A womens point of view- Well i have two answers to this question. Opposites do attract and in a relationship(from my experience) being with someone who has their own interests and a full life with goals and ambitions, makes them very interesting and attractive. If they had all the same interests it could get boring, a bit wierd and suffocating. Everyone wants to have their "thing" that they do lol. Like i am very much into star gazing and all kinds.If my partner suddenly was so interested in star gazing then it coud make it less special for me, it's my territory! lol On the other hand having absolutley nothing in common is no good either, because you will probably always argue about those differences. It's all about balance i think.

My opinion would have to be the couple who is very similar;; Because they have alot in common;; Where the couple who is different would have to really work on their differences and each other out looks of things....

For me, its the couple with different interests. These are people who can understand each other and who can come up with a compromise. We have our own wants and needs. Whatever our wants and needs are may not be the same as with your partner. Compromise with each other and try to learn from each other. Understanding each other means loving. So I guess, it is. Anyway, communication is the key to a lasting relationship.

I think the thing is the capability to trust in each other and to be ready for compromises for each other is the best way of success of any relationship. i think no matter how many interest match of two people but a single conflict is enough to make the relation bad. so there is a need of understanding between each other no matter how many interest they dont have common.

perhaps if choosing to grow in learning is a priority, it is probably good to have different interests. I would consider an exception when for instance, a couple works to do research in a certain field - then perhaps it is probably good that they have same interests ? But then again perhaps it's only me ? cheers

I think it would be difficult to be in a relationship with someone who thinks totally different then yourself. Although I don't think that all of your interests should match, but there should be something in common to build a long term relationship.

I think couple with very different interest because I they can better understand each other.
