Beware: football season is fast approaching.

The 10 Commandments For Girls Dating Football Addicts To Avoid A 15-Yard Penalty

Ahh, summer is here.

The fresh breeze, the free time to do activities that you didn't have time for during the year, and most importantly? There's no football...for another month.

Yes, football is fast approaching, and those of us dating a "sports guy" are starting to get PTSD from the endless game plays from the last football season and missing TV shows due to ESPN highlights. For all of my MVG's (Most Valuable Girlfriends), I have composed the 10 Commandments for Dating a Sports Fanatic.

1. Come to terms that he'll disappear for 6 months

I'm sorry, but don't be surprised that come August when the preseason games start, your boy drops from the face of the earth. Just remember, the game will end and they'll be back in your arms (but probably talking about the game.)

2. He'll have more love for a certain player than you

How many pictures of me does my boyfriend have in his room? 0.

How many does he have of Russell Wilson from the Seahawks? 3.

Do the math.

3. Try (or pretend) to learn the different plays to the best of your ability

You may not be interested, but if you EVER want to converse with your boo during the football season, you need to learn the sport. You don't need to know every play, who won every championship or game, but just the basic ins and outs of what football consists of. Trust me, it'll help to keep your attention when actually watching the game.

4. Listen to him when he get's mad over a loss

You're going to have to play psychiatrist, and it's only fair!

We go to our man when we have some girl drama, so why the double standard? He's going to be angry at his team, as they are bound not to win every single game (it would be great though, huh?).

Let him rant, scream, and pout. We'll never know the wirings of the male brain, to be honest.

5. Get ready to spend some major $$$ on the games

Tickets definitely aren't cheap, so start saving some moolah now.

Your boyfriend is going to want to splurge on tickets to football games, and those aren't exactly cheap. And the food? That isn't cheap either.

Case in point, start saving little by little of your paychecks, so you can go out and enjoy yourself at the stadium!

6. He's probably loud and obnoxious during the games...that's common

Either wear earphones or join the fun in yelling your ass off. There's no in-between.

7. Root for his team if you don't have your own

If you have a fave team, or if you choose to root for the team you were raised with, go for it! IF not, root for your boyfriend's team. This will definitely save you from a couple of fights!

8. Ask questions, and get involved!

To a football-fanatic, there is nothing cuter than a girl asking questions and getting involved with his sport. So, go ahead and ask those dumb questions!

9. Remember: football season ends in February

Face it: the Superbowl is fun.

Not only is it a reason to party, but also because it is the last game of the season! And if that isn't something to drink to, I don't know what is!

10. But as fast as it goes, it comes just as quickly

It's a cycle, but hey - at least you have a month left to have your boyfriend back!

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
