The dating world isn’t the easiest to navigate through. Chances that you’ll find a match perfect in every way that shares all of your interests are slim to none. We’re not saying there aren’t any hot women out there looking for someone to date because there are. We are saying that it’s going to be tough to find one who likes all the things you like. That fact brings up the issues of compatibility. You might land a date with a woman you’re genuinely interested in only to find that you have little to nothing in common. This doesn’t mean that you stand no chance. It does mean that you have to be patient and a little innovative.
Like we said, finding a woman who is passionate about everything you’re passionate about is difficult to do. It’s still possible to date and be happy with someone that you don’t have much in common with. A key component to that process is being open-minded. So she has little to no affinity to your taste in music-does that mean that you don’t like hers? You won’t know until you try. So invite her to share her music library with you one night over drinks at your place. You might hate most of what she listens to but you also might find something you enjoy. Just the fact that you’re willing to be exposed to her interests will go a long way towards endearing her even more to you.
Try New Things
Sure, you might not share current interests. That doesn’t mean there aren’t things out there that neither of you have been exposed to that you won’t both like. Don’t be afraid to try new things in order to find some common ground. Try new foods together. If neither of you have been to live theatre, check out a show. Attend an art show at a museum. Try an outdoor activity like cross-country or downhill skiing. Chances are good that you’ll find something that you both genuinely enjoy.
Share With Her
Just like you took the time to be exposed to her interests, ask her to do the same for you. Start with something simple, like music, movies, or books. Don’t immediately pick something challenging that most women have no affinity for, like attending a hockey game. Instead, try to find something you enjoy doing that has the biggest likelihood of attracting her attention. Once you’ve found something she likes, you can slowly build up from there. Don’t be afraid to venture back to things she didn’t like at first. Continued exposure to something like music or TV shows can actually change a person’s opinion over time.
It’s easy to get frustrated when you have nothing in common with her. If you really are interested in her, however, it’s a good idea to exercise patience. Time spent with each other will gradually exposed shared interests. Being too impatient and jumping ship before you really know each other means you didn’t really give it a chance.
