I'm a sports lover. I watch ALMOST every sport there is and love going to an occasional game whenever my pockets permit it. On any given day you could find me in a sports bar during the NBA finals, or glued to the television when my Yankees are playing -- and don't even THINK about calling me for anything when Monday Night Football is on. Yes, it's that serious!
With the passion and excitement I have for men in team uniforms, I sometimes find myself looking for a guy who loves sports as much as I do. You would think that'll be easy right? WRONG! You'd be surprised how many men actually don't like sports. I wouldn't have believed it if I haven't witnessed a few for myself.
But should that hinder your decision on whether to progress?
Hmmm...it shouldn't, but it has. Not solely based on being a sports fanatics, but having things in common, period. And when that's the case, you often find yourself grasping at straws. Then, the little things become the ultimate factor in reasons to move on.
It's funny, this is usually a guy's conversation. But, I blame my brother. There are some women that have a need for some fun competition and rowdy conversation. Defending your favorite team in a relationship is not only a bonding experience, but an ultimate turn-on as well. I have friends who don't even like sports, trying to learn plays because they know their man will LOVE it! I have an ex who would look at me and laugh when I got mad, because he was stuck on a movie channel too long, when my Giants were playing.
I know choosing whether or not to date someone is often determined by many factors you take into consideration. But has your lack of common likes or hobbies ever been one of them that caused it to be a deal breaker?
