No because I couldn't give a shit what someone else thinks.
bruh, you should not feel shame if its not impacting your life and from your list, you are doing really well for yourself. Fuck em, don't let people tell you grow up with your interests. As long as they aren't impacting your life negatively, then there is no reason you can't enjoy whatever the hell you want. I am a 26 year old man who loves all animated shows/movies. I legit am excited for new animated movies. I don't give an F owning that, I tell people with confidence anything like that. It took me a while to get there, but in the end I was like "why the hell am I ashamed to still be having fun, why do I need to grow up hobby wise and die bitter and old. If I want to be a kid with certain things at heart, then f it, I will"Why am I ashamed of the things I’m interested in? I’ll give you an example. The other day I felt the urge to want to play some old PS3 games, so I got a couple out of the closet and spent an hour or two replaying the game, but in the back of my mind the whole time I couldn’t shake the feeling that I am a total loser for sitting in my house and playing a video game. I guess my age has a bit to do with it. I mean, I am 38 now and I’m single and have virtually no romantic life to speak of at the moment, but it’s also not like all I do is sit home and play video games all the time either. I work a full time job, have a close circle of friends and try to do things when I can. This Saturday I’m going to a concert and tailgating beforehand, just as an example. Is it wrong to enjoy a hobby like that for a few hours once in a while? The thing is, i ALWAYS feel this way too. Just the other day I told this girl at work who I’m pretty good friends with that I saw the movie Shazam by myself. And she said why the hell would you go see that, you are a grown ass man? I told her well I wanted to see it. Is that wrong?
Am I an eternal man-child? I mean, I am have had long term romantic relationships before and have been on dates, I’ve just hit a dry spell and I felt like I needed some time to be alone and be comfortable being alone. I’m responsible in so called adult areas of life. I have been employed consistently for the last 12 years. My credit score is really high. My bills are paid. My car is fully paid off. I have a decent amount of savings. I do a good job at work. I have my own place... I’m not living in my parents basement playing video games all day, yet I do still feel very much like a kid at times. I don’t know
Obviously subjective, but Movies/Videogames are definitely more popular than when I was a kid. In fact fortnite absolutely dominates my nephews hobbies, he's always partied up with a ton of his friends.
You're not alone, fam. I can be a bit obsessed. This was a HUGE difficulty for me to admit at first. Now I'll openly talk about my love of tying chicks up, or how I let chicks piss on me in the bathtub and stuff. I like owning up to my kinks. Women find it enticing, more often than not.
Yeah! It's something that makes me scratch my head a lot. It's perfectly fine to watch Grey's Anatomy all day long but if I play videogames after work I am a loser? GTFO with that bullshit.I do have some guilt occasionally playing video games at home after work when kids are in bed... Like have I not something better to do??? But then some people binge watch series, my hobby is video games instead. But for some reason, watching series for hours is more socially acceptable.
Gotta surround yourself with people who share your same interests.No, I like what I like and do what I like. As long as no one is getting hurt then why should they care?
Edit: if anything, people hate my lack of interests. I don't care for tv/movies, sports, or celebrities, etc. Small talk with people can be really tough for me lol.
