6 Dating Challenges Music Lovers Face, Like Crafting An Appropriate Sex Playlist.
Music lovers are a different breed. Those with meticulously curated record collections, perfectly manicured playlists, and concert calendars that stretch out months into the future take their sounds dead seriously, and are generally attracted to others who do the same. Although dating is a complicated dance no matter what, dating as a music lover presents a unique set of challenges, which begin the moment you bring up the subject of sonics.
As Nick Hornby writes in High Fidelity: “it’s not what you are like, it’s what you like,” and many music lovers apply this logic to their courtship process. The easiest place to meet someone with similar sensibilities is, of course, a concert, so you can at least be sure you have one artist in common. If that doesn’t pan out, and unless you’re dating online and can access a full run down of someone’s top 20, you never really know someone’s taste until you ask. After that, all bets are off. Here are six challenges music lovers face when trying to date:
1. When Someone Says They Listen To “Everything”
2. Finding Out Your Date Has Never Heard Of Your Favorite Artist(s)
3. When Your Date Mislabels Your Subcultural Affiliation
4. Navigating The Radio On Your First Car Ride Together
