Do you enjoy dancing? I do.
Gwynly knows this, so he surprised me recently by signing us up for ballroom dance lessons through our local Parks and Recreation Department.
We’re having lots of fun learning. Our focus so far is East Coast Swing. We’ve mastered a couple of basic turns and haven’t stepped on any toes in the process.
I asked one of the young men why he and his girlfriend are there. He said the lessons were his Valentine’s Day present to her. It’s what she really wanted, so he made it happen. My romance writer’s heart loved hearing that.
Shared activities are important in any relationship, especially a romantic one. Sometimes it can be a challenge to find mutual interests, but it’s worth it to do some experimentation. The rewards are many.
The young man I was talking with admitted that he’s having more fun than he expected. I can tell by her smiles that his girlfriend is happy. Gwynly and I are certainly having a blast.
