50 Things We Hate to Love

Are you a happy addict?

While creating this article I came to the conclusion that I'm a happy addict. Most of the things we hate to love are addictive. They are also considered guilty pleasures. We love them, yet hate them. It's an ongoing battle within ourselves.

For one reason or another we continue to love these guilty pleasures even though they might not be healthy for us. They could be endangering our lives or other lives. These addictions could also be harmless or mere entertainment. They could also occupy our time, when we could be using that time more constructively.

In a nutshell it all depends on you and the things you hate to love.

I asked a few friends, family and random social network contacts to tell me what things they hate to love. They were more then willing to share. All names will be kept confidential to protect the innocent, or not so innocent.

You, as the reader might see yourself in one, or possibly more of these things. Maybe you haven't thought about your guilty pleasures until now. Maybe you could do something to change your lifestyle, or maybe not. Some of us enjoy our addictions. We are considered happy addicts. Some of us aren't. The ball is in your court.

I now give you 50 things we hate to love...

Some things we hate to love...

  1. Celebrity drama. The media just won't let it go. Sure it's interesting for a day or two, but no longer than that. Just let it go!
  2. Work. Some of us tend to be workaholics.
  3. Winning. Being overly competitive isn't all that.
  4. Football. Even though being a couch potato and watching football all weekend is fun, getting some exercise, some sunshine and family time could be more satisfying.
  5. Pet Stores. Seeing the animals caged up in their own mess is quite sad.
  6. Fresh garlic cloves and then attempting to carry on a conversation.
  7. Law & Order TV Marathons. Oh, how addicting these shows are.
  8. Country Music. Many people won't admit it, but they listen to country songs in private.
  9. Facebook. Yet, another addiction we "like."
  10. Late night snacks and finding crumbs in your bed.
  11. Alcohol. Mixed Drinks. Beer. Wine.
  12. Spending over budget for Christmas presents.
  13. N'Sync and Britney Spears.
  14. Pornography. Adult material.
  15. Expensive purses and shoes that are out of our budget, yet you purchase them anyway.

More things we hate to love...

16. Ex's. Ex-wife. Ex-husband. Ex-boyfriend. Ex-girlfriend. Etc...

17. Pinterest and hours of pinning interesting pins to our boards.

18. Gossip. If someone gossips to you, chances are they are gossiping about you. Nix the gossip.

19. Eating meat. The dark meat, white meat and the other white meat.

20. Being fake. Fake nails, hair, boobs ... everything fake falls into this catergory.

21. My best friends girlfriend. Now, that could be a problem.

22. Reality TV Shows of all sorts. Jersey Shore, for real? Does anyone really watch that?

23. One night stands and not remembering their name the next morning. Or you hope they don't remember you.

24. Swear words. Yet, they are beneficial to our health.

25. Chocolate. Any way, shape or form.

26. Texting. Especially while driving. Risk takers need to pull over to text or get pulled over.

27. Nancy Grace. Even though she might annoy us, we continue to watch. Why?

28. Infomercials. They are so lame, yet insomniacs still watch them and probably make purchases!

29. HubPages and all the entire hubbing community.

30. Tabloids. Rag Mags. We are drawn to the headlines like a dog to a bone. We want to know the latest, juiciest celebrity gossip.

31. Girl Scout Cookies. Those sweet girls pushing those yummy treats, we fall in the trap each time. It's an ongoing yearly process. Will we ever "Just say no?" Probably not.

32. Cigarettes. Yes, they are supposedly bad for us, but smoking is still a personal choice.

33. Online games. Farmville. Cityville. Zynga. Slingo. Words With Friends. Etc...

34. Burping, farting and picking the nose. I figured I would lump these together, since most people do them, we would just rather not witness someone else doing them.

35. Gambling. Slots. Scratch-offs. Lotto. Poker. Etc...

Just a few more things we hate to love...

36. Money. The root of all evil, but we need money to survive. Some people will go to extremes for money. Money could destroy people.

37. Drugs. Whether legal or illegal. Drug dealers.

38. Bad relationships. Loving the person who is wrong for you.

39. Favorite sports teams that continue to disappoint, but we still love them.

40. Excessive tattoos. Tats are addicting.

41. Karaoke. If we could really hear what we sound like, we might put a halt to this method of entertaining ourselves.

42. Caffeine. Any way, shape or form.

43. Road trips. With kids. If only cars could fly.

44. Fast food. Junk food. Munchies.

45. That certain song that gets stuck in your head.

46. Mobile phones and all of their awesome apps.

47. NASCAR. Round and round and round they go. Where they end up, no one really knows.

48. eBay and it's many daily deals.

49. Whining and whiners. We all do it. We all hear it. We all deal with it.

50. Getting old...and older...and older...but, so much better.

This rounds up my list. Feel free to add the things that you hate to love in the comment section below. I guarantee there are many, many more. I look forward to hearing about your guilty pleasures or addictions or both. They are what they are. You are who you are. This is what makes us unique individuals. As long as you aren't hurting anyone in the process it's all good. Or bad. You either hate it, or love it. Keep on shining!

Loved your list Linda, #9 is my husband's first and foremost. He truly can't stand FB for some reason now and tells me all the time how can I stay on there, but for some reason I just can't get enough of it, lol! Guess it can be a bit addictive at times, but still can't help it. Anyway, enjoyed this one and have voted and shared too!!

Any of those related to television don't affect me, thankfully! I don't even know who Nancy Grace is. :) Great list and yes, I can relate to many of them.

Every last thing you listed is TRULY something we HATE to love.....and all of it....sooooo REAL and close to home. I had to nod in agreement for one too many of these.

I am smiling, applauding and about to send this out to my email buddies.....and print it up for everyone I know......This IS a winner. My guess is a HUB OF THE DAY and soon enough...another 100% hub for you. G R E A T Effin JOB! Love, Effer

Awesome video at the end! I love that song :)! #13 is an essential part of my childhood and I don't think I have to justify that to anyone. #7 is how alot of us get through the weekend.

#18 I agree with wholeheartedly I think if you want to talk about someone in a way that isn't about improving or changing the relationship for the better, then you should be quiet.

#27 I avoid like the plague- she takes tacky television to a whole other level!

#29 is nothing I hate to love- I embrace it wholeheartedly.

Great hub!

Janine, At least your guilty pleasure is not harmful to your health. Well most times it's not. Stress could be though. Keep on hubbin'! :)

Hey Bill, consider yourself lucky that you don't know who Nancy Grace is. Her screechy voice and know-it-all 'tude would annoy you.

Thanks for your comments!

Thank you Effer and Rich! Were you two flirting on my hub? I sensed it and thought that was too cool. Two of my fav hubbers flirting. Don't you hate to love flirting? Me neither. Flirting is fun! Thank you both for your awesome comments. I appreciate them! :)

Sunshine625 4 years ago from Orlando, FL Author

Alecia, I like your choices and reasonings. How could I not use Rihanna's video, it was a perfect match to this video. I thought of you and Docmo when I selected it! My daughter and SIL choose Britney and N'Sync while they were watching old music videos of theirs. It was a fun blast from the past!


Sunshine625 profile image

Sunshine625 4 years ago from Orlando, FL Author

Thanks Julie. Yep, Nancy Grace is a hate to love thing.

Hey Docmo! Ne-Yo was a must as I told Alecia. A perfect match.

Thanks for your comments!

Thank you for adding Jersey Shore to the list. Yes, people do watch that show... and by "people," I mean me. :-) I can't stop it. It is such a guilty pleasure. I just need to know if Sammi and Ronnie are together and if the Situation is being nice to Snooki again. I need help!

Cool hub and voted up! :-)

"Late night snacks and finding crumbs in your bed" and "NASCAR. Round and round and round they go. Where they end up, no one really knows" were my favorites totally! And I totally hate when I eat a snack late at night after I've already brushed my teeth and have a mental debate with myself...to re-brush or not to re-brush. Thanks for the fun hub, Sunshine :)

I can totally relate with about 49 of them. Pinterest (my newest guilty obsession) is deifnitily something I hate to love. Simply because in my eyes it's a useless waste of time but my goodness is it fun. The Ex's - yep HATE to love them but always will....etc. Did you write this hub about me?

Voted interesting.

Sunshine625 4 years ago from Orlando, FL Author

Hi Julie, Nancy Grace is on HLN (Headline News) the sister station of CNN. If you followed the Casey Anthony case or any legal media case then you've seen Nancy. She's not easy to forget.

The Jersey Shore??? Julie! Your daughter! Oh my.

Linda, this hub containing 50 things we hate to love is another proof of your ability to THINK deep and objectively. You are a master in this - take a bow from me.

Another thing I hate to love - did I miss it in your list? - is 'the limelight'. We hate attention, and yet we need it and is in fact addicted to it. I also hate to love, because love is a drug we crave. The withdrawal symptoms are terribly painful.

Voted up and extremely thought-provoking.

Excellent list of 50 things we hate to love.....luckily I do not have to worry about many of the things you mention.....as no more one night stands, tobacco, caffeine or excessive tattoos.....but ones I need to stop loving would be fast food, NASCAR, and expensive shoes and purses....at least shielding my wife from expensive shoes and purses....interesting hub with lots of interesting items...thanks for sharing . Voted up and awesome.

This is a great list! I totally agree with the pet shop one- I used to go in them to look at all the cute puppies and kittens, but I don't anymore (particularly the ones that just don't seem to care at all about the animals and keep them in filthy conditions) because it just leaves me feeling angry and sad.

But I am definitely a Girl Scout cookie addict- the Tagalongs are my all-time favorite. YUM!

Voted up, funny and awesome.

You got me chuckling at these guilty pleasures. We all got 'em. It's true. I found myself watching the new Dallas TV show. I hated that show with a vengeance first time around in the 80's or whenever it was. How sad I actually wanted to see what Bobby Ewing was up to now. LOL

Levertis Steele profile image

Levertis Steele 4 years ago from Southern Clime

Now that you have forced this down my throat, I hate to love reading and snickering about what I hate to love. Wow! You are on to something here. I loved this truth. "Sometimes truth hurts"? Embarrasses? Causes discomforts? Well!

Years ago I found a pornographic magazine above our medicine cabinet and reasoned that my husband had hidden it there because our children were very young. I looked through it in disgust just to see the filthy poison that he was ingesting. I carefully swept every page ONLY to make sure that I had enough information to confront him informatively. :D

I love to ponder unique subjects. Thanks for sharing!

This one gets a big vote up, useful, funny, awesome, and interesting.

Hi Linda, you did a great hub! congrats.. :)

sometimes, it depends on who you're loving...if you love someone who doesn't love you, then...its a tragedy! you'll be trying to impress them and constantly talking about them, and deep, deep down...yeah DOWN, deep inside, you'll be heartbroken because you know that they don't love you.

Sooooooo PAINFUL.

Great list again!! but you left out 2 of mine..

1) I love shopping at thrift stores and yard sales! You never know what treasures you can find at a cheap price!

2) watching old tv shows on sites like Hulu.com or on some of the tv networks that specialize in that like tvLand or Mytv. Really brings back the memories!

rating this a thumbs up all around!

Numbers - 2, 10, 12, 15, 17, 25, 29, 36, 38, 45, 48 and 50!

...and here are my own - 1. Shark Tank TV ( absolutely addicted)

2. Greasy fried tacos.

3. My hub score (drives me nuts.)

What a joy to participate in your terrific hub. Never know what to expect from you. Love that! Huge thumbs up and a hug.

You are such pleasure always to read......and I love to love that sure

(no pun intended and I am honest here ....LOL). Very enriching and extensive list dear.....I really hate that I love to indulge in work ....any kind of writing and reading...often tend to loss the sense of time LOL. Another true confession is I hate the fact that I am a addict of your no 15 ...purses and shoes yeah .....LOL.

Then you have me got stuck in your no 1, 3,4,5, 16, 18, 20, 22, 25, 26, 34, 38, 40, 49 ......yeah its quite a list here.

Some of my hate to love things are hypocrites, freaky haircuts and hair colored guys, rash bikers, traffic snarls etc.

Thank you for sharing this one and i am sharing too. Votes all ++++++

Well...heck, Linda Sue.......I still hate to love the things I hated to love, 8 months ago.......and now there are 50 more things I hate to love. I'm up to 100 things I hate to love..........Jeesh, at this rate, I could go on forever!

and you know what? I hate it, that we always admit that we hate to love things, because then, people expect to hear about all the things we hate to love.....to be sure that there isn't much we love to hate...because that is not a good thing!

Oh, I had to read this again, and now I know I am going from bad to worse, now hating to love MORE on this list as the last time I've checked...

Oh well, let me just get some more chocolate and a fag, and my tablet with all its awesome applications, and maybe, yes, why not, some popcorn and porn :))))
