If you're a sports fan who is looking to date another sports fan because you're sick of having to watch The Bachelor on Monday nights, just take a look around you the next time you're watching a game in public—during commercials and breaks in the action, of course.
Whether you're watching a game at a sports bar or watching it live at a stadium, it's more likely than not that you'll be within striking distance of a few single girls. And those single girls, more likely than not, are going to be legit fans. Otherwise they'd probably be somewhere else.
This is actually one of the best possible scenarios to approach new people. If you're out at a club, approaching a girl who you know nothing about is like a telemarketer cold-calling people—they're working without a net and the potential for success is low.
If you're attending the same game or rooting for the same team at a sports bar, you're not strangers. In a friendly crowd, you're more like friends who haven't met! There's a built-in conversation starter and plenty of outs if things aren't going well.
That being said, it never hurts to have a strategy. You've already got something working in your favor, but unless someone makes a move, that won't be enough on its own. Now, if you've got plenty of game and know where to go from here, that's fantastic. Godspeed.
For those who could use a little help facilitating things, stick around. We've got 10 tried-and-true methods for picking up a date while watching sports. Remember, the more you employ, the more success you'll enjoy.
