    fit

    Good evening!
    I am looking for a right way to say I like something or doing some activity too much.

    For instance:
    I've been working in customer service for five years now. Also, I am teaching English. These are activities that fit perfectly with the kind of person that I am
    .

    My questions are: Is it correct? and if it is, what phrasal verb can I use to replace the meaning of "fit"?

    THANK YOU!!!

    If you like something or an activity "too much", it is a negative. It means that your liking is excessive.

    Also, why are you looking for a phrasal verb to replace "fit". Neither "fit" nor "fit perfectly" is a phrasal verb.
