Here you should set everything except your bio to 'Friends Only.' For your bio and favorite things I would set it to 'Everyone,' this allows people who are browsing Facebook to see your bio and if they like what they read they could request friendship/partnership.
However, for your birthday, if you don't want people to know how old you are you can set it to 'Me Only!'
