I’ve Been Told That I Can Manage A Fantasy Football Team Better Than A Relationship

Some may say that this is a sad thing to hear, but honestly; these people aren’t wrong. For some reason, I do have better luck maintaining a Fantasy Football team than I do maintaining a relationship.
But, I think we need to figure out what a loving relationship consists of. I think we need to see what is part of a relationship, and then we can get to the root of why I’m better at maintaining a Fantasy Football team.
To start, the partner in your relationship needs to feel loved and respected. They need to hear compliments; they need to hear you say that you “love them.” If you don’t do that, then they will feel left out and unappreciated.
Same can be said of a Fantasy Football team as well. If you’re only 3 or 4 weeks into the season, you don’t want to be saying stuff like; “What is wrong here,” and “This sucks!” I mean, what kind of confidence and moral does that provide? You need to stay positive, and always keep your head up. Say things like; “It’s early, we’re still learning each other. Don’t quit yet.”
Not only that, a relationship needs time put into it. A relationship needs maintenance every once in a while, so that things don’t get stale and boring. Because in a relationship, you can’t just come home, eat dinner, and binge-watch The Office for the 17th time in a row. You need to spice things up; go out once a week, invite people over, go for a walk, ANYTHING!
Not maintaining a Fantasy Football team can also have dire consequences as well. If you keep the same players in week-after-week and they’re NOT producing, then you’re not going to move further in the league. If you keep the same players in week-after-week, then your team will be BOUND to fail. It will fall into obscurity, and I’m sure that you will be pissed off in the end!
But the question is, WHY is this the case? Do I have better luck with Fantasy Football because there’s the possibility of winning money down the line? Or is it because I’ve had a relationship with football longer than any relationship that I’ve had with a woman? MANY different factors can come into play!
