Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: "The Con Game and Yellow Kid Weil" (great book on unchanging
human nature), "Your Money & Your Brain," "What Are the Odds?,"
Movies: I like films that focus on triumph over adversity or that
warms the soul. Suspense movies that are not too difficult to
follow, with unexpected turns, such as "Premonition," "Next,"
"Training Day," "Matchstick Men." I liked "Fast & Furious 6"
while constantly reminding myself I'm watching a fairy tale.
Sentimental movies such as "Ghost," "King Kong," "The Man from
Elysian Fields" (Mick Jagger great acting). Life's comedies that
don't go overboard, such as "Youth in Revolt," "The Man who Loved
Women" (original French version). Following are movies that many
liked and I did not care for: "Titanic," "Gravity."
TV: Tonight Show+ Jimmy Kimmel opening monologue, News, SNL,
Twilight Zone reruns, True Blood & History Channel (when I can
get them), CNN Crossfire.
Food: Thai, Seafood, Italian, Mexican (more atmosphere than food).
Sushi - ugh! Sweets like cookies - my weakness.
Music: Beatles, Rolling Stones, Beach Boys, Doors, 70's & 80's
music. Ella Fitzgerald Jazz.
