Tango: my life as a not-so-good leader

And you thought that YOU were the worst dancer in the world ?

Wait and see 

They say that in Buenos Aires, men won't invite you (or, if you're a guy, women will ignore your invitations) until, having seen you dancing for a while, they've made up their mind about your skill. (Somehow this means you're in a quite hopeless situation if you come alone in a milonga where you don't know anybody...)

Last saturday I went to a free milonga, full of people, and had a few dances with two girls I knew. Then, three unknown ladies came to me and asked me to invite them. All of them, as it became obvious to me after only a few steps, were near-to absolute beginners. And in a flash I understood that after my two first dances they had labelled me too as "beginner". One of them even said: "I was so impressed by all these wonderful milongueros here making these nice steps, but I knew they would never invite me; and then I saw you on the dance floor, and thought that you, for sure, would not refuse."

Well well... I intended to go to Confiteria La Ideal during my trip to Buenos-Aires next year and try to get a few dances there, but I bet I'll have to find a plan B.
