Despite popular notions that point to and propagate the theory that a relationship is more stable if the two partners share similar interests and likings I personally do not agree with this as I feel that the relationship would become monotonous and staid. There would be a wider variety of activities and choices if my partner did not share the same choices as I. Yes, there definitely is the question of differences which could lead to quarrels and disagreements but if we truly love one another there would be mutual respect for each other's likes and dislikes. Also if we are different it would add spice to the relationship and leave so much open to explore and discover about each other in the relationship.

In fact, if we say shared similar professions it could lead to a tussle and competition as to who is better. If we are in different professions it would foster healthy respect and each would feel proud of the partner's achievement without any jealous feelings, or insecurity of being inferior to the partner and each can move ahead freely in their respective fields. Also, both can gain so much from each other as each one would have different working circles. Rubin T. (1980) says that mature relating involves seeing the other individual as separate and whole, with all the limitations inherent in being human. I have met someone who meets my qualifications. After this girl, I feel that I have become more mature surprisingly. I thought when I met this person I would be just as wild as I always was in my younger days. However, since meeting her I've mellowed out and become more mature. The criterion that has changed is the third one. I thought a person who was dissimilar would be better but that was not to happen. The girl I am going out with is very similar to me. A few of my fears are coming to the fore though as I feel that despite being like-minded our communication is surprisingly hard. I thought it would be very simple considering our similar personalities but at times it's a pain. Neither one of us likes to make choices that involve both of us.
