Have you ever driven someone away with music?Page 1 of 6    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
You know, I swear to this day I drove away a girlfriend with Faith No More's "The Real Thing" back when it came out. I don't know what it is, but I get obsessive for a time when I find an album or band that I really like. And if the woman I'm dating can't stand the types of music I listen to, our relationship doesn't seem to last long...

Anyone else like this?

You know, if they don't like your music, chances are they won't like you either! You are who you are, and if you worry about your musical tastes scaring someone off, then you probably shouldn't be with them in the first place.

I believe that people that enjoy my copmpany are the people that enjoy the same things that I enjoy. And if they decided that they don't like to listen to NIN or Toby Keith (yeah, my tastes go all over the board!) then they can go find someone else!

Hi Karl...

Driving your girlfriend away because of the music you like? hmmmm now do you play it 24 -7 at over 85 db...? Question is when, where, how often, how long, and how loud do you play it...

Of course there could of been something else that led to the breakup...

Answer to your question -I have never driven anyone away with my music....:)

O:)

I've been driven away and/or warned off from getting too close to someone due to music taste incompatibilities. I've also been drawn into relationships based mainly (if not solely) on music taste similarities.
I know this much about my future - I don't belong with any man who doesn't LOVE music - if music is unimportant to him he'd never "get me"/we'd never "get each other".

i don't think i have ever driven a woman away by my affinity for metal music but i have had many arguments over the radio with previous ones :P

My girlfriend now is into metal so its something that i don't have to worry about anymore

I don't think I've ever done this to anybody - but a girl I dated in college who refused to listen to anything except two bands: Led Zepplin, and The Beatles. I seriously hate both bands.
I can say although this didn't exactly drive me away, it certainly didn't help matters.

I drove a date away with my knowledge of music and art history. If they arent open to discussions, including academic level ones, on those kinds of things, well... there will be a lot less to talk about.

As far as a potential girlfriend? No.

But I remember when I was a teenager. Me and my friends were hanging out getting stoned (I don't do that anymore!) and listening to music. There was one guy that we didn't like who always invited himself to people's parties, and he was there. I used to have a copy of John & Yoko's "Unfinished Music Vol.2 - Life With The Lions". I'd put it on and we'd play the Yoko track "Cambridge 1969", real loud, and we'd pretend it was the best music ever. 23 minutes of Yoko screaming to feedback would always clear the room of unwanted pests. Either that or I'd play some Ravi Shankar. That kid loved Lynyrd Skynyrd, so you can imagine how we'd react to Yoko or Ravi.

I've been driven away by music. And I've also done the driving.
Music being an important part of my life. I don't want to spend time with a significant other who is listening to complete crap that gives me a headache. The situation is just nasty for all.

Then on the other hand. I've chased away potentials because they couldn't handle how real music works. If it wasn't banjo or something with the same two measures over and over again. It wasn't their music. They didn't want to be around it.

Most of the time music determines lifestyle. As a metalhead I attend local shows. If the guy I was with didn't want to go.. well thats no fun. Unless you are souless your music kinda determines the kind of person you are with. The kind of music you listen to can be a factor in every single thing you do. So why not finding your "soul mate"?

I sometimes wonder if my taste in music has been a factor in my ongoing singularity. But I just can't help it if most popular music sounds empty and boring to me. I mostly listen to death/black metal because it just sounds better to me than most other forms of music. Despite this, I really don't live a "metal lifestyle" or anything like that. I don't go out to very many shows and I really don't spend massive amounts of time listening to music either. For me, some nice quiet reading is actually much more preferable than loud music. Although when the need hits me, I do like to crank it up, usually to the dismay of my neighbors.
It is true that a person's taste in music is often a reflection of their inner self. With that in mind, I don't think it is the music that drives people away. I think it has more to do with why a person likes the type of music that they do.

I was driven away from music. I like classic rock, hard rock ya know. I would get with someone that is not into rock and is into rap or hip hop or something I don't like, then it kills it for me

all that came to mind was

"you want it all but you can't have it".

I loved Faith No More back in the day. And I agree with the other posters - if music is important to you then you must find someone with compatible music tastes or you are doomed to relationship disaster.

Hence the reason im single and looking only for the one that we can relate on a music level or she can handle the fact of how it important it is to me.

I don't know if driven away is the case but, since I listen to such a wide range of music I may overwhelm most with my varied musical taste. There is really only two types of music, good and bad. All genres can be great and extremely bad. Any person that wants to have a relationship with me must be be a music lover.

Indeed. My taste reflects rock 1964-1995,although I can tolerate more musical types than 20 years ago.Even if the music is questionable,at least get the best sound reproduction..no Schucks speakers in your car. The music isn't the biggest impediment..it weekend 420 time.lol lol

Yes, indeed. Drove an 'ex' to the bus station to J.Geils' "Love Stinks" many years ago. But I suppose this thread is not about that, huh ??

I dont think that musical tastes have to determine one's lifestyle. But I do think that at least being able to tolerate the music each other likes is important. Who wants to fight over the radio/CD player on road trips?
