Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - I sadly don't read nearly as much as I used to. I tend to
start a lot of books but end up not finishing them. Recently I read
the first two segments of Cloud Atlas which I enjoyed and the first
third of Heart of Darkness which I also enjoyed. I have Blood
Meridian sitting on my shelf unopened. I'll get to it
Movies - I'm a huge movie fan. In 2012 my favorite film was
Lincoln. Daniel Day Lewis is outstanding. During 2013 I didn't see
as many movies as I'd like and my favorite currently would be
Gravity and I thought Frozen was a great return to form for Disney.
In 2014 I was blown away by The Imitation Game and this year (2015)
my top film has to be Inside Out from Pixar. As for all time
favorites, I'd go with A Clockwork Orange, American Beauty, Road to
Perdition, Pan's Labyrinth, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, The Dark
Knight, City of Lost Children, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind,
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Grave of the Fireflies, Wall
E, Memento, Titanic, The Motorcycle Diaries, Into The Wild, and
many more. I'm an animation lover. Everything from Disney, to
anime, to Eastern European stop motion, to Looney Tunes.
TV - Super hero shows are kind of my thing. Along with the Ludocast
I co-host a semi-seasonal Super Hero Show titled S4. So I watch
Agents of SHIELD, Arrow, The Flash, Daredevil, Gotham, Constantine,
Agent Carter and so on. I plan on watching Legends of Tomorrow in
the Fall and boycotting the sexist trash that is Supergirl.
Music - I'll listen to most any genre. I enjoy a ton of different
bands and styles from pop fluff like Katy Perry, to Rap like
Eminem, to boy bands like The Backstreet Boys, to classic rock like
Simon and Garfunkel, to techno like Basshunter, to more indie stuff
like Bright Eyes. Pretty much anything goes on that front.
Food - I love food. I enjoy creative food. Something with effort
put into it. I love everything from cheeseburgers at Five Guys to
the top places in Chicago and New York.
EDIT: Saw some people put their favorite games here so I thought I
would add that as well
Games - Half Life 2, Braid, Journey, Limbo, Bioshock, Mass Effect
trilogy, The Last of Us, Gone Home, The Witcher series, Counter
Strike, Prince of Persia, Heroes of Might and Magic, Super Mario
Brothers, Sonic the Hedgehog, Gears of War, Uncharted, Sly Cooper,
Resistance, Ratchet and Clank, Beyond Good and Evil, Psychonauts,
Metal Gear Solid, Devil May Cry, Ninja Gaiden, Bayonetta, Portal,
God of War, Flower, Spec Ops The Line, The Walking Dead, Dead
Space, Cart Life, The Longest Journey, Metal Arms, and a ton more.
I couldn't come close to naming everything.
