Default Ladies, what would you think of a man if he told you dating sex was a "passtime/hobby?"

I know for a fact that girls tend to like guys when he gives off an aura of competition; if he has a lot of girls going for him as well, or atleast seems like he does.

I've always wanted to experiment with saying something really outrageous, but casually and off handedly, to a girl's face and see how she'd respond. I remember back in college, I posted a facebook status update where I said, "when a girl says she's NOT going to have sex with you tonight, it's just a test to see if you'll stick around. I know how you ladies think," and several girls clicked the "like" button.

I also had a female friend in college who I had hooked up with even after I had told her (and in some instances brazenly bragged to her) about other girls I had hooked up with.

So I was wondering, if I was casually talking to a girl, and we got to the "what do you do in your free time/what are your hobbies?" conversation, what would she think if I just casually, nonchalantly said sex and dating was a casual passtime, as if it were not a big deal? Would that pique her curiosity in getting to know me?

If he said "passtime" to me, I'd think he was some backwoods hillbilly. The term is "pasttime".

I don't know. Maybe if you say because your goal is to be really really good at it...

OP, not being a woman, i can't really speak for them, but think of your target market.
i'd suspect you may get women who are attracted to your spare time pursuit, but they'll be a certain type of women probably.

if you want a decent girl, then stick to normal hobbies.

I'd refer him to A&E for an "intervention" regarding his sex addiction.

I'd run like hell too. Not my type that's for sure. Never cared much about a man who sleeps with every woman he meets. Nah, I'll pass. Sorry.

I think this comment would be a tun off to nice women, but a come on to the other type. Advertising that you're a player invites the "less clean" to come play.

Not me. I'd think you were a narcissist and I'd get up and leave.
