Boys and grills have a lot in common. Many shared passions.

Overall, it's interesting because of the shared belief structures evident. Besides, it could be worse. It could be trying to validate the relationships in things like Oreimo.

I'll only date a supermodel that has watched more than 500 anime and love soccer. Is it too much to ask?

Your standards seem high to me.

It's not weird at all however I am a firm believer that opposites attract.

I think you need a balance. Relationships where the two people have NOTHING in common would end real fast. You'd always disagree and fight with each other. But I also don't think two people should be exactly the same.

Balances are good.

There's nothing wrong with it at all. For some they see dating as an opportunity to expand their horizons, others would rather date someone with similar interests just to stay n their own comfort zones. Neither is right or wrong, it depends on your individual beliefs which you prefer.

Expanding my horizons sounds more like it.

I don't believe that complete opposites atract each other. This only works on fiction. I don't think people have to share all their hobbies, personality traits and opinions to fall in love. However, they do need to have something in common if they are looking forward to a long-term relationship. If two people have nothing in common I don't think they last too long as a couple. I mean, what would they talk about if this were the case? What would they do together? How would they agree on something? How would they stand each other?

"Opposites attract" is just fine imo as a dating guideline. Your partners manners & interests are a big part of who they are and we all know one of the best ways to try something new is to have someone show you. For example one of my last gf's was totally into karaoke and very into that scene. I jumped right in along side her knowing nothing and it was pretty cool and found out I'm a pretty good singer.

But just make sure your both still compatible enough to share "some" common ground besides mutual attraction or else there will be awkwardness that will potentially put distance between the two of you.

I think that common interest are neccisary for long term relationships. For short term relationships physical attraction will suffice, but for a long term relationship to actually work there must be some common ground. Without it the relationship will collapse. I don't think you need to share ALL your interests, (in fact, i think its detrimental) but a few are needed. Fortunately, couples tend to develop common interests via exposure so even if you start without any eventually some will develop as you share your lives. That assuming the relationship lasts long enough to get to that point. Opposites attract only works for attraction. That is a very shallow and short term phase of a relationship.
