Notice: Forums will be shutdown by June 2019

To focus on better serving our members, we've decided to shut down the POF forums.

While regular posting is now disabled, you can continue to view all threads until the end of June 2019. Event Hosts can still create and promote events while we work on a new and improved event creation service for you.

Thank you!

can a relationship be successful when there is nothing in common between them?Page 4 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)

Sounds like a case of connected vs not connected.

No right or wrong answer, but definitely not compatible IMHO.

I am not at all connected and my ex was VERY connected.

She was fun and I committed easily. This does not equal a sure thing.

I hope you two find happiness:)

I suspect this is about more than just 'do we both like Activity X', it's about values, goals, about different perceptions of independence/togetherness.

I am going through something very similar myself (though with a newer relationship). It is tough to truly care/respect someone but also recognize that perhaps the differences (in 'values', in relationship goals) between you and the other person are not likely not going to be able to be bridged without someone essentially giving in on things they've come to realize are very important to them.
