"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.
"In my experience, I have found it to be true that most men really do suck at friendship in a big way. I don't pretend to understand why or have a grasp on all the personal and social issues and pressures that may or may not be…"
I believe that boys should use their time primarily to prepare for manhood. This group is for young men, dads, and other men who have opinions they'd like to share on how boys should grow up or be raised.
"I drink a lot of probiotic yogurt and pop the fiber pills... I don't want to get too gross but suffice to say that were my toilet to write a customer review on Amazon, it would say "The package arrived on time and in the desired…"
"There was no mockery in my reply to your bizarre, paranoid, flat-out wrong description of the circumstances surrounding the closure of the refinery. Just facts 'n' stuff.
I really think you should get "men skilled in the…"
"J.L.P: "In contrast to you, I could not possibly care less about your opinion of me. Positive or negative."
On the contrary, Johnny. You crave attention. You are just as narcissistic as you claim Josh to be, and who you…"
