I tried finding some clever quote to open with, but ultimately decided to keep itsimple. So….Hi. With a little over a year left of my 20’s, I’ve come to a point in my life where I am looking for a serious relationship and best friend,rather than a casual, dining companion. Don’t get me wrong, I follow all the blogs on nyc nightlife and love going out to dinner at the restaurants and bars I’ve read about, and want to be with someone with similar tastes and interests to share that experience with, but a relationship cannot be based solely on that. I most enjoy just getting to know someone and doing some fun activity together: a wine tasting course or cooking class, exploring a new neighborhood, or even running Saturday errands. I love to talk and laugh, and am most happy surrounded by my closest friends and family, usually around a table involving a huge spread of small plates and wine. Yes, you can probably tell by now that I’m 100% Italian. What can I say? Food is Life. I’m looking for a man who is compassionate, thoughtful, loyal, confident, and a bit adventurous. I want to find someone to have new experiences and travel with, while at the same time, be totally comfortable staying in for the night and hanging out on the couch. I’m excited to where this might lead and hope to start it with someone here.
