If you're at a point where you need to work around the clock to achieve your goals as an artist I would say don't get involved in serious romantic relationships. It's good to date casually when you're such a point in your life so you can have human interaction but you're not dragging someone along for the ride so to speak.
Sometimes one gets to a point in their life where they're not available for relationships or friendships even though they would like them.
However I'm not a great artist. And I made the decision a few months ago to lay off the romance until I get my head straight.
