Girlfriends - Page 5

post #61 of 94

You can buy them online, plentiful in russia. Brick and mortar stores no longer stock them but you can usually find them from shady dealers in crowded public centers after hours. If you are indeed lucky enough to find one in a store, there's a no touching policy.

Well in fairness you don't want one with too much clamp.

How about just "Welcome to Relationship-fi, sorry about your wallet". Less misogynistic and damn you all to Hell for scapegoating Kirosia.

Kirosia likes being scapegoat. Deep down, it fulfills him.

Yeah - but I enjoyed your previous post - very much mirrors my own thoughts really.

 

My other half (and before anyone thinks that is not endearing term - it actually is literally .... she does complete me/us) and we have been happily married now for a little over 20 years.  The secret is to share and communicate on everything, no matter how big or small.  She likes music, but doesn't share my passion for it.  But every decision I've made on audio gear - whether it be $400 headphones, or $40 on CDs - I always consult with her first.  She understands my passion - and although she's perfectly happy with her 2Gb Sony and the earbuds that came with it - she's also interested in what pushes my buttons.  That's what makes a partnership.  She shares my joy at new music finds (even if she hates the genre - not a big opera fan - whereas I love Netrebko, Garanca, and Bartoli), and we do have some music tastes in common (classic rock, and even some pop).

 

We've talked about budget and both know where the limits are.  That way there is no conflict - and there shouldn't be if communication is open and easy.

 

She also enjoys my HD600s and DT880s (not so much the Grado or K701) - but she's still wondering why I bought the LD MKIV.  She does know the music makes me happy though, and that's the secret ....... share everything, and rejoice in your partners uniqueness.

This is where we've come to in our relationship lately. I always ask first, and while sometimes she doesn't want me to spend the money, she understands how passionate I am about music. As long as it doesn't put us out of house and home, I'm good.

 

For instance, yesterday I informed her that (much to her dismay) we were probably going to end up with a Leben 300XS (she loathes the way it looks) and while she was frustrated at first when I explained that once reason I want it is to not be completely without a headphone system when we make the move to speakers. She immediately calmed down and said that she understands how important my headphones are to me and that she's alright with it even if she hates the way it looks. 

 

Communication and respect for the passions of the other half is very important.

me: I've been thinking of downgrading lately...

her: why? you're not going to be satisfied with anything lower down

me: ...oh, uh, I wasn't expecting that response
