Not a lot. He is athletic, rides horses, skis, plays video games, etc. I read, sew/do crafts, and talk to my family and go out with friends. We enjoy some of the same stuff of television and love trying new things together, but what we do that really brings us together is cook and eat. We try new recipes, try new resaturants, and love to spend dinner time together.

I’d say it’s 50/50.  We are both into computers and music and reading, but he’s a gamer and I love to craft.

We both love to cook and eat- we’ve both gained lots of weight since we got together!  We love travelling also, especially to places where we can eat more.  We are both obsessed with Malaysian food, oddly, since we’re both white generic Americans.  We like beer, too.  We are truly bad for each other, I think 🙂  We are bridge partners and we both like music and playing with the wii, and we both love cats.


He likes to play go and video games, which I am not that into.  I like to knit and read and craft.

Not too much, he’s athletic and I’m not.  I like reading, him not so much.  We both like video games, but I’m only good at the old Nintendo type games and he plays newer stuff like Xbox 360.  Hmm…I have to think more about this one & maybe ask him, lol.

Yes and no.

We’re both big readers and Scrabble/crossword puzzle nerds. 

I love movies, and so does he, but before we got together he didn’t really have anyone to go to see them with very often — so now we go to a movie, or watch one at home, almost every weekend. 

We’re both huge music geeks, but he’s a jazz lover and I’m a rocker chick, so we sometimes take each other to shows to try to broaden each other’s horizons. 

We’re both active in our own ways. He rides his bike absolutely everywhere, while I’m not brave enough to ride one in city traffic.  He loves to hike and camp, but I have yet to go with him to do so.  I go running or work out almost every day, him not so much. 

I also cannot stand to spend a whole day indoors. I have to go out, walk around, do something productive, every day, while he is fine to stay indoors for most of the weekend, unless the weather is really nice.

We are complete opposites. We both like playing scrabble, but beyond that we are so different! He plays hockey three nights a week and loves working on cars, while I love to blog and scrapbook. I think it comes down to me being more of a home-body and he is active. I like that we open each other up to new things though. We are always willing to compromise and try new things.

This is a great question.  My Fiance is a total hobby fanatic. He loves photography, writing, reading, and it working on learning to play the guitar.  His loves to tinker too.  He is currently getting a hot tub he bought off of a friend into working condition.

I’m not a huge hobby person, which drives him crazy! We’re planning on doing a lot of photography together though.  He bought me a new camera for our anniversary so we can.  We even have a wedding booked for this summer.

We also love to cook together.  Especially if it includes entertaining!  We have people over almost every weekend.

The FH and I enjoy spending time together. We try to make little day trips either to Laguna Beach, Pasadena, Los Angeles, Dog beach in Huntington Beach.

"Hobby" wise- I guess we have tried to include eachother in our own personal interests albeit photography, making incredible dinner’s/desserts, road cycling, going to concerts (classical music/jazz).

My Fiance and I joke that we are two peas in a pod.  We both love golf, skiing, being outside, watching sports, reading, and going out in the same doses.  We both love going to dinner and cooking too.  He likes to fish more than I do and I love to shop, which he hates.  He says he does not like the reality tv that I am obsessed with (though I catch him watching it too 🙂

My fiance and I both love to play on the computer. We like reading, going out to bars, trying new restaurants, and travel. I love to shop, he tolerates it. He loves computer games, they put me to sleep. I love movies, he gets bored.

Mr. D and i both really enjoy our laptops – we’re sitting next to each other on them now! We also enjoy traveling a bunch and try to go somewhere new every weekend – even if its a villiage a few miles away.

Snowboarding!  I got into it about 4 years ago and when we began dating, I introduce him to the mountains in Lake Tahoe and he was hook from then on.  He’s actually much much better than me now, because he does such extreme things that I would never have the nerve to do.

Besides from that, nothing else.  I love to read.  He hates it with a passion.  I love to craft, he thinks it’s a waste of time and money (until the wedding of course, because it actually helps with the wedding planning process.)

  • Wedding: September 2009 - City Hall

We love watching movies together, going on drives/trips, and taking photos together (we even have matching dSLRS, lol). We’re also both in to computers, though I’m more internet/graphics/social and he’s more programming/computer games/research. We enjoy playing some video games together, but he likes games a lot more than I do, I think.

We both wish we had more time to read. Our biggest "hobby" in common, if you can call it a hobby, is that we’re both full time students and full time employed as well. So in our "free time", you can find us sitting across the living room from each other, studying.
