Bad news for Trekkies.

How we spend our free time says a lot about us — especially when your hobby is as. .. unique as some of these dealbreakers. Read on to find out what these 8 ladies had to say about what they just won't stand for when it comes to their man's hobbies.

1. Stuffing dead animals
"I only have one hobby related dealbreaker: taxidermy. I don't mind if he hunts, just don't put the kill in display at the house." -McCollonough, 27

2. Extreme Video Gamers
"I hate video games. If you play every once in a while it's no big deal, but if you play every day or regularly then forget it. I want to date a man, not a 15-year-old high school student. Video games should be reserved for kids, not men. If you have time to play video games, then you have time to find a more mature (and maybe productive) hobby." -Nicole, 25

3. Trekkies
"If the guy is at all into Star Trek, especially if he goes to conventions, I'm sorry, but that's the opposite of sexy and a HUGE dealbreaker for me. I don't think I could take him seriously ever again if I saw him in Spock ears." -Joanna, 30

4. Bizarre Competitions
"I lost interest in a guy who spent his Saturdays attending midget jelly wrestling competitions." -Vicky, 35

5. Gamblers
"Gambling. Anyone who thinks it's a fun past time to throw money around and hope for the best is too irresponsible for me to date." -Jessica, 32

6. Gun Collectors
"I once dated a guy who had an extensive gun collection, which he referred to as his 'babies.' He named each one of them after a woman. It was all too serial killer for me." -Sandy, 20

7. Car Obsessions
"Listen, I get it. Guys like cars. That's totally fine. But if we literally cannot go anywhere without him commenting on a car in every parking lot, it's too much for me." -Dana, 29

8. Sports Fanatics
"I understand and fully accept that a guy's favorite sports team is important to him. However, when he starts doing asinine things like painting his entire body in team colors, standing in the freezing cold during football season to cheer them on, and then expecting me to take care of him after he catches a nasty cold, I'm not interested." -Susan, 34
