My Lindy Hop dancing is improving and so is my confidence, but I still have something of a problem with rejections. On a typical social dance night, I guess that I dance with between 10 and 20 women, and I probably get 1 or 2 rejections. It's hard to get the rejections out of my head. A few recent examples: 1. Girl (sitting on her own) looked down to one side and silently shook her head and waved me away when I started to ask her. 2. Woman was talking to a female friend, and after I approached her to ask for a dance, said 'no, not at the moment' When I talk to my male dancing friends, they seem a bit surprised that I get this number of rejections. I try to not to dwell on the rejecters too much, and concentrate on the majority of women who are happy to dance with me. But it still bothers me. Firstly, that they don't want to dance with me. Secondly, that it is harder to ask another girl if her friend has already said no. I would be interested in any views, especially from leaders who may have encountered anything similar. :?
