Sometimes I think people get the wrong opinion of me, as I prefer to observe rather than be the life of the party, and while I do love my quiet time where I can be free to focus on whatever I want (I should note that I'm about 60-70% introverted), I also love spending time with people. Some things I enjoy doing with groups (or one-on-one) are seeing movies, playing board games, grabbing a bite to eat, and just being able to sit down and have a conversation without interruptions.
Movies (all time)- Indiana Jones Trilogy, Silver Linings Playbook, Gone with the Wind, Jurassic Park
TV Shows- New Girl, The Mindy Project, The Walking Dead, Downton Abbey, Doctor Who, Brooklyn 99, and more recently Master of None
Music- Mumford & sons, Sara Barielles, Florence & the Machine, The Lumineers, Typhoon
Food- Thai, Italian, sushi, and good "southern cooking" on occasion (fried chicken, buttermilk biscuits, and anything else that's not really good for you)
Some ideas for conversation starters in your first email: Tell me the most adventurous thing you’ve ever done, and then something you have on your “bucket list” that could be something we do together. I love creating new memories over shared experiences-- I'm open to trying just about anything once, but won't promise to always like it. Or tell me three things you can’t live without and why they are so important to you. Ask me anything else you want to know that I haven’t already shared.
