@RaeTRud: yeah, some people just don’t understand that some people just don’t like to dance!!! hubs and I love to dance, and were on the dance floor all night, but one of my best friends doesn’t and was out for a few dances, but hung out and talked with people most of the night. I don’t understand how people don’t realize that it makes them MORE uncomfortable to be singled out, and if people just ignored them, they would be more apt to get up and dance

Hahah yesssss.. yesss… yesss. it is annoying. lol..  I remember my Cousin during one of our family parties – they were all dancing, and he just grabbed me and forced me to dance with him in the big circle they all created on the dance floor.. haha I stood there for a good minute. Shook my body for a sec, politely smiled and walked away. well obviouly its not as lame as I wrote it, but I did walk away. haha

Oh Lord!!! Thank you!!  This happens to me at every event with a dance floor and it ruins the night for me.  I wind up feeling like a total kill-joy if I don’t attempt to smile and shake before walking away completely humiliated.  Just b/c I’m sitting and watching doesn’t mean I’m longing for a Footloose moment.

I dunno if I agree…I’ve been in a position where I kind of wanted to dance, but also kind of didn’t want to because I felt awkward for whatever reason, and it was actually really nice to have someone pull me onto the dance floor, at the very least to know that I’m wanted! And maybe I ended up having fun.

I know that all too well. Darling Husband and I are not dancers. He only danced with me maybe 3 times at our wedding and all were slow songs. I danced a little more with my bridesmaids but I certainly wasn’t ripping up the dance floor like some brides. I absolutely LOATH it when people insist on making others dance which is why conga lines are the bain of my existence. If I wanted to dance, I’ll dance. Being forced onto the dance floor just makes me hate it even more.
