More often than not you’ll either find yourself sitting on a couch drinking free beers surrounded by smoking 19 year olds, or at the bar. And oh, turns out her friend is the lead singers GIRLFRIEND. One (which thank god I can’t find on line) was even on the radio in Vegas! I can’t remember the exact chorus but it goes something like “Missing you is like going days without water, not getting to hold you feels like torture, if this is what it’s like to be without your touch then I’ll seeee you in my dreaaaaaaaams.” I’m getting pangs of embarrassment as I type this, I used to play this song for people. You have to make small talk with other girlfriends of band members and there’s hardly anything to say.
(note, drink tickets are a plus) It’ll progressively get worse if they start recording, you’re going to have to put it on your Ipod. They’re probably going to cheat on you Picture this: You spend the night with the lead singer of a band. In college I had that guys freaking HEADSHOT autographed by my bed. You have to endure people telling you that the songs are super good, when you know that they’re lying.
Someday you may even find yourself in Germany where you kiss a lunatic who happens to be the lead singer of a band.
You have to stand behind a merch table in the back of a crowded club and dodge flying bodies from the mosh pit (true story, had bruises and got punched in the face).
If you want to see your boyfriend at all you have to go to everything, and if you miss just one you’re in a ton of trouble and clearly don’t understand his passions. They’re not going to be very good Let’s face it, Justin Timberlake is not knocking on your door (he may be knocking on my sisters, if all goes to plan, but still).
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.
I’ll be writing this article based on my personal experience as a single male musician.
It all seems so exciting, but believe me it gets old fast.
