Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I read primarily non-fiction stuff. I love books on American
history, politics, media, journalism, sociology, social studies,
business, etc. I just love finding out what makes people tick and
why people do what they do, either as an aggregate or also on a
smaller scale. Biographies are a ton of fun too. I just love
Movies: I'll watch pretty much anything, sometimes even the drama
comedies / chick flicks with my younger sister and mom when I'm
home (ssh, don't tell anyone). I love watching documentaries too.
Again with the learning thing.
Shows: Again, I'll watch pretty much anything (including cartoons.
LOVE old cartoons). But some of my current favorites include Modern
Family, Doctor Who, Seinfeld, The Walking Dead, The West Wing
(still addicted!), The Newsroom, BBC's Sherlock, The Daily Show
with Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and
Music: I listen to pretty much everything except twangy country
(though pop country isn't bad) and screamo music. I love, love,
love music. There is always music playing and I love finding new
bands to listen to.
Food: Pizza! No, seriously. I love pizza.
