Myth exposed! Men don't like dancing.

    There has always been talk that a majority of men don't like to dance. Or, Some say that real men don't dance. Well, this video will shatter that myth.
    The original link didn't work, but, you can find the video in my favorites.


    If you get the video, it is called "I just wanna dance PTown Style . Sure it's a gay bar, but there sure seem to be a lot of guys dancing. It's a lot less about not liking dancing, and maybe who you are dancing with. Or, where you are dancing.

    I personally love it. Even if I have to do it alone.

    You're kidding right? hmm

      Yes I'm kidding! One of the biggest complaints I hear from women is that their husband or boyfriend doesn't like to dance, or won't take them out dancing.  It's not that 100 percent of men don't like dancing. It's just a big complaint that women have with their man.

      I hope that nobody took this seriously. I just post this for those people who assume that men don't like to dance. It just proves that they do. This is not my video, but if it was, I would certainly be out there dancing. I love the song too.

      If you're wondering if it's a gay bar. Yes it is. The boatslip in Provincetown.

        And, there is a good reason for them complaining about more than the average amount. Men when out in a bar scene are not that interested in dancing as much as they are about other things. So, a lot of women complain about it. It's a two-way street, the Men want what they want and Women want attention in public, which most men are not highly keen on.
        It might have been good if you mentioned to others to not take it seriously, before you posted. Just a thought. And, as for the video or song...I didn't watch or listen.
        It makes no difference. wink

    I have no rhythm. I dislike dancing intensely for that reason. But I will dance with my wife any time she wants to, because I love her and she loves to dance. 

    I hate when I see a man ignoring his partner who so obviously wants to dance. It immediately downgrades my opinion of them (unless they have physical impediments, of course).

    My hubby is a great dancer! And BTW, he's a "real" man - loves guns, fishing, muscle cars, power tools, etc. And he doesn't eat quiche. lol

      If you go to almost every kind of dance class, most often you will find a lot more women than men. Lucky for me I love dancing and find it spiritual

    I have two left feet and as much rhythm and moves of a corpse on the dance floor, but I do try and show Mrs Midnight Oil a good time on the dance floor when I can...

    I haven't danced for years, as I was tired of people thinking that I may have had an unfortunate accident and was in need of using the bathroom.  Now, if I go out to a club with friends, I am the one who looks after the coats.  Sometimes however, someone might force me to get up and dance, by grabbing my arm and dragging me onto the dancefloor.  I have to force a smile whilst being dragged around like a rag doll, with an expression like a rabbit caught in the headlights, and wishing that the club could have a bomb scare, so that everyone could be evacuated.   I am almost 40 years old, I have a 37" waistline, sciatica, eye bags, am permanently grumpy and have an interest in the fashion statements of Margaret Thatcher.  So please just leave me alone, I really don't want to dance.

      the only thing I don't like is being dragged into a conga line. Some people will find the strangest places to do it. Like in a swimming pool, or just walking through the supermarket. The most fun place was in the que while waiting in line for a roller coaster at six flags to Lady Gaga on gay pride day.

      People thought we were crazy, but you couldn't wipe the smiles off their faces. Not including the mom's covering their kids eyes. Fun stuff.

    I started dancing aged 8 and i loved every minute of it, tap,jazz,ballet,modern etc i couldnt get enough of it, but at the same time i played rygby an football and i also love my power tools and all things being assosiated with being a man in todays world.
    My friends found out and took the piss for ages in the end is said to them if you think im such a fairy iv got a show coming up come and watch this fairy see what you think, they came an watched not another bad word was said towards me... its men that wish they could dance are usually the ones who take the piss good on any man who takes to the floor and busts a move, its a great way to express yourself i still do it now aged 29....

      I still love to dance, and I'll be 46 in September. But, I know a little man who is 90, and he is out there dancing with the rest of us. He even knows how to 2-step to Carrie Underwood. (Not my thing) but, it sure is fun to watch.

    I've never learned to dance. As much as I always want to I can never seem to figure it out. Slow dancing, yeah sure, anyone can do that. But all this other stuff, I can't seem to get it. Not that I don't like dancing. Whenever my girl wants to, I go and I try to even if I look like an idiot, which I usually always do.

    I just found an awesome video of the same song on youtube. If you go to my youtube link at the top of the page, you will find the video in my favorites. It's called "I just wanna f#####G Dance!" The song is from Jerry Springer the musical.

    It's a great video featuring dance scenes from various musicals and cartoons. It's very cool, and makes you wanna dance! But, you have to listen to it from beginning to end, because it starts off kind of like a broadway showtune, and transforms into a great dance song. It's really well done!

    Check it out. Remember the link to my youtube page is in the original post. You'll see the video at the top of the list in my favorites. The video below that is the one I started with.

    I would like to state unequivocally that I am a pretty good dancer.

    You don't have to be a good dancer to like it. I have seen some guys on the dance floor that just stand in one spot, and move their arms. Looks like they are attempting to swim without being in the water or kicking their legs. But, if they are having a good time, that is all that matters.

    I am not a great dancer, But, some songs really get me going. "I just wanna F#####G dance" Is one of them.
