I am very confused about whether to stay or not with my current partner. We have been dancing roughly 6 months together even though only in exclusive partnership in the last 4 months or so. Everyone seems to think that DP is not good enough for me and are not shy to tell me blatantly. Thing ranges from coaches to judges to dancing peers. I even have a few boys telling me why I stay with my current DP and not break up and dance with them instead. A boy came up to me last weekend at the comp and offer me try out as he said DP made me look so bad at the comp. I was rather offended ! I have been sitting down and thinking about the positive and negative of DP. Positive: - DP is hard working and diligent - DP is not argumentative - DP looks good on the floor (shallow I know but still ....) - DP has great work ethics - DP is fair esp reg finances Negative: - DP is a slow learner - DP have very short attention span - DP is impatient - DP does not like to think outside the box/conservative I really don't want to breakup with DP but I am wondering whether staying with him will be holding me back from both personal growth and competition result. What do you think ?
