Is it a turn off if women like football and cheer like a dude? Watch

    Speaking as a woman, I think that if it's real, it's cool - if you are really passionate about something that's awesome (and surely attractive to anyone?). However, IF she's clearly doing it to impress the boys, and imitating the loutish and vulgar (and frankly disgusting) behaviour of some male football fans to do so... I wouldn't say anything but I'd find it ridiculous and quite disturbing. I'm not really impressed when people behave like morons just to impress others.

    So I was watching the Costa vs Netherlands match and my brother's girlfriend, who is supposedly a football nut, was acting really crazy and shouting and cheering like she was on ecstasy. My dad and I were in shock and my brother was no doubt embarrassed by her behaviour.

    What do you guys think?
    Sounds like she would fit in attending a match and you can be the armchair fan.

    I'm afraid she sounds pretty much like me I have always been into sports, especially football and had an absolute ball this World Cup season (though it's another matter that my favorite team - Brazil - didn't win). And now that it is over, NFL it is for me! I don't know why, but watching football is something akin to a stress-buster for me. And recently I've also discovered some online football games like this one which, it seems, are tailor-made for people like me so that even if there is no match on TV I can curl up in bed and indulge myself! I'm a self-proclaimed football nut myself, if there ever was one...

    If she isn't of Dutch or Costa Rican descent then she is being annoying.

    would like a partner that watched football..

    Means it never clashes with things, as you both want to spend your time watching it..

    If you have a girlfriend that does not watch football.. then at one point as things get more serrious you are going to start to have to make a choice between watching football, and doing something your girlfriend wants..

    And if its a healthy relationship, then sometimes you are going to loose that choice (and sometimes win) - meaning you will miss matches..

    However, if its a priority to both of you, then great no issue at all...

    (reference: married to a women who does not care about football and with her native language not being english, pronounces arsenal as arrsseholle)
