    and what? :dontknow:
    If the other person isn't interested in football, the means **** all . The most interesting people are the ones that have had the most interesting experiences.
    Wow I'm going to have to spell this out for you. The example I mentioned doesn't have to then go into "Then Tommy was offside" because as you said, not everyone would care. But if something happened like "and then Tommy broke his leg" suddenly you have an interesting story which people can talk about. "Oh yeah a mate of mine did that" "I once did that" etc.
    How are you going to have interesting experiences if you have no hobbies, and so do sweet f' all all day? Hobbies generally get you out of the house & interacting with the world.

    Lol I find it funny when girls put on their Facebook "interests" or "hobbies" things such as 'boyz', 'sex', 'drinkinnnnnn' and 'shopppingggg'.

    Though fortunately not all girls are like that.
    Thankyou. At least some guys realise this.

    Wow, what breathtaking generalisations :rolleyes: (directed at Matzy - just realised he isn't the OP)

    Guys may call girls who are only interested in fashion, gossip & celebrities boring, but then girls can call guys who are only interested in beer, cars & football boring too... it works both ways - and just because you don't find something interesting it doesn't mean that everyone thinks so!
    Well said!

    A lot of my interests have already been mentioned, but I never thought to call them hobbies. So I don't see how anyone can be labelled boring, because even if they don't have hobbies, surely they have interests, even if they're not to my taste.

    I agree with the people saying most girls have no real hobbies

    However, most guys have no real hobbies either

    In fact, in my experience more girls have real hobbies than guys do

    By the way things that in my definition are not real hobbies: shopping, socialising, drinking, clubbing, listening to music, going to gigs/festivals/concerts, exercising, having a kick about in the park, watching sports, watching tv, randomly doodling, travelling

    Real hobbies: playing an instrument, singing in a band/choir, acting, playing a sport, reading, learning a language, playing a game such as chess or poker, being active in charitable causes/politics and I could go on but I'm sure you get the idea

    Jump straight in with an attack when you know f**k all about me why not.
    Actually I'm socially normal, go to the gym several times a week, go out with my mates when I can etc. I've met plenty of women/girls and almost all have been exceptionally boring, with the inclusion of my sister. Facebook, gossip pages, gossip and that's it. Oh and shopping and dancing if you really think they count as interests.
    And I'm interested in many things, hence why I can say women are dull. If I was dull myself, surely I would think women would then be interesting if they were dull as well? :cool:
    What then are your hobbies as you must be a rather thrilling individual to make such a criticism?
    Might I be so *****y bold as to suggest you live in a working class bubble?

    All the girls at my state school were as you described, except the few that were good at sports. More guys tended to have sports as a hobby, so I think it's fair to say the guys with hobbies outnumbered the girls. However, when I left for a good sixth form college (still state-run, but it was good so it attracted all kinds of people, lots of ex private and grammar school people were there) pretty much EVERY girl I met had a myriad of hobbies. Real hobbies. The girls with hobbies certainly outnumbered the guys with hobbies. I think it stems from the middle class desire to raise 'accomplished' young women.

    I think that you should really stop and consider whether you've met a real cross-section of humanity before you make sweeping generalisations.

    If those aren't real hobbies, then I must be SUCH a boring person. By your reckoning, a hobby can only be something that is vaguely intellectual. And somehow, excersize isn't a real hobby, but sport is?!

    I like music (listening and performing), dance (watching and performing), spending time with friends, whether thats going to the cinema or just hanging around at lunch times, pixel art and associated web design, and I'm interested in LOADS of things, but just don't actually do them myself regularly enough to count them as a hobby.

    How can people have too few hobbies? I have far too many and don't find time for it all!

    What I spend most my free time on during Uni:
    • reading - both scientific (Scientific American, Nat Geo, popular science books) and non scientific (crime, fantasy, sci-fi)
    • hiking - every Sunday
    • making cards (for Birthdays etc)
    • debating (society)
    • learning French (I watch atleast one movie in French a month and read French books)
    • baking and cooking (I make cakes/muffins/snacks for nights-in and birthdays, I like trying new recipies etc)
    • I blog about the above.


    What I do more during the holidays at home (as well as some of above)
    • painting (oil or acryl paints, occasionally water colour)
    • skiing (season dependent)
    • travelling (two holidays a year atleast - one Europe, one further abroad)


    Things I'd like to do if I had more time:
    • learn another language (Arabic!!)
    • resume playing the piano
    • get into the whole sci-fi thing more
    • learn some more physics/chemistry/history/philosophy



    I don't really shop though. I like having new clothes/jewllery etc but I don't like actually going to buy them. Only shopping I do is for hobbies (books, arts & crafts etc).

    So anyone who doesn't have atleast some activities is plain lazy! There's so much stuff to do!

    Calm down sunshine, don't take me too seriously, though you pretty much attacked anyone with a vagina yourself without knowing anything about them.

    Everyone with more than ten braincells, including me, finds girls who are only into shopping and blokes who only like football really bloody dull.

    Of course my interests won't mean anything to you if they're not things you're into, but as you asked I enjoy modern languages, politics and current affairs, herpetology, world cinema, reading, motoring, gaming, kickboxing, photography and interior decorating. Illustration too, but that's work based so I won't count it as a hobby. I'm trilingual and I work my backside off so I can travel somewhere I haven't been before every year. I might not be your kind of person or whatever but I think you'd be hard pressed to call me boring.

    By the by, I hate gossips and facebook gets on my nerves.

    They're all the things you could properly class as 'hobbies'.

    Not sure how you got that. I'd hardly call singing or playing sports an intellectual persuit

    Yup. Exercise is a lifestyle choice. People do it to be healthy. Would you call getting up in the morning and doing 200 crunch ups a hobby?

    However, playing hockey/basketball/rugby, practising a martial art etc. etc. are things people do for the love of it. That's why they count as hobbies. They do exercise the body yes but most would refer to them as sports/disciplines not exercises.

    (Original post by dymphna)
    I like music (listening and performing), dance (watching and performing)
    In that case, you have hobbies!

    (Original post by dymphna)
    spending time with friends, whether thats going to the cinema or just hanging around at lunch times
    That's not a hobby that's a lifestyle choice shared by 99% of the human population, except for those who have afflictions such as depression.

    (Original post by dymphna)
    pixel art and associated web design
    Sounds like a hobby to me, you know the reason I put 'etc' after my list of hobbies was to indicate there were many other hobbies I couldn't list?

    I never said anything about interests in my post.

    Not intended like that - but yeah, point being someone with hobbies including sport has more chance of being interesting/able to hold conversation.
