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

13 Signs You Date A Boy In A Band
Ben Grant

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?

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
