Help your potential matches find common interests.
Have trimmed this section. I get into books, then movies, then TV
shows, then music and then back again. I am active socially, so
don’t spend as much time as others I know keeping up with the
latest. Part of the fun of a relationship I've found is meeting
people with different interests, like new clothes you can try on
and see how they fit. This world keeps producing more and more
interesting stuff, so feel free to tell me what I should be
Books: Pretty eclectic. A mix of classic and contemporary
literature, narrative nonfiction, books on education, social
phenomena, and assorted poetry. Not much rhyme or reason to what
I’ll pick up to read next. Milan Kundera’s The Unbearable Lightness
of Being was important book for me. Imbibed much Tolkien as a
child. A.S. Byatt’s Possession was one of the last books I read
that really knocked my socks off. Also read newspapers and
magazines regularly. Been meaning to renew my New Yorker
Movies: Where to start? Went through a heavy movie-loving phase. My
movie-viewing has fallen off in recent years, but perhaps you can
rescue me on that front. Movies that will stop me from moving if
they come on include Raising Arizona, Casablanca, L.A.
Confidential, City of God, Sexy Beast, Rushmore, Fear and Loathing
in Las Vegas, Howards End, Say Anything, This is Spinal Tap, Office
Space, Crumb, Chinatown, Belle Epoque, Sideways, The Departed,
Goodfellas, The Bridge Over the River Kwai, Fight Club, The Big
Lebowski, Eastern Promises, Old School, Ferris Bueller's Day Off,
Raiders Of The Lost Ark, Up, and the list goes on.
TV: Lots of great ones, and I have many, many many to catch up on.
Here are some I’ve enjoyed in recent years: Lost, Arrested
Development, My So Called Life, Six Feet Under, The Wire, Curb Your
Enthusiasm, Game of Thrones, Justified, The Bridge and The United
States of Tara.
Music: Way too many bands to list. Grew up a Beatles nut and have
branched out ever since. I was on a new music kick a couple of
years ago, but that has calmed of late. Feel free to tell me what
i’m missing. Most of my faves are classic modern pop and rock stars
and bands that everyone knows. Also like lots of alternative and
indie music from the last few decades. My classical and jazz
knowledge has many holes but I enjoy that and can be talked to
hitting a concert. Can appreciate the craft in some country music,
especially older country, but don’t seek it out. I’m pretty
whitebread, so my hip hop knowledge is full of holes, but I enjoy
dancing and can be shown the error of my ways.
Food: I'll eat pretty much anything. Sea urchin, beets and brussel
sprouts were longtime dislikes but have had those in recent years
and enjoyed them as well. Depending on how they are cooked. When I
eat just for me I try to go light on the meat or better yet avoid
it. Also have cut out most junk food, soft drinks and desserts. i
like vegetarian fare as well and wish I could cook more of it. At a
restaurant, though, I'm an adventurous eater. Tend not to order the
same thing twice if I've been to a restaurant before. I enjoy wine,
but wish I was more knowledgeable on the subject.
