When people first meet me, they notice one of two things (and which they notice first actually depends on how comfortable I am with my environment.):
1) I can be EXTREMELY quiet and shy.
2) I can be EXTREMELY gregarious, witty, and sarcastic.
Two very opposing personality traits, but there it is. When I'm comfortable with the place I'm in, the people I'm with, and things like that, I'm the second option.
But in new places, with new people, I tend to go quiet and people watch for a bit before I decide to let my crazy personality shine.
Movies and music are things I can't really name favorites for, since it changes based on my mood at the moment. But there are a few genres I lean more toward.
I can watch any movie by Kevin Smith and not get tired. I also love the movie Empire Records.
With music, I prefer separate songs as opposed to artists. Most of the time, I don't even know who the person singing the song is...I just like it.
As for food...I'll try anything once. But I tend to stay away from overly spicy food and food with lots of dairy in it. Being lactose intolerant causes for some unpleasantness when it comes to dairy.
I love soup though. Seriously...any kind of soup. It'll be a hot 107 degrees and I'll want a bowl of soup.
My favorite quote about beer:
"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer and alcohol I’ve consumed, I feel ashamed. Then I look into an empty glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their individual hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, someone might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Therefore, I would rather drink this drink and help make someone’s dreams come true than be selfish and worry only about my liver."
4) My glasses
5) My sense of humor
6) My use of, love, and appreciation for proper grammar and spelling...along with the Oxford comma.
And you can put together a message that consists of more than 1-3 four word (max.) sentences that speaks only in generalities.
"Hey. You are awesome," is not a message that will gain the attention of many girls.
Just a heads up.
Oh, and if my profile wasn't TL;DR for you.
