especially without (legitimate) supporting evidence.

Finally, if you believe that mutual respect is a cornerstone of any relationship, like you just said, then ducking talk about it in your article, instead of this bull about how to get tail through methods such as lying about your true age.

Thank you for the comment. We concur that this of course, is not a hard science, rather predicated on experience. We have never asserted than men are superior.If you are upset that we describe physical traits (generally) than welcome to the real world. Men and women do the same in assessing physical attractiveness. With that said, the meat of this article discusses internal and cultural traits of Polish women, typically in a positive light. The author expressed how Polish women make good partners.

Half Polish Half American = Double Offended February 24, 2020 - 5:28 AM

What the f—…This is article is sexist and insulting to women everywhere. “Polish women are easier to bed…” Who even says this anymore?!?! This is an antiquated and objectifying way to look at women. I know that people are interested about dating–as a girl I’d appreciate a couple quick bullet points about romantic prospects while traveling, but the fact that this article was written with so many specifics and so in depth is concerning. The part where women’s bodies of different cultures are not only COMPARED to each other, but also RANKED on a scale of 1-10?? I can’t say it enough–wtfff????? Why did this need to be written and what author and editor thought that this was acceptable. This article is the opposite of respect and adopts the totally wrong tone. The author is lucky that this didn’t go viral (things have gone viral for less), as the offensive and crass tone of the article would have surely ruined his writing career. Never mind his assumption that living in a foreign culture and dating ONE person for “2-3” years constitutes an expert. I’m also in my 20’s and even I’m mature enough to know that it takes DECADES (like, multiple decades) to be even considered a reliable source of another country’s culture. And as a Westerner in a VERY different Eastern European culture, you should realize that you’ll never be the kind of resource with the knowledge to write in depth about this topic. This is going to be hard for you to hear as a white male–but you just weren’t born into it. This isn’t a privilege you have.

Sir, go take a hard think about how close of a call this was and what would have been a more appropriate way to go about this topic, please. And while you’re at it, think about how you’d feel if someone wrote an article like this about you. I’ll help ya out: “Well, American boys are kind of dumb, they wear too many sweatpants, and are totally tactless. For looks they rank about a 6, maybe a 5. Rarely will you see a swanky drop-dead-gorgeous man in a group of Americans–if you do, leave immediately and buy a lottery ticket. I mean, I guess if you’re drunk and in the mood it could be worth it…maybe… But honestly, girl, don’t waste your time. American boys think everyone in Poland is poor and desperate and they think that, because of this, they’re rich and cool. Actually, they tend to be lazy and and entitled and preoccupied with writing prejudiced articles about how to get laid. They’re fun to play with though, maybe put your number in his phone and see if you’re bored when he texts you, but then of course you’re not gonna keep texting him back once you move onto something better. He’s not an Italian, after all.” (*scoff and chuckle* *cue margaritas that desperate American boy bought*) “They are good for getting free drinks though, just make sure to ditch them later.”

I’m sorry if I offended you; I’m upset if you can’t tell by my tone…but honestly the views you express here have offended me beyond what I have been in years. I thought girls in the 20th century didn’t have to put up with this type of crap anymore, and women’s rights shouldn’t vary based on what country they’re from. Would you talk to an American woman like this? Would you say it to her face? (Obviously not, you’d get slapped, as you hinted at in your first sentence: “You won’t face the same harsh blowout with a Polish woman as you would with a Westerner.”) Then you best not treat a Polish woman like this either.

Thank you for the comment. Men and women discuss physical traits of the opposite gender. Perhaps men are more analytical and linear about it and women are more descriptive.

In your rebuke, you neglected to mention how much the article discusses the pleasant personality and cultural traits of Polish women. You may disagree with the appraisal of Physical attributes, but this was in no way meant to be demeaning. We discuss the internal qualities of Polish women in much more detail than the physical. With that said, this article was an account of one writer’s opinion (a few Years ago).

We have covered Poland travel and dating perspective in other articles. We have often stated that Polish women are well suited for long term relationships and the country itself is very pleasant to visit.

It seems you take exception with one aspect (a generalized description of physical traits).

In any event, we enjoy hearing from female readers. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
