My name is Dave. I recently moved back to the pioneer valley after living abroad for a while and am looking for a special woman with whom to share adventures both big and small, profound and mundane. Now, for a bit about myself:
I recieved my BA from Tufts University in 2006.
I love spending time outdoors hiking/snowshoeing, riding my bike, swimming, or simply walking around barefoot in the grass. I'm awed by nature on a daily basis and I feel drawn to the wilder places in the world.
I speak English and Spanish and I'm interested in languages in general.
I find tremendous gratification in doing hands-on projects (woodworking, metal sculpting, landscaping, etc) and figuring out creative ways of fixing and/or improving things.
I enjoy exploring different cultures through their foods and, despite having managed a restaurant kitchen for two years at one point, I still love to cook, especially for family and friends.
I think breakfast is the best and most versatile meal.
When it comes to music, I think that there is a time and a place for almost everything.
I have been known to enjoy dancing (especially with a little encouragement), and I'd like to learn to tango.
I am a big fan of pub trivia, scrabble, crosswords, riddles, games, and jigsaw puzzles.
I am a Sox, Celtics, and Pats fan, but I don't let their ups and downs rule my life. My favorite sport to watch is actually lacrosse and I also enjoy watching English and Champion's League soccer matches from time to time.
I love spending time with kids and I'm currently considering the idea of going to grad school for teaching.
I don't have any pets of my own, but I am more than capable of dishing out a pampering to my friends' cats and dogs.
And, I give great massages.
