I would like to add that I think life has another challenge for me.  Just right now I have no idea what that is...

Let us know when you get an inkling!

You'd never believe this - I'd never belive this - but I got a nibble from another guy... Shocked  lets not get our hopes up... much....

Fingers crossed ee!!

Everyone tries to rush up through the syllabus levles and think once they are at the top they have arrived.  What they don't realize is that by doing this it is like skimming through a book, you may get the gist but you will never understand the story.

So what do you do when a partnership dries up unexpectedly? Or is this one of those situations where dance partners should be like computers -- always have a backup?

too often thats the problem Tongue Tongue I mean the partner has a backup that you did not know about.

you can't reasonably have a backup.  An AM dance partnership is more committed than a marriage; a backup would cause an instant divorce - and lots of crying.

the answer is you stop dancing until you can face the humility that the dance is over - and then you either quit (since there are no other partners) or if you HAVE to dance you do pro-am. 

guess where Iam... Undecided Undecided Tongue

Oh my goodness. That stinks.  I suspect there are less-principled people out there who use the back-up strategy, though, despite the crying.   Undecided

oh yes, just like the person that finds a new partner before suing for divorce.  its so important to finish one relationship before embarking on another...

Yep.    And when I see that, I always comfort myself with my great-grandmom's old adage. "God don't like ugly."  In the end, I choose not to believe that that kind of ugly behaviour ever leads to good results.

Of course, the time between the doing of dastardly deeds and "the end" can be a tad long for my taste ...
