We all do things for different reasons.
We expect different results, different behaviour, a different experience.
Someone else’s negative impression or opinion doesn’t have any influence on that experience.
Maybe you do both want the same things. Maybe you do both have the same tastes.
But equally likely is that your preferences are completely different. Regardless of the situation, you’re very unlikely to see it exactly the same way as anybody else.
What you love about something might make it unbearable for them. And what they enjoy might be enough to put you off.
You can’t really tell until you try.
So jump in.
