One of the best ways to cultivate interest in yourself from women is to make yourself interesting and the power of hobbies can do just that.
Not only do you increase the likelihood that you’ll have things in common, but women admire men that have a wide range of skills, and even more-so that he’s mastered.
That’s how she’ll introduce you to friends, and hopefully the family one day. It’s also a great meet to meet guys and build your circle!
Below are a list of activities that you should look at and try to add to your repertoire. If your stuck in quarantine like me, make it your mission to start one of these while your forced to be at home!
- Lifting – This is the holy grail of activities/hobbies that raise your value to women. #
- It is the backbone of becoming a true alpha male and every single person reading this should be lifting. I am basically against Starting Strength and would not advise it for those who are looking to lift.
- There are plenty of resources on the internet to get you started, the thing is just START.
- Running – I personally don’t run, but its probably the easiest thing to start doing. Grab a pair of shoes and just go! It’s a great date idea as well!
- Walking – If running isn’t your thing, but you’d like to get some light cardio in, you can find a walking program onExRx.
- It’s suggested that you take the Rockport Walk Test to establish which program you start at (ExRx also provides this calculator,
- but you must have the test self-administered or administered to you by someone else in order to fill in the values.) Read up on how to do it if you’re interested.
- Yoga – You can choose to take up yoga as a way to manage stress and keep a cool head on a day-to-day basis. For a start, you can buy a cheap mat on Amazon and do some videos on YouTube.
- Hiking – I personally have not hiked much, but I have gone on a long hike before while travelling anywhere I am. It is always quite the experience and the view was gorgeous.
- You can look around your area for hiking trails or mountains and get started that way. It’s pretty interesting.
- Swimming – I used to swim as a youngster, but never really picked it up myself as a hobby, though I do love being in the water and going for a swim. If your gym has a pool, it wouldn’t hurt to go for a post-workout swim to wind down.
- Biking – Never learned how to ride a bike, but eventually found out how to when I was a teenager (not sure how.) Riding a bike is actually really fun and can be your alternative mode of transportation if you want to do your part in saving the environment and limiting emissions from your car.
- Rock Climbing – I have a massive and debilitating fear of heights, so this is a no-go for me, but it looks really fun to do if you’re not a bitch like I am and can handle heights.
- There are a lot of rock climbing gyms that are popping up in my area that people have been using as a way to hang out and connect.
- Play Sports – There are literally countless sports you can play. I have experience playing baseball, basketball, soccer, and volleyball, and enjoyed all of them except for baseball.
- I have played a bit of badminton in college for certain labs, but didn’t enjoy it much. Some sports you can play are:
Cultivate a Skill
Learn a language – I’m already going to insert Duolingo as my preferred way of learning a language.
This app has a lot of popular languages that you can learn, and I have previously used it to improve my Spanish and do a bit of French and Chinese.
You can also go to the subreddit, LanguageLearning, to get a good start. Some languages you can learn:
Learn to code – Codecademy is a site I have used when I wanted to try out coding. Knowing how to code is absolutely valuable, as you can start your own little business coding things for people.
Few people know how to code, so learning this skill can be very beneficial.
Learn music/Practice an instrument – Piano and guitar are 2 instruments that come to mind, as I’ve dabbled in both to no avail. Never really enjoyed these instruments, but I digress. You can head over to the Reddit.com to check out sub-reddits on music or the instruments below and decide what you want to learn, whether it would be composing pieces, producing electronic music, or finding an instrument to play. Instruments you can play:
Any sort of percussion instrument
Creating Art – There are so many types of art you can choose to make. I never was an artistic person growing up (I suck at drawing). That said, you may have dabbled in art while growing up and may want to get back into it if that’s your thing. Types of art you can do:
Photography – Photography is a cool skill you can pick up, as you can become a photographer and charge people just to literally take good-looking pictures.
Taking pictures of nature and preserving them for your memory is also a very nice thing to do, and I wish I could afford a camera to begin getting into photography myself! You can pick up a cheap one of Craigslist.com or Ebay to get started!
Carpentry – Building things with wood is actually quite fun to do.
I was tasked with building a chariot for my fraternity and, while the chariot turned out to be a disaster, it was fun to get the wood, have it cut, and put it all together in an effort to make what we thought was a great chariot (it wasn’t, it fell apart almost instantly.)
You can get creative with what you choose to make, and then you can also paint the pieces of wood in order to make something truly awesome.
Singing – Singing is good for bonding with friends and family alike. Having a good voice is always good, and when combined with a certain instrument, can result in your pullin’ bitches with the sound of your voice and your guitar.
You can take beginner singing classes to get a start, or, just start banging it out in the shower by yourself!
Cooking – I think cooking is an awesome hobby to pick up.
You can combine cooking with your Fitness hobbies to really achieve the Hercules look and pull allllll the bitches.
You can also learn on your own by trying to cook a really good recipe you found online, though you most certainly may screw something up if it’s your first time. Nevertheless, still fun to do.
Reading – I absolutely love to read. It’s one of my main activities and provides an unlimited amount of value to your life.
You can choose to read through this site , a self-help book, or any book that you enjoy reading. It not only provides knowledge, but also peace of mind, and lets you tune out from the world and tune into the content.
To find a book you may be interested in reading, you can ask your friends, look through Amazon books under categories you’re interested in, and see what interests you.
I also look at the Barnes & Noble website under relevant categories to see what I want to go and pick up and decide on a list of books that I want to start reading. I have a list of books currently that I concocted just from looking at B&N’s site.
Meditation – A lot of people like to meditate today. While it isn’t something I personally do, though I have found it to be enjoyable, it is something you can choose to do to wind down at night or begin your day. Meditation does have its benefits.
Some of these activities or hobbies can only raise your value if you’re successful at them. Nevertheless, they’re still beneficial as something that can be used to fill up your free-time so you’re doing SOMETHING productive.
I personally do not enjoy having a bunch of free time as I end up on my phone a lot, gaming, or watching Netflix, and those aren’t things I would like to do for hours on end.
Occasionally using your phone, gaming, and watching Netflix isn’t bad, but binging is never good, and everything is fine in moderation.
Moderate yourselves, and enjoy the things in life, as life is too short to not enjoy and spend your time thinking about some bitch.
I really hope this post helps people with deciding what to do in their free time.
I never really thought about the power of hobbies and how they could influence my dating game, but writing this piece already benefits me, as I now have a list that I can refer back to when I feel like doing something new.
