Relationship Issues and Football
Could it be that football heads your list of
relationship issues? Maybe it's even gotten all the way
to the relationship problems phase. Perhaps you've said,
a time or two and with passion: "I hate football!!!"
Well, we heard you . . . or at least, we heard some folks we
know who thought they had become football widows, too.
In fact, if you click on the screaming lady below, you might
recognize someone. Like maybe yourself!
That's right: we wrote a book about it,
Football is for Lovers.
And yes: we do believe it is. Which is why we've expanded
our message into this website.
We've always thought it sad when we hear people (mostly women)
say, "I hate football," when the truth is, they usually know so little
about it, they couldn't possibly hate the game.
More often, it's not about football: it's about relationship
issues. It's about feeling ignored and left out during what
seems like an endless schedule of football games, running from August
pre-season through the February Super Bowl.
We all know that sharing strengthens relationships. Yet we
may not think that something as frivolous as football counts.
Why not? If there's such a simple solution to relationship
issues, why not at least give it a try?
Should your Dearly Beloved pay more attention to you? Should he
give up a football game or two during that everlasting football
But as a dear friend of ours once said, "Being right is not the
most important thing." And it can be pretty cold comfort.
Besides which, we're talking about what you can do about
your relationship issues. The ball, as they say, is in your
court. And really: don't you like it better that way?
We know we do!
Football is a passionate game. You can see that by the
cheering fans on any given Sunday. Or Thursday night. Or
And if your Dearly Beloved is one of those passionate fans,
you're halfway there.
As for your half . . . why not start thinking about football as
sort of like that ugly mutt your guy brought home. Get
to know the puppy, and maybe you can learn to love him, too.
Which is why we're here for you with not only a guide to
but also a
that you probably never
associated with football. Until now.
Of course, since you have to know 'em to love 'em, you might want
to take a minute or two to hop back
from relationship issues to those football basics.
But don't worry! Once you've done your homework, there'll be plenty of time -
and tips! - for
