The relationships wherein you’re dating a person from a creative background are one the best ones. But, it is not that easy to be with a person with creative tinge. You have to do your research well, be prepared for some random situations and also you have to stick at it, even if it looks like it’s not working initially.
Once you start dating a creative soul, you will surely see some great changes in your lifestyle and that will make you feel delighted. They are also old souls! So next time, whenever you like somebody from the creative crowd understand the following points and you are good to go!
1. Sleepless Minds
As the saying goes, the creative mind never sleeps. It’s cent percent true for the creative crowd out there. They sleep less, first of all and even when they do, their mind keeps on dreaming about something new, something Blue, something unique. Most of the time you will see them experimenting and you have to be a part of it always with the similar pace.
One day they will be seen all shouting, jumping and dancing and in a supremely amazing mood and the other day they will be all lost in their own world and will speak minimum. Yes, mood swings will be common and so will be the extreme behavior. I know it is a little too much to handle. but then love does come with terms and conditions, right?
3. ME Time
When they say, “I need to be alone for some time, they mean it unlike most of the population who use the same phrase to keep the company a little long. For them, ‘ME’ time is the most important thing in the world because that is the time when they introspect their ideas, think about new ideas, rejoice their success and take lessons from their failure. Do not ever try to disturb them then.
P.S. – No calls too, because when they are back to the normal world, they would like to see their phone normal and not with 365 texts and 200 missed calls.
Yes, they have their priorities straight. You are definitely their priority, but not the only one. Creative people have lots in their mind and so reading, painting, music or any other art can be their priority which will be ahead of you and you have to deal with it. Instead, it helps if you have similar interests.
5. Emotions run deep
Yes, they feel everything straight from their heart – be it a song, a painting, a situation in which an animal is injured; ANYTHING! When they feel bad for a dead bug, don’t say, “it’s just a bug”. Instead, tell them something which they will like to hear. Something like, “we will do a good deed in the memory of the bug.” As stupid as it sounds, it is bound to bring a smile. These are small little things, but it will make them feel connected and so it will be a plus point for both.
6. Good Storytellers
Want to date a creative person, be ready to listen to the stories all the time. Relive your childhood with them. They will never say something like, “the Sun rises in the east”. It will always be on the lines of “it’s God’s routine to paint the East with Orange every morning.”
Try to look at the excitement, focus on every tiny detail, listen, because when you will do that you are only knowing that person a little better and I am sure you will love it.
7. Fighting with the self
As we know, everybody is fighting their lone battle and so are they. In their case, the fight is a little strong and straight forward. They know their weaknesses, their short comings and they try to overcome them every time. When they fail, they will be disappointed with self, might cry too, but just be with them in their journey. Help them introspect and be with them when they are overcoming their fears.
8. Intuition – Oxygen of the creative people
Call them insane, call them stupid, but they always believe in their intuition. They will have a strong intuition of the situations and they would like to go with that. They won’t stop you from thinking the other way round, but then they are right, most of the times and so be prepared to hear, “I told you” phrase for the following few days.
Now creative crowd are either full of confidence or under confident, there is no line of average for them. Fully confident people will all be words about their thoughts and actions whereas the under-confident people will live in their cocoon, though both kinds of people will shine in their own world. So if you are with the one who is flying, fly along and if you are with the one who is in the cocoon, be their first listener.
10. The kid never sleeps
Yes, but that does not mean they will literally act like a kid. No, they have the curiosity level of a kid. They want to know everything – why the stars twinkle, why some humans are unfaithful, why kids these days are lazy (none of these, actually. But things similar to these!)
11. Randomness at its peak
It is one of the best qualities of creative people. The will be random all the time. Their actions do make sense, but randomness keeps their minds on the toe. Randomly they will call you to cancel the date, and randomly they will surprise you with a candle light dinner. They like to receive and give surprises.
12. Unprepared trips
They just pack their bags and go anywhere. Plans are for dull minds, for creative minds there’s adventure and lone trips. Oh yes, they go on unprepared trips and have the time of their life. Sometimes they forget the schedule and make plans for themselves. Yes, they live! Be a part of it sometimes, you will have the best time of your life.
13. Thinking beyond the obvious
If people think about dinner, they think about midnight snacks. As mentioned earlier, they are a package of randomness and surprises.
They participate in lots of activities – who wins the cycle race, who can eat more burgers, who can jump more times on one leg, those kinds. Yes they participate, not for the sake of winning but for having fun, because most of the times people forget to live. Creative people teach us that one thing.
15. They need breaks often
Yes, they can be away for longer duration and you have to make your peace with it. Lone trips, me time, sleep – they need it all. But that is fine, because when they will be with you, they will be with you and you will spend the best time of your life.
So, I know you have to be different than others to be able to date a creative person, but then it’s worth it. Let us know the experience you had if at all you have dated or are dating a creative person.
