    Ok.....I don't think we've ever talked about this. But what I want to ask you all today is...if you wanted a Skating Partner....what type of Partnership would you want? Please mark all that apply. Please include if you would do Dance or Pairs. I myself would do Both Pairs and Dance. If I had to choose though. I'd say Dance.

    I think the most important thing would be someone I could skate with and who I got along with. It wouldn't really matter who introduced me to them or how I met them.

    I put partnership with a friend and it would be for dance.
    I already skated with my brother and that ain't happening again (he hasn't skated since we quit competing and is now a cop). It's certainly easy when you skate with a sibling because there's always mom and dad to referee but now I'd want to skate with a friend because since I'm an adult skating is purely for fun.

    I voted "other" because I want my rich daddy to find me a Russian Hunk pair partner, and pay my expenses while I live and train in St. Petersburg. (wink)

    I would do both pairs and dance if I got the opportunity, but I love ice dance so I would pick that over pairs. I'm working on my pre-silver dances, and I've tested the standard track and solo track, but there are no ice dancing males in my area except one, and he's not interested in competing with a partner, plus he's on a lower level for dance than I am.

    I wouldn't care, I just would love to find an ice dance partner. Any kind of match-up would work, I'd be okay with anything. Of course a friend would be nice, but like I said, there are no male dancers around here except that one.

    Absolutely. That's my case.
    But it's not only a matter of friendship. I need to feel good and comfortable, and it's harder to find than just a friend. lol

    So true to the bolded. You don't want skating with a partner to be a "chore".
