I hope this is not true. I have often found myself chatting with another
lady, and one of us asks the other to dance. Then a man will ask . Once I
have accepted a partner, be it man or woman, I most certainly will dance with
them. I have had some women say..." go ahead I am sure you'd rather dance
with a man!!!!" ... It is only courtesy to dance with the FIRST person
you said yes to! In this situation, I will usually say, Thankyou for
asking, but I already have a partner for this dance ( the sex of the partner
is irrelevent) would you like to do the next dance? (I don't term that
booking ahead!)
