My Tango Journey

My tango journey continues and it teaches me so much about life. I’m writing about my revelations through tango for my new book so those are still getting formed and I’m excited to share them with you–not because everyone needs to learn tango to grow, but as an example of how we can grow in many surprising ways when we dedicate ourselves to something we love. Tango happens to be particularly rich because it offers so many metaphors about being strong in yourself and intimate with another. For now I will share a recent dance with you . . . this took place in Buenos Aires but I’m dancing with a Colombian teacher.

    Thanks Thomas. Javi is a genius tango teacher. A lot of my most formative tango teachers have been Colombian. . . they have a way of speaking to the heart while also teaching technique.

Hello. . . I’m a writer and a dating + relationship coach for independent singles.

rsz_untitled-4098-edit Back in 2000 I started the quirkyalone movement helping women and men celebrate their lives whether they are single or in a relationship. According to the New York Times, "Ms. Cagen is not against setups or dating, online or otherwise. She is emphatically not against sex. Rather, she writes, she is anti-dull relationship." Here's my story and how I help.
