I'd rather date someone with similar interests then completely different.
For instance, I would find it very attractive if a girl liked rock, which is my music taste... or if a girl also likes art or whatnot. Being able to share passions would be pretty cool. Similar lifestyles and stuff I feel would lead to better compatibility and less conflict. I know people who are complete opposites who work well together, but I don't think the saying "opposites attract" apply to everyone.
That being said, someone slightly different is a bit better than exactly the same in my opinion. You want to kind of explore the other person (if that makes any sense) and having someone with slightly different behaviors can lead to a better person yourself. Together, you can make a couple rather than just two clones. Having similar interests I would say brings out the best in each other.1

There has to be some similar interests for us to connect and sustain a relationship. Otherwise what would we talk about? But I most certainly don't want to date my clone. A few opposite interests are a must. That way there is opportunity to grow and learn. In fact I prefer dating guys from a different cultural background, so there is more variety of things to share with each other...0
