10 Reasons You Should Start Dating A Soccer Player Right Nowby Lauren Passell on June 04, 2012
I recently noticed that, after many years of dating, about 83% of any boys I’ve crushed on, kissed, or dated have been soccer players. It isn’t hard to see why:
They look physically amazing.
They’re in great shape, but not because they are meatheads who are obsessed with beefing up at the gym. The soccer player has a natural, incredibly sexy shape. And those abs! You could play ‘em like a xylophone.
They have some sort of discipline.
If a guy has to report to soccer games, or practice, or even just gets up at 6 AM on Saturdays to watch a football game in London, he is likely to have some sort of self-discipline, which is a good thing to have in a partner.
You can actually play soccer with them.
Even if you hated soccer when you were young, you have to admit — it’s fun to play with a hot guy. So if you go to the beach or park, he’ll probably have a soccer ball. And you’ll probably get to play with him. He’ll probably help you. And you’ll probably get to touch his xylophones.
They smell good. (I’m sorry, did I just say that?)
There is something about that terrible, foul, sweaty smell that is a total turn-on. Maybe it’s just a reminder that they are out there sweating, getting dirty, pushing over other guys, being fast, kicking stuff. Whatever it is, it’s hot. They should bottle it up — I’d be sold.
You can hook up with them on a soccer field.
It’s actually a great place for a hook up — and they’ll definitely know where to take you.
They look cute in jerseys.
It’s not just that they look cute in jerseys — they’re just cute fans in general. I love seeing a guy get passionate and into anything, and hard-core soccer fans will wear their jerseys like 5 year-olds wearing a Superman costume. It’s adorable.
You can help them cheer on their team.
Whether that be in your underwear in your apartment, or in a bar with some beers, it’s fun to get into sports with the one you love. Even if you thought you’d never, ever like that sport. Even if you still don’t love the sport.
They’re jocks. Which can be good.
Make fun of jocks if you will, but you have to admit that they’re driven, confident, head strong, set goals, and celebrate accomplishments. They’re also competitive. Total win, scoring you.
They’re healthy, in shape, and can keep up in bed.
They’re probably health conscious, eat nutritious foods, and don’t have a beer belly the size of a large potato sack. They can lift you, last longer, and keep up with your energy.
