Guest Post: Being Alone VS. Waiting for Mr. Right

As I am currently off for a long weekend by the beach, Rowdy Fairy has been handed over to the lovely Anda for the day! I hope you enjoy her fantastic post all about relationships, and please make sure you take the time to check out her fab blog :-)

My name is Anda. Anda Alexandra :) you need not know my family name as I will soon change it... This year (God willing!) I will marry the love of my life and we will be Mr. & Mrs. Just like in the movie with Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt... And tell you the truth we would be the perfect couple for a remake of that movie. Even our friends agree when we say that our children will be sweet yet really dangerous ;))) 




For a very long while in my live I had no one and I was perfectly fine with it. True, at certain moments (like parties and weddings) it would feel odd and I would feel the need of someone next to me, someone who would be with me, hold my hand and talk stupid little things. But maybe somehow deep inside my sould knew someone was waiting. Tell you the truth, I was quite prepared to be the perfect aunt for my big sisters children. I would have been the crazy aunt who would travel across the world and take them with her into the first trip abroad. I would take them out for movies and icecream and I would tell them tales of countries they never been to and I would take their pictures and I would teach them of the wonderful yet dangerous thing called social media - maybe I would even help them create their first FB account ;))) Who knows?!

I had though the chance to get a job in an international outsourcing company, which had the outsourcing headquarters for Europe based in Poland and they opened the second one in Romania and I was one of the first 10 employees! I loved the project and I loved the company but most of all I loved the people there. Being in the company and being in that project totally modified me... I made friends in Poland, I came to visit for around 10 days, and surprisingly people here in Krakow loved me so much that they wanted me here. They wanted me to work in Poland. They wanted me to move. Now, tell you the truth, I am quite a freak when it comes to traveling. If I would have the money and time I would do that 24/7 until I would go through each and every country...



What could I have said to such an offer?! It was an offer I could not refuse :p and actually it was also a big step... it was me, standing on my own two feet and facing the world. I had been doing that since I was small yet it would have been different now. Even different then when I was in the USA with "Work & Travel" program for almost 4 months... with the exception that then I knew I would come back and when... now it was all in the air... but guess what?! I JUMPED! That is what I do ;) I love jumping ahead and facing consequences - that is how I learn. And who likes to learn from other peoples experiences?! None :p

Well... there I was... on my own :) In a far away country with a weird language... Tell you the truth I did not understand a word... I had to work on my own how to get a public transport card, how to do my groceries, how to get to the gym/yoga class and understand instructions in another language, how to figure out all the small things inside an apartment and the oh! so funny! relationships with the neighbours that cannot speak english ;))) well... tell you the truth (but don't tell this to Polish people!) the language is similar to Russian and it does have certain words that are similar... First I started to understand when a sentence started and when it ended... they I realised the words and then I would focus on learning one by one the words in different contexts... don't get me started with the exceptions ;)))) there are more exceptions than rules for the Polish language :D

But either way, I was not ready for what Poland had prepared for me. My plan was to stay in Krakow for around 6 months, make some money, gather more knowledge/experience and then move around and maybe go to UK and/or Ireland - as I also had friends there and it would have been a good plan... but well... plans are always made to be broken and as much as I thought that I will be an old spinster that will not happen. And I am very glad! 



I never thought that there are truly knights in shiny armour, but yet there he was! And trust me, I was hard to get and even he agrees on that ;))) He tried to get to me by teaching me polish - I told him I need no help, I can figure it out on my own! Which I eventually did :) - he tried to get to me by showing me around the city - :))) big mistake! Until this moment I am still waaaaaaaay better with the navigation in Krakow than he is ;))) ask me as street/pub/shop/museum and I will tell you from where you are how to get there ;))) The thing that actually brought us closer was (yes, this is very not ladylike...) martial arts :D I used to do Kung Fu just for fun and he did also and I was missing the practice so we started beating eachother :))) now that I put it like that it sounds bad! but trust me it was perfectly ok ;) 


Last week (from Sunday evening the 20th until Saturday morning the 26th) he was away on his first business trip... I had some time on my own and I realised that I am glad I waited so long for the right person. I am happy he is the one and I have waited for him for so long. I feel that next to him I can be so much more and being with him makes me a better and more patient person. I was thinking of him a lot while he was gone and I realised that probably I would not have made it through right now without him. I grew so used to him now... Waking up with him next to me, smiling :) Or falling asleep and telling each other little thoughts... I missed him and even while I was out that week - be it at work, at the movie, with my friends, when I was out for a coffee or when I was reading he was in my thoughts... People walk into your life and take you by surprise until the point in which they become part of your heart... And he is my heart now :)


I hope all you ladies out there will have patience enough to find the love of your lifes. And trust me, when you will expect it the least it will come ;)
P.S. If you need any advice and guidance and you think I may help :) or if you have any questions regarding love and jumping, drop me an email at anda.alexandra.86@gmail.com or check me out at http://twistedredladybug.blogspot.com/ where I usually post on a daily basis for my friends and family :)
