One of my primary drivers in life is a strong desire to connect, interact, and engage with people. Be it a partner, my students, coworkers, old friends, potential new friends, single-serving friends...I tend to be at my most engaged and fulfilled when I'm interacting with people in a meaningful way.
Ultimately, I'm looking to settle down with an affectionate, optimistic guy with a good sense of humor. Someone who is comfortable expressing the full range of his emotions and strives to use direct communication to build intimacy and resolve conflict. Someone who wants to create a strong, stable partnership and family together. At the moment, though, my sights are set more broadly on meeting new people and making new connections.
Last but not least: I'm a dyed-in-the-wool ESFJ.
My plans for the future include operating a bed and breakfast in New Hampshire, and naming dogs after state capitals.
