Polish and Hungarian just like my friend. And she resembles more to her father’s ancestry than mother’s. She has the polish head shape, round face but her eyes maybe more german since they tend to have almond shape like eyes.

She is way too pretty to be polish, but it works in this case.

She is Hungarian, German, English too… but in any case 100 percent polish people are known to be attractive too..

Look at Wikipedia – her mother’s maiden name is “French” (i.e. the name itself is “French”, not that the origin is French). So that indicates her mother is of English ancestry (the surname “French” is usually English… lol).

She’s so hot that my brain catches on fire when I think about her.

What do you think?
