My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi. Dan here. I am 52.

I live and work near Dartmouth College in the Upper Connecticut River Valley (Hanover, NH). I teach high school History at a prep school in the area. I am divorced and have two children, ages 11 and 13. My kids split time between me and my ex. We all get along well.

I'm somewhat of an introvert, though I am quick on my feet and can have fun socializing. I am a big picture person, and I am not so good at details. I'm a liberal. If you are conservative we are probably not a good match. I know that there are couples where one leans to the Right and the other to the Left, but I also know that I seek camaraderie in a relationship. That doesn’t mean we both need to lead the protest march, but it does mean that we need to be able to talk about issues and about the world around us and how we engage in that world...and as much as I respect your conservative inclinations, you'd probably roll your eyes too much at my desire to figure things out. :)

Character "flaws": I can be insecure, I can experience fear, I am a perfectionist at work but also somewhat of a daydreamer. (Dubious combination.) I can become self-sabotaging when I unconsciously sense threats to my ego, though I am very good at recognizing when my old tapes are spinning and I can usually diffuse my fear with some chocolate and coffee.

I am.... quite imperfect. I try not to bow to my flaws, but they sometimes have more power than I would care to admit.

I coach club and high school soccer though I’m not a mega-jock. I enjoy the team-sport environment. I think I'm good at facilitating a positive experience for young athletes. That said, my favorite form of exercise is long walks. I am NOT a fitness freak. Sure, I like to stay fit and healthy - I eat well, save for the occasional tootsie roll or cookie - but I do not make the quest for fitness a central part of my daily life.

I do have a serious sweet tooth.

My idea of a wonderful day is leisurely morning coffee, followed by a walk and lots of interesting conversation. Maybe a day trip to a small town we have never visited, or to the new bookstore in Burlington. Making soup together for dinner. Nothing too over-the-top. I’m one of those people who prefers the every day to the holidays.

My favorite vacation EVER was a recent trip I took with my sister and her boyfriend. They were driving around the country for 3 weeks, and I jumped in the backseat of their SUV and spent 6 days talking, eating, laughing, and relaxing. So many wonderful, important conversations, amazing meals, hilarious moments - perfect.

I act in professional theater, play guitar and sing at local coffeehouses. Good fun. I have also been a storm-chaser, a college Meteorology teacher, a political activist...I've even written a book (working on #2) All cool enough. But the truth is, I revel most in the everyday relationships and friendships.

I am a bit of a wise ass.

Guilty of watching Naked & Afraid episodes while pretending to be aloof and above it all.

Music and movies - YES to both, and often.

Love to travel...and long school vacations make it feasible....lack of millionaire status makes it a challenge.

Guess that's it.

Thanks for reading.
