A sport’s fans dating advice

Most of my advice is directed at men, but I’m pretty sure you women will be interested too.   Over Thanksgiving, I encountered a serious relationship barrier – football. It offended my girlfriend, on a personal level, that I wanted to spend any part of that day doing anything but looking deep into her eyes […]
