I want to learn how to dance

OK, here goes again.

I was raised Irish Catholic. I went to Catholic schools from Kindergarten to grade 12 and would have gone to Catholic college if my father had lived. So, I "might" have been a bit repressed growing up. (At age 13 I promised myself that I would masturbate only until I needed glasses, then no more.)

I never felt comfortable in social situations and so when it came time to go to dances, I went, but never really danced. Oh, sure, I got out and moved to the beat for the faster dances, (it was the 60s) but slow dancing was something I never did.

So, now I want to find a comfort zone with a woman and learn about dancing. I mean the coordinated movement of two people to music. I think it can be wonderfully sexy and intimate and beautiful to watch. I have watched couples who have obviously danced together for a long time just meld into one being and get lost in the music. That is where I want to be.

The real thing that has held me back is the probability that I will a) look foolish and b) step all over a partner's toes. This really makes me nervous and it has got to stop. I have jumped out of perfectly good airplanes with less concern than the thought of dancing raises up in me.


And this is one of the things that blogging is good for. Now that I have said it and it is out there -- I have to go and do it. Damn this man code!!!

Wear soft soled shoes to lessen the injuries..LOL..When your brave partner's feet recover from the pain and her body is molded into yours, a warm sexy feeling will fill your loins and you will glide across the floor like you've been slow-dancing all year long..(smile)..Good Luck

I always wanted to take dancing lessons with my ex, but he never would do it.
