10 reasons why you should date a female football fan
- Here's our list of the top 10 reasons why you shouldn't say NO to dating a football fan.
Date a girl who reads, date a girl who cooks well, date a girl who…. Meh! Why settle for just anyone if you can find someone who’s as crazy about football as you? Women can be crazy football fans, and there plenty of positive reasons to date them.
Here’s our list of the top 10 reasons why you shouldn’t say NO to dating a football fan:
10. Football over the weekend? Late-night kickoff? She’s always game!
Your body clocks are always in sync if there’s a late night kickoff. You won’t need to plan out your weekend every single time. Football takes care of all that. Just remember to order pizza, get some beer, and you shall have a brilliant weekend (Well, if your team loses, then maybe not!)
9. Let’s watch highlights on SportsCenter together!
You saw the match live, even saw the goals on YouTube the next day. But there are highlights coming on SportsCenter, and she seems more excited than you to see her team score and win. Sigh.
8. Understands and relates to mood swings
When your team wins, she’s celebrates with you. Downing beers and abusing the crap out of the opposite team. And when your team loses, and you feel like shutting yourself away from the rest of the world, no one understands what you’re going through better than her.
7. Football jerseys – Best. Gifts. Ever.
Gift her a football jersey (doesn’t matter whether it’s original or fake) and watch her face light up like a 100 watt bulb. Even better if it has the name and number of her favourite footballer at the back.
6. She respects the transfer window
Trust me, this is important. You wouldn’t want your girlfriend to just walk out on you randomly. If she follows football, she’ll definitely respect the transfer window. However, you’ve got to be on high alert during the months of December, January, June, July and August. That’s it.
5. Two warnings, and then a RED CARD
Take the hint. She’ll get mad, like really mad at you twice. And then, you’re doomed. Don’t make the same three times in a row. Don’t foul her or play with her emotions. You wouldn’t want to get sent off. Not a good idea.
4. ‘P.S. I love you’ means something totally different!
SHE CAN BEAT YOU AT FIFA/PES!
You hate it when your friends do that, but when your girlfriend does it, in front of all your friends, you are so proud of her.
3. You always have football to talk about
There’s no football on TV, and you’re too bored to watch a movie. Strike up a conversation about a Champions League game or any game, and you won’t realise how a couple of hours go by. Football talk is an ice-breaker, no matter who brings it up.
2. Your most common fantasy is about the Premier League
If you dream about that Beckham free kick, she’s definitely dreaming about that Henry goal too. Both of you want to go watch a match live together, and both of you eat, sleep and drink football.
1. She won’t hesitate to kick your ass
Abuse her team or a player she likes, or worse still, get your facts wrong, and she won’t hesitate to kick your ass, no matter where you are. A female football fan is one woman you would never want to cross. Her good books are always the right place to be!Published 08 Mar 2014, 17:46 IST
