You are an actor.
I know it sounds so tempting to pretend you like sports, when in reality you had to brush up on the difference between college football and the NFL.
Pretending to be someone who you are not to impress another person is lying. Flat out. Do you want to be with a liar? I didn't think so. Neither does anyone else.
Be proud of who you are. Love what you love. It's okay if you don't know about something your new partner loves — the good news, he can show you about his interests!
So don't fake it. Most men can smell a faker a mile away. Women can too. Leave the faux for fur.
