No wonder I'm single; I'm a Disney dork

So I've been looking back over the past... umm.. year or so and wonder why I'm single. I've got this "obsession" with researching WDW from back in the begining. I've managed to read several books about how WDW was created and some insights to the early operation procedures and have MANY photos from the late 60's and on. I love my "hobby" and become uber excited when I come across a pic that I've never seen before or learn new info. I occasionally post vintage pics on my FB page and see who knows what the pic is missing or what the pic is of. ConcKahuna knows what I'm talking about. I live in Orlando so I go to the parks quite often. More often solo than with others.
With that said, my hobby seems to consume alot of my time. Granted I don't do much else so its not a big issue. Maybe I use my hobby as an escape from being single.
Whats the purpose of my posting you ask? I honestly don't know. Maybe I'm wondering if there are any others out there who shares a hobby similiar to mine. Or am I just truly odd? Who elese finds pics like the ones in these threads interesting?

You know, I know two beautiful "boys" one a player (but none the less beautiful) and one who just wants to love someone...

Not sure if they are into Disney though...

I also love Disney History and seeing old and new WDW pics. Hang in there and you'll meet someone!

No! You're single because you don't come out when people text you...

Just kidding

It's like which came first, the chicken or the egg. Are you single because your hobby takes up most of your time? Or do you spend so much time on your hobby? I'm sure you can find someone who shares your hobby.

I've been doing a lot of thinking this past week and have been asking myself why I'm single. For me it's worse, as I haven't had any luck even making friends here in Pittsburgh. Makes me wonder what's wrong with me?

I love looking at vintage pics, etc. even though my first trip was last summer.

And, I know what you mean as far as trying to find someone that shares your interests. *sigh*.

I say "boys" because they are quite young (at least from my perspective).

Oh I have about 200 pics that are from the late 60's, 70's, and 80's..... I think one of the fave things to do is when I find an old vintage pic, I take one now of that same area. So its like a then - and - now.

My boyfriend is pretty fascinated by my love for Disney, so I guess I lucked out. Although...I'm working hard to convince him that "The World of Color" isn't "just a light and water show."

You'll find someone!
