Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Anything Stephen King. He's had some duds, but I really
enjoy his writing style. Also Michael Connelly. I also really liked
The Great Gatsby. But if you asked me what it was about, I'd say
it's about a bunch of parties and drinking. (I had to read it for
my AP Lit class in high school. So I sped read it in a day. I
should probably re-read it...) Also the Harry Potter series.
Music: Anything, ANYTHING, but new rap and country. I listen to
some 90's rap. However my ipod is mainly playing alternative
rock/punk rock. Or 80's metal/rock. You just can't beat the classic
folks. My favorite band is Say Anything. Haven't heard of them?
Look them up. I can't recommend them enough.
Movies: Sooooo many. Top five?
1. Fight Club
2. Sin City
3. All of the Batmans (seriously, the old school ones and Nolan's
4. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
5. The original Evil Dead (that one is a recent discovery, and it
is SOO good.)
Shows: Holy crap that's a list. Star Trek, Twilight Zone, American
Horror Story, The Office, Malcolm in the Middle (but like, the
first two seasons), Breaking Bad (don't you spoil the fifth season
for me internets!), Johnny Bravo, Dexter's Lab, Courage the
Cowardly Dog. Seriously. So many.
Food: Pizza. And it's like "oh who doesn't enjoy pizza?" But
seriously, I eat a lot of pizza. Like...twice or more a week.
