I moved in with my boyfriend about 5 months ago and I'm thinking it was a BIG mistake. All he ever wants to do is watch sports. When he wakes up its sports, when he comes home its sports and at night it sports. The weekends, forget about it, its sports, sports and more sports. I'm at the breaking point! I'm glad he has something that makes him happy and he enjoys, but enough is enough! Do you have any thoughts on how I should address this? It's at a point where it's either me or the sports.
Slacker thinks throwing out an ultimatum to a guy is never a good idea. To the guy, the sports are an unconditional love while hers is just conditional. She could just fake it and get into the sports with him, like Slacker’s mom did with his dad. This is not a bad thing for him to be obsessed with in comparison to drugs or alcohol. Steve thinks if she leaves it won’t matter because he can just get another girl to have relations with.
If you’ve been in this situation, can you turn him back? Do you give the ultimatum? Do you move out? What advice do you have for Carrie?
I was that girl that got into sports because I thought a player was hot, so once I sat down and started watching the sport and understanding it, I wanted to know more and more. I got into players and their stories and I think that’s what Carrie needs to do. She should sit down and find a time to watch ESPN with him and maybe she can find a common ground with a sport that’ll help save their relationship. However, there is more to a relationship then what you watch on TV… Who knows, maybe one day you can find a night where you can watch what you want with him… Talk about it!
