My name is Danna Jr. Swedish decent, but grown locally in the US. I was raised predominantly by strong, loud, amazing women and today, as my Father just passed, I am now the man of our growing family. An only son to my Father, he was my hero. He taught me how to be a good partner, a Father, how to heal wounds with laughter and to always look forward. He is, and always will be, at my core. My Mother and 4 sisters are incredibly successful and their ambition and guidance help me dream bigger dreams and one by one, I am working to make them come true. I am always searching to assist someone in greater need than myself. Pushing myself both physically and emotionally to train my body, steel my mind, listen and then act when someone is in need. Family has become increasingly present in my mind. My Grandfather and my Father passed away in 2009 and I began to look at the many opportunities that lie ahead for me more closely. To leave the military and come to San Francisco to be with family seemed to be my only choice. In the city are two sisters and two nephews. Forging a bond with the babies trumps any work I've done as a medic. Loving someone will never be so easy as it is with them. I have these wild dreams of travel or even returning to Military Special Operations but of course, my ultimate dream is, to be the best Husband and Father I know I could be. I want my Mother and Sister's to say "That's my son, that's my brother, he's the best guy we know." So, I'm at a cross roads. Finding love may very well help me facesmake these life-changing decisions. Someone who will inspire me. If that means staying in California working as a coach and teacher so that every night and weekend I get to spend my time with my wife and my children, teaching them, traveling, having adventures and doing it all together, so be it. I don't HAVE to jump out of airplanes to feel needed. I will know I am needed.
I've been training hard, studying harder, competing in both triathlons and marathons and am now at the onset of my Ironman training. I've also been doing a lot of soul searching, looking differently at the woman I've dated in the past and what can be taken from those relationships. I've also learned a lot about other men from my sister's. As a young man, I'd watch their faces light up when the cute, older, bad boy, hung around long enough for one of their hearts to break. We'd talk extensively about what went wrong, what could have been better, and together, we take stock. My sisters are 39, 36, 34, and 22 now, and oh boy, they all have their opinions but what is blindingly obvious is that they want me to be happy. And I know by being the only brother to 4 gorgeous, highly educated and industrious women that "A good man is hard to find!" Well, here I am. And they all couldn't agree more. I AM THAT GOOD GUY who will protect you, be your best friend, give you space to be you, challenge you to be you're best, not judge you or make demands on you and most importantly, love you UNCONDITIONALLY. Provided you are the girl for me. I believe she's out there. I don't have any ridiculous physical standards that would lead me to believe otherwise. I'm looking for a healthy, loyal, spontaneous, FUNNY (Please be funny, if you aren't, I'll work harder), kind, generous & compassionate. A girl who wants to find a man who can be all those things for her - then ALLOW him in. I'm here. I want to get married someday. So I can start a family and raise them right. With love, laughter, a big funny warm family around them who will make you laugh so hard you might never want to leave.
In summary, my name is Danna, I go by Dan. I'm in great shape (both mind and body) to give this strange opportunity the chance it deserves. I'm ready to find her. When I step off the finishing line, a few years from now, at Kona Ironman, I want to be kissing my wife.
