Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Cloud Atlas, Mr. Vertigo, Catcher in the Rye, Ender's Game,
and anything by Chuck Klosterman. Always looking for suggestions as
well. Don't get much time to read these days, though.
Movies: I've never been into horror movies. Can't explain it, sorry
if that's your thing. Other than that, anything. Particularly fond
of action, comedy, and especially those movies that walk the fine
line between the two. The occasional documentary, too.
TV: Rarely actually watch live TV, but I'm all about Netflix.
Scrubs, Parks & Rec, The Office, HIMYM, Arrested Development,
The West Wing, Colbert, The Daily Show.
Music: Quite literally anything. I majored in it, so I'd better
freaking like it. On one hand, I paid money to see a 5-hour long
opera at the Kennedy Center last fall, and I left with a smile on
my face. On the other, I blast T-Swift every time she comes on the
radio. (Shake It Off is definitely her magnum opus)
Here's a list of personal favorites, though... In no particular
order. Bloc Party, Streetlight Manifesto, Of Monsters and Men,
Frightened Rabbit, The Shins, Pearl Jam, Reel Big Fish, Foo
Fighters, Band of Horses, Bright Eyes. I will also drop literally
anything and everything to see Snarky Puppy any time they play a
show in the DC area.
Food: Mexican, Any kind of Asian, Italian... So basically, if it's
spicy or covered in cheese, I'll eat it. I'm a simple man.
