Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Okay, so here's the part where I try to convince you that checking
me out was probably the best decision you've made. Ever.
I'm Rob. I've been back in Denver for a year now. Before that,
Wyoming. I was a sailor once. I never spent any time on a boat.
Lived in Japan for four years. No, I didn't learn much of the
language. Yes, 36 year-old Rob does want to build a time machine,
go back, and have a chat with 25 year-old Rob about that.
Personality-wise, my Myers-Briggs letters are INFJ. If you're not
down with MB, that's cool. I'm not totally sure I'm convinced
I guess some things I do in my spare time might be considered a
little "square". Think computer-based activities. I've totally
thrown 20-sided dice in anger. I think spaceships and robots are
cool. See that picture where I'm sipping the beer? I'm wearing a
full set of storm trooper armor that I constructed out of cardboard
and duct tape. Pretty cool, right?
Ahem! Alpha male shit! yeahhh... uhhhhh... Let's see.... I can
totally drive a forklift. Also, I'm happy to report that every
single time I've wielded a chainsaw nothing scary has happened!
That's a plus, right? I spent way too much time in the boy scouts
as a lad, so I suppose I have skills in things like; pitching
tents, reading maps, using a compass, starting fires, and helping
old ladies cross the street.
So last year I got a cat. Not more than one like that stinky
sidebar likes to imply with it's plural expressions. I wasn't
really in the market, but apparently if you stand around in one
place long enough, a cat in need of a friend will find you.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Wrangling video data for the man.
Saving up for a real couch.
Trying to teach myself to play the guitar. The climb up Mt.
Rockyourfaceoff is going slower than I'd like.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening. Saving money. Staying up late. Sleeping in. Tact.
Messing around with Adobe products (software, not mud). Breaking
computers. Self-deprecation. Napping. Trivia-oriented anything.
I'm getting better at taking electronic-type stuff apart. I've
performed warranty-voiding repairs on my Playstation successfully
on two separate occasions. On the flip side; I also punctured the
fuser on the office laser printer last year while clearing a paper
jam, effectively rendering it useless, so you might say that
electronic-type stuff and me have a ways to go relationship-wise.
The first things people usually notice about me

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Hey, I've read some of those. Sci-fi is fun. Remember that
one time when you were reading the "about me" section, and I said
something about thinking robots and space ships were cool? Ahhh
Movies: Anything with spaceships, explosions, robots, or all of the
above. I guess I should list some that I think are neat, right? The
Shawshank Redemption, Aliens, Eternal sunshine of the Spotless
Mind, Heat, The Lives of Others, Run Lola Run, Predator, Little
Children, 2001, Ghostbusters, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, I think you
get the idea. The truth is; I love movies, I used to want to make
them. There's a good chance I've seen your favorite, and I might
even have an opinion about it. There's really only one way to find
Shows: You know, they typical stuff everybody's into these days;
the ones on HBO and the ones on AMC. Frontline. Those shows on
Discovery where you watch people bumble around while digging for
gold. Car shows, which is odd considering I've never turned a
wrench on anything with pistons. I think I might just be mesmerized
by smooth and shiny things.
Music? Primarily rock. I guess this is the part where I list a few
bands so you can quietly judge my plebeian taste in music. Here
goes: Radiohead, Queens of the Stone Age, Failure, Deftones, NIN.
There. Judge away. I've been appreciating Tears for Fears a lot
more lately. Those guys rule.
Food: Wait, am I supposed to list a bunch of ethnic varieties here?
What if I said all of them? Would it blow your mind if I said that
I'm a fan of Japanese food, but not sushi?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Hot water
2. My computer
3. Disposable income
4. Steve Jobs will be rolling over in his grave to hide the boner
I'm about to give him, but my iphone makes a lot of things pretty
5. Free time. You know, the kind where nothing's scheduled, and you
can do whatever you want? That.
6. Uhhhh, I need to think about this one. I know. I'm working on
it. You should probably check back on a regular basis to make sure
I get this section honed to the crisp razor-sharpness we both know
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What's next. How nice it's going to feel when I'm clicking through
on that final student loan payment. Designing a cool, yet
space-efficient house. How to scrape together the cash necessary to
build that house. What's happening in the world. Wondering if we,
as a species will ever make it to the point of interstellar travel.
Lamenting the fact that I probably won't be alive for that.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Oh, you know, the typical single male Friday stuff: Friends. Beers.
An attempt at socializing with the opposite sex. Sleep. A movie.
Dicking around on my computer. Choose two or three of those and
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It's not that I think Wes Anderson's a hack or anything, I'm just
not in love with his movies. I realize them's fightin' words in
some circles. Especially 'round these parts. No, I'm not taking it

out that switching to two spaces could end world hunger or
