Help your potential matches find common interests.
For media, I like things that can make me seriously think and
analyze what I'm viewing and then reward me for doing so.
MOVIES: Pride and Prejudice (2005), The Devil Wears Prada, Out of
Africa, Pulp Fiction, Amelie, The Raid: Redemption, and Mean Girls
are always a blast.
BOOKS: The Bachman Books, Harry Potter, Oleanna, You will hear
Thunder, A Streetcar Named Desire, The Prince, Dead Uncertainties,
One For the Money series, and Stardust. (If you have any
recommendations I'd be happy to hear them!)
TV SHOWS: Community, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (and it's equally
amazing spinoff, Angel), Doctor Who, Band of Brothers, Game of
Thrones, House of Cards, Orange Is the New Black, Moribito, Avatar
(TLA as well as LoK!), NCIS.
FOOD: I love anything Italian, anything sweet (CHEESECAKE), and
anything homemade with care.
MUSIC: I usually like specific songs instead of artists. My tastes
vary and change a lot. 90's Pop (Susanne Vega, Cranberries),
Alternative (Offspring, Rise Against), Subversive pop (Gotye,
Lorde, MIKA, Chloe Howl), and neoclassical/soundtracks (Yann
Tiersen, Debussey, Carly Commando) tend to take the cake.
