His name isn’t really Antonio (that’s the moniker I give all Italian men who might, could, possibly convince me, under HEAVY medication, to forget that I’m married. For like, a week. I met Nicholas through the whirlwind of interracial Facebook fan pages, but to be honest, what stopped me in my tracks was this:
Sorry…what was I saying? Must have blacked out for a moment from ALL THE SUN-SHINDGED HOTTNESS THAT IS NICHOLAS!!!
But Nick isn’t just another ‘Antonio.’ After snooping around his pictures, I realized he had met the love of his life already–the beautiful Brazilian Caterine Santana:
Their love story started online in 2009 when Caterine and her Mother moved from Brazil to Rome for work. Nicholas lives is Parma (you know, like the cheese?) so the couple had plenty of time to get to know each other from afar and I have to say, and young as they are, they seem to be HOPELESSLY in love. Caterine says Nicholas is her first love. And Nicholas was so smitten that he proposed the first day they met in person. Take THAT! Cinderella.
In his broken English, I’ll let Nicholas tell us what compelled him to pursue Caterine: [I puposely left his quote unedited because I believe his love and committment shines through.
