Love it or hate it, the Super Bowl is an annual event that will have many faithful viewers tuned in for this spectacular event. But are you a wife or girlfriend who does not share your other half’s interest in the Super Bowl? Do you cringe at the very mention of the Super Bowl? Rather than spend the whole day moping around and making your partner feel guilty for watching the Super Bowl, here are some suggestions that will help increase your partner’s enjoyment of the Super Bowl.
How to Contribute to Your Husband’s Enjoyment of the Super Bowl: Encourage Him to Invite His Friends Over
Many men love to watch sports on their own and root for their team to come through for them. But the Super Bowl is different. It is an event that many viewers love to share with others who are like-minded. Even if your partner has not broached the subject with you personally, he may secretly wish to invite his friends over to watch the Super Bowl with him, but he does not want to upset you. Do not take your partner’s silence to mean that he is perfectly happy to watch the Super Bowl alone. If you are the one to mention it, he will not feel guilty in then calling up his friends and inviting them round for the event.
How to Contribute to Your Husband’s Enjoyment of the Super Bowl: Learn the Rules of the Game Some Other Time
Many women want to please their partners by trying to learn the rules of the game. While it is commendable that some women go to these lengths to learn about a sport that does not interest them in the slightest, asking about the rules of the game during the Super Bowl is the wrong time. Not only will the women receive icy stares and short, clipped responses to their questions, they will also annoy their partner and cut into their enjoyment of a long anticipated event. If you do decide to sit through the entire Super Bowl with your partner, make sure that you do not interrupt by asking a lot of questions. Leave comments and thoughts of the Super Bowl to commercial breaks. There will be plenty, so do not worry!
How to Contribute to Your Husband’s Enjoyment of the Super Bowl: Snacks
The Super Bowl is the one time of year where many diets lay by the wayside as people reach for convenient snacks that are on hand such as chicken wings, tortilla chips and lots of high fat dips. One way in which you can contribute is by offering to prepare some Super Bowl snacks. Choose snacks that can be easily eaten, such as mini pizzas, mozzarella sticks, a few devilled eggs, homemade salsa and low fat tortilla chips.
These are just a few ways in which you can make a positive contribution to your partner’s enjoyment of the Super Bowl. Remember that many fans eagerly look forward to the Super Bowl. Your attitude can do much to either dampen the event or make it more memorable.
