8 Reasons Why You Should Date An Art Student

8 Reasons Why You Should Date An Art Student

1. They will draw you.

If you’ve never been the subject of a painting you don’t know the thrill of being immortalized with an image. Your lover will want to draw you to make the moment last forever as it is captured on paper. In James Cameron’s Titanic Jack drew Rose as a young woman. When it was recovered she looked the same.

2. They will appreciate your beauty.

Whether you have Rubenesque curves or the delicate features of Venus you will be their Mona Lisa. No matter your image they will find the beauty in your heart and cherish it. They could spend a whole night looking into your eyes.

3. They have the best idea for drinks.

The art student will know that a fine wine or absinthe has been the subject of many works of art over the centuries. They will not only have the ideas for your party, an art student will arrive with a creative attire. They always have the best clothing designs, or at least the most noticeable.

4. They are passionate and creative.

The art student loves to study the human form, what better form than yours? They can get very creative in bed. Expect them to beg you for you for it — demand you. They will be direct and loving, but don’t hurt them. The art student is passionate but has passion for outbursts. They know how to convey their feelings with less than gentle gestures.

5. They know how to take the best pictures with you.

Who better to take selfies with than an art student?  No one does France as well as they can. The Louvre can wait while you take them to cafes to enjoy Paris. A selfie in front of the Eiffel Tower at night is much better than your friend’s of them on a couch.

    6. They are just as misunderstood as you.

    No great artists are ever really appreciated in their own time. They know just how misunderstood you are. They are great listeners who are often introverted. An artist understands your emotions. To create art is such an emotional experience, so their emotional intelligence is high.

    They accept you. An artist knows what’s it’s like to be an outcast, or reclusive. They are welcoming and open. They won’t mind your weirdness if you don’t mind their’s. They may be covered in paint half the time but it’s okay, it washes off and don’t get too close to them while their painting or you may end up messy. Neither of you will be wearing clothes then.

    7. They aren’t as dull as your Exs.

    There is never a dull moment when you date an art student. They will teach you that life is art, and how you live it should be meaningful. Whether it’s their philosophy on life or the way they live so fast there’s never a dull moment when you are with them. You’re in for a wild adventure, but no one ever had so much fun while never leaving the shire.

    8. They can paint you a picture, and then paint you a picture.

    Artists are dreamers and doers, they might paint you a picture of their feelings and then tell you the most wondrous of their dreams. They put up grand installations and ones that are so small you can barley see them. The bigger picture, as well as the smaller one is not unfamiliar to them.

    All of us are artists in our own way. We all grow up coloring with crayons and painting acrylic paintings on loose sheets of paper. Only the freest spirits will become art students. To date one is an experience you won’t soon forget.

    5 Powerful Ways for Building Fulfilling Relationships

    5 Powerful Ways for Building Fulfilling Relationships

    We all have relationships. We have acquaintances, relatives, colleagues, neighbors and friends. However, for a large percentage of us, many of these relationships are not fulfilling.

    They are unfulfilling because they lack real strength; and they lack real strength because they lack real depth.

    Unfortunately, in today’s society, we tend to have shallow, superficial relationships with others, and it’s extremely hard for this kind of relationships to provide anything more than faint satisfaction.

    I’d like to show you, based on my experience as a communication and confidence coach, how you can add a significant amount of depth, and thus strength, to your relationships and make your social life a whole lot more meaningful.

    Here’re 5 simple yet powerful ways for meaningful relationships building:

    1. Meet More People

    This is an apparent paradox, but the quality of the people you meet has considerably to do with the quantity of people you meet.

    If you don’t know a lot of people and you barely meet one or two new people every season of the year, considering the variety of individuals out there, you won’t meet very often people who are a good match with you in terms of personality, interests and values.

    And since this natural match plays a huge part in building strong relationships, you’ll just as seldom have the opportunity to develop strong relationships.

    Conversely, if you go out a lot, you meet a lot of new people and you constantly expand your social circle, you’re much more likely to meet people you match up well with, and these people have a tremendous potential to become good friends, reliable partners, etc.

    This is why it’s important to meet more people.

    2. Talk about the Things That Matter To You

    A relationship becomes the strongest when two people discover they believe in the same things and have similar interests. It’s these commonalities regarding values and interests that create the strongest emotional connection.

    I’ve noticed that many people keep conversations shallow. They talk about trivial stuff such as the weather, what’s on TV, the lives of various movie stars, but they rarely talk about what really matters to them in life. This is a mistake from my perspective, because it’s the perfect method for a relationship to not develop.

    Talk about the things that truly matter to you and give others a chance to know what you care about and what you believe in. If they believe in the same things and they care about the same things, they’ll eagerly let you know. Thus you’ll find meaningful common ground and you’ll feel more connected.

    3. Express Vulnerability

    Many people try to come off as perfect. They don’t talk about their failures, they hide their shortcomings and they never say anything that could embarrass them.

    This is all just a facade though. You may appear perfect to some, but you know you’re not perfect and they know that too. You’re only human and humans have flaws.

    However, by hiding your flaws, what you do succeed in is appearing cold and impersonal. You seem like a marble statue rather than a real person. And this makes it very hard for anyone to connect with you emotionally.

    Humans connect with other humans, not with ideals. Keep this in mind and don’t be afraid to let your vulnerability and your humanity show. This is what takes a relationship to the next level.

    4. Have Integrity

    Integrity, as I see it, is the alignment between your thoughts, your words and your actions. When you say what you think and you do what you said you’ll do, you have integrity.

    This is a crucial trait because if you have integrity, people can trust you. They can trust you to give them an honest feedback, even when it’s hard to shallow, and they can trust you to keep your promises.

    This trust is one of the central pillars of a strong relationship, both in your personal and your professional life. So, as challenging as it can be sometimes, always try to have integrity.

    Be honest with the people around you, even when this will initially hurt them. It’s more important for them to trust you than to not feel hurt. And always do what you promised. Even better, think twice before you promise anything, and only promise what you really can and you are willing to do.

    5. Be There for Others

    Another central pillar of strong relationships is support. Connections between people grow sturdy if they can rely on each other for support when it’s needed, whether that support means a few kind words or several massive actions.

    Of course, you can’t be there for everybody, all the time. Your time, energy and other resources are limited. But what you can do is identify the genuinely important people in your life and then seek to be there as much as possible, at least for them.

    Your support will help them practically, and it will comfort them emotionally; which makes one hell of a difference in a relationship.

    The Bottom Line

    With the right mindset and the right behavior, you can strengthen a wide range of relationships in your life and advance them as far as they can be advanced.

    And with strong relationships, not only that you feel more fulfilled, but you feel more connected to the entire world. You feel that your life has real value, you have more fun and you live in the moment. An entire world of opportunities opens up in front of you.

    Then your task is to simply walk through the open doors.
