Eye-opening dating habits of die-hard NFL fans revealed in study

Relationships are a serious commitment -- but, so is football.

From September all the way to February, avid football fans dedicate every Sunday (and often even Thursdays and Mondays) to their sport and team of choice. That can get on the nerves of a significant other if they don't understand or care for the game.

Why not just date someone who loves football as much as you? Well, that's easier said than done, especially when you realize how picky some NFL fans are.

A study done by Fanatics delves deep into the dating preferences of each team's fanbase -- and it revealed some interesting trends.

A bachelor or bachelorette being a fan of your team's rival would cause some serious issues for many, but especially for Baltimore Ravens supporters: 50% of Ravens fans surveyed said they would refuse to date a fan of their division rival Pittsburgh Steelers. Another 42% would absolutely not date fans of the New England Patriots, who the Ravens often run into during the postseason.

When asked if they would rather give up sex for a year than date a rival team's fan, 24% of those Ravens fans said "yes." Now that's commitment.

Ten organizations also had at least 50% of their fans report that they would rather date someone of the same football fanbase than of the same faith. Philadelphia Eagles fans came in hottest there, with 68% of fans surveyed saying they'd rather a significant other switch football teams for them than convert religions.

Similarly, nearly 30% of Buffalo Bills fans said they would rather go against their political beliefs and vote for an opposing party than date a division rival.

All things considered, there's one group that the rest of the league voted the least dateable: New England Patriots fans. Over 17% of fans from the rest the league would refuse to date someone sporting the Flying Elvis. The Dallas Cowboys came in second in that ranking, with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Green Bay Packers and Atlanta Falcons rounding out the top five.

(The three "least dateable" fanbases have 16 rings between them, however, so we're sure they aren't too upset.)

Needless to say, if you're planning on putting yourself out into the dating world any time soon, you might want to flaunt your favorite football team a bit more -- it could save you some grief in the long run.
