Re: I'm facing a dilemma (sp)

Take it from someone who knows. I've been with my girlfriend for 7 years. YOU NEED TO TRAIN HER EARLY. Tell her that's what you want for your anniversary!

If you spend the day with her, she might actually think that she's more important than the Skins and that would be cause for a single tear to roll down my cheek.

Seriously though, she needs to understand the things you enjoy, regardless of whether she enjoys it or not. One thing I've tried is she and I bet on the under/over and whoever wins takes the other out to eat. It works pretty well because it gives her a reason to watch the game.

Re: I'm facing a dilemma (sp)

Ask her if you can bring breakfast.

Stop at Walmart for one of those bundles of mixed flowers for her mom! Possibly the night before!
Show up at 8 a.m. with three orders of McDs hotcakes for her and her two younger sisters. OJ is in the Refer. No need to buy any!
Have two orders of the Steak, egg & cheese with no biscuit or bagel for her parents, and one small coffee and a small decaf. (Best low-carb breakfast meal for very little) You will get an invite back for Pot-Roast for dinner, from her mom, and an offer to watch the game from her dad! Act surprised!

Leave for the mall at 9 a.m., shop a while and make sure you go buy a "Friendship" ring for $19.95 + tax. Ask her around 10-10:15 if she wants to make it to her Church! Go to Church by 11:00 a.m.! Sing! Pray! Put at least a $5 bill in the Offering! Enjoy!

Go back to her parents house for the above listed Pot-Roast! Remember you already won her mom over with the flowers! Compliment her cooking at least three times. Have seconds, but not thirds. Much smaller portions than your usual for seconds. At 1:00 p.m. offer to help her mom wash the dishes! (I know it's kick-off, but you have to win her, her mom, and her dad, remember!)

At 1:25, you finish the dishes, and walk in to see her dad in front of the Redskin game. She is in her room, upstairs, giggling with her younger sisters, and whispering, a lot!
Her dad has filled you in on Seattles inability to move the ball against the Redskins D, and the Redskins have already kicked a field goal just before you came into the rooom. You've missed 13 minutes of game, but have all of the info!

Dad points out a mistake (doesn't matter which teams) about the same time your girl friend comes back into to room with a Pepsi for you! Stand when she comes into the room, and put your arm around her at some point when you guys are on the couch. Dad points out a Holding penalty. By this time, you are totally engrossed in her beauty, and her perfume! Compliment her on it! Ask to see the ring again in front of her dad!

Dad leaves but for a few minutes to re-cyle some of the sweet tea from dinner, you politely kiss her on the cheek.

Redskins up 13 -3 at the half! Try to curb your enthusiasm over the game. Restrain yourself around her.

When dad returns, ask where he went to college. Tell him that that is one of the top eight or nine colleges still on your list for next fall! Ask what did he majored in, and tell him you've also thought of that as a major. Ask him for the positives about that type of degree, and he will talk not only about that, but also his job! Touchdown Redskins! Now 20-10! A job he cannot even seem to explain to his own family! Speaking of jobs, explain that you've recently taken a part-time job to pay the extra insurance for the privelege of driving your parents 2000 Chrysler Cirrus! As soon as you get the money, you will buy the car from your own parents for $2,000. You even know the book value! You are only $317 away from your goal! You just made big points from her dad! Redskins winning 27-10.

Final: Redskins 27-10.
At 4:30, after the game, ask if she would like to go to DQ for a Blizzard! Ask her parents if you can take all three girls, your treat! Seatbelts everyone! Drive cautiously, but act like you enjoy the younger sisters presence! Bring them all back safely, and soundly by 6 p.m. Thank everyone for a wonderful afternoon. Ignore the sisters whispering and giggling, it's natural for young pre-teens.

Her mom will kiss you, her dad will offer his handshake, and the two of them will be looking at one another hoping against hope that they can indeed find someone just exactly like you for the two younger ones. (Of course, they don't say this to you!)

You won't have to call her later, she will call you before you reach your door at home.

So, Recap:

$15.00 for Flowers, $20.00 for Breakfast, $22.08 (After tax for Ring), $15.00 for Blizzards, a day well spent, and you have the everlasting love of her mom, her dad, and her entire family! Oh, and Redskins win 27-10! Priceless!

To further recap, you are loving, caring, listening, a Church-goer, a giver, and patient! (Remember patience when dealing with the sisters at DQ!)

I meant it as more of a general question and not just directed specifically towards him, though I'm sure he's at least seen some highlights from that game.

Very true.

Chances are somebody that you're dating when you're 17 isn't the woman you're going to marry.

Watch the game.

There's plenty of girls out there, and some of them will actually watch football with you!

But there's only one Washington Redskins.

Re: I'm facing a dilemma (sp)

If you've got a few hundred bucks to blow and don't want to deal with the hassle of planning an entire day, just stop by a local day-spa on Saturday and get her a nice big gift certificate, redeemable on Sunday. Present it to her Saturday night, telling her how you want to pamper her, and help her decide what services to get with it, etc.. Drop her off at the day-spa Sunday AM around 10:00, go home, watch all the pre-game stuff, watch the games, pick her up in the early evening. You'll be the sugar daddy, you'll get some love, and she probably won't mind you watching the Sunday Night game either.

Usually you'd save this for a serious relationship, but if she's worth the money and you want to watch the games, this works every time and everybody's happy!

I agree. It's easy to get whipped when you're young with a serious girlfriend. If you get some tang, then it's better, but STILL not OK.

Re: I'm facing a dilemma (sp)

in an established relationship (ie. post been there), every guy's allowed half a day a week for "guy time". make it sunday. unless you already had a guy's night out or something else you asked her to make room for, half a day sunday is more than reasonable.

if you wanna see ALL the games, all day sunday is much harder to ask for, but i hear longtime married guys do it all the time...

There are 1000 ways to handle this and none of them include missing the game...

Re: I'm facing a dilemma (sp)

You have allready made the first mistake. My wife knows there are 16 must see games every football season (that has been especially true the past 12 years). She knows not even to ask me to do anything on these days. She also has learned that I'm no fun to go shopping with so she never ask me to go. I will go every once in awhile to make her happy but not on game day. Your 17 so its time you establish some rules for your daily life and the first should be watching the skins play. The second should be when forced to go shopping drag you feet and be real impatient and she will start to ask a girl friend to go instead. If you start with these first two rules to manhood life will be much easier and you will never have this dilemma again. One other good note is to keep a copy of the skins schedule in your wallet and when asked if you can do something and its during a game say no I already have something planed for that day.

Funniest Post ever!

Ok, whereas backrow gave you details, he's got the gist of the situation down pat.

I'm glad all the women I've had in my life like football...my wife would understand that we'd celebrate her birthday on Saturday, in order to watch the Skins on Sunday...

Basically, you need to get into a situation where you watch the game..NO MATTER WHAT. If you back down now, as said earlier, you will have to succumb to her wants every Sunday. She has to understand that Sundays from 1pm til whenever the last game it over is your time, not hers.

Taking her to FedEx is out of the question...if she's not much into football, then it won't fly, no matter how well fed she is and how much stuff you get her.

Tell her how much the game means to you, but that no matter what, you will get done whatever it is she wants to do, because she comes first.

Breakfast is a good idea...but it has to be early (and cheap, but i'll explain that later). If you both are church-going, suggest you guys go to the earliest mass available (usually between 8 and 9), so that you'll have the whole day together.

On Sundays, the malls and stores usually open between 11 and 12. This is crucial, to be at the stores as soon as they open. Make sure she doesn't want to go all over town either...that sucks when the plan is to hit stores across town from each other.

Make it a point to buy her something nice "just because"...a pair of earrings, that sweater she eyes in the window of Abercrombie & Fitch, a cute stuffed animal at the toy store.

Oh, and you better butter her up with an awesome birthday present that you give to her BEFORE you go shopping. That way, when you do buy her something nice, it'll mean even more.

Around game time, you head to the local Applebee's/Chili's/place that will certainly have the game on. A nice lunch, with a TV within eye/ear shot will keep you close to the action while you stay focused on her. It being game day, service will be slow, and you'll keep tabs on the first half of the game.

Make sure you get back to her house by 3:30...no matter what you miss of the game (which you certainly can miss pieces here and there, as long as to keep her happy), that you would like to see the end of the game with her. Watch the game with her, explaining what's going on...Most women who don't like football don't understand it.

Oh, and while you're in the car with her...make sure to have the game tuned in, so that she'll know you'd rather be watching, but are spending time with her instead...will make it much easier to see the rest of the season's games.

Above all else...if things seems to be rocky from the start, you best tuck tail and ditch the game. You can use it as one of the reasons why you dump her down the road...
