Responses to some questions
How would you describe yourself?
To my future bridge:
I have searched all over the globe for you, yet I have not met you. It is clear that I have searched in all the wrong places because you are not by my side now.
I seek the love that only you can bring to my life. I seek to devote myself to you just as you shall devote yourself to me. The road ahead will not be easy...but it will be filled with love from me for you - all I ask is that you give me the same.
My Uncle has told me of the amazing beauty and intelligence of the women of the FSU and in particular the Ukraine where he met his wife. He suggested that I stop limiting myself to the USA and considered that my bride may be in another country - so here I am.
I choose to live my life with honor, openness, and dignaty.
I own a small business providing transportation of freight between the USA, Canada, and Alaska.

How do friends view you?
having a generous heart. A friend once wrote that I am "genuine" (her letter is below). An ex girlfriend of mine told me that while I was not the man she was looking for personally, she thought I would make an excelent father and husband for the right woman.
I have asked several of my friends to write something for this website.
This is the response I got from my ex girlfriend Ingrid:
"Michael is a gentleman and the best man I ever meet, he is romantic, loving, caring and is always trying to find a way to put a smile on peoples face."
A friend writes this letter to you :
How can I describe my friend, Michael that could be short and sweet?
I will try my best but, it won’t be easy!
Let’s start at the beginning. Michael and I met online in a chat room
called “Excite” many years ago in realm called “Virtopia”. It was a
chat room where a couple had created a realm of King and Queen,
princes and princesses, ladies, knights, lords, etc. Michael, aka
Kermit then became Sir Kermit and I was dubbed the Angel of Virtopia.
Sir Kermit played his role well as a knight. He was a little joker
but always respectful and kind to others. Never out of place. Not
knowing him so well then, one always wondered if it was an act or if
he was the same person in reality.
We’d meet online and chat for long periods of time. He met a
“princess” in the realm and they were to be married in the realm’s
chapel and I was asked to perform the ceremony. I was honored and did
as my friend had wished. I did some research online to find the
perfect ceremony for them and tweaked it up because they were worth
it, HE was worth it. I worked on preparing the ceremony for over a
week to make sure he gets what he deserved – a one of a kind wedding,
fit for a frog turned knight and to a lovely princess.
We never lost touch. Excite eventually disappeared along with many of
our friends we had made along the way. Thankfully through Facebook,
some were found but, that place we called “home” is no longer there.
Conversations never ceased between us despite the fact that we had
never seen each other in person.
Michael is one of my oldest online friends and I could tell him
anything and I know he will keep it safe. I know that if I needed him
tomorrow, he’d come in an instant – no questions asked.
Last year, I FINALLY met Michael for the very first time. He was
bigger than I thought! I knew he was a big guy but, never expected
him to be that tall! Husky, burly man with the gentlest soul.
He brought balloons for my 5 year old son, who was thoroughly
entertained! Attention was given to him and my son was in heaven!
Michael took the time to talk to him at his level. Fulfilled all of
my son’s requests and even made me a couple of balloons. Despite my
son undoing his work (he was wanting to see how he could redo what he
had undone), Michael was very patient and redid them for my son. Such
Turning 40 is a special time in one’s life, especially for a woman and
he understood that. He made a special trip (from Texas to Montreal)
to see me on my birthday! Though he came a month later (unforeseen
circumstances beyond our control), he came. That was indeed THE BEST
birthday gift – a friend from so long came all the way to see me! He
has that way about him…he makes YOU feel special.
If you were to ask me to describe him in just one word, I’d say
impossible. Michael is much more than just one word. He is kind,
caring, gentle, patient, giving, outgoing, eager for adventure,
attentive, and loyal. His intentions are true, he speaks his mind and
you will never guess what he’s thinking, he’ll let you know, whether
you want to hear it or not, but he will never disrespect you in doing
So, to sum it all up, my dear friend, Michael is genuine. What you
see is what you get. No games. You want to feel special? You want
to be the center of attention? You want the affections of a man who
will be there for you? You want a man who you can count on to support
you, love you, and care for you? Never doubt that all of the above is
How do acquaintances view you?
a generous and hard working man.
What are your favourite games?
I am a fan of many card games and strategy games. I enjoy playing role playing games online on occasion...its fun to loose oneself in a magical story.

What is your favourite food?
I absolutely love chineese food. I have spent time in Korea and thus learned how to use Chopsticks. I also enjoy trying foods from all over the world. Sharing of our cultures and our local ethnic flavors is something I will very much enjoy with my future bride. I am sure that we shall each enjoy the other's cooking. look forward to me washing most of the dishes...as a thank you when you cook for me.
What are your favourite films?
Star Trek, Star Wars, James Bond, romantic movies of all sorts such as Sleepless In Seattle.
What is your favourite fairy-tale?
Cinderella...I like to think of myself as prince charming who falls in love with an amazing woman... her station is not as important as her remarkable heart.
What is your favourite activity or hobby?
I love to Rock Climb. I find it easy to find peace while I climb. Being safe and finding the next holds for my feet and hands force me to think only about the moment...and not the unsettling things of regular life.
I also enjoy woodworking and home improvement for friends and family. Holding a hammer or saw in my hand and making something beautiful is magic for me. I make jewelry also and I find joy in seeing something beautiful come from my hands.
What is your dream job?
I would love to move into woodworking full time. I have been purchasing tools twords that end. I feel that to be a father, it will be necessary to be home on a regular basis and to have control over my schedule. I have a desire to be a part of my children's special moments in life...and I see business ownership with it's self control of scheduling as a means to that end.
Tell us about your dream partner.
She has a kind heart, is devoted to me as much as I am to her. She is a passionate lover and enjoys my desire to share all of my passion with her on a regular basis. She enjoys traveling and finds a sense of serenity just by holding my hand.
Where do you want to live?
I have not entirely decided. for the next three years I plan on living in a rural community in Montana for business reasons. After that, I have some flexibility in where my home shall be...the woman I am with is the most important aspect of home for me. in general I like Alaska and the Pacific Northwest of the US. I like the mix of the mountains with close proximity to the ocean.
