Help your potential matches find common interests.
Way too many to list all of them...
Books: Anything by Terry Brooks, Terry Goodkind, Robert Jordan, and
Stephen King. Just read the Song of Fire & Ice series by George
R. R. Martin, as well as the Sandman graphic novels by Neil Gaiman.
I'm also a fan of philosophy and ethics books.
Movies: Anything by Kevin Smith and Christopher Nolan. I minored in
Film, so it would be easier to talk about films that I don't like.
A few recent favorites off the top of my head: Avengers, Men in
Black III, Snow White & the Huntsman, Rock of Ages, Amazing
Spider-man, Dark Knight Rises, Les Miserables, Identity Thief,
Excision, Total Recall, Expendables 2, Prometheus, Looper, Perks of
Being a Wallflower, and Silver Linings Playbook. My favorite genres
are Horror and Comedy, but I will seriously watch almost anything.
Yes, I even like *some* "chick flicks".
TV: House, How I Met Your Mother, Supernatural, Game of Thrones,
True Blood, Dead Like Me, New Girl, Lost Girl, Sherlock, Jekyll,
American Horror Story, Once Upon a Time, Arrow, Secret Circle
(what, it was the guilty pleasure show I allowed myself).
Music: Mostly Rock & Pop, but I'll listen to a little bit of
Food: I could eat fried rice every day for the rest of my life. A
really good pizza is also a quick way to my heart.
