As much as I didn't want it to, it actually happened. I turned 30. After that moment I realized I am at a point in my life where I would like to meet a woman who has time for a relationship to become long term and isn't afraid to commit.
Believe it or not this has been an issue for me. I have had a string of bad luck meeting women who didn't want a relationship either because they wanted to focus on their career or didn't have time for one. They didn't know who they are, what they want out of life, weren't over an ex, and/or were not emotionally available. And women think men are the difficult ones! In all fairness though, this seems to be more of a generational issue than anything else.
I want to find someone I can share all of my important moments with and I will share in yours. I am tired of the dating rat race. I don't want to "casually date" or "short term" date
(to be honest I don't know what either means). I am not looking for random hook-ups or being friends with benefits. I want the real deal. A stable, reliable person in my life. This site doesn't seem to be the place to find this, but, time will tell.
So who am I? Honestly, I'm not like most guys you will meet. First, my family comes from Hungary. My culture is a very important to me. My grandmother cooked traditional Hungarian meals. My father is a musician and plays Hungarian and Eastern European folk music. We spoke a different language in the home. It was a rude awakening for me when I started school to find out everyone isn't Hungarian! Who knew?!
I am the middle child, stuck between two sisters. Growing up I was surrounded by women. There were my sisters, my mother, grandmother and aunt all living together. My father and grandfather worked, so it was just me and the ladies. I was constantly told everything I did is wrong and I should keep quiet. According to my female friends this means I am well trained. They were joking, right?
In college I studied film and journalism. My two passions. I think the movies and books we read say something about us. Not everything mind you but they provide some insight. Me? I love comedies and classic Hollywood movies. This tells you I like to laugh and I'm old-fashion. As I said I grew up with my grandparents.
Those that know me best would say I am a goofball, so don't listen to them. I would say I am smart, creative, kind, funny and curious about what is going on around me. As a journalism major, politics and world events do interest me. I read the paper (the actual newspaper) every day. I like going to book stores (no kindle for me). I love seeing the new Woody Allen movie on opening day. I like comedy clubs and listening to live jazz either at the Green Mill or the Jazz Showcase and seeing foreign films at the Landmark Century theatre and the Music Box.
So what am I looking for? Well, I want to find someone who has an old-fashion sensibility to her. Tradition and family should be important to you. You are easy going and will laugh at my jokes (c'mon, someone has to). You aren't afraid to commit. You enjoy movies and music. You'll put up with me going to a comedy club and watching Woody Allen movies. You won't laugh at me for being color blind or not liking sports. You are religious and are curious about the world around you.
If any of this sounds interesting to you, I can't wait to hear from you. If not, well, it's your lost :)
