Poland is a romantic nation and Polish is a romantic language. It is also a Catholic nation which has the ideas of Christian partnership intact. Polish women are perhaps the most romantic on earth so please do not spoil their innocence with words of love that are not from you heart.
I married a girl from Poland, (my other half) and lived there for almost a decade. I am not an expert on Polish romanticism, nor how to woo a woman, however, I know enough about Polish culture to give you some clues. Therefore, if you want to know anything about love and Romance in Eastern Europe let me know. My list of love phrases in Polish ‘for him or her’ is only a start.
If you are using the love quotes on your mobile phone, you can simply copy and paste them right into the text message.
Please leave a comment or question if you need guidance on winning the hand a girl from Polska.

I met a Polish guy and he said he likes me. He use “Lubie cię” and I’m wondering is he actually saying that he likes me as a friend or actually confessing his feeling?
Hard to say without more infomation, but I would have to say Polish guys are reserved. That being said if a guy likes you it will be apparent. A guy has to chase a girl and not leave it to chance. Girls are to chased and won. What else is he like?
I travel to Poland quite often due to my work and for the last few months there has been lets say a connection a bit more than just friends with one of my Polish colleagues. I have travelled back to Poland as a personal trip and stayed at my colleagues/friends house where I met his family and we all had dinner etc. this has happened a couple of times. also we had a few moments of ending up hanging and kissing but every time we start a conversation of what we should do going forward and what we really want from this he is getting very uncomfortable and he is struggling to talk of how he feels. he keeps saying that he needs time as it is difficult for him to express himself. I of course respect that and he knows that, I would never force anything. But I just wanted to ask if it is that normal for Polish men to be that shy and reserved? is it normal that he invited me and stayed at his parents house (he lives with them) and I have dinner with the whole family each time I visit Poland. he is 29 and I am 31. I just wanted an opinion or just share experience.
Polish guys are notoriously shy and reserved. It is a sweetness about the culture. I do not know if it comes from communism or the humility of their high culture which is based on Roman Catholicism. I suspect the latter. Poland was not corrupted by the overt gaudy displays of confidence and hyper consumptive western media telling everyone one to be super self confident. Rather Polish culture, which I know a lot about, is based on humility and gentleness as a virtue. For me it is very refreshing coming the brash West.
I was married to a Polish man for 34 years. We dated from the time I was 15. Polish men are very shy and reserved. But if you win the trust and love of one of them like I did, you will feel like a princess for the rest of your life. We had an amazing relationship, his kindness, loyalty, and love always shined in his eyes. He was the love of my life, lost him to cancer 6 years ago. But the love that was there still remains in my heart. He touched my life in every way. Left his foot print on my heart for life. His children are just like him. Kind, and loving. Good Luck , Rose.
Rose, I have met a Polish man and You took the words right out of my heart. He is so good to me and treats me so tenderly, loving, and kind. He is the love of my life. I am so sorry for your loss, I can not imagine losing my amazing man. We are new but both of us feel mutual about each other. All he wants to do is please me. I keep pinching myself. My heart to you Rose.
Aww this is sooo sweet , I’m glad you met him ❤️
I can not only relate, but completely see why you can see the confusion between both English and Polish, with regards to sharing true feelings. Me and my Polish girlfriend have now been together for three years. She moved here with me in Hertfordshire only a week ago after years of the both of us travelling too and forth to Krakow or to mine at least 15 times. I’m nearly 29 and it’s taken me this far in my life to realise that what I’m looking for is beyond the boarders of the UK. Yes their ways are completely different to ours in may ways to what you and may even find slightly offensive, but once you look and appreciate their direct thoughts and honesty. You start to wonder why we here in Britain are not more like them. Give him the time needed to make him feel comfortable. Personally I think guys are a lot more reserved than girls in Poland but once you have got there you will realise its the best part to ever fall in your life. I certainly finally found what I could ever want and I’ve never looked back. Hope you find the same
As much as I agreed with you so far after reading your blog, both the language and a little bit of the dating section, I strongly disagree with “A guy has to chase a girl and not leave it to chance. Girls are to chased and won.”
All such chase achieves in the end is a cheesy-romantic relationship that is just pretence, that essentially is just an excuse for the woman’s conscience to not feel guilty about being in a casual relationship. You don’t throw big words around every single girl you meet. When the feeling is actually being sincere and reciprocated you do not say generic lines that you read up a few days before on a language/dating advice blog that probably thousands of people out there are saying already. Each sincere relationship you get into deserves a new, different take.
Do not take offence, I take pleasure in this blog, however I do see the dating section as simply a guide for the Westerners to come over to Poland and steal some of our women as wives for themselves. Which I find completely understandable.
If you believe this girl who you are dating is the one, you have to play to win. You have to do everything in your power and intelligence to catch her. It is that simple. Who you marry is the most important choice two people make as unlike with jobs, you can not swap wives. It determines who you have children with and this will echo through out many generations. If the stakes are that high why would you not play the game of love with the same gravity that one searches and applies to ones job daily or more?
There’s a couple of good lines here, however, I don’t know if they are: man saying to woman, or woman saying it to a man. Gender matters, and Google Translate also doesn’t help.
Do you think you could indicate the gender ?
Justin – definitely all the above phrases are men talking to women.
Unless you are in your late 40 and up, I would avoid most. They are a bit 1800s and beyond pretentious. they would make me laugh not swoon.
If you want to impress a Polish girl, don’t call her Easter European. Poland is in Central Europe.
I have yet to meet a Polish girl that does not respond to high culture, at least the ones I would consider dating material. If does not mean you have to talk like your from another century, but to be cool and easy going and stylish, then and if you are able to pull some romantic lines off, you will more than win her heart.
Do not take dating advice from women, if you are trying to win a female’s heart. Take dating advice from men who have done so. Trust me it is like women have a sense of style when looking at other women and men have another. When it comes to dating women can not objectively see their own gender.
My advice is if you want to win a woman, be cool and dress well, then with that coolness have a refinement and eloquence that will turn her world upside down. hearts are one when they elevate the other to a higher level, either spiritual or cultural.
I think a half Polish half American guy might have told me he likes me.
So the thing is, I always thought he was fully American but one day, he was telling me he knew Polish and said he knows how to say “I can speak a little Polish” in Polish. I replied that I used to know another language too but lost the ability to speak it. And I think he might have said “lubie cie” but because I don’t know any Polish and when spoken fast, “lubie” sounds like a bit so I just took it flat and thought he really said what he told me in English.
Now I think about it, no wonder he had a weird expression on his face after saying that.
I’m dating a guy who was born in Poland but his family moved to the states as he started kindergarten. He was raised in a Polish home. I have wondered why, after a little over a year of dating, he has not said he loves me. He doesn’t use cute names for me like baby, or sweetie either even though I do. Is it because Polish men are reserved?
He tells everyone I’m his girlfriend, we spend a lot of time with his family and friends, and he lavishes me with gifts. What should I think?
There are many aspects about Polish culture socially that are slightly different than American culture. One is that Poles do not express feeling freely. I think it would take work on your part if you were married to get him to express this. This can be a positive thing. Polish guys are not throwing around the ‘L’ word to every girl they date, like many Western guys do. If he says it, he really means it. He feels it I am sure it is just that they were brought up at home without displays or communication of affection in the same way. He is good and loyal and loves you but might have trouble expressing it.
Please listen to the Song from “Fiddler on the Rood” called “do you love me”. This is of course Yiddish but it is Eastern European culture with respect to expression.
Alternatively if he was into yoga for instance he would learn expressiveness. You could gently teach him. My wife did, for me, but it does not always work. If he is religious that is a good thing, he has this higher consciousness dwelling within him, he just has to bring it to the surface. You could in a loving gentle patient way, explain it is important to you. We guys do not know this, but for women, they need to here it and makes them secure in a relationship, maybe because of evolution and the need to know the guy will be around in a few years when there are children.
Men feel love just as intense as women. Its the expression is something different, and Polish culture it can be sublimely different. However, Polish literature is all about Romanticism.
I mean come on, Poland is the land of Adam Mickiewicz ,Zygmunt Krasiński , Henryk Rzewuski, and Lucjan Siemieński to name a few.
I am madly in love with a Polish guy, I want him to like me back but it is hard for me to ask if he loves me and it’s hard for me to know how I might get him to love me.
Do you maybe have some tips for me so that I can get noticed by him?
I can already picture myself marrying him but I don’t even know if he loves me or not.
You can simply ask him ‘where do you see this relationship going?’. You can ask him things connected to the family and church and see his reaction. Polish people culturally do not express emotions as readily as other cultures about deep feelings. On the other hand when they do you know it means something.
