13 Signs You Date A Boy In A Band

13 Signs You Date A Boy In A Band

Every young girl wanted to date a boy in a band, and now you're living that dream.

1. He randomly picks up an instrument at any given time when he's around you

He probably did it the first time you guys hung out, the first date, etc. and he's still constantly playing instruments around you. And you don't mind at all. He's good at it, he may play some special songs for you, and he's doing what he needs to (practice makes perfect, eh?).

2. He plays multiple instruments

Bass, drums, guitar, ukelele, keyboard/piano, violin, harmonica, banjo, singing, etc. etc.

3. He's tried showing you how to play his instruments

And even though you (probably) suck at playing any of them, he still thinks it's cute and appreciates that you do let him try to show you how to play sometimes.

4. You've been to their band practices at least once (or multiple times)

Sometimes you're there cheering them on, nodding your head, maybe dancing or singing along, but other times you just sit in the corner staring at your phone. But either way, you're happy just to be there and see your guy do one of the things he love doing.

5. You've listened to their music countless times

And probably know every line and melody. And catch yourself singing or dancing along.

6. And probably own some version of their music (ex. CD, digital file, online, etc.)

And you've got it on easy access in case you wanna play their tunes or show other people your boyfriend's band.

7. You try to go to as many of their shows as possible

And you're front row, basically every time, too. Probably sporting some merch, taking some cool pictures of them, sticking around to help before and after the set, hyping up friends to go see them, and having a little too much fun singing and dancing along in the crowd.

8. And you've helped their band set up or pack up after a show

If they need help bringing instruments inside and other necessary equipment, you always offer to help, even if it's just carrying the drumsticks. Same for when they're packing up after they've finished playing.

9. He gets excited when he tells you about new music his band is working on

And you can't wait to hear him share some demos or listen to it at the next band practice.

10. Or when they get a new gig

And you can't help but get excited too because it means another show you get to go to and it shows their band is getting more and more popular.

11. He's always listening to music

In the car, in his room, in the shower; when he's happy, when he's sad, when he's upset, when he needs motivation. You'll almost always catch him listening (or singing/humming) some sort of tune.

12. And always showing you new music

Even if you don't like some of the songs, it's still nice to know he thinks of you to certain songs, and the songs he does show you that you like, you absolutely end up loving them.

13. You have to deal with girls hitting on him at shows (because he's in a band AND super cute and talented)

And you'll always make a point to interject and make sure they know he's already taken.


Dating a boy in a band can be stressful sometimes, but overall you love every second of it and know that he does, too. And maybe you're even their band's number one fan, or close at least, right?

10 TV Shows That Can Replace 'The Office' On Netflix By 2021



Netflix has done it again. Created a mass panic. But this time the reason is not that "Friends" is being taken down or renewed for a giant price.

No, this time it is much worse.

Netflix has said in just TWO short years, it is likely NBC will be taking 'The Office' down. I know, it is unthinkable. What else are we suppose to rewatch a hundred times and quote endlessly? You cannot simply take Michael Scott off of Netflix.

The best thing to ever happen was for Netflix to put "The Office", they made it popular again. And you @ me on that. But now they are removing it. I guess we will just have to watch other shows now.

Find other shows on Netflix to watch and to fill the void that NBC is creating for us.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
