When you watch a football match, there are times when players unselfishly pass the ball to their teammate in a better position, rather than to take the plaudits by scoring a risky yet remarkable goal.

This is important in a relationship, as he’d be able to let go of small arguments, with the bigger picture of the relationship in mind.

Athletes know how to work with others, be it in a competitive team or just as gym buddies. They share the ups and downs together as their teammates and coaches become their family, hence developing a strong sense of belonging. This too transcends to relationships, where they’re likely to be loyal to their partners.

Procrastination is definitely not a word in his vocabulary if he works out. If he’s into working out regularly, it’s likely he’s a productive person in most aspects of his life. Hopefully, his productivity will inspire you to get off your behind and start achieving what you’ve always wanted to do.

There is nothing more important than this last point. If he works out, you can almost guarantee he has a toned tush (Guys, please don’t skip legs day EVER.). A nice behind makes all the difference in a snug pair of jeans, which is more than reason enough to date a guy that works out.
