Couples today meet through a wide variety of means, and some of them may have found each other through a hobby or avocation. For them, the world may be full of people who do not share their passion for a favourite subject, so finding that special someone who does can be a great start to a long term relationship. They might find that sharing their intellectual interests can broaden their own horizons while supporting each other in their separate pursuits.
It can be trying to be with someone physically attractive while having nothing more in common, and many relationships of this type tend to falter quickly. Those who can share their passions on an intellectual level often find it deepens their love and respect for each other. Sharing becomes a bridge to bind them closer, but it also gives each person in the partnership an opportunity to be with their significant other in a manner that supports their individuality.
