Something 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. funny enough, there seem to be some interesting similarities when it comes to signs that a man is dating or married to a belly dancer.
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.
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
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
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.
