7 Things You Don't ⛔️ Need to Have in Common πŸ” Just to Date Each Other πŸ’‘ ...


Your boyfriend isn't supposed to be the spitting image of you.

How creepy would that be?

That's why you shouldn't be concerned if you two don't seem to have a lot in common.

As long as you can still find topics to talk about and fun dates to go on, then there's nothing to worry about.

Here are a few things that you don't need to have in common with a guy in order to have a successful relationship with him:

1. Your Taste in TV Shows

Your Taste in TV Shows

Every couple wants to lounge around on the couch watching Netflix.

However, if you can never settle on a show that you'll both enjoy, it'll push you to go out and have some fun.

You'll never waste your days inside the house, because you'd rather go mini-golfing or bike riding.

Your Friends


I don't think race matters in a relationship, but religious beliefs, unless they're similar, its incredibly hard. I dated a very religious Christian man during high school, and being raised atheist and not fully believing in mainstream religion, it got really hard. Especially once I figured out who I was and everything, he couldn't be supportive anymore because I thought women were also attractive. Another is the backgrounds. I do agree but I don't. I grew up very poor, and in a crappy neighborhood with lots of things happening. My family never had more than 200$ combined that were not going to bills or necessities. Once I got a stable job and moved out, and helped my family, things were better but I didn't change lifestyles. One night at a bar with friends I met this really really awesome guy, we hit it off and ended up seeing each other the next day. We casually dated for a few months, then his parents were coming for a visit, he invited me to dinner. I figured I'd just wear a cute sundress. When he picked me up in a really nice car, with a driver, I felt very out of place. We went to a restaurant where the prices weren't even on the menu, and there wasn't anything basic to eat. I ended up getting a salad since I couldn't pronounce anything else. But the worst part, his Parents were lovely, but they were complaining about the silliest things. Of course they were problems for them, but when you can't decide what diamond bracelet to wear with your outfit, so you just go buy another, its not at all a problem compared to "I can't afford to pay for gas so I have to walk 80 minutes to work or starve". It was fun, I got to experience a lot of new things, but at the end of the day, his problems were not in the same wavelength as mine in severity (again, problems nonetheless for him, but silly things in regards to my life) and he couldn't understand that I needed to work a certain amount of hours to be able to afford rent and food. He skipped work all the time, and only got "fun" jobs that he could try for a while then leave when he got bored. I realized quickly after that, we weren't going anywhere, I'm sure if we stayed together we'd fight over everything, since he was materialistic and I could barely afford a used couch. I think most things people are able to look past, but when someone grew up completely different than you, and you aren't just looking for someone who is rich, then it's not going to work out. Just like religious beliefs, its not something that can be changed without consequences to the relationship and resentment.
