Lording the Ladies: A Gallant's Guide to Picking Up Polish Women

3 min read    26 comments

Casanova's partner in crime, the Prince de Ligne (1735-1814), was a considerable match for his Italian friend when it came to the art of seduction. A regular guest at Europe's wittiest salons, the Prince was a connoisseur of a great many things, not least the charms of the fairer sex. It was in Warsaw, however, that the Prince experienced one of his most pleasant surprises, and he wrote to a friend of his discovery: 'Polish ladies,' he espoused, 'have a grace, a charm and an abandon superior to those of women of all other parts of the world.'

Today, travellers continue to be struck by the charms of Polish ladies. And there can be no denying that they do have a certain je ne sais crois. But how does one behave if they endeavour to get their 'passport punched?' Here in Poland, chivalry still reigns supreme. Much as we hate to say it, flowers still carry a lot of currency and are a classic must, and a kiss on the hand goes a long way, even with the youngest of maidens (of consenting age!). As does paying for absolutely everything (pony up, boys). If you chance upon a Polish lass who doesn't subscribe to these customs, full steam ahead brother - you've got a keeper. Overall, however, femininity enjoys a good game of fetch. If that doesn't sound like your bag, bear the sound words of Grzesio Cieplinski in mind: 'He who does not know Polish ladies does not know life.'

If Cupid's arrow strikes you down whilst travelling through this fair country, we may just be able to help out. We asked an exacting Polish lady to share her thoughts on the matter of mating games and she very graciously prepared for us the following flattering declarations in hopes of improving our chances, and yours. So, without further ado, here are a few classic expressions to help you step into Casanova's well-heeled shoes and plow the way to a Polish lady's heart. Bonne Chance mes amis!

It works on all kinds, for all kinds...

I really don't understand the line about the stamp collection vs. the butterfly collection. How exactly is this a pick up line or something endearing?

That is pathetic! To all polish brave knights: Poland is so poor because you waste your life with love! Don't be so romantic and don't dedicate your whole life to girls. There is much more out there then love!

Boy: So, where are they?
Girl: Where's what?
Boy: Your wings, I know an angel when I see one.

That worked on me when I was 13...
