So I met this guy...

Since people seem to like these stories, and I like the chance to type things out...

One of my hobbies is ballroom dancing. Most of the time when I go to social ballroom events, the people there are quite a bit older than me. However, the past two times there have been two new guys who are younger, as in closer to my age, and one in particular has caught my eye. Both times he has not only asked me for dances, but also initiated conversation with me. It's funny because when I asked him what got him interested in dancing, he mentioned wanting a means to kind of get out of his shell as he can sometimes be shy (not something I would have guess based on initiating said conversation). A sign? Or just my overactive romantic notions?

I don't know much about him of course, having only spoken with him twice now, but I can't help but hope that perhaps this could lead to something. I want to be careful not to get too hopeful too quickly, but at the same time I want to avoid my tendency to be fearful and distant out of fear that it won't work out. It's a good sign to me that a) he mentioned his church (I'm a christian and it's important to me that a future partner be as well), and b) if he's taking dance lessons that probably means he's employed, lol. I tried looking him up on facebook (wasn't sure if I would friend him quite yet, but I am nosy, haha), but I couldn't find him because I don't know his last name.

If you read this far, I thank you. Not really sure why I'm posting, but feel free to comment (especially if you have any advice) or not as you wish. I'll try to keep you updated if anything comes of this. I'm hoping that if it's not meant to be, my interest will just fade so I don't waste time, but there's always a chance!

We just talked today about church about opening our hearts to possibilities - road to Emmaus, Luke 24. Maybe this will be your moment. Have patience to let it unfold, but open yourself to the possibility. How exciting!

If you can think of this as starting a new friendship, maybe it won't seem so nerve-wracking! Good luck! Talk about Dancing With the Stars with him.

Thanks all! I'll definitely let you know if there are any updates. Right now I'm just trying to remember that it's a new friendship so I don't get my expectations too high, too fast.

I think its uber cool that you do ballroom dancing! I wish I had the guts to go alone. I took dancing lessons right before my son's wedding. It boosted my confidence and made me so happy.

I think it's neat that you now have a new friend and dance partner and who knows where it will lead. Just enjoy it as it comes.
