Hobbies can be a wonderful way to express oneself and find joy. That said, It’s crucial to strike a balance and be mindful of how these activities might impact one’s social interactions and likeability. However, engaging in certain hobbies can sometimes make a person unlikeable to others. For example, excessive gaming can lead to social isolation and a lack of interpersonal skills, making it difficult for individuals to connect with others on a deeper level. Similarly, an intense obsession with collecting rare items may create an air of arrogance or superiority, alienating others who may not share the same passion. Additionally, hobbies that involve excessive self-promotion or attention-seeking behavior, such as relentlessly posting selfies or constantly discussing personal achievements, can also be off-putting.
One user shared, “My husband’s gaming. He was a “gamer” well before he met me, and I don’t expect him to stop anytime soon, nor do I expect him to stop, but he spends 90% of his free time online gaming with his friends. It’s super annoying!”
A second user added, “Those gym influencers. You know, the ones that are constantly posting their workouts and meal preps, like “we get it, you work out, you’re healthy.” Find a new hobby.”
A third user said, “Polo players. There’s a polo field at a park near where I live. Never once met a player who wasn’t an a****hole or a horse that wasn’t scared.”
This person recalled, “Weed smokers. Apparently, smoking weed is a hobby now. Anytime they feel the need to point out how big of a pothead they are. I live in Colorado, so it has been far more prevalent.”
Someone added, “People who try to spread ANY religion 24/7. I’ll believe what I do. Thank you for informing me but don’t do it again.”
Social Media Influencers
A poster commented, “Being really into tweeting and making Tik-Toks. I feel like those platforms make people believe that their mundane thoughts are way more important than they actually are. As someone in their late 20s, whenever I meet someone my age who spends a lot of time posting to these platforms, they tend to exhibit narcissistic tendencies. Just my experience.”
A top-liked comment said, “Disney Adults. I grew up in Orange County, and like… 30 to 40% of everyone I’ve ever known living there is a Disney adult to some degree. In my experience, they’re typically no more or less insufferable than any other upper-middle-class person from Southern California.”
This commenter shared, “Modifying vehicles specifically to make them visually and/or aurally loud. Aftermarket exhausts, thumping subwoofers, ostentatious vinyl wraps, etc. It’s just annoying. I’ve been a gearhead my whole life. But in the last two decades or so, it’s just gotten so stupid. So much of the aftermarket is focused on attention-seeking, rather than performance or comfort.”
Someone commented, “When someone tells me their hobby is traveling, it would be mine if I had money, buddy, mine too.”
One poster stated, “Gambling for monetary return based on random chance knowing that you’re more likely to have thrown the money away rather than see a profit or to break even, for that matter. More specifically, betting on sports, fights, races, or anything in a casino.”
This commenter posted, “Anything ethereal. Tarot Cards, Crystals, Astrology, hexes, all that nonsense.”
Hunters For Sport
A top-liked comment said, “Hunting animals for fun. If you actually ate or utilized the animal in any way, it would be different, but if you’re just doing it for fun, it gives me serial killer vibes.”
This user shared, “Social media trend chasing. In other words, people who aren’t genuinely interested in anything. They’re bandwagoners, only in it for the clout. They don’t like something if it’s not popular on social media, and once it’s not a big thing, they throw it aside and forget about it.
Multi-Level Market Agents
Someone added, “MLM/Herbalife/ any pyramid scheme involvement. Every single time I tried to be a friend with somebody who was a part of this, it ultimately resulted in them trying to draft me into their creepy cult.”
Finally, a user said, “Bicyclists – those spandex-wearing, traffic law-ignoring, entitled jerks that think they own the road.”
