Default why we're with who (BG from another thread)


BoringGuy said this and it got me thinking. (didn't want to hijack the other thread)

But if you are such a wonderful person that we want to be together, we'll be together no matter how many hobbies or activities we do separately.
I have been thinking on this. FBF and I don't deeply share many interests. We're generally interested in lots of things. He's very into gaming, and video in particular; and science, and the desert, and photography. We do like a road trip.

Mostly, I feel sane, and real, and deliriously happy to be with him. I've been trying to analyze that, perhaps I shouldn't. It leads to unproductive thoughts, like what the hell does he see in me.

So, I like that. We're such wonderful people we want to be together, regardless of what we're into separately.

Thoughts? Stories? Are you mismatched? Peas in a pod?
