If all you know about rodeo cowboys you’ve learned from The Longest Ride, we have some news for you. Some things are even worse than in this movie. Dating a country guy is never easy, let alone rodeo cowboy. Like in any relationships there will be ups and downs, but if you are tough like cowboys and cowgirls are, you will be able to handle them. Here are just some of the downsides, so you know what to expect.
He Is Always Training
If you want a guy who will always be there for you, put you first and drop everything just to be with you, you are definitely barking up the wrong tree. When you are dating a guy who wants to be a professional rodeo cowboy, you need to keep in mind that his training is extremely important to him. He will practice 24/7 and there won’t be much time for your romantic dates.
He Is Always Surrounded by People
Rodeo cowboys are always in the center of attention and they have a lot of friends. Therefore, keep in mind that spending the night alone with him is next to impossible. When you go out, you will go out with his friends as well, and when you grab a bite to eat someone will join you. Basically, forget about privacy.
Pray for a Cold
That is the only way you won’t be able to smell him. And trust me, he doesn’t smell like roses, especially after a rodeo. You will need to make peace with the fact that your car will stink like his equipment and that your guy will be covered in dirt most of the time. Nevertheless, don’t let it stop you from hugging him or kissing him. Let him know how you feel about him and show him how proud you are when he wins, even if he smells like crap, literally.
Don’t Let Him Know How Scared You Are
Watching your guy ride a bull is not a walk in the park. You will probably get three more frown lines whenever he competes, but that is just the price you have to pay. Don’t panic in front of your guy or ask him to find another job. Rodeo is his life, so if you don’t like it, go date an accountant.
