Is there a single word or expression for people who share similar interests? Can the word "alike" be used in this case?

  • Like i said, similar in interests , not appearance. Im searching for a word, but expressions also helps.

    Perhaps if you could define the meanings of these idioms, and supply links the user would be better informed. It's obvious that the OP is not a native speaker (please see previous edit history).

I can't really help much without more context but you're probably looking for like-minded, defined by the online Merriam-Webster as

having a like disposition or purpose : of the same mind or habit of thought

For example:

She enjoyed the club because she could meet like-minded people.


homogeneous adjective uk /ˌhɒm.əˈdʒiː.ni.əs/ /ˌhəʊ.mə-/ us /ˌhoʊ.moʊˈdʒiː-/ › consisting of parts or people that are similar to each other or are of the same type: a homogeneous group/society The population of the village has remained remarkably homogeneous. Compare (Definition of homogeneous from the Cambridge Academic Content Dictionary © Cambridge University Press)
