7 Tips For Dating A Major Football Fan

7 Tips For Dating A Major Football Fan

When it comes to dating a major football fan, you have two choices: beat him or join him. Since it’s highly unlikely that you are ever going to beat him, or in this case get him to stop watching football, you may as well find ways to join him. At the very least, you can find something else to do on game days. Here are some suggestions that will help when you are dating a major football fan.

1. Ask Questions

You know, if you learn more about the game, you may actually be able to enjoy watching football with him. Start asking him questions about the game and how it’s played, the players, etc. He will be thrilled that you are interested in what he is interested in, and he will likely be an encyclopedia of knowledge. You can also bone up on football by doing your own online research, and then impress him with what you know.

2. Football Date Night

Another way you can show him that you support him in all that he does and loves, including football, is to set up a football date night. Dress up in a cute cheerleader outfit, and watch a football-themed movie. Of course, once he sees you in the outfit, you may never actually get to the movie.

3. Wear Football Apparel

For many men, there are few things that are sexier than seeing their girlfriends or wives wearing nothing but a football jersey. Of course, if he’s having friends over to watch the game, you will need to wear a bit more. You can find loads of awesome sports apparel at a number of stores (like Fancastle and Fanatics).

4. Give Him Space

If you really can’t stand football and he loves it, give him some space to enjoy the game without having to worry if you’re enjoying yourself. Go and hang out with your friends, work on projects that you have been putting off, cook a good meal to enjoy after the game, etc. He will really appreciate it that you’re giving him time to enjoy the game, and if you play your cards right, he will show that appreciation after the game.

5. Wear Football-Themed Makeup

There are a number of makeup brands that offer special colors for sports fans. You can do your makeup in the colors of his favorite team, and show that you have team spirit and support his love of the game. You can be subtle about it by simply wearing eye makeup in team colors, or go all out and paint team logos on your face with your makeup.

6. Get a Hobby

While it’s a good idea to try and enjoy football with him, if you just can’t get into it, don’t bother faking it. Instead, take up your own hobby. Maybe you’ve been meaning to take up a musical instrument, or start gardening. This is your chance to do something you’ve always wanted to do, and you know that for a few months out of each year, you will have plenty of time for trying out new hobbies.

7. Do a Football Manicure

If you want to do something more subtle than doing your face up in team colors, why not try a football manicure. There are so many things you can do with nail art. You can paint team logos, footballs, fields, and so much more. The easiest way to do it is to apply your base, color, and top coats. Let everything dry, and then use acrylic paints to do your designs. If you make a mistake, you can take it off with rubbing alcohol, and it won’t damage the polish. Finish your football nail art with a shiny top coat.

10 Simple Ways To Always Think Positive Thoughts

10 Simple Ways To Always Think Positive Thoughts

Positive thinking can lead to a lot of positive change in your life. Developing an optimistic outlook can be good for both your physical and mental health.

But sometimes, certain situations arise in life that makes it hard to keep a positive outlook. Take steps to make positive thinking become more like your second nature and you’ll reap the biggest benefits.

Here are 10 ways to make thinking positive thoughts easy:

1. Spend Time with Positive People

If you surround yourself with constant complainers, their negativity is likely to rub off on you.

Spend time with positive friends and family members to increase the likelihood that their positive thinking habits will become yours too. It’s hard to be negative when everyone around you is so positive.

2. Take Responsibility for Your Behavior

When you encounter problems and difficulties in life, don’t play the role of the victim. Acknowledge your role in the situation and take responsibility for your behavior.

Accepting responsibility can help you learn from mistakes and prevent you from blaming others unfairly.

3. Contribute to the Community

One of the best ways to feel good about what you have, is to focus on what you have to give.

Volunteer in some manner and give back to the community. Helping others can give you a new outlook on the world and can assist you with positive thinking.

4. Read Positive and Inspirational Materials

Spend time each day reading something that encourages positive thinking. Read the Bible, spiritual material, or inspirational quotes to help you focus on what’s important to you in life. It can be a great way to start and end your day.

Some recommendations for you:

5. Recognize and Replace Negative Thoughts

You won’t be successful at positive thinking if you’re still plagued by frequent negative thoughts. Learn to recognize and replace thoughts that are overly negative. Often, thoughts that include words like “always” and “never” signal that they aren’t true.

If you find yourself thinking something such as, “I always mess everything up,” replace it with something more realistic such as, “Sometimes I make mistakes but I learn from them.”

There’s no need to make your thoughts unrealistically positive, but instead, make them more realistic.

6. Establish and Work Toward Goals

It’s easier to be positive about problems and setbacks when you have goals that you’re working toward. Goals will give you motivation to overcome those obstacles when you encounter problems along the way. Without clear goals, it’s harder to make decisions and gauge your progress.

Learn to set SMART goals to help you achieve more.

7. Consider the Consequences of Negativity

Spend some time thinking about the consequences of negative thinking. Often, it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

For example, a person who thinks, “I probably won’t get this job interview,” may put less effort into the interview. As a result, he may decrease his chances of getting the job.

Create a list of all the ways negative thinking impacts your life. It likely influences your behavior, your relationships, and your feelings. Then, create a list of the ways in which positive thinking could be beneficial.

8. Offer Compliments to Others

Look for reasons to compliment others. Be genuine in your praise and compliments, but offer it frequently. This will help you look for the good in other people.

9. Create a Daily Gratitude List

If you start keeping a daily gratitude list, you’ll start noticing exactly how much you have to be thankful for. This can help you focus on the positive in your life instead of thinking about all the bad things that have happened in the day.

Getting in the habit of showing an attitude of gratitude makes positive thinking more of a habit. Here’re 40 Simple Ways To Practice Gratitude.

10. Practice Self-Care

Take good care of yourself and you’ll be more equipped to think positively.

Get plenty of rest and exercise and practice managing your stress well. Taking care of your physical and mental health will provide you with more energy to focus on positive thinking.
