If yes, what is your experience with them like as far as sharing your art life with each other Do you critique each other's work? If not, do you see yourself doing so? I don't really envision myself dating another creator. I'm pretty sure I'd get a complex if they were more successful. Now if they were in a field completely different than my own like dancing or theater then maybe. Perhaps it's for the best that I'm married to an accountant. I thought about this a long time ago- I thought it would be cool to be in a relationship with another artist; that they could relate to my issues, instead of me having to not even discuss my art life coz dating someone who isnt an artist just doesnt get it.
Because, you see, relationships need to be nurtured.
10 Things You Should Know Before Dating An Artist
You need to spend time together, grow together. But you also need inspiration. Watch people and things and see sunsets and the stars. You need to focus on your craft so you will have to lock yourself in a room for an hour or two. Now, having said thatů. Let them know how much you care about them and how much you appreciate their support. Your reclusive nature can be hard on a person. I love this article, Manders. The woman in the picture on my facebook page is my sister.
As things become more stable and under control with the writing, I think I can pick my head and look around and see the rest of the world around me. Sad really and it always ended badly. With regards to the writing not being easy on those closest to you: This helps with making the writing and other creative projects flow but can be a little hard on someone who cares about you.
We just get really sucked in. Sometimes our fictional realities seem more real that real life. I let my imagination run amuck and I come up with all these horrible scenarios and end up taking my fears out on those around me.

About amandamccarter I am an aspiring writer. I spend most of my time balancing my work, my personal life and my craft.
It is my hope that my craft and my work will one day be the same thing and I can spend more time on my personal life. I live with my boyfriend, my insane fluff ball of a cat, and two snakes.
In what little spare time I have, I play video games, read, knit, and help out with the local conventions. There's definitely a competitive edge to it, but it helps that I'm the more experienced writer, that she doesn't take it as seriously as I do, and that she writes in a genre I will never touch romance.
There's enough distance that we can celebrate each other's achievements. Now I'm wondering what a married pair of accountants would be like. If they worked at home, would the office take over every part of the house? I'm not all that interested in dating at all? But I will basically not date anyone who is oversensitive, pessimistic, extremely immature, has hateful ideologies such as racism or homophobia , is an extremist of any kind conservative christian, raging anti-theist, elitistic vegan, idgaf what it is, extremists are just a pain in the ass to deal with and I ain't letting my dick touch one , and I will not date one of my fans.
I also wouldn't want to date anyone outside of Scandinavia again. Some artists fall into the above. I think the only jobs I can't deal with a partner having would be military work, prostitution and illegal jobs.
If a partner does art, that's fine by me, as long as he lets me work in peace and doesn't try to wedge himself into my projects or drag me into his. And as long as he doesn't get all jealous or tries to compete with me. I'm not interested in competition or jealous bullcrap, I'm interested in personal development and the love for art. I can't do his personal development and he can't do mine so there is no place for competition.Dating an Artist?
Also get outta the bed, that's reserved for my laptop, tablet and all the cats I wanna have. My bf is the exact opposite of me. Where I'm creative and emotive, he's very logical and practical. He doesn't have any creative hobbies He did used to work for graphic design company though so he has his uses.
My boyfriend common law partner is the writer I work with. We're on the same page with pretty much everything as far as our project goes. We're highly competitive with each other in terms of individual success but we use that as fuel towards self improvement rather than letting our emotions run out of control. It's all down to attitude. All the boyfriends I was with previously had no self drive and didn't consider my art in any sort of regard. That didn't work for me.
Well, mine is a writer, and I like to write too, but I'm mostly a comic artist. We do a ton of collabs, roleplaying, proofreading each other's stuff, I draw him illustrations and he helps me with the dialogue in comics and how to portray his guest characters in my works. We can talk about our OCs all day long and ship them hard sometimes XD.
Dating an artist is hard
It's a lot of fun. And definitely less stressful to ask for proofreading and critique from him than any other friend for some reason, since there's infinite mutual respect, and he just knows how to handle my somewhat difficult personality. Even though we both like to write, we never competed wit heach other. We do support each other a whole lot though, whether promoting online or being inspiring t one another.
I'm definitely the more successful one, but I never saw him complaining that I'm doing better than him or any sort of jealousy. I literally asked him just now to be sure and he confirmed it: Not a comic creator or anything, but back in high school I rebounded from a previous relationship into a relationship with a guy who was an artist. One of those surrealist painters.
He was convinced that he was going to be the next renaissance revolution of our generation. Most of his paintings were crap. Some of them were good, but most of them just, conventionally speaking, weren't good - but of course, telling him that didn't mean anything, because you just "didn't get it". He draws My Little Pony fetish art on Tumblr now. Obviously it did not end well. I would be interested in someone who is different, maybe eccentric even.
Just someone I find to be an interesting individual, which I don't find very often. The people who I have found to be more interesting than "normal" tend to be artists.
I like weird and eccentric and if I were to be with someone who is also an artist, that wouldn't be an issue for me.
Really, I enjoy talking about story writing, manga artists I admire and the technical aspects to certain TV shows, movies, etc. Having someone who is also interested in such topics and understands them would be ideal for me. But I also like to talk about bigger topics such as world news or human behavior.
So really, I don't care if it's someone who is an artist or not but ideally someone who can appreciate it to some degree considering I draw. NOW, where is this thread about people dating on Tapastic?
I'm curious because that seems Unsplash, Maxime Bhm 1. We notice the details. We want to connect. We set high standards for ourselves. We have a weirdly high pain tolerance. We have a weird sense of humor. More From Thought Catalog. Why Did He Ghost Me? Why Good People Ghost:
