Why Dating is a Sport

Some women don’t understand that that dating is a sport – just like hunting and fishing.

These are the women at home alone weekend after weekend, fearful of flirting with a guy or taking the initiative to engage him in some way. And asking a man out on a date is unimaginable! Feeling that they are "too shy" or "too afraid of rejection" these ladies don’t understand that flirting and simple conversation such as "Hi there! My name is Tangela, what’s yours?" is pretty much all they need to do to get things rolling.

Fearful people want guarantees that if they work up the nerve to flirt or converse with an attractive man they will have something to show for it at the end of the exchange. Doesn’t work that way folks. There are no guarantees in life, nor in dating, and there are certainly no guarantees in fishing!

True fisherman will freeze in the cold, get up at 3:00 a.m., and spend hours and hundreds of dollars on bait, tackle, special fishing chairs, and rubber hip boots to wade into the water with. They expend all this effort and money just to bag a stinky fish or a dead animal with bullet holes in it that they can boast endlessly about.

Should he be successful, a man will find great enjoyment in telling the story of that battle over and over again for years. 

Fishermen use strategy and they use patience. They also dress appropriately for the environment in which they will be working, and they use the right bait. They may practice their craft in their back yard – throwing out their line until satisfied they can hit the mark and get their bait within inches of the spot aimed for.

Fishermen will then travel miles and miles (sometimes hundreds of miles) to get to an area where the "fish are biting" or where it is rumored that the "biggest fish are." These guys aren’t there because they are guaranteed they will get a fish at all, especially the size or quantity of fish they hope to catch! Nope.

Share this with someone you love (or even like a lot)!
