When You “Tripped Up” in Partnership
When Tara was in her mid 20’s, in college, she moved to Boston from Germany where she had done a year long program. She felt lonely when she was there so she took up ballroom dancing classes while she was there. When she came back to Boston she didn’t know anyone either. She then took up dancing once again. She had a lot of fun doing it and started to get better. She even ended up becoming an amateur doing it. She ended up doing competitions with her dance instructor. She then ended up dating him and he was significantly older.

That “Duh” Moment in Partnership
Tara relates back to that whole ballroom dancing phase. She became friendly with her coworker who was senior to her. She always had a rule that you don’t date people you work with. But she didn’t apply this to ballroom dancing. She was sort of cautious with her now husband. She held back some because he worked with her.
