okay not a 100% clone, but how often do you run across women and/or men that are very similar to you

I am talking multiple areas in which you may be alike

this includes

political views
morals
thoughts on family
relationship styles
humor
how you dress


etc....


this is not a comprehensive list, but I know since I only listed a few things many may focus on those alone, but there are many other areas where you and another are synced

do you feel like you connect with a lot or a good number of people on multiple levels regularly or do you feel like you rarely come across people that are similar to you?

a guy I was talking to

birthdays a week apart, both like scandal lol, slick ass mouths, people think were being rude when we just telling a joke, rude glasses, same height , shower with the door open and lights off lol.. it was freakin me out

I rarely meet people with so many similarities. I think im normal but people ask why I do this and that all the time. simple things like how I eat

not ever where I live.

People here are boring/traditional, generally unfriendly, and uninspiring.

I miss Cali.

I do know one guy here that is very very similar to me...we have this unspoken understanding.... no women though.

I literally only have two people in my life like this.  My husband and my bestie.  I'm Christian but pretty liberal so I think that alone makes it difficult.  There is only one other Black RN on my floor and we really don't have much in common.  

political views - hubs and moms
morals - hubs, parents, siblings and bestie
thoughts on family - hubs, fam, bestie

relationship styles - no one Cry I often feel like I have to hold back on my happiness because it comes off as bragging.  
humor - Many people I come across actually.  Laughter is the basis of probably most of my acquaintance relationships 
how you dress - I guess a lot of women my age but I do tend to "overdress" probably but I live in a pretty hippie town


etc.... - I will add
education - hubs and two girl friends

financial fitness/ spending habits - this is one of the hardest things for me.  I'm serious about becoming debt free and it's really hard for me to find friends who live on cash on hand.  Technically we could do a lot more but it would be on credit and the only thing we use credit for is family emergencies that require immediate travel.

health consciousness - I have completely given up on this.  I buy mostly organic and avoid red meat.  I have good reason; my family health history would make me a ticking bomb if I lived devoid of health consciousness.  I have not one friend who is the same way.  I meet women trying to lose weight everywhere but as far as preventive health naw.

Good topic.  I often feel like a loner in my beliefs/values.  I wonder how many other people feel the same.

Never.
It's hard to top how weirdly convoluted my personality is.

5 star thread btw

Im not super liberal but I find myself a little more liberal than most Christians these days..

I do think location can play a big factor in this, when I was in California I met tons of similar people with shared qualities/same mentality because most people out there have a different approach and view of life than here in these old, boring conservative states.
