Do you have a hobby?

So I have started talking to this guy off a dating site and he keeps asking me what I do for a hobby. I am a single mom that works full-time and I homeschool. I have a lot of things I like to do but I would not really call them a hobby because I don't get to do them enough. I gave him the list of riding a motorcycle, movies, reading, writing (sometimes), cross stitch, going to amusement parks, and working on computers but I don't spend enough time on any one thing to call it a hobby. I just don't have enough free time to have a hobby. This doesn't seem to be a satisfactory answer for him because he keeps asking like he doesn't believe I don't have a hobby. Am I strange because I don't have one set hobby? Do you have a hobby? If you do ?what is it, why did you choose it, how do you find time to do it, and how often do you do it?

I don't have a hobby.  It is not weird if you don't have a hobby. 

Maybe it's strange if he continues to ask about it.

Unfortunately no but I'm looking for one. I do like to read.

I craft (scrapbook, crochet, sew, make jewelry, hair bows, etc.)

A lot of people don't have time to do the things they enjoy, that doesn't mean that those things aren't still your hobbies.

 Baking, knitting, various crafts and reading.  I think it's more strange that he keeps bringing it up myself.

i crochet.  i do it while watching tv at night after the kids go to bed.  i probably spend 1-2 hours per day doing it.  

and, no, i don't think it's weird that you don't have an every day hobby.  until i started crocheting a year ago, i never really had a hobby either.

 I bake and make candy. That's my hobby. It's more of a seasonal hobby though. This spring and summer I plan on digging up my yard and making a garden though. I NEED to grow some veggies this summer.

....do those count? lol I've never thought about my hobbies as an adult before now that I'm thinking about it

Is running considered a hobby?

If so, that's my hobby. I start training for my half marathon on Monday!
