Practices usually run about two hours plus a work out. University players typically have to have team breakfast, a pre-game skate, a team dinner, pre-game warm up, the game, interviews and etcetera after, and then it’s usually off to bed. Will he commit to a school far away, maybe even a different country? With a hockey player you’ll never know what the future holds.This schedule goes on for at least 7 months, and playoffs are usually more intense. He could stay where he is now, he could be traded, he could move to a different league, he could commit to a university in another state/country, etcetera.This was super hard, but it truly made me appreciate him even more than I would if I got to see him every day.
They might not accept you right away, or even for the first couple months.
You might feel unliked or unwelcome, but it’s something you sometimes have to deal with.
After all, everyone knows that girls love bad boys.
It seems that so many girls think that dating a hockey player is some glamorous, fantastic lifestyle that everybody wants, and although we all love our men for all that they are, there are some disadvantages that come with dating a hockey player, some of which I’m going to explain. I do LOVE being a hockey girlfriend, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.) A hockey players schedule is one that interferes with a lot of exciting events, such as prom and other school events.
My boyfriend plays Junior Hockey for the Seattle Totems.
For every away game, he has to take a team bus all the way to the destination.For example, my boyfriend plays anywhere from two - four games a week, with two practices, a work out, and volunteer work.On game days he has to be there at LEAST an hour - hour and a half before the game starts.In my case, I sometimes don’t get to see my boyfriend for weeks at a time, and now that I go to college 6 hours away that has just gotten even worse.When I do get to see him, though, I make sure to take the cutest pictures I can after his games, as I'm sure every girlfriend does after her boyfriend's games of any sport.You support his dreams and encourage him to get to where he wants to be, but when he tells you he’s moving 19 hours away, one can’t help but think It’s an ongoing battle sometimes with hockey parents. His sister(s) might automatically think you’re a puck bunny.
