I'm Jack. If you think you've been here before, this account went by the username 'T-900' until early 2013, a relic of my early teens - I've had this account for a long, long time >.>
And in that time I've met some truly lovely people - thus my absolute absence of grudging OkC the $10 I threw them for a temporary A-List subscription so I could update my username. Thank you, staffrobot <3
As I may have already mentioned, I'm Jack.
Or to pay a little fan-service to a favoured publication, while being technically correct, I am Jack's Outdated Profile. I have followed this format for some years, across numerous abortive attempts at a coherent update, forever dogged by the issue that the profile isn't *quite* inaccurate enough to merit a meaningful rewrite, while being so inaccurate it frustrates me.
I suppose I do change, subtly, over a long enough period.
I am a 2̶0̶ 2̶1̶ ̶2̶2̶ ̶2̶3̶ 24! year-old male living in South Wales doing very little, by common standards, and quite enjoying it by my own - or I was, around the period of the initial struck-out numbers, but have since become woefully depressive. More acedic than depressive - acedia, the condition of sinful apathy, emptiness of spirit, and absence of physical activity. It's dreadful.
Imagine being on SSRI antidepressants without actually being on any anti-depressants. I am a zombie, striving ever onward for live after death, trying to do what I can while not often feeling very much. Psychologically interesting but hell to live with - I've no shame about it and would prefer to be candid about my state of mind with those who may consider contacting me. Human contact and outgoing activities enliven me and awaken my spirit, and I suspect may be the only true cure for the state I've sunken into these past few years - so I am eager to strive on, using the internet to make more contacts and discover more opportunities to learn/create/explore.
My interests include reading, film, computer gaming, travelling, exploring ruins, writing, design, drawing, painting, photography, photomanipulation, unusual forms of carving, philosophy, psychology (both should be a standard of human knowledge, not a speciality for academics!), and well... Everything, frankly. Everything except professional sport, reality television and cars. Humans fascinate me, but I generally tend to term close friends something more. Humanity has bad connotations. I like to study people, in mind and body, mutually exploring and experimenting with them - mind, body, and soul.
My beliefs are many and contradictive, as is the nature of our species, and my ambitions include transcending the limitations of said species. Human was so Age of Pisces. It's time to move on - interface with technology and aspire beyond petty post-ape hormone-beasts, breeding and consuming without restraint.
I have approximately no tolerance whatsoever for stupidity, and I discriminate against the black, white and green indiscriminately and equally - I also hate women, though a little less than I hate men. Men are just awful, really.
No harm, though; I'm widely considered an honourary woman, to paraphrase several independent observers 'A lesbian with a cock'.
The best parts of both, I hope. How much higher could anyone aspire?
*glances up* Oh dear, this is supposed to be a summary. Well..
Welsh male seeking intelligent life in the universe, discriminates indiscriminately, intolerant of most things human, enjoys all manner of creativity and exploration, dangerously open-minded, likes the colour red more than he should, spends far too much time gaming or running around with toy guns/swords being silly. Or dressed up as a zombie, being absolutely serious. No, in truth, I am also a silly zombie.
I also talk far too much, but speak so quickly it doesn't matter. Here, it really depends upon how quickly you can read.
Oh, one small note I felt compelled to add; I'm listed as straight and looking for 'Girls who like Guys' by the OkC systems but as I'm not here looking for sex or relationships (not that intimacy isn't enjoyed, I'm just not desperate), I'm very happy to hear from anyone, plumbing quite irrelevant. I have no interest in distinguishing gender, though I don't tend to be attracted to men.
I am restless, dangerous, and strawberry-flavoured. This was once part of the profile's basic structure, but when OkCupid removed the 'three things that summarise you', they seem to have put those three things at the end of your personal summary. Believing it now as I did then, I will leave it here.
