Relationships are not easy, whatever your hobbies. Just because the guys that my husband work with think that it is hot that I’m into motorcycles, it doesn’t actually mean I would have any interest in them if I was single.
But I have come to the conclusion after watching some of my single friends angst over the years about not being able to get a date that part of the problem is that they don’t get out. The other part of the problem is that they are looking for “Mr. Perfect”, not “Mr. I’m-willing-to-let-him-see-me-in-my-flannel-PJs-and-bunny-slippers” or “Mr. I-wouldn’t-mind-talking-to-him-everyday-for-the-rest-of-my-life”. For the first part, they need to get out and meet people while doing things they love. Riding motorcycles and joining a riding club or just talking bikes with random guys at the grocery store will accomplish that. For the second part, you just have to realize that even if you do find a Mr. Perfect, at some point you are going to realize that he isn’t and will have to be able to accept it. It is much easier to start figuring out that & accepting Mr. Perfect from the first date than after you’ve tied the knot. Divorce may be an option, but the costs far exceed whatever the attorney may charge.
This is all the conjecture of a generally-happily married woman, so take it with a grain of salt.
