To the tall, skinny girl with curly hair, glasses, and a knit cap at December Gaycation: You were easily the cutest girl in the room, but why do you go out dancing if you're not going to dance? Yes, the DJ had weirdly long transitions that lost the groove, but you and your friends just stood there at the edge of the dance floor making fun of the music, even during the good parts. Your group was there for far too long to have any excuse for not dancing. Making the best of an imperfect situation is attractive, and getting into it and having fun is attractive. There was at least one person in the room who wanted to dance with you—if only you had been dancing.—Anonymous
