My self-summary
Right off the top: I have two smart, daring girls, 13 and 16, who are with me half of the time; these days they have very busy lives of their own.

I love exploring new places, walking around the city, getting out of the city, eating out, live music, movies, camping, playing on the beach, gardening, reading, trying new things. I LOVE being outdoors in almost all weather (really, what's better than walking on the beach during a huge storm?) Hiking is my go-to activity. I have done tons of backpacking and camping throughout my life, and continue to get out into the mountains a couple times a year these days. I love (almost) all types of dancing -- I'm a jill-of-all-dances -- although I haven't been out dancing much lately. More dancing at home. Lately I've been playing pickleball (an adaptation of tennis) which is so much fun! Looking forward to playing more of that this summer. I also really love staying home and hanging out, watching a movie, playing games, (the girls and I love doing karaoke).

Most of my professional career has been as a teacher of kids. Also, for 4 years I facilitated groups (kids and adults) through a ropes course, low ropes and high ropes, out in the woods in Connecticut. (Low ropes is about team-building while solving group challenges; High ropes is about individuals facing fear, contacting inner courage and stepping forward.) I am currently teaching 7th grade, which it turns out has much in common with the goals of the ropes course. Fun + risk = bonding + personal growth -- How lucky am I?

Seeking a smart, fun man with high integrity, who will just tell the truth, and let the chips fall where they may!

You should message me if
it seems like a good idea! By the way, I don't have "A-list" so don't bother "liking" me -- just write a message!
