Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi I'm Rob, thanks for visiting my profile :-)
I like people to be sincere. I like to think I've got a decent
sense of humour but I don't like the passive-aggressive way people
sometimes behave under the guise of 'banter'. I don't like
machismo. Or arrogance, I don't understand it.
I believe people should be able to do anything they want as long as
it doesn't directly harm anyone else. I am aware of the irony
inherent in making that statement after listing complaints about
how others behave but I do really believe it - I might not like
someone else's choices, opinions, actions etc. but as long as they
aren't harming anyone pretty much anything is ok by me.
I love music, films and books and will happily chat about any and
all of these extensively. I’m also a big art fan and I like going
to galleries. I’m into culture and I love going to museums and the
like, don’t go to the theatre much but I think I’d quite like to. I
think I’m reasonably intelligent and I like good, interesting
I’m a bit of a geek, I love learning (especially history), I have
an interest in politics and philosophy, I watch documentaries and I
play the occasional computer game.
Oh and I love the natural world - trees, landscapes, seascapes as
well in fact, yeah all of that.
Aside from all of that the bits below and the various match
questions thingies provide a fairly accurate picture of me, though
there is more to me of course (as is the case with most
If you like what you see please do say hi :-)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I live in the centre of Birmingham, it's one of the most vibrant
and diverse places in Britain and I love it. I enjoy exploring what
the city has to offer with my mates and at some point I'd love to
do the same with someone special.
I've lived in the north, south and middle of England and been
fortunate enough to visit quite a few other countries (and would
love to visit more!)
I work for the NHS in Governance, it's mostly very boring and
frustrating, but it is also occasionally rewarding.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Conversation, in the right company.
Making people laugh, well, my mates anyway, so again in the right
company I guess :-)
I'm a decent cook, not sure about 'really good' but definitely
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Physically it's possibly my hair, it's really thick and can be...
unruly. Managed to get it mostly under control in recent years
My eyes are apparently fairly notable as well.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

You're open minded and tolerant.
You like intelligence and good conversation.
You don't hate geeks. I'm not into everything geeky and it's
certainly not all I am, but if you really hate sci-fi and games
you'll probably not be interested in me.
