1. Conversations won’t always be that interesting.
While it’s true that common interests usually draw people together and bond them over time, sharing the same interests can lead to some pretty dull and lifeless conversations. It’s especially bad if you find that you and your partner share the same opinions and flaws, because the relationship will probably fizzle out more quickly.
2. You’ll probably never get out of your comfort zone.
Think about it. If you and your partner have the same interests, you’ll probably grow comfortable and stick to the same routine, day in and day out. Unfortunately, this leaves no opportunity for you to explore new things and spice things up a bit.
3. You’re less likely to be adventurous.
And speaking of comfort zones, since you’re so content with doing the same things over and over again, you probably don’t even think about the fact that your relationship lacks excitement and adventure. Being adventurous gives you and your partner the chance to explore new interests together!
4. You’re more likely to get bored with your relationship.
Again, sticking to the same hobbies, having the same conversations and agreeing on everything is a surefire way to get bored pretty fast. But this is less likely to happen with someone who encourages you to try something new and see things a little differently.
5. Sometimes, you’ll feel like you’re dating yourself.
Okay, fine. When Justin Timberlake soulfully sings about it, it’s hard to believe that dating a mirrored version of yourself is not the best thing in the world. But hear me out: Dating a carbon copy of yourself can eventually get really boring (unless you’re Kanye West, I guess).
6. You won’t feel challenged.
It can be so exciting to be with someone who has opinions that mostly differ from yours, because then, it challenges you to reconsider your own views and start interesting discussions. This doesn’t mean that you and your partner should get into a full-blown fight over issues that you don’t agree on. Rather, you can respectfully agree to disagree and accept these differences.
