ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Hi! Thanks for stopping by.

If you read the tag line, then you understand that I am looking for a dancing partner. I've decided with the start of a new year, that I want to learn to salsa dance. While I can show up and find a random partner at the class, I thought I would see if anyone else out there is interested in joining me. If you think you are, then read on. If not, but would like to meet up to discuss world affairs, travel, etc., then let's find a coffee shop/wine bar and chat. I've lived around the world and traveled even more, and love to discuss world affairs. As background, I studied law, did a Fulbright to the EU, have a Masters in International Law, and work in an international field. If you don't see anything on my profile that interests you, I wish you luck in your search.

OK, dancing!!
So, after checking out various dating sites for a bit now, I've realized that it can be incredibly difficult to present yourself in a couple of paragraphs and some photos. Likewise, it is similarly difficult to really learn about someone through their profile. While the camera loves some people, the rest of us we do the best we can. The "real-life" version is (almost) always better. That being said, for those of us in this position, we have to then "prove" our wittiness, our suave, our charm, our whatever, via prose. This runs the risk of making us sound arrogant or cocky, or in the alternative uninteresting and bland (depending on the various tacts you take in writing your profile). So, I've decided that for me, what works best is the old fashion approach...get to know someone through actual conversation and interaction. I just decided that dancing would be this mechanism...its a win/win really...develop a new skill (or relearn, improve, etc), while getting to know someone better.

This is what I am proposing:
Now, this is the part that is difficult, because I'm sure I'll get emails complaining about what I am about to write. My apologies in advance. I'm open to other suggestions if you have them, just send me an email.

I live in Belmont Shore (in Long Beach, on the cusp of the OC...it is much, much better than it sounds, believe me!!). There is a dance studio here (http://www.lbdance.com), and they have salsa classes on Tuesdays at 7:00. This is what I am planning on, again, unless someone has other suggestions... This may also (likely) entail weekend practice sessions at some of the salsa bars around town...

As for a partner, I am 6'1", so on the taller side would be nice (5'5" - 5'10" perhaps?). I have done some swing, country swing, and some salsa in the past (when I performed in musicals...we can talk about that later...) and I have decent rhythm, I promise. If you are a beginner, then that is great, if you are a professional, then that is great as well. I welcome any any all. Also, I'd like to do this with someone in whom I am interested, and who is interested in me...even just possibly. Let's see what happens. Unfortunately, this takes us back to the original conundrum, I don't have much to go on other than your emails and your profiles. Be honest, as I am trying to be here, and let's chat. I hate this just as much as all of you do, so I'm just trying to figure out how to make it work better.

Thanks for reading, and I look forward to hearing from you.
Ryan
