I judge people who think taste-in-media is either a dealbreaker or
proof of compatibility.
You'll get a better idea of my tastes by asking me what I'm reading
now, and what I think of it.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want someone to go on adventures with, but also someone who can
sit and talk and have tea with you while she crochets/draws
