Music

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Here's a question that I've asked myself for a while. Does a person's taste in music affect their chances of getting with someone.

I'm seen as different amongst some of my friends when it comes down to liking music. I'm a fan of bands like oasis, travis, green day, dance, but I'm also a fan of a lot of old stuuf like The Beatles, Paul Simon, Simon and Garfunkel, Don Mclean,etc. The way people react to me telling them this is like I've offended them. Will this make girls think twice before having anything to do with me?

    lol thats cool, why would anyone see it as a bad thing that someone had wide tastes in music. ive always had a really varied taste in music because thats what ive been brought up with. when i was 13/14 my favourite music was santana, frank zappa and david bowie. most of my friends hadnt even heard of any of them and were mostly into take that and bros or new kids on the block or whoever was the band of the time (showing my age now).
    theres nothing wrong with the stuff you listen to, i dont see why it should affect whether girls like you, unless that is the only thing that defines your personality.

    I'm pretty much an indie kid, so I'd rather another indie kid than a fan of any other kind, but I wouldn't rule people out because of their taste, unless it was REALLY bad!

    I'm into most music so it doesn't bother me what a potential partner is into, if a girl was put off u because of your taste in music though is she really worth it?

    unless your into mosher music and wear all black(nothing wrong with that but i'm just saying that it's obvious what type of music you like) or anything else like that then it shouldn't affect weather someone likes you because it doesn't show.

    if you start going out with someone or get chatted up by someone then they originally liked you because of what you looked like etc so i don't see why music should make any difference.

    forgot to mention...i'm into greenday,blink 182 and all the stuff like that but my boyfriend absolutly hates it, he's more of a dance music sort of person but we've been going out for 8 months now and he's known what sort of music i liked all along. the music doesn't affect my personality or anything so he doesn't see anything wrong with it.

    just because you don't share the same interests in music doesn't mean you can't find something else which you have in common

    I thinkit's really shallow when people can only be friends or go out with people who like the same music as them. When I was at uni this girl was going on about how she just could never be friends with someone who wasn't into indie music and I sooo wanted to slap her, the shallow cow.

    But then it does make it easier, eg if you like trance you probably like going clubbing, if you like indie music you go to see bands, so if you go out with someone with different tastes you may disagree about where to go. But have an open mind! If someone is fit and a nice person I woulnd't care what music they were into...I might draw the line at country and western though!

    In my book you're free to like what you like, and Ive got a taste for quite golden oldies myself. But I would have second thoughts about a guy if he though Rammerstein was even vaguely listener friendly <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    i think that it is great to like old music. I too love the Beatles. Whoever goes out with you should be very happy to be with someone with good taste!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Why should any1 mind what music ur into? Yeah its easier if the person shares the same interest in music, yet its sumtimes better wen ur seein someone that has a WIDE range of music! the phrase 'You learn something new everyday' comes to mind *said in a high pitched, old lady voice!* <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    There again I dance/listen to anything!

    no i dont think you taste in music can affect your chances!!

    i love music like the doors, led Zepplin, blur, jimi hendrix, fun lovin criminals. i love all my indie but im into clubbing and boy racing. if the women dont fancy you coz of your music taste they are not worth it!

    Thing is, it seems as if there are so many social stereotypes where music is concerned.
    For example, at school spme of the kids who are into either garage or 'grunge' seem to block out the other which kind of takes any chance of a relationship away.
    The thing is, I think it's possible to like a wide range of musical genres without "categorising" yourself.

    Personally, if a guy can appreciate [not necessarily like!] what I like then that's cool. If he's rude to me, he's not.

    I would say a girl would be interested in you and only you and would like whatever you like.Everybody has different likes and opinions but that's life.

    Ur taste in music will only affect your chances if the person you want to get with is incredibly shallow!me and my boyfriend have totally different tastes in music but it doesnt affect our relationship one bit!(apart from when we argue about what music to put on)-ususally we decide on the radio but then its all about what station...! my boyfriend is in a rock band and i totally support him and i know he will make it big one day!i cant stand the music but it doesnt matter!G <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> D LUCK! xxx

    Music in itself isn't a big thing but it's often important to people and something good to have in common. I think the people I get on with best tend to have the same or similar tastes in music.
