Let’s read the dialogue. I will play Ron and you will play Emma. Then, we’ll switch roles.
Hi, Emma! There’s this girl that I’m courting, and I’m planning to take her out on a date.
Really? I’m totally surprised! It’s been a while, Ron!
I know, right? I just had to wait for the perfect person at the perfect timing.
That’s so sweet! So what’s your plan?
I don’t have any idea about this thing. Do you have any suggestions on how to pull this off?
Okay, so first thing to do is to find a nice restaurant. And please don’t be late!
I’ll take note of that. How about for the first date conversation starters?
Hmmm, yeah right. To save yourself from awkwardness, you could initiate a conversation about your experiences from your childhood.
That’s a nice idea.
