My name is Dean and I love all things rugby. From the rugby stripe shirt to the Ralph Lauren Rugby brand, I love everything there is to love about rugby. But what I love most of all, is the sport of rugby. How could I not? I mean it’s the one sport that has the speed of basketball, the contact of football, and the strategy of chess all rolled into one game. Seriously. What possibly could be sexier and more interesting than rugby? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Especially the athletes who participate in this sport…
Did you know that a ton of really smart and important men in America have played this sport? They include John F. Kennedy, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Meat Loaf. Rugby is clearly a sport where intelligence is required.
I can pretty much guarantee that you’ll never find me wasting my time watching Monday night football…EVER! This is solely because I am way too engrossed in all things rugby. In fact, this past week, I have spent endless hours in front of the TV watching all of the most important games of the Rugby World Cup. Hurrah! New Zealand!
Oddly enough, the other day I randomly stumbled upon an article about how Kiwi women are being helped by the sport of rugby in their efforts to attract men. Apparently, a survey was conducted by this online dating website called, “FindSomeone” that revealed that more and more women are now indulging in rugby talks to help draw-in men. Is this a coincidence, or what?
Dean loves rugby and she’s also searching for her Mr. Right! How ironic…
New Zealand’s largest premium online dating site, “FindSomeone” stated that a whopping 43 percent of females on their site have used the term “rugby” in their personal profiles to attract men. And the topic of rugby has also been an increasingly popular subject matter in online messaging, especially during the World Cup.
FindSomeone manager, Rick Davies, strongly believes that girls who are seeking “Mr. Right” are strategically baiting men with rugby. He thinks that this is being driven by the increasing number of women who desperately want to find someone special during the apparent man-drought in the area. There is so much attention on rugby these days, Davies says, that discussing rugby is a clever way for women to reel-in men.
So now what?
Men with incredibly sexy accents are supposedly attracted to women who can speak (intelligently) about rugby. So, if you are a single girl out there who is looking for love; a girl who desperately wants to meet her Mr. Right…Start. Talking. Rugby.
If you have an active online dating profile, Dean recommends that you discuss your “love for rugby” at least three times in your profile. Don’t have it be the only thing you talk about but do casually use the term all throughout your profile.
Example of how to incorporate rugby into your OKCupid Online Dating Profile
My name is Dean. I am a self-proclaimed dating advice expert. I love to write, flirt with boys on public transportation, and watch rugby. I am skinny; look great in skirts and dresses, and my favorite food is pizza. I am a great cook. (Note: Dean is not really a great cook. In fact, she’s awful in the kitchen. However, men love women who can cook for them. So in addition to mentioning rugby, also mention your strong passion for cooking.)
I’m really good at:
Blow-drying my hair until it’s perfectly straight, lending a shoulder for men to cry on, and understanding the complicated sport of rugby.
On a typical Friday night I am:
At a music concert, going to sports bars with friends to catch a rugby game on the big screen, or out for pizza.
Do you see how easy it is to incorporate rugby into your everyday lifestyle? It’s a simple act that Dean highly recommends for single girls everywhere who are searching for love.
Know Before You Go
You did such a great job with your online dating profile that you have now landed yourself a date with a cute foreigner (who most-likely speaks with sexy accent). But remember, he likes you because of your love for the sport of rugby and NOT for who you really are. So now what? Dean recommends that you brush up on your rugby talk before your first date with him. Some great resources are:
- Google the term “rugby trivia”
- Google the term “famous rugby quotes”
- Google the term “fun facts about rugby”
If you’re a single girl, you know all-too-well that now more than ever is a difficult time to find men. We are clearly living in a world that has an excess of women and not enough men. In this rat race, a single woman MUST do everything she can to stand apart from her competition. If this means pretending that you’re someone that you’re not, Dean says it’s okay in the game of love.
We all know that it’s a difficult task trying to win the attention of a man. So if it’s been proven that rugby is a sure way to attract a man, is it really so bad if we further-educate ourselves on the topic? I think not. In fact, Dean says it can only enhance your already fantastic life. So if you really want to find a man, eat, sleep, and proudly flaunt your rugby stripes. And soon enough you and your Mr. Right will be enjoying your new-found hobby…together.
