My friend has been seeing this guy for a while now, from my understanding, they get along really well. Similar personalities and senses of humor...the one issue? They don't have a lot of interests in common.
The Superbowl is coming up, and my friend has plans to meet this guy and watch the game. The problem? She doesn't know anything about football!
So her question to me was essentially --

How do I make something fun out of this? How do we spend these days doing things that the other person enjoys, but you don't?

Any tips or tricks for my friend would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks friends!

The good thing is that it's the Super Bowl. If it's a Super Bowl party, then she doesn't really have to know anything. I have a friend who throws Super Bowl parties, and she know absolutely nothing about football. So she can still have fun. Plus she's there with him, and I'm assuming other people. So she can always ask what is going on and what the rules are. In general, you're not always going to meet someone with the same interests. So what's important is that both people are willing to explore each others interests. Then maybe in the process, discover some new ones they may enjoy.
SORRY I'VE BEEN DARED TO COMMENT IN CAPS... SO BARE WITH ME. KEEP DIGGING BECAUSE THERE'S BOUND TO BE SOMETHING YOU FIND IN COMMON WITH HIM. OR EVENTUALLY EACHOTHER INTERESTS WILL BECOME THE OTHERS AS WELL. SHOW AT LEAST SOME INTEREST AT FIRST. YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIKE IT. WE'RE INDIVIDUALS.
@thepervysage has the right idea if it's a super bowl party she really doesn't need to understand it nevertheless when in doubt she can ask for guidance in football (also side note it's not that hard to understand football it basically bringing the football from one side to another with in a certain amount of time(downs) just ignore the stats and your good but in case use Google for some extra help)
I agree with @EthanGinsberg! She can have him teach her about football as they watch. They can do that with other things they like too. I personally like talking to people who don't know any instruments because it gives me an opportunity to create sometimes interesting and humorous memories while teaching them! (Also I get to show off a little. lmao) Trying new activities together is always a really good thing for all couples anyway.
@EthanGinsberg yeah like maybe they can make a game out of it or something? Like if she sees the game, then he has to learn something new from him? @MaighdlinS haha I thought something was wrong with your keyboard at first. lol. yeah totally. I think maybe if she has an open mind to this too maybe she can learn to like it, and they can explore things they both like
