That seems about right to me. I know if I see someone I don't know I'm unlikely
to ask them to dance something complex (or even intermediate) as an initial dance.
That all changes if I've seen them do a few dances, or get talking about dance or
if they seem to be the type of a person who 'is a dancer' but just doesn't know that
particular dance. Its a bit easier being the guy here, because there a only a few
intermediate dances where the lady has to do something first.
I also occasionally get similar reactions, though I mostly blame it on the squire belt :)
