    I can see how dancing could influence, and possibly improve, a man’s perception of manners and proper etiquette. For example, think of the following:

    1) Escorting a lady on the dance floor when the dance is beginning
    2) Escorting a lady off the dance floor, not just abandoning her on the dance floor when the dance is over
    3) Nicely asking a lady to dance
    4) Keeping the lady out of harm’s way as best as possible, especially if there’s bad floor craft by other couples
    5) Being considerate of the lady and her abilities; the man doesn’t show off with all his alleged best moves just to make himself look good; he’s only the frame and she’s the picture
    6) Making sure the lady enjoys the dance
    7) Not acting bored, or making the lady feel bad if she’s not as advanced as the man

    I think that too men are more sensitive to a woman's feelings. He's also more sensitive about where he puts his hands!!! ;)

    It just goes to prove that men are really humble creatures and all the news about female inequality is just propaganda. We are the nice people who do all the hard thinking on the floor, make the women look good, take all the risks and do the asking, deal with rejections and generally deal with all kinds of BS. OTOH, the women get to talk about how their feminity is elevated by pretty shoes and frolickly skirts :rolleyes:. BOOO!

    Lol. Oh dear... this boy has a lot to learn about being a man on the dance floor lol. Where's that Max guy when you need him??? ;)

    All I can say is... a boy wouldn't have to work that hard on the dance floor if he was already a man lol. ;)
