Reasons for Dating – Interests
This may sound elementary and almost silly, but another objective during dating is to get to know what your partner likes and doesn’t like. Sharing common interests develops a deep friendship that will carry you through times when the romance and passion aren’t as evident as they once were – and will be again.
Now this is not to say you have to share all interests. That’s nearly impossible! But if you don’t share enough, it might be hard to keep dating your partner after you’re married.
The bottom line here: don’t brush aside this lighter part of dating. Share with each other and see if some of your partner’s interests might become some of your new-found interests.
