Do you roll your eyes when sports comes on the TV? Do you find yourself at Christmases and birthdays buying gifts for them with no comprehension of why he would want a signed photo of Razor Ruddock? When your man is really involved in sports, you may think that they care more about the sport than you, but sometimes a way to their heart is through their sports. So if you don’t care about what Man United are doing, or if Super Saturday is your idea of weeding the garden, maybe it’s time to fake a bit of interest in sports. Let’s provide you with some hints.
Pick the right sport
If your significant other has a wide variety of interests, you need to pick the one that you have the closest affinity with. You may not care about any of them, but it’s far better to go for something with a bit more action. Your man may very well be interested in cricket, but if you cannot comprehend why he’s talking about the biggest six in IPL history or even what these things are, it’s far better to go and pick a sport that you can keep up with. As a rule, football is always the best place to begin. Do a little bit of research, and make sure that you know the offside rule. The fact is that nobody has a clue, but it’s a great way to impress.
Making it a Positive Experience for Him
If you need to fake interest, it’s partly to do with how you present yourself. While it is something you can do to get closer, you need to find something that can keep your interest. Many people enjoy sports because of the camaraderie and the environment, and while lockdowns are in effect, your significant other is probably missing their time in the pub. Maybe this is where you can form a bond with them, but if he doesn’t want to answer your trivial questions, think about doing something that can get you involved on another level. For example, matched betting could be a great skill to make a little bit of money. Some people feel incredibly concerned when it comes to gambling because they could lose money. But if you want to get closer to your partner, but you can’t really get yourself involved this could bridge the gap.
Do You Need to Fake an Interest?
Ultimately, you may find that he doesn’t want to let you into his world. He may be using sport as a way to maintain his sanity and individuality. And he may appreciate the fact that you are trying to get interested, but will probably see through the facade. But sometimes, slowly exposing yourself to something can get you interested. The fact of the matter is that sports can be pretty boring, but there is a game that really hooks you in. If you really want to gain some sort of interest, you might need to be a bit more patient.
