I feel as if I live by this saying more than anyone else. I am why they came up with this in the first place. You may be friends or in a relationship with someone based on similarities, but there are so many instances where I feel I have less in common with someone than in common.
I even found this pattern where a lot of my friends who don't know each other, have much more in common than I do with each of them. I mean yeah, I have things in common with them, I had to have become friends with them somehow in the first place. Altogether though, there are plenty of things we don't see eye to eye on.
You don't have to have everything in common with your significant other either. You read all these articles about how two people are so perfect for each other because they do everything together and have all the same opinions. Well in my opinion, that would get a little boring to me. Isn't it a little more exciting when two people are different?
I don't care what anyone says, you love who you love and you can't change that. You can try to, but good luck with that, I've never seen how it's possible. So if you love someone who doesn't think or feel the same as you, don't panic.
Maybe you and someone don't have much in common, maybe you feel like you are complete opposites and have nothing in common. Most likely that's not true. If you search and try hard enough, there is probably something/s that the two of you agree about or enjoy doing.
It is ok to do your own thing in relationships. Sometimes you're gonna be alone in doing something, enjoy it. While in a relationship though, you should try new things with your SO, as they should do the same for you. We have to do a lot of things in life we don't want to, well that goes for relationships as well. Suck it up, maybe you'll end up with a new hobby.
Having different opinions and hobbies can get in the way and even cause disagreements. The best thing to remember is that it shouldn't be that big of a deal, unless of course your opposite opinions deeply affect the relationship. If you can make it work, then don't worry about the differences.
Love who you wanna love. Be friends with people who make you laugh and care about you. Regardless of differences, we are on this Earth to make it a better place, right? Now I got too deep.
Put aside the fact that there are differences, if the love is mutual, that's enough in common as far as I can tell.
