do girls have hobbies
>>
only the interesting ones
>>
>>10931059
I think they're more likely than men to feel fully engaged by their social lives, but I know girls who make art and play sports with great intensity.
>>
>>10931059
I read books, sew, play the piano, draw and paint, sometimes knit, play vidya and watch animu if those count.

Everyone has hobbies, most people's just tend to be really boring.
>>
>>10931132
p much all my hobbies except sewing

But what does this have to do with /fa/

Well, if you consider tumblr, Instagram and Polyvore hobbies, then yeah.

Oh, and don't forget "drawing" and "photography".

A shit tier hobby.

I'l give you a pass if you're the kind of drinker who's "passionate" about [insert type of alcohol] to the degree that you own more than 10 books about said spirit and will take a vacation just to go to the region where they make it.
>>
>>10931132
>most people's just tend to be really boring

I think most people just put that much effort into their hobbies to make them stand out. even reading books could make you interesting, when you have a very founded opinion or good knowledge about it.

What the fuck is it with all the girls now suddenly being into video games?

I've been on dates with 4 girls this year, between the ages 19-23, and they're all massive gamers. Ten years ago when I was still playing video games every single girl thought you were a freak when you played Diablo 2, Super Mario and what-have-you.

And I'm starting to understand these girls who thought we were freaks, because goddamn is it a fucking turnoff when you meet someone who is cute and you find out her biggest hobby is LOL or some shit like that.

what hobbies do you guys have?
>>
>>10932175
In 2009, 2010 or thereabouts, video games became a socially acceptable hobby. Games started to become free to play and people who didn't used to play them started to play them, as well as discovering indie games through Steam etc.

You should always make it a point to ask them what games they play so you know whether to just stand up and leave without paying for dinner.
>>
sucking dick and telling jokes should be every girls hobby
>>
>>10932408
Yeah, as soon as I hear any mentioning of like Pokemon, online games like WOW, LOL etc. it's instantly a dealbreaker. I can deal with chicks who just occasionally play games like Mario Party or whatever while still having an actual life, focusing on other things like books, their job etc. But when they start gaming like the D&D neckbeards of old and the losers who let games take over their lives? Disgusting.

I've had the exact same thoughts. Ten years ago people had the easiest reason to call you a 'nerd' for playing vidya.

Though I really like when girls play video games.
It's the simplest guilty pleasure and it inspires so much sympathy in me.
I love when people have those little quirks, it destroys the illusion of staying perfect and cool (that /fa btw is waaay too obsessed with) and just makes them a little more real to me.
>>
>>10931059

holy shit when was the last time you spoke to a girl for more than 5 minutes

I do yoga & pilates and cook. Like work my way through parts of different cookbooks to learn new techniques and cuisines. And slam through old HBO shows and Criminal Minds...

No, apparently the rest are generic losers who dream of being famous 'artists' because they hate themselves and are desperate for the attention, love and validation from other losers.

Seems like any tard who has ever taken a picture with their phone is 'so into photography' nowadays.
>>
>>10932488
No, you look for any big names or big indie games. LoL, WoW, Undertale, Counter Strike GO, Dota etc are all dealbreakers, unless they happen to be good at what they play.
Nintendo is massive bait for 'nerd girls' and you can see this reflected in cosplays and how they 'love pokemon' or LoZ or similar.
Also, any streamers who arent skilled at the games they play.
>>
>>10932395
American girls are the #1 likely people to think 'travelling' is enough of a hobby to make you interesting. Source: Every fucking tinder profile ever.

Personally I think its weird. It doesn't make you more interesting to have witnessed other people or places being interesting. If you actually like to travel, that's fine, but as hobbies go it makes you about as interesting as someone who counts video games as a hobby.

>I can visit one of the many Euro cities because everything is near by

America is literally chockful of beautiful natural environments

We've got more national conservatories and parks than your country probably has surface area

I don't have a passport because I don't need one. I can see the hottest place on earth, hike through a rainforest, climb through lowlands and valleys of old growth forests, visit the tropics and go to the biggest great lake basin on earth, all without leaving the country

But it's ok you crossed more borders :)

yeah this traveling meme is overrated
I did that alot as a kid, (spain,france,london,africa) and my dad spent majority of the trip whining about getting fucked in the ass by pounds/euros compared to dollars. africa was cheap until we all got malaria

sadly this wasn't in the iphone/instagram ever so I can't brag about it.
>>
>>10932545
>I love when people have those little quirks, it destroys the illusion of staying perfect and cool... and just makes them a little more real to me.

Fair enough, though I think a simple skin mole would suffice. I don't expect my future partner to be perfect either, doesn't mean I'll settle for someone who snorts heroin in public restrooms.

>>10932574
I don't play anymore, so I'm not familiar with all these new, popular games. The last game I bought was Final Fantasy XII, because I was a fantasy nerd back way back when.

And I'm honestly thankful that I've never met anyone who actually streams when they play games. That is just seriously pathetic.

>>10932587
Traveling can give you a lot of perspective and insight into how people actually live in cultures radically different from yours, as well as give you a lot of new experiences that you just can't get at home.

I can't ride an elephant here, and diving is too cold (and visibility practically zero). I have never seen a shooting range here nor have I been offered to drink snake blood and vodka over here.

>>10932592
>America is literally chockful of beautiful natural environment

I know. I've been to America. Twice. Three times if you count Hawaii.

If all I wanted was a change in scenery, I guess that'd be fine. But I really want to experience cultures that are very different from my own, and I just didn't get that feeling when crossing states over in America. I still knew and, more imprtantly, felt I was in America.
>>
>>10932607
>yeah this traveling meme is overrated

No wonder you think that with your cheap Charlie-father ruining the trip with his bitchin'. And you shouldn't have fucked those monkeys in Africa - you're lucky you only got malaria and not AIDS.
>>
>>10932587

It's not so much the travelling as it is what you do when you're somewhere new. Plenty of people travel a ways away just to party and do shit they could have done at home, like when Europeans go to Ibiza/Americans go to Puerto Rico. You can assume people who really travel have a bunch of hobbies - museum-going, studying history, hiking, camping, skiing, biking, etc.
>>
>>10932617

what did you sit on a tour bus the whole time? it's pretty culturally diverse state-by-state and suuuper diverse region-by-region.
>>
>>10932631
>it's pretty culturally diverse state-by-state and suuuper diverse region-by-region.

Sorry, but I just don't agree with this. Sure, you know you're not in Florida anymore when you arrive in New York. It's still a far cry from going from, say, Finland to Vietnam. Now that's cultural diversity.
>>
>>10932617
>I don't expect my future partner to be perfect either, doesn't mean I'll settle for someone who snorts heroin in public restrooms.

Haha, okay, i laughed, but let's agree there's a spot between a mole and a drug addiction that's still acceptable.
>>
>>10932617
Don't get me wrong, if I was rich I would travel a lot. It can be fun. Maybe some people expand their perspective with it, but everyone I know who travels a lot have come back just as narrow minded as how they left. The only thing extra they got out of it that they wouldn't have from a documentary is the obnoxious sense of authority from seeing things first hand. If you're open minded you can gain a lot of perspective just by looking at media from around the world and interacting with people online (or even talking to the variety of people within your own community if it's multicultural). I imagine riding an elephant is a fun experience, but it isn't going to change your world view unless your world view was pretty narrow to begin with.

What I don't like is that a lot of Americans look at travel as a substitute for hobbies that require skill or creativity, like it makes them interesting by default. I've seen girls get judgy if you either don't think travel is the end-all or haven't been anywhere in a while.
>>
>>10932658
Yeah, I get what you mean, buddy. I agree.

>>10932669
It is what you make of it, as most things in this world.

With that said, many of the American tourists I've met during my travels were quite boring and I can totally understand if they didn't take away as much from their traveling as others' may have done. For example, the 'safari crowd' who buy all those traditional safari clothes, a big ass camera and then just sit in the car and take a couple pictures for their facebook profile before going back home again.

I remember straying from a tour path with a friend once in Thailand, and we found this beautiful waterfall where you could climb half-way up, actually sit in the middle of the waterfall on a rock and just chill there while having a beer or two (or a joint or two) before riding down the mountain again.

Same goes for the 'charter' (all-inclusive) travelers from my country. Jesus how I try to avoid speaking my native tongue when I see any of them abroad.

I'm currently watching the second season of Zoku Shou and every episode feels like a meditation session, it's a breath of fresh air as always.

Mmm, I see your point but that's gonna be a tough sell here. Autists are all about their hobbies. VG, Shows, model gundams whatever nerds are know for having lots of hobbies.

Honestly I'm usually the one getting too worked up over these "hurr durr women are scary" threads but this is the single one has a bit of truth to it.

Out of all my female friends (Faggot here so most of my friends), only two actually persue something passionately. The rest are kinda musicians but never seem to write any music, or kind of artists but never making anything than just fucking around with paint when high.

Maybe it's just a cultural thing here in the US, but quite seriously I'm pressed to think of any girls that have "their thing" in the same way nearly all of my guy friends do.

Not even a diss, just observations.

yeah unfortunately a lot of the people at wine tastings are idiots who are just there for the alcohol. if you can find a good group though, its really excellent. wine is such an interesting and multi-faceted piece of world history to explore. usually at wine tastings you spit the wine out, so you shouldn't be getting drunk in the first place, you don't taste as well when drunk.

To be honest its never worth trying to get another person into your hobbies. They either like it already/discover it on their own, or they will never be into it like you are and will never really get it.

>>10931059
I've always considered hobbies personal, never really involved other people (or the bf) with them. Mine mostly involve solitary actions though, which I prefer doing alone, like making origami, playing music, travelling, watching copious amounts of pornography, drawing and reading.

I have a little too many hobbies actually. I like to weld (small daggers and some metal structures like tables ect), do simple carpentry, sculpt with clay, paint portraits, play some games like fallout, elder scrolls, mass effect, ect. and I like cooking, especially making pastries and breads. I recently took up weight lifting but I'm still too new to really call it a hobby I guess.

From personal experience I'd rather somebody have passion and love for anything even if it's bird watching than some male/female just name dropping "hobbies" they like and have a wikipedia summary of understanding.
it's way cooler to be around people who are always trying to excel and trying know exactly what they're doing.Progression is beautiful

what is the difference between getting into a hobby through your boyfriends and finding a new hobby yourself because you think it's cool and see other people do it.

the only way to discover a hobby is seeing someone else do it first.
i can understand the frustration with the lack of passion for it if they tend to just dabble into it and drop it

most people are amateurs when it comes to shit they like anyways

This post is so good it should be fucking framed.

In my experience, there are always people - male and female - who are utterly boring and listless, especially once they get into their 20s and out of college. It's actually one of my big pet peeves when dating girls here in D.C.: "going out"/"brunching" every weekend isn't a hobby.

(Admittedly, there are reasons they wouldn't like my idea of a weekend either)

>Collecting records
>Shitposting
>Drawing well on MSpaint

>Scrapbooking
>Decorating, furniture building, fixing things, fixing audio shit, fixing bikes, fixing cars

When I spread out all of my time amongst these interests equally it equates to essentially not having any hobbies at all.
A hobby is essentially spending a majority of your time doing the one sole thing that makes your autism tick.

I tried really fucking hard to find a serious hobby through which I could socialize with women.

A real hobby. That is, an enjoyable activity with milestones however insignificant where you can throw yourself into ater work or on sundays mornings.
Like travel totally does not count. I love travelling but it's not a timewaster so to speak. One does not travel to toronto or to rome after work and before diner.

I must insist the activity should have some sort of social nexus. Like a regular meeting where you drop in and get to casually meet people and stuff. I tried SO MANY THINGS.

Flying lessons. Cool as shit. Total sausage fest.
Chess club. Awesome. Dong Magnet.
Knitting. Couldn't find a club. Ended making friends with a 76 yo grandma who runs a sewing/alterations type of store. Knitting people do it in their homes but don't gather really.
Motorcycle racing. Sausage as expected.
Foreign languages meetups at hipster bookstore. 50yo demographics, surprisingly full of dudes.
Book club at same bookstore. 60yo retired classics professors. ALL OF THEM.
Cooking classes. Full of already formed couples in their first 4 months of relationship. Was the only single dude. Weird.
Local conservatory. Actually full of women they don't offer classes to adults, kids only.
Local entrepreneur meetup luncheon. Weinerfestival.
Quiz night at the pub, a real hotdog stand.


Actually, the only thing where I genuinely got to meet girls as expected was at the Salsa dancing joint. I'm not

I just think that women in their 20s are so fucking high in the dating pole they don't bother to make a conscious effort at socializing, offers just rain upon them or something. All my girl friends with a regular "club" activity just started that activity in their teens and never changed.

All the women who have hobbies stay away from hobbies that offer an opportunity to randomly meet new people frequently.
>>
Easy as fuck yall
It's all about what Freud called "sublimation"
The objective of every living animal is to get laid so new individuals can be born and perpetuate the specie.
If an individual's "energy" accumulates because of an impossibility of getting laid, it flows and is released in other types of actions: hunt, sport, fights... or creation of art, rituals or whatever.
As an heritage from back in the days, men play the active role on trying to get laid: while a woman can only be pregnant once each 9 months, a man can fuck as many females as he wants and bring legions of new individuals. If a male doesnt't release that energy trough any sexual activity, he will do through other types of shit while women just have to wait until the genetically best male avaliable gets her pregnant and brings a healthy baby into the community.

I have had similar issues.

Dancing is always a very good strategy, though obviously a lot of girls in the dance scene are both taken and used to guys showing up to meet girls. You should expect that you won't be taken seriously until you show a genuine interest, not just a "I'm here, fuck me!" sort of attitude.

Social clubs also work, though the girls can be douchey. I've made friends through them, but never girlfriends (though some autist tried to make me give a really weird girl my number... haha no)

To be honest, I have similar feelings on the topic. Here in D.C., girls in their 20s don't seem to put a lot of effort into meeting people outside of the occasional dating app. Kinda sucks.

I've found that school is the absolute best place to meet new people, both friends and girls. Just sign up for a class in architecture, business administration or whatever and you'll be swimming in pussy. I'm just bummed out I didn't make the most out of my university days because of depression, but I'm thinking about taking up some classes again just to meet people.

It's such a natural environment to socialize and if you ever fall short on things to say - like if you're an autist like me - you can always talk about whatever it is you both study. Simple as hell!

Okay, but if we don't immediately think of socialising as synonymous with "swimming in pussy" for a second, then it's still strange to me that so few girls from 18-28 actively seek socialising with new people.

This is making ma brains think
>>
>>10937255
One thing to consider is that most guys don't either.

Many of my male friends are extremely uncomfortable with stepping outside their comfort zone, which means that they'd never go do a new hobby do meet new people. Most of them are content hanging around with the same old people and bitching about the lack of girls. They might go out to a club once and a while to pick up girls, but the situation is so biased against them that it's no surprise it doesn't work.

I'm sure it's a similar dynamic with girls.

But more than half the time these gays or girls never get to pick up the super hot piece at the club, and furthermore clubbing isn't really a social event... it's more like.... the opposite.

ik, just taking the piss

but it seems like people still have this urge to be supersocial, I mean no one likes clubbing, everyone looks angry or indifferent or are on drugs and don't count.
But they don't do anything else to actively socialise.

There's this general consensus that you >have< to be a social, extrovert person when really a huge amount of people are a lot more comfortable being more introvert.
We all aspire to be the one with a snappy remark or who's good at public speaking or whatever but it's seems to make a lot of people straight up unhappy to be measured against this Jordan Belfort type.

And then they go clubbing and fucking hate it when really they should just do origami

the thing is nobody knows how to play the guitar. people "know" how to play 5 chords and convince girls they know what they're doing.

also, the ubiquity of the guitar is great. there's an endless amount of music for it and resources about it. it can be acoustic or electric, changed with a ton of pedals, used for jazz, classical, etc. it's like the piano but with a ton more tonal capacity. it's perfect

Cute dog though

You should quit it with the binge watching, though. Reading is better, provided it's actually something good. Watching a skilfully/passionately-made and emotionally complex show is also good, but the way you talk about this pastime makes it seem like you do it as an escape, with anything you can get your hands on. You're going to die a cold husk with only your intimate knowledge of F.R.I.E.N.D.S to stimulate you, and in those final moments, you will realize that those situations were only broadly analogous to your life, and the experiences you would've had by not sitting on the bed absorbing the same sets of situations as hundreds of millions of others before you, would have been infinitely more fulfilling and bright and joyous and tragic and confusing and grand. And then you'll die.

Also, actually take up skill-intensive drawing (start at realism to learn technique and then branch into whatever you want, be it tattoo design, surrealism, architecture/anatomy studies, photorealism, or even just varied texture replications), or painting, or sculpting, or pottery. Basically take up an actually engaging art form instead of doodling. If you're actually spending time on it, these will be infinitely better reflections of your soul, and will teach you things about yourself you didn't know, and ways to better that stranger you find. Photography is okay, as long as you're developing your own prints. The long, step-by-step process of creation, elimination, revision, and introduction of the new is necessary, and digital just doesn't offer that like film.

Competition is always good as long as it is to better yourself.

Good on the nature exploring, be safe.

Then again I've noticed I've raised my standards over the years. I just can't date women who work in menial jobs like fast food joints or whatever. Unless they're studying for something better or already have it - it's a no-go.

>>10938083
It'd be kinda funny if things were to turn around and guys all over would start treating women like shit when finding out they game.

I've always just thought of hobby groups as pretty sad places since they're mostly populated by people who can't just go out into life and make connections. You wanna meet women? go to parties and gigs, youthful energetic things.
>>
To be honest, people under maybe 30 with dedicated hobbies are kinda weird - guys and girls alike. I know you don't have to be obsessed with the topic to consider it a hobby, but between school and work most of the people who are into their hobbies enough to go to a dedicated club tend to be.

Frankly, the 'cool' people you are seeking don't need conventional hobbies because they already have an active social life.

I'm a girl and have played video games since I was 5 or 6 and still do when I have time, so the concept of playing video games isn't anything special to me. I can agree on the LOL part though. Every girl I know of who plays LOL or says she does gives me a weird vibe. They all cosplay that Jinx (sp?) character.

>Frankly, the 'cool' people you are seeking don't need conventional hobbies because they already have an active social life.
the coolest people I have met are usually the ones with hobbies they are passionate about
on the other hand the people who aren't really passionate about anything but have active social lives are the least interesting people usually
I guess if your reasoning for getting a hobby is to get social life you are probably pretty boring
>>
>>10939233
I mostly brought up online games like LoL because they are extreme time-wasters; they're not games you play for 30 minutes and then go outside and do other shit, but rather, games that you spend all day playing and really put a lot of time and energy into.

Right now its the biggest indicator that media has a strong influence on them and that they jump from trend to trend and alter their life style based on what is currently trending.

You don't want to live your life with anyone that shallow, so if she is a gamer/cosplayer/ part time worker without a college degree just use her for sex while single and never seek anything meaningful it's just not there

>implying that any/every girl who gets into a male-dominated hobby is like this

The difference is that girls into these kinds of "nerdy" hobbies are usually considered by guys (and especially the kinds of /fa/ggots who post here) to be:
>ugly (because they care more about gaming than their looks)
>shallow (if they're remotely attractive)
The problem is that the only girls that guys notice are the shallow, attention-seeking ones who use their looks to get by since they're the attractive ones who, again, have nothing but their good looks and sexual appeal to their name. Which is why they have the need to whore themselves out and grab attention.

The other thing worth mentioning is that this topic is on the fucking FASHION BOARD, so I'd expect that at least some girls who post in this thread are concerned more with their looks than their hobbies. Otherwise, they'd be posting on /tg/ or /v/ or /co/ or /lit/ or what have you.

If you really want to find girls who are really into a certain hobby, you'd be better off posting about this topic in an appropriate board.
>>
I do things to entertain myself of course; watch movies, make art, make and listen to music, write, act and direct little films with my friends, do long distance running, try a few new craft beers with a friend of mine weekly, and a lot of other shit.

But the way I view it, if you really feel you need some special list of hobbies that are somehow cooler than everyone else's to make yourself interesting; that's just a sad attempt at making up for a lack of personality. I don't let my hobbies define me whatsoever. My personality is what sets me aside from everyone else I've ever met, and it's what every single one of them knows me for.
That same logic goes for girls. I don't need to see a list of her interests to decide if I like her or not, I'll just know. And that opinion will continue to develop or change as I get to know her. I can't believe that there's really people out there that try so hard to let everyone know that they and everyone they associate with are "patricians."

I have, don't worry. That's not what I was saying.
Again, people who make their looks their hobby have precious little time for much else. Some people are just more effective at it than others.

And that doesn't change the fact that we are on a board where many of the people here consider their looks to be their biggest hobby.

see that's the problem. If you have no time for socializing, there is no opportunity to meet new people. You might consider to pick up some new friends in school, which could lead you to new cliques and new people, which would mean to leave your comfort zone, but it'll be worth it. Being shy is not a stigma.

Between being at uni, working and doing an internship then doing work for uni when I get in, then cleaning the flat and doing the cooking because my bf doesn't do either I'm exhausted so I just watch shit then sleep and use my weekends for more uni work and more sleep.
The closest I get is going to a tea shop at the weekend to catch up on work somewhere other than my flat or the library.

You missed the point sampei.
'Travelling' for most people isn't a hobby. It's fucking nothing. They go somewhere warm and sunbathe. If they're slightly better they go see something pretty and take a selfie. It takes no effort at all and they're no richer for it.
Ask them about the places they've been and they have nothing to fucking say about the place unless something wacky happened like a monkey stealing your bag.
What's the fucking point if you're no better for wasting all that money and your only insight is "Everywhere's just so different".

ITT people who don't know the difference between HOBBIES and INTERESTS

HOBBIES
-Create things from nothing (new material goods, new ideas, new insights)
-Recycle and modify existing things
-Involve constant pushing, exploring, furthering the hobby as a whole
-Peer respect and approval from masters (individuals adept at the hobbie) a significant driving force.


INTERESTS
-Mere circlejerk discussion without creating/modifying things (goods/ideas/etc) yourself
-Mainly concerned with consuming or owning
-99% of time spend simply talking or commentating about the thing, not actively furthering it
-Peer agreement is a significant driving force. Who and how many people agree with your opinion of it.


People who have HOBBIES
-Working fine artists
-People who build stuff (goods, cars, buildings)
-Musicians who actually get some for of money for their performance, especially those who do so writing their own stuff
-Working authors and Legitimate Journalists (NOT mommy bloggers/tumblr-hags)
-Anyone in STEM

People who have INTERESTS
-Those with "normie" day jobs (service/hospitality, 90% of office type work) who pursue experiences and collecting goods when not being a wageslave
-99% of Tumblr/instagram/twitter/vine/youtube people, who mainly comment on/regurgitate/discuss/collect already existing things and ideas
-Critics of any kind, most historians, archivists, benefactors, philanthropists (bless their hearts)


Let's say photography is your hobbie, your passion. You take some photos, can work your used Canon Rebel well enough, and even get some likes on social media. Good for you, but let's be frank. It's not really original, is derivative, and only a handful of normies like it. It doesn't attract professional attention, and that's fine, you've got a day job and the tumblr attention you get from 25 bloggers satisfies you. Actually pushing the medium would strain your day to day too much and your boss is already a giant dick.

2/2

There's a subtle but important difference between a hobbie and an interest.

Overwhelmingly most people who say they have hobbies actually have interests. They're mainly consumers. And that's perfectly fine. Greatness wouldn't be greatness if it was common. And overwhelmingly most people are perfectly content being "just good enough" where their circles legitimately like their stuff and that's as far as it gets. Because slaving away at technique, going bald from stress over progressing the art, and sacrificing everything to not only create something but create something great and new is soul crushingly painful to the general populous.

Personally I'm not saying that your INTERESTS don't have any merit. In fact I feel it's a sign that you're a balanced individual. You understand responsibilities well enough and realize how to live with societal checks and balances.

But if you want to transform your interest into a HOBBIE or JOB or CAREER, meaning if you want your interest to actually be worth a damn, CREATE.

Stop collecting inspiration till your hard drive is full. Stop circlejerking till your keyboard fails. Stop being concerned retweets, likes, reblogs.

CREATE. Struggle, be uncomfortable. And do so with the explicit intention to better skill, to further the medium, to expand the art.

If you try to do that you'll be better off and immeasurably more interesting, respectable, and attractive, than 99.9% of everyone out there.

in order to fit into society you need to at least feign interest into an "interest" that the general populace deems acceptable.
