Well, it happened. As much as I didn't want it to, it actually happened. I turned 30. And with that 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.
This has been a problem for me in the past. I have had a string of bad luck meeting women who don't know who they are, what they want out of life, aren't over an ex, and/or are not emotionally available. I am past all of that. I know who I am and what I am looking for.
I want to find someone who 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" (to be honest I don't know what that 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.
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 played Hungarian and Eastern European folk music and 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. Writing and movies. I still write. I've been published. Created my own movie blog and was even quoted in a movie trailer. 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. I know a lot about things way before I was born.
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. I did study journalism so 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 jazz 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 that sounds like you or if I sound interesting to you, I can't wait to hear from you. If not, well, it's your lost :)
