Quote from: MeltingManI agree with most of PTB's and Ulrich's answers, so I'm focussed on some minor questions: → Do you believe in gender differences?Hmm. If you watch Morte a Venezia you will find the answer. → Are you "depressed"?No, I'm melancholic. → Do you do any music yourself?Unfortunately not. I mean not longer. I have collected a number of Oberheim instruments. → Are you married?I'm divorced, but since then the relationship to my ex-wife has improved. → Do you have or want kids? No, I haven't but I like kids in general.
Quote from: MeltingMan→ DO YOU ALSO CARE ABOUT ROBERT SMITH AS A PERSON?I admire him as an artist and accept him as human being.→ WOULD YOU SAY ROBERT´S CHARACTER IS SIMILIAR TO YOUR OWN?There are in fact similarities. I grew up in a small town where The Cure wasn't very popular; including a catholic background. This is something that I share withRobert and Lol. -> DO YOU CARE MOSTLY ABOUT THE MUSIC OR IS THE CURE IMAGE AS IMPORTANT TO YOU?The music is the key to The Cure - the B-sides in particular. → DO YOU IMITATE THE CURE LOOK YOURSELF?Yes. Not excessive, but I like Robert's style and colors like black, brown,green, (ocean)grey, red and combinations of them. I have long hair but I'mnot wearing make-up.

[size=14pt]A survey of fan mentality: The Cure[/size][size=12pt]In General[/size]How and when did you get to know the cure? When and because of what did you turn into a fan?[size=12pt]You (I'll be writing about what we, as fans, have in common, so this part is on your person)[/size]What other hobbies do you have? Do you do sports? Do you dance? How would you describe yourself? How old are you? What kinds of clothes do you like to wear? Do you believe in gender differences? Are you "depressed"? Do you do any music yourself? Are you married? Do you have or want kids? [size=12pt]Us (What do we think of our own fan attitude?)[/size] How would you describe our general fan mentality? Do you agree with the following statements?:1. Robert says fans of the band are "generally very passionate" and "all beautiful and clever." 2. Simon notes fans often "feel a bit alienated". 3. Many people are convinced most Cure fans are not that good in sports. 4. Psychoanalyst Catherine Lavaillant stated in the MTV icon show in 2004 that the Cure "helps [fans] with their adolescent issues". 5. We are all fairly obsessed with our very favorite band. What else is there that you're convinced we all share? [size=12pt]The Cure Music[/size]What's the best part about the Cure's music? [size=12pt]The Band Persona and Image[/size]Do you also care about Robert Smith as a person? Would you say Robert's character is similar to your own? Do you care mostly about the music or is the cure image as important to you? Do you imitate The Cure look yourself? If Robert Smith left the band, would you still remain a fan? (Just wondering...)Has Robert Smith or another band member sometimes been like an invisible friend to you? Do you have a favorite band member?
