Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The Lord of the Rings, Ender's Game, A
Tale of Two Cities, Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, anything by
Mark Twain, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy,
Where the Red Fern Grows--this list is slanted toward
sci-fi & fantasy, but I love reading pretty much anything that
doesn't read like a textbook.
Movies: Anything funny (particularly anything involving Mel Brooks
and/or the Muppets) and/or romantic and/or good drama, such as
The Princess Bride, Despicable Me,
Miracle, Juno, The Shawshank Redemption,
V for Vendetta, or Catch Me If You Can. I'm *not*
into horror films, but I like a good thriller (say, Red
Eye or Inception). Also, The Lego Movie just
launched itself up near the top of the list.
TV: The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother**,
New Girl, 30 Rock, Arrested Development,
Home Improvement, M*A*S*H, The Late Late Show
with Craig Ferguson, Red Wings hockey games, Team USA soccer
games, World Cup, the Olympics.
Music: I generally gravitate toward mainstream classic or
contemporary rock... and Weird Al. (Although I like most anything
except country and screaming-into-a-microphone.)
Food: Lasagna, pizza, spaghetti, cinnamon toast, chocolate chip
