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!!

You have to fight through a lot of crap before you find your way up out of the toilet. Sometimes I think I have a good hold on the rim then I slip back in.  Each time I don't sink quite as deep though. - Rugby

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 ...
