Speaking

I like watching QPS. It’s a TV show like reality. Two teams talking about one topic. They compete to win the competition. The last topic is about “if you break up with your boyfriend or girlfriend, do you need to let the other one return the money?” The team that support the subject, they said: “they agree to ask the other one to return the money.” Their point-of-view is: if you want to stop the relationship with the other, it is best to ask the other one to return the money. The other one can stop thinking about you. Otherwise, the other one might think you may like them. The other team who is against this subject, they said: “between two in a relationship of two, it’s hard to calculate the money. If you buy something to other one and you get love”. And the other point of this team is “if you ask the other one to return the money, you don’t really want to break up with your girlfriend or boyfriend because you continue to contact the other one”.

The topic is weird, but I think if it is me, I’m not ask the other one to return the money because I don’t want to talk with him anymore. I remember it’s one of my colleague talked to me that he has a friend who know each other by introduce. Finally the girl don’t agree to be together with the boy and the boy showed up.

Revised: 

I like/enjoy watching QPS. It’s a reality TV show like reality. Two teams talking about one topic. They compete to win the competition. The last topic is was about “if you break up with your boyfriend or girlfriend, would you ask them to return the money?” The team that supported the subject, they said: “they agree to ask the other one to return the money.” Their point-of-view/opinion is: “if you want to end the relationship with the other, it is best to ask the other one/person to return the money. The other person will stop thinking about you. Otherwise, the other one might think you might like them.” The other team who is against this subject, they said: “between two in a relationship of two, it’s hard to calculate the money. If you buy something for the other one,  you receive love in return“. And the other opinion of this team is “if you ask them to return the money, you don’t really want to break up with your girlfriend or boyfriend because you continue to contact the other one“.

The topic is weird, but I think if it is me, I’m not going to ask the other to return the money because I don’t want to talk to him anymore. I remember it’s one of my colleague’s told me that he has a friend who knows a girl who was introduced to him. Finally, the girl didn’t agree to be together with the boy and the boy showed up with a list of expenses.
