Nice story, Nik. Keep them coming. Itís always a bonus to find a woman who likes classical music. Hopefully, one day, this will happen for me.
I still think it's better to have shared values rather than specific shared interests, but I understand how finding someone who enjoys and values the music as much as you do would be so appealing. I mean, don't get me wrong - remember that upcoming chamber recital I was telling you about (the Shostakovich Piano Trio No. 2 and the RVW C minor piano quintet)? I wouldn't mind walking into the auditorium and finding a late twenties Emmanuelle Beart in the unallocated seating.
But just keep plugging away, talking to people, make eye contact, enjoy going to events or simply about your day as a matter of course, appear faintly indifferent to it all (especially when you meet a woman) and it'll eventually happen.
