    Hibee Partners?

    On a loosely related note, how important is it for the .netters that their significant other is a Hibs fan?

    I ask because everyone's heard the stories about man and woman meeting on the terracing and getting married etc. and wondered if some people still hope for this.

    Multiple choice included for anyone who, er, needs it...

    Not important in the slightest for me, though I also don't have a woman who isn't into football - granted, in her daily life, I doubt it plays a big part, but she comes from a family of Rangers fans, and is conversely one herself. We have good exchanges about football though, and enjoy good banter back and forth on occassion.

    She comes to ER every now and then, and I go to Ibrox on occassion, though only once has it ever been against the other. Sitting on my hands in the home end at Ibrox was difficult, though a woeful Hibs performance made it somewhat easier.
    Okay, technically I'm a serial killer...

    I was all for re-intrducing terracing to football grounds but that's one danger I hadn't reckoned with!

    There probably SHOULD be an option "I converted my partner to the Church of Hibs".

    My partner was a bluenose until I started taking her to games and now she's mad about the Hibs. She's also become a lot more attractive!

    It also helps that the first game I took her to was Dnipro at home (great atmosphere, floodlights, full house) and her first season featured Brown, Sproule, Boozy, Murphy, O'Connor et al

    My girlfriend likes football but doesn't follow a team her dads a hun and has took her to a couple of games but she doesn't bother about them. She likes to see Hibs win cos then i'm in a good mood. She likes Liverpool cos of Gerard and she liked Man Utd cos of Ronaldo but he's away now. Wouldn't really bother me who she supporrted as long as it wasn't hearts i couldn't stand that.

    I'd spent a year in China and my gf there went from having no interest in football to becoming a big fan of the hibees.

    And no, I'm not jealous at all that pictures of Ian Murray and John Collins are what swayed it

    (Actually it was the difference between the Hibs website and Hearts website - Yams site described as "pink *****")

    Probably also to do with the fact that even though I was halfway round the world I still threw a tantrum like a 5 year old when I got news of a defeat to yams haha.

    My wife's not in to football. She comes from rugby stock and goes wild for her egg chasing. She's also english.


    I've got it tough.

    PS: her old boy (despite being an egg chaser) is from Darlington so I have been dragged to the odd quakers game. And folk say the SPL is a bad standard.

    My girlfriend is a Queen of the South Fan, would be great to see them get promoted.

    Went with her and family to the SC semi final against Aberdeen and final against Rangers few years back, superb going to Hampden without the worry of Hibs blowing it!!!

    My wife never followed football but her dad and brother were both Hibees, so she had a sort of sympathetic leaning towards them.
    About 5 years ago she came to her first match to see what me and my boys got all exitable about. Didn't think much of the match, beaten by Inverness, but loved the pre/post match entertainment.
    She's been a season ticket holder for the last 4 years now, and is even starting to understand the game.

    burds have no place in football.

    i took the wife to the hibs rangers game last year when they won 3-2. She wondered what happened to set the Rangers fans cheering (they scored).

    My wife isn't really a fitba fan but likes to see Hibs win. My brother in laws are all jambos which makes it even better for her when we beat them!
