Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm can't really capture myself in a few short paragraphs... But
there are a few strong themes. I'm a father. I'm divorced. I'm a
geek and a gamer. But don't try to reduce me to a label... life is
so much more complicated than that :)
and one of my favorite quotes about relationships...
Rob - Just shut up, please, I'm trying to explain, okay? That other
girl, or other women, whatever, I was thinking that they are just
fantasies, you know, and they always seem really great because
there are never any problems, and if there are they are cute
problems like we bought each other the same Christmas present or
she wants to go see a movie I've already seen, you know? And then I
come home and you and I have real problems and you don't want to
see the movie I wanna see, period. There's no lingerie...
Laura - I have lingerie!
Rob - Yes you do. You have great lingerie but you also have cotton
underwear that's been washed a thousand times and its hanging on
the thing and ... and they have it too just I don't have to see it
because it's not the fantasy ... do you understand? I'm tired of
the fantasy because it doesn't really exist and there are never
really any surprises and it never really...
Laura - Delivers?
Rob - Delivers. Right.
It captures that idea of a relationship that can never compare to
real life. Enjoying life to fullest isn't about lamenting for an
ideal relationship that doesn't exist, it's about being with the
people in your life right here and right now. It's about two people
walking down the same road and leaning on each other when there are
bumps in the road.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Although I majored in psychology, I found out that my true talent
is in computers, IT, tech support, etc. Yes, I even have a geeky
job. I'm fortunate to have a steady day job so I can be home at
night and the weekends for my kids.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I enjoy solving puzzles. That includes anything from a jigsaw
puzzle to persistent computer problems with no apparent root
I'm also a very good listener. Coming from the world of psychology,
I understand how important it is to vent. I am surprisingly good at
being patient with my kids. In fact, I'm usually pretty good at
making kids smile.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm short! Or perhaps people would notice that I'm reserved. I
don't open up to people right away.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I grew up reading fantasy fiction and I still enjoy it.
Most of the movies that catch and hold my attention are in the
fantasy and sci-fi genres. I definitely enjoy action thrill rides
and most comedy movies.
I have a long list of TV shows that I try (and mostly fail) to keep
up with and I've noticed a pattern of cop dramas in my list. I'm
currently watching Breaking Bad, HIMYM, and Continuum. I'm waiting
for new episodes of Newsroom, Game of Thrones, and Walking Dead to
be available somewhere besides cable.
Musical tastes really vary, but I listen to rock, techno and
ambient music the most.
Update: lately I've been listening to a lot of dubstep :)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My two kids
My internet connection
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...just about everything. I'm a deep thinker and I tend to ponder
all the little mysteries of life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I like playing card games, board games, watching movies with my
friends. However, I'm open to new things and I'll try most things
at least once.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I guess you'd have to ask me.... :P
