It’s a new record

Well, we are now into week four of our expedition into online dating and am I relieved to say that I have received another email! This one is looking good, it has already lasted twice as long as all the previous email conversations put together.


Saying that…
As I write this it seems to have gone quiet. You know, I think I may have stumbled on to something here.
It could be that she has just gone to make some dinner, which is quite likely given the time, or maybe it’s because I said I like dancing. All my email conversations seem to have ended the moment I say I like Tango, Waltz, Jive and what-have-you. Not that I ever ask for what-have-you. Not on a first date. Seriously though, has dancing become some dark, cult thing?


Personally, I think dancing is great! I cant get enough of it and honestly believe it’s the best social activity I have had the pleasure of getting dragged into. Unfortunately I lost my dancing partner back in the day for reasons that shall not be mentioned (but it wasn’t me). I have been trying to find another partner, for both dance and life, but obviously none of my matches so far are dancers. In fact, they all scarpered at the very mention of it.


As always, I will continue to scour the dating sites looking for the one (no, not Neo) and keep you informed of any news.

Please keep your fingers crossed for me folks as it’s far from over yet.


One thought on “It’s a new record

  1. About 15 years ago I took up Salsa dancing. I’d seen a demonstration in a nightclub and decided I wanted to learn to move like that. I was supposed to go with my mate and her sister, but they chickened out, so I went on my own. I started off going to a class once a week, then 2, then 3, plus weekend workshops, so I was dancing 4 or 5 nights a week. Unfortunately men were scarce, which meant ladies either had to pair up or dance solo, which isnt nearly as good.

    Sadly, after 6 months of intensive dancing I developed problems with my feet. All that dancing on my toes revealed an underlying congenital defect and I nearly ended up crippling myself. I was told I had to stop dancing or I might be unable to walk. I was devastated, and I missed dancing like crazy for several years after. I still do, although less so now. I generally miss walking now(!)

    All of this is to say that I understand your love of dancing. I have to say, what with the popularity of Strictly, I’d have thought the ladies would be lining up to dance with you! I’ve always been partial to a man who can move well on the dance floor.

    Hopefully your lady was just hungry and will be back in touch tomorrow.
