A singer boyfriend will write a song for you or dedicate a song to you while they're performing. A painter boyfriend, if particularly good with portraits, will want to draw you. He will fill sketch pads with your face. He will want to dedicate a solo exhibit to you. If he's a photographer, he will want to take a gazillion photos of you. They will not be random photos, too. They will be incredibly good and frame-worthy. There is something very sweet about being someone's muse, you have to admit.


An artist boyfriend will always be able to make you feel special. He will be able to express his feelings for you in a unique and creative way. He will be able to make you feel beautiful and special through his art. He will be able to capture moments and memories through his art and create something meaningful that will last a lifetime. An artist boyfriend will be able to surprise you with his art, whether it is a painting, a photograph, a song or a poem. He will be able to make you feel like the most special person in the world and will always be able to show you how much he cares.

A painting for your birthday and perhaps a silver pendant that he made himself for Christmas. With an artist boyfriend, you will be showered with gifts that are made with love. Store-bought gifts are fine and all but nothing says love than something that he made himself. Being an artist, he will also know other talented people who sell items that are made with love. He will have an endless supply of unique and beautiful gifts to give you.



There are times when you want to be left alone and an artist boyfriend will understand this fully. They can relate, in other words. Whether they are experiencing a creative block or they are too hyped with inspiration to speak with anyone, some artists would want you to leave them alone. And that's fine because they will not hound us when we don't feel like speaking with anyone, too.

Spend a considerable amount of time with someone and you eventually pick up some skills. If it weren't for my boyfriend, I would not know basic Photoshop skills. If it weren't for him, I would not know the first thing about decent photography. Learning something new is always a good thing, you have to agree. This may be one of the best things I love about having an artist boyfriend.



It's incredibly inspiring to be with someone who creates things that make your jaw drop. If you are with someone with great talent, you get the itch to create, too. Sure, you may never be as great as your boyfriend, but the simple fact that he inspires you to tap into your artistic side is fantastic. Who knows, there might be an artist hiding inside you...

This part is a wee bit mean (in that "taking advantage of people" sort of way) but I had to include it. Having an artist boyfriend gives you an edge. You will have someone to draw a school project for you. He can help you tweak the images of your website. He can take photos of you so that your profile photo on Facebook looks professional. You want a unique design for you next tattoo? He's your guy. By the way, I am taking advantage of this last bit right now.

Now do you see why I love having an artist boyfriend? Those who have artists boyfriends, tell me, what do you love about having that type of guy in your life?

A boyfriend who loves photography as much as I do would be an amazing find.

One possible downside to the artist boyfriend (and while I haven't had a boyfriend artist, I've been close friends with a few artistic boys) is that not only will he understand when you want to be left alone, he will most definitely at times prefer to be left alone himself. That's fine, but can be taken to a point of rudeness and then blamed on being an introvert/having the artistic temperament. Artistic people can be emotionally high maintenance. This might work great for you, but it's something to be aware of when dating an artist :)

As a artist boyfriend myself I can contest that much of this is true. Though we may inspire you, you inspire us even more and the emotional high from being in love lets us create exquisite works of art. I never even reached my full potential until falling in love after that my poetry skill was born and the artist inside of me was complete.

Oh nothing beats a romantic dude

i have one (painter) and all of these facts are so true. i even went to his art show just a few days ago. ;)
