2. Monkey see monkey do
It’s not that unusual for two people who are interested in each other to discover that they like a lot of the same things. Sometimes the truth may end up getting stretched a bit for the sake of courtship, but no reasonable person expects a romantic interest to be a carbon copy of themselves. Expressing an enthusiastic interest in everything that your love interest likes could make you look like you don’t have any interests of your own. You are likely to be more attractive to the other person if you demonstrate a little independence, and you might even find out that the other person is truly interested in some of the things you are genuinely interested in.
