    Oh LC. The woman who lands you will have a treasure.. Honestly. A treasure.

    Take your time and make your pick. And talk to experienced men in the meantime. You will be an awesome husband.

    no...there is nothing silly in being conscientious...but it can also be important to not have an over-inflated...pardon the pun...sense that it will go swimmingly just because you've done alot of reading...and it is more important to pick someone who doesn't expect that as she is probably going to be equally inexperienced...but also because presumably, she loves you and is willing to go on that journey over time...but again, for now, it's probably best...on this thread, to stick to how to actually pursue someone you dance that is about as far from the initial question as we ought to stray...other issues, if appropriate at all, can become other threads

    and how many posters using several usernames to troll with....?

    In fact, they might turn out to be rewarding and fulfilling relationships in their own rights, even if they don't lead to marriage.

    You're not gonna learn to be a sex god from a book. Trust me, it does NOT work that way. At all. Remotely.

    And seriously, if you are truly looking for a girl who shares your outlook on waiting, etc. seriously look into going to a church. Single most successful 'college couple' I know met at Newman Club (for you Protestant types reading that's basically Catholic bible study). He (keydet from VMI) swears that he knew the moment he saw her (one of my friends from W&L), though it took them a while to start dating. Longest relationship I recall from school (he and I did a Marx Brothers-worthy routine so I could swipe one of her rings so he could have a VMI class-ring miniature made for her in the right size-how she didn't figure out what we were up to, I don't know....), based on not strategizing and reading manuals and trying to figure out What Women Want but meeting, going out, and seeing how it worked. (And yes, like the majority of VMI students, he's an engineer. The relationship didn't happen because of analysis, it happened because he went to the right place to meet a girl who'd probably be compatible.)

    there are also questions on some match sites...and I only know because I had a friend for whom this was a major priority...regarding importance of "waiting"...and while you greatly narrow your range, if that is a priority, that is a way of screening for it...the ratio in a ballroom studio...hmmmm...dunoo...but not betting on it being your best shot

    Based on what I have read on this thread, you will have a long wait. Women want to be led, whether that's in the ballroom or to the bedroom. Probably more so when it comes to the alter.

    One thing that hasn't been discussed here is whether women at ballrooms have more of a need to be led to these things than the general population of females. Or, perhaps female dancers get conditioned to being led so they expect it more. For sure some females seem to become more assertive once dancing increases their confidence. I don't have a clue either way and don't pretend to know the answers. Perhaps this would be good for a new thread.

    again, probably a sweeping generalization ...

    I gotta say, the one thought that keeps coming back to mind as I read this thread* is that a whole lot of the attitudes on display here, and the "knowledge" about what women want in a relationship, so totally goes to explain why some people are still single. Good [expletive deleted] grief.

    *I keep trying not to. But this thread is like a train wreck where you can't help but look.
