Turn On or Turn Off? Guys Watching Sports

I didn't grow up watching sports. So when I started dating guys who were way into sports, I didn't know what to think. At first, it kind of annoyed me for two reasons: 1.) I didn't like anything that took time and attention away from my relationship, and 2.) I didn't understand what the heck was going on.

Then I dated a guy who wanted to share sports with me (the first present he ever gave me was a hat from his favorite baseball team). He explained the rules of the games, the history of the teams, and then I actually started enjoying watching sports with him. So now when I see a guy watching sports, I love it. There's something irresistible to me about a man drinking a beer and yelling at the TV with all his buddies.

So what do you think about guys who watch sports? Do you think it's a turn on or a turn off?

kk_bama: Does that mean you live in the South, too? ;) The guy I was dating before my current bf wasn't into sports. At all. It was a complete turn-off for me, as an avid supporter of my college football team - especially when he pouted when I wanted to stay in on a Saturday to watch the biggest game of the season for the team. When I met my current bf, one of the first questions I asked him was if he was a sports fan. I didn't think I could stand to date another non-sporty. Plus, he and I have started to follow new teams, and have made catching their games live a roadtrip for us, here and there. I think having a shared passion for sports (even if our college teams are rivals) brings us closer together, because its something we can do with each other, and neither of us feels neglected during the seasons - be it football, hockey or baseball.

In this part of the country, it's likely that if a guy is not fanatical about football, he is either totally artsy fartsy or gay.

I am a fanatical sports fan that could never date a guy that wasn't one too.

I am a huge sports fan, so I could never be with a man who didnt at least enjoy watching sports. I love spending the day cheering my baseball team on with my boyfriend.

Turn on because I also enjoy sports (minus golf) I don't know the rules however I find them so fun! I just bought the "Football for dummies" book; football is my fave sport then hockey and baseball.

i could never be with a guy who didn't obsess about sports, because i am a dangerously obsessed football addict (who happens to have a decent interest in basketball and baseball as well) and i need someone i can discuss this passion with.

Turn off unless he is able to take care of his other responsibilities, before and during the game.

I hate this more than I could possibly describe. All I can say is I'm lucky to have found a boyfriend who does not watch sports. Ever.

you cannot stop men from watching sports. it's how they communicate and it places them squarely in their comfort zone. best learn the language and join in or at least tolerate it good-naturedly because this stuff is crazy important to guys. if you share a sports-related activity with your man and show him that you can speak with reasonable knowledge on his favorite subject, it can only enhance your relationship. now, if only he would put the same effort into your hobbies

I love it when guys teach me things and still act sexy with me in front of the guys. Its nice to watch a bunch of guys screaming and arguing instead of bickering like us girls do during a game.

I love watching Football games with my man. In fact, Sundays are usually cleared so that we can lounge around and yell at the TV all day, or go to a friend's house and yell at their TV. I grew up with my parents throwing watch parties on Sundays, when the Cowboys were winning Super Bowls every year. My ex didn't watch football, so for a couple of years I didn't get to partake in the excitement. Now, I don't know what I'd do if I was dating a guy who didn't like to watch football. It'd likely be a deal breaker, but I don't have to worry about that ever again...

I absolutely love watching sports. Be it baseball, basketball, hockey. My favorite sport to watch on TV is football. So I think guys who watch sports are sexy. Plus it really helps to have that one person to watch them with.

I think it is cute when they watch sports and really get into it. It is their one thing that they can do.

I am way more into watching sports than my boyfriend. But occasionally we'll watch a game together and it's fun.We'd both rather be out playing sports. And for me, that is a major turn on.
