Ask Sujeiry: How to Cope with a Man Obsessed with Sports

Men love sports but what do you do when he loves his sports game more than you? Relationship advice for women on how to cope with a man obsessed with sports.

Dear Sujeiry,

The World Cup 2014 may be ruining my relationship! Ok, I’m being dramatic but my boyfriend is obsessed with sports. He watches football, baseball, hockey, basketball and sports highlights about games he’s already watched! He schedules our time together around what’s on. It’s driving me crazy.

I know it may seem like a little thing but I don’t know how to deal with his constant need for sports games. How do I cope with his obsession?

Dear Sports Fanatic Boyfriend,

I actually don’t think it’s a little thing at all. If it’s a big deal to you, it’s a big deal! My question to you is: is this a dealbreaker? It may seem silly to think of it like this, but if his obsession with sports is affecting quality time, it’s a factor in your relationship.

If it’s not a dealbreaker, you may have to join him in his obsession. Get into sports teams. Make it fun by inviting friends over. Go to sports bars. It may not be ideal (trust me – I do it for my boyfriend when I just want to watch an episode of Scandal on ABC). But it will help ease your frustration.

You should also talk to him about balancing his sports time with quality time. He can record games with the handy DVR. No matter how you go about it tell him it’s affecting you and your relationship negatively. If he really cares he will begin to make you and your relationship a priority over the big game.

Love strongly and wisely,
