Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books, I tend to find an author I like and read everything they've
written. Clancy, Ludlum, Patterson, Child, Reich, Tennenbaum, etc.
The list is endless.
Movies, I love action movies, comic book movies, romantic comedies
(have to see something on a date), Sci Fi, all the block busters.
I'll go out for them. I do watch most of the drama's that come out,
but I view them at home on BluRay.
Music, anything live in a small venue works for me. My ipod has a
fair amount of Jazz, Rock (mostly alternative or current), mixed in
with some old Motown and Funk. I warm up for soccer games listening
to Billy Idol :)
Food, I truly like almost any cuisine and have travelled the world
and tried many. I grew up on the shore and lived in Newport RI for
a while so Seafood is by far my favorite.
