Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read a lot. I rarely read only one book at a time. My interests
vary and shift so I read about many different topics.
Folklore & mythology worldwide
Writing practice / technique
Articles on equality
Brain injuries & migraines
I also read lots of novels and short stories. Horror, supernatural,
dystopian / post apocalyptic, Sci/Fi & Fantasy tales are my
favorites, but I read in just about any genre available. (2
exceptions: I don't read many romances or westerns. They rarely
grab my fancy.) I've also recently been getting into webcomics and
off-beat graphic novels.
Give me a good solid story with believable characters who do
interesting things and, if it's written well, I will read the hell
out of that book, short story, poem, whatever.
A few of the Fiction Authors I adore in no particular order:
Charles De Lint
Diana Wynne Jones
George RR Martin
We have no cable & no basic TV, but we download and check
things out of the library or watch things on Netflix. I tend to
"watch" while writing or doing other things.

To my slight shame, while I like classical music, I don't know it
as well as I used to. *hangs head*
I do not like country. Nope, not even Willie Nelson.
Food: Vegetarian... My tastes tend towards spicy so lots of salsa,
wasabi peas, curry, etc. I also like salads, sandwiches and
pizza... always PiZzA!!!
I like food! But I don't eat carcasses or tomatoes... for very
different reasons. (I will eat the humiliated juices of tomatoes in
all its many glorious forms.)
