it seems like a lot of ladies on here who say they are opposites to their partners, so are they any ladies who have very similar personalites or interests? or is it really true that opposites attract and work better as a partnership?
I’m interested, I’m one of the ladies I refer to as SO and I are very different interests/taste/personality wise but our core values/life goals are very similar so maybe it’s a balancing act?

@PenguinLove: My So and I are very similiar. We are both into transportaion safety, we both have the same type of job, we both love the outdoors, nature, fishing, we both are talkers, we both have very intellectual minds, we both love to socialize. He the philanthropist, and I the diplomat. We are both dreamers, and highly motivated.
We are like two people in seperate bodies sharing the same likes and desires and thoughts. The only real difference is he is the mechanical mind, and I am the logistical mind. The two of us can make any venture happen with exactness and precision. Other than that, our conversations are endless, and very deep and varied on numerous topics.

I feel like my relationship with my SO works because we are so simliar. We are around the same age, same political views, religious views, taste in music is simliar, movies, tv, etc. We have the same family values, and beliefs about a lot of things (raising children, ethics, work ethic, etc). I cannot really think of any ways we differ really. I mean there’s a few shows I like that he doesn’t and vice versa, but overall we are on the exact same page in all aspects of life.
It’s nice because I always immediately know what he will think about things, because it’s the same as I do.

@PenguinLove: Drum ‘n’ bass baby. All the way. We were good friends for a long time before we started seeing each other so I guess that also stems from having laods in common. We had ‘our’ stuff at some point, but now we have fun doing stuff together.

@PenguinLove: we have mostly similar personalities. There are some things we argue about, but we have more in common than not in common. We both have the same outlook that it’s easier to get through the hard times when you confront things with a sense of humor. We’re always making each other laugh. I could never be with someone who didn’t make me laugh.

Me and my fiancé are very similar and I love it that way. We entertain each other with similar taste in humor and topics. I have a partner in crime and it works for me.

My guy and I are basically the same person in terms of interests, hobbies, political values, and really anything else. He’s also really into fashion and grooming, though we like different designers/styles. He is very New England prepster, and I have a more simple aesthetic.

We share political beliefs, ideals about raising our kids, financial goals/practices, goals in life, values, etc. All the big stuff, I’d say. But in a few minor things we are total opposites – he is totally and obsessively punctual. Like his life depends on it. Nooooooot me!! Not a day in my life lol.

We have so many things in common: big dark eyes, thick hair, big feet, similar political and religious views, similar parents, left-handed, clumsy, etc. that sometimes it can be really strange. Sometimes we’ll see something and have the same thought.

@PenguinLove: There was a thread the other day asking bees about the ways they are the opposite from their SO.
Everyone has some, but I couldn’t really come up with enough to post in that thread. SO and I pretty much share all the same interests and values. Our personalities are both mellow, though we balance each other out in some areas. We have had different life experiences, so there is some contrast when it comes to certain subjects.

Yup, me and FH are a whole lot alike. We both speak the same two languages fluently, we share the same religion, we love to eat (all the time), we share the same political views, we have the same moral guage on situations, we both have ridiculous sense of humors, we even went to the same elementary school, we have the same financial goals, we share the same intellect, etc.
The list is actually really long, more than I can write. It’s hard to think of where we are opposites…we are seriously like 95% the same person, lol.

My FI and I are basically the same person. We have a few variants, but I much prefer being so similar–it makes things a lot easier.

My partner and I are very much alike. We have the same beliefs, we both work in health care and we have very similar taste. It’s made furniture shopping and wedding planning much easier! Plus, it’s just wonderful to be with someone who understands me so well.
