Meeting people when you go dancing is super weird because (assuming you dance with them often enough for you to know them as a dancer) you develop this weird relationship where in some ways you know them really well, and in other ways you’ve never said two words to them- except for your names that you managed to scream over the music (which you forgot btw). But you still do get to know them. It’s just hard to understand how. OK- the way you dance with someone, the way they respond to your moves, the way they lead, and the type of chemistry the two of you have… they’re all relevant to what type of a person they are, not just dancing ability. And then it becomes a really weird mix because at this point you’ve known this person for weeks… maybe months, and you think of them as someone you really like and have fun with… but you still can’t remember their name, and because of the loud music you haven’t actually talked to them at all. All of this doesn’t even mean “like” like btw, it’s true for friendships too. When I think of the people I see when I go dancing, I’ll think of them and be like “oh yea i really like that person” and sometimes it’s “I don’t like them but they’re really fun to dance with” AND I’VE NEVER SPOKEN TO EITHER OF THEM. And then, to top it all off… when you are talking about someone you potentially “like” like, that feels different too. the dance becomes more sexual, but that’s not what it is- because dances with people you don’t get that vibe from can also get sexual because it’s a sexy ass dance (especially if it’s kizomba ) . It’s just this weird chemistry thing where you both understand that this time the sexyness and sensualness is more personal. And now it’s all weird when you kinda like someone and they kinda like you and you’ve gotten kinda comfortable around each other and you exchange phone numbers and still have to be like “what’s your name again”.
