Profile: Michael De Dora Jr.

Meet Michael De Dora Jr., the biggest Pearl Jam fan ever … well, at least the biggest you may ever meet.

Michael is a 23-year-old who grew up in Long Island, N.Y., went to college in Albany, N.Y., and now resides on the Upper East Side of New York City.

He stands at 6-feet tall with an athletic build and dark features, and has been known to spend days at a time traveling through the Northeastern United States to see his favorite band, Pearl Jam. Getting away is something Michael enjoys.

Michael is an outdoorsy type. He spends his days off at the Bronx Zoo, walking around the city or sitting in a park, strumming his guitar and breathing in whatever fresh air he can find.

Michael is looking for a laid-back gal who doesn’t rely on makeup to be pretty, and doesn't wear high heels as her everyday shoes. Her favorite music shouldn't be rap, hip-hop, R&B or Top 40 pop music. And he’d like a woman who can debate him on current events and politics.

He wants a real, hip, intelligent and, yes, good-looking.

Sound particular? That explains his nearly year-and-a-half absence from the dating scene after his last break-up.
