that you didn't really have anything in common with, that maybe you get along with really well but don't share the same taste in music and movies, etc.?

No, can't say I have. Differences in taste aren't always deal breakers though.

absolutely! I'm going through that now. She is all about fashion, Britney Spears type music, and chick flicks. I'm into food, hxc/metal, and i aint really into movies at all and it is working out really well. All i really do is act interested in the stuff she is into. Only downfall is that i know more about handbags and heels then any hetero should. lol

LOL, yes. 15 years of age difference is about as extreme as that gets. She was into old funk type music, like The Commodores, Sly and the Family Stone, Lionel Richie, and cheesy shit like Neil Diamond. Liked chick flicks, and was really into Sex and the City. We had basically nothing in common at all. And we were together for 3 years, if that can tell you anything. The only thing we had in common was the love we had for each other.

Always differences, but where we had practically no interests in common? Once. Dude played it cool for the first month or two while we were getting to know each other, and he feigned interest in shit that I liked. But then once the relationship part kicked in, he was completely intolerant of my interests/opinions. Heaven forbid I ever expressed an opinion differing from his, I'd get chewed out for having bad taste or being stupid. Awesome. Needless to say, did not last long.

It could work just fine though, as long as you are both tolerant of your differences. Hell, part of the fun in getting to know someone is that you're constantly being exposed to new shit. I definitely can't get into every band or movie a guy suggests, but a lot of the time I'm pleasantly surprised by the things I end up liking. And he can play his video games all he wants, haha, I don't need to be into them... just like he doesn't need to like chick flicks or jazz music.

i actually prefer that to some extent. unless they're just a fucking stupid contrarian, i tend to like having a different, but informed perspective on things, and i don't really get anything out of hanging out with a siamese twin that blows smoke up my ass all the time. i also like to have some privacy and my own world outside my life with a girlfriend, so having someone that isn't into the same stuff can be ideal for that. two girls come to mind right off the bat: one was a med student, the other was a symphony violinist. both were way smarter than my scenester friends and had a lot more substantive stuff to say even if they didn't listen to neurosis.

my wife hates my music, can't stand playing video games does not watch a lick of sports

she watches those shitty VH1 and MTV shows, she CAN'T stand racial humour (which i find funny) and she is VERY organized when it comes to bills and making sure things are taken care of right away....which i'm the total opposite of.

but we get along great as far as i'm concerned and there are a ton of other things we enjoy together.

this is pretty much how i feel about it except i'd like to share a common interest in SOME things. almost every girl i've dated was the complete opposite of me and it always worked out for a good amount of time. like the one girl i'm involved with now, we have a lot in common that has nothing to do with music/movies/media/etc. and she blows my mind and i don't even know how to handle it sometimes, haha.

exactly. when your s/o has skills you don't have, and visa versa, you tend to be much more complementary as a whole and they actually add to your life rather than just running over the same ground.
