I need to make the following sentence smaller using least words but having exact meaning.

In Search of someone with same interests? If You're, Let's Chat

For that I was thinking to replace "with same interests" with a single word. I could use "someone similar", "someone common" or "someone alike". Could any of this word describe a person who has same interests? If no, then please suggest some more

  • with same interest? is romance involved? do you need adjective? I think you can make your sentence even shorter than that, like in search of your soulmate/match/kindred spirit. – haha Mar 10 '18 at 11:59

A person with similar interests is a like-minded person.


Having similar tastes or opinions.

‘a small group of like-minded friends’

‘Their interests are used to help define themselves and engage in social scenes with like-minded people.’

MW Learner's Dictionary:

like–minded adjective

: having similar opinions and interests

He joined a local activists' group, hoping to meet like-minded people. [=people who shared his opinions]


I think the word that you're looking for is coterie. It is a small group of people with similar interests.

Coterie (noun): a small group of people with shared interests, often one that does not want other people to join them.

Example: a coterie of writers.

[Cambridge English Dictionary]

  • The question is asking for a word to describe a person rather than a group. – KillingTime Sep 27 '20 at 10:19

I think you can use "someone alike" or else use "compatible"

So the sentence can be:

"In search of someone alike" or

"In search of someone compatible"


kindred spirit: a person whose interests or attitudes are similar to one's own.

You could also say that they had an affinity: adjective; of or relating to persons who share the same interests
