    16 Reasons To Fall In Love With A Lacrosse Player

    We're fit, we're feisty and we're fantastic with our hands.

    1. We can handle you like we handle the weather – in every condition possible.

    Lacrosse is an all-weather sport, meaning we're gritty as can be. Whether it's pouring with torrential rain or there's a snow blizzard coming our way, we play. If we can take whatever the weather throws us at us, then you can be certain that we can take you at your best and your worst.

    2. We're very protective.

    The aim of lacrosse is to protect the ball, so we're naturally very protective when it comes to our relationships. We'll keep a close eye on you and look after you, as we would a teammate. We may sometimes seem a little intense, but it's only because we care!

    3. We're good with our hands.

    Lacrosse is a very fiddly sport. We have to master a number of tricky skills, from using both hands to play the game to having super quick reflexes, so let's just say out ability to handle balls isn't only limited to the lacrosse pitch ;)

    4. And we've got excellent stamina.

    There's no time to rest when it comes to a lacrosse match. As soon as the other team has the ball, sometimes there's such a quick turnaround that you have to be on your toes ready to run the full length of the pitch to catch them up. Lots of running = endurance on and off the pitch.

    5. We'll make every second with you count.

    Lacrosse players have to dedicate so many hours to lacrosse training and working out at the gym. You may think we don't have any time to spare, but if anything, it's the exact opposite! We'll treasure every single minute we have with you... until the next round of training begins.

    6. We're fit AF.

    Time spent away from you in the gym or at intensive training is certainly time well spent. It may be difficult getting to grips with our busy schedule, but you'll be lucky you stuck with us! You thought our bums looked good in leggings? Just you wait till you get them off later...

    7. We're total foodies.

    All that exercise really does build up our appetite. If we're not playing lacrosse, we're thinking about or eating food, which makes us the perfect companion for date night. We will literally eat anywhere – as long as there's food, and lots of it, we're there!

    8. We're thoughtful teammates and partners.

    Not only do we play lacrosse as a team, but we're naturally team players to the core in life as well. Relationships are all about supporting each other equally as a unit, which we have heaps of experience of. When you're down, we'll bring you up and we're sure you'll do the same for us. Teamwork makes the dream work!

    9. We're a sociable lot.

    10. So a night out with us is not one to be missed.

    Seriously. Come out with lacrosse and you'll have the best night of your life. Everyone's up for a good time and our spirits stay soaring high until the early hours. You know the saying – work hard, play harder! It's always fun to let off some steam and you get to be a part of it, you lucky sod.

    11. We like to spice things up.

    12. We can drink you under the table.

    There's no need to worry about us getting too drunk on a night out. It's taken ~a lot~ of practise, but years of lacrosse has given us a very high alcohol intolerance. We love a good time just like the next person, but chances are we'll be carrying you home, rather than the other way around. You'll be well looked after!

    13. We release all our stress on the lacrosse pitch.

    Playing lacrosse is a brilliant way to release any tension. No matter what we're feeling stressed out about, whether it's a slight strain in our relationship with you or something else entirely, we're guaranteed to feel better after a run around the pitch. By the time we're cuddling with you, we'll have calmed down completely.

    14. When the going gets tough, we get tougher.

    Winning a lacrosse match isn't as simple as running across the pitch and scoring a few goals. We have to dodge other players, hustle for the ball, defend the goal at all costs, attack with all our might... it truly is a battlefield. Whatever life throws at us, we can take it. So, no matter what obstacles may come our way in a relationship, we're ready to face them head on with you by our side.

    15. We're extremely loyal.

    16. And we're just an all around perfect catch.

    That is, both literally and figuratively. Catching a ball is easy, but finding someone who can keep up with our lacrosse-obsessed lifestyle can be slightly more tricky. However, if you think you're ready to take on the challenge, you'll learn that the pros of dating a lacrosse player waaay outweigh the cons. You're welcome!
