Relationships and Salsa - SF advice guide

It is understood that generally those outside of the salsa circle wouldn't be able to understand the whole social dancing scenario. The dance movement itself is very sexy and intimate. It would take lots of compromising and understanding to work any relationship in that matter. Good luck to us all!

Social dancing is, and has been, prevalent in various forms around the world for a very long time, be it Scottish ceilidhs, barn dances, balls etc. Yes there are parts of the world where these traditions are absent, but in general it's not such an alien concept to joe public. My girlfriend is a dancer, but not a salsa dancer, preferring solo performance to partnerwork for various reasons. The only issue we have is negotiating time that I can give to a time intensive interest that we don't share.

Are we really subject to having partners of the same interest....ie salsa or any form of dancing as others may not understand us?

First, welcome to SalsaForums, Sally!

Cold Salsero, I don't think you should be upset. A dance is just a dance. What's important is in the heart.
You do realize that this isn't really a question asked by our member ColdSalsero, but rather him suggesting another thread to be added to the first index post for the theme "Relationships and Salsa"? Discussions shouldn't necessarily take place below this index post but in the appropriate linked threads.

Yes, I was only adding another thread (not my own) that I thought belonged in this list. I have no problems with anyone dancing with other people (single or otherwise)! ;)

I'll have a look at those, as I just joined yesterday.

With the breaks I've taken, I think I have been going to socials for about 6 months, and agree with others that social dancing shouldn't be taken so seriously, it's there to practice our dancing and have fun.

I was wondering if it would be possible to group the "I don't like my boy/girlfriend dancing salsa" threads together, something like this?:

Should I be upset and worried that my boy/girlfriend dances (salsa) with other people?
Great idea ColdSalsero :) I've edited the top post and also created a whole new sticky thread dedicated to this topic:
