Turn On or Turn Off: Musicians

I’ll admit I’ve entertained a few rockstar fantasies in my day. There’s something endearing about a man who can make music — I mean what woman hasn't wanted a song written just for her? But real life has taught me that the musician lifestyle isn’t one I’m really cut out for, but what about you? Ladies, tell me, is a man with a guitar and a sweet voice a turn on or turn off?

I dated a progressive metal / aspiring jazz drummer for a year. WORSE WASTE OF TIME EVER! He broke my heart, took my money, made promises he never kept and toyed with me like crazy, to eventually tell me I was getting in the way of his music. I encouraged him, supported him, cooked for him, took care of him, gave him my apartment key, drove him everywhere, went to his gigs, packed the drums, unpacked the drum, packed the drums, unpacked the drums millions of times, put up with his rehearsals, and emotional instability, and when I needed him for support, HE WAS NEVER THERE. I love him like crazy, but they just can't commit to anything but themselves. They're selfish pricks.

They don't have to be a rock star. :)

When I was younger, yes. But I soon realized that many of them are really self centered and won't settle down or make you the most important thing in their life.

Well I have no real option here. My bf is a jazz trumpet player. He's adorable because he's so into it and has all these hopes and dreams, but I have sensitive ears and the trumpet is LOUD. But he is a really hard worker (he has a "real" job, aside from trying very hard to get recognized as a musician) and he is the best boyfriend I could have asked for. I do prefer a jazz musician to a "rock star", though. I don't know. I guess I'm just biased.

Undecided. I don't really think I would want a musician for a boyfriend, but I once had a boyfriend who was in a band, and he wrote me a really cute song.

my broker plays the guitar during breaks in his day and i find that sexy. but only because he's an on-the-ball businessman first and a nurturing-his-sensual side musician second. that's the perfect proportion of responsible-to-sexy for me

Dated one. Didn't want to believe the stereotype with the drugs and DIE HARD devotion to their band over their mate(most times),but..well, let's just say I put my foot in my mouth. Won't be dating any rock musicians again. Learned a good lesson. On another note though, a guy who just plays the guitar/piano or other instrument for a hobbie is damn sexy.;)

My dad is a musician and while yea he is super laid back, he's also one of the sweetest most caring people I have ever met. I like that side of musicians. I think a lot of musically inclined men are more in touch with their sensitive side, which can help communication and such.

Honestly, I don't know what it is, but every single guy I've dated (except for one) was a musician. My current boyfriend is a musician. Despite some of the stereotypes about musicians being jerks/lazy bums, I've dated with some wonderful people.
