5 Signs He's Not the Musician For You
Don't get me wrong, here. It's obvious that I appreciate and adore musicians. More often than not, I'm intensely jealous of his or her ability to piece together songs and fiddle with instruments. Musicians are the reason I have joy everyday; without the songs of musicians it would be a quiet and sad world. Yet I have reasons as to why I'd choose not to be a musician or rather, the reasons they can be impossible to date.
1) The Infamous "Rockstar" Attitude
Confidence is sexy. But swaggering around like you think you're the cheese? Not so much. There is a fine line here when it comes to owning that personality and just being plain disgusting. Yes, you may be incredibly gifted in the vocals and/or instrumentals departments, but let's put it this way: You're no Hendrix.
2) Women. Lots and Lots of Women.
You may be the Gene Simmons of women when it comes to your hometown, or even your county (let's hope not.) However, this women thing can never end well. Women have always been attracted to musicians, and I'd hate to have to beat them away from my man with his microphone stand. You know you're imagining the possibilities. This "women" factor of being a "rockstar" can only lead to one thing...
Musicians, the deep and tortured souls that they are, seem to always have an abundance of helpings on their emotional plate. It's probably what drove them to music in the first place, which is fine and dandy, but...
4) They May Love Their Music More than They Love You.
The music has always been there for him or her, uhm, who are you again? Don't be surprised when a guitar is more important and receives more attention than you.
5)You May be Immortalized...in Song.
This can be a great thing, or something gone very, VERY wrong. Even if the blatantly honest song never hits Billboard, it may never leave your head, and you know the story behind Carly Simon's "You're So Vain"...
Don't be that guy. Or girl.
