How could I possibly date someone who does not share at least a few common interests?

What are you planning on doing with the person in the long term?

Here's how i look at it.

You need to have somewhat in common. Something you both enjoy doing,otherwise you will cross paths later down the road. You want to go to an anime-con,he does not. He wants to go do this and you don't because neither of you have the same interests.

You use the term completely wrong. Opposites attract mean's personality not hobbies. Now,you don't want to date someone completely same because you wont experience new things. But they need to at least have something in common,and understand those which he does not have interest in.

I enjoy watching Anime with my wife,she likes it and i like it. But we don't enjoy the same stuff all the time,that's more then a difference. She's into games but different games. I'm into car's she's not at all. Its a balance. We have some of the same,and some of our own. You will just have issues down the road if you dont have any of the same hobbies ;P




Great mind's think alike ;D

Well, guys hate listening to girls drone on about subjects they're not interested in. And I can't speak for you but I bet it wouldn't be long before you started feeling the same way.

I can't even imagine a relationship with someone I had nothing in common with. Don't even see the point. Having some interests that aren't shared is fine but nothing? Why?

I guess it is a bit weird. If I do find someone who shares a lot of the things I like then I feel like I'm dating myself. I hate myself too much to do that.

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!!!


Imho, if you refuse to date someone who has similar interest, you could be missing out on the person, who could be just right for you.

Its not weird to date someone without similar interests, it happens all the time. And those relationships work out just fine.

Me and my wife have pretty much the same likes, dislikes, and to many things to count in common.
And cause of that we enjoy everything we do together. When I first met her, I shared with her some of my favorite anime songs. I was shocked when she started singing the lyrics from a song made in 1988, cause of that it brought us a lot closer =].

I made a post earlier just to make my point.
Dating someone with the same interests is not dating yourself. You and i both like anime,were different people completely.

It's hard to explain why I see it that way. I just don't want to see myself in someone else.

Now I'm curious what interests you. Cause I'm sure many of us here have the same interest, and we are all nothing alike. Also don't be so hard on yourself ok =]

I love reading, writing, and anime. I've always been hard on myself ever since I was a little girl.

You just described my Wife, just last month she read 30 books, and we watched 3 series last month. You know growing up I was the same and so was my wife, we were also the blacksheep in our families. And now I'd say we are the most interesting people in our families :p
