7 Things You Should Know About Dating in Korea

Every culture has its unique dating customs, and Korea is definitely no exception. In Korea, dating is all about showing your affection for each other – couple menus, shirts, and sneakers are everywhere, and every month has at least one special, albeit incredibly commercial, day for couples to celebrate. There’s just so much to do and experience if you’re a couple, or at least going on dates, and that’s why everyone is always looking for someone! Naturally, each and every relationship is special and unique, and there’s no guidebook to mastering the “Korean dating style.” But, if you ever find yourself getting ready for a date in Korea, nervous and clueless about what to expect, our list should give you an idea of how dating here works.

1. It’s common for your friend to set you up with someone

When in need of a date, look no further than your Korean friends. It is all about connections, and people commonly set their single friends up with each other. You’re technically going on a blind date, but at least you know (s)he’s not a creep (always a plus) and you should have something in common. In Korea, people rarely meet anyone outside their personal school or work circle unless they’re introduced by a mutual friend. Approaching people on the streets is not as common as in the West, for example, but young adults are generally more open to strangers than their parents’ generation, especially if they have had a drink or two.

2. There are two options: one for everyone, one for couples

Couple rings, shirts, sneakers, pillows, caps, underwear… You name it, Korea probably has it, and people make them look stylish, not tacky. Couples pretty much live in a fascinating parallel world of coupleness, and everyone wants to experience what it’s like to be in it. Most restaurants and cafés have menus designed specifically for couples, major attractions have romantic date packages for two, and movie theaters even offer private couches for an intimate date. For those that are not used to such couple-centric culture, this might all sound puke-inducingly sweet, but once you try everything out yourself, you realize that the couple activities are actually fun and meaningful.

3. Be prepared, and willing, to pay

It can be pretty awkward to decide who’s going to get the bill, especially if it’s your first date. While the status quo used to be that men pay for the first couple of dates (or even all of them), that is quickly changing, and women are no longer afraid to swipe their cards at the cashier. Korean couples rarely split the bill, and it’s usually the guy who gets the movie tickets, and the girl who pays for dinner afterwards. In the end, you end up paying around 50-50 or 60-40, which is what most people feel comfortable with. Some couples use money from their joint bank account for dating costs (like Hong Jong Hyun and Yura on “We Got Married” ), which just makes everything a tad bit more fair and convenient.

4. Keep your phone with you at all times

Forget everything you ever learned about the ‘three day rule.’ Koreans love their smartphones with instant messaging apps and adorable emoticons, and couples will spend hours glued to their phones, chatting with their other half. Don’t be surprised if you get a text from your crush every two hours, asking what you’re doing, eating, or thinking. And remember to text back instantly, or (s)he might understand your silence as a rejection. If you like someone, don’t be afraid to send a message even if you have nothing special to say – it’s just to show that you care.

5. Anniversaries and holidays are a really big deal

Another distinctive characteristic of dating in Korea is the celebration of anniversaries, which take place every hundred days, and not just on an yearly basis. You might have seen K-pop groups and “We Got Married” couples bring out decorative cakes and gifts whenever it’s their 100th, 200th, or 1000th day together, and this is an accurate depiction of what happens in real life as well. Additionally, couples have a unique romantic holiday to celebrate on the 14th of every month. You have the traditional Valentine’s Day and White Day, but also ones like Rose Day, Wine Day, and Kiss Day. Commercial? Undoubtedly, but if you love planning romantic dinners and wrapping gifts in the cutest way possible, then you’re going to enjoy dating in Korea.

6. Hold back on the PDA

Overall, Koreans are not afraid to get touchy with close friends or family, but when it comes to public intimacy between couples, you might want to hide from judging grandmas. It’s totally acceptable to hold hands, hug, and give a gentle kiss on the lips, but try to have your passionate makeout sessions in private. While contemporary Koreans are not exactly conservative, there are still unwritten rules regarding acceptable public display of affection, and anything beyond cute pecks tends to cross the invisible line, especially in bright daylight.

7. There can be a difference between someone you date and someone you marry

It’s not uncommon for Koreans to have two “ideal types”: one you’d like to date, and one you’d like to marry. You might date a pretty girl with a wonderful personality, but if she can’t cook for her life or comes from a financially unstable family, marriage might be ruled out. Similarly, many Koreans are open to dating foreigners, but tend to be much more hesitant about interracial marriage. Naturally, there are numerous couples who unexpectedly fall in love and end up tying the knot, so don’t automatically rule out marriage with your Korean partner. Just remember that traditionally, Koreans see marriage as a union between families – not just two individuals – which means that marriage will eventually require the approval of the Korean family, and not everyone considers this when they jump into a relationship.

We Don t Want No Scrubs! 10 Signs He Is A Loser

A man will go out with and marry a female ,that drives a hoopdee,or catch a bus to her fast food job.A woman especially a sista aint going do this.The man got to be a stock broker,lawyer or other professional.He better have a caddie or something equivalent.Must be 6 foot tall, and educated.No wonder they can t find a date!

There are plenty of black men who will only talk to miss hoopty or miss fast food if she looks like one of the Kardashians or Jenners they will take any income but only thinking about marriage to a very narrow band of LOOKS. Both sides shallow with it. That girl could be the biggest golddigger but he rather profile in front of his boys with her and her 10 tons of weave and makeup than the quiet dark skinned girl with an average simple flatiron style and minimal makeup working on her degree who comes to use the free internet at the same fast food joint please. Both sides love that flashy stuff. Plus some of it is instinct. When a woman has to take time off to have and breastfeed a baby, better believe the man needs to be able to provide. There is no point in the human life cycle, BIOLOGICALLY, that a woman NEEDS to be able to bring home the bacon to keep the family alive. Biology isn t fair. But in the 21st century men like women with money or who look like money may not require as much as women, but the men with plenty to offer are looking for girls that another man will take one look at her and know it took money to get with her, so they can increase their status by the girl they are with. Donald Trump s daughter has a ton of money from daddy and her own income from actual work, and still didn t marry no average income guy. More on top of plenty is how rich and wealthy do it I m not sure why it s even smart these days for a girl to take up broke guys. They are just as liable to cheat as any other type of guy, and have less to bring to the table which should make them MORE faithful, not less.

Women can t find a date cause the men who are on their level are busy trying to social climb to the next one through the girl, or busy in Peter Pan mode enjoying that all the girls who think the guy is a catch can t catch them! if women avoid scrubs they get blamed, if they go give the scrub a chance and end up with kids for a guy who can t afford himself, they get blamed. This is just set up for women to be blamed for men s choices to be or not be relationship material. Most women are fine with a man who has a comfortable vehicle, and the uneducated black men are having NO trouble in America getting dates and MORE whoever keep trying to convince women to just date down and they will get a guy is playing around, those men have girlfriends, maybe even wives, and many have children. 2/3 of the prison population is minority and most of that minority is black. There is going to be a shortage based on this info, especially when something as minor as a traffic ticket you didn t have money to pay for can land you in jail. Black women are too unrealistically picky, but so are black men. Both sides get pretty delusional about this cookie cutter wife/husband material, and most guys want women to meet these wife material standards they have set but are not all interested in marrying the average black woman if anyone at all, and will throw all the high and mighty rules and regulations out the window for their video model type chick! Everybody else has to cook clean wash sew and have a blood type of O and body like whoa all the video vixen has to do is show up!


WOW. i just posted this to my bby father who is most of these..and does not respond for his kids who are now 14 and 9 .he s 41 and his response was I m glad my woman doesnt see me like that, but thanks for showing us It made us both lolnigga plz what DECENT woman is gonna deal with a 41yr old on state handouts and don t respond for his kids. The reason she don t see you like that s because she is a equal math to you therefore you are her everything excuse me i would laugh but i have better things to do with my time like my degree and raising my boys to be nothing like their father byr now ..


excuse my errors ..

Brooke, this is great, I was laughing so hard but it is true. As for the no transportation, if he tells you that he is going through a special situation with his car and his drivers license intrepretation: HE HAS NO CAR OR NO LICENSE. I know a whole slew of scrubs that falls into all those catagories mentioned. But on the other hand, you may be wasting space writing this because there is some women still think they can change him. For some women, he don t have to have a real legal job, just put it down in the bedroom and blow their backs out, smoke weed and watch television all day. Sitting at home at 50 years old still trying to become a rapper. LOL.

Really now most of these men should not get the digits much less the time of day.

I told him that he didn t live there and didn t pay anything there, so
what did he need a key for? He never brought that up again. I don t
pass out house keys.

with other single black, white girls and men in your city. It is

my favorite club for mixed love .

Yes had that problem with man that lived with parents still. What about them broke brothas who flash a small amount of cash or fake a phone call about a big deal coming up. I do massage therapy and about twice a month get a botha who takes calls during session about some big deal brewing. Trying to impress me no doubt. Sometimes they have fake jewelry on as well.

oh HELL NAW. homegirl in the very first picture needs to re-do her damn braids! dang sweetheart! she needs a whoopin for that. you goin on camera and don t even bother to have neisha down the street do your braids over. SMH

oh HELL NAW. homegirl in the very first picture needs to re-do her damn braids! dang sweetheart! she needs a whoopin for that. you goin on camera and don t even bother to have neisha down the street do your braids over. SMH

oh HELL NAW. homegirl in the very first picture needs to re-do her damn braids! dang sweetheart! she needs a whoopin for that. you goin on camera and don t even bother to have neisha down the street do your braids over. SMH

I once had a guy who pretended that his feelings were hurt because I had never offered him a key to my home. I told him that he didn t live there and didn t pay anything there, so what did he need a key for? He never brought that up again. I don t pass out house keys.

Why, so he can be there when you get home from work, eating up all of your food, using your electricity and water? .no ma am.

College Dating Advice: 5 Things Seniors Know that Freshmen Don’t #lonely #hearts

College Dating Advice: 5 Things Seniors Know that Freshmen Don’t

Let’s be honest: dating in college is a lot more complicated than dating in high school. There are new rules, some of which are unspoken and not so obvious. And there are a lot of different types of “dating” to deal with.

Here are 5 things that seniors have learned about college dating; freshmen and freshmen-to-be, take note!

A hookup is typically nothing more than a no-strings-attached agreement

1. Say yes!

When it comes to dating, just say yes! If someone asks you out, it’s a good idea to accept, even if you wouldn’t normally give him or her a chance. Don’t write people off as soon as you meet them. Take a chance and say yes to the girl who’s always reading on the quad. Say yes to the guy who seems quiet and shy.

Opening yourself up to people you wouldn’t typically date or hang out with might surprise you. It’ll give you the chance to meet interesting people – and you’ll definitely go on some memorable dates. Dating beyond your “type” can also lead to new friendships and introduce you to different groups on campus.

2. Have fun – but don’t expect a relationship.

College seniors are well versed in the hook up. Freshmen, however, are usually a bit more reluctant to leave traditional dating behind. When it comes to the definition of dating on college campuses, hooking up is typically much more common. Casual relationships without commitment are what most guys and girls are looking for. It’s all about being free to move on whenever you please.

But be warned: a regular hookup doesn’t mean professing your love for one another is the next step. Girls in particular often expect their hookups to turn into something more – but a hookup is typically nothing more than a no-strings-attached agreement. If you’re looking for a serious relationship, make sure you make that clear from the start .

3. Don’t get involved with a guy (or girl) who’s attached.

It might seem like obvious advice, but getting involved with someone who’s taken is a seriously bad idea. Older guys are notorious for seeking out freshmen girls. Freshman girls often don’t know who’s with who, so sneaky guys can cheat with ease. Getting involved with a guy who has a girlfriend or exclusive relationship can lead to social exile. The girlfriend will find out – and she will get angry. The girlfriend and her friends will brand you with a reputation that might take the next four years to escape.

For guys, it’s an equally bad idea to hook up with another man’s girl. Whether he’s on the football team or not, he’ll come looking for you. It’s better to avoid fistfights and party brawls, so steer clear of any girl that isn’t 100 percent single.

4. Know that long distance relationships are hard.

Long distance relationships aren’t just a college phenomenon. People in all stages of life deal with significant others who are thousands of miles away. But be aware: sometimes long distance relationships just aren’t worth the work. By the time your class reaches its senior year, almost every person who began college in an LDR will have moved on.

Freshmen are often optimistic about turning their high school relationship into a long distance one. Yet seniors know just how difficult it can be to keep things together. Jealousy and trust become huge issues for couples, and miscommunication can quickly turn a conversation into a fight. You’ll feel lonely and depressed more often than not. It can also be hard to really enjoy college with a distant boyfriend or girlfriend weighing on your mind.

5. Avoid dating where you live.

Your dorm might seem like the best place in the world to pick up women (or men)– after all, the dorms are full of hot single girls (or guys.) Unfortunately, jumping into a relationship with someone who lives down the hall is a bad idea. Love seeing the girl two doors down in the bathroom every morning? Think about how awkward it’d be to see her every morning after breaking up with her.

Your freshman dorm is where you’ll meet people who you’ll be friends with for the next four years. Don’t make it your dating headquarters; branch out and choose girls or guys who live in other buildings. You’ll avoid any awkward hallway encounters, and you’ll be able to feel comfortable in your home all year long.

Quick Tips

  • A great place to find a date is in the classroom. Not only will you have something in common with a classmate, but you also have a good excuse to talk to them.
  • Take a break from the campus dating scene every once in awhile. Date people from other schools, or old friends from back home; it’ll give you a chance to broaden your experiences and social circle.
  • Try to avoid spreading rumors about the guys or girls you date. Gossip spreads like wildfire in college, so be careful about kissing and telling.

Dating In College: 5 Things To Know At The Beginning Of Freshman Year

Be Wary Of Falling Too Quickly For Someone

“Because you can feel insecure starting school, the idea of latching onto someone quickly is very appealing,” says Catherine Birndorf, a women’s mental health expert who co-authored The Nine Rooms of Happiness with Lucy Danziger, editor of SELF. “But there’s a sense of false intimacy. You can share your life story in the first 72 hours, and it can feel incredibly intense. There is a wide array of experiences that make up your college life, and if you’re coupled-off, you may limit yourself and miss a lot of campus life.”

Things You Should Know Before Dating An Older Man #seek

#dating older men


Things You Should Know Before Dating An Older Man

I ve got to agree with some of the others. This is not about dating an older man. Seven years? Bah! That is not a big deal if you are compatible and have shared interests in the first place. I know. I married a man more than 15 years my senior and it was a good marriage. No, the biggest problem I had, when I was dating him, was dealing with all the women his age who thought I needed to leave him alone and find someone my own age. In short, let us have a crack at him . Veiled catty statements to actually physically coming between us at social events. I just smiled and kept my mouth shut. He married me and together we had a wonderful life and a beautiful child. Yes, I m a widow now. That is something that can happen when you share a life with an older man. But I wouldn t change a moment.

Wait a minute! Not wanting to go back and redo stuff you ve already done years before, is not the same thing as not wanting to do new stuff. It may be new to you but it isn t new to him. This guy isn t afraid to try new things . He s older than you, and knows (from having been there, done that ) that some of the stuff you want to do is silly and a waste of time.

But, the I like this, but you like that problem may exist in every relationship, and you have to work it out

KB Virgo Tha Realest

I ve dated a man who s 12 years older than me (he lied about his age when we first met). Never again would I ever date an older man. They have trust issues, health problems, set in their ways, treat you like a child instead of a partner the sex is the pits.

Gosh, older men sound boring and cheap thank you for your warnings

44 is what you consider old. that makes me laugh .I thought this was about an OLDER man, not someone barely started in his career. the points are good and really not just for when with an OLD man. It s good for ANY time in life!

I just got out of a 3 year relationship with an older man (We ve had so many break ups to make ups, Im pretty much over the making up and getting back together part), and there were some really good things about it, but at the same time older men could be annoying lol Depending on the age difference or individuals, u could be in 2 different places in your lives..

how about the obvious. don t get with someone you re not compatible with. you shouldn t have to compromise yourself and pretend to like things. smh has nothing to do with age, but everything to do with love and compatibility. you can have more in common with someone older than someone your own age. that s my experience.

This is my current situation. Nov 23th we ll be celebrating 6 years together♥. We still have so much fun together! I wanted a childless man, cause I know these psycho baby mamas can be a headache lol. He has 2 children. I have an amicable / cool relationship with his son. Maybe the baby mama still loves my man, cause she has done some crazy things ( a jealous woman of course. I understand that) to separate us. Her crazy things have made our relationship stronger. I have to thank her for that lol. He s my man and my bro (good friend). He treats me like a queen. I ve learned so much from him. He taught me how to cook. I watch Jamie Oliver show. I am a great cook now! I love cooking!

On the DON’T MAKE HIM FEEL TOO OLD, OR MAKE YOURSELF LOOK TOO YOUNG . I m 26 and I dress my age. I m a fresh girl. People think I m 19-20. Maybe cause I m short. I hate heavy make up. I only use eyeliner and lipstick. My man is 46 (I didn t know his age when we started dating) and people think he s in his 20s. My friend even asks me if he s studying at my university (that time I didn t tell her my man s age) lol. I say: Do you! If you re in your 20s, you don t have to dress up like a lady of 30. I m a fresh simple girl. What you see is what you get.

Just out of curiousity, who is considerd an older man ? Because women are mentioning men 7 years older than them. I always thought an older man was a man that was 15 plus years older, like old enough to be your father type of older lol

Great topic i ve been dating a man 7 years older than me for 4 years, and I can agree with a couple of the pages, only thing is since he s less than 10 years older than me pop culture nostalgia is pretty similar for us plus he didn t really watch tv in the 90 s so I got more memories than him in that aspect age is nothing but a number maturity and immaturity knows no age

I really needed to read this article. I just recently started dating an older man(he s 35, I m 28) and I m starting to see some of the differences as opposed to dating someone closer to my age. It s nothing bad, just things that I m not used to, for example he s very open and honest with his feelings for me and sometimes it s a little hard to process since I m used to dealing with guys that don t tell anyone how they feel, but it s refreshing to be able to be real with someone without playing games to keep them interested. It s a new experience I m enjoying so far.

I wouldn t consider that to be an older guy. 10 years or more is an older guy.

If the guy is open with his feelings, that is what you want. You are just used to guys who are playing you. That s a good thing,

Is it just me? I feel like this article is a personal essay. Some things are way too specific like the guy being 44 years old and how she does things to make a good impression like cooking elaborate meals, pretending to enjoy baseball and agreeing to watch old war movies. I sense that this girl is venting and needs to break up with her boo especially if all he wants to do is sit at home and eat rice. LOL Old or not, that s just lazy and he s just not that into you. My parents have been married 30 years and you bet yo a** my father does not sit at home and eat rice.


Come again? Don t make yourself look too young? Ummm maybe it is because YOU ARE. Don t make him feel old? Seriously. Tell those cradle robbers to go date someone their own age if this is a concern. SMDH! Stupid article. Who wants a Dinosaur? Young women like youth too!

Who wants a Dinosaur? lololol
Although funny and true in many cases, this has to be one of the more ageist statements I ve seen in quite some time.
Still funny shyt though.

great topics you think of, this is my current situation so far has been life changing, not for everyone like you said but a thumbs up for me.

12 Things You Should Know Before Dating an Older Guy #a #dating #site

12 Things You Should Know Before Dating an Older Guy

1. We don’t want to go to your friend’s rave. It’s not like a guy who’s five years older than you is going to be taking you out for the Denny’s early bird special ever day before promptly going to bed, but odds are those 5 a.m. weeknight benders are behind us.

2. Maybe just one shot of whiskey instead of seven of vodka. We can still drink people under the table, we just don’t want to do it at some crappy, crowded dive bar. We can pay more than $1 for drafts. We don’t want to be shoving our way through a bunch of sweaty people to get them.

Advertisement – Continue Reading Below

3. You’re going to hear stories about “the old days” and wonder why we aren’t as fun anymore. You missed our wild days and we’re settled down now. Don’t try and get us to do acid again just because you want to see if we can recreate the time we went to Bonnaroo 10 years ago.

4. We’re not always super mature. “Older” doesn’t necessarily mean we’re going to stop watching cartoons or laughing at fart jokes. Some things are timeless.

5. We’re past the whole random hookups stage. If we’re in a relationship, we’re really into it. None of this little-boy, screwing-around shit.

6. We know what we want out of life, and we’re probably not going to change it. All right, so no one knows what they really want, but we’ve got a job, if not a career, and some money saved up, because we already did that thing where you spend all your money and then have no money.

7. We’ve learned a lot from our previous relationships. Yeah, we might also have emotional baggage, but the more time we’ve had to date around, the more we know what we like and (hopefully) how to avoid making the same mistakes we made previously.

8. We age like fine wine. I’m told we get hotter with age. Salt-and-pepper hair is apparently a big deal. Until we hit, like, 90. There are no hot 90-year-old men.

9. Just accept our tax wisdom. Do you need help setting up automatic bill pay or your 401(k)? We’ve got you covered.

10. We might still have some exes in our life. It’s bound to happen. Any decently nice guy accumulates ex-girlfriend friends. Don’t worry about it; we’re not into them anymore. We’re into you.

11. We can be a bit stubborn. We’ve picked up a lot of habits (some bad and some good), but you’re not about to change them. You can’t teach an old dog not to eat a bag of potato chips right before bed, as they say.

12. We’re better in bed. This isn’t our first time at the vagina rodeo, if you know what I mean. We know what works and what doesn’t.

Everything You Need to Know about Polish Dating

For a long time, Russian dating has been incredibly popular, with some men going so far as to spend vast amounts of money to import their own Russian brides. While Russian women certainly are beautiful, feminine, and nurturing, the Russian dating scene is overrun by scam artists who are really good at taking lonely men for their last dollar. And the Russian women who aren’t scam artists can be cold and materialistic (or straight-up gold diggers). It didn’t take long before men started looking elsewhere in Eastern Europe for beautiful women. As they did, the trend has shifted to Polish dating.

Important Facts about Polish Dating

Forget that nonsense about “only love matters.” Yes, love can theoretically conquer all – but culture matters when dating. Before you enter the world of Polish dating, you better be aware of some of the basics of Polish culture. Otherwise, you might be in for a big surprise or make a complete moron of yourself in front of your new Polish girlfriend.

1. Polish Girls Are Known for Being Sexy and Classy

Urban Dictionary defines polish girl as a “Smart, pretty, faithful, horny girl who has big boobs and a nice ass but is not a whore. She s a Lady in the streets and a Freak in the bed.” Anyone who has dated a polish girl would probably agree with this definition!

Polish women are considered amongst the most beautiful women in the world. They’ve been described as “Angels on Earth” and “Aphrodite of the Vistula”. On the website BeautifulPeople.com, 39% of Polish women got a favorable rating – making Poland #7 in the world (Scandinavians rank as #1). If you are the type of guy who loves big breasts, you will be in heaven in Poland. Polish girls tend to have very curvy bodies but without being overweight.

2. Poland is a Conservative Country – But the Girls Are Struggling to Break Free

As a country, Poland is very conservative. The Catholic Church dominates and politics lean to the very far right. One recent poll found that 94% of Poles believe in god and nearly half go to church every week. Unlike the rest of Europe, you won’t find open displays of nudity in Poland, and the former President even tried to ban miniskirts and heavy makeup in 2007!

Now, you’ve got to understand that these sentiments are mostly held by the older generations. The problem is that Poland is an aging country . Back in 1950, the median age in Poland was 25.8. Now, the median age is 38.2. Because of economic and political reasons, Polish people simply aren’t having many children and the population has gotten old. This makes it pretty difficult for the younger generations who grew up with Western culture and the internet. No wonder so many Polish women are eager to get out of Poland! They just want to have fun like their neighbors in Germany and Czech Republic. Once they get out of the country, Polish girls really do start having fun. One study even found that Polish women who move to the UK have 4 times more sex than they did back at home!

3. Polish Women Are Eager to Get Out of Poland

In addition to wanting to escape the oppressive conservative culture, Polish women are eager to leave Poland because of economic reasons. According to Business Week. Poland is home to 5 of Europe’s 20-poorest regions. Employment is at 13.5% and many earn less than $1.66 per hour. Because of this, Poland has lost over 1 million people since it joined the EU in 2004. That is a lot for a country of just 38 million.

4. You Are Expected to Be a Gentleman

Polish dating is old school, meaning you are expected to be a gentleman and chivalrous. There is no question as to who is going to pay the bill (you ), and you should go the extra mile to open the door for her, pull out her chair, and bring flowers. And, if she has a heavy bag (luggage, groceries, etc.) you better carry it for her! In fact, if someone saw you on the streets of Poland letting a woman carry a heavy bag while you walk nonchalantly next to her, they would think you were a total douche and start talking bad about you.

Polish Girls vs. Other Eastern European Girls

If you have tried dating a Russian or Ukrainian girl only to be turned off by her coldness and demanding nature, then a Polish girl will come as a nice change. Polish girls are just as beautiful as the Russian girls, but they have more Westernized manners. They also aren’t as serious as Russian women. When you ask them “How are you,” they won’t respond with a long, thought-out answer about the status of their life at the moment. Polish girls tend to think beyond material needs, so won’t be offended if you suggest going for a bike ride as a date idea instead of some fancy-shmancy dinner that costs your entire paycheck.

One thing that Polish women do share with the rest of Eastern Europe is their love of family. They are very committed to family, their mothers in particular. Don’t be surprised if your Polish girlfriend shares every detail of your date with her mother. And if her mother gets sick, she is going to be on the next flight back to Krakow before you can say “pożegnanie.” But, on the flip side, this is why Polish women make such good wives and mothers.

Polish girls love to drink vodka and beer, enjoy dancing and partying, and have a keen fashion sense. But never forget that they are ultimately from a conservative Catholic society. Your Polish girlfriend will not be happy if you cheat on her (don’t even think about asking her for an open relationship ). She wants to be in a committed relationship and doesn’t want to play games. In fact, she doesn’t even know how to play games! This trait makes Polish girls easy to pick up. but be cautious about giving out your phone number because she will call you. Again. And Again. Until you pick up and promise to be her boyfriend.

How to Find a Polish Girlfriend?

Before you start looking for a Polish girl, you better make sure that you actually want a girlfriend. Polish girls might be easier to pickup than more-experienced Western girls, but these are the types of girls who want commitment.

What you don’t want to do is go to a free Polish dating website and start sending out messages. First off, nothing good in life is free. So any free Polish dating site is going to be run or overrun by scammers. I know you think you are too smart to fall for a scam – but these scammers are very skilled and run well-organized operations. They often pay women to sit in front of webcams and chat with you. The women will eventually show you their “tickets” and “visas”. Then, at the last minute, they will say that they need money for some “Visa Code XYZ”. These scammers actually know the visa codes, so their claims sound legit and you naively send money to the Polish girl so she can come visit you. The money disappears along with your Polish girlfriend.

If you live in the UK, chances are that you can easily find a Polish girlfriend just by hanging around the immigration office. There are about 600,000 Polish immigrants in the UK. Or maybe you can start shopping at the local Polish deli and ask some cute blonde Polish girl for advice on which podwawelska to buy.

For people who don’t live in the UK, your best chance of getting a Polish girlfriend is to book a trip to Poland. The country is actually worth the visit, and not just because of all the beautiful Polish girls you can oogle over. While eating delicious food, enjoying good jazz music in underground cafes, and checking out cool castles, you can easily meet lonely Polish women who are eager for a foreign boyfriend to whisk them away from their impoverished country. Finding a Polish girlfriend is so easy, in fact, that travel guides even talk about it. Like over at Road Junky where they report that talking to a Polish girl for just a few minutes is enough to get a date (though it will take several dates and obligatory presents to get her in bed). So, if you are the type of guy who needs help with dating. then Polish women are a good start.

Can’t swing a trip to Poland? Then check out the big dating sites like OK Cupid and eHarmony. Just use the search feature to look for people who speak the Polish language. With this approach, you are spared the hassle (and cost) of sponsoring your new Polish girlfriend’s immigration visa, and hopefully her family will be so far away that you don’t have to deal with obligatory visits to the parents every weekend.

Is Casual Dating for You?

Casual dating may seem like an ideal scenario. After all, what guy wouldn’t want the freedom to go out with any woman at any time? But while it may seem like a desirable situation, the fact is it’s not for everyone. Here are a few things to consider before deciding whether or not casual dating is right for you.

Serious vs. casual relationships

Before deciding on whether to seek serious or casual relationships take some time to think about what you truly want. If you could rub a magic lamp and get the any relationship you desired, what would it look like? Would you want the excitement of running from one woman to the next? Or would you want that one steady, reliable girl who’s devoted only to you? There’s no right answer here, the point is to get clear on exactly what it is you want. That way you can go out and get it.

While figuring out what kind of relationship you want it’s also important to figure out why you want that type of relationship. Do you want a serious girlfriend? Or do you tell yourself that’s what you want because it’s what society/your family/your friends tell you to have? Is casually hooking up with random women truly how you want to spend your time? Or do you just feel pressure to try and keep up with your buddies? These are important questions to answer before deciding what kind of relationship to pursue. In the end you want to make sure you’re doing what you want and not fulfilling the wishes of others.

How to know if casual dating is for you

The thing about casual dating is for it to work it must go both ways. You can’t give yourself complete freedom to date other women yet force the girl to be exclusive only to you. This creates an unbalanced and unhealthy relationship that’s more about control than anything else. It’s the type of arrangement that’s likely to create a lot of drama before it comes crashing down.

So before you start looking for casual relationships ask yourself, are you really okay with the women you date going out and potentially sleeping with other guys? If so, then go ahead and enjoy your casual relationships. If not, it’s a red flag that casual dating isn’t for you.

Make your intentions known

Once you know what kind of relationship you want, let your intentions be known. Within the first couple of dates – preferably date #1 talk to the girl about what you’re each looking for in a relationship. You don’t have to go into much detail but it’s a good idea to ask something like “So are you more of the causal dating or serious relationship kind of girl?” To make sure she doesn’t feel any pressure when answering this question you may want to go first and let her know what it is you’re looking for.

You may lose a few girls rather quickly this way (don’t be surprised if some girls say they’re not looking for anything serious, yet mysteriously stop calling after this conversation), but that’s exactly the point. You’re filtering out women who aren’t compatible with what you want. This will save a lot of headache and frustration down the road. You won’t waste days, weeks, or even months trying to force a relationship that was doomed from the start. Instead, you’ll be free to find the girl (or girls) who fit your lifestyle.

Double check your status

Let’s say you told the girl on the first date you weren’t looking for anything serious. To your delight, she said that she wasn’t either. While it’s great that you started off on the same page, after a few weeks or months you’re going to want to revisit this topic. Why? To make sure she’s still okay with the arrangement.

On some occasions a woman will say she’s not looking for anything serious when deep down she is. But she’s willing to wait a few weeks for you to change your mind. Then there are times when a girl truly isn’t looking for anything serious, but as time goes on she begins to feel differently. She starts feeling more connected and becomes interested in something more. For these reasons it’s a good idea to revisit the topic of your relationship status after you’ve been seeing each other for a while. Make sure she knows nothing has changed from your perspective (unless they have) and give an out if she wants it. This will help you avoid a lot of unnecessary drama down the road.

If you want to keep a relationship casual then you’ve got to set up some boundaries. You don’t want to find yourself “casually dating” a girl yet behaving as you would if you were in a serious, committed relationship. Doing so would get things real complicated, real quick.

So if you’re casually dating a girl be sure to avoid “boyfriend” type behavior. Don’t call or text her nearly every day. Don’t have her meet the family, or regularly invite her to be your date for special events. Actions like these can blur the lines of your relationship and send mixed signals, planting the thought in her mind that the relationship is becoming more serious. If you don’t want her thinking that way and are not interested in having her as a serious girlfriend, then avoid giving her a taste of that role.

How to Know When You’ve Found Your Soul Mate

Many of us have pondered the concept of soul mates before. What is a soul mate? Do I have one? And if so, where is mine? The idea that there is one special person created just for you is too juicy not to consider.

I definitely believe in soul mates, but my definition extends beyond the traditional idea of The One. What I believe is that a soul mate is a person with whom you are unexplainably drawn to be in relationship.

Soul mates are brought into your life so that you can grow and expand into the best version of yourself.

Let’s think about attraction for a second. We come into contact with many, many people throughout our lives. And we are attracted to some of them. But there are only a few that we are so attracted to that we make a decision to partner-up with them.

Why is it that we are pulled to get into relationships with just a few people?

It’s because, when it comes to attraction, our unconscious is leading the way. Love is not logical; it is of the soul. And the soul knows a thing or two; it’s pretty damn smart. It will match you up with the very people you are supposed to be with, and it does this through attraction.

When you feel a strong urge to enter a relationship with another person, rest assured, you have found a soul mate.

Now, of course, this does not mean that the relationship will last forever. Nor does it mean it’s going to be a walk in the park. In fact, you can assume that you are going to come up against some challenges with your soul mate. Where there is potential for the greatest love there is also the potential for the greatest pain. Soul mate relationships include both.

I know, I know, you don’t want this to be true. None of us do. We all want the love without the pain. We want bliss without breakdown. But it isn’t possible.

Because both love and pain exist WITHIN US. What is within us is going to show up in front of us, especially in our relationships. This means that the unresolved issues that are residing within you are going to come to the surface in our most intimate relationships.

Many of us are quick to write off our relationships when the going gets tough, but I’m here to assure you that challenges aren’t necessarily a bad thing. In fact, it’s supposed to happen this way. Because what does not come to the surface cannot be healed. We have to look our demons in the eye if we want them to go away.

People spend a lot of time questioning whether or not they are with the right partner. And usually this question arises when we feel pain or discomfort.

But what if we shifted our perception a bit. what if we understood and accepted that discomfort is part of the deal?

And this doesn’t mean that we act carelessly with our partners to evoke more pain. Nor does it mean that we stick around in relationships that are abusive or too awful to tolerate.

But what I am proposing is this: What if we recognized that discomfort comes from within us (no, it’s not their fault) and that it is telling us that we need to change? What if we actually took responsibility for our uncomfortable feelings and approached them as a call to become conscious–to learn where we struggle the most and try to grow beyond these setbacks?

Jung said, “Seldom or never does a marriage develop into an individual relationship smoothly without crisis. There is no birth of consciousness without pain.” Pain is the opportunity; it literally is the call to wake-up and change.

To personally evolve means to grow through the things that challenge us the most. Our Souls long to do this–we inherently want to become greater people. Deep within us we are called make our way through struggles and emerge victorious. Our Soul Mates are the people that give us the opportunity to do so by triggering our issues so we can become conscious of them and create a different reality.

And how do we move beyond the issues that get triggered in relationships? By choosing love instead.

You can say that all feelings are categorized as either love or fear. To state the obvious, love feels good; fear does not. To grow simply means we transform experiences of fear into experiences of love. There are many simple and difficult opportunities to do this within a relationship.

Choosing love means we see people (including ourselves) beyond their mistakes. It means we see the potential in our partners, even when they cannot see it within themselves. It means we are kind, compassionate, understanding, and forgiving, even when it’s hard to do. It means focusing on the good in somebody else, rather than the bad. It means consciously committing to work through our stuff; to clean up our side of the street.

Your Soul Mate is someone to grow with. This doesn’t come easy. They are going to challenge you in many ways, and that’s ok. Don’t write off your relationship because it’s difficult at times–understand that the difficultly is an opportunity for you grow.

The next time you start to question whether or not you have a soul mate, take a look at the person or people you are closest too. They are your soul mates. Quoting Jung once again, know that “in all disorder [there is] a secret order.”

People who are in your life are here to help you become a better person, to expand and grow in love.

All you have to do is accept the challenge.

Online dating has become a popular and legitimate way to meet people and form relationships. The Internet allows anonymity and offers women a degree of protection. It also increases the risk of deception by someone with the wrong intentions. Some married men use online dating sites to flirt with women or carry it further. There are a number of ways to determine if this is the case, and eliminate the men who misrepresent themselves.

You have a better chance of meeting an honest and single man on a dating site that charges a fee. A married man will want to avoid credit card charges to a dating site. Free dating sites are rife with married men trolling the Internet.

Most dating sites recommend usernames. If you are conversing with a man online, ask for his first and last name. A married man may have limited information on his profile. He may not have a photograph, or may have a photograph that is unclear or does not show his face.

Search his name online, but be aware that this may not be his true identity. Access social networking sites to see if he has a profile. Ask for his telephone number and do a reverse search. Check telephone directories in the city or town where he resides. If he provides a cellular number it may be because he does not have a land line or he does not want you to contact the number. If he provides or you locate a telephone number, block your telephone number by dialing *67 and call. The voice mail may provide clues or a woman may answer.

Ask pertinent questions to prompt him to reveal information about himself. Casually ask him if he cooks, and what he had for dinner the past few nights. Single men cook, but they do not usually prepare meals every night. Ask him about his work. He may have contact information on the Internet, or a profile on business networking site.

Ask a lot of questions but do not interrogate him, just appear very interested. People like to talk about themselves. Ask about hobbies, sports or anything where you can glean some personal information. For instance, if he says that he is on a hockey team with some friends, you can say that you would love to see him play sometime and ask for details. If you are younger, ask about school. All of these may lead to information found on the Internet, where you can verify his information. Ask what clubs or restaurants he regularly attends. Married men usually do not frequent clubs, bars or restaurants as single men do.

  • If he calls you, keep track of the days and times that he calls. If he never calls you in the evening or weekends, it may be because he is at home with his wife.
  • Tell a little white lie that your brother or father is a police officer and that he likes to know about your dating prospects. This may frighten away a married man who does not want anyone prying into his personal life.
  • Ask for his email address. People often create email accounts on sites that cannot be traced.
  • If he has an email account with an Internet provider, chances are he is legitimate.


  • There are sites for people who want to be unfaithful. Do your research before joining any dating site.
  • It is good to be suspicious; however, a man may just be a private person and not hiding anything. If he seems sincere and you are interested, keep correspondence casual while you determine if he is trustworthy.
  • Never provide your home address or invite a strange man to your home. Meet him in a public place and take a cell phone. Tell a friend or relative where you will be.
