Why Shared Interest Dating Is So Important

First of all, in case you're not completely sure about what shared interest dating is, it is either a virtual online, or real world meet up of a group of members from a dating site, all of whom have at least one similar, shared interest. Perhaps it's gardening, dining out, travelling, or caving.

These shared interests are important, and for two reasons.

Firstly, it's always important whenever you have a date and start seeing someone for there to be at least some shared interests. Whilst it may sometimes be true that opposites attract, successful relationships are rarely based on opposites, but on shared values and interests. Some differences can be fun of course, but there has to be some common ground for it to work in the long term.

The second reason why shared interest dating works so well is that at these kind of events it offers people a guarantee of interesting conversation. Knowing that everyone else at the event has the same interest as you means that you'll always have something to talk about, some common ground to explore and a good conversation to enjoy.

This helps people to relax, and when you're relaxed you're much more your true self, and this is what helps turn a shared dating event into the first exciting step towards a new relationship.

Shared interests don't have to be terribly exciting, and you'll find many shared interest dating events provide opportunities for single parents to get together, for teachers to meet up, or even for those in the armed forces to meet other kindred spirits.

It could be that your shared interest is gardening, in which case the event might even be organised at a garden centre or horticultural event, or if your shared interest is wine, then a wine tasting event might be offered!
