Cool. I often *want* to dance every dance, but I can't control my moods. Sometimes I am in the mood to just ask anybody, but often I don't feel like interacting with strangers and quasi-acquaintances at all (meaning I recognize them but dont really know them). That is why I wish I had a regular dance partner to go with. It is nice when I have someone I totally feel comfortable around even when I'm in that weird mood where I don't want to dance with strangers. I used to have that, so I could dance as much or as little with others as my mood happened to be in. But not anymore. So its been harder recently.
I have been very lucky lately. To be honest, I can't believe my luck. I now have three boy friends that accompany me at parties (me and two more girls). Only a couple of nights ago, I told one of my friends that I'll call him my practice partner as the say in english meaning he is the one that helps me the most practice my moves. (If you are out there, you know I'm talking about you "TO ΠΛΟΙΟ ΓΕΡΝΕΙ!!!"). It does make a difference when you dance with someone on a regular basis. You can relax and not worry about who you are dancing with or if you are dancing with someone in the first place, so I really feel what you mean having spent so much time being out there on my own.
