Whether you are looking to date around or find someone you can settle down with, having a drummer for a girlfriend can be quite the experience. They are fun, lively and have the skills to literally rock your world. If you want to find a girl whose energy and vitality matches your own, here are ten reasons why you should have a drummer for a girlfriend.
1. She is tough
It is safe to say that any girl who can play the drums is one tough cookie. A female drummer has an automatic aura of badassness about themselves. In a relationship you want a girl who can take care of herself. Chances are she has sculpted some toned arms from banging that drum, so she can pack a punch when needed.
2. She is extremely confident
Confidence is one of the most attractive qualities in any person. Half the battle to becoming a great drummer is having the attitude to go with it. A girl that can pull off that kind of attitude is unlikely to have self-esteem issues and will make great relationship material.
3. She’s not afraid to stand out
You don’t see a lot of female drummers on the music scene, so any woman who can rock the drums is not the type to follow the norm. She dances to the beat of her own drum… pun intended. Having a girl on your arm that isn’t afraid to stand out makes her all the more worth having.
4. She will rock your world
Rhythm is life… in music and in the bedroom. Passion and rhythm are keys to creating a great band and it can also be a great foundation for sexual chemistry. It’s no secret that guys are sexually driven creatures so having a girl who can rock you world is essential.
5. She knows her mind
Many women are content to look to their male partners when it comes to making decisions, most female drummers however like to make up their own mind. In a band, a drummer has to be able to listen to the music and trust their instincts. It’s no wonder then that even outside of the music a drummer is compelled to follow their gut decisions.
6. She is smart
Drummers make it look so easy, but it takes a lot of brain power to master the drums. You have to be able to read and write music as well as have the coordination and skill to create the epic beats that are the foundation of great music. In a relationship it is vital that you have more than just beauty; you need brains too.
7. She is a great communicator
To be a great drummer in a band requires a lot of communication. The drummer has to be able to set the tone for the rest of the band to follow. The practice and skills in communication that a lady-drummer has had to master to make her band awesome will make her an awesome girlfriend as well.
8. She is fun and impulsive
Chances are if you are dating a female drummer, then you are dating a wild-child with a rock-and-roll heart. With this free and spirited chick at your side you will always have new and adventurous dates with never a dull moment.
9. She’s in great shape
It takes a lot of physical energy to pound out a killer beat. This means that your drummer gal will be in great cardiovascular shape. When looking for a long-term relationship this is an important aspect to consider; you want a partner that can not only go the distance with you in life, but can keep up as well.
10. She is artistic
Musicians are artists in their own right. Not only do they create music with their instruments but many of them write and compose their own music as well. Chances are your female musical artist is right brain dominant. Meaning she is unique, creative and quirky. Everyone knows that anything that is one-of-a-kind is worth infinitely more than more of the same; this is especially true for awesome female drummers.
