Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: A Song of Fire and Ice, The Count of Monte
Cristo, Animal Farm, Clancy, Cussler, Grisham and Patterson (though
I don't care for most of his recent ghost-written stuff).
Music: Country and Classic Rock are my favorites.
Specifically The Eagles, Muse, GNR, Aerosmith, AC/DC, The Who, ZBB,
Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, DMB, Daughtry, MCR, FOB, Jimmy
Buffett, and just about everything else.
TV: TopGear (UK; hands down favorite show), Dr
Who, HIMYM, Parks & Rec, Mad Men, The West Wing, Game of
Thrones, 24, Breaking Bad, True Detective. I got really into The
Americans last year, but Amazon won't let me watch season 3 for
Movies: Any of the Bond movies, The Aliens series,
Jurassic Park, Inglorious Basterds, the original Indiana Jones and
Star Wars movies, Argo, Interstellar, John Wick, Monty Python,
Food: Sushi, BBQ, fondue, a good steak; and I
could probably eat pizza every day. Thai, Indian and Chinese are
favorites too, though it's hard to find good Indian around here.
I've got a weak spot for food trucks, especially the Lobster Pound,
and The Big Cheese.
Whisky: The Balvenie, Lagavulin, Woodford Reserve,
Jameson, The Macallan, and Glenlivet. Like Ron Swanson, I enjoy
Scotch that's old enough to drink Scotch.
