Artists are compassionate and they have an unmistakable zeal for life. Creative people can find beauty in almost everything!  That’s just one reason why an artist makes for a perfect date.

Do you agree? Read on…

Here are 10 more reasons why you should date an artist!

1. Artists are Passionate!

Everyone knows that passionless relationships are boring which is the demise of many couples. But being with an artist can be exciting and never boring! Maybe it’s the fact that artists are always looking to be inspired and share in the beauty of everyday life .   As long as you’re with a creative type, you’ll never again have to worry about a relationship that lacks passion, brightness, or love. Artists are brimming with these awesome traits.

2. They’re Smart 

Intelligence, along with a sense of humor and good looks, rank at the top when it comes to desirable qualities in a mate. Artists are curious, they enjoy learning. Creatives are constantly studying and striving to improve their craft, plus they are good at thinking on their feet all day! Artists are great problem solvers for everything from client issues to fixing an art piece gone wrong.

If you’re dating an artist, you can be pretty sure you aren’t dating a dummy.

3. You’ll Inspire Them and See Your Reflection in Their Work

Haven’t you always wanted a floor-to-ceiling portrait of you and your cat atop a plush velvet pillow?

Of course, we kid — except maybe some of you have received such a treasure. Lucky you. The point is, that artists are always looking for their next muse. Hopefully, your relationship sends your other half filling blank canvases with reflections of you or better yet, how you make them feel.

4. They Make Their Own Hours

For some couples, the odd hours can be an advantage. Are you stuck working the graveyard shift every Friday? If you’re dating an artist with the same irregular schedule, Mondays can become the new Friday.

At the same time, an artist’s schedule can leave you with plenty of alone time while they’re toiling away in the studio. For people who like a little alone time to read a novel, hang out with friends, or work on their projects, dating an artist can be a good way to have your cake and eat it, too.

5. They Have Great Stories

Whether they work at a gallery, as a freelance illustrator, or at a web design firm, artists have great stories to tell. Creatives deal with strong (and wrong) client opinions, people with bad taste, their successes as well as rejection, and bad critiques regularly.

While some of those situations may be tough on the artist you’re dating, they can lead to some pretty entertaining stories for you. Be a listening ear and help them laugh off the tougher stuff.

6. They’re a Great Pictionary Partner

Prepare to make all your friends jealous because, with an artist by your side, you’re set to dominate. Whether you’re drawing Humpty-Dumpty, a tree house, or Meryl Streep, your partner’s superior illustration skills will make Pictionary way less cryptic and infinitely more fun — although we can’t promise your friends will feel the same.

7. You Might Get to See the World

Dating a traveling artist? Their nomadic lifestyle could allow you to travel, see, and live in new cities. Life on the road isn’t always easy, but for the right person, this could be a dream come true. Some people would give anything to get out and see the world with someone they love!

8. Their Creativity Usually Extends Beyond the Canvas

9. They’ve Got Mad Skills

It’s so important to notice the talents, gifts, and genius of your significant other. Not many of us can pick up a pencil, paintbrush, or Wacom pen and create awe-inspiring work. Your artist partner is incredibly gifted and that’s super sexy.

Make time to appreciate their abilities, compliment them, and support them in growing their passions and skills. We bet they do the same for you — that’s how it works!

10. Artists Rock!

Who WOULDN’T want to date an artist? They‘re amazing!

Becoming an artist is no easy task and these individuals have persevered through thick and thin, and probably still are! You can feel good knowing that the artist you’re dating is creating a lot of happiness in this world just by doing what they love, even when they aren’t with you!
