My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I guess I could start by saying that my name is Rob. I am an eternal optimist, an unflinching idealist, a sentimental and hopeFUL romantic, and a person who believes in making the world a better place. My Myers-Briggs nails me down pretty damn accurately—I am an INFP also known as the Idealist, Dreamer, or Healer.

Some things in life I enjoy doing are reading, watching TV/movies, listening to music, learning new things, having board/card/video game nights with friends, watching sports (baseball, football, hockey, soccer), baking/cooking, volunteering, date nights at a local café or restaurant, bowling, billiards (even though I am horrible), star watching, going out to concerts/plays/shows, watching stand up acts, traveling, going to museums, seeing various historical or natural landmarks, light hikes in the woods, fireplaces/firepits/campfires, camping, fishing, lounging around at the beach or lake, being at one with nature, and staying involved in politics.

I think a person’s dream home says a lot about them. Far and away the “dream home” for me is a nice and cozy, sustainably built log cabin with a massive prow front window, walk around deck, gourmet chef’s kitchen, and central stone fireplace. It would be ideally situated on a property with significant acreage and icing on the cake would be for it to be near a forest, the mountains, a major water source such as a lake/river/ocean, or some combination of the three…That being said, a nice beachfront home with a view, a quaint historic home, an arts and craftsman bungalow, or a nice loft/condo is a high rise of a major city wouldn’t be bad either. Hey, One can dream, can’t they? Haha…Maybe at some point in the future…Dream home or not, I have a real desire to move out of South Central PA in the next few years…Destination Unknown…

I get that most people view talking politics on dating site as sketchy as best, but it is a HUGE part of who I am; anyone I date and eventually marry needs to be aware of its importance to me and ideally they would share a great many of the same beliefs. I am a registered Democrat that generally aligns with the liberal/progressive wing of the party on most domestic, economic, environmental, fiscal, and social issues--think of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. Foreign policy wise, I am a liberal hawk, an internationalist, a believer in diplomacy, a supporter of a strong military and a peace through strength platform, and yes, a supporter of humanitarian military intervention. There is lots of evil and tyranny in this world and I believe that those who have the ability to help and intercede, as the U.S. can, have a moral obligation to do so. It should also be noted that I am also an elected member of the York County Democratic Committee and quite active all politics whether international, federal, state, or local.

I would say that of all the issues I care about five generally rise to the top—environmental policy, equality and fairness concerns (economic, gender, LGBT, & racial), anti-poverty initiatives, foreign affairs, and protection of civil/human rights. I am a huge proponent of the Nordic model of the welfare state (or what Americans would call—socialism…GASP!) I stand in awe and amazement of the beauty that is nature and believe that the protection of the environment, its people, its plants and animals, and all of its natural systems that make up its amazing beauty is of the highest importance; not just for humanity’s sake but because I think it deserves to be revered, respected, and protected for what it is. I am a huge proponent of the “Deep Ecology” philosophy and movement. I believe in strengthening environmental protections, rapidly moving toward a 100% renewable energy economy, and trying to stave off the worse impacts climate change. I think the most powerful documents ever written are the United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights and its 4 sister documents that make up the International Bill of Human Rights. They are not perfect but how much better the world would be if we actually lived up to the ideals stated in those documents.

So what am I looking for? Personality is really the key for me. I want someone who has a sense of humor and is able to enjoy life; someone who is optimistic and positive; someone who has their own hopes and dreams for life; someone who cares about the environment and what we are leaving to the future generations; someone who values education and wants to learn about a variety of different things; someone who is a sports fan; someone who enjoys traveling when time and money allows; someone who shares my interests as it pertains to books, movies, music, and television; someone who shares and understands my general outlook, philosophies, and passions in life; and ultimately someone wants to make the world a better place in a meaningful way. It would be great to find someone who enjoys going out to a ballgame, a hike, star watching, a museum, a retreat, a comedy show, a game night with friends, or just a movie night between the two of us all the same. I am at the point in my life where I am ready to settle down, get married, and begin to enjoy life with the person I love. Though specifics can be discussed later, I know for certain that I want a family, of at least two children whether that is by natural means, adoption, or meeting someone who already has children. Suffice it to say, if you do not want children or are inclined against the idea, we are not a good match.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Presently, I am a full-time program coordinator for a local nonprofit managing a totally free income tax preparation service, financial education/coaching, and asset/wealth building program; I previously served the same organization through several AmeriCorps terms. Through this job, I have attained the designation of Enrolled Agent (for lack of a better term—“a tax specialist”) with unrestricted ability to represent taxpayers before the IRS (just like a CPA or Attorney). Education wise, I have a B.S. & M.S. in Organizational Leadership as well as an A.A. in Social Science. I am also presently working on gaining licensure as a real estate agent as well as slowly pursuing an alternative teacher certification. One thing with me is that I have some many interests and desires and as such I am not likely to have a traditional linear career path. Though it remains unlikely absent a move to a more liberal friendly area, a dream of mine would be to eventually run for political office, specifically for local office like city council or county commissioner, state legislature, and maybe even to the U.S. House of Representatives.

"We're for freedom of speech everywhere. We're for freedom to worship everywhere. We're for freedom to learn... for everybody. And because in our time, you can build a bomb in your country and bring it to my country, what goes on in your country is very much my business. And so we are for freedom from tyranny, everywhere, whether in the guise of political oppression, Toby, or economic slavery, Josh, or religious fanaticism, C.J. That most fundamental idea cannot be met with merely our support. It has to be met with our strength. Diplomatically, economically, materially.

"What did liberals do that was so offensive to the Republican Party? I'll tell you what they did. Liberals got women the right to vote. Liberals got African-Americans the right to vote. Liberals created Social Security and lifted millions of elderly people out of poverty. Liberals ended segregation. Liberals passed the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act. Liberals created Medicare. Liberals passed the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act. What did Conservatives do? They opposed them on every one of those things, every one. So when you try to hurl that label at my feet, 'Liberal,' as if it were something to be ashamed of, something dirty, something to run away from, it won't work, Senator, because I will pick up that label and I will wear it as a badge of honor." President Santos, The West Wing

“In science it often happens that scientists say, "You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken," and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.” – Carl Sagan

"There's a reason you separate military and the police. One fights the enemies of the state, the other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people." Commander William Adama, Battlestar Gallactica

Only when the last river has been poisoned,

"Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration." – Abraham Lincoln

It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is thus shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” – RFK

“There are people in every time and every land who want to stop history in its tracks.

“I believe that, as long as there is plenty, poverty is evil.” – RFK

“What do our opponents mean when they apply to us the label “Liberal?” If by “Liberal” they mean, as they want people to believe, someone who is soft in his policies abroad, who is against local government, and who is unconcerned with the taxpayer's dollar, then ... we are not that kind of “Liberal.” But if by a “Liberal” they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a “Liberal,” then I'm proud to say I'm a “Liberal”. – JFK
