LOL you know you cant ask this in a crowd where most arent artistic , especially on a professional level.. Unless you're a true artist you'll never understand it, the drive, the sacrifice required, the entire being of an artist. The responses you'll get are the same as the interactions of daily life with those who dont live a creative lifestyle. They just dont understand. And its not their fault, its just so far out of the norm.. makes it very difficult to relate.

I have a hard time relating to people who arent creative with a passion , not in daily life but in a relationship. It's more difficult than one would imagine.


This is completely true. While I -can- be with a non-artist; my most fulfilling relationships were always with fellow artists. There's just something "missing" in those that don't do art - it's like the creative energy and expression and fulfillment that we get out of creating things is "missing" in them, but then gets filtered through relationships, so that a lot of them put an over-importance on the relationship itself to make up with the lack of fulfillment that they get from a lack of creative output.

(and by "artists" I'm including musicians and writers as well, since the creative drive is the same)

My job is art, my side jobs/freelance are art, and I do art on the side. I draw, paint, create music, write, do photography, program and design games, and other stuff I'm forgetting at the moment - all for a living and as a hobby. So I pretty much live and breathe the various arts. And like other people have said, I get so into stuff that I can disappear for more than a day and forget to eat and drink anything.

heARTTeacher- I can 'draw" a similar picture with my love of music.
Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder.
To open up your chances, open your mind to the different meanings of art and take a chance.
Life is what you make it and you hold the canvas.

abmccray- Well, just speaking for myself, if I dedicated that much time to this forum, I would stay single FOREVER.
Even if a thread is old, the point and the debate can still be relevant and interesting.

The point is that it's pointless to reply to someone 5 years later since the chances they'll read it is close to nill unless you personally message them. When a thread is 3+ pages long, even, it's normally pointless to reply to the original post because chances are, someone has already said what you've said multiple times over. You typically should only be replying to the last few posts or posts in the last couple of pages for that reason.
