Basing relationship prospects on musical taste is stupid.
What makes half of you 'friend-zoned' dudes think that you deserve the hot indie chick? Get over this "scotty pilgrim" complex of pining over the manic pixie dream girl.
It's never actually about the music, it's always about how they appear because they 'listen' to that music.
Chicks that like bad music suck dick just as good, probably better.
This, my gf of 10 years listens to nothing but Top 40 pleb shit and we practically have to sit in different rooms when we want to listen to the music we like, but she's a fucking amazing person and despite appearing totally normie on the outside and in her tastes in music/movies/websites etc., she's the most sexually depraved fucker I know, 4chan-tier kinky, it's brilliant
ehhhh I'm not so sure. I really need my partner to be on my level in terms of intelligence and taste. Arrogant? I guess so, but I can't get into someone I don't respect as an equal or better. I've only ever dated people I respect.
When I'm 7 years into a marriage and we're both coming home tired from our jobs, I don't want to be struggling to show interest on the minutia of his work day, I want to talk about something that excites or at least interests the both of us. It can be about our friends in common, it can be about weekend plans, and it can be about a very active and rich cultural pool in which there's always a new release to recommend or a hidden gem from the past to uncover. The more the better, really
any girl that's dumb enough to like music marketed towards her is not worth your attention. that's a fact. truth is, most people on here have shit taste and want to find a girl who likes the same overmarketed "cool-kid-music" trash as them, and that's normal. but once you understand anything about the bigger picture of music, you'll understand why having a reasonable perspective and interest in art is VITAL in someone who you will share intimate feelings with.
hot indie chicks fucking suck. my gf likes swans and other /mu/ core stuff but still has music at the bottom of her priorities and that makes all the difference in making her a 10x more adept person than me
Ok, we get it. You're pretending to be a well adjusted adult in a healthy relationship while trying to make everyone feel dumb when in reality your life is such shit that you have to resort to creating this false illusion that no one is buying.
tfw no any gf
tfw gf wont improve anything
tfw dont like myself
All I care about is that she can respect my taste and collection.
If she can at least jam along to a few favorite tunes, it's a bonus.
Fuck that. They tend to have flatter asses and saggy tits anyway.
I fell in love with a /mu/tand once because of his musical taste, and musical talent. He was pretty beautiful too. He doesn't post anymore, but maybe he lurks. *sigh* oh Mark
my ex used to be that kind of girl. she is fat as fuck tho. typical pseudo-intellectual bitch. her fav band is pink floyd and she was like "you better listen to this while high hun".
it's fucking hard enough to find someone you can get along with and enjoy the company of without dragging trivialities of the particulars of taste in art/movies/tv/vidya/etc.
people that set such trivial artificial limits on possible long-term relationships will get matched with people just as narrow-minded as they are, or screen everybody out by the end - and deserve to the extra free time to ponder why they're alone
the arts play a major role in my life and i couldn't imagine spending my life with someone who didn't have the same relationship to them. however her particular tastes matter far less to me than her ability to speak intelligently on them. i'd rather be with someone i could have great musical conversations with even if we ultimately disagreed than an idiot who shares my exact taste.
The worst girl possible is the one that starts listening the same shit you do just because.
I wasn't talking for personal experience, and i was refering to girls that change favorite bands or anything depending of the person they're dating. To me it just comes as a bland and insecure personality. You can tell when someone listen something just to fit in.
I guess so yeah. I suppose the difference is whether or not it's phony. But then, phoniness is universally repugnant and covers all categories, including and up to excessive makeup and compartmentalizing her social circles.
Grew up in several Southern Baptist churches, can fully deny this. Southern Baptists are crotchety old fucks who only like Hymns and Elvis, which I guess sorta fits under doo wop sometimes.
I wish I was raised Catholic
i feel sorry for you, i'd switch places with you but lmao that won't happen
i know a bunch of girls into all your hipster shit but i don't into women
they're the ones that i heard about NMH from 2bh
