better than cheese and cheese, now thats boring!
Hm. I always think of it as what can the other person bring to the table of "relationships". Wouldn't it be sooooo boring if you sat around talking about the same stuff? Nothing new would ever happen!
I don't think it has to be a problem. I've been with my boyfriend nearly four years, he's a manly man, good at maths and science, very practical and technically minded. I'm a very girly girl, love fashion, study English, and I'm possibly the least practical person one could wish to meet. But we get on really well and are very close. Cheesy as it sounds, our values and outlook on life is what we have mostly in commoon.
Me and my b/f couldn't be more different from each other if we tried! I study History at university and enjoy writing and reading and speculating about things, whereas he's a hard core I.T geek - nothing of which I know about, plus he has 3 monitors in his bedroom! But it works..
