▶ Dialogue


 What happened on your date last night?


 Nothing. I was stood up.


 Really? You're joking, right?


 No, I've never felt so embarrassed.


 But, I thought you said that the two of you hit it off from the moment you met.


 We did. And, I mean, he was really flirting with me. I can't understand it.


 Oh, really? Like how?


 Oh, you know. Giving me lots of compliments, touching my arm, that kind of thing.


 In my experience, if  a guy's too forward he's probably just out for a good time.


 Yeah, I guess your right. He probably just wanted a bit of fun for the evening.


 Hey, forget about him. I know a nice guy who's just your type. How about I set you two up on a blind date?


 Really? But what if I'm not his type? I'm not sure I could stand being turned down again right now.


 Don't worry! Just go out and have fun together and see what happens.


 Okay, I'll think about it. Anyhow, how are things going with your boyfriend? You've been dating for a couple of years, right?


 Don't ask! I found out that the creep was cheating on me with on of my friends, so I dumped him a couple of weeks ago.


 I can't believe it. You guys seemed so happy together.


 Yeah, I really fell for him in a big way, it's just a shame that I couldn't see what sort of gut he really was.


 Well, it looks like we're both in a similar situation! Why don't we just forget about men and have a girl's night out? It'll be just like old times.

▶ Discussion

1. Do you think that age difference is important when dating? Would you date someone much older or younger than you? Why or why not?

2. Do you think your parents would have the problem if you married someone much older or younger than you? Would it make a difference if that person were rich?

3. Do you like to flirt? If so, what do you usually do? Where? With whom? Why?

4. Do you think that flirting is just for fun, or is it something more serious? Explain your opinion.

5. Do you ever set your friends up on blind dates? If so, have you had much success? Do you think that blind dates are a good way to meet someone special? Why or why not?

< Example Answer >

Age difference is not important, but if the difference is too big, then the relationship is not good.

If the age difference is within 5 years, then it's OK.

I think about and judge his appearance.

When I'm older, I will prefer younger girls.

I think blind dates, when introduced through a friend, are a good way to meet someone special. The friend knows their good points and can make a good match.
