    I have this problem. Last night i was talking to my girl on the phone and she was like, "I wanted to talk to you about something." So I said okay, what. She was like "I don't know why but I had a really bad feeling today about this graffiti thing. I don't think you should paint anymore." Oohh, terrible pain in the region of the chest. "What do you mean you don't want me to paint anymore? What kind of graffiti artist would i be? A wannabe, a blackbook warrior." I told her I would stop though because she was worried about it and I told her I'd do anything for her, but really, what the hell. I can't exactly go back on my word, but at the same time I can't forsake my art. Would you guys make fun of me and call me names if I were to only rock in my blackbook, and maybe on stickers and stuff. The answer is probably yes. I kind of want to cry.

    if you want to paint...paint...it might fuck things up with your girl, but you cant just give it up. if you can you must not have been too passionate about it to begin with. Let it be for a few days and try and talk to her about it again...

    she's on the pill. Yeah, I was thinking about talking to her about it. I mean, she said it was my choice whether or not to paint, but she had this real bad feeling about it and was worried about me. Things aren't going to get fucked up between us I don't think, if I keep writing, but you never know, know?

    She shouldn't even have to make you choose between the 2! Stop painting when you feel ready to stop, not because some chick wants you to.

  12. dude, lose the chick. graff is better. i told my girlfriend graff is first, she is second. it just so happens i dig graff more than her, even though i am way into her too..
     
  13. Shit, everyone here is acting like she threatened to cut his balls off if he didn't stop painting. She's not forcing a damn thing, she just asked him to stop because she had a bad premonition. What the fuck is wrong with that? Contrary from what scienxe said, EVERYONE is entitled to opinions and suggestions, and asking you to stop doing something. But at the same time, you are also entitled to heed that advice or ignore it. Remember, it's asking, not forcing. But he was right about not being a dick about it.

    The way I see it, she's not gonna break up with you if you don't stop painting. She's worried because she cares about you, which means she won't just stop caring and dump you if you keep on going. If you do get caught, she sure as hell won't get into any trouble, but she'll be sad as fuck and worried sick about you. So the reason she wants you to stop isn't selfish, it's just looking out for your own wellbeing. Everyone here is making her look like some evil villain.

    90% of people in here who think they love their girlfriends will look back when they're 45 and say "Damn, what the hell was I thinking, in love? Yeah right." And 90% of people in here who claim to be "writers fo' life" will look back when they're 45 and say "I did it cause I was young and stupid" (doesn't mean you'll regret it). I can already see angry replies to this statement.

    My point is, be realistic. Young people like us are too quick to bust out the "I'll do anything for you" line because they love their girlfriends. So blindly following what she asks you to is stupid. But at the same time, things that seem very important to you right now, which you can't possibly seem to live without and which head your list of priorities (read: grafitti), will quickly take a back seat to other things in life as you grow older.

    At this point in your life, you're taking both of these things way too seriously. Stop obsessing about graff or how much you love her. It's hard to see things in context when you're only 20 years old like me, but trust me, you'll be glad about it in the end. My opinion? Chill a little on the graff scene. Go out to the yards a little less. Let her know you're acknowledging her worries. But by no means stop doing it. Sit down and talk with her, and reach a consensus. When you're old and fat, you'll probably look back on this situation and laugh. Beer,
