Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First off, I'd love to meet some great dance partners, no
strings/etc attached! Well OK, I'd also like to be able to chat
with you between tracks :-)
I'm out partner dancing three nights a week. (The other nights I do
stretching or conditioning workouts for dancing.)
I'm single, 6'1, trim, athletic, objectively handsome/hot (better
in person than the pics, I'm told), well-dressed, and young for my
age in appearance and energy.
Romance-wise, I seek a long-term (i.e. life-long) bond with a very
intelligent, charming, graceful, pretty, precocious, industrious,
self-aware girl, 20s to mid-30s, petite to average height, slender
to athletic build, and with a noticeable figure.
Beyond dance, I delight in philosophical conversation,
theatrical-quality tomfoolery, walks in the city and country, and
absorbing and pondering the universe together. I'm an intense
fellow, a native New Yorker; you might enjoy me more if you're a
Right Coaster yourself.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Off the dance floor, I'm an ambitious high-tech entrepreneur,
working in new territory. (No, not a web site or phone app!) I'd
appreciate a gal who's technology-literate.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a passionate, talented partner dancing fool. I've picked up a
variety of ballroom and folkloric forms over the years -- latin,
swing, contra, contact improv, samba, various african, hip-hop,
tap... What I most love is to weave a mix of these into an
improvisational duet with a gal who can match me. Preferably
barefoot on a clean, silky, hardwood floor. If you lack ballroom
experience, but have a background in artistic dance (jazz, modern,
lyrical) plus excellent rhythm and dramatic flair, I can teach you
As a romantic partner, I'm loving, responsible, unfailingly honest,
curious, nurturing, devoted, vulnerable. I crave the deepest
possible intimacy. But I'm also demanding, possessive, protective,
fatherly. Eventually, I'd like my girl to work for me, as I love
collaborating with a partner.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If dancing solo, you'd notice a tall, graceful fellow blending an
entertaining mix of samba, modern, broadway, and music-video.
If partner dancing, you'd notice a dapper, enchanting gentleman
mesmerizing a graceful, playful partner.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I devour the NY Times daily online. I don't have a TV, but watch a
bit of tennis online.
Music: anything with an irresistible dance hook... It Wasn't
Me by Shaggy is a great example.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A creative, energetic dance partner.
A brilliant idea no one's thought of.
A workable plan to realize said idea.
A cup of cocoa with a handful of cashews.
A challenging strength & conditioning workout.
An otherworldly connection with you.
Deep and diverse people in my life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What's disappointing about the world, and people, and how it could
be improved. I'm likely to share such things with you; don't take
this as negativity.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Taking you to a dance.
Stretching and warming up with you by the wall.
Easing into our duet gently.
Gradually increasing the range and tempo of our dance.
Turning you, lifting you, dipping you.
Taking opportunities to press my lips to your neck.
Caressing you suggestively but subtly.
Coming to stillness with you.
Beaming at you, embracing you, kissing you.
... and if you were my committed partner ...
Taking you home.
Showering with you.
Doing you ferociously, cruelly, adoringly.
Curling around you in bed.
Plunging together into an exhausted sleep.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
In the bedroom, I can be ferocious, even cruel. Honestly I often
wish this wasn't an essential feature of my sexuality, as it limits
me to women with a taste for darkness. But I seem to have been, as
they say, born this way.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like to chat! I find IM useful to establish basic compatibility
and trade backgrounds... and links to dance vids :-)
You're willing to go dancing after a drink on the first date. I'm
better at showing a stranger who I am with the language of bodies
in motion than mere English.
You wish to belong to someone exceptional. I may flirt avidly on
the dance floor, but I won't take you home with me unless there's a
strong chance you'll remain there. I won't suggest sex or kink
unless you seems like a superb long-term candidate.
