Date a Man who Dances

By Lukejdavi

Date a man who dances because a man who dances is one of the strongest men alive. A man who dances has faced his peers and told them “Begone, give me room to move.” He is no ordinary man, when you date a man who dances that strength lies by your side. Within easy reach is a man who has convictions and isn’t afraid to live by them, When you date a man who dances you can trust he is standing behind his conviction that you are a person worth dating and he won’t back down. A man who dances may have strength in his arms but his real strength lies in his mind and his passions and a man who dances has the strength to use them...

9 Inevitable Side Effects of Living in Buenos Aires

1. You will become a walking contradiction.

Portenos are walking contradictions, constructed from a fabric that only those who spend a certain amount of time in the city will understand. And it rubs off. After two years you will be a lean, mean, exercising machine, but will smoke like a chimney straight after your workout. You will stay out until seven in the morning on a Saturday having nursed one Fernet and Coke for the whole night. You will be in a ‘committed’ relationship, but anyone who takes your fancy is still fair game. The only thing thing that is not to be trifled with is ....

Grace Dent Learns Tango in Buenos Aires ... 

January 2012

 

Waiting at the gate to board the flight to Buenos Aires, an awful sense of disquiet creeps upon me. I'm making a huge mistake. I'm flying to Argentina for a week, on my own, to learn to dance the Argentine tango. What the hell am I doing? I don't speak a word of Spanish. I haven't danced a choreographed step since 1982, when I tapped non-rhythmically along to The Red, Red Robin in a community centre. The only things I know about Argentina are that it's very far away, we went to war with them once, and years ago I saw a film where their king appeared to be Jimmy Nail. And, worst of all, the Argentine tango (I've checked with YouTube) is a complex dance, built on instinct, litheness and a non-coy Latin American attitude to sensual proximity to strangers. I, on the other hand, am fully British in my dispensation of body contact. Grab me without permission and I go rigid and show fangs, like a tomcat being forced into a pet carrier.

Oh for the love of sweet, creamy ice cream, Buenos Aires might be the most helado-rific city in the whole wide world.

 

Welcome to year round summertime-wintertime-warm weather-cold weather bliss.

Walk down just about any block in this crazy capital and you’ll be sure to find a flavor-packed multicolored display of glorious ice cream, served by the cone, cup, or kilo.

 

We can thank Argentina’s Italian immigrants for this fantastic sweet obsession. Similar to gelato ... click here to read more
