I decided a few weeks back that I wouldn't let myself chicken out this time. On Friday I threw on my Beauty and the Beast dress, my dancing boots, and a can do attitude and headed there to dance the night away. I'm very happy that I went by myself for the first time. I got to spend hours dancing with strangers and relishing in the throw back jams they play if you show up as early as I did. On one of my trips to re-hydrate I bumped into a beautiful man who invited me to join his party of wonderful and kind nerds. They invited me right in and took the time to get to know some info about me. They also let me tag along and hang out with them for the rest of the evening. I had a great time dancing with the gentleman who invited me in, actually never been that in sync with someone on the dance floor before. Never been great at dancing with others, just a little too awkward for that. We may of shared a kiss or two which is just a lovely addition to quality dancing.
I panicked a bit later only because one of the women in the group, who I shit you not was the most beautiful woman in the whole building, actually seemed interested in me. When I first met her I got immediate butterflies and just assumed that the likelihood of her being interested in me was practically impossible. Hence the making out with the handsome and kind gentleman with great dance skills who is her friend. I didn't want to hurt his feelings or seem like I was just there trying to get play. One does not mess with friends so I was all set for knowing I screwed up my chances. In rare form for me, I was honest and told them both. Sure, chicken shit through text message since we all had headed to our respective homes by the time I realized I didn't want to just let her go. They were both actually really cool with me and I am hopeful for a date with her in the future. They live in the Springs so that makes things hard. No matter what I know I made some amazing new friends who are fun, kind, and great to dance with, and there is at least potential for more with a gorgeous woman whose dancing skills make me very happy. Just like me she enjoys the cheesy dance moves that are just a caricature of daily activities.
I feel it is necessary to point out wonderful conversations I had with others in the group. It is rare to come across a group of people and feel like you had a genuine connection with everyone in it. I now have a couple movies that I will be watching off of suggestions from my favorite dancer in the group. Honestly though her dancing was the happiest, purest form of dancing I've ever seen. She was the first one in the group to get my number because she just exudes kindness and care. We desperately need more people like that in this world! All in all the whole group was full of distinct individuals that share a love for theater, dancing, and just being badass as a lifestyle!
