The big NFL event is one of those occasions singles everywhere can enjoy regardless of how they feel about football or the teams they will be rooting for. Which leads us to ask, where will you be watching the Super Bowl this year?
Surprisingly, men and women disagree as to where they would prefer to watch the big game. According to a recent survey by It’s Just Lunch, an overwhelming 53% of men compared to 32% of women prefer watching the biggest football game of the year at home while 53% of women compared to 38% of men said they would rather watch the championship at a Super Bowl party.
It’s no surprise considering most men probably don’t want to be bothered with idle chatter as they absorb themselves in the game. On the contrary, women are by nature more social creatures, so they prefer the social interactions that are most likely found at a Super Bowl party where there tend to be lots of people and lots of chatter. Not surprisingly, most women watch the game for the half-time show while most men watch the game mostly for the game itself.
The best place to watch the Super Bowl comes down to how absorbed you want to be in the game. If you prefer not to be interrupted, you may want to consider staying home to watch the game with a few good friends.
If, however, you’re watching the Super Bowl strictly for social purposes, then your best bet is to score an invite to a Super Bowl party or head to one of the local pub events with a group of friends where you be as social as you want to be in between commercials, or the game.
That being said, unless your date is as big of a fan as you are, it is wise to avoid using the Super Bowl as a first date event. Sports can bring out the “fanatic” side and sometimes that isn’t the first impression we would like to make. Plus, cheering for the men on the field leaves little time for getting to know you conversation.
