I’ve almost dreaded writing this post in a way. Although it’s been on my mind a lot lately, I just didn’t know what to think of it. It seems, after much thought and consideration, that I am intrinsically drawn to musicians when it comes to dating. What prompted me to finally post this was a friend request that I received on Facebook yesterday. It was from Endymion. Yes, the one and only. Even though I haven’t seen him in a year or even spoken to him in a very long time, he evidently still remembers me.
Don’t worry. I’m not interested in anything with him. I’ve moved on to greener pastures. My main point here is that after I accepted his friend request I saw that he has just graduated from a guitar building school. That reminded me that he also is a musician. So I started thinking back and trying to remember how many musicians I’ve dated or been out with. Here’s my list so far.
- Rocker (you don’t know about him yet)
- O’Brother (another you don’t know about yet)
- Curly (and another…)
- Yankee Cowboy
- Bobblehead Nerd
- Smooth (Ok, I’ll just have to add all these guys to the book. I didn’t realize I had left out so many.)
- Mountain Man
So, I’d have to say that for me to have never consciously made an effort to date musicians, I sure as hell do date a lot of them. The more I think about it, the more I remember. Luckily, after Googling “attracted to musicians“, I found out that I’m not the only woman afflicted with this problem. Research even shows that women really are more attracted to musicians. I really like this article that lists the “Top 5 Reasons Why You’re Attracted to Guys (and Gals) in Bands.” It all makes sense to me now and I know that I’m not some kind of groupie freak who unknowingly seeks out musicians to date. Whew, what a relief.
After all this thinking back and remembering and researching, I’ve come to the conclusion that even though I never thought I had a “type” physically, I definitely have a “type” musically. So I guess it’s a good thing that Teacher is such an awesome musician, because evidently that just makes me want him even more, without even realizing it.
Also, I couldn’t end this post without reiterating my love of Willie Nelson, who as you all know, is an awesome musician. Could this have contributed to my love of musicians? Maybe. If so, then they all owe Willie a debt of gratitude.
Happy humping & play on!
