As die-hard hockey fans, or even those who may not be quite as addicted as others, we know how difficult it can be to balance a personal life and relationships during hockey season; especially if your special someone isn’t quite as much of a hockey fan as you are. Maybe you are the special someone of a die-hard hockey fan and find yourself unsure of certain things. Have a little look at this, and maybe share it with your friends. You may find that things aren’t what you thought they were and you may find yourself closer to someone than you thought. Let us know what you think!
We all know what it’s like to be friends with those die-hard sports fans that seem to love their team more than they love life itself. But what do you do when that crazy, die-hard fan is the guy, or girl, that you’re dating? Here are a few tips of mine on dating a die-hard hockey fan.
First off, understand that their team will always come first to them. Most die-hard fans have followed their team for years, if not for their entire life. Following their hockey team is similar to a girl following Pretty Little Liars or a guy being obsessed with Call Of Duty. In dating a hockey fan, this is one of the FIRST things you need to understand: their team comes first.
Teams won’t always win, this is important to know. Hockey isn’t like football where teams can go entire seasons without losing. In hockey, there are over 80 games each season. It’s important to understand that teams will win and lose games, but just because your partner is angry when his team loses, or says his team sucks, that does NOT mean they don’t love their team. The ups and downs are just like relationships; even though the ups and downs that happen the love for the game and team is always there.
My final recommendation for anyone dating a hockey die-hard is to show genuine interest and try to get involved. It’ll show that you care enough try to follow the game. Ask questions, during intermission of course, and I can guarantee that it will help build your relationship.
That’s all I’ve got for now folks!
Remember to Keep Calm and Hockey On!
