Salsa dancing guy – who is he? (part 1)

Today I would like to try to write a psychological portrait of a typical (?) Guy practicing salsa for a while. More precisely, not even a portrait, but a rough sketch, since the writer from me is useless. I will also try to answer a question that maybe interests non-dancing women (are there any?): What is it like to meet a guy who salsa dances.

A guy dancing salsa. He is not like everyone else. It can even be called a kind of unique. He is not afraid of mistakes and perceives this as an integral process of learning. Many people outside the dance floor consider him a slob for his not-so-serious life mood. However, when in one night of dancing you are mistaken a hundred, no, a thousand times, then how can you take everything very seriously after that? Damn, if he took his every mistake seriously, then he would go crazy in one party. So don’t be surprised that his life motive is “Don`t Worry, Be Happy”

If a guy dancing salsa asks how you are doing, then you are really interested in him as a person and he really wants to know you better. It would have been easy for him to invite you to the dance without uttering a word. Hell, most girls themselves will take his hand and lead him to the dance floor. However, he came up to you and asked: “How are you?” This means that he really wants to know how you are doing. Therefore, show respect and answer him with mutual courtesy.

The salsa dancing guy is an actor. Let the small scale, but still an actor. Like a chameleon, he can be transformed into whoever is needed and when necessary. It can be romantic, cheerful, calm or, conversely, violent, passionate and impetuous. In one night, he can change these roles ten times in a circle, depending on who he is dancing with and what music is playing at that moment. You can never know for sure why he smiles – he really likes to dance with you or he does it out of politeness. Or maybe he likes you as a girl?

The salsa dancer is restrained and possesses serious self-control. Even if they stepped on his foot with a ten-centimeter hairpin, after that he does not shout words from the songs of the Leningrad group to the whole hall. And if it so happened that during the dance other dancers flew into you, then he would not clutch at the throat of a partner from a neighboring couple with shouts: “I will kill you, scumbag!” If the partner who is dancing the salsa guy doesn’t manage to make some kind of turn or she doesn’t get into the rhythm, he will not call her mediocrity from this and all the more so he won’t leave him in the middle of the dance. And the guy dancing salsa, even in his most difficult days, does not break down on other people, because he knows very well that even the most unpleasant dance does not last forever. He knows that sooner or later the damned song will end and the next dance awaits him, which can cheer him up for the rest of the week. And the nearest salsa festival will obviously be enough to permanently erase the unfortunate event on the dance floor.

A guy dancing salsa is, in a way, a daredevil. Yes, perhaps he never fought in the night lane with armed bandits. It is also possible that he did not jump into a house blazing with fire in order to save someone’s kitten. But agree that in order to invite some of the most beautiful girls of the club to dance with you, understanding that in terms of dance they are much more experienced than you, eggs are required. Moreover, given the fact that they can easily refuse you or even humiliate you with anything. A salsa guy never knows what awaits him in the next five minutes. He never knows in advance whether this pretty foreigner will refuse him. He also cannot be sure that she will like to dance with him, just as he does not know whether he will like to dance with this girl. Suddenly his next five minutes of dance will turn into a nightmare in reality with an inadequate and half-drunk woman who does not know how to dance at all? And no man can be prepared for the fact that he will be thrown out in the midst of the dance in front of everyone.

The salsa dancing guy is a realist. He does not expect miracles from life and understands perfectly well that she will not present him success on a silver platter. He understands that only painstaking work can achieve even the smallest results; that nothing happens overnight and that you cannot go far on talent alone. He is aware that relations are not built in one day and is ready to work on their creation. A guy dancing salsa will not rush things and push you to a step, which you will probably both regret later.

The guy dancing salsa is not clamped by the complexes. He is not afraid to joke or once again show his sincere smile. He doesn’t give a damn what others might think of him. He just enjoys life and is not afraid to show it.
