Having hobbies and interests in common with your partner is one of the best ways to ensure that you have lots to talk about and that you get to spend lots of time together.

So how do you meet someone who shares your interests?

Choose a niche dating website

Niche dating websites are sites that are built around a group of people who share a particular interest, hobby, or outlook. It means that from the start you will have something in common with everyone who has joined the website.

Tell people what you like

Use your online dating profile to tell people about who you are and what you are like. You don’t need to give out every detail about your life, but you should make sure that you include your favourite hobbies and interests.

Select all of your favourite things

If you have the option to tick boxes which tell people about your favourite things, then it’s easy to open up about what your favourite things without having to write too much.

Use your photos to show what you enjoy

As well as writing about what you enjoy doing, you can also use your dating profile photos to back up what you have said in your profile text. Use your photos to show some of your favourite places and some of your favourite activities.

Search for your perfect match

When you are searching for someone, try ticking some of your favourite hobbies and activities when you are selecting your search criteria. You can also search by keywords to see if people share your more obscure hobbies.

Be honest

To ensure that you meet someone who is just like you, it is essential that you are honest about what you like and don’t like. For example, don’t pretend to be a theatre buff if you just attend a pantomime once a year.
