7 Cool Hobbies to Try with Your Boyfriend ...

Have you ever noticed that some couples seem to have such a great time doing things together? It’s likely because they’re not always doing an activity or pursuing a hobby the girl wants to do — they’re probably doing things they both want to do! If you want to try a hobby your boyfriend might like, I can help! Here’s a list to give you some ideas… 7 cool hobbies to try with the man in your life!

Home-brewing Beer

If you like cooking or baking, then you may want to try home-brewing your own beer! What man wouldn’t fall, or stay, head over heels in love with a girl that can make a mean IPA or stout? It takes a little time and patience, but it’s fun, and so rewarding to drink a beer you’ve made yourself… with a little help from your sweetie!


Target Shooting

My boyfriend has a collection of handguns and he loves to shoot them at the range. I went with him once, on a whim, and now I’m hooked! It’s a little expensive, and very, very loud, but this is one hobby your boyfriend and you will both love — and you even get to compete with him!


Rock Climbing

Rock climbing is a very manly pastime, and is fantastic exercise, especially for your upper body… so why not give it a try? It’s a great idea to try an indoor wall first, to get some practice in, but if you climb all winter, you’ll be ready to try the real thing by summer!


Flag Football

In my little suburb of Detroit, there are a number of flag football leagues, co-ed, and it’s so much fun to play! Without the worry of being tackled and injured, we girls actually have some advantages — we’re pretty light on our feet, and so fast! Wouldn’t it be fun to play on a flag football team with your boyfriend?



Ah, golf. It’s a men’s and a women’s sport, so you may already play. If you don’t though, know this — it involves a lot of walking, which means a lot of time together. It’s also a lot of fun, if you can ever develop your swing (I’m still working on mine)…

Rock Band

It’s just a simple fact — boys love video games, and they love playing (or pretending to play) rock music. Playing Rock Band is a big improvement over playing air guitar and air drums, or singing into your hairbrush… and with so many great songs to choose from, why not try it? Your boyfriend will appreciate a bass player or lead singer, and you’ll have a chance to impress him by hitting those high notes.



Perhaps a little more relaxed than the other things on this list, but fishing can be a great hobby to try with your man. It’s calm, quiet, and can even lead to a fab home-cooked fish dinner. So you can impress him with your fish-catching skills and your cooking skills!

Would these hobbies be so much fun to try with your boyfriend? I know I love target shooting and playing Rock Band with mine, and I can’t wait to try golf… I’m not positive about fishing yet, but we’ll see! Which of these do you and your boyfriend do together? Or is there something you do with him that’s not on this list? Please let me know!

and yes i am a guy posting on a all women talk site. why because In issues of relationships you should always go to the source or in this case your guy.

Impressive and creative proposals.

How could you say COD doesnt have zombies?!?! Lol... It's ok not everyone is called for the zombie apocolypse! Hahaha just playing. But yeah it does I dont know if its a mod but its the COD Worlds at War... Sounds really gamer lamer but I am actually excited about the Black Ops coming out tonight! I NEVER thought I would say that, but yeah, I now find myslef there! But yeah this list is ideas of things out of the box... Anyone would say movies paintballin, dinner but those activites run into some money, I believe having fun is something you both enjoy that is not breaking the bank! I would not be sitting enjoying a $30 dinner with a $30 movie after. I would be loosing my dinner and annoyed with quality of the movie, knowing if I just wait a month or 2 I can watch it at the $1 theatre. I love to have fun but above all I love to save money makes me feel better that I got the same laughs and jokes at 75% less than the average American!

I really don't think this is a helpful article. Taking someone with you to do things you love and they hate, ruins the experience. Don't spoil guy time, and don't drag an unwilling man around a vintage fashion market unless you want to go home grumpy and empty handed. I'd say if your man does all these things, you should think about finding someone a bit more interesting. And by the way, shooting destroys your hearing.

Uh, interesting.. not stuff I'd normally try, that's for sure. haha
