So im dating a rockstar
That moment when you lock eyes with him in the middle of a performance—Credits: Photography Paul Del Rosario | Styling RJ Roque | Makeup Gex Garcia of L’Oréal Philippines and Edna Eleria using BYS Cosmetics | Hair Ethan David | Models Yheen Valero and Beatriz Yu of Yeoh Models This story was published in Chalk magazine with the title "I'm With the Band" and is available in all leading bookstores. Since his job requires him to play at gigs at some bar or another, your dates are usually relegated in between his work—which usually starts at p.m. Weekends are hectic, too, so weekdays will be your best bets at spending quality time together. If you stick around for the whole songwriting-recording-mixing cycle of an EP or album or if you join him on one or two shows, you’ll easily learn all of the words in all of the songs.
No suffocating in crowds or elbowing your way through a mosh pit.

Soon enough, you’ll realize that it’s okay to skip a show. When you’ve been at it for long, though, watching him play at the usual bar (his “office”) will, at some point, kind of feel like him watching you type on your computer as you tinker with an Excel worksheet. Even if you’re not the type, you’re sure to be so overcome with pride at some point in his career that you’ll patiently wait backstage, camera, water bottle, and extra t-shirt in hand to support him.
Wherever they’re invited to play, there you’ll be, so you’re sure to hang out where you normally wouldn’t even think of going, say, a small campus in a new city, a new bar in your neighborhood, or a huge field out of town. Not only do you get to watch his band and others, you get to do so backstage, side stage, and, sometimes, even on the stage. Speaking of, you’ll definitely have your stage girlfriend moments.
Of course, when he’s onstage swinging a guitar or serenading an audience, he won’t be able to read your “I love you, babe! His Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram will definitely be filled with messages, mentions, and comments from sundry types of people, so you can’t really get mad if he happens to reply to other girls who show an interest in his music.
