How important is it for your date, bf/gf, or spouse to have common interests? Is it a deal breaker if they have no common interests at all.
For me, having common interests is pretty important. The girl doesn't have to be exactly like me but if we have absolutely nothing in common then there'd be nothing to talk about, at least after awhile.
Having said that, from my experience, while its good to be with someone who has common interests, it is also important to not associate your common interests with a person too much, because if it ends badly, you may not want to think of those interests because it reminds you of them.
I recently saw a girl who has a lot of things in common who is very attractive and great personality but she just revealed to me she just got out of a long term relationship a few months ago so I'm very cautious.

Common interest is pretty important, if the both have nothing in common then the relationship won't work. Hanging out would be boring for one or the other. .. my boyfriend and I love horror movies, we like metal music, love sushi.. hanging out at places like the mall.. etc.0
