Dated several young ladies for anywhere from 10 months to 2 years since I got into audiofoolin' around, and I've yet to find one that truly gets it. The last girl that I dated I ended up living with for about a year, and although I made every attempt to involve her, she just never really got into it. (Even bought her a pair of HD 25-ii in Adidas blue... which she never used a single time, and which I thusly reappropriated upon inviting her to find another place to live). Part of it is almost certainly the fact that my musical tastes are definitely not the norm (primarily metal, with a lot of small string ensembles and trip-hop when the mood strikes), but even when listening to music that my various GFs have liked, it seemed like they still just thought the whole endeavor was crazy.
What makes this all Alanis-Morrisette-ironic is that both my mom and my sister (who is absolutely stunningly beautiful, much to my chagrin) are really into audio as a result of my deep interest. My sister is in the process of buying my old 5-channel setup (Onix Rockets in Rosewood, gorgeous), and she regularly runs around Nashville wearing the HD 25-ii that I got her, giving not a damn about what anybody thinks about it. So I can interest my family in the awesomeness of getting this involved with your music, but not the girls I date. Boo berries.
If anybody wants to point me in the direction of an intelligent, attractive, well-spoken and open-minded young lady who is neither medicated nor in need of medication and would enjoy a modest obsession (ha!) with music, I'll sign up!! Where are those Russian webpages, again? ;)
