hockey players are not that important. don’t make people think that you have to behave a certain way, dress a certain way, like certain things to date one. if you have to change for someone to date you, do not date them. if someone you’re dating isn’t willing to sacrifice free time for you, isn’t willing to stand up for you, isn’t willing to be there for you, do not date them. if someone tries to tell you who to hang out with, who to talk to, how to react to things, do not date them. this is not a healthy relationship and it is certainly not what to expect when entering a relationship, this is not something you should settle for just because it’s a goddamn hockey player of all people. if you’re dating a player, if you’re dating anyone, that expects this of you, get the fuck out of that relationship immediately.
girls and guys, you will do much better things than be a significant other to a hockey player. don’t sacrifice your self esteem, your entire being for some hockey player. if this is the kind of relationship you’re in or what you supposedly should expect from a hockey player, then they are not people anyone should be dating.
if a hockey player (or anyone) is a good, decent person, he will not expect any of these things from you. he will be just as committed to this relationship as you. if he’s not, please do not think this is normal or healthy and get out.
do not think that that post is what all players are like. do not think that that post is not what all players are like. hockey players are people first and foremost, they can be a good person and they can be perfect in a relationship or they can be a bad person and be toxic and unhealthy in a relationship. they are human beings. don’t date a player just because they’re a player, look at what you need in a relationship and what is okay and what is not okay and if they’re not that, then you gotta get out. a relationship shouldn’t be just worth it at the end of the day because they’re a player.
