Dear Tammi Lorraine,
My boyfriend is a football fanatic and always wants to have people over on weekends or be at his friend’s house or at a bar. It’s so annoying because my work and school schedule is crazy and the only days we can actually spend together are the weekends. I try to tell him how he needs to pick either Saturday or Sunday to be out and the other day will be for us but he doesn’t get it. What should I do I feel like we never see each other?
Dear Missing Your Man,
Look on the bright side we are half way through the season. Okay, I know that doesn’t bring much comfort and I understand your concern – until mid-February football will be the other “woman” in your man’s life. If he is a part of any fantasy leagues, not only is this other “woman” occupying his thoughts but he is spending money on her too. This time of year can be frustrating for any woman who isn’t big on sports and the best advice I have for you is to figure out a way to enjoy it or find a hobby. If you just can’t sit through a college or NFL game then you’ll have to find something to do with those hours your beau is cheering for his favorite team.
Complaining about not spending enough time together isn’t going to make him WANT to spend more time with you. It will be see as you nagging and trying to keep him from doing what he wants and we all know how that story ends. It is difficult to not bring it up especially since your schedules just aren’t aligned but let him do what makes him happy and it will click “wait I miss my baby”. Letting him miss you is actually a good thing. Try not to have an attitude and allow him his time. I know this is easier said then done but allow him to enjoy the season and pray the NBA stays locked out.
But that’s just my opinion… let’s see what your peers think…
