Is Being a Sports Lover Important to You?

The Lakers kicked off its NBA season last night and it was, as it always is, a star-studded event. There were gorgeous men lining the court and although some of the fans were there to socialize and be seen, a lot of them were there for the love of the game — Leo and Jack to name a few!

Guys who love sports have always been attractive to me. Yes, I happen to like sports, too, but I think it's a turn on to watch men watch sports. Perhaps that's a weird requirement for the guys I date, but ladies, tell me, is a guy being a sports lover important to you, too?

Not required at all. It's actually cute that my lady actually will put in the effort & sit through a football game with me at home or at me bar, with about 40 screaming fans in the background. Now if it's a baseball game, she's right in the mix with me. The only thing we can't talk about is stats. ;-)

It's a requirement for my bf to NOT be into sports. I hate crazy sports fans. Lucky for my bf, he isn't a sports fan or he would have to be out the door, lol :-P I love him so much!! :D

YES! My job is often sports-related, so I love going to games, watching games, discussing games, etc. I thought I would try to date a guy not into sports, since I was meeting so many that I thought just wanted to hang with me for the tickets I was getting... well the non-sports guy was such a bore to hang out with. I couldn't talk to him about ANYTHING! Don't get me wrong, I sound like a sports nut, but I am into music, movies, etc... so sports talk isn't the only thing I'm bringing to the table. But, I need a guy who is into it!!

No - I usually date guys who are more into music/ film/ etc. But I do enjoy going to basketball games back home in Texas, so I'd want him to be openminded, obviously. I think sports are fun but I'd much rather go in person than waste time watching games on TV.

well, i'm such a freak over the olympics. every time it's olympic year .. i'm super excited. lol. as for seasonal sports, i only follow basketball .. actually laker basketball specifically. lol. i grew watching them, so the sport is special to me. but if my boyfriend wasn't into sports, that'd be fine. he wouldn't have to see me go insane watching a game as i yell at the TV .. now if he was a laker hater, that'd be a problem.

I don't find it to be a turn on necessarily, but yes it'd be nice to date a sports lover. I grew up always having guy friends so I love going to football and hockey games and all that. So it's nice to just spend a day with my boy and his friends zoning into the game, or let him spend a day with his buds.

Being an [organized] sports lover is a turn off for me. With few exceptions, I'm bored by sports.

My boyfriend isn't into sports. actually most guys I've dated haven't been the stereotypical sports guy. it's probably a reaction to my dad being a little too obsessed with Alabama football. I don't hate sports & I'll watch an "important" game every now & then, but it's not a turn on for a guy to be into sports.

I hate sports.

It's a requirement for me. I grew up in an intense hockey family and as a result, I know more about hockey than most girls in this country. I would feel weird dating a guy that could care less about sports or had never played sports growing up.

Ugh, spectator sports are so pointless.

i think that it's a nice quality to have - for my man to love sports. it's funny - my fiance is from dallas and therefore is a BIG cowboys fan, but he doesn't get very heated during games which is a good thing i guess. i like to go to sports bars and hang out and do all that fun stuff. i don't know if it's a deal breaker if the guy doesn't like sports, but it's a nice thing.

i think it's a turn off if the guy is too into sports. remember fever pitch with drew barrymore and jimmy fallon? it's okay if he likes it and such.

I have season tickets for Michigan Football and fly in at least 4 games a year (and usually do one away game) so yes, I take my sports VERY seriously :) I love a lot more than just UMich, but for me I think that's the dealbreaker. My boyfriend went to UMich, and is actually as big (or maybe now a bigger) of a fan now as I am!

I LOVE sports. Every woman in my family does. However, my dad has never been much of a sports watcher. I like watching games with my guy friends though, and I know that's something I'd want to share with my boyfriend or husband. So I'm going to say requirement.

I definitely like guys who are into sports... I don't watch games all that often on my own, mostly Red Sox games when I'm not doing anything else, but I love watching with other people, and it could only be better with a guy I'm with. :)

Not a requirement, but it would be nice as I am a sports lover. However, my one requirement regarding sports fans, is no fans of Boston/New England sports franchises or Raiders/Broncos fans - yick!

Definitely not a requirement and certainly not a turn on. In fact, it's actually a turn off. My husband isn't an avid sports fan, at all, and obviously neither am I. We'll both watch the Superbowl, but um, yeah... that's it.

Yes, I like sports. I also think it's sexy when a guy gets really into watching a game.

I'm a big Boston sports fan so it is definitely a requirement for me. I'm pretty open minded about what teams a guy is a fan long as it isn't the Yankees of course!

Nope. I am not usually a fan of sports so I prefer it if my men don't like sports either. Notice I said "usually." Because I happen to be a big frontrunner and I have been watching baseball obsessively for two weeks. But after the World Series, I'll return to being completely apathetic. P.S. GO PHILLIES!

TOTALLY a requirement! I'm obsessed, so we wouldn't have enough in common if he didn't ;) Btw, Dear being from Portland I did not enjoy the game last night too much!

as long as my boy is a Yankee fan and can sit there through all the games with me thats all that really matters. being an all around sports fan is a plus but really its just the Yankee thing that i need :)

My boyfriend (being from the East Coast) and I (being from Alaska) both love hockey! It's not a requirement, though.
