    Goodbye, Amanda.

    On an unrelated note, I'm free now, ladies. And I play bass.

    Sorry to hear it man, but it's better off that way I would think. Alls well that ends well.

  3. You got your priorities straight- yourself before some woman that tells you to give up bass (let alone TB, something I cannot fathom giving up).
  4. good on you mate.

    thats something I would NEVER take either. whoever is with me is just going to have to respect the things that I love doing, or they'll be out the door in no time.

  5. Straight up! :spit:

    IF she doesn't love you for who you are, you're wasting your time and so is she.
  6. Wow. Coincidence. I'm a single bassist too.

    Wanna hang out?

    BTW, your new name is Only The Lonely.

    Right on man. No one should make you choose between what you love to do and being in the relationship. I believe in compromise somehow, depending on the situation, like "stop buying gear every other week, or I'm outa here. But if you have to flat out "choose the bass or me", that's wrong.

    What did she have against the bass anyway?
  9. LMAO! You got rid of your girl to keep the bass?
  10. Lol. Using yumour, Steph!

    And yep, if your lady can't accept you for what you are - then its simply not worth it.

    Let's hope she wasn't too pile-drivingly heavy, though. :D

    Now is the time to keep her away from your gear.

    Many a woman with that attitude takes revenge on
    "the other woman."

    Good on ya, Only.

    Years from now, you will think back about her.

    Most likely, at a gig.

    Where you're playing with a great band and just killing it.

    And the crowd is loving it.

    And you're smiling from ear to ear, having a great time.

    And you will laugh. Oh man, will you laugh.
