Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Mostly Manga and Comic Books, but I find myself getting
sucked into a novel from time to time. I love The Way of Shadows by
Brent Weeks, The Dark Ground Trilogy by Gillian Cross, Jojo's
Bizarre Adventure by Hirohiko Araki, Fullmetal Alchemist by Hiromu
Arakawa, and any comic book with dark undertones (Batman or
Hellblazer, for example).
Movies: I like Sci-fi, horror movies, psychological thrillers, or
any combination of the three. I love movies that make you think.
Some of my favorites include Donnie Darko, The Nightmare before
Christmas, the first 2 Terminator movies, The Matrix, and pretty
much any movie with zombies, Batman, or random humor.
Shows: The Daily Show (because I refuse to watch regular news), Mad
Men, It's Always Sunny in Philidelphia, Workaholics, Dexter, The
Walking Dead, Supernatural, Adventure Time, South Park, Family Guy,
Futurama, The Simpsons, Regular Show, and if you haven't noticed by
the shirt I'm wearing in my pic, Invader Zim. Need to start
watching Doctor Who - heard it was amazing.
Music: This list can go on forever. I listen to everything from
country to rap, techno to J-pop. The music I'm not really a fan of
is mainstream (c)rap. Some of my favorites are Avenged Sevenfold,
Slipknot, All That Remains, Maximum the Hormone, Pantera, Eminem,
Yousei Teikoku, Breaking Benjamin, BoA, Disturbed, Bullet for my
Valentine, A Perfect Circle, Escape the Fate, etc.
Food: I'm a steak and potatoes kind of guy. Oh, and did I mention
that I love to cook?
