There are a lot of ladies out there on a quest to land a professional athlete. It sounds easier than it is if you really think about what it takes to get one and then think about what it takes to date and keep a professional athlete.
There are a lot of different ways women meet professional athletes. Depending on your life and what suits you, it may just be in your path to come across and date an athlete.
Get Involved in Sports
If you’re an athlete yourself, you may have a bigger chance at meeting and dating one. Athletes are always getting together and living happily ever after. They understand each other’s schedule and have a lot of the same drive and personality characteristics. For example, Olympic gold medalist Ashton Eaton and his wife Brianne Theisen-Eaton. They met in college as they were both college athletes in Track and Field. They have both been to the Olympics together and support each other and train with each other.
That brings me to my next topic. A lot of ladies meet their professional athlete in college. Many college athletes are looking to go pro in what they do. If you want to snag an athlete early in the game a great way is in college where you have time to get to know them and support them. All you have to do is go to class or the games!
Use Social Media and Online Dating
Use the Internet and Social Media! Social media is a great way to meet an athlete and also do your research while you are on there. Find out if he is married or dating someone, has kids, etc. Follow them on Instagram, maybe like their pics or shoot them a DM. Another easy way to meet athletes is by joining the dating site.

Pros and Cons of Dating Professional Athletes
Once you actually begin dating and being in a relationship with an athlete comes the hard part. Yes, there are a lot of perks when dating an athlete, considering the amount of money they make and their popularity. However, athletes tend to get whatever they want just because they are athletes and famous and have money. They also like to party a lot. Chances are you can meet one in a club as well. This can be a problem when you begin to date because you might feel as though you can’t trust him.
When they go out there is so much temptation around. They get so much attention and everyone knows who they are and ladies are not afraid to throw themselves at them. You have to be able to handle situations like that when you are dating an athlete.
You also have to be ready for their busy schedules. All athletes travel a lot especially when they are in season for whatever sport they play. You have to know if you are willing to travel with them to their away games or be prepared to spend a lot of time away from them while the season is on. Athletes are also really focused and serious when they are in season. There are also athletes that are not guaranteed to be on the same team their whole career. If you get married or live with the athlete you’re dating you have to be willing to move with them to whatever team they are playing for and however often they move.
You have to support the athlete you are dating. They work and train hard and have some late nights and they would love to know that you support them. Go to as many games as you can and cheer him on and wear his jersey.
Let’s not forget about the perks that come with dating an athlete! The access to red carpets and award shows, expensive shopping, nice cars, mansions, etc. Getting good seats to the games every week and being recognized by people. It is the celebrity treatment and just because you are linked to a professional athlete. However, is it worth the price? Dating an athlete is definitely not all bad. There are definitely challenges as well as benefits. It is important to understand that behind Alabama; of the images, they are normal people just like everyone else.
It can be hard to date and sustain a relationship with an athlete and a lot of females end up going through a multiple of them. Athletes are not exactly known to be faithful or willing to commit to a serious relationship because as mentioned before they travel a lot and there is temptation everywhere. But if you can do it go for it!
