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.

How To Trust Your Intuition When You’re Making a Decision

How To Trust Your Intuition When You’re Making a Decision

When you have an important decision to make, what is the first thing you do?

You want to know if your decision is right or wrong because, of course, you want to make the right choice. Do you go to friends hoping they will tell you? Do you agonize over it writing lists? Or have you ever tried to feel into the wisdom of your body? We all have the ability to read the body’s signs – inwards and out. But not everyone knows how to listen and trust your intuition.

You may have noticed two voices in your head arguing back and forth. They can get loud and confusing because they both seem concerned for your well-being.

So which one is your inner knowing and which is simply resistant? You can tell through the simple exercise of slowing down, breathing deeply and tuning into your body. You will notice very real signs.

Everyone can tune into their intuition with the simple exercise outlined below. If you want to know how to trust your intuition, read on.

The Golden Rule

A rising, light and expansive feeling in your heart is a yes. A sinking, contracting and heavy feeling in your gut is a maybe or a no, which are both a no. The best way to access these feelings is by slowing down with a deep breath.

Access Your Inner Guidance

Think of a simple decision you have to make that has two sides to it. Forgetting your background stories, take each at a time and sort of role play as you alternate each option in your mind.

Don’t go into the details of how you’ll get there or how a certain person might feel about it. Drop the stories and worries around it, simply be with one option, as though it is your choice. Remember, you can always pick up your concerns again right afterwards, if you want!

Bring option A into your mind like you are already there. It doesn’t have to be super specific, just imagine it is the direction you take. Start with the breath because it is clearing, it resets your nervous system and brings you to be completely present. Begin with your long, deep breath, exhaling all the way out.

As you sit there and think of option A, notice what is happening in your body. What sensations are there, and where? Do you feel a buzzing in a limb or a prickling sensation? Maybe butterflies in your stomach? Sit with it, not judging it. Simply take note of what your body is telling you. If it is light and expansive then you have a good option. Now, take another breath to clear out option A.

Next you will probably notice feelings in different parts of your body as you focus on option B. Again, drop the fear and doubt you might have around it. Let yourself imagine (just for now) that this is what you’re choosing. Your breath is so important in this because it slows you down and connects you with your inner guidance. Give yourself that few extra seconds to deepen your breath. It will help you feel incredibly clear.

Become curious about the feelings in your body and how they are different from the last option. What do they mean? The answer is always in the weight of them. If they rise and feel light, you have your yes. The option that feels shrouded, heavier, contracted and sinking deeper in your stomach is the warning. It sounds simplistic, because it is.

Your body has a profound and simple wisdom. When you let go of old expectations and open up to myriad possibilities, you can easily feel the best avenue to take simply by following what feels best. This is an important key in manifestation because how you feel at the start of any endeavor is generally how it will play out. So the lighter you feel about a situation, the happier it will be.

The Bottom Line

A special thing about intuition is that it never explains, it simply points the way. It may not always seem logical, but if it feels best then it will lead you to your success.

Remember, you need not to explain yourself either. Your internal yes will always be with you. The more you practice this and follow your internal yes, the stronger it will become and the more confidence you will gain! Soon you will notice it to be second nature, and the answer will come to you in a heart beat.

How have you connected to your intuition? We would love to hear how this exercise works for you. Where did you feel the yes or the no in your body?
