ALl I can say is "Get used to it". If you find a lady friend that doesn't feel like the time you spend with your car/computer/anything-but-her would be better spent with her, you'll be a lucky, lucky man....

From a woman'* perspective- get her interested. She should be willing to share your hobbies and vice versa. It'* called compromise. Or you plan to work on the car while she is out with her friends shopping, etc. That way you both are happy. Set aside some time for yourselves to be together and it should work out. There are those selfish girls that only think of themselves and only want they want- beware of them, they will make you miserable.

When I was married the 1st time, I wanted to spend time with my husband who was a sports fanatic so I took up watching football. Now that I'm on my own I still love to watch football. But I was willing to learn about that so that I could spend time with him.

Don't try to change her thinking to like it. If you aren't compatible to begin with, and you try to change yourself or her to be compatible, you will fail.

She either accepts it or she doesn't. Dump the girl, get another car. It'll be cheaper in the long run.

Tracy, Pmom, and PJ, this is NOT an open invitation for a beating or public humiliation).

Awww....come on!!! :P

In all seriousness, he speaks the truth. You can't change yourself, don't try-it'* not worth it. Some girls will understand that your car (or any other hobby, albeit not a illegal or gross hobby) is part of who you are and the person that they are with. I'm not saying if she doesn't understand, dump her-but just think about how if the girl doesn't value what you value, there'* going to be issues.

On another note, I can't stand other girls who want their bfs to have no other life besides them. Silly girls!

I agree with Tracy, she is so right. Sure some women like it when their significant others spend all their waking hours with them, but that is just not possible....You each need your space and you need to have time away from each other, it makes it all the more special when you are together.
