Let's just say you'll learn new things about yourself...and your significant other

I grew up playing, watching and obsessing over football. As the world’s greatest sport, how could you not love it?!

It’s full of excitement, surprises, chaos, competition, passion and so much more. It’s never too late to join the wonderful world of football. And, who knows, maybe one day you’ll meet someone who lives, eats and breathes football. After all, there are so many reasons for girls to date soccer players and even more reasons for guys to date girls who play soccer. That's where we come in. We can help educate you.

Let’s say you find yourself dating a football fan, a die-hard football fan. Here’s a list of things you can expect. 

You will quickly find out which team they support

It will probably be one of the first things you find out.

They will demand to watch every game

In fact, they will watch every single game. Always.

If they watch, you watch...even though you might not understand all the rules

Relationships are all about compromise.


You will finally see your significant other in his or her natural habitat

You will see the good, the bad and the ugly.

You will also witness how loud they can get

Sometimes it's necessary to scream at the top of your lungs. 

At some point, they will ask you to wear a jersey and rep their team

You've never looked better.

They won’t notice if you don’t pay attention, as long as you look up during the important moments

You should probably look up every two minutes just to be safe.

You will hear them ROAR whenever the referee makes a bad call

Do not panic. 

If they're about to explode with anger, we recommend agreeing with them until they calm down

Just go with it.

They will love you even more if you celebrate with them



Screw it, just go all out and paint your face

Go big or go home. 

They will appreciate the little comments you make, even if they make no sense

"A" for effort.

Just try to avoid talking about how attractive the players are

You might be speechless anyways.

If you seriously know nothing about the game, then good luck with the "offside" rule

One day you'll learn. Until then, just don't call it "offsides."

You can resort to movies like "Bend It Like Beckham" and "She’s The Man" for soccer lingo and advice

The best type of studying.

If you are lucky and they invite you to a game, DO NOT say no

Your dreams are about to come true.

Being a fan might help you release some of that built up anger



You will have to deal with the ups and downs of a game…and the many emotions of your S.O.

The many, many, many, many, many emotions.

You will soon realize how football dominates the weekend

"Babe, it's gameday!"

Your S.O. will not miss a game, even if that means waking up at the crack of dawn or tuning in at midnight

Morning brews? Midnight brews? Same thing.

If the timing is off and they miss a game, your S.O. will be glued to his or her phone checking the latest updates

There's an app for that.

You will feel the passion and understand why football is the most popular sport in the world

Join the fun! Come one, come all.

You will start following a team and defending them

There's never a dull moment.

You will get to know the local fans

The more the merrier.

Welcome to the wonderful world of football, join the chaos!

You won't regret it.
