We both don’t care about Lord of the Rings that much, which is like sacrilege in our group of friends haha.

We both find farts, farting and anything fart related super funny, yea juvenile I know lol… I remember a few months into dating he showed me a fart app on his phone and we were having such a good time laughing at the different farts, and he said “I’m pretty sure I paid 99c for this”. I thought it was hilarious and thought, he must be the one. LOL..

I also thought it was weird but lately when I was cleaning out my stuff to move to Fiance’s place, I found my old MD player, and he said he had one too. And that was weird because I don’t know anyone who had one (it’s one of those between technology music players, after CD before MP3).

We also have both been to the Beatles Love cirque du soleil in Las Vegas (weird because we both live in Australia) on recommendation and both thought it was so boring and fell asleep (being a night time show didn’t help) lol…

 My mum and my husband’s dad were born only 40 miles away from each other and just a few months apart, in small towns. His dad moved 2000 miles away and when my mum was young her family moved to the other side of the world. When we met we thought that was quite a fluke.

We discovered early on that both of us have no interest in anything Disney. (My sister-in-law finds this very hard to understand).

Our ancestors lived in the same area. My wife was raised in the Pacific Northwest, I was raised in New England.  My wife’s family came to this country in the late 1600’s, my family came over in the early 1800’s. Turns out her father’s side of the family and my mother’s side of the family both lived in the same Massachusetts town in the 1800’s. We had no idea until after we were married and she began doing our family geneologies. 

We both have similar autoimmune diseases. My wife has psoriatic arthritis, diagnosed before we were married. I have rheumatoid arthritis, and I was diagnosed after we got married.

I’m not sure if this is weird or just neurotic, but both me and DH hate it when a packet (doesn’t matter what it is) is opened upside down. Don’t know why, it’s just a pet peeve we have shared long before we met.

We have eerily similar tastes for the weird. As in we both like obscure music, indie movies, and books about strange subjects. Oddly enough it’s never the same stuff but the other person ends up liking it anyway.

mrsbarack :  we are the same way! We were at the fair the other day and couldn’t understand how people were wearing short dresses and sandals or tube tops and booty shorts. It just looks so uncomfortable when you are going to be walking miles. 

Another thing we have in common is that we both love Star Trek! But we prefer watching the deep space nine episodes.

When we first met each other, I was in the middle of reading a strange and pretty obscure post-modernist book.  I heard about it online and no one I talked to had ever even heard of it and when I would describe it to them I’d get a lot of confused “wtf” looks.  But I was loving it.  Within the first week of us talking, I mentioned over text that I was reading, and his reaction was something along the lines of “I LOVE THAT BOOK!”

Not a huge coincidence, but we both have an extremely varied taste in music, covering all genres from metal to rap to country.  There are a couple of pretty obscure songs (never played on the radio) that we both realised early on that we loved.  As in, when we were dating, I’d put something on and he’d be like HOW DO YOU KNOW THIS SONG? It’s great because we both have the same subscription to a music streaming service, and we both like the songs we put on it.

We both have dust allergies. God help our future children.

We actually have so much in common tbh.

We have exactly the same skin tone. Translucent white with freckles. When we spoon we match perfectly. Our ancestors were probably cousins in some tiny Welsh village 😆

teamroro :  I don’t even remember how it came up, but over drinks we discovered that we both have always wanted to go to the Galapagos Islands for the wildlife, especially the giant tortoises. I must have mentioned it first because he made me come back to his apartment to see this book that he had on animals of the Galapagos, so it definitely wasn’t him just pretending so that I’d fall for him all over again. I say again because we had been broken up for a while before seeing each other again that night.

We both skipped first grade. Also, our parents got divorced when we were around the same age, and remarried to our step parents around the same time. It’s nice to have a partner who understands what that’s like.
