I love going out dancing with my girlfriends. I’ve been in a happy relationship for over year so it's not about meeting guys, it's just about having fun. Naturally though, guys come up and start to dance with us, usually for a few minutes or so we box them out so to speak.
A while back, my boyfriend asked me if I danced with other guys when I went out to the bars. I told him that I had, but I tried to avoid it for the most part. He was upset, and felt like I was giving off the wrong impression. Since I wouldn’t want him to be buying other girls drinks when he’s out with his guy friends, I promised him that I wouldn’t dance with other guys anymore.
I have followed through on this promise until recently. While out a couple months ago, a goofy guy started dancing with me. We were both doing silly moves from the 80s, and there was zero physical contact, but it was a lot of fun. My friends were laughing about it the next day, and my boyfriend overheard. He got really mad at me for breaking my promise, and now every time I mention going out, he makes a snide remark about it. I feel horrible for hurting him, but I just don’t think this attitude is deserved. Should I be forgiven for this silly misstep?
