he loves his oil paints more

One of the most troubled types to date, besides the musician, is the artist. Picture dating a boy who has a moody temperment, spends all night painting and really thinks he's gonna eventually pay rent with his tortured art. He's probably gonna be the type who delightfully rolls around in misery, who needs a fan girl to appreciate his torment, who will make obscure statements to sound profound - you get the picture. Here's some tips on how to deal with the artist boy so you don't resort to drowning him in gesso when he's asleep.

DISCLAIMER: By the way, these tips aren't meant to upset the actual punkers, stoners, musicians, ravers, goths and other types who visit Grrl.com. Sure not all musicians care more about their guitars than their girlfriends, and not all stoners eat tons of Ho-Hos, and not all goths wear black eyeliner, and not all ravers take E. But that's not the point. THIS IS IN JEST AND GOOD FUN. Learn to laugh at yourself a little. After all, not only have I dated all these stereotypes, but at different points of my life I was each of these stereotyoes myself -- except for the Redneck, that is.
