A: Do you enjoy going on dates?
B: Yes. I find dates to be a lot of fun.
A: What’s so fun about them?
B: They give me the opportunity to get to know someone better.
A: So you always have fun on dates?
B: Not always. I don’t always like the person I’m on the date with.
A: Why not?
B: My date may not be my type.
A: So then why would you ask them out in the first place?
B: I didn’t realize until after our date that they weren’t my type.
A: Sounds like a huge waste of time to me.
B: Now that I think about it, it really is sometimes.
A: Do you like dating?
B: It’s really a lot of fun.
A: What makes it so much fun?
B: It makes it easier to get to know somebody.
A: Are dates always fun to you?
B: Sometimes I may not like the person I’m having a date with.
A: Why is that?
B: The other person isn’t always my type.
A: Why would you bother going out with them then?
B: I didn’t know that they weren’t my type until after I got to know them better.
A: It seems to me that you’re wasting your time.
B: You are absolutely correct, sometimes it is a waste.
A: Are dates fun for you?
B: I enjoy dating a lot.
A: Why are they so fun for you?
B: Dates allow me to meet new people.
A: Your dates are always fun?
B: Well, I don’t always like who I’m dating; so not always.
A: How come?
B: The person I am dating may not be my type.
A: How come you asked them out if they weren’t your type?
B: You don’t always know what type of person you go on a date with until you know them well enough.
A: Dating sounds pointless.
B: Now that you mention it, sometimes you’re right.
A: Can I ask you a question?
B: Sure, what’s up?
A: Well, I was just wondering if you’d like to go out this Friday.
A: Yeah, I was thinking we could get a bite to eat and catch a movie.
B: That sounds like fun.
A: Of course, we can do something else if you’d like.
B: No, no, dinner and a movie sounds great.
A: Well, what time would you like me to pick you up?
B: How about 7:30?
A: That sounds good, so I’ll see you then.
B: Okay, cool.
A: May I ask you a quick question?
B: Of course.
A: How would you like to go on a date with me this Friday?
A: Well, I figured that we could go see a movie and get some dinner.
B: Cool, that sounds like it will be fun.
A: We can always do something else if you’d rather.
B: Not at all. I would love to go to dinner and a movie.
A: That’s great, so what time do you want me to come get you?
B: Is 7:30 okay?
A: Friday at 7:30 sounds perfect.
B: Great. See you then.
A: Can I ask you something?
B: Sure you can. What’s going on?
A: Would you go out with me on Friday?
B: Are you for real?
A: I thought that we could go to dinner and a movie.
B: That actually sounds like it would be a lot of fun.
A: Unless there’s something else you would prefer to do.
B: Actually, I would really like to go to dinner and a movie.
A: What time do you want me to come by and pick you up?
B: Is 7:30 cool with you?
A: That’s perfect, so I’ll see you then.
B: Perfect. I will see you on Friday.
A: Hi, Todd, how is it going?
B: Things are going well. How are you, Mary?
A: I’ve also been doing well.
B: You know I’ve been thinking about maybe taking in a movie this weekend. Do you like to go to the movies?
A: Yes, I really enjoy movies.
B: Well, I’ve been hoping that we could spend some time together away from here. I was wondering if you would like to go out Friday evening for dinner and a movie.
A: Sure, that sounds good.
B: Is there any movie in particular that you might be interested in?
A: I was thinking about that movie, “Australia.”
B: Yeah, that looks like one that we both might enjoy. If I picked you up at 7:00, would that work out OK for you?
A: Seven o’clock would be great!
B: Fine, then I’ll see you at 7:00. I am looking forward to a great evening!
A: Hey Todd, how are you?
B: I’ve been doing well. How are things with you, Mary?
A: Things are good with me also.
B: Mary, I was looking in the paper at the new movies coming out. Do you enjoy movies?
A: Yes, I go all the time.
B: I was hoping that you and I could maybe spend a Friday evening together. I was wondering if you would like to go with me this Friday to see a movie and get a bite to eat afterwards.
A: I would love to go out with you on Friday.
B: Do you have a certain movie that you would like to see?
A: I’ve heard a lot of things about the movie “Australia.”
B: You know, I was thinking that that would be a good movie to go see together. Would 7:00 be a good time to pick you up?
A: Seven o’clock would be perfect!
B: OK, I’ll pick you up at 7:00 then.
A: Todd, how have you been?
B: Everything is good. How have you been, Mary?
A: Perfect, couldn’t be better.
B: Mary, I was thinking that I might go to the movies this weekend. Do you go to the movies very often?
A: Yes, I like going to the movies.
B: Would you be interested in letting me take you to the movies on Friday? Maybe we could get a bite to eat afterwards.
A: I think I would enjoy seeing a movie with you on Friday.
B: I am not sure what movies are out right now. Have you heard of any that you might be interested in?
A: I think that that new movie, “Australia,” looks like it might be good.
B: That movie sounded interesting to me too. If I picked you up at 7:00, would that be too early?
A: I think that seven o’clock will work out well.
B: Perfect! Well, I’ll see you at 7:00 on Friday, then!
A: Hi, are you Mia?
B: I am Mia. You must be Rubin.
A: Yes, that’s me!
B: It’s so good to finally meet you. Karen has told me so much about you!
A: I hope that she had good things to say about me!
B: She had only good things to say. Did you have trouble finding me?
A: Well, how many beautiful women in a red dress by the fountain are there?
B: Thank you for the compliment!
A: So would you like to go get a bite to eat, Mia?
B: That sounds perfect. Lead the way!
A: Hi, is your name Mia?
B: Yes, my name is Mia. Are you Rubin?
A: Yes, I am Rubin!
B: Finally! The infamous Rubin! I’ve heard so much about you that I feel like I already know you.
A: Oh no, I hope they had positive things to say.
B: Don’t worry. All of the stories were good. How were you able to find me so quickly?
A: It was pretty easy to find the beautiful woman in a red dress next to the fountain.
B: Well, I guess that kind of narrowed it down!
A: Mia, could I interest you in some lunch down the street at my favorite cafe?
B: Yes, it’s a great day for a little walk and some lunch.
A: Hi, I am looking for a woman named Mia.
B: I think I am who you are looking for. You have got to be Rubin, then.
A: That would be me!
B: Rubin! Karen and Mike have spoken about you so often that I feel like I’ve met you before.
A: I hope that what they had to say was mostly good!
B: They only said wonderful things about you. You did a good job of finding me.
A: Finding the beautiful woman in a red dress next to the fountain wasn’t all that hard.
B: Yes, I guess it was a choice of me or the pigeons!
A: I was hoping that we could take a walk down the street to my favorite cafe.
B: Lunch sounds great! Let’s head on out!
A: Hi Linda, this is Todd.
B: Todd, good to hear from you!
A: I just wanted to tell you what a great time I had with you at the movies last week.
B: Me too, Todd! Thanks for suggesting that great movie.
A: I also enjoyed it and was wondering if you would like to go for a hike in the mountains with me on Saturday.
B: I would love to join you on a hike. Could I maybe bring a picnic lunch for us to eat on the trail?
A: Sure Linda, that’s a great suggestion.
B: Fine then, what time are we going to leave?
A: I was thinking maybe 9:00 or so, so that we could get started before the heat gets too bad.
B: Nine would be perfect. I’ll see you then!
A: Linda, this is Todd calling.
B: Todd, I am so happy you called!
A: Linda, I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed our time together last Friday night.
B: Boy, Todd, that was one great movie you picked out! Thanks for asking me to go with you!
A: I had a great time too and was thinking that maybe you might want to join me for a hike to the waterfalls on Saturday.
B: A hike would be great! Let me pack us a nice picnic lunch, OK?
A: Linda, that would be a perfect addition.
B: I’ll take care of the lunch then, and you can take care of the other plans. What time would you like to pick me up?
A: I was hoping to leave by 9:00 so that it won’t be too hot for the hike.
B: Nine is a great time to get started. I’ll see you on Saturday!
A: Oh hi, Linda, this is Todd.
B: Yes, Todd, how nice to hear your voice!
A: Linda, I just wanted to say that I had a wonderful evening with you last Friday.
B: I really enjoyed our evening together, Todd.
A: I had fun also and was wondering if you would like to go hiking with me in the mountains on Saturday.
B: Hiking would be perfect! May I bring along a picnic lunch for us to share?
A: A picnic lunch would be a nice thing to have along.
B: I’ll work on the lunch, and you can work out the details of where we will go. What time will you be at my house?
A: Nine would be good, don’t you think?
B: Nine is good. See you on Saturday!
A: John, I was talking to the travel agent about where we might be taking our vacation this year.
B: I am going fishing in Alaska with my friend, Mark.
A: What are you talking about?
B: What’s wrong with heading out with Mark for vacation?
A: You and I have been together for a whole year, and our vacation time should be about the two of us!
B: Really? Who made that rule up?
A: With that attitude, I don’t really think we have much more to discuss here.
B: That works for me!
A: John, I was looking through some magazines for ideas about where we might go on vacation this year.
B: I’ve already told my buddy, Mark, that I am going hunting with him in Alaska.
A: You can’t be serious!
B: Hey, I’ve always gone hunting or fishing on vacation. I am sorry that bothers you.
A: After a year together, I thought it pretty safe to assume that we would automatically spend our vacation together.
B: Says who? I don’t think that is necessarily the case.
A: You know, now that I think about it, I really don’t have much more to say to you at all!
B: Whatever you say!
A: Brian and Christina were mentioning that maybe it would be fun to go on vacation together this year, John.
B: I thought that I already told you that I am going with Mark to Alaska.
A: Are you kidding me?
B: You know what? You and I had no plans, so I made plans with Mark. What’s the problem?
A: We have been together for a year and usually, people who’ve been together a year, take their vacation together.
B: I don’t think that I ever heard of that rule before. Any more rules that you would like to tell me about?
A: Go on your vacation with Mark and when you come back, why don’t you just move in with him as well!
B: I am really looking forward to getting away from you. Far away from you!
A: Joe, how are you doing?
B: I am great! How about you, Mary? How are you?
A: I am doing great! Thank you for asking, Joe.
B: I was wondering if you want to go see a movie with me tonight?
A: I need to stay home tonight and finish my term paper.
B: OK. What about going to the movies on Friday night?
A: What were you planning on seeing?
B: I was thinking about seeing that one about the rapist serial killer.
A: How about “The Secret Life of Bees”?
B: That’s a chick flick!
A: Hi Joe, how are you doing today?
B: Things are going good today. How have you been doing, Mary?
A: Things are going well for me, Joe.
B: Want to go see a movie tonight?
A: My parents are taking me to dinner tonight.
B: Could you go with me to the movies on Friday night, instead?
A: What movie did you want to see?
B: There is a new horror flick about a rapist serial killer.
A: I was thinking that I would like to see “The Secret Life of Bees.”
B: Oh great! Sounds like something I need to bring Kleenex to!
A: Hey Joe, how have you been?
B: I am doing well. How about you, Mary?
A: I am doing OK, Joe.
B: There is a new movie at the mall that I want to see. Want to go with me?
A: I can’t because I already promised my roommate that I would go shopping with her.
B: I could go to the movies on Friday night instead. Would that be better?
A: Did you have a certain movie in mind?
B: I thought the movie about a serial killer who rapes and mutilates his victims would be a good choice.
A: I kind of wanted to see “The Secret Life of Bees.”
B: Maybe we can think of something somewhere between a chick flick and a horror movie!
A: Hi Kara, it’s Mike here.
B: Hi Mike, how are you doing?
A: I’m doing well, and you?
B: Everything is going great.
A: Kara, would you be interested in going to dinner again this Friday?
B: Mike, I had a good time too, but I am getting ready to move back to the east coast, so I think I shouldn’t get too involved right now.
A: Well, we could just go out as friends.
B: Right now, I think I need to really focus on matters at home, but thanks for a nice evening.
A: Hi Kara, this is Mike
B: Hello Mike. How are things going for you?
A: Great, how are you?
B: Fine. Everything is just fine.
A: Kara, I had a great time the other night and was wondering if you would like to go out again this weekend.
B: Mike, I enjoyed your company, but I am getting ready to graduate soon. I really need to focus on my studies.
A: Maybe I could help you with what you need to get done.
B: It would be better for me to just deal with getting my work done, but thank you for a lovely dinner.
A: Hello, this is Mike, Kara.
B: Mike! Good to hear from you. How are you?
A: Everything is fine, and how are you?
B: Things are going well with me.
A: Kara, I had fun the other night at the movies and was wondering if you would like to go out again this Friday.
B: Mike, I don’t think that it’s a good idea to go out again. I really need to focus on getting packed and ready to move back home.
A: Maybe we could just meet for coffee or something.
B: I can’t really deal with any distractions right now, but I appreciate the nice evening we spent together.
