After I met my girlfriend, I haven't released a one single song, I haven't finished one single song and pretty much I haven't really even made any music in months.

Now I really really tried to make some but I don't have any ideas and mostly I just stared at screen with this tiny "iiiiiiiiiiiiii" sound ringing in my ears :cry:

What can I do :cry:
When I hit the wall I do covers...you can learn a lot about songwriting and about your gear/DAW.

I'll give you a serious answer: Write a poem about her/life/etc. - even if it's negative (don't force it to go either way - it has to be how you feel - even if it comes from a place of frustration)

Get her a vuvuzela for valentines day. Then she can join your ''band''.

Here's a Future Music piece that was posted a day ago...

I'll also suggest not to worry so much about finishing or releasing. Just commit to practicing on a regular basis -- even if it's only 20-30 minutes per session. That's the one tip I've seen/heard most consistently from many successful creatives.

Good luck!

Ditch her! Do it today and she'll have a great story to tell for the rest of her life about this useless idiot who dumped her on Valentine's Day. Everybody wins, it's perfect!

Nothing else. The point is to make music just to allure females :shrug:

Practicing had been mentioned already. I would add listening to the more non commercial music. I always find it inspiring. If you have no ideas, they relate to the boring side of music... You would want a fresh mind. Don‘t listen to the radio, any bird out there is better than that...

broken record time...this is a healthy thing, life has it's cycles and times where we need to do other things...it's fine, relax and enjoy. If I could go back and tell a younger me one thing this would probably be it, the inspiration will be back, ideas will flow again and it's ok to step aside from music for a bit to do other things, in fact that's quite often when I did a lot of my growing. So dont be concerned about it, celebrate it as it is imo a very healthy sign :)
