Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thanks a bunches.


I refuse to date someone who shares the same things I like. I am a firm believer of "opposites attract". I believe that two people who have nothing in common can get along greatly as people who have something in common. it's strange because I feel like my hobbies are my thing and I don't want to share them. So, is it weird to not want to date someone who shares the same common interest as you?

Enjoy!!!

My significant other and I share tons of common interests. We love animation, videogames, being lazy and we're just generally into the same kind of things. Really the only thing we disagree on that often is dragons vs mechs (mechs ftw)

My thinking is that hobbies don't have to be similar/shared, just understood/accepted so long as they are not harmful.

Its not weird at all to date someone who doesnt have the same interests as you, it just depends on the person and their mindset in my opinion.

Fortunately, there are several studies that can probably be read to maybe indicate that believing 'opposites attract' in romantic relationships could be construed as being not entirely incorrect.

As a science student I can safely say that you are much better off ignoring such studies regardess of what they tell you and going with what feels right

So, I'm better off dating someone with common interest and goals?

That would be cool, but aside from serpenterra from power rangers, neither of us can think of any examples of such a creature

depends, while its easier if it from the same (area, place/hobby/workplace or past/childhood) while in around work its mostly easier for some and they try to live together while getting closer.

While I do not support or particularly dismiss any of these psychology studies, I do not think you could call yourself a student of science and still say things like being able to safely say you are better off ignoring any study, much less going with 'what feels right'.

If the most you can get out of a study is "it can probably be read to maybe indicate that believing sonething can be construed as not entirely incorrect" (paraphrasing) then it's likely not something you should base your entire romantic life on, you get me?

I don't think it's weird, I think it depends on the person. My Bro really dated someone for 2 years and broke up cuz they had nothing in common.
And I wouldn't date someone without at least some common interest.

I think it's preference. I would like to share some of my hobbies with the people close to me, like best friend and girlfriend. I do understand your point, and I don't think it's weird, it makes sense.

I don't think there are many mechanical dragons.
