My boyfriend Sam and I are from New York. I am 33 years old and he is 29 years old. This will be the first time Sam will be visiting Europe so I am very excited to show him where I come from. My parents were both born in Italy - my mother in San Benedetto del Tronto and my father in San Tomamaso in Calabria. He has been loving the Italian lifestyle in America so this will give him the true sense of where my roots lie. My cousin Giovanna lives in Italy with her husband and child and my other cousin is married and lives in Ascoli Piceno. Sam and I both graduated college and work in New York City in television production. We are both kind and respectful and have manners. We are both close with our families, love to laugh and do not drink or smoke.
