Help your potential matches find common interests.
When I get the chance to read, I read to get away. I like fiction,
particularly about things that don't actually exist...fantasy, I
suppose: A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones), Harry Potter,
Hunger Games, Lord of the Rings, etc. I'm a bit of a nerd.
Something that hooks you to the point you have to choose between
getting sleep before work, or finding out what happens next. Give
me a physical book, though...haven't quite fell into the Kindle
phase yet. Something about actually turning a page...
As for movies, anything that makes me laugh is always a winner.
Always a good time for a comedy. My favorite movies are ones that
make you think. The kind of movie that you can't guess how it's
going to end halfway through the movie and even better are the ones
where there's room for debate on what really happened once it does
end. A few examples are Inception, Donnie Darko, The Prestige.
Also, there is never a bad time for a Disney/Pixar movie. Always
good, no matter how old you are.
I haven't gotten hooked on a lot of TV shows but my favorite is
definitely How I Met Your Mother.
I'm open to almost all music. It all really depends on my mood. I
guess you could label my main interest as "alternative," maybe? I
grew up with Linkin Park, Three Days Grace, Breaking Benjamin, Foo
Fighters, etc. which I still enjoy, but I've drifted more toward
different sounds like Mumford & Sons, Imagine Dragons,
Bastille...that kind of stuff, but I listen to everything.
Finally, food...I like food; that's about all there is to know.
I'll try anything but the best gems are when you find small
family-owned restaurants. Those always have the best
food...especially any small place that serves breakfast all day.
