Yes and no.
I like girls who aren't like me in the surface, but are like me on the inside.
I realize that sounds a bit cliche so lemme give you an example. I can confidently say that, while it may not seem like it, I can be a bit of a psychopath. My temper is pretty bad and when I lose my temper, all compassion and care for the consequences go out the window. I met a girl way back who seemed at first to be your very sweet, very sheltered and gentle young woman. I liked her well enough so I decided to try things out. Then she started admitting to me that she's a little crazy in much the same way as I described myself. She told me about how a guy touched her inappropriately once and she gave him a head injury. Another time, she told me that she punched a wall hard because she was pissed off at some people at her basketball game.
She expected me to be scared away. In reality, I couldn't think much else other than "that's my girl."0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

I think it's good to have a balance. I'll use my boyfriend and I as an example:
I'm white, grew up in Washington state in Spokane and Seattle, am into fancyish things like brie cheese and cafe mistos, into makeup, not close with my parents, grew up strong in academic subjects like math, and want to be a lawyer.
Meanwhile, my boyfriend is full blooded Native American from New Mexico, is a simple country guy, favorite dessert is a vanilla ice cream cone from Dairy Queen, grew up weak in academics but really into film, and is a mama's boy.
When we go into nice restaurants, I order for him because he thinks I understand the menu better. In New Mexico, he orders for me because we both know he understands the menu better and will help me not get anything spicy.
While we are extremely different in that sense, we also have a lot in common. We both like to have discussions about philosophy, books, movies, the meaning of life, etc. We are both extremely romantic and do homemade gifts for each other. We are both goofy as hell and are always laughing at dumb jokes. We have the same family values and want to adopt a child. We believe in universal healthcare but don't support abortion. There's a bunch more, but, most importantly- we LOVE coffee.
I think having a lot of differences creates an interesting relationship. However, certain things like family values, and other "deal breakers" you have are important.1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
