10 Reasons You Should Date A Guitarist

We always have preferences when you go out to date someone. Dating, however, could go beyond just dating anyone but dating the right person that represents the image you have in your mind. Being with a guitarist could mean a lot to your personality. You understand music more than you ever have, and it is spectacular watching a guitarist strum their guitar. Here are some reasons why you should date a guitarist.

1. They always have a cute tattoo

Their appearance is always expressive. They are not trying to conform to a conventional approach when grooming or speaking. And, yes, they will always have a cute tattoo to make that statement of what they are count.

It is hard to stop being a guitarist if they started out as one. The music in them and what they represent will always stick. A guitar will always have a special place in their heart. You have to learn to be a part of such world.

3. They are unconventional

They don’t do a 9-5 day job, and will they won’t be hanging around people who do. They have friends who live for the stage. They are not trying to conform to societal standards – they are setting societal standards.

4. They are always talking about music and other guitarist

Don’t expect them to be talking about bankers or politicians. They live for the music and most of what they will be talking about is the music and other guitarist like Santana, Tom Morello, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Slash and more. They will have you listen to their opinion of what being a guitarist means to them.

5. They have a high price on their guitar

They value their guitar. And this goes beyond the amount of money they pay for their equipment. Their addiction may be spending the money they make on their guitars. You have to make sure you are as valued as their guitars.

6. They have a way with their hands

The truth is that those hands of theirs can be magical. Their hands do have a special touch. There is a way they strum the guitar that is so sexually appealing that it becomes attractive. And what sound that is born with their hands can be inspired by you.

7. They can become successful

If they are really good with the guitar and play for the right band, they could become really successful. Being popular could mean that you have something extra to contend with when trying to get their attention or acceptance. Yet wouldn’t love to be a part of their success?

If you have another guitarist or musician that excites you, you have to shove them to second on the list. You have to make the guitarist you date the number one musician on your list. They do need your support and need you to be their number one fan. And this is so cool if you are a music lover.

9. They will make you love music more

They are always making sounds and listening to sounds. Spending time with them means that you will always have to listen to a lot of sounds whether you like it or not. And the more you listen to the sounds they surround themselves with the more you become absorbed in their music and appreciate it.

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

Some people will have a rain cloud hanging over them, no matter what the weather is outside. Their negative attitude is toxic to your own moods, and you probably feel like there is little you can do about it.

But that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

If you want to effectively deal with negative people and be a champion of positivity, then your best route is to take definite action through some of the steps below.

1. Limit the time you spend with them.

First, let’s get this out of the way. You can be more positive than a cartoon sponge, but even your enthusiasm has a chance of being afflicted by the constant negativity of a friend.

In fact, negativity has been proven to damage your health physically, making you vulnerable to high levels of stress and even cardiac disease. There’s no reason to get hurt because of someone else’s bad mood.

Though this may be a little tricky depending on your situation, working to spend slightly less time around negative people will keep your own spirits from slipping as well.

2. Speak up for yourself.

Don’t just absorb the comments that you are being bombarded with, especially if they are about you. It’s wise to be quick to listen and slow to speak, but being too quiet can give the person the impression that you are accepting what’s being said.

3. Don’t pretend that their behavior is “OK.”

This is an easy trap to fall into. Point out to the person that their constant negativity isn’t a good thing. We don’t want to do this because it’s far easier to let someone sit in their woes, and we’d rather just stay out of it.

But if you want the best for this person, avoid giving the false impression that their negativity is normal.

4. Don’t make their problems your problems.

Though I consider empathy a gift, it can be a dangerous thing. When we hear the complaints of a friend or family member, we typically start to take on their burdens with them.

This is a bad habit to get into, especially if this is a person who is almost exclusively negative. These types of people are prone to embellishing and altering a story in order to gain sympathy.

Why else would they be sharing this with you?

5. Change the subject.

When you suspect that a conversation is starting to take a turn for the negative, be a champion of positivity by changing the subject. Of course, you have to do this without ignoring what the other person said.

Acknowledge their comment, but move the conversation forward before the euphoric pleasure gained from complaining takes hold of either of you.

6. Talk about solutions, not problems.

Sometimes, changing the subject isn’t an option if you want to deal with negative people, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be positive.

I know that when someone begins dumping complaints on me, I have a hard time knowing exactly what to say. The key is to measure your responses as solution-based.

You can do this by asking questions like, “Well, how could this be resolved?” or, “How do you think they feel about it?”

Use discernment to find an appropriate response that will help your friend manage their perspectives.

7. Leave them behind.

Sadly, there are times when we have to move on without these friends, especially if you have exhausted your best efforts toward building a positive relationship.

If this person is a family member, you can still have a functioning relationship with them, of course, but you may still have to limit the influence they have over your wellbeing.

That being said, what are some steps you’ve taken to deal with negative people? Let us know in the comments.
