Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: All of the Harry Potter (the American child's staple.. you
now, even though it's a British thing)
Movies: Not super huge on movies, but I like Tim Burton things
(like the Corpse Bride), and Rom-Coms so I can temporarily live
vicariously through the life of a free-spirited vixen and her
all-too involved friend, all the while stumbling upon the man of
her dreams by happenstance in a book store. Also the 40-year-Old
Virgin. I've seen it like 50 times and I still laugh.
TV: Animated Fox shows, whatever's on HGTV, whoever's playin' on
Sunday (or Monday.. or Thursday, I only discriminate against
Saturday games.. Never got into college ball), and don't judge my
love for teen dramas. They're gold.
Music: I've listened to the same three stations on Pandora for
about 5 years. I'll listen to anything as long as it comes on those
stations, but I can also get down to some 2k country songs.
Food: Everything sans sushi, fish, steak, lobster, crab, mushrooms,
most pig products- yes bacon included (and yes I am American-
probably more than you, technically, but I digress), and shrimp.
Plus side, though? I'm a cheap eat.
