If you are trying to make sure that you keep your guy card in good standing, it can be helpful to pick up the occasional hobby. One that allows your inner manliness to flourish, while possibly even improving your attractiveness as well. Because everyone wants to be attractive.
Read on for a list of hobbies that will enhance your masculinity, and your appearance.
There is something about hiking that is inherently masculine. No offense to our lady hikers out there. But the physical rigor, the communion between man and nature, the need to live in response to your environment—it all creates a quality of masculinity that few other hobbies can match.
The nice thing is that it will also improve your physique. Hiking is hard work that can test every single one of your muscles. If you want to have fun while building up your bod, this is a great way to do it.
A good hiking experience will let your masculinity flourish, while whipping tightening those muscles.
Woodworking is another hobby that is just undeniably masculine. The saws, the materials, the loud, loud noises. Every bit of the process screams masculinity.
Woodworking is a satisfying hobby that will provide many hours’ worth of entertainment to the dedicated wood worker.
Will it get you into fighting shape? Nope. But remember that there is more than one way to be attractive. There is something quite tantalizing about a person who can create using their two hands and a few tools.
The ability to build your own furniture is impressive enough to make you very attractive indeed. Plus it will give the décor in your bachelor pad a unique touch.
As a matter of fact, all forms of handiness are pretty becoming. What’s sexier than a man that knows how to make good use out of an impact wrench?
Boxing is a hobby that won’t be for everyone. The sweat, the blood…the tears, are all products of a hobby that demands a lot from its participants.
Amateur boxers really love what they do. There is something cathartic about the immediacy of the situation, and high risk, high reward scenario that is involved in every match.
And it isn’t all about being a meat head either. It’s a game of strategy as much as it is force.
Boxing certainly won’t be for everyone, but it certainly will up your male street cred, and it will also get your body into good shape.
Fishing is another fun way to get in touch with nature. Lots of quiet, lots of waiting. There is a peacefulness to it that few other hobbies can replicate. It’s also historically a masculine and male dominated past time.
So how is fishing going to make you more attractive? Certainly not by the scales and fish gut remnants.
But fish a fish diet is low fat and rich in protein. It will help you lose those last few pounds, or at least counter act all the beer you drink on your boat.
There are lots of hobbies out there that as good for your physique as they are for your male ego. So remember the next time you feel the itch to go hiking: it’s not just for yourself. Ladies everywhere will thank you.
