Match.com, eHarmony, and Tinder – what do they have in common? They’re all ways for single people to meet and find a partner with whom they share common interests. However, they’re all accessed from your computer or smart phone. Call us old fashioned, but we prefer the tried and true method of human contact. Wouldn’t you agree that dancing with someone is more fun?
If you’re looking for a great way to meet people, here are five reasons why the dance floor is the place to do it.
- You Already Share A Common Interest
- You wouldn’t be anywhere near the dance floor if you didn’t have an interest in dancing, right? See that cute guy or girl leaning against the wall? They like dancing too! You should dance together.
- Never Again Say No To Another Dance
- Learning to dance helps you become more confident in your abilities. Be it the Salsa, Rumba, Waltz or Tango, you’ll walk out onto the dance floor and say to yourself: “I’ve got this!”
- It’s A Life Skill
- Whether you’re 25 or 52, the dance floor will always be a place for you to meet people from all walks of life.
- You’re Creating Memories With Someone New
- The instant you ask/agree to dance with someone, you’re creating a memory together, even if you’ve only known them briefly. You start with the dance request, connect for a song, and finish it off with a smile, knowing you just shared a moment together. Perhaps the first of many.
- This Is Real Life, Not The Internet
- We’re accustomed to saying “hi” from behind our cell phones or learning more about someone from their LinkedIn profile. Dancing gives us the opportunity to meet and interact with people in real life and have an amazing time doing it.
One of the most common questions asked by people interested in learning to dance is if they need a partner. And the answer? Not at all. Learning to dance on your own gives you the freedom and flexibility to customize your dance journey, teaches you to dance with a variety of people, and creates a skill you’ll use for the rest of your life. Who knows? It may even help you find your special one.
So repeat after me: “May I have this dance?”
