  • it matters in the sense that shared interests can really be an added bonus in a relationship. but of course there are plenty of interest to share outside of music. so as long as each can respect the other person's musical tastes then the differences should be of little consequence in the overall harmony of the relationship

  • I love music and singing, so it'd be awesome if we'd have the same taste and just sing in the car (or anywhere) together and make music that we both love. However if that's not the case it wouldn't be a dealbreaker

  • I said "A little" because music affects how someone acts. For example if some one listens to music that talks about drugs, sex, etc. And the other person listens to music about love, that might show through their actions. I personally love old RnB music like New Jack Swing (Mint Condition <3) and yes, I would love to have someone to jam with when listening to music and not argue over who can have the radio for themselves while one a road trip or something!!! hahahaha

    • Absolutely agree to this response. My ex always listened to depressing music and well... she was always depressed go figure. Technically that's a character trait but I do believe people can be affected by music.

  • I listen to stuff on the heavier side... power metal, and post hardcore are my favorites. Im fairly sure I've turned off some girls when I told them I liked that style, but for me personally doesn't matter much. I can survive car rides with whatever music since no one in my family listens to what I do, so most times they are playing what they like.

  • My boyfriend has an interesting taste in music, I don't mind any type of music, I'm into anything and nothing. I don't listen to anything on my own time, but when I'm with him it ranges from 60s music to bass to Gorillaz and just random songs he found, which I don't mind at all, it's a cute quirk he has, I also enjoy the music he puts on. He'll geek out about orchestra music as well, which is awesome.

  • I go to concerts a lot, and music is a big part of my life so I'd much prefer someone who somewhat shares my tastes. Also I just couldn't date someone who listened to country 24/7. That'd honestly be a deal breaker.

  • Personally, for me I don't really care considering I like all forms of music and even songs that I completely despise I will still be happy to sing along with and listen to out of kindness and respect. My best friend loves justin biebers baby, she listens to it almost every day and when I'm at hers or she is at mine we still have a good laugh singing along and doing really embarrasing dances that would be 10 times worse in public

  • To me it doesn't matter at all. If we have completely different tastes, we can just listen to our own stuff through headphones. It's at the bottom of the list of things I care about in a partner.

  • I would say it's matters a lot. Music is an important part of my life and I have my very own taste of it. I couldn't imagine to life without that music or only music that doesn't fit to my taste. That could become a huge problem

  • most people have no music taste. I don't mean as in they don't have preferences, I just mean that those preferences have little to do with MUSIC and a lot to do with IMAGE AND MARKETING a. k. a what's 'in'

  • It matters very little. If a couple won't get along because of music choices... 😂...

    They may need to re-evaluate priorities 😋

  • For me personally a lot. I get irritated rather quickly from music I don't like so when that is played a lot I'm not the nicest person. Won't work if my SO had a very different taste.

  • It depends if your partner plays their music aloud often. When they wake up for example

  • It matters a lot to me. I love music and if you can appreciate my taste in music but still have some differences so you can broaden my horizon and I do yours, I'm half in love with you already.
    I'm super into trap and hip hop, but also alternative and synthwave and similar genres but a lot of guys I know don't like a lot of my favourite artists. They won't even listen to music by women if it's not trap, so it was a huge turn on when I found out a friend of mine liked trap, but also liked Lorde, Melanie Martinez, Oh Wonder, Pink, and some other of my favourite artists

  • Honestly as long as we can share the radio and each pick some songs, it's fine. But if my boyfriend loves metal, I think it'd be rude to make him listen to selena gomez the whole car ride, vice versa. Make a playlist and shuffle it. You both might find out some new songs you both like.

  • I'd love to have someone who can sit down and listen to the songs that I love. It's unfortunate that a lot of women my age don't like the same music. I spend my time listening to artists like Loreena Mckennitt, Kyle Landry, Future World and really anything with piano.

  • Music taste shouldn't play a part, but, if you want to maybe go to a concert as a date, you might want to think about where you'll go that you both can enjoy, right?
