Speaking

I had one blind date experience. He was introduced by my colleague, he works in Huawei, he is a software engineer. He coding. We just had a dinner, just about one hour. I feel like forever. When I was there, I was thinking, what time is now, I must go home. When I check the time, it’s just 8 o’clock. I really feel that very long time. I just think what should I say, what should we talk about. He is good at talking, I pretend to listen, I’m not interested what he says but my colleague is very warm-hearted. She encouraged me to have a try, so I went there. I thought I should have a try, but it was boring, we don’t talk to each other after the dinner. I don’t think I dislike him, I just feel very long time. I was rush back to home and he want to walk street and I said no, I had to go to home. I really thought it’s really late.

I had one blind date experience. He was introduced by my colleague, he works in Huawei, he is a software engineer. He specializes in coding. We just had a dinner for about one hour. It felt like forever. When I was there, I was always thinking about the time, I must go home. When I checked the time, it was just 8 o’clock. I really felt that it had been a very long time. I just think about what should I say, what should we talk about. He is good at talking, I pretend to listen, I’m not interested in what he says but my colleague is very warm-hearted. She encouraged me to have a try, so I went there. I thought I should give it a try, but it was boring, we didn’t talk to each other after the dinner. I don’t think I dislike him, I just thought the dinner took a very long time. I was in a rush to go back to home and he wanted to walk around the street and I said no, I had to go to home. I really thought it was too late.
