That could be an issue with me. When I'm home, usually, either my radio or TV is on. My TV is only on if there's a certain show or sporting event I want to see. Otherwise, my radio is on.

So you're saying the person you're dating has to deal with this if there? What if there's a neutral agreement or you turn it off a while when you are there if you have company. Do you make all house guests listen to your music/watch your shows? If they aren't there - it doesn't matter what you're listening to/watching, just like at their place what they do is their choice.

And when I'm in my car, the radio is always on.

We all listen to what we want in the car and then we're courteous of those in our cars if we're not alone. However the person driving has the right to override. Maybe either give a bit more on the radio selection or shut it off and focus on the person?

If I'm with someone who always has earbuds buried into their skull because of totally different musical tastes, it would be a "Houston, we have a problem" moment.

Why? You're listening to your stuff - they are listening to theirs. Win-win if neither wants to put it aside.

I don't want a partner who is often zoned out into planet ipod, and act like we're not even in the same room.

At some point people have to go on with their day without having to have the other person on standby to pay attention to them. If someone's over a lot or living with you there has to be some allowance for the other person not to have to entertain you every minute.

Occasionally, I like going to a concert or to a night club to see a tribute band if they're doing the songs of a group I like. It would be harder to do if I'm with someone who is not into the same music. And vice versa.

Very few people are totally opposite with no overlap. If you are both into the band, go together. If you aren't, call friends or go alone. Not that big a deal.

I only listen to Hungarian music when I drive. No exceptions.

Actually when I was working in a cubicle office job about 1 year ago or so I worked around alot of young people. One in particular told me one day that she really liked my music (I had Peter Gunn - Henry Mancini music on). Jazz and classic two types of music that transend age.
