So, dancing circles tend to be touchy/affectionate -- with at least hugs of greeting, etc. And then, of course, there's oftentimes flirting and one or both parties considering dating, etc. I've had it happen with male friends that they'll come with a date to a dance venue (someone who I've never seen out or a non-dancer) and suddenly they give me serious *don't touch me* vibes. I know that they must do this for the benefit of their date (so she doesn't feel threatened, etc.), but it makes me feel badly. Particularly if it's someone I've never had interest in, it's frustrating to feel suddenly distanced from a good & simple friend. If it's someone I am interested in, well that's another story, but completely understandable too. Anyone- experience with this? How do you deal with it?
