I am full of good advice...

...but sometimes I'm a touch too truthful.

One of the MITBDT rookies came up to me on Saturday and asked for advice on finding a dance partner. I told her all the standard things, like you should use the partnersearch web sites. I told her that is was tough for tall women to find partners in a sport that more women take up than men. I also told her that the best way to find a partner was to improve her dancing. She quite rightly pointed out that without a partner to practice with it was difficult to improve. I suggested pro-am lessons if they were within her means. When she didn't seem terribly enthusiatic I told her about the benefits of dancing with a more experienced man. That's when I got a little too honest. "You're probably not going to find a man to dance with who is better than you are unless you're paying him or sleeping with him." Um, yeah. To top it off, I'd also just recommended Dan as a pro-am instructer, so who knows, she might end up doing both.
