Dan Meyer is a man who competed with Cooper for the house he wanted to buy for his family.
Dan and his wife, Darlene, put in the same offer as Cooper to buy a house owned by Mrs. Taylor. She asked to meet both of them in order to decide who would get the house. She wanted to sell the house to someone who would cherish the house like her family had. Dan and Darlene showed up early to their meeting, interrupting Cooper's. They brought a pie and talked about their charity work, including their work with the children's hospital's annual fundraiser, which Mrs. Taylor was familiar with. Despite this, Cooper ultimately was chosen to buy the house.
He is married to Darlene Meyer. They met while working at women's shelter. Dan says he knew from the beginning that Darlene was the one.
