  • id do some research on them, its good to show interest in what your date is interested in.

  • I'd probably take the time to learn and thing or two about them. But then again, I wouldn't date a science geek unless I had that in common with him.

  • No. While I would listen to what he was telling me, I probably wouldn't remember much about them.

    It's good to take an interest in your SO's passions but SO shouldn't require that you share that same passion.

  • If science was something we have in common then yes but other wise why would I even care to remember it

  • No. My DH has told me eight million times what the HDMI cable he wanted was for, and I can't tell you why we needed it. That's ok. I've explained to him the difference between pancetta and bacon eighty times too.

  • Nope. My SO talks computers, I listen and have yet to retain. I talk baby/parenting stuff, he has yet to retain. That's us.

  • I think I just find out what their backgrounds were a little just to make small talk later on. But not I wouldn't go out of my way to memorize their names.
