I am Catholic Italian, but not like the crazy ones you hear about. I am very calm, communicative and annalytical... but I do still have that Sicilian passion. :)
My morning energy is annoying to most people but it's my favorite part about me. I love mornings with coffee, especially on the beach. I moved to the east coast for work... I live in Cocoa Beach, but I play in Orlando on the weekends (and some Tuesdays)... Orlando is where my big Italian family and all my friends live (and where I hope to move back sooner than later... but I can't get myself to leave this beachhouse!)
I have aquired a new role in management that has kind of tamed me. I still drink socially, but partying isn't my thing anymore. I have alway been old fashioned in nature, and now my appreciation has recently shifted to good food, wine and adventure.
Things about me that I also value in a partner: Strong family values. A good balance of professional and social life. I like a guy that takes me to cool places, shows me new things, and still opens car doors. Respect and chivalry are HUGE in my book. I have appreciation for a man that cooks, and one that likes being outside but could also stay in and relax. Wit and humor are always a plus.
My love language is affirmation. I think birthdays are a super big deal and always try to blow them up to make people feel important on their big day. I'm thoughtful and very considerate; I try to always put myself in others' shoes to get their perspective on things and I really find happiness when people open up to me. I know, I sound like a hippie, but I am not :) I just like being with people and I love to have fun.
