Absolutely not. It’s more likely to make you a catch.

I love football and follow it religiously. I’m a girl and my fellow and I talk and watch football all the time.

Do you mind if we ask how old you are? If you’re still in high school, you might find boys are threatened by your smarts. That will change as you get older.

Yah I’m still in high school…

I didn’t get into sports until I was out of High School, but none of my friends or romantic partners have had a problem with it. I think that many adolescents still like to compartmentalize people into stereotypes, and it isn’t until college or later (if ever) that people learn to see that there are exceptions to every rule, and that personality traits are fluid and people can’t be judged by their gender, skin or hair color, sexual identity or preference, or even their religion. Hang in there, you’ll find your place in the world.

@flyravens82 High school boys can be so insecure. My wife loves to see the Patriots win, but other than that, she is clueless about the game. I’d love it if she could talk coaching strategy and understand a little more than the score. Follow your own heart. If you love football, go for it. Not all males will see that as a negative, and the ones that do probably reacted that way due to their own insecurities. Good riddance, if you ask me.

It wouldn’t bug me if my love interest was into football even though I hate the game. I’m sure my love of hacking routers is equally repulsive to the fairer sex.

Big turnoff. Go back in the kitchen and knit me something. Don’t speak until spoken-to.

Oh wait, it’s 2014. Women are actually equal. So yes, do what you love, follow what you’re interested in, and don’t compromise who you are to appeal to the other sex. If some asshole you like has a problem with your hobbies/interests not being “femine” enough, then you’ve just saved yourself the time and effort of dating a prick. Trust me, there are plenty of other men who would LOVE to date a football fanatic.

Never, If you want to play football, and have the skill set needed, then you should definitely play. No one said that a girl couldn’t play football, if others tease you just don’t bother. My daughter is learning karate and all my relatives keep asking, “Karate is for boys, isn’t it?” But my daughter loves it and she wants to learn it at any cost. Regarding the fact if guys find it unattractive, I believe a guy should like you for who you are and not for what you play.

Nothing is wrong with that at all. If girls are into wrestling, skiing, martial arts, the army, carpentry and hand wrestling…..football no problemo. As a matter of fact I think its sexy. I like the aggressive types want my number?

Why would it be bad? If you’re being teased about it in a friendly way, just let it go, or make a smart remark back to them. If that’s all that anyone can find to tease you about, you must be a pretty cool person.

Don’t you even start examining your likes and dislikes and then “changing” yourself to fit some perceived societal expectations of women. Don’t do it. We’ve fought too long and too hard to get over that. Besides, the last thing you want is an insecure man.

Very, very bad.

Come sit next to me.

Katniss's avatar

Nope! I love hockey the same way you love football minus the season tickets, way too expensive.
I don’t care what people think.

Dutchess_III's avatar

My husband would so love it if I was into football like he is. But I’m not. To me, Sunday is the day that 60 minutes comes on…right after football.

As Shakespeare said so long ago: “This above all, to thine own self be true. And it shall follow as the night follows the day that thou cans not be false to any man. ”

In other words, don’t be afraid to be yourself. Quality people will be attracted by that and like you all the more.

Anyone who doesn’t isn’t worth bothering with. Their opinion doesn’t count. There will be plenty of guys who will like your love of football as something to share with you.
