My guilty pleasure: Shopping. Preferably shoe shopping, like every other girl on earth.
You'd never guess: That I'm a lay associate for the Sisters of Notre Dame in Chardon. We meet monthly and do retreats. It's a great way to learn more about my faith. The nuns grow by being around us and we grow by being around them.
I can't live without: Animals. They make a house a home. I've loved animals since I was a little kid.

Most romantic thing I've ever done: My boyfriend came home from a business trip, and I left a trail of rose petals leading from one note to another until he found me.
What I look for in a significant other: Somebody who has good morals and values. I like a sense of humor and someone who's respectful, humble and intelligent.
I always, sometimes or never make the first move: I usually never make the first move. Maybe when I was younger.
Would you like to be famous?: I would like to be famous because people in the spotlight can impact the world.
Do you rehearse what you're going to say before making a phone call?: No. Why would I?

If I could gain one quality or ability, it would be: The skill to train animals.
I wish I had someone with whom I could share ... : The rest of my life with.

My favorite ... book: God on a Harley. I turn every one of my friends on to this book. It's about a girl who's looking for a relationship who happens to meet a guy on a Harley. The guy turns out to be God. ... TV show: Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I love California and the women are beautiful, but I can't believe how they behave. It makes for good entertainment. ... movie: The Pink Panther. A classic comedy. It's good family fun. ... music: I listen to everything but I'm into country right now. I'm attracted to the artists because they are down to earth. ... restaurant: Johnny's Downtown. And Dante, Luca and Etna. Italian food is my favorite. ... app: Shazam.

What I'm reading: I just picked up The Five Languages of Love.
IPod embarrassment: "The Climb" by Miley Cyrus.
I'm so over: Winter. I don't like snow and cold weather. I'm into island weather. I even like humidity.
Dream job: Working with wild animals at my own sanctuary.
Dream vacation: Monaco or Monte Carlo. I'm insane about both of them. I'd love a month on a yacht or at a villa.
My take on Cleveland's single scene: It's really difficult. It's so small that everybody knows each other and that makes it hard to date.
Are you on Tinder?: No. I just found out about it.
Best thing about being single: You can come and go as you please.
Worst thing about being single: You don't have that person to have companionship and love with. And holidays suck when you're single.
Best date I've been on: I met someone from Cleveland on a cruise and we spent the entire day and night in Portofino. We rode a scooter, went shopping and went to a nightclub on the water. It was a blast.
Worst date I've been on: A trip to Italy with a boyfriend I had dated on and off for six years. He was rude to people and arrogant.
Do you hope to settle down in the next five years?: I hope to settle down before the next five years.
