The football season is here, and just like when Diablo 3 was released, you find your boyfriend choosing a screen over you. If you’re not a football fan, you’d probably feel extremely irritated with his sudden change of behaviour. Some girls even go to the extend of breaking up with their partners during football season because the arguments of ‘Why are you addicted to football?’ or ‘You don’t care about me anymore, only about some stupid ball!’ appear to be unbearable.
If you’re thinking of breaking up with him or creating an argument, here are top three reasons why you shouldn’t. Really.
Reason 1 : It doesn’t happen every month
Major football events like the EURO doesn’t happen every month, and count your blessings that it’s also not a continuous series of matches – the rest of the year he is all yours. Think of it this way: You’re addicted to New Girl or Desperate Housewives, he’s addicted to watching the EURO.
Reason 2 : Allow him to indulge in his favourite pastime
Everyone has their own way of releasing stress. Instead of making a big fuss about him watching a football match, look at it from a different angle. Give yourself some time off and find other things to do. For instance, maybe have a great ladies night out with your friends.
Reason 3: You love him, football doesn’t!
Don’t worry ladies, it’s quite normal for every guy to go around and tell their friends that “football comes first in my life.” Always remember that it’s just his hobby/interest. Just like the way we love shopping, guys love to watch a game, support their team and gloat if they got their predictions right. Come to think of it, do you think it’s logical to break up or to get angry just because he loves his hobby? At the end of the day, he’ll come crawling back to you for some ‘TLC’ because a TV screen won’t be able to console him when his team loses.
