I hesitated over looking for another dance partner after Mr. Rumba. It was becoming a daunting task, but should it feel like a task at all? If the match is meant to be, then the moves should flow effortlessly. The pressure to keep up my appearance as a youthful and sought- after dance partner made me feel anxious.. Men are so damn visual! But then again so are women. I wanted someone tall and fit and good looking too.
The next profile that caught my eye delivered just what it promised. It read:
Something out of the ordinary: 52 year old man, 6ft 6in. divorced with one son, looking to find someone to do things with. Owned my own business, performed around the world…I don’t have a lot of free time. He winked at me so I responded.
“Thanks for the notice. What kind of performing do you do?”
“I played cello. It’s a large instrument and fit my frame. I have played around the globe with symphony orchestras. Now I have my business making these beautiful instruments in my studio.”
I was hooked! I admired artists in all disciplines.I called him Mr.Salsa because these dancers move to the beat of many instruments. He was a gentle giant with a soulful voice. Mr. Salsa was sexy and smooth at improvisation. This attitude made me respond in a similar manner.
Our first meeting was just that easy. We both felt a moment of “I know you from somewhere” Had we met before? That afternoon was one of delight and discovery.
