    What It's Like Dating Someone In A Band

    It seems like a good idea at first. After a while, when the glitter and eye makeup begins to settle, you look around and think to yourself, "WHAT HAVE I DONE?"

    Look, no one can blame you for swooning.

    LIKE, SUPER DREAMY.

    Seriously, no one is blaming you.

    But I promise you, IT IS NOTHING LIKE THIS.

    Soon you will begin to know why dating a band member WAS A TERRIBLE IDEA.

    Your new SO already has three to five other girlfriends and/or boyfriends.

    You have to like their music NO MATTER WHAT.

    And you won't get the pleasure of bumping into Tim Riggins.

    Only when drunk with your friends will you admit your true feelings.

    Have fun meeting their bandmates for the first time.

    And you will listen to them talk about their music. Endlessly.

    You never really know what goes on at band practice.

    And the excuse, "Sorry babe, I can't tonight, I have band practice" becomes the bane of your existence.

    You will have to suffer through watching your honey sell merch.

    You're never allowed to "just listen" to music.

    You'll be drawn into obscure bands and genres, when really all you want is THIS:

    OR THIS

    You might end up with a regrettable tattoo.

    After a breakup, you might have to hear that band on the radio, and you're just like:

    ALWAYS LISTEN TO TINA. TINA KNOWS BEST.

    BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DON'T.
