Dear future girlfriend,
Please understand that I may not like going shopping with you, talking about celebrity gossip or watching the housewives show but I do it because I love you.
That being said I must ask you for a simple favor. From the months of August (let’s argue and call it September) till January, every Saturday (for the most part) my college team (whom I have loved since I was a little boy) will play on national TV. I will put on my jersey and start my rituals. Now while I don’t have to watch every game and I have no problem skipping a game to do whatever it is you want to do I just want you to know that these few Saturdays a year mean a lot to me.
What I would really love is if you just sat down with me (for the 2+ hours) and watched those games with me. I will buy you a shirt so we can support the team together. After that we can do whatever it is you want. Win or lose.
*bonus: if my team wins in dramatic fashion we will have amazing sex.
*downside: if we suffer a humiliating or down to the wire defeat I may seem defeated. I will need your love and support.
Umm, all of this. The ex had never dated a college football fan before. It was a bit of a culture shock.
It also didn’t help that SEC means something completely different to her than it does to me.
