My self-summary
I'm James.

Sometimes I worry telling too much in a profile makes actually talking or meeting a little awkward. What is there to talk about if we've already covered it all?

I am an introvert and perfectly fine with that. I'm also a pretty big nerd, and equally fine with that.

I'm a weird mix of very serious, and retardedly silly, depending on sleep/day/time/mood and who I'm with. I like finding people I can be silly/sarcastic/witty with.

I also consistently get INTJ on the MBTI, and quite think it suits me.

And yeah, I'm playing Pokemon Go just as much as everyone else right now.

That's enough for the basics, right?
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated with a BA in Psychology, but like a lot of other people I'm not exactly using it to get anywhere at the moment.

I've spent a lot of time working on myself the past few years, and I've gotten to the point where (with a few small exceptions) I'm very happy with who I am.
I’m really good at
I really like working with my hands. Making, building, fixing, etc. I've especially been learning to work on my car recently, but when I need anything else fixed, I try to do it myself.

I'm also quite excellent at explaining things far too much, and surviving mock zombie apocalypses until the last moment.
The first things people usually notice about me
Nobody ever deems it necessary to divulge their first impressions of me, but historically I've been rather quiet in new encounters.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Authors: Primarily science fiction. Frank Herbert, George R R Martin, Isaac Asimov, Larry Niven, Orson Scott Card, Frederik Pohl. I've read Tolkein, but he wasn't my favorite.

I recently went through a period of no reading, but finishing a long set aside book reminded me how much I enjoy it, so I need more suggestions for books.

Movies: Scifi stuff. Star Trek tickles that fancy pretty well. Interstellar was an immediate favorite as well. Other stuff too. Action movies if they have a reasonably substantive plot. Various other movies in any genre that focus on smart or engrossing plots
TV: Rick and Morty, duhhhhh. Again, Star Trek. There are plenty of others, but who wants to read a giant list? Just ask if you want to know.
Anime: (I guess it deserves its own list): Neon Genesis Evangelion and Code Geass are my current favorites. Knights of Sidonia is really good too. Plenty of Gundam, but not all incarnations of it are created equal. Just about everything is superior to Gundam Seed.
Music: I don't really like happy sounding music. I just can't get into it.
I do like metal, and instrumental stuff, but my musical tastes do not define me.
Food: Salty things. Sweet things. Not spicy. Specifics don't really matter. I am an omnivore.
Games: I am a slightly less than avid, but slightly more than casual gamer. I just finished Bastion, and recently finished The Stanley Parable, and I like Shadow of the Colossus. I make a point of avoiding MMOs and otherwise open-ended games. A game needs to end at some point. Though I will play an online game if it involves giant robots or space ships. That's why I'm currently pretty good at Fractured Space. They're my weaknesses.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Philosophy, the world, the state of things, myself (introspection), my hobbies, rights, liberties, science, logic, religion, the future...things like that.

Might not be the right section for this, but I consider myself an agnostic atheist (I don't know for sure whether there is a god, but I don't believe there is one). I used to be very combative with religious people, but my zeal has been tempered with time and apathy, so I no longer spend large amounts of time brooding over matters of religion. I'm happy to let them be, as long as they see fit to return the favor, but when confronted by them, I have no qualms sharing my opinions.

I'm also the kind of person that thinks the world would be made better by making everyone smarter, instead of nicer.
On a typical Friday night I am
Home, watching stuff, looking at dumb stuff on the Internet, playing video games, reading, building models, etc. Sometimes doing those same things, but with one or two close friends. I guess I do go out on occasion.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hm. Nothing of import, or any interest. Things are either private or not for me, not any more or less so, and I don't make anything private unless it's important.
You should message me if
I don't send messages first here very often anymore. Honestly, I guess I'm kind of tired of the pressure involved. So in exchange let me take off some of the pressure: I always reply, so go ahead and send a message if you feel like it.

Also, I'm not here to make new friends and talk for months and months. I'm here to meet people, and honestly I find it hard to text/message someone for a long time if I've never met them. I'm not looking for something casual, and I think it's incredibly important to get to know just about every aspect about a significant other, I just think it's not really easy, if even possible, to do online. Not for me, at least. So it would be nice to hear from women who actually want to meet in person.
