Michele was recommended by her friend Kim: "I have this friend, Michele. She loves to brunch, hike, make terrariums and is always up for any kind of adventure, whether it involves exploring Los Angeles by day, having a DIY pizza and Netflix party by night or the occasional crazy (but not too crazy!) night out in WeHo. What I love most about her is that she never needs alcohol to have a good time. Her easygoing yet adventurous spirit is mirrored by her current occupation as a supplies manager at a super cool startup that makes DIY kits (cocktails, terrariums, lip balms) for adults (okay, millennials). She dotes on every animal under the sun, but the sure-fire way to her heart is the gift of petting any kind of puppy. Michele loves to laugh as much as she loves to love, so if you're clever and kind, she'd be delighted to meet you over a slice of pie or on a stroll through the Arts District!"
Here's Michele, in her own words:
What LA stereotype do you kind of live up to? I've been to basically every brunch place within a 5-mile radius of my apartment.
What's your favorite bar in LA? Sassafras! Where else can you find pecan flavored cocktails!?
Beach, mountains or desert? Mountains. It's great to go on a hike that completely wipes you out and then the view is totally worth it in the end.
FYF, Burning Man or the LA Phil? Burning Man. Office life is ruining my tan game.
What's the best thing about dating in LA? People don't expect you to call or text back.
What's the worst thing about dating in LA? ... People don't expect you to call or text back.
What's your ideal first date spot and why? Huntington Dog Beach. A man who can shamelessly go to a dog beach without a dog is the man for me.
