Dating a musician is one interesting experience that you don’t want to miss out on. This is true irrespective of the fact that it is often said that musicians live a busy and flamboyant life and as such, usually find it difficult to maintain a healthy relationship.
That is partially true but is dependent on the person, not the career. Being in fame and wealth only accentuates an inert trait already possessed by an individual, however, musicians have unique brains that work in a positive way.
They are quite sensitive (more than non-musicians), when it comes to making their relationship work out, and seeing to the happiness of their partner.
Furthermore, these set of people are often charming, attractive, and have “over the roof” styles. If you are still contemplating on saying yes to that drummer or singer, here’s a sneak peek of some of the amazing things about dating a musician.
Facts About Dating A Musician
1. Musicians are Super Talented
Creating good music is a skill, not everyone can develop. According to experts who say a human has at least seven potential talents, an active musician explains that he can eventually activate the other talents in a matter of time. These people know how to touch the soul through coordinated sounds. They know how to play several musical instruments; guitar, keyboard, drums, harmonica, saxophone, and the list goes on.
The best part is, they can also compose. To add to all of that, musicians are creative event planners. Due to exposure to so many tours, musicians have a wider perspective about events, life and handling people generally. Most musicians are also good at multi-tasking and being around them will trigger your other talents to be unleashed as well.
2. They Write Songs for You
These creative minds do not always need to be emotionally balanced to write songs. They write in whatever mood they find them self in and it reflects in their songs. Most times when in the “love mood”, they come up with powerful lyrics, such that if the songs were actually meant for you, they will sweep you off your feet. Imagine for a second that Flavour N’abania is your boyfriend or Tiwa Savage, your wife. The romantic words that their songs carry are enough to make you love them forever.

For a few Nigerian musicians who play with a band, they have to coordinate with each other so that whatever music they produce must be perfect. Even those who do digital recording still need to work with the producer and studio engineer to put the lyrics, instrumentals and sound in order.
