Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The Time Traveler's Wife, Everything Is Illuminated,
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Middlesex, Gut Symmetries, the
Harry Potter series, anything by Kurt Vonnegut, The Little Prince,
anything by Dr Suess. (I have a deep appreciation for children's
literature.) I love to read, but law school makes it hard to find
time for joy-reading.
Movies: I see astonishingly few movies. Most people who are getting
to know me decide they need to make me a list of movies I must see
so that I can 1)be truly human and 2) carry on a pop-culturally
literate conversation. No one has ever actually made that list. If
given a choice, I prefer live theater to movies any day.
TV Shows: The West Wing, 30 Rock, Game of Thrones, The Big Bang
Theory, X-files, Criminal Minds, Planet Earth.
Music: Mostly folk.
Food: I love fruit of all kinds and in all contexts. I munch on
fruit all the time and love to find ways of including it in savory
dishes. I love veggies, too, and have been known to convert those
who think they dislike veggies into people who ask for second
helpings of Brussels sprouts. I have a terrible/terrific sweet
tooth and am a sucker for cookies. I love spices, not just for heat
but for depth of flavor. I love to try out new dishes, new
cuisines, and new recipes. When I was in Africa, I ate both mopani
worms and giraffe meat. In short, I love food.
