I want to make my girlfriend more interested in the scene.

Just wait until she grows a neo-cortical layer out of thin air.

girl...friend? I thought those only existed in that strange other world where "I was hacking 6510 assembler like crazy" isn't a common description of your saturday night...

demoscene girls are not easy to handle ;) and the "winnerdemo" ruled :)!

when you don't want to have kids with her

Wow, slow down there, missy. Who said anything about kids?
Pfff.. well my gf likes drawing, so then it's easy. Just ask her to do the graphics of your next demo http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=31073 :)

avoozl: my gf likes drawing, too, but I'm pretty sure she wouldn't like drawing on a computer. It has to be more about the social side of things, in order to make her interested.
I really wonder how important it really is, that your girlfriend is interested in the demoscene.
ok, it's definitely cool and I'm very happy, that my gf is interested, but on the other hand if she wouldn't be - so what. as long as she's not *against* ist and want's to keep you away from that hobby everything's fine, eh? I mean, my gf also has hobbies I'm not (that much) interested in, so she does it alone/with here friends. perfectly fine. having a relationship doesn't mean you have to share everything.

It's like forcing her to like music you like.

if you can't get your girl in the demoscene, try it vice versa.

styx: Well, the situation is that she thinks the scene can't be THAT serious for me and doesn't understand that I want to visit more parties than the occional Breakpoint now and then. Now, I look at pictures at Slengpung and see a lot of familiar faces at lots of smaller parties and I think "I want to do that, too" - but in order to get there, I really have to become really unpopular with her every time I go to a party, or I could make her interested, too, and solve the problem that way.

Dumping her is not an option. I love her and she means more to me than the scene does, but it would be nice to be able to connect those 2 things.

All in all, some nice advice has been given here that I'll try - girlie demoshow coming up!

Reports on that coming later, promise....
Dump her and hit on a gay scener, problem solved :)

it's not like the scene lacks faggots: Okkie, Shifter etc \o/

Girlfrienddom* aside, is there really anyone following the demoscene who isn't involved in creating scene art / doesn't aspire to create scene art themselves (whatever 'scene art' might mean)? If she's the creative type, then I'm thinking "get her to do the graphics / music / ideas / poetry / advanced shader optimisation for your next demo" might not actually be a bad idea at all. And if she's not the creative type, I suspect you may as well not bother trying...

(* no, that isn't a word, don't bother looking it up)

So basically, she's putting all the pressure on you. Man, you don't even have children or a house, and she has already taken control of your life. Is THIS love ? ;)

How about reversing the situation ? If SHE doesn't accept your demoparties, she'll get really unpopular with you ! Ever thought about it that way ?

I liked Shifter better when he had a ponytail. The exterior, that is...

Well, at least he still has his ninja abs!

Good point.

However, I can't say that I blame her for becoming annoyed that I want to spend a large portion of our money on a thing SHE does not understand. I can't deny that I'd most likely react the same way, if she thought about spending zounds of euros on a thing that I just didn't think was so necessary to use all that money on.

It's not like I can't live without going to parties - I was just looking for a good idea to easy up on things and make my life even better.
keops: my god, that dude (who looks frightingly like Shifter, yes - but we both know it just CAN'T be him, right?) has a B-cup???
so, you just arrived at the famous "we love each other but we deny each other" point. good luck mate...

in 3-4 months you'll realize that she's a manic psycho who's afraid of being lonely and that she probably see's the scene as an personal opponent, after all you belong to her and not to this weird scene.. who knows what might happening there, you could start taking drugs, meet other girls or make out with $random_scener, but if you ignore her worries and still go to parties she'll be all depressed, will try several suicide attempts and will start cutting herself.
then finally she agrees on going to a demoparty with you so you can show her what it's all about, but instead of finding peace she will cheat on you with another scener who she met there, probably somebody who understands her much better than you ever did.

and now i'm gonna stop being a bastard for a while. :)
