Hobbies are a really important thing to have for a number of reasons. You’ve probably met a lot of your friends through your hobbies. Here’s a weird misconception though, maybe not one you hold but one that is definitely out there.

Women don’t have hobbies. And if they do, they’re probably cooking and cleaning. If you are trying to date, and trying to form any meaningful relationship with a woman, then you need to get rid of this idea.

You need to take an interest in what their actual hobbies are, because not only then will you be able to have more interesting conversations with them, but hobbies can tell you a lot about what a person is actually like.

You can get a gauge on their personality and the type of things they like and are interested in. Let’s have a look at some of the most common hobbies women enjoy:

1. Dancing

What you’ll probably come to realize as this list progresses is that a lot of these hobbies are actually things that can be enjoyed by both men and women, but some of them are sort of perceived to be more feminine.

Dancing is one of those. Men can dance, can be great dancers and are aware of how beneficial dancing is for you, but women are generally more open to it. There’s a lot of different types: Ballet, tango, ballroom and swing to name a few.

Those who are willing to get up in front of others and dance tend to be quite confident and although many dance for their own benefit, it does come from a desire to perform. It is a type of artistic expression, you can expect a woman who dances to have an artist’s mind.

2. Gardening

Gardening is a common hobby and also one that is often practiced by women well into their old age. It’s exercise for sure but it’s not something that your age or your level of fitness is a factor in whether or not you can do it well.

Some people do it because they enjoy doing things which they can watch the results of develop over time, some people like the idea of having a flower garden to show off that they created basically from scratch and then of course there are those who grow their own food.

Gardening is a game for the patient. Things that you set in motion might not reach their full potential for months and the plants have to be taken care of after that. So patience and persistence are virtues you can expect from a woman who gardens.

3. Horse-Riding

Horses are magnificent creatures. For thousands of years humans and horses have had both a working relationship and a recreational one. Of course they are a part of certain sports such as show-jumping and polo, but they’re also just great companions.

Many women will see the value in them as pets and as a source of calming enjoyment. You don’t have to do anything strenuous, you just jump up on horseback, with an animal that trusts you of course and go for a little ride.

It’s a great hobby because it’s exhilarating, it gets you out in the sun and you build up a connection with an animal. Girls who like horse-riding are definitely animal lovers, and they love being out in nature for sure.

4. Singing

We all enjoy singing on some level. Like we tend to like to sing along to songs but most of us just do it when we’re by ourselves or at a concert where no one can hear us anyway. When it becomes a bit more like an actual hobby is when you try to utilize your voice’s potential.

Like anything else, learning how to sing is a hobby that takes a lot of practice to perfect, but it’s extremely worth it and the great thing about singing is that the only equipment that you need for it is your own voice. And anyone can learn how to sing.

Like dancing, women who sing are the artistic type. They’re musical and want to express themselves through song.

5. Writing

Writing doesn’t necessarily mean writing creatively, another popular writing hobby is journaling. It’s a hobby that allows you to express your thoughts as they pertain to your day-to-day life and see how you progress as a person over time.

And then of course there are those who also like to write fiction. More of a commitment and a generally slow process, but it’s definitely a hobby that many women like to explore and it encompasses poetry, short stories and songs.

Those who like to write are comfortable being alone with their thoughts, they’re creative and are introspective and thoughtful. The type of people that you can always expect to be able to have deep, interesting conversations with.

6. Art

I suppose my use of the word ‘art’ is a little bit vague. Especially since art does encompass some of the things I’ve covered already such as writing, singing and even dancing. But specifically, I’m referring to things like painting and crafts.

Women who like to paint have a great appreciation for the visual world and a drive to explore the potential of colours and imagery. Artistic expression comes in many forms as we’ve talked about, so much like the others women interested in arts and crafts are also creatives.

7. Working Out

Yes, this is a hobby and it is a hobby that women are equally as interested in as men are. It’s also not purely about ego, appearance and a desire to compete with other people that you see in the gym.

If you’re working out you should be working out for you. Women can do pretty much all of the same exercises that men can do, regardless of the fact that they aren’t as strong. This doesn’t stop them from being able to squat, bench press, deadlift or anything like that.

Going to the gym a couple of times a week serves you as a hobby because it gives you something fun to focus on, you can meet people and it’s great for your body. Anyone who works out is a person who is driven, hard-working and takes their health seriously.

8. Reading

It’s hard to find time to read. It’s not so bad when you’re a kid but once you start working even a short book feels a bit like a monumental task. When are you going to fit that into your hectic schedule?

It’s so important though, and there’s a world of different kinds of books out there. You don’t really have to have a specific type of personality to be interested in reading because there’s almost definitely genres out there which suit you.

So women of all backgrounds and all ages (men too, the popularity of reading isn’t gender-specific) can grow a love for reading. Readers are imaginative and keen to learn about the world and explore philosophical ideas. Notoriously great conversationalists.

9. Running

You should know about this one because women have been running away from you for your entire life and you’re here because you want that to stop isn’t that right? Sorry that was mean, but I realized this article was lacking in marginally clever wordplay so it had to happen.

You know what else has to happen? Cardio. And the best way to work on your cardio is as simple as running. It’s an exercise that humans have done for years and years and it’s never lost its effectiveness.

Whether it’s in the park, around your neighbourhood or on a treadmill, it doesn’t matter, running is beneficial and it’s a good opportunity to think and be present. Much like working out, a woman who has running as a hobby is healthy, energetic and eager to better herself.

10. Playing an Instrument

10 most common women hobbies and what they say about them playing instrument

Among musically-inclined women, the most popular instrument would probably be the guitar. No instrument is easy to learn, but the thing about the guitar is that it’s so popular that it’s not hard to find good resources to learn.

It can also be pretty easily adapted to any kind of music and you can do so many different things with it. Many women also enjoy playing the piano, the violin, the harp but every instrument has some female representation.

It’s not like women can’t play the drums or the saxophone, you just see less of it for some reason. A woman who is proficient at playing an instrument is a diligent creative type, and is definitely passionate about music.

So these are ten of the most popular ones, but there are hundreds of hobbies out there and you can no doubt find women are interested in all of them. It would be nice to share a hobby with the woman you’re dating, but even if you don’t, take an interest in her interests.

It will make for a much stronger relationship, a much more fulfilled relationship from a conversation perspective and it will help her to feel like you really care about her and want to get to know her better.

Hi, I'm Marc Summers

marc summers of major league dating

I used to suck big time with women, dating, and relationships even though I was nicer than other guys, tried my hardest, and followed all of the dating advice. The women I landed, unsurprisingly, weren’t very picky or hard to get and I regularly got cheated on and dumped. Despite being the nice, generous, thoughtful, and loving guy I thought women wanted, once they got to know me, the attraction disappeared.

The day my girlfriend left me for her ex 30 minutes after hearing he got out jail was the day I decided to get serious, figure out EXACTLY what I was doing wrong, and make some changes.

The next 5 years of my life were spent focusing only on studying psychology, human behavior, effective communication, and leadership, and meeting and dating one woman after another to test out and fine tune what I was learning.

You know what became obvious very quickly?

Your dating and relationship problems have nothing to do with the women and have everything to do with your mindset, behavior, habits, and decisions.

Once you figure out what’s wrong and fix the problems in each one of these areas, your dating life will become easier, less stressful, and more rewarding. 

To share the powerful information I learned and make you better with women, dating, and relationships, I’ve written multiple best-selling books and have helped over 1-million men get better results. No matter how screwed up and hopeless your situation seems right now, I can help you improve it.

Marc, For what it’s worth, I’m a customer and a big fan. Your common sense, non-hype advice is on the mark every time. It gives much needed perspective. Thank you.


Finished it in one session. This book is mandatory read for us men to live up to our greatest potential.


Your stuff is the best I have heard so far! It gives me hope because I know I CAN become better with women. I am attractive, physically fit, but was having all the bad luck with women because I was just thinking and doing things wrong. It all makes better sense now. Thanks!


I was skeptical at first, but to my surprise, this turned out to be GREAT. Marc explains in a great and precise way what is needed to become better with women you like and want to date. The thing is that becoming better at dating and women isn’t something you do for them, but for yourself. It’s a way of looking at the world and behaving in a way that will make YOU the happiest (and I can speak from experience). Women are very attracted to that and it’s an added bonus. Everything Marc teaches is clear, precise, and to the point. Highly recommended to any man, especially young men, for acquiring the right mindset. For the price, it’s a steal.


Life Changing. The principles here go beyond porn and masturbation. Principles such as get more sleep, the reptilian brain, journaling, etc. Such an amazing list. I highly recommend this to anyone.


I just wanted to tell you thanks for your products. You’ve really helped me start to understand the issues my lack of emotional control has created with women, and in my life as a whole. I just finished 72 Ways and previously read 99 Bad Boy Traits. I’m coming off of a messy divorce a couple months ago, and also a break up with a different woman who I truly want to be with. Because of my lack of emotional control surrounding my divorce, I pushed her away. Thanks to the help of your books, I see the mistakes I made in my marriage and with the woman I want to be with. Right now I’m focused on myself, and your books really help me to stay on that path, rather than repeating the needy, overly emotional, negative patterns I was in. I’m giving her space with the acceptance that she might not come back around. If you have any further advice for me I’d appreciate it, and thanks so much again!


Hey Marc. Your book is the only one I’ve ever found that specifically talks about the whole Real Man/Bad Boy phenomenon in detail (Actually being it as opposed to knowing how to “Perform” it). There is so much crap online about what it is to be a man and what not that finding your book was really refreshing. You’ve done a great job with it. Thanks for writing this book, I couldn’t put it down! I’ll keep an eye out for any more of your works.


Hi, Marc. I enjoyed the book very much. I learned quite a bit, it put into perspective the things that I was doing wrong and gave good ideas on how to avoid those same mistakes in the future. I now know to not think of girls the same way or to make them my goal for success, my problem was that I was always over-thinking every situation, and I would let myself get too attached. After reading your book, I know understand that just because a woman likes you that doesn’t mean they’re attracted to you. I think that knowing that women respond to emotions is going to be a big help for me.


I have been enjoying your videos and your blog posts. I have to say that you are truly different from any other PUA shit I have ever come across. I feel like that PUA stuff ruins your true Authentic self. Thanks.


I’ve read a lot of pickup stuff online and you’re one of the only coaches who gives real applicable advice. Thanks for the help


Hey Marc, I want to thank you! You give a ton of great information, and techniques. My girlfriend has some stuff going on in her life that has forced us to put our relationship on hold. It would’ve been very easy for me to freak out and be a pussy about it, and call and text and piss and moan…but instead, I said…ok. I get it now! Thanks!


Dude, you rock. I appreciate your perspective, the information, tips, the advice... It's all been a helpful tool for me.


I would like to tell you that they have absolutely changed my life. The girl whom I liked but she didn’t like me has started to talk to me. I mean you were an angel to me, I now have personal priorities and goals sorted out. God must have sent you to me. I don’t know how can I thank you for being such a helpful person a mentor and a counselor.


I just finished read your 2 books (how to quit being a loser & 99 bad boy traits) I just wanna thank you so much, my life has changed from the day I started read your free articles on your website, and it really changed me so much more after I purchased the eBooks. I can really felt and sense how women respect me more and felt their attractions towards me after I changed my mindsets and actions. Your taught its universal regardless of our culture and tradition. Thank you so much.


Hello, Marc! First of all, I REALLY WANT TO THANK YOU AND TO THANK YOU A LOT, FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART, because you HELPED ME VERY, VERY MUCH with your ebook 98 Ways to Stop Masturbating and workbooks about stopping masturbation. You REALLY CHANGED MY LIFE. I wanted to stop masturbating since a long time ago but NOW i found in your books, in your articles the reasons, the motivation, the willpower, the ambition necessary to do it. NOW I REALLY WANT TO STOP MASTURBATING ONCE AND FOR ALL, I REALLY WANT TO GET RID OF THIS HABIT ONCE AND FOR ALL.


Thanks for making and sharing such great videos!


I like what you teach because it is direct and it works. I feel like your advice was created just for me.


I read your books everyday Marc and it really helps me out a whole lot with women. Your books taught me 2 have patience and self-control with women and taught me that women don’t respond to logical things that men do to get women to like them. You really write great excellent books Marc. Thank you.


It's worth it buy it! I had problems connecting with people after reading this book I feel more confident.


YOU ARE MY HERO!! This is my new beginning. All your advice has been helping me, and I’m about to drop my 2-year-sick-relationship, after understanding the importance of all you just said. Now I Know it’s a process but I’m really committed to this more than ever. I’ll be serious on myself, no more junk in my head, knowing how to handle drama, never ever bitching again, keeping my composure, controlling my feelings, and being a real man!! I don’t know how to express my gratitude
