I was reading through one of Katarzyna's posts and I realised that, while we talk about partner seaching and partner finding all the time in DF, we don't really have a clear picture on how people have found their dance partners. Might give the rest of us who are thinking of finding a partner or are fervertly in need of one a good idea of how it happens. And on a personal note, I'm just too curious to find out. Was it something that happened out of the blue, like you were shopping for kittie kibble and you couldn't pay the bill and s/he paid it for you in a "You've got mail" all Hollywood-like sorta way or did you go through tons of partners that were not at all compatible with you till one peaceful day you just found him/her and just clicked? Twilight Elena P.s. Clarifying: I'm not referring to Pro/Am partnerships, but rather Am/Am, Pro, or even partnerships that weren't formed for the sake of competitions but for the sake of practicing, having a good time, maybe even performing and maybe some day competing.
