I am a dance teacher and amateur competitor in West Coast Swing. You've probably never heard of it but I promise you it's the most enjoyable dances on the planet; after our first date you'll know what it is and maybe even know how to dance the basic steps! I love to dance and invest a lot of time introducing people to swing, teaching, developing the dance community, and improving my own dance. I actively compete and travel out of state and am currently working on a pro-am routine with my coach. I've met a lot of interesting people and great friends through dancing and it is a huge part of my life. I am looking for a woman who is confident enough to try new things and might like to give swing dancing a try, or who is equally passionate about some other activity or cause that I could experience with her.
Through dancing, I have been able to give back to the community by advising swing dance clubs at two universities, teaching children how to dance, and performing at local fundraisers. I have even been a part of some local Dancing with the Stars events to help raise money for programs that help kids stay in school and give them a voice when they don’t have someone to turn to. I have a career that I love and a hobby that allows me to showcase my talents while introducing others to something that has made my life happier: I am one lucky guy!
I am looking for a partner is confident and willing to try new things. I travel a lot and have many platonic female friends but not all women are okay with that. I am a loyal and honorable guy so I'm upfront about this big part of my life from the get-go because I know not everyone can handle it. It's also important to me that my partner have interests that she is equally passionate about that I can experience with her
As for my other interests, I am a pretty eclectic. I work out regularly and strive to keep fit and eat right. When it comes to music I especially enjoy live bands with friends. I also enjoy most movies but especially romantic comedies: yes, I said it, I like chick flicks! A part of me wishes dating was like a classic romantic movie where you end up giving the girl your letterman jacket at the end; call me old-fashioned, but I’m all about chivalry and treating a lady like a lady. I love sports but I also enjoy the arts and make an effort to see plays and such. I’ve also been known to get up early on a Saturday for a craft show!
Finally, I am a very proud uncle to a niece and nephew who are getting into their teen years. I love taking care of them anyway I can and look forward to having kids of my own someday.
I hope we can chat soon! Have a great day.
