Twitter aren't impressed with advice that this 13 Reasons Why actor gave on "how to win a guy's heart"

Women are sick of being told to take an interest in the hobbies of men.

DISNEY CHANNEL ACTOR Ross Butler, best known for his role as Zach in 13 Reasons Why, took part in an interview with Cosmopolitan at the beginning of April.

When the interview made it to the print edition of the magazine, people on Twitter began to pick up on some strange advice that Ross offered women. He said:

The way to a guy’s heart is through his hobbies. Find out what he’s passionate about, and if you really love him, get into it too. If I meet a girl who  can talk video games, guitar, cooking or good books, it’s a huge turn-on. And lots of guys like to teach, so if you can get hands-on with learning, I’m telling you,  you’ll get there.

The general reaction on Twitter was heavy usage of the side-eye emoji.

Some people began to argue why this is a pretty silly thing to say.

This might come as a surprise, but women often have hobbies because they’re interested in them, and not because they want to use them to impress men.

Some men said they’d be happy to get into women’s interests, however.

Ross Butler eventually tried to explain himself on Twitter by saying that “Sometimes, the circles just aren’t big enough to fit the whole picture.”
