He comes to practise!

Dear Caroline!

I'm into competitive partner dancing for 3 years. I'm currently dancing with my second partner. He is really talented, although he's a beginner comparing with me, and he learns really fast. But he is really moody, and I never know if we're going to practise the next day or not, or if we're going to competition or not. I can never count on him. He comes to practise, then complains all the time: "Oh, I'm so tired, I'm not motivated today" or "My leg hurts, I don't know what to do." Or he calls me the day before the competition to say something's come up and he can't come. He is often depressed or nervous, and the other time he's extremely happy, jumping up and down. The result is, we're not practising enough, and I feel so bad about everything. The results on competitions are still very good, because of his talent and my experience. I've decided to break up with him, but I've always changed my mind, because I hope he'll change (we've already discussed that), because it's not very good to change partners, and because he really is talented, and there are no many male dancers around after all.

I've already lost one partner, and was really hurt by his decision to leave me (he thought I wasn't good enough - I must say I'm not very talented, but I work really hard, and just adore dancing). There is possibility for me to dance with another partner, who is hard-working, serious, tolerant, and trustworthy, and a very nice person. The only problem is that he is in the stronger category, and I'm not sure I'm ready to change categories already. I think I should dance in my current category for at least 6 months or maybe one year. (I'm C, and he's B). Or I'll have to work really really hard to catch up - and I'm not sure if I can do it. And I feel sorry for leaving my current partner. I'm thinking about this for months, and now the time has come to make a decision. I know I would more enjoy dancing with this new guy, but...Heeeeelp!

Sincerely yours, Martina.

Dear Martina,

Never look a gift horse in the mouth!!! Take you chance to dance with the new partner and do it now, You'll catch up if he's really a nice person, and all that.... then you'd be a fool to miss out on you chance, you work hard and enjoy it, well what are you waiting for? give r Moody the heave ho and get strutting you stuff with mr Right!!!! Do what your feelings tell you, don't hang around with someone who makes you feel like two bits, be with someone who makes you feel like a million dollars!!!!

Good Luck
