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.

Perfect and concise. This book is what every nice guy has dreamed of. It gives the formula and reasoning behind why they generally don't have success with women... even though they have adapted to the things the women have claimed they wanted.


New insight here. Being of an older generation, have found this both extremely helpful and baffling. In listening to this, I can see how things could have been handled differently, respective of some of the more serious potential relationships in my life. There is some learning to be done here. Grateful for this new insight.


Informative. REAL Good. Got straight to what I needed to learn. The key, educate yourself. Recommended. Great Listening. Helps me to keep on track.


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


Declare War on Yourself is my new bible. Each page is impactful and a catalyst for changing behavior. It does not contain any rah rah motivation talk, nor tear-jerking inspiration stories. Just plain battlefield success principles.

Hey bro, I just want to thank you personally for your book. I listen to it everyday and keeps my mind in the right place. Your blunt and to the point. It's helping me grow my business and stay focused on what really matters. I love everything you have in it. I'm finding out myself that buying stuff is an endless road and you really helped me ponder on the meaning behind all that. So many awesome things in your book. I have read hundreds of books over the last few years and yours is the gem. I'm on my fifth time through it and still just as impactful as the first. From all the books, you're the only one I've felt inspired enough to send a personal message too. Most books get you pumped up temporary but then they have no practical application for life. Yours does. It's the real deal. I'm selling my car and I get the things you hit on. Hope we can meet in person one day. Thanks again and just want you to know you're changing my life. Buying stuff is useless. Like a rock. I love it man. And I just experienced my own thing that validates everything I've been listening to in your book. Anyway, I could go on and on but I'll stop here. Much success to you.


Keep up the stellar work! You’ve just changed my Life for the better, and I will be sure to turn many others onto your material!


I have benefited immensely from your work. I have learned to be more confident, self-sufficient and have realized the mistakes I had made in my previous relationship.


Best money I’ve ever spent. I have a hard time learning from books and listening to audiobooks. But talking to you one on one has made it so much easier to understand and learn because I don’t get stuck wondering what something means. After 7 calls, I feel like a different man and my thinking is on another level. Don’t know where I’d be if I hadn’t met you.

Mr. Summers. First and foremost I would like to say that your books, especially your the 99 Bad Boy Traits one, have impacted my life tremendously and have helped me throughout myself in my young adulthood. Your eBooks and the information you provide through the research example, quotes, and personal experiences have made my route a little smoother.


“I read the first chapter and I was hooked. Because of this book, Declare War on Yourself, my life is truly going in the right direction in all aspects. It has been awakening and your personal letter hit me the most.”

Will D.

Good information and coming from a nice guy with some inherent bad boy traits, it helped me to clarify the differences and to point out a lot of of mistakes I was making but wasn’t fully aware of. The information is applicable to life, personal, business, friendships, relationships, etc. take out of it what works for you.

Eye opening! My husband and I are doing some soul searching making drastic changes in our lives.

CharlesFull on, no holds barred common sense.

Loved it. Committing that when I finished, that I would go back to the start. Along the lines of TS Eliot's famous line, 'We shall not cease from exploration. And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time'. I have strongly recommended to my three adult sons that they listen to this. It's the type of book that your wished you got when you were twenty.


Dear Mr. Summers, I just wanted to contact you to thank you for your wonderful book, 98 ways to stop masturbating. It was a chronic addiction in my youth, but your strategies have helped me overcome it. So, in honor of 98 days in a row of no masturbating and no porn, I wanted to contact you to say thank you. You are doing a good thing. Keep up the good work!
