“9 Hobbies Which Will Turn Any Man Off A Girl”

fujoshi-by-zero

A list of 9 hobbies which will purportedly cause any right thinking male to spurn any woman so deviant as to pursue them is currently the subject of much attention online – boys love, online gaming, visual-kei and, of course, anime figures, all seem to be regarded as shortcuts to spinsterhood…

The list:

1. She loves Korean dramas so much she makes regular trips to Korea

“I’d wonder if she sees anything good in Japanese men!” – man in his twenties

2. She collects bishonen or bishoujo anime figures

“It’d be pretty freaky if she had those figures in her room” – man in his twenties

3. She loves reading “boys love” homosexual male romance novels and manga

“I’d be frightened of her imagining me in those kind of BL situations…” – teenage man

4. She’s glued to her PC playing online games

“I have the impression these kinds of people spend all their holidays cooped up in their dirty little rooms” – man in his twenties

5. She’s makes a hobby of constantly observing other people in public

“I’d be a bit doubtful of a girl who made a hobby of watching other people” – man in his twenties

6. She’s an idol or visual-kei groupie

“If a girl I liked was into idols, I’d feel insecure as there is no way I could match up” – teenage man

7. She likes making engineering level modifications of cars and bikes

“That’s just something men do, right?” – man in his twenties

8. She likes karate and boxing and other martial arts

“If she got angry she might beat you senseless!” – man in his thirties

9. She’s a gambler, into pachinko and horse racing

“It suggests a rather dubious economic outlook, and is not something you’d want your girlfriend to be doing” – man in his twenties

If the list is to be believed, about the only safe things for women to like are probably cooking and Hello Kitty – though not too much in either case.

Actual Japanese males (or those on 2ch at any rate) are surprisingly magnanimous about the list, as might be expected of the desperate:

“Apart from gambling, who cares about any of this? No man is in a position to be picky about this stuff!”

“All this only applies to the ugly ones…”

“Only 1, 5 and 6 bother me.”

“It’s a list of fujoshi-type stuff really, isn’t it?”

“They just reused one of the lists for men.”

“I could forgive any of them – but if I found out she hung out on 2ch I’d be grossed out!”

“Nothing about smokers? Do the list again.”

“Apart from 8 they are all fine. I can’t imagine anyone who plays pachinko is anything more than an idiot.”

“MMO addicts have a psychological disorder, so that’s a bit hard to accept.”

“Anime otaku, bishoujo figure collector, makes her own PCs – so that’s why my little sister will never be able to get married.”

“Likes celebrities, sports, gambling, drinking and speed dating – those should be the basis of the list.”

“Don’t care about her hobbies, but I couldn’t be having with a smoker!”

“You lot don’t care about the BL stuff?”

“Who cares!”

“Otaku girls are the best!”

“MMO fans will let you do them really easily – source: me.”

“Visual-kei fans are land-mines. 80%+ are crazies.”

“A girl into martial arts is likely to be well received, surely? It’s nice looking at a girl with a brave set to her features (as long as they’re hot).”

“I don’t watch anime but I like eroge and manga. I don’t collect figures but I think they’re cute. I have no boyfriend!”

“Basically no men care about fujoshi hobbies at all.”

The same site’s opinions on why an otaku girl might actually be worth dating may also be of interest.

        • Apparently. Those bother me as well as 9 and possibly 6.

          I think 8, 7, and 4 are actually pretty hot (with the right personality or looks).

          2 and 3 don’t really care.

          5 – that’s just what people DO in the UK >.>

        • Well that’s going into obvious territory for a lot… though YMMV on it I guess…

          and it also depends on whether or not you’re going for “dating” or a “serious relationship” which the article doesn’t really make clear, since people will answer based on what they’ve personally experienced or how they were raised to think that one exists while the other doesn’t.

          Since it’s all based on where you grew up and what “community raised you.” Then I’ll quickly clarify; the only difference between dating and something serious for me is while dating, I’m ok with her seeing other guys because Im definitely gonna be interested in other girls.

          As for something serious then for me it is just 9 off THAT particular list, but yeah, HEAVY drinker, out, HEAVY smoker, out, addict, there go three strikes.

          Dating? fine with both smoking and drinking, but leave the addicts out still, and not even 9 matters on dating because I’m not seriously considering anything long term anyway.

    • 1. Only a insecure person would think that she wouldn’t see anything in Japanese men because she is into Korean Dramas, she is with a Japanese man so she is into Japanese men, that’s all their is to it…

      2. Comment is stupid as fuck & doesn’t deserve any more attention then that but if the hobby got to the point where she wouldn’t stop when she wasn’t really able to afford them then it would be a immediate turn off right there but otherwise, no problem, just saying…

      3. I will say that I have no problem with anything she reads honestly but at the same time…I understand what the person is trying to say, some people will think that it means something pretty disturbing to most straight men, just saying…

      4. Understand if the hobby becomes an ridiculous obsession but I find the person’s statement to be absolutely retarded & not grasping the real problem with the hobby what so ever, dumbass fucker…

      5. I don’t really get what that means too well but from what I got I say this…sometimes people are concerned that something may happen to them I mean it is dangerous in public though if she is doing it in a perverted way then that could be a problem & I have no problem with the person’s statement…

      6. This is definitely not for the reason the person stated as I am never that weak of a man but I loathe fan girls so seeing her get all over eccentric to 11 over an idol or whatever would be a a HELL of a turn off, no question as I find it immature to be that out of control just because you see an idol or celebrity or something, sorry but true…

      7. That is a huge plus & like the person who made the statement under the hobby, any 1 else as well who thinks what he does is like him a fucking waste of space among humanity & is unable to adapt to even positive change, I’m sorry but not being able to accept something like that is a moral defect & nothing more, just let the woman do something that will benefit you even please, yikes…

      8. I am not concerned about her beating me literally senseless but I would be annoyed if a woman I was with would always hit me every single time or even any time we have a notable disagreement or whatever so I understand what the person’s statement is actually implying but I am more then fine with a woman learning how to defend herself which would actually benefit you in some ways as well but that being said, if she ever hits me for an unjustified reason…she won’t be living the next moment, fuck that shit, I can’t hit you, you can’t hit me, end of story…

      9. I agree with the later part of the person’s statement but not the former part of it necessary…I however will not like my girlfriend into activities that are as Dept inducing as gambling, horse racing & pachinko or whatever the fuck it is, it’s just a waste of time & more so then that, money which is just needed for anything in today’s society…

      Overall, I rate this poll a C- as it is just speaking from a fujoshi or otaku girl’s perspective & not referring to women in general as much as it should which I hate…

      • 1. now, if she is actually taking trips to korea to meet fucking soap opera actors… there are some red flags here. will she stay with you, or get someone who is more understanding. or if offered would she give her body over to those actors?

        2. id have to say, so long as she has the room, and its not in the bedroom.

        3. i dont give a fuck, but some people are so against homo, its not like she wants you to get butt fucked by a man while she watches.

        4. cheap date, take her on a quest and give her the rare loot.

        5. this would also concern me, only if conversations about those people made up the bulk of the conversations.

        6. yea, if they are following them around just to hit up their next gig, i see a problem, especially considering they are visual kei, because generally they suck, and have to get sales by style over music.

        7. dood thats sexy, and a hobby i could get behind. would be fun building your own motor cycle, or car.

        8. so long as practicing didn’t kill her figure or fuck with her boobs, as i do like a good face, and i love muscle on a woman, so long as it doenst turn boobs into upside down saggy looking v’s

        9. i live about 70 mils from the nearest casino. i have never lost money once when i go there, but i also never take much money either, only about 1-4 hours of gambling, depending on bet size. however pachinko, i cant see any good from that, considering i think you cant cash out for money.

    • Agreed. 5…I won’t say anything but 9 is a bit of problem….

      Srsly, why can’t women have same hobby as some us?

      Not to be a douchbag,
      My GF doesn’t care about me loving idols or having porn..I mean healthy magazines under my bed. Instead she says “it’s healthy”

    • 9. Smoker. 8. It’s great she can defend herself in a lover’s spat, though if she lose control it won’t be pretty. Self defense by the guy can still land him in jail or probation with record.

        • In all reality, every girl I’ve ever dated was into martial arts. I don’t know why, but that little knowledge of that she can keep up with me in Athletics/Fighting is a huge turn on.

          Girl I’m dating now know judo, and i have no problem what so ever when she uses it to get me to the ground for some fun 😀

        • > Doesn’t matter if you’re a man, you might be stronger at birth and have more muscle growth, but a woman can still beat your ass up pretty badly.

          Sure, but it depends a lot on how you are built. I work and play on computers all day, never do weights, still beat a semi-professional female kick boxer at arm wrestling.

          She beats the living crap out of me in resistance though.

        • A woman who does engineering level mods on bikes? Egads, that’s a wonderful woman! How could any man spurn such a woman?

          And a woman who observes others? Wouldn’t she enliven any conversation by talking about the bunch of weirdos across the street or point out all my fashion faux pas before I walk out and embarrass myself? I would want such a woman too!

        • Because all women are weak, right? Haha..

          Tell that to a Russian sometime, or hell any girl worth a shit in that department. Doesn’t matter if you’re a man, you might be stronger at birth and have more muscle growth, but a woman can still beat your ass up pretty badly.

        • >Only weak men are threatened by a girl who knows martial arts or self defense. If you’re scared your girl can beat you up, you need to step it up.”

          The inflammatory tone aside, fear of karate is irrational, as opposed to say fear of chronic abuse. A girl doesn’t need karate to manipulate a man in twisted and horrible ways, physical or no.

          Heck, we need more girls in America who aren’t afraid to spar. Would be more fun than watching your date turn into a fatty over the years.

  • I see most of these as a plus to be honest, 9 indicates a gambling addict so that’s a no.. but other than that I don’t care or I see it as a plus. A figure collecting internet addict that’s into visual kei is fine with me!

  • wow really. What about

    1. Lazy
    2. Bitchy
    3. Into bring her BF to watch films like Twilight *heaves*
    4. Constantly listens and sings out loud crappy songs Like Justin Booby (listening to it quietly is fine)
    5. bitchy
    6. bitchy
    7. bitchy
    8. can’t cook (just kidding) bitchy
    9. bitchy

    Honestly if a girl just be’s herself does what she likes and whats right, if she syncs with you the 9 lists thing wont matter 😉

  • 1. This would kinda bother me but more because of economical and environmental reasons. I guess I’d also be a bit concerned if she’d get too weird ideas from the dramas…

    2. Pfft, if I had a better income I would collect figures myself… If she had a figure collection, I would probably not mind at all taking a day just going through it together with her.

    3. Well, I’m a yuri fan, so it’d feel a wee bit hypocritical of me if I thought badly of a girl for being into BL.

    4. Depends on what online games she was playing. If it was a multiplayer game that I could get into I’d join her, if not, well, then the relationship would probably crumble pretty quickly…

    5. Define “observe”, please. Because I tend to spend a lot of time looking at people. How they dress, how they behave, what they talk about and thus consider to be important in today’s world et c. et c.

    6. If she’s willing to have me for a boyfriend she has a realistic enough perspective in my eyes. There’ll always be someone better out there, but if she realizes that she’s better off settling for something a little closer to Earth, that’s all I need to know to feel reassured.

    7. As long as her modifications aren’t hazardous or illegal I would quite honestly consider it a pretty cool hobby to have.

    8. Once again, I’d be fine with that. Just because she likes MA doesn’t mean she practices it and even if she did, well, athletic and strong girlfriend! I’d definitely have nothing against that. ^^

    9. Okay, now, THIS would be something I’d see a problem with. It’d be squandering money, basically flushing them greens down the toilet, not to mention the hazards of addictions… No, THIS I couldn’t accept.

  • 1: I really don’t see why that’s a problem, except the making regular trips thing. Living expenses alone in Japan is bad, so it might make an issue with money. I, however wouldn’t mind so long as she takes me too. Korean dramas aren’t bad even though I only saw two.

    2: I’d love a woman with a hobby, especially figure collecting. Exactly why is this an issue with anyone? You think it’d be more along the lines of stuffed animals…

    3: This double standard shit has to stop. I’m bi, so I could care less, but the Yuri is hot and Yaoi is NO is by all means retarded. Besides, half if not most of that stuff is just as unrealisic as any other form of idealistic fantasy. Stop being so damn insecure.

    4: It’s only a problem if it interferes with the rest of your life. If she isn’t on it 24/7 or only plays it for the sheer fun or whatever, again it’s something she likes to do.

    5: They make it sound like she’s constantly comparing herself to other people. It’s too vague, but in this case I may have to agree. Or she could just be a people watcher. It’s amusing to see what kind of odd crap people do when they think no one’s looking.

    6: Seriously, what’s wrong with these people? It’s not like she’s gonna turn around and say, “You can’t sing or act, I’m done.” If she’s dating you, she likes you. This list is should really be called 9 Flaws and Insecurites within Men That Will Turn Off Any Woman

    7: A girl once said to me “Girls shouldn’t know anything about car or how to make them!” If that isn’t typecasting your own gender, I don’t know what is. It seems so few and far between that women do have knowledge about these things, and when they do, everyone gets intimidated or they say it isn’t lady like. Fuck you. If she can fix a car or a bike, that’s WIN.

    8: If you made her made to the point where she’s kicking your ass with black belt level skills. It’s probably your fault. A girl that can kick ass against a guy 3 times her size is awesome.

    9: This would be a cause for concern, hands down. Gambling, drinking, smoking, whatever have you. That being said, this is from Japan’s or Artefact’s point of view and one glance at the other surveys and dating topics on this site says so much for insight of both.

  • 1. Korean dramas are OK. Trips aren’t.
    2. Very OK.
    3. A friend’s in this situation. We’re the ones usually paired with him. *Shiver*
    4. I hate online games.
    5. Observing people are fine, staling isn’t.
    6. Agreed.
    7+8. AWESOME!!

    9. THREAT!!!

    I noticed these are mostly hobbies that concern expenditures and insecurities. WTH.

  • “9 Hobbies That Will Turn Any Man Off From a Girl”

    Ah yes, welcome to the wonderful world where men like women.
    …Nevermind this is Japan.
    Welcome to the wonderful world where men like girls.

  • 1. She loves Korean dramas so much she makes regular trips to Korea

    I’m REALLY sure girls like this are kinda rare…

    2. She collects bishonen or bishoujo anime figures

    awesome, I wonder how her collection looks to mine?

    3. She loves reading “boys love” homosexual male romance novels and manga

    I read yuri…everything needs balance.

    4. She’s glued to her PC playing online games

    awesome, il have to find what game and join her.

    5. She’s makes a hobby of constantly observing other people in public

    ehhh, that can be a little…weird, but everyone is a little nosey in some way.

    6. She’s an idol or visual-kei groupie

    Let people enjoy what they like…

    7. She likes making engineering level modifications of cars and bikes

    That’s awesome, if my shit breaks Il not have to pay the outrageous mechanic fee

    8. She likes karate and boxing and other martial arts

    Aslong as i don’t piss her off, this is fine

    9. She’s a gambler, into pachinko and horse racing

    Look, if its not my money being spent, i don’t care…altho i will attempt to steer her out of it for obvious reasons.

  • About half that stuff I wouldn’t care or outright find attractive.

    If she collects figures, she has a similar hobby to me. Attractive.

    Online games? Another hobby that we’d share.

    She’s mechanically savvy enough to mess with her rides, that just shows confidence and independence. Damn hot.

    She’s into martial arts, she’s likely to be in shape. Visually attractive is likely. But even regular athleticism is.

    Any man who complains about these things is no man. Go find your dolls and hug pillows and leave real women to guys who know how to appreciate them.

  • Jesus are Japanese men such insecure pussies? women who mods their cars and bikes, likes martial arts, plays PC online games… there’s nothing wrong with those! I prefer girls who are little tomboy than overly feminine bullshit.

  • I posted cause currently procrastinating on doing a term paper.

    true reason for the list above are:
    1. the ’20 yrs old Japanese man’has insecurity towards his face or manly parts
    2. the ’20 yrs old Japanese man’is a hypocrite ya right like you don’t have figures you know the one with tentacles :p
    3. the ’20 yrs old Japanese man’probably homophobic /closet homo
    4. ’20 yrs old Japanese man’get mistaken for a 6 yrs old and stalk by pedophiles while he was playing online
    5. she stalking people while I am stalking her not fair said ’20 yrs old Japanese man’ 🙁
    6. ’20 yrs old Japanese man’ admitted it.
    7. ’20 yrs old Japanese man’ probably a sexist or a 60+ yrs old pedophile acting like 20
    8. there’s no way I can rape her 🙁 said ’20 yrs old Japanese man’
    9. dammit she just cut & sold my man-gina organ to science so she can use the money to gamble (this the only one I am worried about)
    This List should be renamed top 9 reasons why PICKY Japanese men are FOREVER ALONE (and the not so picky should have harems before brutally murdered by said harem)

  • Holy shite is that narrow-minded and stupid.

    Except for the gambling part (which as bad in a man as in a woman), some of those are actually things I’d aim for.

    And who cares if she’s into idols anyway? If she’s so crazy about them, she should try to date one. In most cases, they wouldn’t care for anything else than fucking her anyway. And that’s a level where you can compete, no matter how ugly you are.

  • I am partly guilty for 2 and 6. I get constantly figurines from my friends, who don`t dare collect them at home for their girlfriends/wives. All are girl figurines, though.
    Then this Visual Key thing: i play visual key music on guitar and bass, without any makeup, only with strings, cord, pedals, amp…that kind of thing.
    Otherwise i am out from danger zone!

  • I never really considered #7 a guy thing or only something butches or tomboys do. I like to call it, “mastering your domain.” Humans created technology so we’d damn well better know it.

  • Major freak out with me is number 3, and number 9 is a major relationship snafu. I actually am not turned off by a gamer girl or a girl into martial arts.
    should have added this
    Number 10. She is a heavy smoker. (that is a deal breaker with me, even this really hot girl I met she was nice, energetic and very positive and actually likes stuff I like and really wanted to get to know me, but she smokes, cigs and mj. She actually had a joint while she was drunk, if I hadn’t been the only sober person in the group (allergic to alcohol, [yes like that guy in black lagoon]) she would have suffered from a major blow to the head on teh pavement from falling on a stair rail she wanted to slide down. She would make a nice friend but not the woman for me.

  • 1. Sadly I know a lot of girls like this, they’re the Korean equivalent of weaboos.

    “I like eroge and manga. I don’t collect figures but I think they’re cute. I have no boyfriend!”

    Ditto, I do watch anime though.

  • All of those are stupid reasons, so a man can love video games and Yuri, but a woman can’t enjoy video games and homosexual novels (Or anything else for that matter). Frankly that’s beyond hypocritical.

    • Let me remind you, porn/sexual adult stuff/violence is targeted at the male audience, and FYI, Yuri is actually for females, but what do you know, men get their share in every hentai, every single motherfriggin hentai that comes out has at least 154651654 Yuri sex scene, but your point is invalid.

  • What’s wrong with all those? Appart from the gambling – well going to Korea a lot would be expensive… so if she’s a gambler – wins all the time and uses that money to go to Korea… then the two cancel each other out.

  • #3 Is kind of stupid. Most fujoshi (over like… 14 years old, that is) I know like fantasy boys to be gay, but not so much real guys. I mean, seriously, you don’t want your own boyfriend to be gay, because then he won’t want to bone you. I’ve never understood the “oh no can’t date a fujoshi they might wish I’m gay” logic, because seriously, if the girl wants you to be gay, THEY DON’T WANT TO DATE YOU.

    • Not really. Girls often do like gay boys. Tendency to want them bi or want them to change for them.
      The reason why you don’t want any lesbian is because in real life they don’t appeal to your tastes, and they’re jerks to men. Doesn’t work the same with gay men to women.

      Nah, it’s no contradiction here, it’s just that girls, like guys, do not wish all their fantasies fulfilled, especially not within a single person.

  • 7 and 8 are actually turn ons IMO.

    I like wrenching on my car and racing, so I’d appreciate a woman that can be there right with me helping me out or even joining me on the race track. At least she won’t bitch about me spending more time in the garage than with her at the mall.

    8 isn’t bad as it doesn’t necessarily mean she’ll be a total tomboy and even might make her less of a pansy about stuff.

    Bottom line, either 7 or 8 makes her less boring and you might even share some interests which is win/win. Or would you prefer a girl that just sits on the couch blabbing on her cell with her friends talking about nonsense or shopping non stop?

  • Except for 9 nothing else turns me off so Japanese men need to grow up. As long as she is good looking 1-8 absolutely mean nothing. 9 now that is one that still does not turn me off a hot women but would not touch when it comes to getting into a relationship with one.

  • I only have problem with;

    4. She’s glued to her PC playing online games

    I’m not really into online games and I don’t care if she likes them but if she stays ALL day playing them, then we have a problem

    5. She’s makes a hobby of constantly observing other people in public

    This is just annoying

    6. She’s an idol or visual-kei groupie

    this is annoying too

    9. She’s a gambler, into pachinko and horse racing

    for obvious reasons

  • 1. My mother does that… it’s annoying as hell.
    2. I do that, so it’s anything but a turnoff
    3. I know someone like that. not too creepy.
    4. THAT… can be annoying.
    5. THAT… can also be annoying
    6. I don’t really mind. Not my thing, but whatever.
    7. That’s hot in kinda a nerdy way.
    8. Chicks who kick ass are hot.
    9. Eww… That is a turnoff.

  • Other than gambling, where are any REAL issues on this list?

    Martial arts is a plus to me… If I can spar with my girlfriend… ” I’d had the reach, she had the flexibility…”, or if she’s a swordswoman… Thats a turn on for me. builds bikes, who cares. Into men on men manga, like guys dont mind women on women action when it happens? That’s normal. Likes pc games? You can play with her and when your done with the game, play with her minus the game! Korean dramas are great, so we can watch those together. Japanese has the most outrageous, wildest ideas for drama and Korean have some of the deepest love dramas out there. Some of them are very sadistic too. They dont mind killing off the entire cast… Only thing, you got to prepare for a TON of crying. Some you cant go more than a minute without someone crying for 5

  • Actually i prefer girl who can do mechanic and electronic work. its look likes some kind of tough and dependable girl if ask me

    and a girl who train martial arts, THATS MY KIND OF A GIRL. bcuz i love sporty girl and im a martial arts fan that too

    and more over, if she train MA…. THATS MEAN SHE GOT NICE AND FIRM FIGURE TOO

  • I call these “The 8 Things that will reveal how picky men can be and how similar they are to selfish girlfriends.” Seriously, except for 9, all of them sound normal to me. I don’t even like K-dramas nor even this Korean pop culture wave thing but knowing that both my mom and my sisters like them, I can simply just say there’s nothing wrong about this hobby…. as long as they don’t worship those talentless bastards called Far East Movement.

  • 1. She loves Korean dramas so much she makes regular trips to Korea
    Just don’t spend my money…

    2. She collects bishonen or bishoujo anime figures

    Fuck! Can I join right now???

    3. She loves reading “boys love” homosexual male romance novels and manga

    Then I read “yuri” manga to neutralize it

    4. She’s glued to her PC playing online games

    Fuck! Can I join right now???

    5. She’s makes a hobby of constantly observing other people in public

    Is there a problem?

    6. She’s an idol or visual-kei groupie

    Just don’t spend my money…

    7. She likes making engineering level modifications of cars and bikes

    I am impressed!(positive meaning)

    8. She likes karate and boxing and other martial arts

    Is there a problem?

    9. She’s a gambler, into pachinko and horse racing

    Just don’t spend my money…

    • Mostly agreed.

      I’d let the girl use my money for 6. It’s fair game in my book.

      I wouldn’t want to get involved with someone into #9. Even if they don’t touch my money, I don’t trust them to make no attempt, and when they do, they’re trouble. I’m not supposed to play innocent at that moment like I didn’t see that coming.

  • 1. She loves Korean dramas so much she makes regular trips to Korea

    ^ LOL they worry about this shit? if she’s interested in *YOU* is what matters

    2. She collects bishonen or bishoujo anime figures

    “It’d be pretty freaky if she had those figures in her room” – man in his twenties

    ^ … Rofl

    3. She loves reading “boys love” homosexual male romance novels and manga

    “I’d be frightened of her imagining me in those kind of BL situations…” – teenage man

    ^ This I kinda agree with tho..

    4. She’s glued to her PC playing online games

  • JASHINHUNTER says:

    “She collects bishonen or bishoujo anime figures” I could put mine next to hers 😀

    “She likes making engineering level modifications of cars and bikes” That would be pretty cool.

    “She likes karate and boxing and other martial arts” That would be fucking awesome.

    “Anime otaku, bishoujo figure collector, makes her own PCs” She would be my best friend.

  • They are crazy arn’t they? The people answering the questions, all the responses sound like a perfectly normal girl. I guess they wanted to date a boy instead?

    See, the girl that chews chewing tobacco isn’t on the list. The girl that collects and saves tampons and samples from her monthly period isn’t on the list. The girl that uses the sissors in the kitchen that opens sealed cooking bags, to trimb her hairy thatch – isn’t on the list. Also, the girl that collects and saves mens underware to show their girl friends just how bad ‘he’ is, isn’t there. There are so many bad hobbies and I don’t see one on the list above.

  • Man, I don’t have a problem with any of that, except the gambling…and even then, I have no problem with pachinko if she keeps her expenditures sensible and plays it for fun. (I like pachinko, too!)

    Hell, I actually like girls who can kick my ass. Not GETTING my ass kicked by them, mind you, I simply mean I like aggressive girls…even though my ideal is closer to the opposite.

    And a girl who’s into mechanical stuff would be a huge turn-on. Perhaps even more so than if she were into electronics, my field, because I wouldn’t have to worry about feeling a sense of rivalry or anything.

  • 3. She loves reading “boys love” homosexual male romance novels and manga
    “I’d be frightened of her imagining me in those kind of BL situations…” – teenage man

    You’d be frighten to find out you would actually love to be in those BL situations <.< that's what those dots at the end of the statement tell me.

  • Silly japs. I’ve never seen a modern society so hell-bent on keeping up this idea of what men and women should and should not do based solely on their genders.

    Might as well just tell women to go back to the kitchen and men to get back to fighting the war and buying bonds so as to “support their troops.”

    • Exactly. I know there are other countries who view the sexes this way, but it’s more surreal with Japan because they are one of the more modern/developed countries. It’s just unbelievable that they can be so backwards when it comes to social situations and gender lines.

      Maybe that’s one of the many reasons no one is fucking over there.

    • Half of these things are *exactly* the same complaints that are made in “hobbies that will turn any girl off a man”.

      You should really be commending the Japanese for expecting more-or-less the same behaviour in men and women.

      But I suppose that wouldn’t give you the opportunity to whine about gender politics and feel superior.

  • What an idiotic list. Basically all but 9 aren’t a problem for me (although I can kind of understand 3 if you’re just plain annoyed by most fujoshi–I know I am). The rest are just hobbies, and if she’s actually obsessed about them, the obsession is the problem rather than the hobby itself.

    This is fine if it’s widespread though…more awesome wimminz for the rest of us.

  • 2ch: “Anime otaku, bishoujo figure collector, makes her own PCs – so that’s why my little sister will never be able to get married.”

    Me: “Introduce me to your little sister!”

    2ch: “I don’t watch anime but I like eroge and manga. I don’t collect figures but I think they’re cute. I have no boyfriend!”

    Me: “Let’s meet!”

  • “She loves Korean dramas so much she makes regular trips to Korea”
    That means she’s suckin some other guy’s cock. And, amazingly, he’s not even an American or European.

    “She’s makes a hobby of constantly observing other people in public”
    Catty bitches are the worst.

    “Likes celebrities, sports, gambling, drinking and speed dating – those should be the basis of the list.”
    Guarantee she’s blown half of Japan’s professional athletes, dive bar bands and all of her coworkers too. Do. Not. Want.

    “She’s an idol or visual-kei groupie”
    Once again, she’s blown everyone in the band and every celeb who’d bed her. Hope you don’t mind paying for Valtrex every month, cause you’re gonna need it.

  • Lets see what applies to me…
    #2: Maybe if I had money…
    #3: I can’t help it if I’m perverted…
    #4: eh I’d rather play console RPG’s…
    #7: Pft… I could care less for cars or bikes… I’d modify my computer though. ;3
    #8: I like to watch them in movies and games, but I don’t like fighting…

    I need to find me a geeky man. ;_;

  • 1. She loves Korean dramas so much she makes regular trips to Korea -> This is make me feel like retard, because i rarely watch korean dramas

    5. She’s makes a hobby of constantly observing other people in public -> I`m speechless for this..

    6. She’s an idol or visual-kei groupie -> This is little bit.. uneasy for me.. because.. well.. I can`t match up with those bishounen! -_-‘

    9. She’s a gambler, into pachinko and horse racing -> This is definitely big no! -_-‘

  • 1. She loves Korean dramas so much she makes regular trips to Korea

    Could be worse, she might like Cops and reality TV like my wife does.

    2. She collects bishonen or bishoujo anime figures

    I guess they were only asking non anime males?

    3. She loves reading “boys love” homosexual male romance novels and manga

    Any anime liking male wouldn’t find this annoying though.

    4. She’s glued to her PC playing online games

    As if men don’t do this.

    5. She’s makes a hobby of constantly observing other people in public

    Odd but hardly bothersome.

    6. She’s an idol or visual-kei groupie

    Never cared for any kind of groupie myself, but I suppose I like Hatsune Miku a bit much.

    7. She likes making engineering level modifications of cars and bikes

    This makes her someone to marry immediately, she’s clearly capable of a very good income.

    8. She likes karate and boxing and other martial arts

    The key is to not be an asshole in need of a beating.

    9. She’s a gambler, into pachinko and horse racing

    Well I hate gambling myself, so I’d make her quit this.

    • Yes, dude I’m in the same boat as you. I’m also a korean and I hate how the entire Asian continent has become a fucking ladyboy culture. It’s fucking ridiculous looking at the asian exchange students who I can’t even tell what gender they are…
      They need to get a fucking buzz cut and hit the gym. If you are a man and over 20, you gotta lose that skinny teenage physique. It seems most asian men keep that physique all their life.

    • I don’t think the guys are the reason Japanese girls go to Japan. I think it’s the girls!

      Compared to Japanese women, Korean women in entertainment are viewed as more powerful and more able to hold their own. They aren’t the stereotypical weak/overly-cute/submissive girls that are shown in Japanese entertainment.

      Keep in mind it’s not only Korean dramas that do well, but also the K-pop girl groups.

  • I can’t stress enough just how much #1 pisses me off.

    I have friends who know girls that say “Oh my gawd, K-Drama is so great” and they don’t give any other type of drama a chance because it isn’t labeled ‘Korean’, let alone OTHER genres for shows.

    tl;dr Vast majority of K-Drama fangirls = close-minded clusterfucks.

  • 1 – That would be fucking stupid.

    2 – A turn off, but not a deal breaker.

    3 – I have to agree with the Japanese teenager’s objection to this.

    4 – That’s a problem if she does it excessively; no-one wants to take second place to a shitty MMO.

    5 – That shit really grinds my gears.

    6 – Yet again, the Japanese respondent sums it up

    7 – I see no problem with this, as long as it’s not an obsession. Akshully, it’s quite cute, and it proves she’s not some airheaded bimbo

    8 – That’s a double-edged sword; it’s only a big problem if she can’t control her temper (and I wouldn’t want a girl with that personality flaw anyway)

    9 – That’s bad. Especially in a country where women are expected to look after household finances.

  • Fortunately, any girl who is moderately attractive or even remotely cute doesn’t have these traits.

    Life isn’t anime where the attractive model and all around popular girl is obsessed with life consuming/destroying habbits.

    Aside from that, some of these aren’t a big deal at all unless it crosses into the territory of being insanely expensive.
