I doubt I was ever "really good" as a runner, but after a multi-year hiatus from being a serious runner, I'm trying to get back into it...currently doing about 25 miles a week, hopefully more as my aging legs get back into condition. I also do yoga as often as possible (although it tends to put my brain in a mellow haze where I can't focus on work afterward.)
I don't know exactly what category to put it in, but I have a great love for works with a certain mix of erudition and silliness-- e.g., Stephen Fry, "Schickele Mix," and the songs of Tom Lehrer. (I realize that every woman on OKCupid takes herself and the world very, very seriously--but possibly there are a few goofballs out there to whom a bit of dorky humor in a man is actually a selling point. One never knows.)
Films: "The Holy Mountain," "Go," "Spirit Of The Beehive," "Heavy Metal," "Repo Man." More recently: "Obvious Child," "Cheap Thrills," "Inside Out," "Toni Erdmann."
Music, popular: "Automatic For The People," "The Milk-Eyed Mender," "I See A Darkness," "Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart," "Welcome Interstate Managers."
Music, unpopular: Beethoven's late chamber music, Glenn Gould's "Well-Tempered Clavier," any jazz recorded before 1930. And Schubert's C-Major Quintet, which I think is one of the greatest (and most underappreciated) works in the classical canon.
TV: Like everybody else, "The Wire," The Sopranos," "The Office," and the first season of "True Detective." I also like some recent BBC comedies--"The Trip," the various Mitchell & Webb projects, and the improv-quiz show "QI." I'm also enjoying "Silicon Valley." (if you've read this far, that's probably no surprise.)
Food: I like to cook and my friends seem to enjoy eating what I make. Possibly they're just being polite.
Give me Stalin and St Paul
I've seen the future, brother--
It is murder.
Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
Won't be nothing--
Nothing you can measure anymore."
Dad, get me out of this."
Also, please have at least one *recent* full-length photo of yourself on your profile. (Yes, I realize this makes me seem like a superficial jerk. However, if you're not comfortable enough with your body to post a picture of it on a dating website, we probably wouldn't get along anyway.)
