Rules when dating a musician
Do not bogart her attention at shows (see Proper Show Behavior).
In fact, do not bogart her attention ever, but especially from people within her music community. After all, it is likely the reason you were attracted to her in the first place.
To the average musician, going abroad is for tours only and 'holidays' consist of watching old movies or meeting his friends in artisan coffee shops or dinge-bars.
Do not beg her, in your infinite neediness, to stay home from band practice.
Do not yell at her and tell her scornfully that the band is more important than you are (if it more important, you'll find out the hard way).
(also dont get so drunk that you embarrass your boyfriend or his bandmates) 23.
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.
