What sacrifices or actions have I made in past relationships

I have only been in one serious relationship that lasted for about 9 months a year ago. The guy I dated was really big into Hockey, to the point of being obsessed. He played hockey and talked about it 24/7. In the beginning of the relationship I knew it was an interest of his and I thought that was neat but I had no interest in it. He would invite me over to his house to hang out and we would always end up watching Hockey at the end of the day. His favorite team is the Washington Capitals; however, if they werenít playing he was happy watching any other team. The first couple of months in the relationship I was able to avoid any small talk about Hockey until he bought us tickets to go to a game. When he gave me the tickets I didnít know what to say because I really didnít want to go. He never knew that though. So before the game I researched all over the internet about hockey; the players, coaches, rules and etc. I felt pretty comfortable with the knowledge I read the night before heading over to the game. While at the game with my boyfriend I had so much fun! I never really took the time before to understand hockey. It is such a quick sport and aggressive too. The fans in the stadium were all wearing red and chanting till their voices were gone. The atmosphere was unreal! After that game I really enjoyed watching hockey at home. Not to the point of being obsessive like my boyfriend, however, I would make sure to record any Washington Capitals games. Now hockey is one of the sports I love to watch along with football, nascar and baseball.
