    The title pretty much sums it up... what do you think?
  2. Why would there be a problem? You both share something completely awesome, so it would probably be cool.

    Ah yes, but opposites attract right?
  4. Uh no...that's like saying people that are completely different than me that I hate and don't get along with are my friends, and that doesn't happen to be the case.

    But by the same token, if two peopel are too much alike, I've found they can't always get along in a tight relationship, especially when its a dating type relationship.

    But seriously, nothing is for sure until you've tried it and found out.

    Go for it, tell us how it works out.
    Good Luck

    Can't say I've ever dated a bassist, but most girls really enjoy dating me so there must be something about us that makes us so irresistable :p

    Uh yeah... it already didn't work out, but for different reasons. I would have thought more people are dating fellow bassists :meh: BTW she was much better i was, but she wouldn't let me borrow her thong :D
  10. If Leigh and I were living in the same city, chances are we could be seeing each other at some point - I don't see anything wrong with seeing another bassist, I'd be all for it - it's the guitarists you have to watch. :ninja:

    BTW, Leigh... ***? What's with the wheel?
  11. Agreed, on both accounts. :)
  12. Oh. Cool. :smug:

    very true... Watch out for them geetarist...

    In high school I dated a bassist briefly, she was pretty punk, but that was cool... neither of us felt weird about our separate music influences... plus neither of our worlds collided.

    Years later (in college) I dated a URB'ist that was deep in the music program (while I was struggling to get into it myself), she was all of the bassist that I wanted to be (playing-wise)... there was a bit of tension, competition and she ended up leaving school prematurely to tour and later live in europe... :mad:

    My girlfriend is a bassist. She's been playing as long as I have, and she is way better than I am, but she won't let anyone but her teacher watch her play. We have a great relationship, though, and bass is just one of the many things we have in common. At least she understands me better than a non-bassist would.
