Why dont guys like girls who like football?Page 1 of 6    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
Ever since women started pretending to like it as a means to attract men. I like a woman that has different interests...I believe that allows for both of us to have space. It would really suck if a woman enjoys everything I enjoy...that way when I don't really feel like being around someone I'm guaranteed to have her hovering around cause she loves all the same things. How ****ing boring is that. It's nice to find a person who can actually expose you to different things. Furthermore I think it's creepy when guys say shit like..."She's like a guy...with a vagina!!" gross! I don't want to think about any of my male friends having a vagina. The more like a man a woman is the less likely I am to like her. That includes having the same interests.

I think your love for football isnt the problem. It may be that you are coming off to much like another guy. You actually stated that they said that.
This is similar to when women think men are like a brother or friend. They dont see you as someone to have sex with.

And you may be too aggressive. That turns off a lot of men

"thanks to some who gave good advice i apperciate it and to others who think its wrong or too manly oh wellllll i cant help men cant handle a woman who knows more about the sport than men lol'

I'm not sure what happened to what I just posted.

MANY men like a woman who can be aggressive in bed.

MANY Men don't like to be proven inadequate, with what they know about Football.

Go get 'EM, Tigress : ) But pounce at the right time!

ROFL! As IF. I can't stand sports and won't try to pretend I do for ANY man.

I don't mind a woman liking football. It would be more annoying when a woman pretends to like football. But doesn't know the basic rules.

" I have the same problem but it doesnt stop with football. I am a very dominant aggressive female (I also have my passive moments) and tend to emasculate the average man. "

From Merriam Webster :

Definition of EMASCULATE
transitive verb
1: to deprive of strength, vigor, or spirit : weaken

2: to deprive of virility or procreative power : castrate

3: to remove the androecium of (a flower) in the process of artificial cross-pollination

It's not the football. You advertise as BBW. Few guys are attracted to large women, and unless you still have somewhat of an 'hourglass' figure, that number declines as well (men are attracted primarily to females with a 70% waist to hip ratio, and the further away you get from that, the fewer men will be attracted; still, the ratio stays the same even if you're heavy, so there's still hope if you can maintain the feminine shape). You'll eventually find some, but it might take a while, and the more feminine ones will get the guys first. Trying to 'work your way in' by treading into traditionally male activities might help, but again, it may take a while. Also, some guys who hang out with people into that type of atmosphere might worry about taking some heat for dating a chick who's not what everybody thinks of as the stereotypically hot girl, and may not have the guts to ask you out in that same atmosphere, so keep an eye out for the guy who's keeping his eye on you, and make it easy for him to approach you without the other guys seeing. It may not be politically correct to say this stuff, but life isn't easy and sometimes you have to do whatever it takes to find your guy. Good luck.

Depends if your an over zealous football fanatic or just a fan. Fanatics are glued to FB, whether it be playing, watching or participating in a fantasy league. Fans participate but their lives are not consumed by it. Perhaps you'd have better luck at a sports bar instead of fishing here.

I don't like football (or any sports), so a woman liking football would be a negative for me.

Men want to have a man cave to go to-the last bastion of male dominated space. With women I've been with, their only interest in football was looking at the player's asses, and they make no secret about it. I heard there is a lingerie football league around-physically fit women playing football wearing skimpy clothes. Women find this sexist, but find skin tight pants on a male football player acceptable. The only comment I hear from women concerning a game is: "Why does the game last 20 minutes after the two minute warning?"

To hell with all of the psychological talk.

As long as you don't mind being touched where ever than let's see what you got. Touch or tackle? It doesn't really matter. It all ends up tackle in the end.

Pray for rain.

I not only like football, I used to run a Fantasy Football league. It was never a problem for any men I dated. ( I suppose those who had a problem with that, didn't ask me out in the first place. )

Understandably, what was more of a problem, was my desire to spend Sunday afternoons with my guy friends watching the games and giving each other a hard time.

I meant exactly what I said, as evidenced by the collection of jars filled with testicles I keep in my basement.


Hilarious!


I grew up with three brothers and tons of neighborhood boys. I didn’t want to sit on the porch playing Barbies with the tidy girls; I played football with the boys and had fun. I even earned the nickname, ‘OJ’ and I swear that was because of my athletic skills.

OP. If some men don’t like you because you like football, forget ‘em and concentrate on the ones who like you the way you are. : )

apparently theres alot wrong...im told that its not right for a woman to enjoy the sport simply because its a man sport and they dont want to date a" buddy"


Who told you that, a girl? Your mom? Your brother?

They have women's hockey teams now....maybe football is next.

Football fans tend to be intelligent. They require someone who can find the shift key, someone who uses punctuation.

Putting football or NFL or Steelers as an interest might be a good idea.

Wearing a jersey is not evidence of fandom. On this site a photo at a game in team apparel is usually taken by her ex and she's not a fan.

Gals who play football might prefer a husky guy. Because I'm built like a cornerback or kicker, they probably wouldn't think of me as more than a friend.

My fiance is Australian and, although Australia is a sports loving country, he doesn't care to watch or play sports. I, on the other hand, am a football fanatic. Come August, I'm glued to the TV on Sundays and Monday nights. He's had to acclimate to it since, after all these years, I'm not about to change. He's getting more involved in the game as time goes on. He does like a baseball game in person though, so I might try and get him to a live football game also. Some men like women who enjoy sports and others feel it should be strictly 'males only'. Do what you enjoy and don't let a man make you act differently than you would if he wasn't around.

Depends on the situation if its a tradition him an his friends share its most likely closed off to new comers (he wouldn't be allowed at girls night out right) same principal that or he's to worried about you getting hurt or felt up by the other players it really depends on the seriousness of how they play like I'm 5'11" tall 190lbs ex military and iv gotten broken ribs from playing with my friends

In my case it would be because I'm a guy who doesn't like football.

I personally dont like girls who are into football, i dont understand how a guy can suppoet that, its a bunch of of buff guys running around, you cant help but wonder. If youre a girl, youre not supposwd to be buff, youre not supposed to be a fat slob but pick some physical activity that corresponds with the female biology. Imagine a bf who likes pole dancing or cheer leading?

Most women dislike sports

Huh?
Umm..."Most" women speak for themselves, thank you:)

Im a big time hockey nut....but the NFL creeps into my Television screen every now and then. Especially when it gets down to the nitty-gritty.
In fact, Im getting ready to watch the Cowboys kick some Redskin butt in a bit!

If a man doesn't like me because I like football, he can kiss my Cowboy butt...lol
