12 Signs a Man has a Belly Dancer as a Girlfriend/Wife

elly-dance-boyfriend-signsSomething I find really great about our local belly dance community here in Orlando is that I often see a lot of men coming out to shows to support their girlfriend or wife. It is really nice that my honey can feel comfortable attending shows and not feel like he is the only one there.

In honor of my raging flu which has me stationary in bed, I decided to write this funny hump day blog. Please feel free to share and add some of your own points in the comments section at the end of this blog.

1. He knows that when you are down or deserving of a little gift, sparkly items do the trick

2. He has a couple of your belly dance songs in his itunes and maybe even as a ringtone for you when you call

3. He knows all the belly dance gossip

4. He knows several belly dancers and will remember if he has seen them at a hafla or gala

5. He has your business cards around for by chance encounters where they can refer you

6. Hookah and tea are now part of his life

7. He shows up to work and realizes he missed a spot of glitter on his clothes…again

8. He knows common belly dance terms such as Zhagareet, habibi, aiwa and kaftan

9. When a show is fast approaching, he knows how to handle belly dance stress days where you might be a bit overly short tempered

10. He has come to terms with the fact that bhuz is necessary form of relaxation for his lady

11. He is way too comfortable with the sight of swords, daggers, fire and other dangerous props

12. He knows how to shimmy at minimum…and might even be better at it too lol!

Please please please add some of your own ideas  in the comments box below. It would be so fun to see what others have to add that are not only just in the Orlando Belly Dance community, but also across the world.

He has learned how to clap along with 9/8 time signature, and can show other people how.

He has a t-shirt with the troupe logo on it that says “Road crew” on the sleeves. True story 😀
