    Hobbies you are devout in that none of your friends are?

    As it says really. Any hobbies, interests you are into with a passion or great extent that none of your "main" friends are? I know for a fact that I have quite a few, and frequently struggle with this fact.

    • Space Opera
    • Hard Science Fiction
    • Inventing
    • Texas Hold'em Poker
    • Poker
    • Blackjack
    • Statistical Analysis
    • Live Action Movies
    • Avant Garde Films
    • Educational Television
    • Sensory-based Martial Arts
    • Speed Reading (650WPM+)

    Among many others really. Some NSFW but I'm not sharing those.  Razz .

    I don't think I have a hobby that I don't share with ANY of my friends, but I do have very few friends that watch as much anime as I do.

    Speaking of Speed Reading, there's a couple of guys at my English class who were doing this training.

    The girl could read 1500 WPM. Sure, her understanding rate wasn't the best, but I was really surprised by it.

    Pathfinder is awesome. Pretty sure none of my irl friends share my love for animu/manga/cardgames/vidya but owell. There life and If they ever got into it, that'd be neat.

    I need to learn Pathfinder/D&D but second hand show and tell tells me that those groups tend to be drama laden. That one cannot understand so I currently stay away.

    I just have a bunch of different groups that I hang out with. I usually can talk to my friends about anything I do even if they have never done it, and still have a more than half decent conversation about it. There really isn't anything that my friends don't know about me or what I do, happily enough. There are plenty of things I do that I do with other friends, but the different groups I hang out with usually know that anyways and let it go.

    Of course my best friends and I share almost everything we do together bar a few things that we become very devout it. I have a best friend who is into video making. I shared this, but I am not as into it as he is, and I see him going for me with it than I could ever. I have another friend who takes his engineering to a whole new world than I even have knowledge of, but that doesn't stop me from learning about it and having some knowledge that helps me learn about what he does. I usually take my dancing and computer programming to different places that those friends don't.

    While, I have a diverse group of friends, it doesn't really stop me from sharing what I do with them since I don't worry about judgment from them as much. And it is always fun learning more about what they want to do even if I don't care about becoming an Einstein in those topics or ideas.

    Well, that depends on the people you play with. The rest of my  group is in the category of "See Monsters, Kill Monsters, Get Loot" no drama about it Smile
