Dating a touring musician dating in baltimore md
Before I even get into it, let me properly preface this with some important context. To every non-musician reading this, you’re just an outsider looking in. Here are some of the most common false truths about musicians when it comes to dating, especially for up-and-coming musicians:• Musicians/Artists get TONS of gorgeous women falling for them. Now I’ll be honest, I have my fair share of female supporters, but nothing comes close to an official ‘groupie’.• Musicians/Artists regularly get groupies after all their shows. And to every dude dreaming of becoming a rock star just for the chicks, I may have just shattered your hopes and dreams. Musicians are mysterious and flighty creatures lost in a poetic dreamscape. He, however, has lived the life less ordinary forever and as such cannot fathom the prospect of being enchained in the corporate routine of work/sleep/death. The self-loathing that accompanies his 'gift' is part of the fabric of his being and as such, no singular experience is lived outside its realms. Your trip to Glastonbury made him gag at the thought of meaningless escapism for average people to get off their tits and pretend they're bohemian for a week. be prepared to embrace your new life as the NOT-cool one. Even an ardent cynic will find the sight of a guy strumming away, all wild hair and tortured expression sexy as HELL. You don't get his Talking Heads circa reference but you laugh anyway and hope it slips under the radar. He can't fathom why you paid £50 to see Alt-J when he could have made a call and got you backstage. He simply cannot fathom why you'd willingly pay upwards of £300 to sit on a beach elsewhere as that would be passing up opportunities to hang out in artisan coffee shops and dinge-bars. His hand-to-mouth existence means the prospect of planning anything beyond the next three hours makes his palms sweat. If you complain about this, you're massively selfish, FYI. The key here is that even Chris Martin (who really ought to know better) allowed this "burden" to take precedence over simply getting over himself. But herein lies the crux of the matter: take away his "burden" and you've effectively stripped him of his raison d'être. With that, I have nothing but the utmost respect for any woman brave enough to date a musician.If it’s going to work though, there has to be lots of trust.
The reality is this: groupies don’t care about you when you’re on the come up, because you’re likely broke and struggling.Now this flat out sucks when it comes to fulfilling a woman’s every lingering desire, because time is the one thing that she will likely want the most.But it’s the element that there is the least amount of. from a loud, broken-down tour bus because that was the only time I could call. There might be days when the only time we talk is when I call you at 2 a.m.
• Work • Sleep • Family • Friends • Fitness That’s a bold statement, but I’d have to agree it’s kind of true.
