trythis Posted October 2, 2008 Report Share Posted October 2, 2008 The 'upset dissappointed dancer" thread led me to this question. Another poster said that whenever she tries to vent to her friends who's children don't dance, they look at her like she is crazy. When my kids were little, before they started to dance, we had a nice group of friends.....I'm talking my husband and I. We all seemed to have kids the same ages and got together often. With the busy dance schedule during the week, and then of course the Nutcracker every December. Our ability to socialize was strickly curtailed. We haven't been able to attend a Christmas party in 7 years! I mean its our choice. We aren't really comfortable leaving our DD's at the Theatre, so we stay busy volunteering during the shows. But there are times when I feel really sad because I miss my old friends and they have understandibly filled thier social calendar with others who are free. I have one friend who seems quite hostile to me, as if my busy-ness was an affront to her. When I need to vent about dancing I tend to turn to this board. My friends don't get it, and while I have some great friends at the studio, sometimes you want to just vent, but you don't want to do it to someone at the studio, because you are just venting.... I really think this is part of the dance world because this board is so active. I have sought out other boards online and they are not anywhere near as active as this one. Quote Link to comment
