Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: For an English major it's always hard to choose, but here
goes: Jane Eyre, The Great Gatsby, David Copperfield, Never Let Me
Go, Wolf Hall, Devil in the White City.
Movies: My favorite movie is Dumb and Dumber. If you are not a fan
of the stupid humor in this movie, there's less than a one in a
million chance we could make things work. (Get it? Hah. Moving on.)
The other top 5 would probably be Goodfellas, Clue, Zoolander,
Amelie, and Clueless. And maybe Hocus Pocus too.
Shows: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Arrested Development, The
Wire, South Park, Absolutely Fabulous, Daily Show, Colbert Report,
and 30 Rock. And The History Channel, when they're showing shows
about history and not ice road fishermen and pawn shops.
Music: A random mix. I'm not super into music, but it's totally
fine if you are (that way at least one of us will have a better
idea of what to put on than the Justin Timberlake Pandora
Food: Pizza. Cereal. Not together.
