What about giving up a woman for collecting?

You know, when a grown man starts filling his home and office with Star Wars toys, I think he knows that giving up women is just a risk that he's going to have to accept.

Only if she doesn't have internet access to see the answer to that question.   :P

I wouldn't give up anything for a woman :-X

(C'mon Tracy, surely you expected some dumbass to "comment" on that.  Besides Morgbug, I mean.  :P)

One of my least favorite things about watching the "40 year old virgin" was that I identified a little too closely with his gaming and collecting hobbies.  I found myself saying "Wow, I wish I had that" more than a few times about some of his toys.

Sorry Tracy, but I'm going to have to staunchly disagree with you on that one.  If not the only dumbass, definitely the biggest one - for sure.

(but FWIW, my dirty mind was all over that comment too!  :P)

Hey Matt, I was wondering when you were going to pop into this thread.

Your answer was going to be very interesting to me, considering one of our past potential trades.  ;D

I've "given up" collecting for a guy... sure, he's 5 years old, and he doesn't mind my occassional SW purchase- especially if he can play with it... but I think we all need to live within our means, whether it's a collection, a habit, a hobby, etc...
Collection is okay... obsession not really.  So, it all depends.  You know you don't want to be 'kissing' someone who is more focused on thinking where they might be able to find the new elusive figure... if you know what I mean... and if you REALLY know what I mean, please get help! ;)

Yes, I have a 5 year old son, but I think he's referring to another point in my post- the point about getting help if you are too focused on where to get the next figure than you are on the person you are with...

In a life or death situation, yeah, I'd give it up.  Afterall, my hobby is really just bits and pieces of plastic and cardboard. ;D

My wife doesn't like Star Wars and my collecting drives her nuts.  That said, she gets the time with me she needs and she understands that I've been a fan all my life and was collecting for years before she and I met.  She understands that it's just part of me.  She also knows that there are numerous other hobbies I could have that would be detrimental to our marriage.

When I spend money on my hobby, she usually will spend money on her hobby.  All in all, it evens out...but I do know my wife is tired of SW and thinks I'm a nerd for chatting on message boards. ;D

And what if the figure is ON the person I'm with AND I'm too focused?!
