I've been thinking about my relationship with my girlfriend and my guitar... hehe, she (my girl) is always saying me that I spend more time with my JEM than with she... and that's true... In fact I think I spend almost the double time with my guitar so sometimes she is sad and angry about this situation. I'm terribly sorry but I love music and I work in music so I NEED to play almost all day, and I don't know how to explain it to my girlfriend...

some got the same problem?? how can you do a normal life with girlfriend and guitar ?? Do you think I'm crazy ??? (probably yes laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif)

I had to choose between dating a girl and my guitar, and I told her I was too busy to dating. If it was someone I really liked I would find the time for her, but untill (or if) I do my guitar and studies get the best of me.

But guess who gets the rest of me? laugh.gif laugh.gif (sorry for qouting a Sophie Elis Bextor song there) wink.gif unsure.gif

Haha Juan, i know exactly what you mean ..!! when i had a girlfriend 2 years ago she played guitar too .. so i think i was a bit lucky with that because she did understand it (littlebit), but if i picked up the guitar when i was with her, it was always .. YOU DONT HAVE TIME FOR MEEEE, AND YOU KEEP PLAYINGGG bleeeeeeee sad.gif so girls dont understand it after all, hahahaha.

Difficult Juan.. i dont know a solution so they can understand it ..

Looks like I have some luck in that topic,
my girlfriend understands my connection with guitar pretty well,no complaint at all.
Tho she doesn't understand me in some other matters but that's life I guess. biggrin.gif

Pretty much the same here, the only time I may get a complaint is at the weekends (daytime) if I want to do some recording etc, so as shes pretty good about it all the other times I guess I can compromise at the weekends smile.gif

My girl also wants me to write her songs! smile.gif

Don't worry Juan, just try to talk as much as you can with your girl on the subject, and try to explain why you like your music and why you spend so much time with your guitar.

Off course, occasional flowers or a small present can do wonders wink.gif

With my last girlfriend I said to her that I really was to busy with music to have a girlfriend. She said that wouldn't be a problem, that she understood me. It went a week before she broke up tongue.gif I guess it all comes down to priorities.
