A few Saturdays ago, after we returned home from running errands, I came into the house and turned on the radio to the R&B Quiet Storm station. I usually head straight upstairs to take a nap after a long day out. This time I grabbed his hand and said, "Dance with me". He laughed a little and said, "I'm not a good dancer." I told him, "Neither am I. Let's dance badly together." We basically just slowly spun around and around, completely off-beat to the music, and stepped on each others feet. It was fun.
What made this a tiny victory for me is the song that came on happens to be on my go-to limerent playlist. All those songs I dedicated in my heart to ExLO, don't belong to him. I'm the one who "assigned" those songs to him.
Will we dance every day or every Saturday? No, but it's nice to know that we still want to dance with each other.

Might I suggest taking dancing lessons in your home, just the two of you, lessons on you TV or computer, three nights a week for 15 minutes, regularly scheduled as just for fun!

I love that you danced with your husband, whether either of you are good at it or not.
Music has always been a way that my DH and I connect. We have entertained our children for years with spontaneous Saturday afternoon dance sessions in the living room. I'm happy for you that you could bring yourselves together over a song that once triggered happy/sad/longing feelings of the old Free Bird.
