    everyone should spend hours laughing and dancing like this.


    p.s. @AphroditeGoneAwry/@Qlip so much could be gained by being closer!
    Closer to whom? Each other, or to you?

    you sound like you've travelled to emotionally warmer climes.
    Can you elaborate on this?

    familial dissonance is one of the most bizarre and jarring aspects of american society (i still can't understand why so many americans get stomach aches before they go home to see their family. i speak or text with several members of mine daily and consider them my closest, most beloved friends. my heart aches when we're apart. and friends! they welcome my friends into our family like long lost relatives who must be patted and petted and fed delicious food and wine and sangrias non-stop.) my friendly, touchy-feely, always-laughing, passionate culture.
    jelly. I want to be petted and fed sangrias.

    seriously, it's a really good question. you're part of the borg when you're born into the kind of culture i refer to...where the sole purpose is To Have A Good Time.

    i'm one of 2 extroverts in a family of 10 children. 2 extroverts i tell you! the rest are INs. yet when we get together there are philosophical discussions and debates, yes, but also laughter and hugging and constant stream of affection--whether it is a warm smile or a caress or just playing with someone's hair while you catch them up on the latest. and yes. dancing. how can you not dance, when you start the day with mama's food and mimosas, then graduate to dos equis at lunch then wine with dinner? the introverts were taught to dance from a young age like everyone else, and while they may have mastered the art of twitching their hips to the music while others twirl, they certainly don't absent themselves from the fun.

    my boyfriends are generally introverts and get sucked into it, too. they usually want to vacation/holiday with mine over theirs. even, er, after we're no longer a couple.

    i can relate. that is exactly how i feel when i am not with my family. and all the salsa unitards in the world cannot make it right.
    I may be kindly, I am ordinarily gentle, but in my line of business I am obliged to will terribly what I will at all.

    Up until disco in the 70s, or at least up until the dances of the 60s, average people danced, young and old, whether it was strictly ballroom, the foxtrot, a waltz, the twist, or the Charleston. I notice this because I like to dance and grew up taking theatrical dance like ballet and tap, and also even took a shag class in middle school. My great aunt taught me to Charleston, and my grandfathers wife taught me some 50s and 60s style dancing.

    Dude people are fuckin fat and depressed. Music is negative, angry, and depressing for a disturbing segment of it and totally fuckin un-danceable.

    I believe the two things are connected. The loss of uplifting music that had dance steps accompanying it signifies the downfall of Western civilization.

    I have decided I will marry a man who isn't afraid to learn how to dance. Marmie needs a nice hobby when she's old.

    Anyway, discuss.
    I can't do the modern day grind dance. After all, it is way too sexual. Every time that I try to grind dance, I just get super hard and just wind up wanting to have sex with the female that I'm dancing with.

    This love even extends to my search for that special someone...

    Every single serious relationship I've had has been with someone who knew how to dance.
    I can't dance for shit. I wish I could though.

    I think culture was even healthier when we still had slaves. The downfall of western civilization began when slavery was de-legitimized.
    Whoops.
