if i look at my parents (both sets) neither one really has a lot in common with eachother. sure they’ll go out and do some things, but the majority of stuff they enjoy doing are things that they don’t do together. my SO however grew up in a family where his parents do basically everything together..
do you and your FI have a lot of shared interests? or do you really just have your love for eachother in common, and everything else you do with friends?

We have almost everything in common. That’s not to say that we don’t do things separately – we still spend time apart, but all of our habits, likes, dislikes, etc are similar.
It wasn’t always that way, though. We’re lucky in that we’ve really grown together.
The one thing we’re really different on? I’m a night person and R is a morning person. So he tends to get up, make the coffee, study, work out, etc, in the morning, and I work out, study, do any leftover dishes, etc at night.

My FI is more of a homebody who enjoys being by himself (or with me, of course!) whereas I can’t stay home for long periods of time and love going out and doing social things. It totally works out though, as I know I can go out and do whatever I want and he’ll be fine… but I know that when I come home, he’ll be there waiting for me. And there are plenty of things we like to do together (ride bikes, play scrabble or blockus or civ…, go to a coffeeshop, talk politics… ect.) It works out great for us 🙂

We DO have a lot in common – our backgrounds are very similar, our values and morals are very similar, our taste is similar; but our interests are very different. J is all outdoorsy and loves to camp and hike; I’m into people watching in big cities. He reads books about history and science and religion and learns things; I love to curl up with novels, from trashy stuff to teen fiction to Jane Austen. He loves backpacking, I love taking trains across foreign countries. We both enjoy white water rafting, but he’s also into caving and rock climbing and hardcore stuff like that, while I’m into tubing down lazy rivers and going to water parks, haha.
But we make an effort to do stuff together and to try each others’ interests. Plus we make ‘deals’ with each other – I’ll go camping for a long weekend if you’ll take dance lessons with me for six weeks; stuff like that.

I don’t quite understand your question. Are you asking if the couples here have a lot in common or if they do a lot together? Because my SO and I have a lot in common, but there are plenty of instances we do things seperately. 🙂

We have A LOT in common, and we also do a lot together! We both have our separate hobbies, but we do most things together!

None of the options really describe us. We have a lot in common in that we both tend to be a bit homebody, and values in common.
However, when it comes to specfic hobbies I’d say we’re not so much alike. He likes anything to do with sports and I prefer music, theatre and that kind of thing. So we do lots of things separately, but both make an effort to participate and enjoy eachother’s hobbies as much as possible. Or at least enjoy some time together doing something we may not particularly love.
