10 Hobbies That Make People Un-Dateable: Pranks, Social Media, and Gambling

Would you date someone who obsessively collects Stanley tumblers . . . or is that becoming a red flag?

Everyone on the dating scene has at least ONE deal-breaker, but people online are talking specifically about HOBBIES that are red flags.  Here are a few:

1.  Pranking people . . . particularly mean-spirited pranks.

2.  Being obsessed with celebrity culture . . . especially worshipping celebrities.

3.  Being obsessed with politics . . . particularly when it’s rage- and hate-fueled.

4.  Bullfighting . . . dog-fighting, or anything else that’s harmful to animals.

5.  Collecting controversial memorabilia . . . like things involving serial killers, Nazis, pornography, taxidermy, and things with racist or hateful symbols.

6.  Being a social media “influencer.”  (They asked about hobbies . . . it’s unclear if people feel the same if you’re successful enough that it’s a job.  Or maybe that’s even worse?)

7.  Gambling . . . it’s both the financial risk AND the personality.

8.  Smoking weed . . . and a few people said drinking.  Again, not occasionally partaking, it’s making it a HOBBY and a big part of your personality.

(On a lighter note, someone joked, quote, “Smoking . . . I can’t stand a woman who’s leaving in the middle of the party to check on her brisket.”)

And these last two go hand-in-hand:

9.  People who are so extreme and obsessive about their hobbies that it consumes all their time, and it’s basically a REQUIREMENT that everyone around them shares an interest in that hobby.  Which is MORE than a “hobby.”

10.  People who have ZERO hobbies.
