Help your potential matches find common interests.
In terms of books, I enjoy novels by Patricia Briggs, and Jennifer
Estep, although I haven't read much of her works. Pretty much
anything sci-fi or fantasy will perk my interest though.
I love cheesy action movies and CGI based movies! But I will always
hold a special place in my heart for The Princess Bride :)
(almost all Pixar movies, how to train your dragon, Firefly,
Serenity, Star trek, Van Helsing, Heat, The Italian Job, True Lies,
Dark knight, Iron Man 1&2, X-men)
I have become a bit of an anime addict over the past couple years,
and I'm always on the lookout for really well done series.
(One piece, Bleach, Gurren Lagann, Durarara!!, Ga-Rei-Zero, Full
Metal Alchemist, Summer Wars, Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away,
Mononoke Hime, Cowboy Bebop)
I like most music, and especially good instrumental tracks with a
great groove to them. I listen to a lot of electronic, house,
dubstep, and some really weird one-off stuff now and again.
(Skrillex, Nine Inch Nails, Apocalyptica, Hybrid, Infected
Mushroom, System of a Down, Juno Reactor, Break of Reality)
My two favorite kinds of food are Italian and Mexican, with Chinese
and American locked in mortal combat for third place :)
