Haven't posted here in a while so thought I may as well since I have some interesting news.
My BF and his DP have split up. I'm kind of happy about this as they were fighting constantly and now I have him all to myself again but am also feeling a little guilty for feeling happy.
I hope we (she and I) can still be friends.
BF kept complaining to me that she wasn't taking it seriously.
From what he told me, she would often turn up to a practice late, take half an hour getting ready while he was already on the floor waiting for her, practicing his own moves. She would then want to talk instead of practice.
If he was ever late and she waiting for him, she would just sit and watch the other couples instead of changing clothes/shoes and practice on her own. Then she would complain about him being late when her arrived, that he was wasting her time.
Or ........ well there was lots of complaining from both of them. I unfortunately had to sit through many lunches listening to her complaining of him as well. I got sick of listening to them and so am thinking that maybe it was for the better that they split up.
Now BF has asked me to attend some of his coaching lessons as a practice partner until he finds a new partner, which I am very happy to do.
We've discussed becoming dance partners but he is afraid that it might damage our relationship. He doesn't want to fight with me like he did with ex-DP. I don't think that would happen and we've decided to try out for a few weeks to see how we go.
We'll still look for other partners. He'll probably find one before me. Damn man drought!
I had another job interview today. This one with Arthur Murray. It's looking likely that I might be able to get a part time teaching job there.
I really enjoyed the interview. The manager at the studio was really nice and we connected really well. We were in rapport practically from the minute I walked into the studio.
The studio is quite small, only two male teachers and one woman. The woman is currently working full time but wants to go to part time so they are looking for a part time teacher to fill some of her hours.
Can't wait to hear back from them. I think I would fit in really well there!
