Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Rob. I'm a pretty straightforward guy. I say what I
think & I'm outspoken.
I'm Straight Edge, so in my life I've never had a drink, smoke or
done drugs. Even though I am Straight Edge, I still like to go out
to the bars to shoot pool or throw darts. Not big into clubs though
(too many people). And I've dated women who think that just because
I don't drink that I can't go out to the bars & enjoy myself or
that they can't drink in front of me. I do enjoy myself & as
long as you're safe about it drink when you want to. I don't force
my beliefs on others and I don't like it when people force theirs
My friends are my family and I hold them, and myself, to a higher
standard. I also am a cat person. I recently adopted an 8yo from
the Elm Brook Humane Society because no one else wanted her.
On that same note, I have certain...nerdish leanings. And I believe
that just because you get older doesn't necessarily mean you have
to grow up. My life growing up wasn't exactly a bed of roses, so
sometimes I think it's fun to watch cartoons, or occasionally
playing a video game. As long as you don't let that become your
life I believe you should keep a certain childlike sense of fun. A
sense of humor is also important, since all of my jokes end with
I am more than a fairly good cook. Often I don't have time to cook,
but when the mood strikes I like to try new recipes. I've been
cooking since before I can remember. My grandfather would have me
come out into his garden, we'd pick whatever he needed and we'd
make dinner. He was a former firefighter so he impressed upon me
how important being able to cook is. Plus the person cooking can
"taste the food" while they're cooking. :D
I like those little smiley faces. I don't know why, but they amuse
I appreciate honesty in all its shapes and forms. I would prefer
brutal honesty over a half-truth any day. That goes for dating too.
If we like each other, great. If not, then why waste everyone's
I want a woman who will challenge me intellectually and be
compatible with me physically (yes sex is important to me, but it's
not nearly the only thing I'm looking for). I want what everybody
wants. I want a lover, a partner and a friend.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I finished my Associate's degree in June, and now I'm back in
school for Network Security. I also work full-time which can put
some strain on my free time, but I'm getting it figured out.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being a pack mule (this is heavy, can you lift it?)
Having an opinion (on almost any subject)
Sarcasm and joking :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My size (6'4" & 250lbs). That's how I got the nicknames Ogre
and Shrek. Also because that's what happens when you make a
Romanian girl say "Moose & Squirrel" all the time... :D
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Mostly Science Fiction, but sometimes I like a historical book
(recently I read one where one of the FBI's top profiler's gave his
two cent's on famous crimes, like Lizzy Borden and Jack the
Ripper). Really interesting actually.
I'll stick with shows that are on right now. The Big Bang Theory,
How I Met Your Mother, Person of Interest, Real Time with Bill
Maher, Psych, Futurama and Spartacus. I also watch some anime. And
before you knock it, watch the first 2 episodes of Death Note and
tell me that it's not one of the most interesting premises ever.
The Princess Bride. Army of Darkness, BASEketball, Casino Royale,
Spaceballs, Dodgeball, Groundhog Day, Iron Man (I & II), Jay
& Silent Bob Strike Back, Spider-Man II and Before Sunrise.
Also, anything Rifftrax (same guys who did MST3K).
I like almost all types of food, but I'm not huge into vegetables.
Actually this list would be shorter if I just listed off the things
I don't like. :)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My family
2) My friends (who are also my family)
3) My cat
4) My laptop (I spoiled myself after graduation) :)
5) Food (& lots of it!)
6) My memories of Mikey (my cousin & best friend who passed
away, you'll always be with me little bro)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, the universe and everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching a movie or doing homework. Sometimes I've been coerced
into going out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't always do well with small talk. Sometimes I can't tell the
natural stopping point so it goes on for too long... :)
Other than that, I'll tell you almost anything if you ask.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to talk or are looking for a relationship and think I'm
interesting. Or cute. Cute works too. :) Also I really like it
sometimes when the woman initiates conversation. Just food for
