Watching football with women can be difficult. I am not even going to sugarcoat that.
Of course, there are a few girls that love football. They are aware that Ajax Amsterdam won the UEFA Champions League in 1995 and that Sevilla won the Europa League thrice in a row. If you’re lucky enough to have a girl like that, do whatever you can to hold onto her. Kiss her and tell her you love her a thousand times daily.
But then there are girls that believe Ronaldo and Ronaldinho are the same person. If you’re one of the millions of dudes who’s girlfriend disapproves of your weekend pigskin obsession, don’t frown just yet. She’s probably willing to like watching football with you. You just need to pull on her heart strings a little bit and give her solid reasons by following these tips. Trust me, I have managed to successfully convert every woman I ever dated into a Chelsea fan.
1. Ask her to sit down and watch with you.
Trust me, the first step is to be authoritative. You have to make it clear that you would like her to watch with you because this is what you love. Other things can wait. You have to make her see that you are serious about wanting her to like football. If you don’t start here, you’ll get nowhere. Chances are your girlfriend has enough interests, plans and hobbies and isn’t necessarily looking for a new one. So you need to show her how much you want her to stride through this journey with you.
