Ended Dating: But I wonder if this was the right choice...? watch

    To cut the story short. We were both in the process of getting to know each other, but I wasn't certain how I felt about the idea of being relationship and whether I liked them romantically.

    I suppose part of the reason is that they are extremely different to what I thought I'd in a partner. In the sense that they like lots of things that I'm not so keen on (I know it sounds extremely shallow... judgement based on hobbies/interests. That's got to be worse than judging someone based on their physical appearances.)

    So ultimately we decided it was better that we should stick as friends, and I could easily see myself becoming extremely good friends with this person.

    But since we made that decision. I still find myself thinking: Does those hobbies really matter that much?

    And occasionally wondering if we both made the right choice...

    Am I just suffering withdrawal from my friend? :p:

    What sort of hobbies are we talking about?

    And I don't think there's much shame in not being with someone because of their hobbies. You have to have a few things in common, especially at the start of a relationship.

    Just be friends and see how it goes for now.
    I feel horrible.

    But it's just really 'stereotypical' activities such as shopping/make-up/cinema. Maybe I'm being way too unrealistic and expecting people to fit into a certain image in my head (one that doesn't currently exist)

    It's kind of weird since I also feel that this person will become my closest friend at university in the distance future... at least I hope so.
