My husband dated a number of girls before me, and he says.
“I never even contemplated dating a metal chick, because all the ones I met were scody.
” what I hear is “Things seem perfect, but I’m starting to have doubts”.
People tend to embrace metal because the music speaks to part of them – it becomes a manifestation of who they are and what they believe in. Don’t do that, because it’s like you’re calling her indie shit, since her music is as much a part of her as metal is a part of you.
We “get” each other, in part because we both hear ourselves in the music, so we feel like we knew each other before we even met.
Some of the best nights of my life were at gigs and festivals – I can’t imagine not being able to share that with someone.
Trust me, she’s a girl, she will think this is the most amazing gift ever.
Let her make a mix tape for you, full of indie shit, and see if you can When you hear a song out of context, and you’re not listening, you are bound to think its shit.
So my question is, metalheads and non-metalheads, does it work? So that was OK, but it was high school so it all fell apart in a majorly bad way.
I knew metal would always be a big part of my life and I wanted someone to share that with.
Having dated (and married) a metalhead, I would never reconsider this decision (and it a conscious decision).
Your girlfriend obviously loves music too, and she probably feels the same way about her indie music. Feel free to call it “indie shit” here, though, because I 100% agree.
You shouldn’t give up on your girl because she doesn’t like metal, but you should call it quits if she actually doesn’t get , and what you stand for.
As time went on, we just spent less and less time together as my interests went in one direction and his in another.
