A few days ago, Masella said they made the decision to date exclusively. The pair usually hit clubs together, he said, but they also like taking in a quiet movie too.
“We have a lot in common,” Masella tells People. “I think our features… It’s really weird but we do [look alike]. It’s cute though!”
Another plus: “She talks to me for me, a lot of girls hit on me for how I look, but she actually got to know me,” Masella says.
In January, Snooki -- whose real name is Nicole Polizzi – said she was single and in the market for love, according to People.
On Monday, the 22-year-old guidette posted pics of her new beau on her Twitter feed.
“Sry I'm taken ;)” she tweeted .
NBC Connecticut reached out to Polizzi's New York-based publicist, but a rep would neither confirm nor deny a relationship.
Masalla tells People he’s already met Snooki’s parents, and has discussed with her the possibility of appearing on next season's “Shore.”
