@ctobride2be: If it’s appropriate dancing, by my standards, (no dirty dancing) and it’s with someone that he knows, yes. If we’re at a wedding, for example, and he wants to dance with his friend’s girlfriend or the bride or whatever, sure. If it’s inappropriate dancing, then no, never. If it’s with a stranger, regardless of how appropriately he was dancing, I probably wouldn’t like that all.

Bumping and grinding? Not bothered…I would be pissed…

I’m a VERY jealous person, so yeah! I would have a HUGE problem with him (dancing like at a club) with any female! I don’t care if I know her! My Fiance has a lot of “platonic friends” from before we met that would DIE to date him! He’s just totally, blissfully unaware (one of them hit me in the face with a white water rafting paddle! But don’t worry! it was “an accident!”)

on board with the general opinion: if i spied my boyfriend dancing with some random stranger girl i would be MAD. dancing casually with a friend would be fine, if it wasn’t some kind of sexy dance (the kind my boyfriend never does anyway haha)

Doesn’t bother me at all. I would be more surprised that he was actually dancing!

As long as no one is seductively grinding on the other, it wouldn’t bother me.

I wouldn’t care. I know he’s coming home with me. Plus, I’d just be happy to see him on the dance floor….and maybe score us a free drink or two! lol.

Agree with many others: if it was a friend cool, stranger not cool.

I don’t like him dancing with anyone else. Pretty much ever. Under any circumstances.

For me I don’t believe in dancing is dancing. At a wedding , ok that’s acceptable. Ballroom/salsa hmmm just maybe. However, at a club/lounge with a stranger or a friend is a no no. Especially if the female has her fanny on you or vice versa.

some times a dance is just a dance. No biggy. Now…if they were bumping and grinding it would be another story. but my Fiance doesn’t even dance that way WITH ME, so….
I ain’t got nothing to worry about…I’m the best dancer he knows…

@ctobride2be: At a club, no, I would not be OK with that because of the sexy implications club dancing has. Same at a bar. I find both of those environments a little icky. At a social dance– like a square or line or contra dance, where it’s a partner dance but you dance with others the whole way through too– I would be completely cool with it as long as he never was dance partners with the same woman twice (except for me of course!).
My perspective may be a little unusual since I met my SO at a contra dance and it’s something we enjoy frequently, without feeling weird about it at all. We dance with each other every other dance or so at one of those. When doing that type of social dancing it’s a little weird to only dance with one person all night.
If we were to go ballroom or salsa or swing dancing, I would expect the situation to be similar to how we arrange contra dancing, as those are all forms of social dance.

If someone that I didn’t know was attempting to use hubby as a stripper pole, honestly, I would probably walk up to him and try to one up her, she may of may not get a stiletto to the head and I would probably dangle my ring in her face…..
If it was anything else I would be fine with it. Hubby cannot dance to save his life…. really, when he shakes it….. stuff don’t stop shaking.
