If there is 'nothing in common' - a relationship will not even be sparked, I think; because attraction does not come from nowhere. Even if this would 'only' be physical/visual attraction.And so - as it's already under way, there must be factors that made the connection.The other one being 'very different' (as the question suggests) can be a strong reason for curiosity, interest and attraction.I see that individual personality (open-ness, liberal views on life, high knowledge/interest level, and similar...) can make a relationship work.I have a partner who is from a different country/culture, different religion, and we even don't share much of our languages). She is shy and calm; I am more on the... quirky... side.We do share our views on how to (or not to) live; and our life goals match.The latter ARE things we 'have in common' - and it's why it works for us.If there's indeed NOTHING about partners that they share: I deem it impossible to build anything beyond a one-night-stand.
Actually no commonality, different culture and a language barrier worked best for me.
You can't have absolutely nothing in common. You are both humans, you both like to be happy and healthy. That's a start. My husband and I both come from different cultures and have different personalities but that just makes us more interested in each other. He has different hobbies and interests than me, sees like different than i do. But we do have similar lifestyles. We both don't like to drink, party or dance. We both are introverts who likes to keep to ourselves. Other than that, he likes video games and i like to do bible study. He is not even religious. We both want a happy, loving marriage. We both want no money problems. We both love our children. We're both nice people who like to help others. We both don't care for pets... What i am saying is there must be something you have in common.Like you both hate liars.You both hate wasting money or being taken advantage of. You both like to invest money... etcMy husband and I clicked on, we both had northern accents.
This is the best
I think if you both partners really want it to work, they will do whatever to make it work. But from experience, it may not work. I think shared values is very important. If you both don't mutually agree on certain things, it can be a huge deal breaker. And actually tear you both apart.
I don't know how you would get through even one date if you had NOTHING in common!
Usually not. But thanks to misunderstandings they can last for years.
You're saying "nothing" so I'm goona say that's a hard no.
It can work but you would be at a disadvantage. All relationships take work but if you start with more mutual understanding you might not have to put in as much work. If you start without much in common and with less mutual understanding (through cultural norms and such) then you can make it work but you'll have to put in even more effort to bridge the gap. If you both enjoy each other's company you will spend the time to learn about each other and to understand each other and you will find things in common even if it means you have to try new things.
Only way I could imagine is if there are "meta" or "potential" things in common. What I mean by that is that there's a potential for you to discover things you share in common once either of you try them.If I use a simple example, say you two like totally different foods. But our favorite foods are based on what we've tried. If we try new ones, we might find new favorites, and a couple starting off disliking each other's favorites might find new ones that become a mutual favorite. That's what I mean by "meta" or "potential".
Yes. You just have to be very open minded and be willing to try new things with your partner. Be open to what they like and enjoy and introduce them to what makes you happy. Its a more adventurous kind of relationship because you both with constantly be learning new things about each other and creating fun experiences with each other. However, there ther are those who prefer to have similarities to have a more stable foundation to build on. Just make sure that your partner is as open minded and adventurous as you are otherwise the relationship might not work.
Yes, the relationship can absolutely work. There needs to be a desire to communicate though. I don't know why this happened, but I was talking to a girl from another country, who I didn't have much in common with. She and I had always gotten along well in college. For whatever reason, she stopped communicating with me. She had decided that I couldn't be trusted, and that I was controlling her. If she hadn't stopped communicating with me; everything would have been fine. To be fair; I have gotten the impression that there may have been some mental issues going on there as well.
I think it could if you love and respect one another. For example - a girl who likes painting and drawing could marry an athlete who likes football and wrestling. As long as they are able to have happy meals and have common morals and are willing to do things the other person likes - I think it would work.
You guys have to have something in common like similar values and hobbies, and work at it. Different cultures is not a problem as long as you compromise and be open.DIfferent personalities just depends on couple.. how different are we talking? Depends what the individual wants. Sometimes people want someone to balance them out.
If you have already determined that you have literally nothing in common, then there is zero hope for you. You or he will always be adjusting and that gets tiring REALLY quickly. It means that your relationship is doomed from the start and has a life expectancy of a month, tops.
I think it depends. I mean, if you're a bubbly party girl and he's a quiet workaholic, that shouldn't be a big deal but it could be problematic if it's things like... you like playing music when you chill but he hates music or he's a vet but you hate animals, things like that.
Well that's how my situation is. She's from the north part of the country so different beliefs, culture, language and ideology. I'm from the southern part. But there's love between us and it's working good so far. There's a few arguments over silly things but otherwise we good.So if 2 people genuinely like each other and wanna be together, there always gonna be a chance at a relationship.
Thank you for your opinion it's so great
Sure, the heart has it's reasons that reasons don''t explain... It could happen that you would fall in love with someone who has nothing in common because you don't control who you love and are passionate for... However I do feel in the case of a long term relationship, those differences could catch up with them... So could it work yes, forever and ever, possibly but not entirely likely...
Not really, it would get to a point where u both will have nothing to say and get bored of one another then startbresenting each other , you're best to find someone that has a lot in common , it's ok to have a few things hot in common but if u have nothing in common then it's a waste of time
I think that it could work... not great in the beginning maybe but so long as your goals are aligned and work with each other. Like this you will likely have the opportunity to grow together. Possibly create new things you do have in common. Sounds rough though.
If your personalities complement each other and you're interested in your differences, you do have things in common. Your differences could be your strengths... If you enjoy being with each other. You laugh together. Those are things in common.
Its more difficult but not impossible. Two people can decide to grow and develop together and put in the work. This can be said to those who have tons in common.
Opposites attract. I raised to be respectful and never cuss around my family, raised in a really rich family and my boyfriend is the polar opposite, we’ve been together six years now and have two kids. If it’s meant to work out it will.
Different cultures, backrounds, and personalities could work together, but it depends on the situation. But if you have drastically different beliefs, it's not going to work out.
Depense how much of nothing in common you have, but it can work but it's going to need a lot of work.
Yes! Goes with the saying “opposites attract”... it works in relationships well too
I have to say yes. My husband I couldnt be more different in culture upbringing and childhood experience. But in the end we agree on most things. And get along really well.
If you have nothing in common I would say it's going to be tough unless you're open to new things. So it depends on how you are as people and if you're looking for someone who has a different lifestyle for you to explore with then
Sure, if you like each other, you can both enjoy learning and exploring what makes you both who you are.
I think it could but with different values, I couldnt
What if you are exactly the same person. The dude I like is so crazily similar it scares me to no end.
They say opposites attract... being in a relatonship with someone similar to you can get stale. Having differences is healthy in a relationship.
I don't think it will last, because the feelings will eventually go.And whne they do what holds you together?
NOTHING will be very difficult. And probably not long term. There has to be a bit of similarities in the relationship to make it somewhat interesting. Like what would you talk about?
In the terms you mentions. Yes, cultures and backgrounds those are things that can be overcome. I've had successful relationships with women from completely opposite my background. Long term relationships.
No bc when your together what are you going to do or say to each other. so whats the point. have to have something in common to at least build off from.
Absolutely not I know that say opposites attract but you have to have somethings in common of not what will you build on you can't be going in two totally different directions in life
Nothing in common?So what do you like about each other? Lol you’re looks 😛
Yes, It can work But it needs lots of sacrifice and patience
Well... I suppose it can, but why would you WANT it to?
Self-interest (money, accommodation) and sex seem the only tangible things left which could keep you coming back.
I don't think so, you need to share some interests besides of sex for a working relationship.
well depending if you like each other , but not if your both COMPLETELY diffrent
I do not see how. But I see it in couples, and wonder what keeps them together. Maybe it's possible? Maybe it's forced? I'm not sure lol
Are you serious asking that? Give two people have nothing in common and I'll move the moon to your backyard. Humanity is the first thing we all share, don't we?
Yes i been with someone 1 year and half just having sex and smoking
I don't think you need anything in common as long as u enjoy their presence and are happy with them it shouldn't matter what u do or dont have in common
It didn't work for my past experience with relationships.
Opposites attract. I tend to get along with people least like me.
I don't think so. A year after I got to know my crush, I finally found something I have in common with her.
Depends on how u define work... does it end in marriage? Or simply enough not to be cheated
Oh cud u follow back...
No, I don’t think so. I want someone who is very compatible with me in values, morals and interests.
No , as there will never be any connection , probably end up repelling each other if anything
It can.Depends on both how stupid/developed they are.
as long as you have sex in common thats all thats important :3
It can work for a little while but after a while it doesn't work anymore, trust me 16 year's of marriage and finding out it doesn't work anymore...
No. I feel a relationship under those circumstances wouldn’t work.
Not a serious one in my opinion. It's quite toxic to me to be with someone completely different...
Yes as long as there is love, respect and trust it can work.
Yes. But with such vast differences, it may take a lot of effort at first.
That's gonna be tough.
Yes of course. All you need is a sexual connection and it's good. At least for a couple months and that's plenty for a relationship.
@JP_ManThat will not last long. At best it would be friends with benefits not a relationship.
There is no use for it to last more then a couple of months.
They say opposites attract so why not?
No. The lack of commonalities becomes problematic
Maybe. How tight is her pussy?
Thanks for accepting my friendship request
