The metaphor of tango for quirkytogether Enter tango.

Tango, though rooted in an era when women were not equal, with decidedly machista roots, is such an apt metaphor for quirkytogether.

To create relationships that let us be who we are and support us to grow as individuals and as a couple.

Where we show up fully as who we are, and share the things we want to share out of desire and not obligation or adherence to the social scripts.

I hope they are relevant to you whether you dance or not. It can also teach us a lot about how to grow as people, individually and in relationship.

There's a reason that I, an author who writes about singleness and relationships, became captivated with tango almost three years ago and uprooted my life to live in the mecca of tango, Buenos Aires, for 8 months.

I want to share with you what I have learned from dancing tango and how those lessons can help you grow as a person and in a relationship. I fell in love with tango at first sight when I was traveling in Colombia in 2010.

I moved to Buenos Aires in October 2012 to soak up tango culture at the source.

This is why tango has the capacity to heal issues that we are or not aware of.

By fixing the physical, the mind and emotions will follow.

When you and your partner have both the connection to each other and the connection to their own bodies in their own axis, you have magic.
