Hi, I'm Michael, I am 31, can tie my own shoes and cross the street all by myself... that's right I'm one of the good ones ladies ;)
I have been living and working in Vancouver for the last 6 months, just got back to LA, moved into an amazing new place and loving being back in good old Los Angeles. :)
I'm a tall gentle giant ;) I wear my heart on my sleeve and enjoy surrounding myself with good people. I can be quiet and can also be the life of the party. I'm a very caring person, I am a loyal friend and have a pretty positive outlook on life. I never have a problem making friends, and find it hard to make enemies; I'm very easy to get along with. I have an affinity for great food and great cocktails, and it would be pretty great if you enjoyed that as well, its no fun to dine and drink alone :)
I love to travel and have been fortunate enough to get to travel to some great places for work as well. I worked in Malaysia for 6 months and it was a time I will never forget.
I grew up in Boston, went to undergrad at Syracuse. Lived in San Francisco for 3 years during grad school and then ended up in LA for work, where I have been for 6 years now.
I grew up in a large Italian family on my mother's side, and family is very important to me, albeit living far away.
I like sharing my time with someone who is fun to be around, someone who I can laugh with for hours. I'm looking for a nice girl to hang out with, someone sweet, cute, funny, maybe quirky even with a little bit of character. Someone to take spontaneous walks(well drives now i guess) in the city with, with no particular destination and see where the day takes us. Someone who likes to go out and have fun, maybe see a band play, but also likes to have a nice quiet night in and watch a movie, or stay up until the wee hours of the morning talking. I love taking drives down by the beach, with my iPod hooked up to the car and my music blaring, or riding my bike down by the ocean. I'm looking for someone that appreciates romance and a warm heart. My ideal girl would appreciate that I can enjoy watching a Red Sox game and a romantic comedy, maybe even a Korean drama!(friends got me hooked) If you love The Office, even the British one and Ricky Gervais, find Michael Cera hilarious, Love Actually, Napolean Dynamite and Garden State... I think we'll get along great! I think if the chemistry is there, we can have a great time hanging out no matter what we're doing. Someone that I can spend time with doing anything and have it be a blast. Someone who can be my best friend as well as my partner.
