Artsy girls are the backbone of the human race. We're the weirdos, the poets, the musicians, the artists and the dreamers.
We're also the thinkers. We're capable of feeling and doing things your average woman isn't capable of doing, which is code for, "We're more complicated."
But, ultimately, complicated is good because complicated tests the boundaries of the human spirit. Complicated knows and understands nearly every emotion on the spectrum.
Most importantly, complicated — unlike uncomplicated — possesses the ability to stand the test of time because when passion ebbs in a relationship, the complicated knows how to reignite the spark.
Here are five reasons why dating an artsy girl is difficult, but worth it:
She's not afraid to try new things.
As an innovator, she is no stranger to being thrown into scary and trying environments. Her stamina will brush off on you and encourage you to try new and exciting things, too.
You'll be surprised by how much she opens you up to the greatest things in life — things you otherwise might not have had the courage to do or see.
Oh, and by the way, this all applies to her bedroom etiquette, as well. Never a dull moment there, either.
She has a dream, and she's resilient. She knows what it takes to make it to the top, and she'll always find new ways to try and get there.
This unwillingness to back down carries over into everything she does — including romantic relationships — and she'll never let anyone get in the way of what she wants.
"Stage-Five Clinger" isn't on her list of potential performances because her independence makes her more than capable of standing on her own two feet.
She'll believe in her own dream even when no one else does, and you'll admire this about her.
She’ll understand your struggles and won't let you give up.
The artsy girl knows what it's like to have self-doubt, and she also knows what it's like to let that self-doubt cripple you.
She takes the path less traveled, so she's prepared for all situations that involve self-deprecation.
When you need someone to lift you up, she'll be at your side without hesitation, no matter what you're going through. She'll believe in your dream when you don't believe in it.
She isn't vapid.
The artsy girl only pays attention to the things in life that matter most. She isn't concerned with appearances; she's concerned with the sentiment an appearance emits.
She appreciates the creator of the Michael Kors bag more than the Michael Kors bag itself. Materialism simply isn't her style.
She taps into what's underneath the surface and will always keep her innate curiosity intact. This quality makes her an especially good potential long-term partner.
You’ll never get bored.
Just as she does in work, she will continue to create in her personal life. Her creativity is what makes her unique, and this is what makes you continue to fall for her.
If the pace of the relationship begins to slow down, she won't accept defeat; rather, she'll always think of a new way to enjoy each other's company.
Then again, only a real man can handle an artsy girl. I'll admit it: She's a lot to deal with, but being with her is like nothing else you'll ever experience. Besides, if you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen.
It's like Carrie Bradshaw once said:
"Maybe some women aren't meant to be tamed. Maybe they just need to run free until they find someone just as wild to run with them."
