He has hopes to play here or overseas, and I completely support him. She probably gives him a tiny pep talk, flips her hair like a glorious mermaid, and takes her perfect long legs into another room so that he can obsess and be negative in private.
However, boyfriend isn't the star athlete who has the natural ability to play without trying. Of course, come spring, Gisele gets Vacation Tom, who I assume is far less obsessed and moody than Quarterback Tom. I don't want to blame the victim here, but perhaps the real problem is this: "he's my best friend and the center of my life." That's great, but you need some balance.

So, why did I limit myself to dating athletes if i I didn't care about the size of a potential partner's biceps or the scope of his bank account?
In the beginning you may feel neglected because of how busy your partner is, and that’s normal, but over time you’ll realize that is the life an athlete lives.
No matter how long their day was, it’s your voice they want to hear at the end of the day.
At the end of the day, any complex that you may have done not come from a student athlete whom you’re dating.

For those who are on a team, their teammates become their family as they share in the joys and disappointments of sport.
For the solitary athletes, they become a part of the larger community of like-minded competitors.
