Today at work I had winamp open on my laptop and I was dancing around merrily as if no one was watching. When all of a sudden this guy pops his head around the corner. I was immediately startled and let out this movie scream. (It was awesome.) Then he stood there stunned and then said, "nice dancing there. " I was like, "How long were you watching?" He says with a grin, "Oh, I don't know. 10 minutes or so." I says, "you're shitting me right?" He says nothing and continues to have a smile on his face that stretched from ear to ear. I was so embarrased. :blushing: Especially dancing like I was thinking that no one was watching. I look at him seriously and say, "that's not cool. What the fuck are you doing back here? You need to get the fuck out." LOL
Anyways, I find dancing fun and lots of it. So much so I have taken classes to learn different styles of dance. I also find that dancing with a guy that can't dance what-so-ever is the cutest thing.
*lolol* Thankfully nobody has caught me in the act [YET ] however...I'd probably be mortified and maybe not so defensive. I can imagine myself standing there, beet red in the face with nothing to offer up for myself except "Don't tell me you never do this, too." Smooth way to counter your embarrassment-- turn it around on the one who has caught you in the moment *lol*
Guys who stumble while dancing..yes..it's very cute It brings out that boyishness inside of them...too adorable
I went to a club this weekend (for the first time in two years), and my guy friend came and it was amazing. He's not coordinated at all, but he just went at it like no one was looking. And I got attacked by Patrick Swayze in a mask.
My sweet, irritating spouse, in his beatific angel costume, took it upon himself to snuggle me on the dance floor Friday night. Something we haven't done for quite a while. I took some belly dancing classes for the fun of it and he did some line-dancing for a while. But it's been many moons since we went out specifically to dance.
It was Elvis - "Wise men say, only fools rush in. . ." Pretty ludicrous. And we were zapped by time machine to the Fifties. Entranced. Too kewl.
Suddenly I awoke and realized this angel and demon were gazing into each other's eyes and making a very tight circle round and round like a pair of, um, ninnies. When the last croon was crooned he leaned over me and gave me a kiss right in front of gawd and everybody. This man hasn't done that for decades!
(Young) people applauded and I hadn't realized we were nearly alone and that we were being watched. Gosh.
It was a moment for the memory banks, for sure. And, yes, totally absurd. Sigh.

I love dancing because it is joyful. I don't do it to impress people - in fact, I dance mostly in private because I'm not great at it. I just can't help myself though, some music makes my feet tap instinctively. It's probably the only time my 'S' gets any real exercise (and the rest of me too!)
See, you are just perpetuating cultural stereotypes, all by yourself.
based on my observations, dancing seems to be most often enjoyed as a form of expressing one's emotional reflection of music. it would not necessarily be illogical to say that those who enjoy such emotional expression are likely emotionally expressive in general, not something males are generally valued for (there is legitimate reasoning behind that as well)
stereotypes can often become ignorant in mass application, but are far less so in creation
