So many times, I find myself entangled in football related arguments with ladies. And the more I argue with them on the benefits of football, the more I realize why I might probably wed when am 45.
Why? This is because it always gives me reasons why I should either avoid dating or avoid ladies who think time spent watching football as a waste of precious time.
Honestly, I can’t live without football and yes I know I won’t marry that small leather ball.
So in regards to that, I decided to highlight five concrete reasons why you should avoid a diehard football fan.
- COLD NIGHTS
Dear ladies, it is as simple as 1,2,3. Just the way you can stay up all night keeping up with the Kardashians, that’s pretty close to how much sleep we can sacrifice to make sure we don’t miss a piece of football action.
So when am out there with the boys enjoying some Real Madrid vs Juventus match, you better look for my football socks and two pillows because the night will be extra cold.
Basically, this would pop-up at every point but thing is, if we are dating and we had planned to go skydiving, ziplining or even visit my in-laws on a certain Saturday, which I thought there would be no football action, then all of a sudden, a football fixture pops up on that same date, there is no way I am missing the game. Sorry.
Ladies love attention. In fact, it’s more of a basic need especially in relationships and this is where football always wins.
Apart from sneaking out of the bed at night to watch a game, we at times would love to invite you or probably say yes to your proposal of accompanying us to the game. Question is: Would you still get mad when my eyes will be fixed on the Television screen instead of your beautiful brown eyes?
A loyal football fan would be like:
“I mean c’mon it’s 90 minutes only, after that I’m all yours babe.”
Another major reason why you should avoid a staunch football fan like the plague is the probability of the guy being involved in arguments which later result in violence.
This mostly happens during football derbies, for example; Arsenal vs Chelsea, Manchester City vs Manchester United where both sections of opposing fans normally engage in banter which become heated at times.
We all know what these could lead to and you would not want to turn into his nurse or his shield when beer bottles start flying in the club.
5. EMOTIONALLY UNSTABLE
This acts as a cover that joins the other four points.
Your bae will never be happy around you for a couple of hours if not a week when his favorite team gets a huge beating on a Sunday night, after the two of you spent the afternoon all cuddled up.
One defeat won’t hurt as much, till it becomes a habit where Arsenal go for six games without registering a win and that would mean six weeks of a moody boyfriend, which will definitely hurt your relationship.
