Twenty-four year old Maxamillion Shiffler, a.k.a. Max, is looking for a best friend and a woman who does not live for the party scene. The handsome, blond union carpenter and Phoenixville native is a young man with quite a head on his shoulders. While most guys (his age) are hitting the local bars all weekend long, Max is focused on staying in shape and sticking with his priorities: family, friends and fitness. He is considering enrolling in the Marines in the spring of 2010. But, with piercing blue eyes and a gorgeous ‘million’ dollar grin, this blue-collar catch is not afraid to embrace his feminine side. “I get my eyebrows waxed and go tanning and I am not afraid to let everyone know! And, I work out a lot. Taking care of myself and staying in shape is really important to me,” explained Shiffler.
We came across Shiffler via a strong recommendation from an AML Facebook Fan who had highly suggested we consider the David Beckham lookalike as a sensational local single to celebrate. A brief conference call with ‘Beckham’s’ best friend Dave Wakeley confirmed we had discovered one great suburban gem of a guy. “Max is a no-nonsense kind of guy. He is very honest and trustworthy-very hard working and cherishes his friendships. We need to find Max a great woman with no baggage who appreciates what a great guy he is. He has a wonderful family and Max deserves the best. Whoever Max meets, they are going to cash in big,” explained Wakeley.
