There are obviously many things that strengthen a relationship, but I truly believe one of them is doing something together where there is a possibility of looking like a total fool. I LOVE dancing. And I especially love dancing with the person I’m dating. But I’ll be the first to admit that I can be the queen of stepping on my partner’s feet, and even head-butting him. Regardless, I have found that when I engage in an activity on a date where the two of us have to work together and learn something new, we end the evening knowing each other better. Our connection deepens and when we mess up, it’s a great time to just start laughing and enjoy each other’s company.
I love every minute that I get to go tango-dancing with Tom. We’re both quite new to it, so we’re constantly learning together. In the tango world, the instructors advise the girls to close their eyes at times so that they feel exactly where their partners are leading them. We all know the saying, “It takes two to tango.” Well, it also takes two to trust. And to me that is what tango is all about.
This shoot was very special because the pictures remind me of all the fun Tom and I have on our tango adventures.
