So it seems like my band has finally gotten up off the ground to the point where its pretty serious to all of us. We just recorded cd, have a bunch of shows, making merch etc.
Heres my problem:
Female singer + My best friend (male) guitarist really like each other and want a relationship.
I'd have no problems if we weren't in a band, but yea..
Is it really that bad? And if so, what do i say that could stop anything from happening without making me look like a douche?

It will happen no matter what you say/do, if it's going to happen.

There is no point except party and be healthy and happy. Also money is not something to live for. If i didnt need money for drugs and beer i would give mine away.

Tell them, they either have a relationship or they're in the band together. Honestly, if they break up, most of the time, the band breaks up. Bad idea for them to date...But give them an ultimatum, being a douche is the logical way out of this. You're not being a douche either

well lemme tell you something...You're ****ed. just let it happen. it will whether you like it or not so just let it be

my girlfriend is in my band.

she was in it before we started dating. so far, it's worked fine.
we just agreed that during practices/shows/anything like that having to do with the band, we had to pretend we weren't dating and just focus on the music.

it's worked fine so far.

also, the band is really important to us, so if we break up, we agreed to just keep going with the band, since we already kept it separate from our relationship in the first place.

Fleetwood mac?

so what you're saying is that, after getting out of the water naked with 5+ guys, you thought that once the girls were around you had better get some clothes on?

For the band, I would tell them straight up to not even attempt.

if it interfiers with the way you function as a band, then do something. but if you all can still work well together, just forget about it...
Be still my heart, I hear your back cracking...

You're screwed. You can't tell them not to, and they will break up eventually.

Just hope they don't go out and you're fine.

Maybe they could date and you could occasionally join them on romantic weekend getaways. Isn't that a great idea, Pit?

that's a terrific idea!
#21
just let them do it, if anything it should make them work together better.

Or if not, then if they break up just try to keep the band together and have them be friends.

In Epica, the singer was the guitarists girlfriend before the band started

This sounds like the best thing. However, I don't know whether or not your friends are mature enough for this kind of solution, in which case the best thing you can do is record CDs like no tomorrow so you have a lot before the band breaks up.

BAD IDEA.

Tell them that either they can date, or they can stay in the band.

If you have to fire them or they quit, at least you have the rest of your band and you can find replacements.

Which would make it hilarious if they're a trio.

Bring two random people (they don't have to play instruments, just say they do) and tell the people dating that those are their replacements.

This actually sounds like a good idea. Tell your friends that you're kicking them out and show them their replacements, wait until they freak out, and then tell them your demands.

Fleetwood mac?

Yeah, exactly what I was thinking.....

But when they were dating and then broke up, they created some of their most popular songs.... ie Go Your Own Way.
#35
Let them date, and then when they break up, write a top-selling album about it. Then get really famous so the girl quits and starts making ****ty pop music.
