I am an Italian American, originally from New York City, now residing in Las Vegas. I could not find my mate here in America so, I ended up marrying a girl in the Philippines. After years of waiting for her and a Visa, she decided not to come to the U.S. after all. So, my search continues. I have been raised very strict and traditional and am seeking the same in the woman I will meet. I am a bartender, by trade, and have been working in the casinos of Las Vegas for the last fourteen years. I've been in the food and beverage business my whole life and have been cooking since I was nine years old. It's a good thing too, because the woman in this country cannot cook. My ideal match would be an Italian woman but, they have proved to be so hard to find and many of their traditions and values have been compromised.
