Re: Down Sides of Dating You
Not so much a dating thing but an example of intensity.
I remember when my son told me he wanted to play football (age 10). Firstly I told him he could only play flag football until he was older, 13. He came of age and wanted to move on to tackle football. I got intense, told him he had to get stronger, faster, gain more endurance and get better at his skilled position. I took him to the park, put a backpack filled with sandbags and ran him through coordination and endurance drills, speed drills (he threw up his first day). I asked him you want to quit? He said no. Next drill, his back facing me I drilled the ball at him and yelled out ďballĒ. He was expected to turn around (quickly) and catch it. If he did not it would hit him and probably be painful. I asked again, ďyou want to quit?Ē He said no. We did this for a whole month before signing up. Intense? Kind of, but that is who I am. I am either all in or not at all.
Fast forward: my son just finished his senior year of football and lead their team in receiving & running yards and TDs. He was a starter since his sophomore year and a co-captain this year. He has several college offers. Although he is not interested in taking it to the pros, he does want to eventually work in sports management for a living. I think he too is a bit intense. I wonder if I did him a disservice in his future relationships.
