My self-summary
I was once described as a riddle wrapped in an enigma, I have old fashioned values (I believe in fair play, honesty, courtesy, and keeping your word), but at the same time I have quite a modern outlook (I value freedom of expression, I don't hold with racial, religious or sexual prejudice, and I don't have any preconceived ideas about gender based roles), I also firmly believe that self praise is no recommendation (so I'm really bad at this sort of thing).
Getting me to talk about myself is a little like pulling teeth, but if you ask me specific questions, I'm more than happy to answer pretty much anything.

My friends tell me I can be very witty, I generally find that's only the case when I don't try too hard (at least that when they laugh the most). I have a somewhat dry/sarcastic sense of humour which sometimes teeters on the edge of the surreal.

I like to think of myself as a realist (but I know some people would consider me a pessimist), but even when things go wrong I can often find a sort of ironic, grim amusement from it. I'm fine with optimists, unless they constantly try to infect me with unrealistic happiness, I'd much rather they just (humorously) took the piss out me, or make fun of the situation, much more likely to make me smile, that saying "Cheer up, it may never happen."

I've never really been the life and soul of, well pretty much anything really, I'm a bit of an introvert, I find large social group to be exhausting, and I tend blend into the background, but I do like to spend time with good friends and have long rambling conversations that when you reach a natural pause, you sometimes wonder how the heck you ended up talking that. I know tons of useless information, unfortunately because it's useless, it's not particularly useful in pub quizzes (darn it all)
What I’m doing with my life
While I'm looking for my better half, I'd be happy to find some interesting people to either talk to online, or maybe meet in person.
I’m really good at
Excel formulas, Self Deprecation
The first things people usually notice about me
My complete disinterest in all things fashionable
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I really like the 'Culture' books by Iain M Banks, but I like most Sci-Fi and Fantasy providing it has a coherent story (preferably with some decent character development).
I also like the work of Douglas Adams and Terry Prattchet.

Movies: I like movies which make you think, I'm a big sucker for movies which start "in media res", but a high octane action movies can also be good providing it doesn't try to take themselves seriously and/or rely on the "star power" of the main actor(s)

Shows: I like Star Trek (TNG & DS9, Voyager was sometimes okay, Enterprise was meh until the final series), Scrubs is hilarious, I enjoyed most of Star Gate SG1. I'll give anything by Joss Whedon a try (loved Firefly).

Music: Hard to say, I don't generally listen to much but if I hear it I like a bit rock/metal music (not thrash metal though), or classical. I really can't be doing with Rap music though...

Food: Not really into spicey foods, I'm a complete spice wimp, if it's hotter than black pepper, I probably won't like it.
The six things I could never do without
As it says in the movie Fight Club "The things you own, end up owning you."
I could live without pretty much everything if I had to, but I would miss my computer.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Far too many things to even begin a list
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends, doing pen & paper roleplaying games.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sometimes think life is a game to which everyone else knows the rules, and I either lost my copy or never came with a set

You want a kind, considerate person who tries his hardest to be the best person he can be. If you like the things I like, that would be a big plus.
