A lesson on How to Treat  a Woman Right From an NFL Quarterback
Brady Quinn, an NFL Quarterback flies half way around the world to be by his girlfriend's side

When it comes to professional athletes there is a public perception of that many of these guys are spoiled brats who make a tremendous amount of money because they have a God-given ability to play a sport.

Because many of these athletes are paid handsomely and revered by the masses it is not uncommon for them to develop huge egos and a sense of entitlement. These guys are paid well, chauffeured all around the world first class and live a life most people can only dream of, simply because of their ability to play a game.

As a result these guys are looked up to and revered by the masses. They live in a world where guys want to be them and girls want to be with them, not for who they are, but for what they represent.

This stereotype, may be common for many professional athletes, and the truth be told if I was a 20 something single guy who was making millions of dollars and being worshiped by the masses I probably would act the same way.

For the most part the image that is painted by these super-rich, super talented ego maniacs is well deserved.

But every so often one of these athletes steps to the forefront and shows that it is not the fame and fortune that makes these boys act the way they do. It is simply their internal character.

Having known a few professional athletes and entertainers in my life, I have learned that fame and fortune simply make you more of what you already are.

If you are a loving and generous person you will simply do more loving and generous things. If, however, you are selfish and ego-centric spoiled brat, you will tend to do and say things thinking only about yourself and there will not be any concern for how your words and actions effect others.

Today, I heard a story of Brady Quinn, the back-up quarterback for the Denver Broncos. Brady is dating elite gymnast Alicia Sacramone. While in Tokyo training for the World Championships, Alicia ruptured her Achilles tendon so badly that she required surgery.

So, what did her boyfriend do? He got on a plane and flew half way around the world to be by her side during her surgery.

Why? Because that is what a MAN does when he loves his woman.

It could have been easy for Quinn to come up with all the excuses and reasons for why he couldn’t make it to Tokyo. But he didn’t. He did what he felt was right in his heart to support the woman he loves.

So, the next time the guy you are dating says he can’t do something that is important to you. Realize it is not that he can’t do it, it’s that he won’t do it.

Why? Because it’s simply not important enough for him to be there and support you.

I know it may seem that guys like Brady Quinn are rare, but they really aren’t. There are loads of good men out there who would love to be in a relationship with woman like you. But you will never know about these types of guys if you never give them the opportunity to show you how great they are.
