What are you looking for in a mate? First and foremost, respect for one another. I want someone who supports me but that also voices their opinions even if they’re different than mine. Someone who is willing to face issues and not run away immediately. Someone who is trustworthy. We are all different and bring different qualities to the table and I think what’s exciting about having a partner is knowing their strengths and weaknesses and together work on becoming a team. Finally, a sense of humor, confidence, kindness and a love for music.
Biggest turn-off: Dishonesty and arrogance
Biggest turn-on: Altruism, confidence, a beautiful smile and eyes and a clean home/car.
Hobbies: Outdoor activities such as kayaking, biking, swimming, camping (probably not in a tent though; I’m gonna need a cabin or something). I enjoy traveling, music, performing arts and love to cook. I can cook an amazing pasta carbonara!
Describe your ideal first date: I want to talk and get to know the person. Doesn’t have to be anything crazy. A quiet dinner so we can chat. Good food (and wine) is a must.
Favorite TV show: “Scandal” and “How To Get Away With Murder”
Celebrity crush: James Marsden
One obscure fact about yourself: I was born in Washington but spent my childhood in Italy and speak Italian fluently.
