    So long story short. I made a date with someone I met online. He seems nice and we have been texting back and forth for 2 days lol.

    But yesterday he told me he was watching dancing with the stars, and today he told me he was watching glee. Now I don't want to offend any of you that like these types of shows. But personally I can't stand this kind of stuff. I much prefer south park, tosh.0, venture brothers, and stuff like that.

    I don't want to blow off a date because the guy has different tastes than me.... but I do not know if we will connect. I do not want to assume anything, but I am imagining a guy that essentially likes the opposite stuff as me. I mean on the plus side he likes outdoor activities like camping and he likes to cook (I like to eat), so I guess we aren't complete opposites. But it seems like many guys I meet... r just.... not into the stuff I am : (

    Any of u guys had good relationships with guys with very different interests than you?



    EDIT: I am such an upfront, say what u think, kinda guy, that I feel like telling him that I am not sure we will connect all that well but that worst comes to worst I would love to be friends.




    BTW this is the only reason to watch glee in my opinion:

    I can't speak for you, but I definitely wouldn't think that a difference in television shows is a reason to break off a date with someone.

    Been with my total opposite for 25+ years. He loves DWTS, GLEE, all the reality shows etc and I can't stand to even be in the same room when they're on.
    I like documentaries, SouthPark, Family Guy, Curb Your Enthusiasm etc and he absolutely hates those shows.

    The only tv we can sort of agree on is the news

    I agree with beneful1, and have to say, I've been with my partner for almost 14 years, and we are very different people, and it's our differences that make each of us stronger, and better people. I love him because of his differences, not because of his similarities to me. If I wanted to love someone like me, I'd choose the easy route and masturbate. Celebrate and cherish those that are different from you.

    You haven't even met (chatting online, texting, or IMing hardly count as meeting, btw).

    I would not want to date my clone. I like meeting people with different experiences, different points of view, and different tastes than myself.

    The problem is if you can't respect the differences.

    TV is just tv. It's hardly a reason to want to date a guy or not date him.

    Me and my bf have different taste in TV shows but have very similar "core values" (money, activism, cultural...etc)

    We got into fight several times over what I watch like "So you think you can dance" or "True Blood"... so now he'll put on ear phone or go into the other room to read while I watch them.

    Its not a big deal really.

    Perhaps both of you can convince each other to delve into your respective TV genres? I know plenty of couples who do that. Plus, if there are differences to be had, TV shows or media choices are a good one.

    Find shows which you two both like. Watch those.
    Or, fuck instead.

    Heck, I haven't owned a TV since 2002. So, it will be very difficult for me to find shows which we both like. icon_lol.gif

    Just hang in there. No point in putting the towel in that fast. You don't have to share the same interests to be together. For example, many girls like to shop and many guys like to watch sports, doesn't mean, they have to necessarily do them together. icon_smile.gif

    I like watching south park, tosh.0, adult swim, glee, and sometimes DWTS, i didn't know those tastes were exclusive, there are shows i wouldn't give them a chance before but friends turn me into fans, maybe your tv taste might not be so different either, although i just read that you decided to go for it, so good for you.

    With beneful on this one @ 10 years myself...they're things we share and a lot we don't. How boring would it otherwise?
    He literally screams when he hears Oprah's voice and I would rather die then see Vanna flip a letter.
    On the other hand: he actually got pissed when I deleted Daily Shows he hadn't seen and I had to buy the entire series Gilmore Girls.

    Just because doesn't have the exact same interests in you doesn't mean that you will not be compatible with him.

    Thanks to online sites, everybody is now super selective whom they wish to interact...

    However people become less tolerable for those who don't follow along the same interests...

    Give the guy a chance.

    Depends. Have sex with him and if he's good in bed, then try to endure all that crap. If not, then no, of course. Just being a bitch for 15 mins should be all you can take. Why let his choices of TV fuck you too?

    SMACK!
    Dude.
    He cooks and he likes to go camping.

    I'd keep him around even if he watched The Wiggles and Lifetime.

    Sorry, but taste in TV shows doesn't count as a reason not to date someone.

    Worry about your personalities, if you actually have chemistry, if he is trustworthy???? The big things.....

    I mean, if you're masculine and he's feminine, it may not totally work out, but I wouldn't rule it out.
