My self-summary
Hi. I'm James and I can never work out quite what i am supposed to write in boxes like this... I'm an easy-going kind of guy and I'm looking to meet some new people and see where it goes from there.
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a Software Engineer in the centre of Bristol. Outside of that I like playing games (video games or board games), going to the cinema as often as I can and hanging out with my friends.
I’m really good at
Procrastinating? If something is worth doing its worth putting off doing until the last possible moment.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well I'm a fairly big guy so I'm pretty hard to miss. Also people seem to comment on my hair a lot... Which is weird.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I could probably go on forever with this... So, short answer: if it could be considered 'nerdy' I'm either already into it or intrigued by it and would like to learn more about it.

Long answer: I love to read but don't seem to do as much of it as I would like. I tend to read a lot of Sci-fi/ fantasy stuff. Some of my favourites being the Song of Ice and Fire series by George R R Martin, The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss, The Dark Tower series by Stephen King and The Expanse Saga by James S A Corey.
As for movies I always find it super hard to pick favourites because it's all dependant on what I feel like watching at the time. If I had to pick a top 3 I'd say Serenity, WALL-E and Fight Club. I'm also a sucker for a good cheesy horror flick. My favourite TV shows at the moment are probably Firefly (always), Game of Thrones, The Wire, The Walking Dead, Archer and Its Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Musically I prefer stuff more on the rock/ metal side of things but get a few drinks in me and I'll air-guitar and dance around like a mad man to most things (particularly cheesy 80s pop for some reason). My 3 favourite bands at the moment are Mastodon, Porcupine Tree and Iron Maiden.
Six things I could never do without
Friends and Family
Something great to read
Something great to watch
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Plans for the future. I have finally found a job that I actually enjoy and could see myself making a career out of. I'd like to move out and get my own place at some point in the next year or so.

There is also generally some song or another stuck in my head driving me slowly mad.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably sat around somewhere with friends. Either having a meal or a drink or just sat in someone's house playing board games or video games.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not the most confident person in the world, I can be a bit shy at first but it doesn't take me long at all to open up once I get chatting to someone.
You should message me if
You fancy a chat. Talking to new people is always fun.
The two of us
