Why don't most girls don't like to watch sports

Report as

I don't enjoy watching sports , just not me . I do sometimes watch hockey only because my son plays , but I won't watch him play to emotional for me . ( the older they are more physical they are to scary for me) I will sit through a baseball game , but really just like the peanuts lol , football no way !! When the guys are watching the game I tend to leave . Super Bowl I fell asleep lol

Some girls do and don't . I would imagine the ones that don't have other things to worry about or fine joy in other things . Then the ones that do likes sports like anyone else . Sports are for everyone not just guys .

Well for me... Sports like basketball and stuff don't catch my attention as much as like swimming and horseback riding...probably because I don't really know about those sports as much as swimming and horseback riding..One of my best friends LOVES basketball.. so not every girl hates to watch sports.

Because guys won't explain what is going on. Once they understand they really enjoy them. I grew up with brothers so I explained a lot to my friends. Plus I grew up in a small town and we had a great Jr. high PE teacher who taught the basics of every sport as the seasons started so we could follow along.

Well, like someone else mentioned, we have our own stuff that we like. Why don't guys like romantic movies? Haha :p

Because a lot of guys have to walk around with their chests puffed out and put on the macho act to feel secure because they are insecure and unsure of there "manliness." I personally don't mind a movie is a movie in my book .

Props to you for being real, Shane! I think it's great that you can fess up to that. That's a lot manlier than being scared to admit you like romantic movies or the color pink and so on.

Tonight was the most nerve-wrecking game I've seen yet!
Report as
I know, Leone!! When Allen made that shot, I literally started flipping out from how happy I was! We need to win game 7 though...so nervous!
Report as
I was scared it was going to be a 2! Chris Bosh and his blocks were a huge contribution. And yes mam, we do! I hope it's a repeat as last year, with mike miller making 5 3's :D
Report as
They were!! Bosh kicked butt tonight! I was getting annoyed by all the faul's though :p Oh god, that would be fantastic!! :D I have faith we're gonna win though..not gonna lie, SA is good competition for sure, but I have a good feeling!

*foul's
Report as
I was getting pissed in the 3rd quarter where there were no fouls called when wade and Lebron were driving to the basket >.>
And tell me about it, the spurs are playing their best since they've won their championship! Tim Duncan is playing like he's 28 ! :p
Report as
like romantic movies? what.. i love them... writing one
who said guys dont like em?
any smart guy does.. since the gal does.. 1+1 = fun
Report as
yay game 7
Report as
Leone: UGH, ME TOO! I literally went insane!
I know!! I see a pattern: We win won game, we lose one game, we win one game, we lose one. I noticed that! Tim Duncan is definitely a tough cookie..if we lose Game 7, I don't think I'll be able to cope, lol
Report as
bestoflife: Hey, in all fairness, a lot of guys refer to romantic movies as 'chic-flicks' and refuse to watch them.. :p you're writing one?! so cool!! hit me up when it's famous. Lol
Report as
too late... well not the romantic one
but the other one just hit wallmart
consider yourself hit
Report as
Well lets hope we don't lose Thursday!! It's our turn to win 2 games in a row . But if somehow, we end up losing, I'll give it to the spurs because they played/playing their best right now. But hopefully, which they will, the heat can win! :D
Report as
Gee...thanks?? lol
So the one that just hit Walmart isn't romantic huh? Hmm..this better not be porn. lol
Report as
Leone: That's true!! Hey, I gotta give 'em props, they're a good team since recently! :) But hey, us heat fans gotta stick together! We'll win as long as we believe we will.
Gotta follow you since you root for the Heat :D
Report as
And Danny Greene, he came out of no where with all those 3's! He even eat Ray Allen's record! :o which I was shocked..
Yes, yes we do!!
And you know, your like the first girl who actually knows what their talking about. Which is good of course.
Report as
Oh yeah!! I did not see that coming...they've really impressed me this season...it reminds me of when we played against the Pacers, that was pretty intense too..
Awwh, why thank you, I'm flattered! I'll admit, I didn't really get into basketball until just last year, but I really enjoy it :) I think it's the most interesting sport because something's always happening, it never gets boring
Report as
Ohh yes... Paul George was killing us! Him and Hibbert and West.
And I'm glad you chose basketba, made the right call! :p but can I ask how/why you chose basketball? You don't have to tell me though..
Report as
Sorry, I got timed out! :(
YES! After you said Paul George, I was gonna mentioned Hibbert and West but you were way ahead of me, lol!
Of course!! Well, last year I had a group of friends which had 3 guys, and they were all really into the Heat so they convinced me to watch a game..it was pretty easy to understand what was going on and they explained certain terms to me, and I really loved it so ever since then I would keep up with every game :) When did you start getting into it??
Report as
Haha, I noticed :p and well ima have to thank your friends one day :p
And I started liking/watching basketball since the 2nd grade, I think? 1st or 2nd.. My dad, older cousins, uncles would play at my house(we half a half court) and they would come play. I remember everytime we had a free write, I'd write about basketball. I really got into the game of basketball 6th grade, and that's when I started playing semi-good too.

There is something that happens to your heart rate when watching sports... Almost like imagining yourself playing the game. Women generally are not wired to be so rough and tumbly so we cannot imagine like you.

like "who" girl?
and you ARE ruf and tumbly.. and all that stuff :)
wanna wrestle?
Report as
Nah, I'm like piglet... You're tigger. Woo hoo :-) (going to hide in my little house now)
Really, I saw a show a long time ago that measured men's heart rates while watching sports, it went up during moments of intense action, just like it would if they were actually playing the game.
When I watch football lets say, I don't picture myself tackling anyone. Not really.
Report as
so does s*x.. make heart rates go.
for that matter.. so does getting an occasional KiK from a friend... js

I actually love watching and participating in sports. I think it all depends of the person. Some women do, and some women don't. Just like some men do, and some men don't. I think that people who play sports more, tend to also like watching them.. So the fact that some girls don't play sports may contribute to them not being interested in watching them. Like I said, I think it all depends on the person.
