(I hope I'm not double-posting a subject, but…)  I've been a Beatles fan since I was 6–whole-heartedly.   A few decades later I'm wondering–Is it o.k. to just want to date another Beatles fan?  The guys I've dated in the past haven't been, maybe that help explains why things didn't pan out–maybe not sharing a love of the Beatles correlates with not sharing similar ideologies.  So, I suppose I'm asking: Is it alright to prefer to choose someone with whom I share a common (Beatles) ideology?  *So* many things beyond just being a fan of the Fab Four are encompassed by a Beatles ideology, incl. vegetarianism and spiritual beliefs.  (It's been a bit since I've wanted to date, but I promised myself that this would be one of the key criterias.  I'm thinking it *might* be o.k. as people often choose each other by virtue of their faiths, career fields, etc…)

 

Many Thanks!

With Peace and Love Always : )

Well, yeah I guess it's ok. But if your looking for a relationship on here, then I must tell you the BeatlesBible is not a dating agency.

The following people thank Dear Prudence for this post:

Carried over to here, though
 

And you do get that when we say that we're making fun of you, right? (in a nice way)

It's a major part of you're life – why shouldn't it be a factor? Personally, I'm not sure it would be a deal breaker for me, but he does need to have a great deal of patience. Great: he's a Beatles fan. Good: he has his own obsession (so he can't judge mine!).

if only dating a Beatles Fan will make you happy, only date Beatles Fans. Date People who make you happy; If only Beatles fans will make you happy, date Beatles fans!

And it's fine--shared interests are what build strong relationships. And it's not strange that you want someone who loves what you love.

Nobody would think that it was weird if a soccer player only wanted to date athletes!

Side note: My child is going to be named John Paul George Richard, so Beatles fandom is required.

Because the wind is high, it blows my mind.

I dated a girl pretty much for the sole purpose that she was a Beatles fan.  It didnt go to well.  Her name was Michelle too.

 

In Conclusion:  Not all Beatles fans are awesome.  But all awesome people are Beatles fans.

I believe it is very wise to choose someone with the same interests as yourself, such as liking the same bands or music genres. But if the boy/girl doesn't like the Beatles or any other band that you like for that matter, that's okay, too. In the past, I have been in relationships with people who didn't even know who they were, but were fantastic partners.

Who said it was? It wasn't a question of "Are there any guys/girls who want to date me?" It was a question of "Would I seem like a snob if I used being a Beatles fan as a criterion?"

 I agree with skye on this one. 

My factors are (in no particular order, except maybe 1 and 2):

1. He's a guy.

2. He has the same religion as I do. 

3. He's a vegetarian (or doesn't eat much meat already) 

4. He at least knows who the Beatles are and doesn't listen to crappy music.

5. He can make me laugh.

My list will probably change -- I'm only 15, so I haven't started dating yet. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Dear Prudence, I wouldn't dare desecrate such a relaxing and beautiful place as this with all those crazy aspects and emotions...I just wouldn't seek out a Beatles fan here.  This a very comfortable sacred ground and I like it and all here too much to spoil something so good.  I wouldn't imagine ever doing such a thing, being here is a privilege I value far too much, so, no worries : )

It's actually just what everyone's said, it's such a strong interest to want to have in common, that's all.  MeanMrs.Mustard has her priorities *spot on* (for me it's more spiritual than religious, though.)  And I *love* what kingjjj8 said about wanting someone I could talk to about this beautiful subject that's made such an imprint.  RedLennon, your point is well taken to heart--and *so, so* true!  Thank you.  And CranberrySauce--Such a great name! (When I was younger I converted an old bedtime prayer into Beatle-ese: I have four corners of my bed/I have four angels at my head/George, Ringo, Paul and John bless this bed that I sleep on.  I know, it's a bit much but I was little--about 6 or 7--when I did it, lol!  A cute little bedtime prayer for a kid, though.)

((I really thank you all for writing!))  Know that every perspective is well valued and heeded, too : )  I didn't want to put a limiting factor on where the heart roams, by the same token, this music, this culture...well, I guess as the song says, "That Means A Lot." (Yeah, I'd love to find a guy who gets that reference, lol!)

Hugs and Great thanks all around, Dear Prudence, JoB, skye, kingjjj8, mr Sun King Coming Together, CranberrySauce, RedLennon, Sunii, and MeanMrs.Mustard!

This is truly a great place to be!
