  • I would say that I probably wouldn't date someone who disliked music because music releases serotonin in the brain when you listen to it. If you dislike music, then there is probably something fundamentally wrong with your brain if you don't feel that release of serotonin when you listen to it. But if you are one of those people who doesn't particularly love music, but can still appreciate well-written songs and can sill go out on the weekends ad dance and have fun at a bar or club where the societal expectation is to listen to music, then I'd be fine with that. I'd be perfectly fine dating a guy who always let me listen to whatever I wanted because he had no particular preference.

    I met a guy last night at a club who used that BS excuse "I like everything" when my friend asked him what kind of music he listens to. I told him this was a cop out because you either don't listen to music at all or you have a certain kind or genre that you listen to the majority of the time. If you're going to say you like listening to music, then tell me what kind you like. If that's not the kind I listen to, that's fine, but don't sit there and tell me you like all kinds equally because nobody likes all kinds equally, this conversation is going nowhere, and I probably wasn't interested in you to begin with, so you've just made it so I don't want to talk to you as a person anymore.

      ^^ this, it's why I say I like all genres but generally listen to rock and 80s.

    • 4d

      @19magic
      80s rock is a great go-to genre of music for people who generally do listen to a wide variety. Anybody who was alive during the 80 knows a ton of songs because it had huge air time and is known to be the golden era of rock. Even most millennials know a few 80s songs because our parents and older siblings listened to it when we were young. And even if 80s isn't your favorite genre, it's a good place to start a conversation with because you can easily branch off into a different conversation from there.

  • I've dated a guy in the past who didn't like music. It was okay, but I don't know if I would do that again. I love music, I like having it on in the background in my home. I like listening to music a lot. I like dancing to it and I like singing to it in the car.

    So for me, music is an important part of my life. I always felt weird about listening to music near him because I knew he didn't really care for it.

  • If they hated music to the point where they were constantly complaining about whatever music was playing or I wasn't even allowed to listen to music in the car or at a party then no. That would be incredibly annoying. If they hate music they can at least try to tolerate it.

  • If he doesn't mind me listening to it when I'm cleaning; I would.

    My music isn't on full blast but loud enough so I can hear it while I'm doing things. Moving from room to room generally.

    Now, if he has an issue with that... >.> He can put in ear plugs and deal.

  • I think my vote went to the wrong one. I would say no! Music inspires a lot of my art and I could not be with someone who does not appreciate any type of art. Doesn't have to be something I would listen to, but it would have to be something that inspires them.

  • I wouldn't care. As long as it don't infringes on my rights to make music. I view what I do as a lifelong career. He has his likes and I have mine. The reality is everybody won't like the same thing.

      "Baritone" is also sometimes used to describe a male range in between Tenor and Bass.

    • 4d

      Thanks.
      Thats awesome that you sing and your boyfriend is in a metal band.
      Me, I tried to play Bass Guitar, and if it was anyone else with the teacher I had (The man is the best damn blues bassist I've ever met.) they would have learned.
      Too bad I'm pretty much incapable of learning an instument.

  • I only say no because I can't possibly fathom someone not listening to music at all. There are so many genres that are out there, to not listen to something would make me wonder if the person had emotions at all.

  • I never thought about it. After a quick google you discover, there are people who hate music,
    Including Freud lol. It's something scientists call Musical Anhedonia. Anhedonia can be
    a clinical feature of depression, schizophrenia, and some other mental illnesses.
    'The inability to experience pleasure from activities usually found enjoyable,
    e. g. exercise, hobbies, music, sexual activities or social interactions'.
    If someone I was interested in really hated music, they could have other problems too.
    so . no .

      How can a person that likes art dislike music? Music is a form of art, so that makes definitely no sense.

    • 7h

      "can anyone dislike music?" Well, that's why I called this a stupid question.
      But I know that there are many people who do not like music.

  • How we would be able to go out and have fun if he doesn't like music? It would be impossible.
    So no, I wouldn't date someone who doesn't like it.

  • Music is very important to me: listening, learning, writing, recording, and performing. It's not how I make a living, but I'm very serious about it. Except for professional musicians, music scholars, and people that just really know their shit, most people don't seem to consider it nearly as important as I do.

    If I were dating, I couldn't rule out people who didn't consider it as important as I do; it would be very limiting if I did. Still, I couldn't date someone who was apathetic; it's too important to me. And I would doubt the humanity of someone who actively hated music.

    That said, a woman who knew as much or more than me, or who was a really accomplished musician or songwriter: huge bonus points!

  • I don't believe such a person exists, I think it is impossible. There are so many genres of music and so many ways it is used. there's music in movies (scores), video games, there is rock, pop, dance, rap, country, jazz, blues, christian, new age classical, reggae, and sub genres of them as well as many others. There is even music in church. I will believe you if they have been exposed to at least what i have listed and still do not like music. Music isn't just entertainment, it's embedded into our society. Musical chairs, dancing, national anthems, sports events,.. I could go on,,, It really baffles me, that people can make that claim. If you are such a person, I would love to hear your argument and stance.

  • I don't think I'd care too much.

    And, to be honest, disliking the same kind of music I dislike is more important than liking the same music I like in the long run.
