DH and I discovered very early in our relationship that physical activity is not a place where we have common ground. We tried tennis, handball, biking, and hiking all with frustrating results. He is, and always has been, more athletic than I am/was. Plus he is more competitive so I would want to go out and "hit the ball around and generally just move around a bit" he wanted to "win the trophy." With biking, I lived in Florida and spent my life riding bikes with no gears, you know beach type rambling along checking out the guys. He did trail and mountain biking in West Virginia. Same with hiking, I was strolling the beach all day long, he was hiking mountains. We did swing dancing and that worked because I am a better dancer to start with and neither one of us knew how to swing dance. So although he was more athletic I was a slightly faster learner, and this kept us at approximately the same pace. Plus we both loved the music. He is willing to do that again if I could just find some lessons. I have found some but soooo expensive. We did it via Community Ed in Florida, so far not an option here.
