Well she is doing all the hard work for you :-)


At the start, my dance partner calls me "nerd" ...sometime down the track it became "buddy"....now it's "cousin". I think the "cousin" thing is widely accepted in her family too. LoL

I think she's finding me a girlfriend. Bahahaha

My dance partner was a dance partner for about a year, and recently he's become a boyfriend. I'm a little young for thinking about life partners, but I want to dance with him for a very long time. He's always there to listen when I want to talk, and he's my best friend.

you are one very lucky lady... are you also the same age?

He's 6 months older than me, but that's pretty much the same age.
I am lucky...he also has the same moral values (unlike most other 16 year old guys...)

I've heard a few top pros say that being dance partners was a good trial for them for being life partners because if you can survive dancing together you can survive anything.

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.

I used to be of the impression that dance partnerships will not work out unless you meet on the dance floor for that purpose alone.  Then I had a friend, a beautiful girl, who talked me into a dance partnership.  I resisted heavily at first because I didn't want to gamble our friendship on our dance partnership.

Now she's my wife, and I can't imagine being married to any other.  I guess nothing ventured nothing gained!

Initially it was very difficult to separate the two relationships, the one on the floor and the one off the floor.  It required each other to let go of our egos and learn and grow much more than we ever initially anticipated.  Now it's clear to both of us that out of our two relationships, the dance partnership is much more difficult than marriage.  Cheesy

Hi Some Guy .... nice to see you here!!

Wow ego is definitely a theme that is coming up more and more. Thanks for such insight!

Hey Some Guy,

Good to see you here. It was a real pleasure to meet both of you last week in Baltimore. You are a beautiful couple Wink

.....and you didn't see me running down the hallway did you.

No, you didn't (thank God!).  Sorry, I was a little star-struck when I met you.  Next time I hope to utter a few more coherent sentences.    Cheesy

emeralddancer, it was wonderful to finally meet you!

So tell me true, how do you not fall for someone who is beautiful, who is graceful, who dances with you and whom you spend many intense hours together with?

My partner is my life partner in all ways but the... physical.

We spend every day together other than when we're working, when we travel for comps we go sightseeing together, if either of us needs a day off we still find ourselves texting back and forth. We have pet names for one another...

I want the partnership to take that last step, of course, but I'm absolutely convinced that one day I will be asking her to marry me. Whether that spells the end of the partnership, I don't know, but it's worth the risk.

There, as they say, is the rub.  the fact is that we are still just pawns in game of the gods, as the ancient greeks thought - if you are going to fall in love you will, whether your common sense tells you otherwise or not.  thus, this discussion is really moot - but its also fun (as in the game of the gods Smiley)
