My self-summary
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 onto me.

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 "awww". :)

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 me. :D

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 time?

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
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
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
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
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
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
Life, the universe and everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching a movie or doing homework. Sometimes I've been coerced into going out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
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
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 thought. :D
