While it is a general saying around the world that Hungarian women are beautiful, which is true, Hungarian men are not to be underestimated either. If you have ever wondered what it would be like to date a true Hungarian man, or just wonder what Hungarian men are like read through the article.
If you live in a modern city or spend some time in a different country, you soon realise that people of different nationalities have certain special characteristics unique only to them. In a normal conversation, this already shows. Still, when you are trying to date someone from a different country, these characteristics and differences in habits can be felt even more so.

Strong family roles:
Hungary is a conservative country with strong family roles. This might not necessarily be a bad thing; you just have to keep this in mind to understand some things about Hungarian men. When dating, Hungarian men usually do not let the woman pay for the meal or the drinks. They like to be chivalrous and do things like open the door in front of you. While young men like partying, older Hungarians tend to be more – just like Hungarian women – family-oriented. Hungarian men care for their loved ones and try to assume the “wage earner” role in the family. They like the sense that they can support their families financially, and it might be a sensitive topic for them if their partner earns more. Also, Hungarian men put a great burden on themselves, but they might not show emotionally if they are struggling.

Deep, but hidden emotions:
This leads to our second important thing. For the same reason, as there are strong family models in Hungary, there are strong gender roles. This is starting to become less and less of a barrier, but Hungarian men usually show little less about how they feel, especially when it comes to struggling, fear or depression. You need to get really close to a Hungarian man for them to really open up to you and show the full extent of their emotions. This could be considered a con, but if you end up closely attached, they will be faithful to you.
Apart from occasionally eyeing some good-looking girls on the streets and generally being more kind to young women cashiers or shop assistants, Hungarian men tend to be faithful in nature. Hungarian men are also protective of their loved ones and their families and will not be afraid to stand up to others about them or even get into trouble for them. Although not all Hungarian men will look like bodyguards, most of them will consider getting in harm’s way to protect their loved ones if the situation calls for it.
Deadly sin: Sloth
Hungarian men like to be the head of their families or relationships, but in truth, most of the time, it is the woman who is the mastermind behind. In reality, the simple illusion of men being the head of the relationship will do. Hungarian men also tend to be from the lazy bunch. They will do most chores if necessary, but you should be “strong-handed” and do not let them get used to you doing the housework, or you will be left to do it forever. Hungarian men need “training” early but will do whatever they are used to doing until the end of time.
Simple, yet elegant:
Hungarians, in general, are headstrong and have a strong opinion on everything. They rarely change their mind and would often need first-hand experience to do so. Keep this in mind as it could save you from a lot of arguments in the long run. Hungarian men can be adventurous but also appreciate Sunday snuggles. You can go hiking or party with them, but if you just mention you are sad, they will bring you the hot chocolate and a blanket. Hungarian men also try to please their loved ones, but as Hungarians, in general, are straightforward both in speaking and thinking; they might not notice small signs or references. You should just tell them the problem or request directly. However, this might just actually be a universal attribute of men.
The way to a man’s heart:
Last, but not least, most Hungarian men are used to the women of the family preparing meals for them. Some Hungarian men insist on this more than others, but if you cook for them, they will appreciate it and will love you even more for it. For many men, however, preparing food outdoors or making barbecue is considered their duty and for some, it is even “taboo” for a woman to prepare food at the open flames.
Disclaimer: these are, of course, general ideas that might not apply to every single Hungarian man you meet or date. You need to keep this in mind.
