Lately I don't ask men to dance because I never seem to be sitting down long enough to do so. But I totally would given the proper climate. Years ago I was in a follow-heavy scene and I did do a lot of asking back then. I agree, it guarantees you'll get to dance with who you want for what song, etc. Back then I had a reasonably large circle of friends who all met and we'd dance with each other, and we'd dance with strangers and we'd dance with ourselves.... :lol: It was good fun. I remember that I used to always scope out who seemed to be able to keep time when dancing (not necessarily had lots of moves, but they had to be able to stay on the beat) and not so overly involved in picking up chicks, and then if I found myself sitting out when I didn't want to be, I'd go find somebody I'd mentally tagged for a potential dance partner.
