Five Worse Professions To Date Than Musician

They may be sexy as hell, but musicians are notoriously impossible to date. They sleep all day and party all night, and travel around for months on end, often in the company of drugs, alcohol, and eager women. Take issue with a flirtatious gesture made towards a female audience member and you're likely to hear "Gotta keep the fans happy, babe. It's just part of the job". The band takes priority over any plans you may have made, and you suddenly find yourself struggling to maintain an even keel with five dudes instead of one, lest you be labeled (gasp) a "Yoko."

That said, there are actually worse professions to date, five of which Rocks Off has listed below. Are we making gross generalizations? Absolutely. And we have no doubt there are individuals employed in each of these fields who are wonderful, loving, devoted boyfriends, husbands, and fathers. But we also know that if all of these guys were on their best behavior, these industries never would have earned a reputation to begin with.

Free live music and mingling with famous musicians certainly seems glamorous. But the truth is it's still a job, one that requires a profound appreciation and knowledge of music coupled with workaholic stamina very few can sustain. Nights are spent at concerts and bars, sometimes four or five times a week, no doubt a contributing factor to the high rate of alcoholism common among the profession. And weekends? Forget about it.

Like any profession requiring such selfless dedication, romantic interests often come to the realization that everything - including relationships - will always take a back seat to the job.


COP

Take The Departed for example, a classic tale of good cop, bad cop, and the hot chick sleeping with them both. Poor, sexy good cop with heart of gold is worn down to a weepy, pill-popping mess from his daily interaction with lowlifes, while beddable bad cop has plenty of witty asides and money for towering chocolate desserts but can't get it up due to mental strain of morally bankrupt side job as informant for sociopathic mob boss. Both get shot and die. Hot chick sleeps alone. Catch our drift?

It's a high-stress job where everyone's got a gun and some sort of mental hangup - not exactly an environment conducive to relationships. And the power trip derived from having the authority to tell others what to do isn't all that attractive either.

Amazing how this turned to be... SEXIST! As if women musicians don't have the same issues of guys complaining why there are all these dudes drooling over you -.- :)

These are all servants of us musicians. Well the bad cops anyhow.  Of course dating anyone down one on the rung is worse.

It's hard to post links in the comments here, so I'll just give you directions:

Go to Google; type in the phrase "wiki byline"; and click on and read the first link that comes up. This is an excellent starting point for you in what I hope will be fruitful attempt to stop asking stupid fucking questions.

I hear scientists should be on this list. Moody, obsessive, prone to outbursts. But what would I know?
