WHILE other men dream of dating actresses, models and beauty queens, University of Santo Tomas spiker Mela Tunay insisted athletes are the best women to be with on dates.

Not only are female athletes fun to be with, they can be more like their boyfriends’ best pal because they speak guy talk and know how it’s like when his favorite team loses and share the joy when his team wins, Tunay said.

The fifth-year University of Santo Tomas volleybelle lists down five reasons why you should date a volleyball player:

1. We understand - "Ang volleyball players understanding, kasi we prefer less drama."

2. We are open minded – ."Hindi kami sensitive."

3. We know how to adjust – "Like sa games situations, marunong kaming mag-adjust, be it sa pakikisama or sa time sa jowa."

4. Physically fit – "Naaalagaan namin ang sarili namin, so we are fit… and hot. Char!"

5. You will learn how to be loyal – "Kapag jowa ka namin, mamo-motivate kang maging loyal kundi we’ll slap you in the face! Pak!"
