"I could not agree more, Jeffrey. That right level of confidence makes all the difference. I reckon it's not the confidence that nothing will go wrong, but the confidence, that no matter what does go wrong, you can handle it."
"While I would not say that a leader could lead ANY follower who did not know what you are doing, I do agree that it can sometimes be possible. A lot of it (from what I have found) depends on how much the follower will actually follow. I…"
"Indeed they do - but that means you also need to know their level. Based on how long you've been dancing for now, you probably can do this.
It reminds me of a tango (Argentinian) class i was at. The female teacher told me that I was now ready…"
"I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you are interested in this woman for more than her money. If not, I cannot offer you any advice that will prove effective for a lasting relationship. (If it is only her money that…"
""All men by nature desire to be happy." - Aristotle in Nicomachean Ethics
Aristotle takes that entire work to answer the question you stated so succinctly. People are often thrown off course by the word,…"
"Thanks, Jeffrey, for taking the time to write such a comprehensive note. It's well articulated and very helpful. I will take your advice. I think the dance we will concentrate on improving next will be the nightclub two-step. Thanks again for…"
"Exactly what dances you begin with often depends on what's being taught when you're available. Look for nearby dance studios and find out what classes they're offering. If you ask the studio, they will surely be able to…"
"Thanks, Rob, for your insight. My wife and I have been social dancing for about a year now. So far, we have tackled the foxtrot, the single-time swing (jitterbug?), the waltz, the hustle and the salsa. I wouldn't be so rash as to say we have…"
"Thanks, Leonardo. It is difficult here in Ohio to find venues that feature Latin music. In any event, the tango does look as if it would be difficult to learn, so good luck if you decide to keep at it.
It was interesting hearing from someone in…"
"Depends what kinda thing you're after - I would probably recommend Waltz and Jive. Girls love a good waltz, the slowness and the closeness of it (at least if you're dancing it romantically, rather than competitively). The jive is a good…"
"I live in Brazil, so I wouldn't recommend you the same dances we dance here.
Two nice dances that you can find anywhere are salsa and bolero. Tango looks nice, but I just had two tango classes and it does look hard to learn (I started dancing…"
Hi John. Welcome to AoM. Also, thought I'd give you a friendly invite to check out my relatively new group, The Great Debate. Just click on "Groups." It's the one with the colorful galaxy picture. It's also one of the most active groups on AoM. In any case, great to have you aboard.
"Shut it down. As gratifying as it is to be getting a girl's attention, it's your BEST FRIEND'S GIRLFRIEND'S attention and that's not anything you want to be messing with. She could be having issues with him, it could be just…"
"You're going too fast. Not just for her ... but for you. There's no reason you should be thinking about uprooting yourself and moving after dating a girl for less than a month. At that rate, you'll have her at the…"
"I wonder how many car break-ins go unreported. When you have a rash of break-ins, security is beefed up. But we don't see that with sexual assaults. Of course, sexual assault isn't as easily addressed by hiring an extra…"
"I don't want you to lose what you have by smothering it. Listen to your gut here. It doesn't seem to be blinded by your attachment or emotions. You are more invested. You have more invested. That is not an attractive quality. A month is…"
"Seems odd here in a way-talking to some of the guys and mentioning your same sex attraction as part of the discussion about yourself and your development into manhood sure seems real off limits. Not graphic, even mentioning it. I stopped…"
