5 Hobbies That Seriously Freak Him Out
Everyone needs a hobby. Or two. It’s the best way to maintain independence, whether it’s from parents or your partner. For women, there are so many things from which to choose that it’s almost natural to have many different interests.
But you know what? There are some guys (many, in fact, because we’re so simple in many aspects of life that we tend to think the same) that get freaked out by some of the things women tend to enjoy … or call a hobby.
If you want to build a relationship with this new match, or you’re entering into the dating pool once again, keep in mind that your hobbies (those things you do in your free time, by yourself or with friends) can have an impact on his interest in you.
Yeah, that’s right … some of those hobbies are going to freak out some (okay, many) guys. Whether or not you take that to heart is up to you, but if you find your calls aren’t being returned, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Come on, let’s not lump all reality TV into the same category here, but when you’re watching Real Housewives or anything to do with the Kardashians, and it’s a major event in your life, that’s a major issue. Most guys take any interest in these types of shows as being completely lost, vacant upstairs, because if you have to watch this stuff to be entertained, you’d do just as well to head down to your local shelter and watch the drama unfold.
It’s great to collect things. However, temper your desire to add a hundred or more of one thing into your small one bedroom home. If your date ever makes it over to your place and sees a thousand little Precious Moments figures, he’s probably going to ‘remember’ about a major appointment he has the next morning.
Over-anxiousness about the environment
Believe it or not, many guys actually do care about their environment, but when you start pointing out every single kilowatt that is being wasted because of the light bulbs he chooses to use (along with every other sin he’s committing against Mother Nature), you’re not likely to get another date with him.
When women like to spend their evenings out sampling all of these different restaurants in the area, that becomes a costly date. Keep in mind that there are those who prefer to go ‘Dutch,’ meaning splitting the tab, but when you want a responsible guy in your life, you won’t find it by doing this with him 5, 6, or even 7 days a week.
Riding horses is a great pastime, but unless it’s a part of your career choice, you might want to temper things a bit. Leave the horse tote at home. Don’t bring out the horse magazine when you’re sitting down to dinner. And for the love of all that’s holy, don’t talk about all of the horses you’ve ever had, ridden, or enjoyed spending time with … your entire life.
If you can temper these hobbies when dating, it will dramatically increase your chances of finding some great dates.
