I found this list somewhere on the web. I can answer yes to 99% of the items listed here! :D

You know you are tango addicted when:

* You keep a pair of dance shoes in your car.

* You make sure you never run out of breath mints or chewing gum.
* You copied all your tango music to your office computer and that's all you listen to 9 - 5
* You've danced with one of the biggies and survived.
* You own a tango t-shirt and wear it in public - constantly.
* Your descriptions of tango have shifted from "unbounded enthusiasm" to "you wouldn't understand...

I've never worn red either but now find myself drawn to clothes of that colour, even though I know red doesn't suit me. In fact, I seem to be drawn to any clothes that would be good for tango!
And, I've become a major fan of high heels - I live in trainers so the heels are taking some getting used to - I can actually dance better in them than I can walk at the moment.

Guilty as charged - I am new in this forum and new to A.T. - but I knew I was addicted when I begun explaing to my friends:
It's like a very bad virus, you can't be healed and you really don't want to be healed. It grows, it eats you up from the inside, and you know that BsAs is the ONLY place you wnat to spend holidays!

When you're sitting with non-dancing guy friends at a corner pub. They all look at women for there bodies. While you look at the posture, how they walk and how well they can move throu a croud.

It's 102 degrees outside, and all you want to do that evening is dance close to others in the top floor of a non-air conditioned building.

When your AT teacher asks you what other (non-AT) music you listen to...and all you can do is give him a blank look.

Non-AT music??? I think I vaguely recall something like that...in the long, long ago. Not sure though.
