A Girl's Guide To Football Playoff Season
It's that time of year. You're trapped in the house with your partner for hours every day on the weekends and the only thing that's on any television channel is football. It's playoff season. NFL teams are slowly being eliminated as we slowly march toward the Superbowl on February 3.
If your man is glued to his mobile device or television screen checking the scores every five to ten minutes it can create some rocky moments in your love life -- no matter how solid your long-term relationship is. You want to keep your sex life steaming during the winter months, and getting upset over football won't help you keep things hot in the bedroom.
What's a girl (or non-football fanatic) to do? You do have options.
1. Get with the game.
It may seem obvious, but if you can't beat 'em, why not join them. There are many reasons why men and women spend so much time watching sporting events. It's fun and relaxing. You never know what's going to happen next, and it's a great escape from your day-to-day routine or a stressful work environment. You don't have to know any of the rules or the personalities of the players. All you need to do is choose a side and bet your partner a blowjob that your team is going to win. All of a sudden the game will be much more intriguing to you both.
2. Ask questions.
The best part about the NFL playoffs is that it doesn't take long to become reasonably acquainted with the game of football. Ask questions. Your boyfriend will be grateful that you're taking an interest. Not in a relationship? Ask questions. The hot guy standing next to you might know the answer and will probably buy you a drink. There is nothing sexier to a man than a woman who's willing to watch sports. Nothing.
3. Call it "Me Time".
Don't make your partner feel guilty about his passion for the game. Whining and pouting is only going to reflect badly on you. You know you've got a long list of items languishing on your "TO DO" list. So, kiss your honey goodbye and get going. Tackle a crafting project, clean out the garage, bake bread, take a class -- whatever solo activity that you've been putting off -- now is your moment. Get out there and do it, and don't feel guilty. You'll feel so good about what you accomplished, and you and your guy will have fun having a sexy reunion when game time is over.
4. Throw A Party.
Embrace the season of football and show off your hostess skills! Invite some people over to watch the game, and you'll find out that in every group there are people like you who would rather hang out in the kitchen and watch HGTV. You can still have fun and you may even make a new friend or two. Let the gamers watch football, while you enjoy the pleasure of cooking for a new group of people.
5. Find some middle ground.
Ask your partner if he'd like to watch the game at a bar in a mall where you can go shopping and meet back up for the final quarter of the game. That's when the party really gets started. Or run errands during the first half, and then rejoin your partner to watch the second half. It's the perfect compromise.
Playoff season doesn't have to create conflict between your and your partner. Find a way that you can enjoy the build up to the Superbowl and keep things sexy.
