I have been a follower of Golden Skate for a long time but have never made an account until today. The reason being is that I need some advice.
I am an ice dance hopeful working my way through my tests with my coach (testing junior at next test date). We have been searching for a partner for a while now, and i realize this is not always a quick process and can often take months or years to find someone who is a match. However I have recently had my parents tell me that unless I can find a partner by early next year, I will have to quit skating.
I was wondering if you guys could give me some advice here. Is this a realistic time limit to set on finding a partner? Do you have any stories on people who have taken a long time to find a partner but then had some success?
Also any advice on talking my parents out of this?
Would be greatly appreciated.....
