The Philippines, being a country archipelago of islands and seas, have naturally wonderful beaches, some of which are famous the world over.
Beaches like Puerto Galera, Boracay, and the various beaches in Cebu rake in tourists from around the world all year round because of their pristine and cool blue waters and fine, white-sand shores.
However, most of the guys I meet online have hobbies that include things like extreme hiking, skiing, biking, four-wheeling, etc.
I understand every guy needs hobbies and that’s great but these guys always mention that they want a woman who shares their interests and I don’t like any of those things, in fact, I can’t do most of them because of health issues and lack of any athletic ability.
The Muricay Beach is located further away, at 4 kilometers, but the white sands and clear seas more than make up for the distance.
There are also mangrove tracts and seaweed plantations nearby, for those who are interested in such plant specimens.
Which makes sense when you’re single and have a lot of time to fill. But when you’re looking for a relationship, hobbies can be extremely problematic.
Free advice from a happily married dating coach: he must TOLERATE your dogs. And he must TOLERATE how long it takes you to get ready.
I also work out some mornings between -, but that never gets in the way of our life.
My wife and kids always come before my “hobbies.” If your hobbies are structured similarly, that’s great. However, this is not the case for many people who prefer to build their relationships around their passions instead of vice versa. If he plays golf for four hours every Saturday and Sunday, and you see it as a perfect time to ride your bike or see your girlfriends, that’s cool.
So yes, Mandy, I hijacked your question to say something I’ve wanted to say for 14 years.
Many of my clients have passions: restoring houses, forming new businesses, traveling internationally.
