    At Southport
    "Would you go fixed couple with me for the next class? I really don't want to dance with any more crap dancers"

    How could I refuse that request

    Re: Dance Related Compliments...

    I haven't had a memorable compliment for what seems like ages but last night a guy said to me "you have very good hands" - hopefully he wasn't complimenting my nail varnish but I now wish I'd asked for further elaboration .... (It didn't hurt that he was good-looking and young as well! )

    Looking back I tend to get more compliments from younger men and more criticisms from older ones - why is this? Are younger men more flexible in what they expect?

    My guess would be that it's a cultural difference - perhaps younger people are free-er with compliments because they're less afraid of it being taken as too forward. But I don't know. I tend to get compliments from men of all ages, but this might be because I'm one of the youngest women who go to this venue (I don't know your age, sorry).

    I find the younger dancers more polite, in my experience, I have been refused more by older men too.

    My compliment, from someone who will remain unnamed for now and that I have not danced with in a while. At least made me laugh but should have made me cry! 'Dancing with you is like slipping on a comfortable old pair of slippers' Gee thanks, that me feel really good!!!

    "I've been trying to work up the confidence to dance with you for 3 years"

    I'm sure it was meant as a compliment, but all I could think of was "surely I'm not THAT scary?"

    I actually said that to someone except that it was 6 years. Amazingly she asked me for more dances she was a teacher. One of my best nights.

    Re: Dance Related Compliments...

    In the intermediate class one of the guys didn't notice that I'm tall and put his hand on my bum instead of my lower back. I pointed out to him that he was holding my bum, and he apologised and then said "but it was quite nice"

    Yeah... "Oh, sorry, is that your bum? I didn't notice that's where my hand was..."

    I don't think I've used that line myself, but now I might have to...

    "You're better at this wiggly stuff than I am."

    (Mind you, that's got to be a particularity - not a generality.)

    "Perfect .... Lovely" After an amazing double dance last night.. Grinning all over my face today, particularly because of who said it.

    On a similar note, last week by ex-boyfriend was told he should be a woman because he was so good at wiggling.

    Personally, I'm all for gender equality in wiggling

    Wiggling is a good thing, I think the only thing to be wary of is not out-wiggling your partner!

    Re: Dance Related Compliments...

    "That was impressive.": from an intermediate onlooker lady as I returned to my seat. Which led to a little chat in which I remarked that I'd always had a good connection with that particular "light as a feather" partner who always added her own unique styling. After this conversation I could hardly not invite this lady, who I had hitherto found rather heavy going, to dance. And it turned out to be a rather rewarding dance with a better, and lighter, connection than we'd ever achieved before. Smiles all round :-)

    After a really enjoyable dance to Sade's "Smooth Operator" my partner said that the title of the song really described my dancing.

    And the answer was double-trouble?
