....our shared love of reading obituaries in the newspaper

I meant to say: tell me what you and your partner first shared common ground on/first thing where you went "oh me too!!"

A shared dislike of mashed potato.

We were looking at the menu and talking about ordering a dish and both said "Eww, it comes with mash" at about the same time.

grin I love hearing the weird and wonderful things that herald love...

We both bonded over our love of dance and drama and performing. Something we both put on the back burner for our careers but 3 years on were starting to get back into different projects again and we love talking about it.

We met online dating and within a couple of messages discovered we both liked Game of Thrones (the books) and Firefly, and thought Daniel Craig was an inadequate Bond. That kept us going quite nicely in conversation until we discovered less frivolous common ground!

A love for reading, and a shared hatred for the word "banter"

We promised each other we would never take each other skiing.

A liking for Gilbert and Sullivan! We were colleagues and got chatting and it turned out we both fancied going to see Topsy Turvy (film about G&S that was out at the time) and neither of us knew anyone else who'd be remotely interested in it. So we went together. Neither of us was sure whether it was a 'proper date'. grin

YMCA. The song not the charitable organisation. Can't keep our hands by our sides once we hear the opening bars...

Sarcasm and alcohol 😳

Elvis Costello

(And a mutual hatred of musicals)

Extremely dry inappropriate sense of humour coupled with same moral values.

bluemoonchances Mon 19-Feb-18 13:34:54

Not dry inappropriate moral values, good treat everyone with respect moral values! Just in case that read wrong!!

We were watching a film with my then boyf. I can't even remember what it was, but there were a group of men in a bad situation and a stray deer came by and was shut in and they were going to shoot it but didn't and just let it go.

And my then boyfriend said "Well that was really stupid." And my (now)DH said "Well no because they are empathising with the deer because they too are..." and then we both said "trapped" at the same time and just shared this....look. And my then boyf just snorted really dismissively.

Music tastes and crosswords.

AllTheWayDown Mon 19-Feb-18 14:15:39

@sexyegg us too! I have never met anyone else who likes that film, we still find it childishly funny years later grin
Also our same (inappropriate) sense of humour.

BlackAmericanoNoSugar Mon 19-Feb-18 14:17:05

We met in the bridge club at university. Like two geeks in a pod.

sexyegg Mon 19-Feb-18 15:23:04

@AllTheWayDown glad we're not the only ones! I don't know many "adults" who think it's as funny as we do grin it gets quoted A LOT in our house!

Our shared love of interesting beers (mine: real ale, his: Belgian) and Linguistics

I used to like reading the obituaries with my Mom guessing how old people were when they died based on their names.

Maud and Arthur would be 81 and 86, Colin would be 55 and Chantelle passed away aged 25 etc.
