LOL .... I honestly believe it could be instituted for any age at this point, I just feel like the past 30 years or so have done us such a disservice in that department. I know I need it and well .... actually getting it. LOL

(and teaching my kids too!)

I will go social dancing Friday - and you can be totally sure that I will only dance with DP.  However, he will want to dance every dance anyway - at least every standard one and no one there knows I can do latin too.....

My parents were absolute freaks about manners and respecting other people and their property.  I would never consider taking something that belonged to someone else or even expect to get something for pitching in to help out.  It's just what you did, no question.

I'm not sure where you are going with that R - are you talking about owning your partner?

We were talking about older men being more mannerly and how kids these days are not.  I was meaning that my parents were very mannerly and they instilled manners and honesty and helping others into us.  It seems like a lesson that is sorely lacking in many of today's youth.  At the dance studio I see how the kids are spoiled and have not respect for others.  When dancing the older men are more considerate.

Ah. I see.  I'm not sure I agree entirely though - I find the kids become more mannerly as they grow older.  I've been following a contingent of dancers originally from OLSI and they were exactly as you describe afout 3-4 years ago - but now they are so respectful and friendly, Ive been very pleasantly surprized.

I wonder if the real problem is that they do not learn how to interact with adults as children - perhaps one of the things that was picked up by going to church and other social events that we as kids were forced to do.... to be honest, I didn't think I would ever find anything positive in being made to go to church!!

Im confused here. What - do most men just grunt at you and walk onto the dance floor without looking to see whether you're following?

I have seen a man stand there put out his hand to a women not even look at her and start to click his fingers together...I would have not been polite if he tried to offer me a dance that way. It was like ok I'll do you a favor and dance with you. Roll Eyes
