Two artists dating
My hubby is a poet - so it's a different type of artist, but it's the lifestyle that needed to be accomodated. People that roll around with currencies all day makes me feel uncomfortable. However, if this person is in love with the arts, that's a different story. Have several in the family and my sister's have both married artistic people. I longed for a man who could write songs for ME or paint/draw pictures of & for me, but eventually realized it was not going to happen.
Obviously it's nice to have common interests and goals but i do not think that it's 'better' to be married to an artist just to have that.
Interestingly since I have taken up art, hubby has started to 'see' things differently, and often tells me about something that would make a lovely painting. He says he's waiting for me to get famous so he can quit working.ha I don't think it necessary to have an artist spouse..one who will support you in whatever you want to do! It also depends on how serious you take your creative endeavors. Mutual admiration, respect, and adoration certainly takes on other forms than someone's artistic talent/life style.

We also visit exhibitions and galleries together, and recently when two of my works were accepted into a selected exhibition, there couldn't have been a prouder man at the opening.

If it's a hobby, then I don't think anyone cares, but if it's in your blood and a big part of who you are as a person, then that artist's pride would start to interfere. But, for me personally, I don't believe I could fall in love with someone who doesn't have any poetry in their soul.

My website sits on a friend's server right now, and they've limited the bandwith for the traffic to my website because the hight volume of traffic.
For someone to truly know and understand my fascination and love of art and reading.
Now, I could settle for someone creative in some way OR someone with an appreciation of it. If you know the true nature of the wolf, then you know what I'm saying.
Tammy's Home for Artists ( posted by Lunachild: I guess the bottomline is, as long as this person can understand and share the joy of being creative or admiring someone else's creativity, *sigh* Why can't it be easier? For what it's worth, I usually date business people (during the half-decade gaps of singledom) - an editor and an accountant the latest. But, if it's of loved ones, I always smile when I look at those.
