Are Men Supposed to Like Sports?

I grew up around sports. I played from the age of 5 until the age of 18, when I started watching them instead. I've been talking to a guy recently. He's smart, has average taste in music, is mature, sweet... and nerdy. He's NOT athletic. He doesn't work out (never dated a guy who doesn't make time for the gym) and while he doesn't dislike sports, he's not really into them. I definitely watch more ESPN than him, and I DON'T like that.

On the flip side, I don't know if I could handle dating a guy who was like OBSESSED with a certain team or sport. If we had to watch, say, EVERY SINGLE Cardinals game (a team I even like)  that was on TV, I'd be annoyed. Especially if he had to wear a certain pair of red socks every game day and not wash them the whole season, or some other stupid superstitious game day ritual!


If a guy/girl doesn't like sports, would you LOVE it or HATE it? Do you wish your guy or girl liked them more or less?



It's weird that sports have such an impact on relationships, but hey, this is 'Murica!
