Dating a drummer
I remember (fondly, in fact) the first time I was asked out by a drummer. Desperate for dick and the chance to prove my friend wrong, I dated him. But it’ll still drive you crazy when they show up late for everything. Of course, I called up my gay best friend and told him the good news. They take triangles (the instrument) very seriously — and they expect you to as well. Comes from the musical instument (Drums) played by the member of a band, usually sits at the back of the stage.Without this godlike creature there would be no rythem to the music and havoc would incurr. 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. It was one thing to have dated musicians, photographers, and painters all through my 20s, but to actually marry a struggling artist was a completely different thing.
I would never say that I fell in love with my husband because he was a musician, but I can say it did help (as did his French accent.) Now, when he drives me a bit bat shit crazy, I just has to breathe and remind myself that I married a French musician, so maybe that’s why he doesn’t understand that sheets should be changed once a week.
And in saying so, I mean no disrespect to groupies. They’re about a level up from your neighbor’s dip-shit third-grader who hums into the recorder when he plays “Hot Crossed Buns.” They’ll try to tell you that not having their own place makes things easier when the band tours. There’s only one thing worse than a guy who expects the woman he’s dating to do everything for him.
Now, for all you foolhardy gals who can’t take good advice at face value (like myself) I’ve compiled a list of seven perfectly good reasons why these dudes deserve a fake number.
Yes, there are some downsides to dating a musician, but why harp on those?
Instead, here at 37 reasons why dating a musician is really the best.And I’m not just saying that because I can’t afford apology cards for ex-lovers (thanks a lot student loans). Drummers are a lot of fun, but, really, you should never date them.
