I'm Melissa. I was born and raised on Long Island. I'm a real, down to earth, easygoing, optomistic, half "girly girl", half "tom boy", smart, energetic person. I'm a hard worker who enjoys my job and being creative, and also enjoys taking care of/ helping people. I have a great family, amazing friends, and a successful career. Overall I'm pretty happy in my life and now feel like I am really ready to start the next chapter and find someone special to share it with.
I'm French, Polish, English and German (most people usually have a hard time figuring out my ethnic background lol)
I'm looking for someone to enjoy life with, who's also real and down to earth, mature, open minded, romantic, who can make me laugh, and enjoys a night out and much as spending an evening relaxing on the couch watching a good movie or a Giants game. Really just looking for a nice guy with good old fashioned values. Not into metrosexual guys, men with pictures doing kissy faces and/or showing off their abs, or the Jersey Shore type either. I'm a pretty low maintenance person, so I'd like the same, especially in a man lol. For this reason, I also tend to prefer to date someone a little bit older.
I'm a big animal lover: I have 2 cats, 2 dogs, and a horse (yes, I own a horse lol). My animals are a big part of my life, so chances are that if you aren't an animal person... it's probably not going to work out
Movies: 'Christmas Vacation', 'Almost Famous', 'Walk the Line', 'Wedding Crashers'
Music: Huge music lover. Love everything from the Beatles and Led Zeppelin, to Frank Sinatra and Jay Z, to some Country.
Food: Italian, mediterranean,and sushi.
"Our lives are not as limited as we think they are; the world is a wonderfully weird place; consensual reality is significantly flawed; no institution can be trusted, but love does work; all things are possible; and we all could be happy and fulfilled if we only had the guts to be truly free and the wisdom to shrink our egos and quit taking ourselves so damn seriously." -Tom Robbins
