We are practically perfect, height-wise.
Her favorite dances are of the Rumba, Tango, Paso Doble variety. My favorite dances are of the Rumba, Tango, Paso Doble variety.

Excellent partnering, yes?
The last match is actually how we met. She was discussing such a need with a mutual friend of ours. She mentioned that her mom had told her to find a gay Ballroom partner. Mutual friend immediately thought of me! The referral was made, we met last Saturday, and the rest is future--yet to be seen, but a positive future, me-thinks.
It gets even better: I get to co-teach and choreograph for a small team. Sha. Zam.
... and it's all because I'm openly gay...
Life. Is. Good.
