What do guys think about women with 'feminine' hobbies and passions? Watch

    I'm not talking about shopping and applying make up (although I do these to an extent, though I would not consider them hobbies).

    I like to do things like sewing, knitting, baking and cake decorating. I really like cleaning and home decor. I like animals and I've spent a lot of time looking after children in my family, I'm just generally very nurturing. I go to yoga classes regularly but also go to the gym. I don't drink or party (which I get a lot of stick for at uni) I'd rather stay at home with a film, book or my next craft project.

    I can't think that maybe I'm a bit too boring or to much of a softie for a guy. These days it seems like some of these kind of things are a bit outdated for the modern woman, but I love them and they make me feel at peace.

    What do you think?

    Disclaimer: Please don't be offended for me calling these things 'feminine', of course anyone can do these things and it's not a bad or shame thing for something to be more typically considered feminine. Thanks

    I like it. As long as you're ok with trying new things before you decide you don't like it.

    I don't particularly like going out too regularly either, being around people too much drains me so I'd prefer someone like this.

    I think it's really nice and I for one would prefer to be with someone like this.
    (Please everyone don't hate me for that, it's just a preference and I'm not saying anything like 'all women should be like this')

    Oh yes I'm definitely up for trying new things and going new places. As long as it doesn't involve heights they terrify me Although most roller coasters are okay if I get to hold someone's hand lol

    Adorable, although if you do the former too much you're at risk of being stereotyped a 'cat lady' (or grandma) :mmm:

    I really like cleaning
    Lemmie get dem digitz :cool:

    Perhaps for a 'popular guy', but for the vast majority of males I'm sure the personal qualities described wouldn't ruin your chances

    This is exactly what I'd prefer tbh Most introverted girls I've known are more lazy then anything else. I like going out and doing things, just not necessarily with lots of other people.

    Sounds good to me , better that then your interests simply being drinking alcohol. You should be happy about what you are interested in and don't change for a guy so much. Sure partners need to learn to think of each other and sometimes compromise but you have no reason to feel bad about your hobbies.

    Oh I know, I think because I'm at uni and I don't drink/party I always feel like there is something wrong with me.

    Yeah I do feel like a bit of a grandma sometimes... You see none of those things are exactly sexy or adventurous.

    As for the popular guy thing... I know a lot of guys at uni who would never dream of dating a girl who doesn't drink

    Would you have a problem with your boyfriend drinking though? I feel a lot of people assume that if their partner doesn't drink, they wont be allowed to either which explains the reluctance.

    No I wouldn't mind him drinking. However I don't see myself being compatible with someone who is in the pub or club every night. Someone who enjoys a drink a few times a week, why not...
