The theme of the relationship within a couple of Dancesport where both dancers are forced to think not only about themselves, but also about their partner is an important issue. Spending a lot of time together in training, travel, trials, competitions, victories and failures, all this can influence the relationship between partners, each of the dancers carries certain responsibilities, which can lead to success or inevitable separation. And if there is a relationship in the middle sentimental, it is even harder to cope.
Many people believe that the relationship between two dancers is built by itself if you only spend time in daily preparation and you concentrate on the success of the duo forgetting the most important thing – the human factor – that can play tricks on you at the most important moment .
It is worth remembering that you dance with a person who has his own interests, fears, motivations, tastes, that is to say with his own life, and if you know him only in part, that is in the dance, sooner or later the couple will break. Pay attention to your partner, be interested in her and be flexible when looking for solutions to possible problems, in most cases helps to avoid failures to each dancer and the couple as a whole.
The most important thing is to have common interests. One of them you already share, it’s the dance. The second has to be your OBJECTIVE, this is BASIC. After the desire to compete, aspirations, and then needs.
Here we leave you 5 rules that both dancers and dancers must follow:
1- Be patient, kind and more convincing.
Nobody is going to pay attention to you if you are self-centered, conceited and think more about yourself than your partner. Even if it’s in the background like that, an intelligent person knows that he can not show it, but on the contrary, he can help your partner if he admits it, and if not, do not reproach him, not impose his vision of the dance, allow him to develop on its own, even if you have much more experience. Left hand.
Look at each situation from different sides, from different perspectives.
2- If you have angered your partner, what should you do? Buy a chocolate bar, flowers or a basket of fruit, but you should not evade. The fault of any conflict is of both, but the girls (as a rule) do not usually admit it, so guys, do not behave the same, solve the problem in any way described above. You have to be generous and diplomatic. When it comes to training, you should always look at the situation from both sides, so it will be easier for you to understand the behavior of your partner. And remember, in a dance room there is no place for the words «I do not want» and «I can not», because if not, why are you there?
3- Do not be grumpy, rigorous or plaste!
Sometimes a good relationship is established from the first moment. Because it happens? Because the characters of two people are similar, they do not take everything to the tremendous, they do not create conflicts, but they try to solve them all with a certain irony, laughing as much of what happened as of themselves. A lost tournament is not the end of the world, and if one is late after work, it is not a tragedy either. Everything is much easier than you think. So do not be plaste and grumpy, because in that case surely no one will want to be with you.
4- Tell your partner how important it is, and what is more important: Tell yourself to counteract self-centeredness!
Think of 5 qualities of your partner that more values, and remember them every time a conflict arises or your partner messes up. Keep it in mind.
Also, tell your partner that you care and that you value her. Not only do girls like nice words, boys also like to listen to them, but do not overdo it, moderation above all.
5- Invite your partner to a coffee or a chocolate bar, if you come to the story, because yes. Break with monotony.
There are many holidays to congratulate your partner, is another reason to remind you that you value. So do not forget about birthdays and other important dates. Each dancer will gladly remember the anniversary of their first tournament or the first training together. That day invite your partner to a coffee or a chocolate bar. Why? Because the creation of a healthy relationship depends only on you. Even if today things are fatal, you have time, imagination and strength to change it for the better, so do not stand still, take a chance.
Maintaining a Dance Couple relationship is difficult as it is in a relationship.
Many times the constant changes of couple, lost times to find others, etc., delay us greatly in the advance, and hurt us.
On the other hand, the passage of time tends to cause everything to fall into monotony. The principles are all exciting, but the passage of time cools the relationships and turns everything gray. That is the phenomenon of Disenchantment, to which we are all vulnerable, but some more and others less.
If you have «identified» that phenomenon, you can try to immunize yourself, but if not, it will happen many times that you start with enthusiasm an activity, or a relationship and time after everything goes off, appearing defects that more than being them, are appreciations of DISENCHANTMENT. If you are one of those people who change a lot of couple and you soon see everything negative with everyone, you will most likely suffer from that evil, the evil of the Disenchantment. And that will not let you move forward because for some things or for others always tend to end sports relations. Watch that it does not happen to you, because you will be the most harmed.
