I am happily married. My wife is an excellent dancer and I enjoy dancing with her. But -- I have a gut-wrenching dance crush on a woman that I started dancing with (also happliy married as best I know) a few weeks ago. We are dancing together perhaps 6-8 hours per week, part of which is co-instructing, part of which is working together on our dance (she & I have different core dances and we are cross-training each other) and part of which is just joyous dancing. Oh - and my wife is at least somewhat aware of the crush and has taken to referring to this partner as "my new girlfriend". I emphasize that, for a whole variety of reasons, there is essentially zero chance of this becoming a romantic liason outside the dance floor - which suits me just fine. I do not need more complication in my life!!! Question: How to manage this?? In the long run I suspect that my emotions will calm down somewhat, but for the now do I mention it to my new partner?, suffer in silence?, try to ratchet down our time together on the floor?, try my best to just ignore it? Ladies - what would you like me to do if you were my new crush?? And this is not a teacher/student issue. We are both primarily social dancers, but of a sufficiently high caliber that we also are the primary instructors in our respective social dance scenes in town. In all my years of dance I have never experienced anything quite like this. And perhaps I just needed to get this out there and don't dare discuss it with anyone I know personally.
