Cupid’s Advice:

Although many say that opposites attract, it’s good to have some things in common with your partner, too.  Cupid shares some important similarities:

1. Shared interests: You don’t have to like everything that your partner likes.  However, it’s a good idea to like some of the same things.  Take a cue from Aniston and Theroux who point to their shared love of acting and fashion.

2. Goals: You and your sweetheart should share similar goals.  What are your thoughts on marriage and children?  Your viewpoints on this question should eventually coincide or intersect so that your relationship can continue into the future.

3. Opinions: If you or your partner has strong opinions on certain topics, it may be a good idea to have similar thoughts on those subjects.  If you don’t, you’ll need to be able to agree to disagree in order to avoid yearning for the single life.
