How important is it to have things in common with someone you want to have a relationship with?

Like hobbies, interests, beliefs etc? Are having these things in common essential to getting into a relationship with someone? Or is it more based on other factors like looks and personality?

Sometimes I feel like I really don't have much of anything in common with people and that will just keep holding me back..

  • It's not important to me at all to have the same interest in common as long as are personalities match.

    My boyfriend and I have absolutely nothing in common, but we get along great.

    For example, I'm into animal rights and protection while he's into hunting :(
