We bonded over our mutual love of Blue Moon (beer).

This is random, but on one of our first dates we somehow got on the subject of personal hygiene, and we discovered we both wash with bar soap first, and then body wash in the shower. We also both like to shower before AND after going to the gym. I have no idea how common these actually is, as I usually don’t discuss my shower habits with people lol.

The both of us breathe really slow. My whole life I always thought I was so weird because I could never keep up with how fast people breathe and he has apparently always felt the same way and he said he knew that I was the one when I was up against his chest and he noticed that we breathe at the same exact pace haha

I can’t think of many odd similarities… I guess we complement each other instead of match?

The only one that comes to mind is we both work with law enforcement – but he’s a scientist and I’m an editor, so in nontypical ways (and via separate job paths… neither of us works in this realm because of the other’s job).

Both of our mothers share the same last 4 digits of their social security numbers. His mom passed when he was in high school and my mom had always taken this as a “sign” to take him on as a second son, which she does.

We both love opera and hate Hamilton. Also, when I am dieting, we weigh the same.

His last name is my mom’s maiden name!

He went to the same kindergarten as my brother and sister over seas. I was past kindergarten when I was overseas so I didn’t attend the same one. 

We are both teachers.

We want to travel to the same places, and are equally uninterested in certain continents. 

We both dislike ginger and papaya 

Although we are opposites, we actually think alike in a lot of ways.

Although not really in common, but kind of…….rather then the normal 4, he was born with 5 wisdom teeth, I was born with 3.  How odd is that?

I’m from Maine and he’s from Tennessee, but we both lived in the same area of Boston in 2006-2007 with our respective now-ex SOs. We didn’t meet until 2013 in Florida.

Not necessarily in common but my fiancé has had the numbers 821 at the end of his email for 20+ years randomly and that’s my birthday. My mom also died 3 years ago and they buried someone too close to her to where we complained well I met my fiancé a year and a half later and the person next to her has his last name. Our birthdays are also 3 days apart and we are both nurse!!!

hisfavoritewife :  This happened to us too, our parents both have the exact same anniversary (day and year)! Unfortunately it was on a Tuesday the year we got married but we considered it.

We both have younger twin brothers. About the same age difference (his brothers are 18 months younger, mine are 2 years). Both sets are non identical. Both are the “first” set of twins in the family.

Before we even started dating, lots of weird coincidental things started occurring. We were roommates and we ended up buying the same style bed without shopping together. One day, we went out and bought the same brand dish soap and sponge (without us even running out of either). He even had a dream that was a continuation of one of my dreams, without me ever telling him about this dream beforehand. There are many more strange similarities that we found out about, despite us being the complete opposite in other things… like zodiac signs (6 yrs apart) and horoscope signs (6 months apart)
