I've seen both sides I think.  Started dancing with now ex-girlfriend but have started dating somebody I met dancing.  We'll see how it goes...


I did that as well...I dragged my ex into dancing and he didn't like it so he quit. About a year later we broke up and in the meantime I had been dancing with someone else. I'm now dating that someone else.

I often find that if you dont have the same passion it is much harder to maintain a relationship. My first husband was a car/bike enthusiast and I had no passion about those things at all, he would not dance for me. Nothing in common except for our children....

I know it can work the other way round but you have to be the right personality type.

We are after all, all different

Ideally my life partner would be another dancer, but not necessarily my dancepartner, not even necessarily a ballroom dancer. Difficult to explain, but I guess I have a "thing" for dancers. So far all the girls I've been in a relationship with (ok..only 2) are or have been dancers!

Yeah, I was dating a ballet girl for a few years... she was awesome. Dancers are a special breed of people :-)

I just find that while he supported my passion, now he well hates it.

it is definitely putting a strain .... but I think it is because he sees my happiness and me coming into my own, and I do not need to reach to him to find acceptance and happiness anymore. I found me!

If to do over ... I would find another dancer

it seems to me that in general it's difficult enough to maintain a relationship without the added strain being of competitive dance partners also.  when there is unresolved conflict, it's virtually impossible to separate that from the dancing. it's also my take that if any partnership claims to be perfectly happy, at least one person is probably lying.

Just be sure to find a dancer that has "found" you too...take it from someone who hasn't, and therefore knows.

I am glad that my partner and I only had the dance business relationship to work on. Smiley I have a feeling that one of us would be dead now, if we had lived together and been romantically involved.  Shocked Tongue

Only truly weak or truly strong women can be led....
