Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: A lot of non fiction, depending on the topic. The history of
comic books as a medium is fascinating, as well as nuclear history.
Kinda helps that I grew up 2 miles from a nuclear plant. The last
two books I read were the latest Game of Thrones book and Starship
Troopers(which is boring as hell, and nothing like the movie)
Comics: I'm a huge comic geek, but I'm not going to use
pretentious, self-absorbed jargon like "graphic fiction". They're
comic books. I have enough to open a small store, but I have no
interest in selling. Chances are, you name it, I've read it, know
about it, call tell you about it, etc...
Movies: Name a movie, and if I've seen it, I'll give you my take on
it. Some of my favorites are directed by Richard Kelly, David
Lynch, Scorsese, the Coen Brothers, Tarrantino and Kubrick. I <3
The Big Lebowski! I like all sorts of movies, and yes, for the
right gal, I'll put up with chick flicks, though I might make fun
of them as much as I do my bad 80s action movie collection.
TV: Game of Thrones, It's Always Sunny, Tosh.0, Rick and Morty,
Archer, American Horror Story, Curb your Enthusiasm, Futurama,
Californication, Arrow, Flash, The Walking Dead, Dr. Who, and South
Park. I used to be into anime, but recently I've been watching DBZ
Kai and Attack On Titan, brings back some memories.
Music: I'm not a music guy, I like a bit of everything, mostly
classic rock from the 70's, everything 80's, 90's alt-rock and
rock. Bowie is awesome, I love the Ramones. I get laughs from
comical/awkward music like the Lonely Island, Hasselhoff and
Shatner. Campy montage music is fun too. I'm not too big on rap,
hip-hop and country, I used to listen to Q101 a lot.
Food: I love the spicy and exotic, Indian and Thai, jambalaya. At
the same time I hate mayo, mushrooms, ranch sauce and sour cream. I
love pizza, but I keep it simple with pepperoni. And I only eat
meat from animals. And occasionally fake meat.
