My self-summary
Not really sure why I'm trying this again. I guess I'm just stubborn and persistent. I just know there's somebody out there who I can click with and come out with at least a really awesome friend and it's going to take saying the right thing at the right time to kick that off. Just a little about me, I'm really fond of reading, writing, videogames, and eating just about any kind of food you can think of (my favorite being Padd Thai and Sushi.)

I am divorced, thankfully with no kids through her. We just never connected on any level or shared any interests, so it ended just shy of 5 years. Unfortunately, because of the divorce, I ended up taking on all of her incurred debt along with my own expenses as a bargain in exchange for a simple attorney-less divorce procedure, so I'm currently living with my parents until I can I can resolve the issue and find a roommate or get my own place again. I'm working a full time job in the mornings in a warehouse shipping department. It's not glorious, but it pays the bills.

I'm certainly not flawless by any means. I'm unbelievably meek and timid, I'm definitely not some gorgeous underwear model, and I'm not nearly as active and sociable as I would like to be. I always have something that needs improving and I'm willing to work on it when I have the incentive and the drive to push forward. I also have infrequent panic attacks, something that has been suggested as being caused by mental anxiety.

Fortunately, in exchange for these flaws I'm reward with a very loyal and trusting personality. I genuinely enjoy many of the things most guys hate about relationships (like shopping and talking) while I hate many of the things guys enjoy about them (like sex.) Despite my shy nature, I do open up around people I'm familiar with and at that point all bets are off. I love cussing, I love dark humour, & I love off-color jokes, puns, and disgusting limericks.

According to the site posted below, I rate as an INFJ in the Myers Briggs Personality test. According to it:

"INFJs are gentle, caring, complex and highly intuitive individuals. Artistic and creative, they live in a world of hidden meanings and possibilities. Only one percent of the population has an INFJ Personality Type, making it the most rare of all the types.

The INFJ is as genuinely warm as they are complex. INFJs hold a special place in the heart of people who they are close to, who are able to see their special gifts and depth of caring. INFJs are concerned for people's feelings, and try to be gentle to avoid hurting anyone. They are very sensitive to conflict, and cannot tolerate it very well. Situations which are charged with conflict may drive the normally peaceful INFJ into a state of agitation or charged anger. They may tend to internalize conflict into their bodies, and experience health problems when under a lot of stress."
What I’m doing with my life
Honestly, just waiting for it to end. There are millions of bizarre ways to die in the world and countless numbers of people die everyday, so I'm just kind of sitting around curious and waiting to see what gets me and when it'll happen. Doesn't mean I don't still enjoy myself in life though. I still try to enjoy the food and company that life provides in the meantime.
I’m really good at
writing. Creating my own fictional worlds is my biggest passion and I love the creations I come up with and the inspirations that I draw them from. Writing is like playing God. I have the power to give life and I have the power to take it away. I can make people happy or I can abuse them relentlessly. It's all up to my mind.
The first things people usually notice about me
As my best friend once told me, my best and most noticeable trait is that, despite the atrocities of the world today, I haven't let it get me down. Which isn't completely true as I do combat my depression on a regular basis, but I'm still energetic and excitable and I try to see the good in everybody and everything.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Ender's Game, Harry Potter, and Jurassic Park are my favorite book series of all time, though I try to read a wide variety of different series.

Movies: I love Marvel Movies, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Pixar Movies (except Cars for some reason) and a lot of Chick Flicks and Sci-Fi films that touch on controversial and philosophical issues. My favorite movies are Jurassic Park, Memoirs of A Geisha, Perks of Being A Wallflower, Wall-E, Zootopia, and Pitch Black.

Shows: Really big Walking Dead fan. Also love New Girl, Last Man Standing, Breaking Bad, The Misfits, & Agents of SHIELD. I also love Anime like Dragonball, Trigun, and Deathnote, though I don't watch as much anime now as I used to. Even older American Cartoons like Courage the Cowardly Dog, Samurai Jack, Megas XLR, and Reboot were amazing.

Music: I love most modern rock and classic metal, though I really have a thing for 90's and 00's rock lately. I also enjoy small amounts of rap here and there, but mostly the classics. I prefer to listen to Eminem, Snoop Dog, and Tupac than today's garbage like Drake and Kanye. My favorite artists are Five Finger Death Punch, Breaking Benjamin, Serj Tankian, Eminem, & Fort Minor.

Food: Asian food. Live it. Like it. Love it. If you promise me Padd Thai or Japanese Sushi, I'll love you forever :D

Games: I'm mostly a single player gamer. I mainly play Halo, Elder Scrolls, Mass Effect, Minecraft, though that's definitely only the tip of the iceberg for my collection. Most people won't recognize the games I play by name.
The six things I could never do without
Coca-Cola (I mostly drink Sprite, now, but Coke is still an important part of my history.)
Science Fiction
Air Conditioning
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why I'm so awkward around other people and why I can't seem to get rid of the timidness. Also spend a lot of time worrying about the state of the world and the things we could do to improve it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably on the internet browsing Reddit or on my Xbox chatting with one of the few friends I still speak to. Wishing I had more personality and a better social life than a wet paper towel.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like it when women have the courage to make the first move. Messaging first, asking out on a date, and even marriage proposal isn't something that should always be left to the guy, especially since a lot of guys like myself are completely clueless and terrible at seeing the signs (I imagine there are 2 or 3 girls I could've asked out in my lifetime who would've said yes, but I didn't and the opportunity passed.)
You should message me if
Technically I think everybody should message me. You never know who you'll find on the other end of the keyboard and no profile can truly convey one's personality and nature. I suppose it's fair to put some stipulations on it, though.

I probably won't get along with anybody who's a huge sports fan as I have no interest in any sporting events and I'm more likely to get along with somebody who enjoys playing videogames, though it doesn't rule you out if you don't.

I realize my profile says I'm seeking short or long-term relationships, but that's not entirely true. I'm not willing to rule out the possibility if I'm really comfortable around somebody, but I just don't think I'm fit for a relationship right now with my self-esteem and confidence issues. I don't know if I'll ever trust myself to be in a relationship again and I'm afraid I'll only end up hurting you or wasting your time if I try to be anything more than a friend right now.
