hen it comes to dating, you’ve probably witnessed your close friends and family unanimously agree that finding a partner exactly like you will bring long-term happiness and success in the relationship.
While having a few common interests and basic outlook on life is important, dating someone too similar to yourself could lead to stagnancy, boredom, and dissatisfaction down the road. Having the same likes and dislikes, the same quirks, same hobbies, exact same personality, taste in food…you would eventually feel trapped and complacent, and would likely seek someone who complemented you rather than mirrored you.
I’m pretty sure you’ve all heard the saying “opposites attract” – and if you haven’t, well, where have you been?!
I’ve heard it countless times during my life and I think that in my experience, it’s proven true.
We all like the same foods, same music, and even the same hobbies. It’s important to surround yourself with people who value the same things and have the same morals as you. It’s healthy to talk about similar interests and engage with people who think just like you.
