Read our pros and cons first: PROS Alex is a twenty-something Londoner who originated from California, and feels just at home on the beach in Galveston, TX as she does sipping a cocktail on the South Bank.She treasures her Japanese heritage, especially if it’s sushi related, and would drink bubble tea every day if she could.He’ll regularly be plagued with self-doubt about his creative abilities.....it will become your job to ensure he doesn't throw in the towel on the whole music thing by assuring him of his immense talent.When he's away on tour, you'll start having paranoid dreams that he has a whole other tour girlfriend on the side......leaving you always wondering if those lyrics supposedly about you are about you.Often gorgeous and totally mysterious, every twenty-something has to date a musician at some point. But we all know that musicians can be temperamental, and their way of life isn’t exactly conducive to a stable relationship.Considering life as a roadie for your musical amor?
Do Not complain when your (insert holiday here) date gets cancelled because a show has been scheduled. They are the one’s buying the CDs and merch, not you, so let them have their time. Like your going to sleep in the back of a van and eat ramen for 4 months straight!? You’re lucky he is using the quarter to call you, instead of buying gas or food. Never say anything negative about your man’s band that you cannot say to him. Don’t follow him around at shows like a lost puppy, he is taking care of business, find your own crowd. Going from preppy to Nu to hardcore shows you are not your own individual. If he calls while out on the road, don’t complain about when he is coming home. If you’re a stripper, keep work on the pole, not at shows. Relationship problems can be dealt with after the show. If they have a show out of town, don’t drive just so you and your boy can have “alone time”. In fact, the life of a musician can make relationships hard.Nonetheless, you can work to make your relationship better and be the best partner you can be to him or her, though don't forget to expect the same in return.
