Now that I'm trying to get back into dating, these questions happen. Partly stereotype and partly lack of appeal of that lifestyle, but I generally assume a musician wouldn't be the right fit for me. I'm also a complete nerd with a political activism/nonprofit background and I'm trying to get into medical school, so I (perhaps unfairly) wonder what on earth Mr. "I'm a producer and in a band" and I would have in common in the first place. It's not impossible, it just seems unlikely. Also, I guess I assume I'm not the type of woman someone like that would typically be chasing after.
Admittedly, I view classical/orchestral musicians differently because the experience and lifestyles are often different in their necessity.
What do you think, especially the ladies?

Is music a hobby or a lifestyle?
If someone plays for fun and not for a living, that is fine. I have dated a woman who does that.
If a lifestyle, there is a real problem with musicians. They either have not enough money or too much money too fast. Both situations have their own problems.
Are you asking this because you have met and are considering dating a musician? It is a hard career to make it in. I do have a musician friend who has had an established career since he was 25 and he can even pack a theatre. Even so, he rarely makes over 50K in a year. His wife is a school teacher and together they do fine. I know others who have never really made anything at it and they tried to "go pro". I know another guy who has helped produce 4 platinum albums with a famous band and he does well, but he has lots of other stuff going on the side in the sound industry.

I wouldn't care. I think it's cool and I like that he has a job or hobby in the field of art, which I have and love as well.
